Re: Dragon's Breath on the ST and Amiga

Here's its Lemon Amiga page(if that's allowed by the mods) :- http://www.lemonamiga.com/?mainurl=http%3A//www.lemonamiga.com/help/tutorial_1/1.php I grant you - it's quite a niche game. Like I said, I don't think it was a big seller on either the Amiga or ST. It was a pack-in title in the 520 STe T...

Re: Most important football games of all time?

I would have liked to see European Club Soccer and Premier Manager. They weren't important to everyone but they were important to me.

Glad to see Championship Manager there. Once you've played anything from CM3 onwards it's impossible to take other football management sims seriously.

Re: Original Gameboy Collector's Guide

Just taken a look in my unopened copy of #147 and there is also a Minority Report article on Japanese GB games. Sorry for the oversight.

Re: Any overhead view train game?

Thomas the Tank Engine on the Mega Drive would be a good way to go.

Re: Cartoon conversions

The TMNT games have come up a lot but that's because most of them are side-scrolling beat-em-ups which appeal to the arcade fans. TMNT IV on the SNES has a ton of references to the films/cartoons with appearances from Slash, the Rat King, Tokka and Razor and the fly version of Baxter Stockman. There...

Re: Super Monaco GP feature?

For me, this game is the killer app on the Game Gear. Been playing since I was 11 and still keep going back.

Original Gameboy Collector's Guide

Has RG ever done a collector's guide for the original GB? I've found them for NES, SNES and N64 but not the GB. I enjoy reading the articles included in the hardware handbooks but it would be nice to see something a bit more in-depth with a list of games, popular imports and accessories as well as a...

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

The last book I read was Doctor Sleep. It's a sequel to The Shining that was written by Stephen King 36 years after the original book was published. The story follows Danny as a grown adult. He's a recovering alcoholic (just like his old man) who works at a hospice and uses his Shining ability to pr...

Re: Top 25 Saturn Games

In hindsight, a top 25 list seems a bit too ambitious since I've only played about 30 Saturn games so I've condensed my list down to a top 10: 1) Sega Rally Championship 2) Virtua Cop 2 3) Nights into Dreams 4) Marvel vs Street-Fighter 5) Sonic R 6) Shinobi X 7) Daytona USA 8) Tempest 2000 9) Alien ...

Re: Windows XP support ends in April

I'm still using XP and my plan is to continue doing so while gradually branching out to Linux. I was recently given an empty PC tin as a hand-me-down and if I successfully manage to build a PC from scratch it will most likely have a Linux OS.

Re: Do any of you still watch Retro Cartoons?

My favourite retro cartoon is The Real Ghostbusters. I paid £110 for the complete DVD box set and it's great to be able to watch the episodes I remember from childhood that didn't make it onto the budget DVDs on the High Street as well as the ones I didn't see when I was a kid. The only drawback is ...

Re: Introduce yourself

I subscribe to RG and have been reading the magazine since #98; the Game Gear collector's guide was what finally sold it to me and since then RG has been an indispensible resource to me; especially the C64/Spectrum book, the Atari book, the Mega Drive/SNES book and the Hardware book. I've been a mem...
