Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Changing the name to Chiptune Gamer was a bit over-the-top, though.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Yeah, yeah, I'm bored of whiny Kick Off fans now. How the hell is Sensible Soccer like Sokoban?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Sensible Soccer isn't football, it's a twisted form of Sokoban. I would seriously love to hear the rationale behind that conclusion. Just play it, you'll either see it or you won't. One thing Sensi isn't is football. I disagree. It's more like football than any football videogame I've ever played b...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

(actually, Stu doesn't write in the first person, using the royal 'we' like other freelancers, but i get what Daz means - Stu C is allowed to express his opinions pretty freely). In fact I'm normally allowed a tiny bit of privilege in that regard, but this month some mustard-keen sub stripped even ...

You noticed that the piece WASN'T called "The Definitive Kick Off", right?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

quote sales figures to prove one is better than another means nothing It's lucky that nobody did that, then. Twist it all you like but you did state several times how Sensi sold vastly better than KO did. You also stated several times how KO didn't sell at all well. What I didn't do, however, was c...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

I'll happily discuss features all day, but it's incredibly frustrating, depressing and ultimately boring to continually be told you've written something you haven't written, by people appare...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

see I have the ability to understand that someone might dislike a game but I wouldn't dream of forcing my opinion on people like you have. Sorry, how exactly does one go about "forcing" an opinion on someone else? The opinion is presented, you can agree or disagree with it, you can even argue about...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

What about the "barely 100 games for the Amiga in 1990"? Just to say one. Oh for goodness' sake. Over-literal much? There was a Top 100, so OBVIOUSLY there were considerably more than 100 games. It's a figure of speech, a slightly more colourful way of pointing out that there were far fewer games a...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

We've still not seen any proof yet of proper factual mistakes other than the colection mention. Much as I hate to quibble with anyone who's defending me :D, that's not actually a mistake either. I didn't say the collection WASN'T available on other formats, I just said that it was SUPPOSEDLY availa...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Except I posted more than one fact, argued why saying KO copying "to the centimetre" MS viewpoint (already used by other games, and certainly not a carbon-copy of MS view) isn't correct, Yes it is. Look at the pictures. They're at identical heights, where almost but not quite all of the centre circ...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Not really, distance and most of all pitch size are different, as well as overhead map, cartoonish-style, etc. MS is much more like Tehkan World Cup than KO is like MS. Who said otherwise? All I said was that it copied the VIEWPOINT. I have no idea why you're disputing that, since it's staggeringly...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Good grief. The original point was that previous football games had used totally different perspectives. The point within that isn't the overhead view, it's the DISTANCE of the overhead view. (Kick Off's is almost identical to Microprose Soccer's. Sensi's is much higher up.) This discussion is gett...
