Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

There is very little constructive feedback in this thread. Most of it is just blatant moaning and people believing they can do better. It's easy to say 'Why didn't you do this?' when you are reading someone else's work. However when you are working to dead line and especially when you are working o...

Re: If you could turn one tv show/movie into an 8/16-bit gam

I really like the sound of a steady hand autopsy sub game Joefish.
Quincy would be a class game.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Lost Dragon, ipmarks - no-one is saying "don't give feedback", but yet again we get the same people calling the writers defensive and complaints about "the same names always featuring". And yet when I look through issue 126 I see new content and new names/interviews in every piece. There are new an...

Re: BBC 3 is going away

BBC3 is one of the most pathetic TV stations ive ever witnessed. I see your BBC3 and raise you ITV2. I see your ITV2 and raise you a Viva Only used to watch the bloody channel as it had South park and even then had to mute the adverts I see your Viva and raise you TLC... the channel that South Park...

Re: If you could turn one tv show/movie into an 8/16-bit gam

Quincy It's all getting a bit silly now! Quincy isn't that unreasonable. There's a number of CSI games for PC, most of them aren't doing anything that the ST or Amiga couldn't have done in a similar point n click/puzzle game combo. Ocean or Lucasarts could have made a good turn of it, the latter es...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

It's ridiculous that a small comment about not really liking the Knight Lore article has led to having to essentially explain myself to the author of said article. I've bought the magazine since Issue 1, and surely have earned the right to say I don't really like something in the magazine. I didn't...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

This is getting a bit out of hand and silly now.... how many more RG writers want to chip in and call me patronising? Also i never said anyone was patronising, so how i can be addressed with 'now who's being patronising?' Is confusing. I don't think i was rude at all to Martyn, rather i pointed out ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

I'm starting to question if it's now worth giving honest, constructive critiscm, if likes of myself, ipmarks etc have to defend or stand by honest comments we made on something we paid for, if writers are going to start saying we had no idea how hard it was to get hold of X, Y and Z, basically it's...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

ipmarks, looking over our feature planner I can only see an article about isometric games in general for issue 86 (it was the cover for the issue, a nice black and white image). Is that the one you're referring to? Could be... maybe I'm living in the past a bit, will have a think about the article ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

I don't think I've ever defended anything I've written on here before. I don't think I've needed to if I'm honest. But this feedback has made me go back and check the commission from Darran, re-read the article more than once, and try and work out if I've messed up! The idea of the article was to l...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

I have been holding back from posting on RG recently for various reasons but while I do see some valid points in what is being said, some of it is baffling. Like the "too much Atari 8-bit" issue that was brought up by several people (although Merman IIRC already answered this) it needs to be pointe...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

But yet again they cant win, they dont do it and people will moan, they do it and people will moan ! I wasn't moaning, I was offering my feedback on an article, in a feedback thread... controversial I know. I too think there should have been a Knight Lore article, it's one of my favourite games on ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Just out of interest, when was the last Knight Lore article? I'm not sure when specifically there was a knight Lore article, but all the Knight Lore facts in the article have been in the magazine before in articles about Isometric games in general or articles about Ultimate themselves. I love artic...
