Re: Batty and Ultimate connection

An amazing game and even more amazing that it was a covermount. It would be like strapping a triple a title to a magazine nowadays!

Re: RIP Roddy Piper

Re: terrible games that you like

Looking back on some Zzap and Crash reviews you get to see how harshly some decent games were treated. Wonderboy on the 64 is as good as it could possibly be and all in one load too, not sure what they were expecting really but it's playable and responsive and compares well to the Master System vers...

Re: My PS3 is dying

I should hope that Microsoft and Sony have learned their lessons with the 360 and PS3 and hope PS4 and Xbox One owners have it a bit easier on the reliability front!
