To be fair, it's been a while since I frequented in these forums, so I haven't had a chance to change it lol, but hey :) I just wish that forum discussions could be done without resorting to certain levels... maybe I'm asking for too much. I mean a 360 plus a wireless network adaptor still comes to ...

That's what I've missed from this forum... all the love and good old fashioned maturity.. The PS3 has a better reliability record, the 360 has a better online community and the Wii hasn't lost the fact that it's a games console. If you want to be anal, film a porn movie, otherwise play the bloody c...

Kurushi and Kurushi Final

Why don't you do an article on that? It NEVER got enough exposure or the following it deserved. Such a brilliant idea for a puzzle game too.

If you're selling the games for free and it's not doing anyone any harm, then what was the point in someone setting this thread up in the first place? To understand why people seem so reluctant to download and try free or nominal cost games for 8-bits. it's a mixture of time restrictions and the ea...

I fear that our opinions may forever be misaligned, TMR. :) If you're selling the games for free and it's not doing anyone any harm, then what was the point in someone setting this thread up in the first place? I can think of worse things clogging up cyberspace that won't give you the fun and enjoym...

I think the end result is that it all boils down to the individual and whether their passion for the machine is still strong enough...

It's a bit like vegetarians and vegans, both imply the same methods, but with varying degrees of loyalty and devotion to the cause.

I'm looking at this thread and thinking to myself... my god, some people must really miss the Speccy v C64 arguments that they have to do it again some 15 to 20 years later... Who is meeting who behind the bike sheds at 3.30 for a beating? All the consoles have their pros and cons and everyone makes...

I'm not going to quote any more, but my opinion is similar to Paranoid Marvin. So many games are now freely available.... are you really going to spend time and trouble downloading these new games for the older consoles...? I loved and still do love the Commodores to bits, but that still doesn't mea...

But that's the general gaming audience, it doesn't entirely apply to most of the people on this message board because the majority of readers are quite happy to worry about content over style and i'm sure there aren't many around who are scared of an emulator over a Windows box. why should people b...

Well that's why you buy it and I don't..... I just have to accept that it won't change the way it looks anyway, mainly because it has it's steady mainstram of readers and won't want to rock the boat as it's bad for business... standard market sense speaks there, but answer me this.... when Zzap and ...

It's good to see that people are willing to put the time in to make games for the old formats as they once were, much like some DJ's still using vinyl, but in a day were emulators are more popular than ever mixed with a throwaway society, it's just too much work for little enough reward IMO. Most o...

Gaming has changed from back then, obviously and I also think because of that you can't really have people relate to these new games for older formats. So the obvious question to ask here is "why not" - if they can relate to new games or remakes on current gen why not new games on previous gen? i d...

I was a huge fan of it pre Imagine and once it changed over I just got so damned bored of it I just have never picked up a copy since and that must be bordering on over a few years at least. I know I'm in the minority and I'm also sure I'll get the fanboys on my back for this, but the main draw of R...
