Re: Super NES vs Mega Drive

Its the Mega Drive for me by default as its not only better than the SNES, its better than any other electronic device ever invented. Plus it has the better version of Street Fighter II :o Hahahahahahahahahahaha. :mrgreen: Personally, I thought that Street Fighter 2 Turbo : Hyper Fighting was the u...

Re: More woe for nintendo

Taken from The Washington Post "Sony ascendent. Sony may not be in a great place as an overall company, but it is killing it in the gaming world right now. Not only has the PlayStation 4 consistently beat out the Xbox One in worldwide sales, but the firm has also recently passed Nintendo as the most...

Re: Best 80's action film

Yes it was. Funnily enough, Arnie was considered for both the main roles in Die Hard and Robocop - according to the trivia on IMDB I'd be surprised if there were many big budget action movies where he wasn't considered in that period. Let's face it; he was box office dynamite until Last Action Hero...

Re: Watch Dogs promotion goes horribly wrong. Bomb squad cal

Horribly wrong my arse - this is a tonne of free PR. Of course it worked on the PR front - but am sure the people that had to be evacuated don't see it that way. Regardless of all the columns inches it created, it was still a very dubious and immature thing to do. Funny they didn't have the bottle ...

Re: Home-Computers or Consoles?

Consoles for me every time. PC owners must all drive BMWs. Looking down their noses at console owners with this kind of faux superiority and smug countenance. Funny, you've just demonstrated exactly the same attitude that you're trying to put down. People like you make me laugh. Why have a preferen...

Re: Xbone without Kinect!

They came in from the lofty heights of the 360s success (which, as I understand it, was largely the most successful console in it's generation for most of its life) thinking they could pretty much do anything they wanted and people would lap it up. They were wrong. They have reversed unpopular deci...

Re: Xbone without Kinect!

How eva you look at it, must be kinda embarrasing for Microsoft having too back track. They had a vision in which they thought they could dictate certain policies, and lo and behold, once the sales figures started coming in they realised - k, maybe we can't do that after all. My 360 is a keeper, esp...
