Re: What's your favourite Nintendo arcade game?

Sadly never got chance to play earlier games in any arcades - My vote has to go on Mario Kart GP. Many holidays of late I have a match or 5 against my son. Prefer that game to most later home versions.

Only thing I object to is paying per race. A horrible trend that never went away.

Re: Yet Another Mega Drive Collection

This would actually be a decent buy for me since the last time I bought a Mega Drive compilation was the PS2/PSP versions so I missed out on all the extra games added into the PS3/360 edition. On the other hand, I can't help but agree that the same stuff is just being dragged out over and over. I k...

Re: Most wanted unreleased games?

https://i.imgur.com/7Ujf3Gc.jpg That really is the first I've seen of it. To be quite hoonest , a lot of that looks like it is ripped straight from the original. Not denying it looks great , but those audience members and cut scene bits seem familiar. Still , thank you for introducing me to a game ...

Re: 'random niceness' thread

I'll take that then if you don't mind. I'll have a good dig around and find something , I've probably got a couple of bits to dig out.

I still think its a great game and it will be nice to play it through HD rather than poor emulation.

Re: 'random niceness' thread

I'd love to take it - sadly All i can offer to replace is a platinum copy of Toca for the PS1 and that seems unfairly uneven.

Re: Change one thing?

Make more and better original games available for the Sega Megacd. I remember seeing the initial wave of Mega CD games at Gamesmaster live and even then thinking how crappy most of them looked. I get the limitations etc but most were just enhanced versions or substandard show games. A few standouts...

Titan A.E. - really though this could have made for a good tie in action game.

Re: Yet Another Mega Drive Collection

By now we should really be looking at legacy style collections - with as much as possible from the back catalogue. Perhaps not only including MD Streets of Rage but the MS versions too , organised in a library style so you can pick all franchise associated games in order. Having the choice to pick t...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Kuruputo for the DS for 99p - never heard of it before and for 99p it had to be worth a punt.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

I see some admirable efforts to revive and keep it going. Sadly the decimation that ran rife has taken the numbers right down. In some cases for the better but there is no room for elitism and bullying and cannot be seen to be tolerated. There are some people that are conspicuously absent from here ...

Re: The return of mascot games

I'd like to see something done with Toejam and Earl - though preferably not the ones that appeared on the Xbox in that cringeworthy terribly stereotype filled reasonably ok game.

Re: Change one thing?

Oddly , i wouldnt change a thing on the speccy - losing colour clash may improve a few things but some amazing things were still done on the spectrum. I could agree on the MD though. Just a bit more colour on screen could have edged it for me though again , i think it was good to have the difference...

Re: Most wanted unreleased games?

Unreleased games have always been something that I've been incredibly interested in. Over the years there have been loads of much anticipated titles that have fallen by the wayside for various reasons but what are the ones you really wanted that never made it? One that has always bothered me is Pit...

Re: The PSP collecting thread

Any reason why my CFW PSP suddenly won't load Roms from the Snesx9 TYL emulator? Never had any problems before - now I get to the menu and pick a game but then freezes and resets the machine. Also, my megadrive emulator - DGEN - won't let me soft reset. If I do it goes back to the PSP menu. Strange...

Re: KFC

My local KFC refurbished recently , yet kept the same stupid layout which has no room for queuing , no space to open the door and no space left now for all the delivery riders. I don't bother going in unless they've got stuff like the part time southern bites or seasoned fries. Mcdonalds is only goo...
