Re: Let's all do our Top Tens!

Doom (PSone) - The granddaddy of FPS's with a terrific oppressive atmosphere, foreboding soundtrack & shocks galore. Christmas 1995 was an unholy union of cheese straws, alcohol & double barrelled shot-guns in demons faces. Accept no substitutes. Totally agree that the PS1 version was aces - mostly...

Re: Xbox (original) faulty joypad port - any ideas?

Another option I suppose if you fail to get the bits you need, you could just soft mod your Crystal xbox!

Is it possible to run Gameboy games on the PSP? Like GB color, GB Advance?

Re: Amiga PSU Buzzin noise

Yup I'm afraid its a problem that I had with mine.... and then it died :(.

I was only about 13 back then so had no idea how to repair it even though its more than likely just a connection problem inside the PSU.

Sorry I can't help :(

Re: xbox (original, not 360) VGA cable / convertor box

If all else fails then you might have to do what I do with my xbox's.

Run 'em direct through your hd lcd tv with component cables. It look amazing :)

Re: Let's all do our Top Tens!

Wow, this was hard. Can't believe I have no Metal Slug, Mega Man, Castlevania, Monkey Island or Baldur's Gate in there... An NO racing game? Bah, humbug :D I guess I need to do a Top 100... One of the first console games I ever owned and the best 2D Mario game ever. Incredible variety along with a ...

Re: Batman the movie *1989 game*

Quite simply one of the best amiga platform games of all time imo.

The graphics and music still hold up well today.

Re: Upscaler Gives Wii HD Output

I don't mean to seem confused but on a serious note I have never had a problem with my Wii running through my HD Tv. Am I missing something cos I have a really excellent display through the Wii with my component cables hooked up, am I just a really lucky one or not? My TV is a 3 year old Phillips 72...

Re: GTA IV or Fallout 3? Discuss.

Fallout 3, easily. GTA IV has had all the fun sucked out of it trying to be 'dark', it's nowhere near as good as the likes of Vice City. Fallout 3 is just brilliant, especially if you liked Oblivion, since it's almost a re-skin of it. If you're looking for a good sandbox game afterwards instead of ...

Re: Mega-lot on eBay - wow!

Hmmm love the collection... gotta say though that the WIFE would indeed be leaving via divorce if I was ever asked to get rid of my collection lol.

Part of the deal is me and my collection I'm afraid hahaha :D
