Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

now playing final fight on my xbone. sweet.

course I could always play it on the 360, but it gives me a reason to stick the xbone on now rather than watching the kids play Disney infinity or the odd bluray

Re: Nintendo releasing a new NES !

just pre-ordered mine with a second controller. never had a NES or any interest in it even back in the day, curiosity got the better of me. also - looks collectable as f**k so it was a bit of a punt if they become scarce and if I don't like it I could probably shift it on quick, but also lots of bir...

Re: From The Forum issue 157 - Reasons To Love The N64

I would have agreed with you, but a quick Google gives a fairly substantial list to prove he's right, at least with volume: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Nintendo_64_racing_games Which of these are actually good though? Hence my request for more info. all of these are awesome or verge on b...

Re: UK Nes original owners

I remember the demo stations in boots and dixons displaying the likes of castlevania, tiger heli, salamander (life force) and contra - even back then when it was all new and shiny i thought it was cack and was never that tempted to have another go. it didn't help that...

Re: Nintendo Gamecube will be 15 years old in September

Re: Retro Gaming. How far Back is your cut off point.

early 80's for arcade games, late 80's for consoles. not interested in games on 8/16 bit computers at all.
