Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

But anyway, KO "copying Micro Soccer viewpoint almost to the centimetre" is again very wrong. Both games share the bird's eye view, but if you look at screenshot of the two games, how can you say KO's a copy?

It's not an answer, it's an evasion, which is the exact opposite of an answer.

The Neo-Geo thread was a car-crash because of precisely what you're doing now.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

... you're telling us that you can't actually tell us what you're objecting to I never said that. And that's four. What is it you actually object to about the Kick Off feature? "Go and read through 20 pages of comments to find out" is not an answer, for reasons I've already pointed out. So just tel...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Blah blah. I find a near-infallible sign that someone's lost an argument is when they spend several sentences/paragraphs/posts huffily explaining why it is they CAN'T simply tell you what it is they're trying to say, rather than just saving a lot time and saying it. It's a simple enough question: i...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

I've said what I wished to say on the matter already. Just as certain other people have here. It's all there in the thread. You may not agree but that's fine. I don't agree because I no longer understand what your objection is. It certainly SOUNDED a lot like you were unhappy that someone with a di...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Yes. Had it been an eight-page Kick Off feature that DIDN'T criticise it, would you be complaining? Are you sure about that? Yes, I most likely would. Okay, so I'm confused, then. If it's okay to have opinions that differ from yours, what IS it that you're complaining about? I've totally lost track...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Will RG be repeating this approach in future, i.e. letting someone who despises a whole game series use the magazine as a platform to air their wholly negative opinions? Had the article been written by someone wholly positive about the Kick Off series would I have been justified to spit my dummy ou...

Yes. You could easily get into the Amiga Top 20 in 1991 with a few hundred sales. But hey, what would I know about it, right?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Maybe i was off the mark, but even 1/2 million sales were big number back then as Darren implied, but that doesnt cover up the fact it was in the charts for weeks through word of mouth and great magazine reviews through the board, if you liked it or not. Nobody was denying that. But Kick Off/KO2 ha...
