Re: A Break From Gaming

Interestingly I'm going through the same thing. It's not that I don't like games anymore, and I'm sure I'll come back to it sooner rather than later...but my interests lie elsewhere for now.

Re: Stinkers you bought back in the day

Stealth ATF for the NES, for £40, for my birthday. I played it for 15 minutes, ever. The programmers might as well have come to my party that day and farted on my cake.

Re: Nintendo 3DS Discussion Thread

Yeah, forty notes a game in the age of 99p downloads for iphone games is a bit ridiculous...and yes, I know there's a difference, but will the public see that?

Still haven't got a chance to play one...are there demos in any stores yet?

Re: Don't want no short games, man

I don't have a great deal of time to set aside for gaming and so I'm a fan of the more direct, linear style of game that was more common back in the day. I still get enjoyment out of the more open-ended games, but if I start to feel things are dragging I'm more prone to lose focus and eventually wal...

Haven't had a chance to play it yet but I wasn't impressed with the anime style either. Not my bag!

I'm really, really stoked for Cave Story 3D...first game that's made me really want one.

Re: Multi-game carts

Ooooh that tall cartridge brings back memories...myself and quite a few kids at school had those. Pretty ridiculous-looking, but cheap as chips over in Spain back then. I still have a gba cartridge somewhere with some terrible pokemon-themed nes romhacks on it...poorly-drawn, glitchy sprites limping...

Re: Where is best to sell retro VG mags?

I was thinking about sticking up some stuff on ebay today: namely, the first 8 issues/1994 game guide of Nintendo Magazine System. I also have the NMS Super Street Fighter 2 strategy guide. All in great nick. What's a sensible price to ask for them?

Re: Emulation on DS

Another vote for Lameboy! Doesn't play everything, but perfect for most games I've threw at it. Same goes for Megadrive emulation.

I've about given up on NES/SNES emulation, though. Can anyone recommend a decent slot-1 solution?

Re: Best 2-Player games on SNES / NES to play with Girlfrien

Puzzle Bobble is a firm favourite in this house, but aside from that my wife isn't too much into games.

Oddly, the one glaring exception to this is Final Fight. She said I sold her on it with my dazzling synopsis: "He's a mayor who beats up ladies and eats chickens out of bins!".

Re: Poll - Your thoughts on the 3DS

I'll be hanging back on this one for quite a while, I think. My wife would disembowel me if I even broached the subject of spending two hundred and fifty notes on a portable console and game. Woman don't forget that kind of thing. Aside from that...there's nothing been announced so far that I couldn...

Thanks Craig, sounds great. Hopefully it'll make a showing on XBLA/Wiiware soon, since I'm "i"-less :)

Re: Slim PS1 picture and sound compared to the original

PS2 fat was an awful-looking machine. Slim was a lot better.

As for the original playstation, the psone is one of my favourite consoles of all time in terms of aesthetics.
