Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 145

A really good issue! As everyone said, the cover is awesome and the Japanese text on the front reminds me of Super Play. I particularly enjoyed the Arkanoid and Simon Pick features. Simon Pick's a guy I know more for his later games so it was great to learn more about his earlier days! And Space Har...

Thanks quantum! Well Skaven is releasing a lot of music (mainly via his soundcloud) and Gore is up to all sorts of things it seems!

Re: From The Forum 144 - Best Yu Suzuki game

Shenmue. It captured a magic and spirit into a narrative, made a world where everything felt alive and made it so that everything continued regardless of my actions. It tied it all together into a multi-faceted adventure which is far more influential then people realise.

Re: best size crt tv?

It's probably nostalgia talking but for me a 21" TV was always the best back in the day. Glad I still kept a few for the light gun games!

Re: DOOM the new one

Before E3 there wasn't really much to go one so I was a bit concerned beforehand. But so far, it looks pretty censored awesome. It seems to be making the most of technology but done with a straightforward no-nonsense mindset. And the map editor looks sweet. Bethesda put on a great show at E3 and thi...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 143

I did wonder what people would make of Max Payne's status as a retro game. I usually say that when you're coming towards 15 years old then you're fairly safe as people have often reached adult-hood by then (as much as we may regret it!) A small note regarding the Max Payne article: the real name of ...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi all, Thought I should actually introduce myself properly! Just your friendly neighbourhood freelancer here - I've been writing a few things for the mag recently so I thought I'd pop in and say hi! Although born at the end of the 80s, I had an early start in gaming from my older brothers with the ...

Re: Discuss Time! Final Fantasy VII remake

It's a generation defining game being remade with members of the original team involved, with hints of it being rebuilt from the ground up. This can only be a good thing.

Re: Who's excited about Shenmue III?

I finished the second game when I was twelve. I am now twenty-five and this announcement made me burst into tears. It's finally happening. My number one game will have its number three.

Re: Capcom showing more interest in megaman franchise

To be honest Capcom lost me a while ago with Megaman. I don't really think they sincerely cares about the series anymore. It just feels like they're only setting tracks because of the huge Mighty No. 9 interest. It might be a harsh opinion (and if you think differently that's totally fine) but Capco...

Re: Modern Reboot/retouches

Shenmue I&II HD - a guy can dream can't he?

Apart from that I'd also say Viewtiful Joe - I often like it when it's games that didn't get a huge look-in first time around.

If you're into things like Air and Royksopp then the following groups are all worth checking out - I'll put some albums in italics too. Boards of Canada - Tommorow's Harvest, Music Has The Right to Children Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, 'Allelujah! Don...

Re: In The Chair - Simon Pick

With your experiences working on several licensed games, what do you feel is the key to successfully adapting a licence for a computer game? How did you come up with the concept of Mad Nurse? What was the reaction you received from publishers? What is the conversion you're most proud of and why? Hav...
