Re: Midnight Resistance - Any fans?

Great game, like others on here, had the Amiga version. The flamethrower was a terrific weapon, and picking up those keys which looked like lollipops were the absolute aim of the game. If you didn't have 6 keys on the last level, you had to choose which members of your family to save....naturally, w...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

I'm still sticking with the 'Should have gone with a different name' argument Wii 2 Wii HD Super Wii There, all better names. That wasn't so hard, was it Nintendo Super Wii! Yes, bring back the glory days of the SNES....we could abbreviate it the SWii. Nintendo have clearly blundered a lot with thi...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25772276 Sobering news from ninty... Cutting Wii u sale forecasts by 70%. Time for them to drop the price. I'm not far of justifying buying one. Super Mario 3D World, the upcoming Mario Kart and some other gems would certainly be worth shelling out say £130 for the ...

Re: Sega Saturn Vs Sony Playstation 1

Yoshi's Island, DKC 3 and Sonic & Knuckles were hardly "dreadful" platformers. :wink: They were exceptions to the rule. The industry needed a change, and it may have not been initially easy, with the first batch of 3D games on PS1/SAT being quite shallow, like Ridge Racer, Virtua Fighter etc, but w...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

Also must worth noting that these mean "NATIVE" HD resolution....as my Xbox (original) upscales Megadrive and SNES games to 720p, but couldn't really classify that as HD :D

Re: Sega Saturn Vs Sony Playstation 1

got to hand it to sony, they used to know how to flog hardware - but - i'll take any 2d Saturn game (or 2d psone game for that matter) over any of the 3d games on the psone all day, everyday. I felt the same back when the consoles were released to though, so maybe I was retro before retro was. or s...

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

To retrogamerdude : Some great games in those 4, but the cartridges on the SMS are so dull!

Also, how did Sega get away with calling it Super Tennis (or Nintendo doing it for their game)??

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

I won't hide that I find the PS Vita a better mobile gaming platform than the 3DS, from a hardware perspective. Hardware means nothing in the mobile gaming front. When has the most powerful handheld console EVER won its generation? The Lynx and Game Gear were comfortably beaten by the Gameboy. The ...

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

Nintendo always like to shoot themselves in the foot. Although I think for that generation, they were probably always going to finish 3rd behind Sony and Microsoft (least they beat Sega!).

Re: Is the Atari Jaguar the most underrated console system?

There doesn't appear to be any games in its library that i'm yearning to play, and i'm not that fussed that emulation of the Jaguar isn't up to scratch. Tempest 2000 I believe was competently ported to the PS1, and even the Saturn version is reasonable. Doom might be decent on the Jaguar, but its no...

The Saturn Virtua Cops, and realising that I need to go pick up a nice little CRT TV to play them properly (as well as the other 10 or so light gun games in my posession)

Re: Being an older gamer

Ahh, good memories - Commandos and Blade Runner on PC. I think my three PC time consumers growing up were Sim City 2000, Dungeon Keeper and Premier Manager (or that might have been Championship Manager, can never remember). The perception on games is always changing. Its not like the early 90s when ...
