Re: Greatest Mega Drive games of all time

And within SECONDS of posting my list I forgot about the existence of Dynamite Heddy and Rocket Knight Adventures. Revised list: 10 - Sonic 2 9 - Micro Machines 2 8 - Sonic 3 & Knuckles 7 - Streets Of Rage 2 6 - Dynamite Headdy 5 - Rocket Knight Adventures 4 - Psycho Pinball 3 - Dr. Robotnik's Mean ...

Re: Dragon Commander

You'd prefer it if it were Wing Commander set in a fantasy world - dragon combat with pubs?

Dragon Commander

This looks too good to be true. A game of three halves (...) It's mainly like the Shogun games, in which you plan a campaign using a Risk style board, but the actual battles (EPIC FANTASY STEAMPUNK WITH BALLOONS, TANKS, DRAGONS AND MAGIC) take place in real time. And, any time you want, you can ride...

Re: wwwtxt

It's a lot of fun following them on Twitter because, to the best of their abilities, they try and make these early nineties dispatches relevant. For example:

"I think musicians in 2013 will be influenced by musicians from 2003."

Oh yes.

Brilliant archive of images and texts from pre web 1.0!

Even if you didn't adopt the internet before 1995, this is an almost overwhelmingly nostalgic place to visit - particularly if you grew up in the nineties.

Re: The Cave - Ron Gilbert & Tim Schafer's new game

And oh, Mr. Chiptune (or Ms. Chiptune?) I just read your review, and I didn't think it was possible to like graphic adventure games and not like Monkey Island. I don't hate you. No. If anything, I should thank you. My mind and my horizons have been expanded a little tonight.

Re: The Cave - Ron Gilbert & Tim Schafer's new game

I've read nothing but good reviews of this! The golden age Lucas Arts pantheon is, I think, as close as I'll ever get to idolising the people behind video games. The Cave should, for me, be as exciting as a new Boards of Canada album. OK, maybe not quite as exciting. But the point is, I doubt I'll g...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

Yeah I went for the ring too, what a waste of time it is useless! Didn't affect me too much though. Blightown was a pain but better than the crytal caves invisible path bit. I've heard there's a way to unleash the power if the ring and make it perform like it promised. BUT ISN'T IT AMAZING how, in ...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

That's a effed up way to get to the valley, plus from that side of it you have to fight the dragons :lol: . You can get there from the beginning bonfire, take the lift located underneath it. You must be a glutton for punishment as that way's too much like hard work! You might as well go through the...

Oh by the way, For those who think that the difficulty of Dark Souls isn't a status symbol for some, bloody hell! Have you read the comments of the originally linked article? Hilarious! I finally made it to Blighttown today. I got in via The Valley of Drakes, accessed having defeated that headless s...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

I saw The Matrix again last night, and I realised that learning how to play Dark Souls is an experience similar to that Neo goes through as he learns that he can take on agents. If it wasn't imperative that I fight, I've been running away from anything bigger than a hollow soldier. But now that I've...

Re: Dark Souls 2!

Most fans will shout you down if you dare suggest that Dark Souls requires an easy mode. The fear is that people will complete it on easy and complain that the game's not as hard as people make it out to be. Apparently devoted Dark Soul players don't want to lose their status as hard-boiled veteran ...

Re: "THAT" bit

Eek, I had such a moment playing Dark Souls last night. Of course, every time you play Dark Souls you encounter "THAT" bit. But last night really took the biscuit. I was in the Valley of Drakes. I had spent about forty minutes attempting to slay two lightning dragons. Having built up 10,000 souls an...

Dark Souls 2!

How could Dark Souls 2 possibly be any better than the first one?

Here's how!

Re: The Maniac Bodybuilder of Amazon

Oh my word, I just had a look at Dracula's profile. Because his namesake's an enduring masterpiece of Victorian fiction, he'll likely never find this page, even if he does periodically Google himself. So we can say whatever we like about him! Dracula must be the product of a misguided bit of guerril...
