Re:

I'm racking my brain for some other example of another game being pulled from shelves or released to a select few. I know I posted that it doesn't belong in top 100, but I kinda feel bad for steven, and decided to look for one reason it should remain. Great Giana Sisters on the Speccy... But even t...

I did vote "no" in the poll.
But I have no problem with a compromise - Polybius being given an honorary position 101 or something.

I want to compose a sentence which makes reference to the "sitting of one person upon the face of another person", but can't really bring myself to.
Needless to say, they may very well be in love...

I was a dedicated follower of Crash, and bought every issue. But I was eventually won over by Your Sinclair too. Looking back, that was probably the witter mag, and the writing was more inventive. I bought the odd issue of Sinclair User, but it wasn't a patch on the other two. What was the name of t...

Not playing games.

Heh - only joking.
Or were you rolling at my misuse of the possessive apostrophe...?

Re:

At the end of the day, a magazine is as good as the platform it is covering. Not really. A magazine is as good as the people who are writing for it, those editing it (in terms of the magazine's direction) and those publishing it (in terms of enabling the editors and writers to have some freedom).

Good question. Because I have rather big hands. And - apart from the PlayStation controllers, which I have always found spot on - I have never been able to hold controllers "properly". What I mean is, I always found it more comfortable to rest my controllers flat on a surface. Then use my left-hand ...

Re:

One thing I've noticed... the way games reviews have gradually slipped further and further towards the back of games mags. That is so true. At the end of the day, a magazine is as good as the platform it is covering. And, at the end of the day, a platform is as good as the games which are available...

Okay, I thought to myself - there are not enough hours in my life to pursue this kind of thing. But I can't help thinking about this: We then received a call from bank requesting the name of the account to be set up under and Ulrich took the call and just blurted out Sinnesloschen - he thought it so...

EDIT: Post limit ate the second half of that post.^^^ :x

Which was convenient, because now I guess I'll just drop this.

You gave answers to my questions.
I'm definitely satisfied with one and half of them.

This could go on forever though... so I don't think I'll bother.



Respect.

OK Mr Get_In_gear, my opinion on you is rather limited but I respect the fact that you have taken a lot of time to write what you have.

Firstly, SR - as I said, no offense intended. I am just calling it as I see it. Clearly you have read very little of anything that i've taken to write for the benefit of people who want to know more about the game, i've explained and given reasons for every single point you make so your opinion and ...

I can't believe we are almost there... Sorry to drag up the Polybius thing again, but our opinion was asked. I don't think the issue is availability of the game in 2006. The issue is the availability - nay - the very existence of the game EVER. I don't have a problem including a game which only one ...
