some of the voices are hilariously awful... theres an old (clearly meant to be gay) gentleman darts player in a pink shirt in the game who keeps saying "you're paying to look at my beautiful form" when you challenge him to a game of darts... all the kids in shenmue 1 have the most annoying voices ev...

It always struck me as a really really over rated franchise... like metroid it's one of those series I feel I should like but just can't get into.... I have the original game boy game and it's unfair and irritatingly so... Ive played the nes version a lot and found it unfair and irritatingly so and ...

i hacked the plastic away from my megadrive and almost all jap games work on it... to avoid slowdown get a cheap ntsc system like a genesis 3 (which will work with the same tv and power wires that a megadrive 2 does) but make sure your tv can handle ntsc before buying one... I'd recommend curse (jap...

Magical Pop'n and DoReMi Fantasy............. both way better than popful mail (although I agree it is a decent game) unfortunately both of the above are WAY more expensive! DoReMi Fantasy is now available to download from the Wii's Virtual Console service....not ideal, perhaps but probably a lot c...

fatman on the megadrive... which i have only keep because of the unintentionally amusing opening sequence.... otherwise it was unplayable dross of some sort of attempt at a one on one fighter that i turned off after about 35 seconds.... cool world on the snes is like a game set in a world run by the...

popful mail on the snes... obscure classic...

I was dimly aware that this is apparently a cult classic on the U.S. sega cd so I took a punt and bought the super famicom version of it for a few quid and despite the fact that the story and whatnot are in Japanese it's perfectly easy to play through and has been seriously the best game ive played ...

finally tracked down a copy and have to say it was one of my favorites so far. The outrun feature was beyond superb (can't believe you actually managed to get Yu Suzuki) and I liked pretty much everything else especially cannon fodder.... the only problem is now i feel like whizzing away more money ...

article on modded retro consoles?

Sorry if this has been suggested or covered already but i was just thinking an article on modded consoles would be interesting. I have a modded snes and would never go back to a slow regular pal machine now. I am interested in buying a handful of other modded machines but dont know enough some machi...
