Re: What Blu rays have you bought this week?

Over the last 2 years I have been buying all my Favorite movies on Blu Ray. I buy tv series on standard DVDs as it is cheaper and I'm not overly fussy about the picture quality when it comes to the Tv stuff. I am mad about Breaking Bad at the moment. I had heard all the hype about it and I finally g...

Re: The Xbox/PS2 coverage discussion thread

In my opinion the PS2, Original Xbox and GameCube now qualify as retro and definitely should be featured in Retro Gamer. I have been reading the magazine since issue 19 and have subscribed since Issue 23. As you can Imagine I have seen loads of Games, Comps, Consoles etc featured and many ideas trie...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I am currently playing Devil May Cry Hd Collection, Super Mario Galaxy and Kid Icarus on the 3ds. I am halfway through the 3rd game of the Dmc series. Absolutely loving theses games. I know a lot of gamers prefer the 3rd but I still think Dmc 1 is still the best, the Hd making it look even better. S...

Re: The Return Of Let's All Play

I would love to see a vertical or horizontal shmup. I have a few suggestions from a few Retro Consoles. Raiden Project (select Raiden 1 or 2) on PSOne, UN Squadron on the Snes, Fireshark on the Sega Megadrive, Super Star Soldier on the TurboGrafx 16, Project X on the Amiga CD32, Donpachi on the Sega...

Re: New Vs Old Silent Hill 2 HD Vs Silent Hill 2

Gotta go with the Hd version of Silent Hill 2. It looks crisp, clean and slick. I know a lot of fans say that some of the murkiness has been taken away but I gotta say I prefer the hd. X

Re: Hot Topic - Best Ocean Film Licence

I was a big Sly Stallone fan in the 80's and I remember going into my local games shop and seeing Cobra the game by Ocean. I had heard nothing about it and on this rare occasion took a blind chance on it. I was pleasantly surprised at how good Ocean had made this movie licence into a run n' gun. Lov...

Re: From the forum - Retro Gamer turns 100

I can remember walking into a local garage and looking at the magazines. What a buzz of excitement when I saw the words 'Retro Gamer'. Finally there was a magazine that not only wrote about classic games and consoles but wrote about it passionately and really cared about the past history of our gami...

Re: Hot Topic - Best GTA Game

It's gotta be Vice City. Not only did it have great gameplay but the 80's music and setting was superb. Rockstar captured the atmosphere and feel of the 80's. Who can resist cruising as the sun starts to go down with the sound of A Flock Of Seagulls playing on the car stereo. Solid game!

Re: Hot Topic - Best GBA

The Gameboy SP everytime. It was a big leap in design from the original sp. The flip lid and the screen made this the number one option to go for. The choice of designs, tribal etc, gave it a great look and it had a top selection of colors. This definitly gets my vote x

Re: From the Forum Issue 90

I changed from 8-bit to 16-bit when I saw Sonic the Hedgehog in full flow! Seeing this little blue wonder effortlessly sprinting and jumping across the screen at a rate I had never seen before made me go out and buy a Sega Megadrive right away. As much as I adored (and still do) my Spectrum plus I r...

Re: Issue 89 Came today.. Retro Gamer Goes One Step Too Far

I don't Mind the 3ds or iPhone/pad etc being featured in the magazine. These systems do feature quite a bit of retro games or remakes on them. The 3ds has a new Pilotwings, a new Kid Icarus, a lovely looking Ocarina of Time and many more. The iPod/ipad has loads of retro games or retro influenced ga...

Games like Ninja Cop, Astro Boy, Zelda minish cap etc. I only got into the gba games when I got a Ds Lite. As it is backwards compatable with gba games I thought that I would...

Re: From the forum - Issue 85

I am gonna complete Donkey Kong Country. I have been loving the new Donkey Kong Country Returns game on the Wii. Now I have completed this I think it is about time that I finally put the original to rest.
