Dude, I didn't use any abusive language, so any hostility you're sensing is in your own mind. But if you don't want people to think you're a bit dumb, and comment accordingly, then don't say incredibly dumb things in public. Right, thats it - I'm finished with this forum. My only interest is with t...

I have no problem with the topics being discussed and the points raised on this forum, but I have started to notice quite a bit of hostility here recently that is turning it into the house of commons. Its a shame really, because the magazine is actually the best games publication on the shelves - bu...

That's just total cobblers Sorry, but anyone who thinks the two titles have gameplay that's even passingly alike clearly has no idea what the word means. Is it me or has this forum become hostile of late? I come here to discuss classic games not cures for cancer. :roll: I used to enjoy this site al...

A proper PS2/3 sequel to SOTN.

Comparing Outrun to Outrun2 is silly: Outrun2 has technology two decades ahead of the original! To be honest I cant really see why the original Outrun doesnt hold up today - its got clean, simple fun, amazing graphics, great soundtrack and exciting features(the starting line, the girl, the wind-surf...

I like Outrun for its developement. It was a huge hit back on its release, and if you are lucky enough to find one still in operation at the coast then it makes us old timers go "Ahhhhh Outrun! Love that game!". You sit down, pick a tune and just drive. Obviously it doesnt hold up to the games of to...

The original is like a cool classic, but the second is more a cheap snes-looky-likey.

I cant say I like going to the dentist, but my trick is as soon as you walk in that room keep your eyes fixed on the damn chair! Most of the problem is letting your mind run away with the fairies when viewing all those nice sharp instruments... Then When I am in the chair and he says "open wide" - c...

The weird thing is, on that score the IRA never succeeded. Despite an attack a week we never got forced to undress at the airport, never had to put our tiny tiny bottles in zip-lock bags, never got followed by CCTV all the way to work, never had to carry ID cards to prove we were a good citizen, ne...
