Re: Fighting Fantasy

Picked up a Fighting Fantasy book yesterday for the first time in about 22 years. Crypt of The Sorcerer. Cost me £2 in a 2nd hand bookshop. Looking forward to running through it later. That book is basically impossible. The last enemy has SKILL 12 and kills instantly if you get 2 hits in a row. I w...

Re: Questions for Barry Leitch

Hi Barry, the soundtrack for Hero Quest is one of my favourite ever. I still listen to it regularly without getting fed of it. Did you have any particular inspiration for it? It kind of gives me a classic Heavy Metal vibe.

EDIT: Damn, too late

Re: From The Forum Issue 201

Although I started with the original Game Boy, I have to say Order of Ecclesia for the Nintendo DS. I love the Igavania games and for me Ecclesia is the absolute best. It also has some of the best boss fights ever.

Turrican CD available for ordering from outside the UK?

Can anyone confirm if the CD comes with the magazine if I order it from other European country (in this case Portugal)?

Paradise. Sometimes it's just good the enjoy the scenery without pressure. That is, until you spot that car that you have to smash to add to your collection.

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.
