Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The FIFA 18 trailer currently has game sites tripping over themselves to point out the Switch version is minus the story mode and runs on its own engine instead of Frostbite. It doesn't seem like a big deal to me but are people still thinking the Switch is going to get directly comparable ports fro...

Re: Retro Gamer 168

I'm just going to weigh in with regards to the readability of the magazine. It's very hard to gauge how serious this issue actually is because no one apart from a few members on the forum complain about it to us. No complaints filter down to us from social media or other parts of the company, so al...

Re: Retro Gamer 168

Half-Life 2 seems too new to be in the mag, perhaps it still holds up well today. Heh, I'm reading back issues from 2006/2007 right now. And they treat N64 as retro then. HL2 came out in 2004, 13 years ago. N64 was "active" from 1996 to 2000ish. I think we old guys need to get new glasses. :mrgreen:

Re: From The Forum issue 169 - 3D Games

I think my first 3D game was Wolfenstein 3D, then DOOM, but I don't think I realized the shift was really inevitable before I saw Mario 64 for the first time. What a game.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Next question. I went to the store on my Switch. There's an option to view new releases. There's an option to view chart releases. That seems to be it. No A-Z browsing of the back catalogue? Only an option to search for a title if you already know it exists? Go to search. Click on the options (can ...

Re: The Rise and Fall of Command & Conquer

First taste I had was RA1 I think, closely followed or predated by the original C&C1. Tiberian Sun was the first I owned myself though, and how I loved it! Played it so much, but never managed to beat the later levels. Loved the destroyable terrain, something many at the time critizised due to the h...

Re: Retro Gamer 167

Loved the last mag, as always. One thing though, after I finished this load, I went back to one of the old back issues (I do this between issues, almost through them all now after a few years of doing this. Digital is superb way of doing this!). And I notice two things, related but one good one bad:...

Re: Future acquire Imagine

The new iPad app has its ups and downs. Slick look, I love that I'm not sent to the front page of the mag I'm reading when reopening the app anymore. But boy is the app much slower than before the update! My iPad 2 is old, but it has worked fine for my only remaining use for it; reading RetroGamer's...

Fun to see my friend Joachim Froholt interviewed and his game reviewed in this issue. :)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Ah! I've got my Switch and have played Zelda for a couple hours, after half an hour with setting up the console and checking all corners of it. Very fun so far.:D Now my wife has got hold of the console and she is trying a Zelda-game for the first time.:D On her own user of course.;)

I saw a scalper trying to sell a new Switch for ~500 pound, but I doubt he succeeded.;)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So has anyone had problems with their pre-orders not being delivered? I've seen a lot of stories of Nintendo UK, GAME, Shopto & Amazon customers being left out in the cold. My best bud pre-ordered his with Nintendo months ago and so far there's been no sight of it. Much to his annoyance, I walked i...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Early reviews are starting to come in...........and they aren't that great. Trying to use it in portable mode with the right stick halfway down does not look comfortable either Early reviews I've seen (and I've seen a few) is mostly positive. There are some kinks, but they're not new. Problems with...
