RG has definitely reviewed import games before - particularly obscure Japan-only shooters on the Dreamcast and PS2. I'd be interested in seeing RG's review of Namco Museum Remix too. I reviewed it myself, for gamesTM, a few months ago and was very critical. Darran often disagrees with my opinion, so...

Dreamcast re-release game is mentioned in the news section, where do I get this from though, you can hint if you can't put up on here, only place I can find it is playasia, but that seems to be the original and is pretty pricey. Cheers It was re-released in just one chain of shops in Japan and is u...

Trust me, guys, you'd only be disappointed. The Imagine offices are just like any other office in the country except that you may occasionally see someone playing a game.

Re: Virtuality Article Complaints

Also, Pac Man VR HAS been released, and IS available to buy for the V2, which is still being sold NEW by a certain website who are the official distributors of Virtuality now, said site is also selling the Pacman game. No crap. Seriously. I KNEW IT! There I was telling Darran that I'd SEEN a Pac-Ma...

Is that offer exclusive to re-subscribers or everyone? It's the first I've heard of it.

It's also the original name of IGN.

new weapons That's the most tiring thing about all the worms sequels in my opinion. The weapons list just got too large and repetetive. That's something the XBLA version got right, it went back to basics with a small but focused weapons list. You'll like W:OW2 then. There are new weapons but they'r...

That's up to Darran and a whole bunch of other people who are paid more than me. I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I'd have to disagree. In some games constant improvements work and perfect the experience, in others it's flogging a dead horse and amounts to "just one more money-spinning release". For me, Worms falls into the latter category and I don't think I'll ever buy another game in that series for any pla...

So a few homebrew levels counts as 3 games? That's pushing it a touch I feel. The "homebrew" levels, as you put it, were in addition to all the other extras that were added. You've either never played Lemmings 2 (which is a completely new game with new levels, graphics and lemming types) or you're ...

3 Lemmings games? I make it 1. 2 if you count releasing on multiple formats as games. If one of the 8 million army man games is the sum total of their achievements in 7 years, that's very sad. or fans, it is nowhere near running its course and I think that's reflected in the sales of the game You m...

But it really has just turned into "Team Worms" which is a shame since the series has very clearly run its course. I disagree. The series has "run its course' about as much as Pro Evo and Fifa. It's a competitive game and each sequel adds valuable refinements and updates in much the same way as any...

Team 17 games released 1991-1995 (year Worms released) 26 Team 17 games released 1996-on 8 (excludes Worms games) So that's 26 games in 5 years - then Worms comes along - then 8 games in 11 years But also between 1996-2007 we've had 11 more Worms games So I think that Dudley has a point there .
