A 2nd NeoGeo AES system - £136.61 (inc. P&P) from Japan. I've only just realised how much it cost !!! Console was only £74.41 - seemed a bargain at the time, but didn't take into account the postage which was a hefty £52.20. Also Final Fantasy (£1.25) and Final Fantasy 2 (£1.73) from Japan for ...

Hi David,

You'll definately want to get a Jap Saturn or at the least a UK one with a multi-region games cartridge.

For some reason the rest of the world haven't been invited to a lot of Jap game release parties

Female gamers should be burnt at the stake.... like any other witch. Girls like knitting... and barbie dolls.... and the chippendales.... and films like "love actually". Men like boys toys.... and skimpily-clad birds.... and rock music.... and farting. Please - No complaints from the skirt-wearing, ...

Why oh why does every topic turn into waffle about everything except what the original post was about ?? Anyhow, I think the list is the man's personal top 50 and as such shouldn't be taken too seriously. We all have our favourites !! I would say that around 10 - 15 of the titles are right on the mo...

To be honest, I think that one of the Black Adder series would make a fantastic witty game.

Sorry, forgot to add.

How come us Brits are paying more than the yanks again ??

Only saving grace is that the rest of Europe will be paying about the same as us.

It seems to tick all the boxes, except IT'S GODDAMN AWFUL DESIGN ! Once again, another hand-held has got it wrong. I mean, just look where the controller and fire buttons are. And what's with the keyboard ?? Did a child of 3 somehow get his hands on the final design blueprint and nobody noticed ??

Come on, this has to be a joke. Me and all my friends had STs in their heyday and believe me, someone's got their voting wrong. Rainbow Islands only 50th, Canon Fodder only 43rd, Speedball only 39th, Xenon 2 only 34th, Speedball 2 only 29th, Populous only 28th, and I just can't believe that Bubble B...

Sorry, didn't make it clear that I use version 6.1 of Nero. Can't be doing with all the pointless upgrades. Alcohol is an excellent piece of burning software, but is more difficult to use than Nero. To be honest, every copy of DiscJuggler that I have ever had has always crashed, so have never had th...

Got some sort of ying & yang celtic frog on my chest - years before the celtic stuff became popular. Got a celtic design on my upper arm. Also got an Ozzy smiler on my knee, which me and 3 friends did whilst knocking off school sometime in '81 - not being bigheaded or anything, but mine easily turne...

Hi Overheat , I have burnt around 300 DC backup games using nothing but Nero - there's nothing better for DC images. I know that most DC images are in cdi format meant specifically for DiskJuggler - the only problem is that DJ is a pain in the arse to use (even if it works on your PC), at least for ...
