Re: Your Favourite "Star Wars" game

You still cannot beat the original 1983 Atari Star Wars arcade, especially the cabinet version 8)

Re: This is the worst game I've ever played

These were two of the games that really broke the Plus 4 for me, it was becoming too much of a lottery at the time to go into a shop and pick up something that could really be terrible, I used to start loading a game up with trepidation rather than expectation, nowadays we have the internet to help...

Re: This is the worst game I've ever played

Green Beret on the C16, nothing else has ever come close to how terrible this is, shocking graphics, just one noise for a sound effect, ugly blocks round all the characters, the enemies have guns, when you only have a knife, there is nothing right about this game, nothing at all. http://plus4world....

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

Top Gear. You control either Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond or "that other lady" (James May). You are on the set and get points for falling over and catching on fire. :lol: They could have "star in a recently priced car" challenges. Racing against the Stig, drag race with a presenter of your choo...

Re: New retro gamer website feedback

It is difficult to spot. I eventually found the login button. If you click on a game review, you will find it directly underneath the white Comments Box to the right. Why is this reminding me so much of Windows 8 now? Click on that and a dropdown box will appear giving you numerous new ways to regis...

Re: New retro gamer website feedback

WOW! Sorry, but what a way to kill a website. Except for the forum (fortunately), you've actually inexplicably erased all the main-site registered members you've built up over the years. That's just suicide. I see a login button, but when I click on retrogamer for my old account, just my homepage ap...

Re: Commodore 16

There was a playable preview of Adventures In Time 2 released last week if anyone missed it. Yeah that's going to be a great game, hopefully with little puzzle elements thrown in once completed. The immense Tom Thumb is going to be extremely difficult to beat though and that games works on an unexp...

Re: Tropes and sexism in gaming.

Well Space_turnip... At the end of the day even with all the advertising, education and arm-twisting in the world, it just wouldn't sell big to the mass mainstream. Could you really imagine if Sony Playstation brought out 2 protagonists to rival Mario and Luigi and made them gay lovers? Tell me, how...

Re: Tropes and sexism in gaming.

Well a gay game will only appeal to gay people, it would only cover a niche market and therefore wouldn't be mainstream. There would also likely be an age-restriction as it deals with a more adult theme. But if we scrap human characters out of games altogether and have cute little bunny rabbits and ...

Ahaha, I forgot your review. You've pretty much nailed it there.

Re: Worst game in the world, Rpund 2, Heat B

Oh god, Green Beret on the C16. I remember buying this on the Konami Coin-Op Hits collection. It was awful along with most of the compilation itself (only Ping Pong was adequate enough). I so happened to have reviewed it here a while back. Green Beret - C16 retrogamer review But if you think that's ...
