Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I have rejoined the elite and bought myself a pc. It's a £200 ex-fleet/business i7 gen 4 Dell. I've also got a 4gb GTX970 and uprated power supply to bung into it. It will need a more memory and storage eventually but it should comfortably out-perform an XBone and was cheap enough for me to tinker w...

Currently playing Beneath a Steel Sky on ScummVM. It's one of those graphic adventures I had in my backlog for years but never got around to finish.
That's been in my GoG collection for years and I've never even fired it up.

Re: Biggest waste of gaming money?

Either my half arsed efforts into getting import PS2 games or the various Xbox 360s I bought then sold then bought again.
In either case I didn't spend an awful lot so no big deal.

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

What was the issue with Insect Armageddon? I liked the original 360 game but never tried the sequels.
I also really liked Tiberium Sun but didn't get on with any other C&C. I guess that would make sense of you're a fan of the series.

Re: Favourite Resident Evil?

I think I would have to say Resi 2 was my favourite, just about squeezing Remake. I played it the most at the time, even did the Hank(?) scenario (but not the Tofu guy), though don't feel any need to go back. Occasionally I think of getting R2 Remake or replaying Resi 4 but I just play Dead Space in...

Re: What's Your Favorite Driving/Racing Game Ever?

Hard to choose a favourite. Maybe SNES F-Zero, original Gran Turismo, original Wipeout, first Forza, arcade Daytona or PGR2?

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

I've started to build a modest NTSC collection, managed to recently get Smash Bros Melee for a sensible price. What I'm really after now is Prince Of Persia Sands of Time, but it seems to be the only NTSC POP game nobody in the UK is selling/trading. Fav games were F-ZERO GX , PN03, viewtiful joe, ...

Re: What's Your Favorite Driving/Racing Game Ever?

Yeah GC Burnout played extremely well, though it was weak in sound and music. I actually bought it based on a very positive review in Edge. More recently, I'm enjoying non-racing driving games like Mudrunner and Farm Sim 19. Very relaxing games. I fancy Euro Truck Sim but haven't made a decision on ...

Yep I thought Shadows of the Empire wasn't bad - have to remember it was a launch title as well for the N64 so probably the go-to game if you wanted something beyond Mario 64.
Yeah for a long time I brother (who owned the 64) had only Shadows and PES.

I've never played Resi 3 yet, it's in my pile of shame. I somehow went 1, 2, 4.
Yeah me too. I had Zero on GC and never even fired it up.
I actually went 2 (PS1), ReMake (GC) then 4 (Xbox) and haven't played any since.

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

APB on the CPC (lol). Played the arcade machine while on holiday, got home having found a copy for the Amstrad and it didn't even load. More recently, Doom 3, Thief 3 and Homeworld 2 all were released about the same time. I loved the games that had come before but hated all 3 of these. Prett much ki...

Currently replaying System Shock 2 in honor of it celebrating it's 20 year anniversary. Fantastic game.
I remember my brother coming home with a copy of that when it was new....
