Re: Wii soft modding help!

I have previous 'letterbombed' my WII and C64 emulation has been fantastic, but I have done little else with it. As I'm happy to start over and lose any data, would you recommend a 'return to factory settings' and install ModMii, or go down the path of Pimp my Wii?

At first I wanted to cook him, but over time I've become quite attached to the little fella. I'd love to get him some company, but been warned against it as he has been on his own all t...

Re: The Retrogamer ultimate "Events Games" mash-up

It's definitely allowed. In fact I did toy with picking it myself! Loved Combat School, but could never finish the mission at the end!

Re: "console" games that were better on home computers

California Games C64 - console versions looked prettier, no multi load and so on. But they didn't feel quite right to me. I can't really explain it. Also I didn't mind the multi load too much - you normally played it with mates, so the time was used as bragging rights, betting and arguing. A 'nice' ...

Re: Favourite Quake Game

I never took to Quake like I did with other FPS games of the era. To this day I can't put my finger on it as I loved the genre. However, I did enjoy a bit of multiplayer based Quake especially one map, the only map me and my mates played - Ziggurat Vertigo! Low gravity and rocket jumping ahoy!

Re: Best version of the original Turtles game

I quite liked the C64 version but found it hard and my interest would wane the further I would get in the game.

The Retrogamer ultimate "Events Games" mash-up

We all remember the multi themed sports games of the 80s onwards - a collection of different events, mostly multiplayer, based around a certain theme. Games like Decathlon, Track and Field, the Epyx "events" games, and so on. If you could pick just one event from the various games, what would you pi...

Re: New Indiana Jones - 2019

No. Just no. Crystal skull was awful. Now and again I'll give it another shot, especially if it's on TV. 'It may have improved', 'maybe I was being harsh'. No. It's still $hite. It spoiled a near-perfect trilogy, which in itself is extremely rare. Back to the Future, The original Star Wars Trilogy a...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Here's a few for me today - The whole AC/DC fiasco - Picked up tickets as I previously missed the previous tour and it's my 40th birthday. Never seen them live before and thought I'd better go before they call it a day, load of my mates also going, flat in London booked for the weekend and so on. Co...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Got myself a copy too! Look me up for some multiplayer based fart arsing around. I played it once before for a bit online and was impressed, especially with the flying bits.

Re: I've got my first XBox 360. Now what?

Thanks everyone for the advice. I think the 'installed games' query has hijacked the thread slightly! To make it clear, I have no plans to take over the previous person's account details like a plot device to some z grade Sci-Fi film. It was just one of several questions as I dont have the foggiest ...

Re: I've got my first XBox 360. Now what?

No Beans they haven't. The system was bought as part of a job lot at a local auction (with other consoles) This is why I'd like to 'factory reset' the machine. I was just surprised that there were games on it already. But based on the comments already made, they must have been demo versions as like ...

Can you change your PS3 username?

My PS3 'name' is a reminder of a past life I had and bar the birth of my son, a past life I want to forget about. So a petty, picky request, but is there any way of changing your username without losing anything? Now I've got an Xbox, (see other thread) I think its time I finally changed my username...

I've got my first XBox 360. Now what?

Hi all. A good mate of mine has kindly given me an Xbox 360 for sweet FA as CEX refused to take it. Apparently the CD drive wont open when the console on its side. It also came with a joy pad and cables but no games............or so I thought.......Its a black one, with a HD stuck to the side and I ...
