Well we just got this issue in Oz and I've only had a quick read. However, loved the Pitfall article, David Crane always seemed to be pretty accessable and I'm happy to see he hasn't changed since the glory days. (He was my hero when I was a kid.) Can't wait to read the Pitfall 2 article, that game ...

Whats the first game you ever completed?
Adventure on the good old 2600. Pretty easy stuff, Prince Square had to grab the glowing eggcup and take it back to the gold castle.

If you aren't using a PC or X-Box for emulation I'd have to say the PS2 is the weapon of choice.

I'd go for both the Taito collections, both the Capcom Collections and the first two Midway/Williams collections. Through in some of the Sega ones and you'll be set for at least a year :)

Getting back on topic I remember one interview where Singleton cheekily said that maybe Eye of the Moon could be set in modern times and you would find that the contested forests and plains of Midnight had been converted into shopping malls and parking lots :)

Got one for Christmas/Birthday after a mate of mine showed me his prize games. Bruce Lee, Gremlins, Cauldron 2 and Uridium sold me on it. Also in Australia the C64 was THE machine. The Amstrad made a decent second runner and as for the Speccy, I only ever heard about some imported ones. I remember l...

Cool! :o Keep these comparisons coming! :D How about doing a comparison of Bruce Lee between the 3 formats please? I strongly believe that the Spectrum version is the best version of the 3. Disagree, I think the C64 is better. The Speccy version is very very close. I reckon Atari 8bit owners might ...

US Gold's home 16 bit Gauntlet 3.

Always wanted to play the C64 version of that.

Someone else can have my go.

Got to be Empire Strikes Back on the Atari 2600. It still plays a good as the day I bought it in the 80's ($41AUS- very expensive) Apparently it was released in an unfinshed state. I read somewhere that one of the execs saw the success of the game as an example that people would buy any old crap th...

Sad thing about it is that it dropped the NES games. The 'Cube version is worth dusting down at least around Christmas for the chance at getting Donkey Knog Jr or Excitebike.

I've been at both ends of the spectrum but I've finally settled on a routine. I always have one 'quest/campaign' game on the go at any one time. I'll play this until I either complete it or I grow to hate it. (SaGa Frontier 2 for instance was one game I gave up on in disgust.) And then I'll have a h...

Here's a shorter version for those of you who don't like my leftist whining and want a more capitalist approach.

Make your product widely available at a decent price and the average man on the street won't be tempted to pirate it.

Piracy is wrong. It is an unassailable truth. Democratically elected officials drew up legislation and laws were passed that said Piracy is essentially a form of theft. Breaking the law is wrong. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse, ...(snip)If you copy ancient unwanted uncared for long lost game...

Neuromancer was pretty good as well. I loved the fact you could send 'emails' and get quite conversational responses in return!

Pretty impressive for the good old C64.

Llamatron. The game that introduced me to Robotron. What other game has a giant toilet for a game boss that throws toilet rolls at you. It even explodes in a show of crap fragments when you beat it!

Sadly I bet this post makes the mag :(
