Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

paranoid marvin wrote:Some of the criticism is fair, especially of the later games in the series, but to say that Kick Off 2 is 'essentially the same game' as Kick Off 1 is like saying that Pro Evo is essentially the same as Matchday II.
That's quite clearly a very silly thing to say.

Re: Official Feedback Issue 103

Its pretty common in publishing to have proof readers who do just that, checking for typos and grammatical errors after the editing process. Sadly, not any more it's not. The value of sub-editors ended at roughly the same time the general public's ability to spell or punctuate properly did. Even gr...

EEWW! Too much information, man.

Now you're not going to upset the precious Neo Geo scene again are you? :lol:
Much better than that.

Re: Is this really the best you can do?

No particular reason. You'll be pleased (or annoyed, depending on which angle you were asking from) to hear that I've just submitted an eight-page Definitive for issue 104, though.

Re: Issue 97 Official Feedback

Slightly disappointed to see no mention of Wipeout in the Batty boxout, would have liked to hear the story behind that. But it was nice to see someone write a six-page summary of my Definitive Frogger for new readers who didn't see the proper version... :wink:

Re: PS Vita vs 3DS

I'll likely do what I did last time; get a 3DS to play with my friends who have 3DS consoles too. When the price falls on the Vita to around £60, £70 I'll buy it to play into the next gen (like I have the PSP) with the games really really cheap. Given that the PSP hasn't even fallen that low yet, y...

The whole magazine is brilliant, but the Amiga Art article really is superb - MORE please
I personally would like to vote for there being much, much less Amiga art. One feature in 94 issues is at least one too many.

Re: Issue 94 Feedback Thread

Liked the GBA piece, and especially happy to see the awesome Guru Logi Champ get some much-deserved kudos, but since when was Bit Generations: Digidrive about "propelling a disc as far as possible"? None of the BG series fit that description, and Digidrive is a chaos-management action-puzzler set on...

Re: Questions for Gary 'Zzap' Penn

Hello all. My next castaway is someone who should be familiar to those who read games magazines in the 80s (especially if you had a Commodore machine). Gary Penn's CV (well, highlights of it...) is pasted below and includes involvement with plenty of games as well as mags. As always, ask whatever y...

Re: The Edge: 8-Bit software house in IP troll scandal.

Well there's a twist! Tim Langdell in actually releasing a game shocker! :shock: I haven't clicked on your link but I know what it's about. The game isn't worth discussing. It's probably there to reinforce Langdell's future IP trolling claims. Even if the game's intention is to actually make money ...

Re: I played and loved X but never played Y

Adored GTA3 to a life-ruining degree, hardly played Vice City, barely even loaded San Andreas and gave GTA4 about two hours.
