Re: Selling sealed Radiant Silvergun - looking for advice

£250 for Radiant Silvergun? I feel sorry for genuine collectors wishing to pay through the nose for stuff like this, when others just treat this industry as a business and way to make a quick quid. Its an awful lot of money for a jewel case, instructions and a compact disc with an ISO on, when you c...

Re: Streets of Rage 2 - Runs Slow WTF?

I thought the PAL 50Hz was probably TOO obvious a problem to point out here, since the OP did make the point that the speed of the other games were fine, and the intro music of SOR2 sounded normal. That said, if you're going to compare it to SOR 2 footage on youtube, it could likely be comparing 50h...

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

Hmm, I didn't think it was trolling. I just assumed everyone accepted that because the Spectrum was quickest at loading tapes without sacrificing reliability, and the coloured loading bars gave you a good indication of anything that was wrong. So are there people here in the know who think the C64 ...

Re: IRC Retro Gaming Chat 9pm Sunday from July 15th

The biggest sporting weekend of the year arrives with both the men's singles final at Wimbledon and the World Cup Final not only on the same day, but probably at the same time as well, the first occasion that's ever happened. England of course won't be in that final, and truth be told they didn't d...

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

Looking at the answers, it's clearly dependant on what computer you had. It it were an Atari 8 bit, then disks were better cause tapes took three years to load. The C64 wasn't much better till later on when turbos brought load times under six minutes. With the Spectrum though - the best micro for t...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

You do wonder if we will ever get such a lucky route through any time soon. It was quite remarkable. The only world class team we played was Belgium, which we of course lost. This semi-final, 3rd/4th finish is a great result, but lets hope we don't get too carried away. We finished group runners up,...

Re: Franchises and games you are surprised haven't returned

Speaking of EA....but not shocked to see its not returned, but the (Desert) Strike series disappeared after Nuclear Strike in 1997. Always liked these games (especially the 16 bit ones), and been playing some of them again recently on Megadrive.

Come on EA, put out a remastered Strike anthology!

Re: From The Forum issue 183 - Tetris: Best puzzler ever?

Just started reading this issue, and this may be the first edition that my partner took interest in, as she LOVES Tetris (must be some sort of eastern european thing!) :lol: Love the original Gameboy version of Tetris (perhaps THE essential GB game), and sure its where most people got started, but w...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

Well gutted ! But one stat they showed late on said it all, Croatia 7 shots on target at goal, England 1. Think we just ran out of steam second half, not any great chances. Kane should have scored in the first half, if he had tapped it across it would have been a goal. Shame But Croatia were the be...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

In terms of individual talent, experience and player value, this is one of Englands "weakest" squads, and with a pretty inexperienced manager (at top level), but by the miracle of a kind draw, and perhaps the fearless nature of a youthful team with low expectations, we have made it to the semi-final...

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

Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes. I think this may be the third time I've owned it. :lol: Ordered from CEX for £42 which is the cheapest I could find it. It came in a tatty "Player's Choice" box and without the manual. I guess you get what you pay for. :| Ouch, can't believe Gamecube games are valued ...
