Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Lost Dragon has asked me to delete his account a few times since his return. He has asked again, so I have done as requested. The account is deactivated.

Should Lost Dragon want to become active again, he can contact me at RP. MPM

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

You know, sometimes you have to be a man and admit your mistakes, I now see that issue 126 and all of the preceding issues have been getting steadily better, infact-I would go as far as to say that the current issue is mana from heaven, ambrosia from the gods-it truly is the tome of Gaming perfecti...

Re: Dark Souls 2

which area are you having problems with? I've razed pretty much everywhere to the ground, odd few foes left in the wharf etc, but other areas hardly worth bothering with as i get so few souls in return, explored everywhere i can, only boss left to take down are those 3 sentinels and i know i'll loo...

Re: Essential jeff minter games

Been years since i had my ST, let alone played Jeff's Stargate (though still fondly recal Llamatron), did'nt he take the hyperspace out of either Defender 2 or Stargate?. I personally never got on with mouse controls, just did'nt feel 'right' for a game like Defender. With Defender 2000, i just dunn...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 125

I spoke to one of the Epyx guys a few years back who seemed to suggest that California Games 2 for the Lynx was indeed started as well as a couple of other Epyx games that never made it out - RC Destruction Derby and Barbarian Bodyguard (also known as Princess & The Barbarian). I also remember him ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 125

It was merely an example of people who worked on the machine, I didn't say that they did those games - it was a follow on comment. I don't see what is confusing about that. But anyway, I have answer for you regarding the Nebulus 2 question directly from one of Thalion's head honcho's: It is one of ...

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

Got a xbone this week. Quite happy with it, even if it is a glorified titanfall machine. Plants and zombies is great fun as well. My inital PS2 was little more than a 'glorified' Silent Hill 2 and GTA 3 machine, but those 2 alone proved the power of the machine to myself.Moved to an Xbox and for ag...

Re: Dark Souls 2

:cry: Never thought i'd say this, but i too like Crusto, are seriousily thinking of jacking this game in, for different reasons mind. I'm a level 77 Knight, been playing for 0ver 27 hrs, 33 mins and finally had my 1st invasion (and i was a hollow at that time). Have cleared all the decent areas out,...

Re: forum issues

The digital guys are looking at it and know how disappointed people are. I can't offer any more insight than that I'm afraid. When it crashes after you hit submit after typing a lengthy post/reply to your goodself that raises some valid points, as a poster, i'm left thinking...am i really going to ...

Re: Essential jeff minter games

Plans are all very well, but that's all they were. Also I'd argue that there's a big difference creating something that shows off the power of something, rather than how it would be in an actual game (PlayStation T-Rex anyone). When it comes to released stuff his games are fairly 'safe'. That doesn...

Re: Essential jeff minter games

Mot a huge fan TBH, I understand some people do like his games, but they are not really for me. Nothing to do with the man himself, but a lot of his most ardent fans do annoy me, they seem blind to the fact he recycles a lot of ideas or just updates existing games. It's odd.As i said earlier, Jeff ...

Re: Essential jeff minter games

Even as a Minter Fan, Jeff's work been very hit and miss, so i'm going to have to plump for: Llamatron ST (needs an modern update Jeff, please!!!!) Tempest 2000 (Jaguar). AMC A8/C64 See, I'd disagree on that. I think he's an incredibly consistent developer. You can certainly argue that he's somethi...
