Re: From The Forum: 196

I don't want a PC Engine mini, I want a PC Engine Maxi! With Outrun! I cried buckets of tears in my youth knowing I had to settle for a dreadfully inferior 8-bit port whilst all those PCE kids were laughing merrily at my expense. I still need therapy to this day.

Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

Yep, you now get the keyring too! I did sign up, and got an earlybird special, which astounded me. Someone must have cancelled and I signed up at the exact right time as there was one sitting there. For good measure I decided to go and get the 2019 Crash annual, seeing I hadn't opted to buy the sec...

Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

^^ You were the one who got me on their last Kickstarter with praise about Fusion products and I must concur, I completely agree, great products and everything was on time with the last campaign, so I had to go again this time 'round. :) So thanks for the heads up, your advice was spot on. ;)

Re: Iain Lee

that's brilliant, I loved his column, always got a hearty chuckle to start off the mag which I do think is missed, I thought it made a big difference as it was the perfect start.

Re: New highly impressive CPC game

Well that looks amazing.. looks to me like it was based off Lotus on Amiga, or a combination of Lotus and Outrun and it looks very promising indeed.

Amazing what they're accomplishing with the classic machines, proves old dogs can indeed be taught new tricks :)

Re: From the forum: 192

don't tell me i'm getting confused in my old age.. I thought it was Ocean but indeed it may certainly have been Imagine.. in that case Combat School on the '64 was arguably more fun than its arcade counterpart and happily consumed a small pile of joysticks in pursuit of final conquer-ance - which sa...

Re: From the forum: 192

Ocean releases always got me excited because you equated them with quality, so I knew when I doled out my hard earned newspaper round cash it wouldn't be wasted. Salamander on the '64 was my favourite, a blitzing shoot 'em up with a cracking tune that bested the arcade in my opinion, absolutely felt...

Re: Top 10 PS2 games - vote now!

10 - Resident Evil 4 (For me the best game of all time so it demands top place) 9 - High Heat Baseball 2004 (just gets everything right and no other baseball game feels quite like it) 8 - Mafia (for its time an incredible achievement, great game and feels just like an interactive, high-class movie) ...

Re: Dragon''s Lair home conversions

The DS version is pretty good. agree! I just played it yesterday actually, first time I think Ive ever played a version of Dragon's Lair all the way through, even though Ive had lots of different versions of it. I think the DS is perhaps the most 'playable' of any of the versions ive played. Having...

Suppose it's sad but it's also inevitable.

EDGE needs to go if it hasn't already. Pretentious, up itself industry talk that directly counters the idea of videogames being for entertainment and fun.
Haha, you put it very well! It takes itself waaaaaay too seriously.

Re: From the forum: 188

Medal Of Honor, such gripping atmosphere, there was nothing quite like it at the time.

Dead even I say with Resi Evil 2 but someone stole that already ^^ :D
