My Bad

Cracking game, Hilight for me has to be that pass to toomb, couldnt see him making it, then he does. Despite the ensuing turnover then West's drop/fumble I think thats when the Giants realised their offence were good enough.

Just awesome

Hmm Dungeons and Dragons and its sequels are a firm favourite of a certain retro Ed. Nice Thread. Where to start Chakan Megadrive, ridiculously difficult, great character and story Big Mac: The Mad Maintenance Man C64, the most awesome forgotten platformer, better than that Miner and so few have hea...

Do you think that the mag might seem less interesting because Retro Gaming isnt new anymore and is a legitimate part of the video game world. Now scarcety is lower the "wow factor" has been lost.

Difficult of RG to adjust to this I think.

I voted for Pheonix, it just felt more solid to me. Galaxians had incredible attack waves, but the experience of Pheonix was preferable to me. Incidently Palieds and Aliens puts them both in the shade ;) may be worth opening the poll up, there were many deriatives of the theme that were largely bril...

Glad you liked it, It was mainly a space issue to be honest, the GBA has some awesome conversions of Doom too, there was lots that didnt make the final cut, like the top ten wads etc. With the Snes version there was a marked difference between Pal and Ntsc versions which opens up another sub set.

So the machines in question are a quarter of a century old and were still in use, awesome.

I wonder what the expected lifespan of the machines were.

Bouncing Bunnies, and despite screwing my face up at first, turns out to be another awesome game, Space Invaders meets Puyo Puyo.
