Re: How much last gen stuff is too much?

I don't care. If there is a good story to tell, take as much pages as you need. Of course each issue should be balanced but I wouldn't limit myself by such a rule. I guess chances are higher to get in touch with important key figures of more recent games, so why not writing some making ofs of PS2/Dr...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 117 - Feedback Thread

Balance was right for me, so your statement is already proofed wrong^^ Thanks for this nice issue! There have been a lot of articles I enjoyed in it. The Thief article was too short though...but then again, 10 pages would have been too (for me). I know you have to make compromises. But personally I ...

Re: The Wii Collecting Thread!

Ok, thank you - that's a shame. Most of my codes will be expired. :( So, it is not more interesting for collectors if an unused code card is present so it is closer to "mint condition"? I'm a private seller and never have sold anything on ebay before, so people will probably not buy from me easily. ...

Re: The Wii Collecting Thread!

Hello everyone! I want to sell some of my Wii and Gamecube games and I wanted to ask, if in your experience there is any (small) price differences between games with or without Nintendo star catalogue points code cards? I haven't used any of my codes yet but I'm thinking about using them before sell...

Re: this generations creative peaks

The Portal series for me.

A very creative concept. A puzzle-first person-"shooter"-platformer with an unique setting, hilarious voice acting and nice story with some twists.
Portal 2 added a lot to the franchise through coop-missions and the level editor.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 116 - LucasArts special

Nice Issue! The Lucasarts Feature is huge, very cool. But I'm so looking forward to the next issue. I'm interested in the Capcom and Space Invaders story, I love the Master System, I love Lost Vikings and I absolutely worship Thief! Greatest game of all time imho. Sounds like lots of awesome content...

Re: "wii u dead already"

People made games like Gears of War, Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect for the HD consoles. They made games that cost millions, had thousands of man hours poured into them, great artistry, spectacular production values, huge multi-million dollar marketing campaigns. No major publisher other than Nin...

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

I agree! Would be a great way for publisher to re-release a lot of their games that never reached europe or that are very expensive now.

But Nintendo's Online/VC strategy is really hard to understand in general...

Re: Early Mario or Early Sonic

Yes, you have to consider the time of release of the first Mario (1985) to Sonic (1991). 6 years is a long time and in Mario 2 USA and Mario 3 (1988) you already were able to walk left (apart from a few auto-scrolling levels). And they had tons of hidden passages, doors, even whole levels. I think e...

Re: Early Mario or Early Sonic

There are levels in Sonic games where it feels like you only have to push right without looking to complete the stage... I can understand when people say that about the GBA and DS games, but can't think of a single level in the Mega Drive or Master System games where that can be done. Of course I w...

Re: Early Mario or Early Sonic

I didn't have a NES back in the day so I played Sonic first. On Master System and Mega Drive. And I loved it back then. But I think the early Marios are way better games gameplay-wise. There are levels in Sonic games where it feels like you only have to push right without looking to complete the sta...

Re: "wii u dead already"

I still plan to buy one (maybe this christmas) and hopefully there a lot of other gamers still on the fence. Every Nintendo console had a nice library of high quality exclusives and I expect the same on Wii U. So why writing it off after 6 months? Nintendo made some mistakes with the launch and they...
