Re: Your fave FPS series

Tough. Unreal 1, Doom 2 and Half Life 2 are the best examples of the genre to me. I've recently played Quake 1 for the first time and loved every minute, plus there are the truly wonderful Jedi Knight games and Duke Nukem has always provided me with great enjoyment. I think i'll have to go with Unre...

Re: return of Age of Empires

I will always be perfectly happy with Age of Empires 2. I didn't buy AoE3 and i won't be buying AoE4! It's one of those series for me that gave me everything i wanted in one game so i have no reason to play any others. Settlers 2 is another one of these such games.

Re: PlayStation game banned

Too little too late IMO. There are WAY too many titles out there that have been doing this for years, this is just one game and it's probably not even the worst offender, the whole Anime art style has been sexualising young characters for decades.

Re: My year of PS2

WAY too many great games on this system. Trouble is the oddities tend not to be cheap! A mixture of odd, exclusive and awesome titles: Psychonauts We Love Katamari Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds Global Defence Force Sky Odyssey Rogue Trooper Savage Skies Transformers (2004) - Best ever Trans...

Re: Atari Flashback Classics Collections XB1/PS4

That's kinda ridiculous. £14.99 for each volume, both have around 50 games. Or shell out £15 total for Activision Anthology and Atari Anthology on PS2 and have ~130 of the best games on two discs with no installation or updates required! Also i recently played the Atari collection of these and for s...

Re: Most wanted unreleased games?

The first two builds of Duke Nukem Forever looked awesome, even if they weren't as groundbreaking as Broussard wanted. Easy to say now, but one or both of those games should have been finished and released in order to fund future entries. I'm not displeased with the DNF we finally got, i love it. Bu...

Re: Your fave adventure game

I thought this might be tricky, but turns out it was easy. I love nearly all of the point & click games, but nothing can touch the Monkey Island series for puzzles, storyline and humour. The alternatives aren't bad but it's like comparing Blake Stone to Duke Nukem.

Re: New Friday The 13th game

There's also an isometric puzzle game on Steam with the F13 theme. http://store.steampowered.com/app/79510 ... er_Puzzle/
You can play the first 8 Episodes for free, each episode has 13 levels so you get a lot of game for nothing. I like it, it's good fun.

Re: What games would you like to see remastered?

Some PS1 games are just crying out for a re-release (whether that be in the form of a remake or remaster). Treasures of the Deep - Yes, there have been underwater games since, but none have nailed the discovery vs shooting ratio as excellently as this one. Whether you're fighting other submersibles,...

Re: What's your favourite Nintendo arcade game?

Haven't played any of them. If i came across them in an arcade, then i'd most likely put my cash into F-Zero (AX or regular).

Re: Movies that never got games

Not necessarily a movie (there's comics too), but I think we never saw a good Superman game. Jurassic Park also seems to be lacking good games - I liked the MD one but it wasn't exactly brilliant. There's some interesting dino survival sims for PC though, "Saurian", "The Isle", etc. There are three...
