Re: what is your biggest disappointment in gaming

Gameboy Color - all the years of rumours of a colour Gameboy, finally arrived 9 long years later, to the biggest disapointment, the main part - the screen is truly awful, unplayable in alot of light conditions, other handhelds at the time did it better such as the Wonderswan and NeoGeo Pocket. If w...

Re: this guys opinion on the original xbox

I enjoyed the original Xbox, some great titles from Sega, first amazing experience with Halo, proper online gaming with very few annoying twats online at the time. Imo the think the PS3 and Xbox360 was duller, way too long life cycle, same FPS and sport crap every year, at least this gen there are p...

It's good to see that they've sorted out their differences and can work together once more. I just hope that they've given Minter a fair contract this time.
More like good to see they 'asked' Jeff code them a new version of Tempest so he didn't get sued for over TxK! :lol:

Re: Racing Apex

Art style is cool, very late 80's/early 90s Polygon racing game style, looking forward to a PS4 port of this, hoping not too much longer, been a while now!

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Yes they did, but had to pull out over legal reasons.. Both Limited Run and Kotaku reported this as I'm not omniscient and I've never heard off badlands . I paid £2 On digital, and finished it so I'm alright so that's all that matters :wink: I don't think they did, they said they "wanted to release...

Cool its working.
