Re: Did you complete any arcade games?

In ashamed to say ''no' although me and a mate completed 'Vigilante' on our dinner hour at school in the local kebab shop.

Re: Virtual Reality Reborn (Oculus Rift) - Who's excited?

Apart from the reported motion sickness, I am really looking forward to see how we'll they do with this. It looks like the technology is there for sure, I wonder will they adapt this for next gen consoles? Imagine the possibilities of games like Skyrim and Forza. How about a really good horror game ...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

Empire: How Britain Made the Modern World by Niall Ferguson. Apparently it's the companion to a Channel 4 documentary show. Oh and, after months of pestering a friend to loan it to me and being disappointed, I got the BBC4 dramatisation of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Also read a short story a...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

Not sure if I have mentioned it before but you guys must read 'Ready Player One' by Ernest Cline. As a lover of retro games and all things 80's it's a must read. Recently started 'Kalki' by Gore Vidal. Also read a short story a while ago that blew my mind. Isaac Asminov's 'The Last Question'. If you...

Think I'm going to struggle watching Ben Affleck trying to kick Superman's back side.

Re: Flashback HD remake/reboot/call it what you will

Comparing it to the original, the remake is awful. New players to the game may fare alot better as it's ok for an xbla/psn title. Would like to see a Retro/Original mode patched in that switches alot of the newer items/voices off, adds flip screen and allows original game to be played full screen. ...

Re: Where do you read Retro Gamer?

I save my latest RG until I'm able to sit down and enjoy it properly. I refrain from reading it on the loo as I like to try and keep my mags in good condition... I'd be mortified if they got "soiled" in any way! Lol, I also try to keep mine in good shape but as I read them in the bath I sometimes d...

Re: Shadow of the Beast coming for the PS4

I bet they could tag a random title to this game and no one would ever even think of relating it to Shadow Of The Beast.

Re: What games got you hyped up?

Star Wars The Old Republic got me super hyped for some time and i was an active member on the forums, however when they gave you a couple of weeks trial before release I was horrified. The game was so linear and broken I was truly upset, needless to say I never bought it. Maybe it's a better game no...

Re: survival horror news

Loved Res 1, 2 and 3. Bought 5 a while ago and played it for ten minutes and hated it.

However I bought 4 recently to play on my sons Wii having missed it first time around. Not played it yet though.

Re: What games got you hyped up?

MGS was the game that made me decide to get my PS1 'chipped.' After waiting for months, having had the game preordered and it had been out in NTSC areas for several months, I got the message from the game store that the game had been delayed AGAIN, and would be another 4-5 months before release. I ...
