Let's Get Retro (reviews and comparisons of arcade ports)

I'd a quick post about this last year , but seeing as the channels changed name and focus (and has a few more videos)I thought I'd give it a mention again. Just in case this is anyones cup of tea, my channel "Let's get Retro" is doing random game reviews/plays , and also big (WAY too bloody big) loo...

I looked at the box art, immediately thought WoW clone. I may give it a go.

Thanks chaps!
It ended up being a sort of offline WOW subsitute for me.
There is an MMO set in the same universe due out in the next yeat , which really does look to be a bit of a wow clone.

Re: From The Forum issue 112 Mega Drive

Mercs , even though it was single player ,(compared to the arcade cabs three player fun) I still loved it , Plus! it included an RPG-lite extra game that was totally massive and completely unique.Oddly enough , despite it getting high scores at the time ,one of the Meg' magazines took a dislike to ...

Re: Skyrim...has it got boring?

Decent mods? Right! Even avoiding the 'Secksy Laaaaydies ' graphics mods and Anime makeovers , which sadly make up a sizeable chunk of what "tha kidz" mod these days, theres still LOADS : A sampling would be SkyUI (which gives it a proper interface for it as a PC game), the official High res texture...

Re: Skyrim...has it got boring?

Not boring for me Oddly enough I found myself going back for a few more hours last night.Mind you I'm playing as a pimped out stealthhy archer on a game so modded it bears only passing resemblance to the version on consoles.Playing it as a party as well is fun (3 companions, one a mage one a barbari...

Re: Rally Speedway article in 111

No conspiracy - said article is a retrorevival (a nostalgic look back at a memorable game), the C64 version is the one I played so it's the version I wrote about. hey dont worry I didnt reckon it was anything sinister! (and I definitely dont think its any "lets ignore one format over another"). The...

Rally Speedway article in 111

Hey! been flicking through 111 and its great so far (any kind of Sega love is great!). Theres a decent article on rally speedway. , but one thing bugged me, its listed as a C64 game , but its actually an Atari 8 bit game that was ported to c64. It was published by Adventure International in the US ,...

Re: Would you get rid of your RG collection?

Odd timing on seeing this thread , I'd close to the 100 (from 2 onwards), but basically the powers that be have politely hinted that I need to sell off any retro stuff that's not actively being used , so I'm selling them at the moment. I'm based in Ireland , so it's kind of a limited market , but if...

Re: Street fighter X Tekken and DLC bitching

Hmm I've been half interested in this one , I mean I liked SFII back in the old days , and SF IV was fun , the street fighter franchise just doesn't do it for me. There definitely seems to be a big difference between Namco and Capcom's philosophies on what a game disk should include.Namco aren't as ...

Re: From the forum issue 96

ZZap64 had a decent enough unreleased racing game from Denton Designs called StarAce one month .Well I thought it was decent at the time , but a recent replay showed that it looked great , sounded great , but was as slow as an asthmatic ant stuck in treacle!.
