Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

@Spooky: That's no coincidence that it's similiar to Die Hard Arcade, since it's the sequel to it :) I figured it was indeed related to it, but I didn't remember the plot in die Hard Arcade well enough to assume it was its sequel. And I remembered reading something about Dyn. Cop being an "unoffici...

Re: Has anyone ever lost the "love" for a genre?

For me it's not about losing when playing online. I can deal with that. I rather dislike the overall tone which has become the norm with online gaming. With gaming getting more and more mainstream it attracts even more asshats than in the past. And the result of it is a severe increase in flaming, r...

Re: Has anyone ever lost the "love" for a genre?

FPS for me, too. Don't get me wrong, I still play them and have fun with them. But the utter joy I had with the likes of Duke Nukem 3D or even Soldier of Fortune isn't there anymore for the most part. There are exceptions, like Half-Life or Left 4 Dead, hell, even the new Wolfenstein. But I can't un...

Re: What Bullfrog games need to be remade?

I'd love a remake of Dungeon Keeper. Perhaps a conversion of the first game for DS? I don't know, never got really into Dungeon Keeper 2 but played the hell out of the first one. Does anyone know if it runs on modern systems via Dosbox?

Re: Sega intends to fix Sonic

I think that future Sonic titles will be better. Why? It can't get any worse, can it?

Yeah, I'm lying to myself :D

Re: Star Fox 2 & Star Ocean (in English) on Ebay

it's definitely home made stuff - but it's very well made home-made stuff. It's all about the quality - and that's truly what matters to a lot of collectors - to be able to play the game in English is great, but they also want it to look like the genuine article too :) Personally I'd rather have a ...

Re: Star Fox 2 & Star Ocean (in English) on Ebay

I'm no fan of such auctions. It's just another form of scam for me. If anyone is new to collecting SNES games he will certainly fall for the "ULTRA RARE!!!!!" just to impress others (yeah, there are people like that ;) ). Here in Germany usually a Seiken Densetsu 3 is popping up and goes for about 3...

Shatter (PSN)

So, did anyone else get this yesterday? Downloaded it, played it, loved it. Basically it's a Breakout/Arkanoid-clone with neon graphics. The great thing is, that you have the ability to pull things in or push them out. Depending on the location of your bat, you are able to controll the ball to a cer...

Re: Do you think gaming machines have lost their character?

Yep, the thing with the shops is kinda sad. Luckily I've still got one just around the corner of our office. I buy most of my import-stuff from there. Yep, it might be not as cheap as importing directly. But for me it's just worth it. Talking with the nice chap of the shop who knows about most games...

Re: Monkey Island 1 Special Edition...soon?

Yeah, the good thing with that is, that more people can witness classics like that. So much better than most of the newly released Adventures. Even if I don't like the new art: The writing and the puzzles are still as brilliant as ever :D

Re: Monkey Island 1 Special Edition...soon?

Because I still have the original on disk :D And yep, I agree that the idea with the seamless switching between old and new is neat. But before the first screens I really hoped, they would use another artstyle. Perhaps more like Curse of Monkey Island. And yeah, I'm nagging, but I really hope, Lucas...

Re: Monkey Island 1 Special Edition...soon?

Played the demo and don't know... I really can't stand the new art. Most of the backgrounds look great, yeah. But the character-design....ugh. Even the Design of the Telltale game is better than that. I really hope that Indy doesn't get the same treatment...
