Re: Best beat em up series

It has GOT to be SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millenium on Neo Geo Pocket. Nothing has come close to just how much fun that game is & I don't think anything will...

Re: what is your rarest retro item/or most favourite retro i

The first thing that came to mind were my 2 Super Famicom prototype cartridges. I have 3x3 Eyes (can't remember which one) & Super Gossun Oyoyo protos. I also have a boxed Commodore 16 with boxed tape deck & other accessories in a blue Commodore bag. I've never seen one of these Commodore bags anywh...

Re: Best 2-Player games on SNES / NES to play with Girlfrien

If you're able to play Super Bomberman 5, that is mad fun. Mine prefers Bomberman 4 & isn't much of a fan of the new style graphics in 5. I prefer the 1 player aspect of 5 though. It's pretty good. We don't ever seem to FINISH games. We're partway through Super Bomberman 4, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Sec...

Re: Best 2 player games on the SNES?

I'm surprised there's been no mention of Kirby's Dreamland 3. My girlfriend & I are playing through that at the moment & it has a decent 2 player mode

Re: Kinetic and Move…Fail?

One of the biggest problems, in Australia at least, is that the games are a good $20-$30 more than normal. I was speaking to a store owner who has no desire to stock them but has to as it's what customers expect.

Re: From the Forum question for issue 84

For me it would be 2 Amstrad CPC games, Double Dragon & the "Heroes" compilation. This was a REALLY big deal for me as no one was selling Amstrad games in Australia anymore at that time.

Re: any good au retro stores?

Gametraders are all independantly run, so some are better than others depending on who's in charge. I can only speak for South Australia, but you there's "Games 4 All" which is like SNES heaven at the moment, Gamebizz which still sell brand new games for old systems & Retro Nation which sell old vid...

Re: Complaint

I also had a similar problem when ordering a Retro Gamer special after I missed buying it at the newsagent. It was shipped in a padded envelope that got ripped on the way. Consequently the magazine was also ripped. After an email explaining the situation they kindly sent another one but sadly it too...

Re: Super Mario All-Stars Returns

Mine is pre ordered. Again, I'm one of the "I'm only buying it for the extras" people. The price isn't too bad either.

Re: If the controller fits..

The only 3rd party controller I'm interested in is a Hori N64 controller. The Nintendo original is OK to use, but after a while when the stick comes loose (which doesn't take long on some controllers) they're downright horrible.

Re: My old CPC 6128 with green monitor.

Side of the machine. Note the external tape connector, and the inverted joystick port ( so only joysticks made specifically for the CPC can be used with it... ) Sorry... wha?? On my CPC 6128 & 464 I can use just about anything that fits the standard 9-PIN connector, including a Master System contro...
