That looks like an Awesome game on the Amiga!
That was quick! Yes, it is 'Awesome'... although this was taken from the Atari ST version (very similar to the Amiga).

Your go! :D

Hopefully this won't be too tricky to work out:

It was tricky! :lol:

But after a bit of research (and with the help of your clue) it appears to be 'Chisholm Trail'. :D

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

The whole "Limited digital release" seems like a bit of a con. Buy it now or you wont get chance to It does seem a little silly, but just buy the physical version instead! :D No SMG2 because it's the usual half arsed 'that'll do' when it comes to Nintendo putting stuff out. They are appalling with ...

I'm pretty sure Tetris 99 was cheaper digitally. :)
Actually, that’s not true. It cost me £17.99 and came with 12 months Nintendo online membership (which costs £17.99 on it’s own anyway) and the game also comes with a bonus full offline mode. So better value overall!

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So half a dozen games are cheaper physically? Here's my first party Switch collection - the majority of these were cheaper to buy physically. Not really a half dozen. https://i.imgur.com/pbmiGOa.jpg Mind you, by the time you read this on your archaic internet connection, it'll probably be a collect...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Compared to the sales on digital, I've only once bought a title cheaper physically (new - I haven't bothered with preowned). You might think that games are cheaper on cartridge... the pattern you'll usually see is that cartridge games retail at around 15-20% below the RRP... In contrast eShop sales...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Digital downloads are perfect for indie and retro titles, but for AAA titles I'll always go cartridge. Why? Prices are usually much cheaper (especially if you shop around) You get something collectable and tangible in your hand They have resale value No long download times (obviously except for patc...

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

^^^ I do enjoy SFV (all the DLC and update strategies from Capcom aside!) but whenever I haven't played it for a while, I end up in the training mode re-teaching myself the mechanics. It's certainly the least intuitive Street Fighter I have ever played. Compare that to my recent re-playing of Alpha...

Re: Screenshot challenge.

Re: Screenshot challenge.

Sorry, must have been a problem at my end, both images showing now.
