Classic Games You Hated.

People always talk about the ‘retro’ games they loved. It’s obvious as to why, but to level that playing field a bit, lets talk about the mundane. Games that weren’t creative, that didn’t push technical limitations, and ultimately was a waste of your pocket money. So… are there any games...

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike with out a doubt!

It redefined the Street Fighter series in every area. Beautiful animation, a new cast of characters, and fixing many of the gameplay problems from past series whilst adding new depth.

Maybe the only BBC games review I’ve ever agreed with. But at the same time Sega have ported their classics so many times that a reiteration was quite nice.

Re:

This ladies and gentlemen is Q, the greatest beat em up character in all history(c)!! Why do i like him so much? Partly it's because he resembles Rorschach from the great 'Watchmen' and i like to believe because capcom didn't furnish our dear Q with ANY backstory what-so-ever i can project whoever ...

Re:

Jakeway: too many people are now afraid that if they say they know where an old machine is, the collectors will descend like vultures and buy it for their collections... Hmmm... That’s odd, because just a month after I updated my post with photos Outrun2 SP was missing, I was told that its been s...

I recently profiled my local arcade (see sig) for posterity. I was hoping this could have become a data base but people seem to refuse to help.

Nice Story The Universal… but bloody long. Ash, Hello, I am also under 30 too, under 25 even! I bet my older brother enjoyed Star Wars far more then I did, and I bet my Dad enjoyed Rebel Without A Cause far more than I did. It was part of their growing up… their generation. Anyway, Games are not...

Well seems I am younger than most of you guys. The NES was MY first console and the Xmas I ripped open the box was one of my happiest. As was the birthday a few years later when I got Super Mario Brothers 3 (remember the TV advert?) I still have the NES Box, rips and all, its part of my life history...

What do you guys think of Xbox Live Arcade on the 360?

I’ve only had a few short goes, but I think it’s a really great idea. I don’t know how much they will do with it but it has potential.

Cant find this anywhere in the UK… I know its called Ninja 5 0 in the US but I don’t like importing GBA games as the card boxes always get hammered, and I don’t trust Ebay for GBA games, way to many copies on there.

Nice views guys… Although I hate the thought of the anything after the PS1 being call Retro, I don’t mind these consoles being used in retro magazines. Most other magazines have drop support for these consoles, and its nice to still read about them. I hope your going to cover that NEW (2006) Dre...

Nice one, if you have XBL feel free to 'jump in' I love Q, but I am not very good with him. So I go for Dudley. He is just liquid cool. I’d go as far as to say the coolest character in a beat em up. http://www.capcom-europe.com/Resources/Images/1f516f03-6daa-47ed-91b5-bf7c6946dd47.jpg Think Chris ...
