I really loved Ultima IX, but anyone who's played it will probably recall a whole swag of things they disliked about it - like the shocking dialogue, unfortunate voice acting, underdeveloped story, linearity, shallow combat, useless merchants, and the BUGS! The fan-made patches help out a lot though...

I've managed to get through my copy of Castlevania for my Playchoice 10 cab. I'd forgotten how tough Death and Dracula were! I just played through Castlevania for the first time (prompted by the recent RG article). I was wondering what all the 'extreme difficulty' complaints were about until I came...

I'm thinking about writing a RG review of Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny (Apple II) to atone...

...and especially: Abuse (PC DOS) ** I just stumbled on this topic, and about two posts back I thought: 'what about Abuse for the PC?' Great game, although I never got anywhere... Super Contra (arcade) for me - I know there are better iterations, but I like that you only get 3 continues before you ...

I've also found the QJ.net downloads page extremely useful. Most of the downloads there work. I'm running 3.40-oe (from memory, been a while). As other replies have said, research research research. There are some great forums out there. I came to the PSP scene completely blind, but I've now got emu...

Wow, what a great response! I'm stoked, all four games remembered and identified. I'm going to go looking for all of those right now, freshly armed with your expertise! Thanks everyone. Incidentally, does anyone have a top 10 Master System games list they want to share? Mine are (not necessarily in ...

please help me find these classic games!

Hi all, My first ever post... I've been trying to track down 4 games from my childhood, and I'm hoping someone can help me: 1. A game that I think was called Tanglewood Tales - I found it on an unlabelled disk when I got my first very own computer (a Medfly Apple II compatible!) back in the 80s. It ...

Beautiful!

Hi Goldberg,

I just joined this morning (Australian time) and yours is the first post I saw.

Bloody fantastic! That's really inspirational! I hope you can keep up the good work after your move.

Cheers,
Rom.
