Re: CD Boxsets

I've been pondering getting the Split Enz boxset, but seeing as I purchased all the digitally remastered albums before the set came out I can't justify the cost.

Re: Best Romantic Games

I recently got a PC-FX & tried the translation of Welcome to Pia Carrot. It's the only game of its genre I've ever played & it's actually quite interesting. It's romantic in a sense that if you only want one thing you won't get the good ending with whichever girl you choose. That being said I'm not ...

Re: Games I would like to see in the magazine

Nothing specific, but I've always said more import classics is always a good thing. Little gems most of us may never have heard of always interest me.

Re: Software Houses RIP

I'm opting for the popular choice: Ocean Software. While by no means consistent, when they made a good game, they MADE A GOOD GAME!!! Sadly when they made a rubbish one... well as above but with the negative in place of the positive...

Re: FAO Darran, Super Play feature long overdue

It could be the reason why we haven't seen an Amstrad Action article or any other article (from memory) from Future Publishing. It's kinda supporting the opposition. That being said I got the final 4 issues of Super Play I needed the other day & I have a near mint set of all 47 issues :)

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Last week actually, but I got me a PC-FX. It's a fine machine, but it would be even better if I spoke Japanese :) Also got the PC Kid remake on Gamecube & Saturn Bomberman which I hear is mighty fine How's PC-Kid play? Is it improved, or just the same but with shinier graphics? PC-FX is a ton of fu...

Re: Favourite gaming magazines

I used to collect Amstrad Action, C+VG, Nintendo Magazine System (Australian) & Gamestar. I also had the odd issue of other magazines. Today I'm recollecting Amstrad Action, & am 5 issues off a complete Super Play collection. I'm also only missing 3 issues of Gamestar, though that mag only went for ...

Re: New Versus Old - Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Super Mario 64

I couldn't get into either of the Galaxy games. It's probably got to do with the overly free camera & the running sideways & upside down thing. Mario 64, well I've started another game of that recently thanks to the good old Virtual Console. It's fantastic as always.

Re: Tracking collections

I just use the boring old Excel spreadsheet. I've considered using one of those collection sites, but I haven't had the time to go set it up right now.

Re: Rainbow Islands - Best Boss

As I said in the other thread I'm a sucker for a good cameo, so it has to be Doh from Arkanoid. It was a challenge to get to him & it was a challenge to beat him. I can't remember what happens after he's defeated... maybe I never did beat him... childhood memories get lost over the years I'm afraid.

Re: Rainbow Islands - Why is it a classic?

I've always felt it was well deserving of classic status simply because they took the series in a new direction & it worked VERY well. The sequel Parasol Stars is a good game, but as it goes back to the original Bubble Bobble formula, I guess it feels a little too... "safe" is the word I'm looking f...

Re: Rainbow Islands - Best Moment

Battling against Doh from Arkanoid. He's pretty far in the game, but when I first reached him I was pleasantly surprised. I'm a sucker for a good cameo appearance!!
