I agree with this. NES and SNES games in PAL regions tend to be very expensive compared to North America. It's easier and cheaper to import a console and just collect NTSC copies.

Re: Best in game surround sound

While I wouldn't go as far as saying it sounds like surround, the effects had this quality to them where you felt like you could almost pinpoint where it was coming from. Which scared the censored out of me as you couldn't see in that direction because of the mist.

Re: Game And Watch batteries query

Just realised you originally asked for what batteries the Donkey Kong uses haha. Sorry I wasn't more informative. Glad you found it in the end though.

Re: Game And Watch batteries query

It's been so long that I've forgotten what batteries go in the Nintendo Game & Watches LCD games (the one I have is Donkey Kong). I know from a quick online search it's LR4x, but the button batteries I have are labelled "AG" plus a number, such as AG12, AG13 etc. Which of these is the same as the L...

Re: The effectiveness of silence

Silent Hill 2 uses a lack of music to scare the censored out of you. When you do hear a noise its so subtle you can't work out where it came from or if you're just imagining it.

Re: Your favourite race game tracks?

Being Australian, Bathurst is something I have to do as well. Actually I should go and watch the Bathurst 1000 also. Then i should ask the all important question........Holden or Ford? :wink: Ford all the way haha. I was really hoping for a win for Ford this year, but I will say Jamie Whincup drove...

Re: Your favourite race game tracks?

Being Australian, Bathurst is something I have to do as well. Actually I should go and watch the Bathurst 1000 also. I tend to prefer real tracks in games as I prefer the sim type game such as Live For Speed and rFactor. However Deep Forest in Gran Turismo is an amazing track, so much fun to drive i...

Re: Appaling games you enjoy.....

Chakan on the Mega Drive. The controls are awful and it is brutally hard (its meant to literally be impossible to finish as the boss kills you far too easily) with no password or save system.

But something about the graphics and atmosphere keep me coming back to have another go.

Re: the game chasers

Can someone please explain to me what was so bad about the Cheetahmen II kickstarter? You are getting an actual product for you pledge, I don't see the issue. Yeah the game itself is censored, its more of a collector piece than anything. However it's no different to a World Championship repro for ex...

Re: the game chasers

I really enjoy this show actually. The production value is excellent and it's quite entertaining. As for how easy it is I have no idea how they're able to do it, maybe Texas is better for that sort of stuff than the rest of the states :? I know in Australia it's next to impossible to find retro game...

Re: mega drive 2 power adaptor

As long as the power supply is 9v or 10v and it can deliver at least 850ma you'll be right. Afaik the plug size isn't anything weird.

Just make sure that if the power supply is not exactly 850ma then it is a regulated power supply, otherwise you could damage your console.

Found it! It's called Treasure MathStorm!

I remember the graphics being better but that'd just be memory being terrible I guess. Would have been impressive enough at the time.

I can't believe I thought the character was a monster hahah :lol:

Re: Educational Maths Game

A hell of a lot of the educational software we used at school was actually written in BBC Basic, and executed directly by a command line. Unfortunately, unless you can remember part of the name or the company that made it, I'm struggling to find it. I can suggest "L - A Mathemagical Adventure", but...

Educational Maths Game

I need some help for a game that I just remembered today. It's an old DOS game they had on the computers at my school. It was a maths educational game set in a snow filled environment. From what I remember you played this purple monster thing that got around on skis. I vaguely remember that you'd ru...
