Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

They need to apply the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality - that'll stop bad games getting on the system! :lol:

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

I love the MD, it's my favourite console. If you enjoyed Revenge of Shinobi I'd really recommend Shinobi III - Return of the Ninja Master - one of the best 16bit action games ever made IMHO. Shadow Dancer is good too. One of my personal favourites is Ranger X. Not hugely long or difficult but it's e...

Re: CRT 14" TV recommendations. Prices rising!

I have a Beovision Avant VCR 32 CRT TV which I’m trying to find a home for. Anyone interested? I’d like £35 or it as I had to buy a replacement remote. It’s a bargain for the right person though. (If you look it up online some people say it auto stretches the picture to 16:9 but you can change it ba...

Re: CRT 14" TV recommendations. Prices rising!

The trinitrons are nice but I have a couple of Phillips CRTs which are bloody lovely, so don't forsake other brands. I even have a cheap Matsui (Dixons own brand) 14" and it's fine. I used to use it all the time for lightgun games.

Re: Master System must haves?

A PAL Master System really suffers from the 50hz slow down if you ask me. Even decent games like Rastan and Lucky Dime Caper feel extremely sluggish. I don't know why it seems more noticable on the Master System than on other systems - I guess the games must have just been a bit slower to begin with...

Re: When was the NES released in the UK and the rest of Europe?

In my area (Great Yarmouth) the NES was well and truly on the radar before the Turtles pack came out. It had been on sale, with a very substantial display and demo unit (with just about every black-box game available to play, along with others such as RC Pro Am, Castlevania, Mike Tyson's Punch Out)...

Did you ever have to call a gaming helpline - and if so why?

In the days before the internet many games used to have a helpline number printed in the back of the manual. Did you ever call one? If so why? - I think the first time I ever used one was for Super Metroid. I think I had to use the X Ray beam on a bit of wall somewhere but I'd got totally stuck and ...

Re: Recommended games for 3 or more simultaneous local players

It depends on how far back you want to go. Gamecube era there are loads of 4 player racing games and also the likes of Super Monkey Ball and Zelda: Four Swords. N64 had obvious ones like Turok and Goldeneye. More generally, racing games tend to be a good bet (things like Super Off Road tend to suppo...

Re: Shooting Gallery Games Recommendations

I really liked the shooting gallery bits in the Robocop game. I thought it looked really cool how the lines moving along the X and Y axis formed the crosshair.
