Re: console battle Q14 XBOX 360 VS PLAYSTATION 3

Xbox 360, it's not by Sony or Nintendo, so it's obviously the best choice

Re: console battle Q12 SEGA DREAMCAST VS PLAYSTATION 2

For people that have played both systems a lot, I can't see why they voted PS2

Re: Console battle Q7 SUPER NINTENDO VS MEGADRIVE

Would have voted for the Megadrive as I never got much fun out of my SNES. Sega is always better ;)

Re: Console battle Q4 AMSTRAD GX4000 VS COMMODORE C64GS

Should this not be in the main section? Anyway, GX4000 is definitely the better machine, at least it improved the hardware. What were the different specs? Did they make the GX4000 more powerful than the standard 464? Repost of my previous post in this thread! :shock: Even the bog standard Amstrad C...

Re: Console battle Q4 AMSTRAD GX4000 VS COMMODORE C64GS

Even the bog standard Amstrad CPC can do things like what are shown below Pinball Dreams http://youtube.com/watch?v=AUnwb-Ujzh8 Batman Forever demo http://youtube.com/watch?v=QadPMxfQxS4 The GX4000 has hardware sprites, better hardware scrolling, DMA sound, 32 colours onscreen before any tricks are ...

Re: Console battle Q4 AMSTRAD GX4000 VS COMMODORE C64GS

Best hardware? No discussion, the Amstrad GX4000, except for sound.
Best games? Discuss! My guess, if you pick only a handful games, the Amstrad wins

Re: Console battle Q4 AMSTRAD GX4000 VS COMMODORE C64GS

But all the C64GS games were just brown and grey crap games weren't they? And they were 24.99 not 1.99 and there were few of them. Not one ofn them did anything a C64 couldn't so why buy one? The games were priced between £15-25 depending on the publisher. And Navy SEALS and Robocop 2 are definitel...

Re: Console battle Q4 AMSTRAD GX4000 VS COMMODORE C64GS

Has to be the C64GS here. It is utterly pointless, but the quality of C64 games available on cart mean the GX4000's limited library can't begin to compete. But all the C64GS games were just brown and grey crap games weren't they? And they were 24.99 not 1.99 and there were few of them. Not one ofn ...

Re: Bookazines / Specials

We've not had an Amstrad bookazine before. I seem to recall Darran saying that it wouldn't sell well, but maybe a a combined Amstrad/Spectrum edition would work. It would'nt sell to anyone outside CPC fans at all... so I made my own personal copy. I would rather have seperate Amstrad and Spectrum b...

Looks like a quick port of the C64 graphics. Had it been native on the Amstrad, it would have had better choice of colours and shading and more use of free placement of colours

Are you sure it was ever released?
