Re: 747 crashes in Afghan

if that was a high angle of attack on take off and shifting load then it was never going to fly. terrifying how quick it flips over on one wing as all energy is lost. Incredible to see a massive aircraft like that falling like a leaf. horrific. :(

Re: From Issue 115 - Best Shooter

For me the Gradius series is the best, although i am really liking Dodonpachi Resurrection. something very satisfying to unleash a massive laser on an enemy which absorbs it for a few seconds before exploding. Now THAT is a hard enemy :-)

Re: From the forum issue 116 Best LucasArts game

Fate of Atlantis was utterly fabulous and the Secret Weapons games were great but my favourite of them all is X-Wing:Alliance.

You get to take part in the space battle over Endor, flying the Falcon no less! How can you top that?
