Re: Samurais & Ninjas

There must be hundreds of Ninja/Samurai games out there but some of the obvious ones are Shinobi (personal favourites are Revenge of Shinobi and Shinobi III on Megadrive, but you can't really go wrong with Shinobi in general), Last Ninja on various home computers and the Tenchu games on PS1/PS2. I r...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Well officially speaking it wouldn't be a place to break copyright because legally licensed re-issues do exist. Unofficially it would be an obvious place to put items if you don't want customers to return products or report you citing that 'I thought this was an orginal printing'. This would hopeful...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

This may be a really bad idea but... How about if Ebay actually had a reissue/reprodutcion category? Not necessarily to condone unlicensed copying (there are some legal re-issues after all) but the idea being that creating an intentional grey area may have the benefit of creating a white area. I wis...

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

I was most disappointed in Rebel Strike. Rogue Squadron was really good on the N64 and then Rogue Leader on the Cube surpassed it in every way and was, at the time, mindblowing. Rebel Strike isn't a terrible game but so much of it just doesn't really work. The on-foot sections added nothing and were...

Re: Mega SG

As someone who has more CRTs than is sane I'd say don't rule out a 14" portable. We've become conditioned to thinking bigger is better regarding screens but a Megadrive is eminently playable on a decent 14" tube (it's how most of us played them back in the 90s in our bedrooms after all) and you can ...

Re: Mega SG

Yes, I have one, along with the 8-Bit Do wireless pad. It's a lovely, well made, machine and when I first hooked it up to my big HD TV I was amazed by how good the games looked. Having said that, I somehow find the games more difficult to play on this than on my original MD hooked up to a CRT. I'm n...

Re: From The Forum: 198

Darius. I have most of the games anyway so it will be nice to try something 'new' that wasn't released at the time - and a fast paced shooter seems like just the ticket to try the system out! After that I'll be diving into Monster World IV.

Re: TheC64!

They really need to look at the joystick. I have the mini and I like it, there are some good games on it, but the joystick is incredibly unresponsive which spoils the whole experience.

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.
