Re: Features you loved that were removed from sequels

Game Freak adding the ability to have your first Pokemon in your team follow you about in Heart Gold and Soul Silver was pretty darn awesome. Then they didn't bother adding the feature to Black and White. I love all the improvements in Black and White but thought lack of that feature was a bit of a ...

Re: Sega Saturn Vs Sony Playstation 1

I heard it said somewhere that the whole double processor business being added so late - and it being such a rare occurrence then for a console to have a hardware design that complicated - meant there wasn't the easy dev environment that Playstation offered, most of the time devs were using only hal...

Re: GAME "has two weeks to turn its fortunes around"

Also when I walk around the supermarkets the prices are hardly much better, Tesco's prices can be shocking, they may very well sell the latest blockbusters cheaply for the first week, but after that they can be priced up ridiculously, I saw Resident Evil the Mercenaries in a local one to me for £44...

Re: Official Feedback Thread - Issue 78

I've gotten part way through the newest issue and I have to stay I surprisingly enjoyed it more than I thought I would! Though its fair to say, Imagine era RG has always been one to keep more on top of current trends, which I don't really see a problem with? I figure that sometimes a new game in a l...

Re: Rainbow Islands - First Impressions

Ahh I remember playing the megadrive version for the first time I started the first level and was enjoying making rainbows and traveling upwards, then suddenly things got faster, Rainbows didnt always get the baddies (leaving me very vulnerable if I ran out) and then got to the boss and died very qu...

Re: Charlie Brookers Gameswipe..

While being designed for an audience not so well acquainted with video games Gameswipe manages to please both casuals and fans quite nicely! I'm sure I wasnt the only one getting all excited at 3 second clips of various games and being all "aw look its on the telly yay!" and the genre discussions an...

Re: £53 GS credit and left the shop empty-handed

I have noticed some GS's selling Gamecube stock for slightly more decent prices recently. But PS2 and Xbox is about as far back as they go otherwise. Shame really - in America they have tons of retro back to GBA in Gamestop (their equivalent of GAME) which is pretty darn neat. Maybe you could purcha...

Re: Bring back UMBONGO!!!

I'm sure I had Um Bongo a few years back...and was promptly disappointed because it had been subject to the "healthy eating" brigade so it no longer tasted anything like it used to and more like cheap diluted tropical juice : ( If it comes back it should be like the recent comeback of Sunny D - drop...

Re: Dreamcast bonus content

Far as I know there isn't a database regarding the hidden extras on Dreamcast discs For the most part the extras were generally exclusive wallpapers. If you care about extra art it's a nice enough bonus I suppose but not that many games outside sega's own really provided them bar a few exceptions al...

Re: Sega intends to fix Sonic

Personally its not that Sega needs to "Fix" Sonic so much, I mean - that's pretty much what they have been *doing* since Sonic Adventure 2. Sonic Heroes started off the constant tweaking of the home console games and they keep trying to force gimmicks into each game in the hope of making it sell mor...

Re: Amazing eMag Load 1 News. IT'S BACK!!!!!!

Ordered!

Thanks for reprinting it guys : ) I'm running low on space and might have to consider shifting some magazines so getting the emag works out pretty good for me. Shame not more magazines do these DVD compilations really!

Re: Best Disney game

Ooh 16 bit: Mickey and Donald in World of Illusion (MD) Fantastic little game with some stunning animation and graphics for its time. Still looks lovely to this day. Plus its one of few games (bar maybe Capcom's SonSon) that has a co-op mode that really works for me. Other notable Disney Games: Alad...

Re: I'll go with a PSP - which version?

Go for PSP 2000, try to avoid the 3000 if possible as it has an AWFUL interlaced screen The 2000 initally wasnt hackable but I think it is now but I'm not entirely sure. Though; [soapbox]I would say at least try to buy some games for the system. The PSP is a great system but ultimately is failing be...
