Re: LOZ - Twilight Princess

It was ok, but the motion controls added nothing, and a visual style closer to Wind Waker would benefit more considering the low-res and horsepower of the Wii. And the tutorial drags on for too long (this is a criticism that can be aimed at many other zelda's)

Re: From the forum issue 168 - Multiplayer scumbaggery

One of my friends was a terrible loser and couldn't accept that bumping other cars out of the track was a valid strategy on Micromachines. Once, after doing that too much on his house, playing on his megadrive, he expelled me from the place threatening me with his japanese katana. Seriously.

Re: Games that are better on inferior hardware

Castlevania, Battletoads, Contra, Teenage mutant hero turtles were all far superior on the NES than the Amiga. I'm both an Amiga and Castlevania fanboy, and I don't think I ever played Castlevania on the Amiga. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utFlAX9RJQM Music sounds good, even if it's sometimes ou...

Re: From the forum issue 168 - Multiplayer scumbaggery

Not me (I swear), but a friend of mine used to abuse the "push aside" button combo on the FIFA Soccer, Megadrive Version. After he scored the first, he just spammed the pushing to keep the game always interrupted. The referee never gave red cards this way, only yellows :D

Re: Discuss section - 167

Maybe either Gods or Magic Pockets. I know these games have some kind of cult following, but I know both games are slow and have rubbish controls. I just love the visual style and all the secrets.

Re: Retro Gamer issue 166

I have to echo here the disappointment with the disney feature, since it was not more than a glorified (incomplete) list of released Disney games. Specially because it wasn't so long ago that RG released a very good Aladdin feature. Loved the Amiga 500 feature, and also liked the Road Rash article, ...

Re: Games that are better on inferior hardware

Many games in the early 16-bit era were better on 8 bit machines. When i bought my Amiga I was so stoked to play some of the same games...but much better. Except normally they weren't. Robocop was my biggest disappointment. I think the Amiga version is clearly inferior to the spectrum.

Re: From the forum issue 138 - Point and click

I love point and click adventures and i think many of the newer games owe nothing to the Lucasarts and Sierra games of the past. The Dream Machine and The Whispered World, for example, should be mentioned among the best.

Re: Blogs

I write a blog about Amiga Games in a childhood memoirs style. These are the games that had the biggest importance on my upbringing.

Everyone is invited to take a look. I hope you enjoy it.

Re: From the forum issue 126 - Favourite isometric games

Btw in return for the poster who reminded me of Escape from colditz, i wanted to mention, there is a port of this to the psp. Its not perfect, nor is it advertised around, but it plays fantastic. Well worth hunting down if you can. It also seems that the port is actually an improvement since you do...

Re: Scary bosses?

That bastard vampire at the end of Rainbow Island world 3. He's my arch nemesis.

Also, Dark Souls is filled with scary bosses. I can't choose just one of them.

Re: From the forum issue 126 - Favourite isometric games

Does Heimdall counts? (just look at my avatar to see how much i like the game)

If not, i choose Escape from Colditz. No! Cadaver!

It's quite hard really, as i love isometric games.
