Rez, Shenmue 1&2 and Powerstone 2 are a must. House of the Dead 2 and Confidential Mission are two great games that you should be able to pick up reasonably cheap for on ebay. And if you're thinking of getting it to play Jap games, and you liked Ikaruga, Mars Matrix, GigaWing 2 and Borderdown are al...

Ok, so I thought my 360 was being a jerk

My 360's being a plum. It's suddenly decided not to pick up my wireless pads anymore. I've changed the batteries and pressed that small, white 360-scan button on the very top of the pad but i'm getting nothing - just an annoying swirly light show which simply gets me increasingly madder with every r...

We can't disclose that kind of information, for obvious reasons. However; I will say that it's nothing to worry about. Basically, we're just thinking up ways we can encourage the magazine to grow and appeal to more readers, and it just made sense to us to start with those forum users who don’t pic...

Thanks to everyone who's left a comment so far. The response to this particular thread wasn't quite what we had expected - as Sir Clive mentioned, many who have posted sound like they're already readers, but it's not a problem as some good points have been raised. We would really like to use this th...

I visited two stores this weekend and was told in both that the retro section had been ousted. If I get a spare minute I'll fire off a ???? email to Gamestation and see what comes back.

Dudley seems to know quite a bit about Gamestation, maybe he can shed some light on the subject, Duds?

Attention all casual-stroke-non Retro Gamer readers...

Firstly, we appreciate that this should have really gone into our feedback section, but seeing as this area gets the most traffic, it made more sense for us to drop this thread in here. Basically, Darran and I were wondering how many people use the forum but don’t read the magazine. We want to hel...

Yeah, Pitfighter deserves being ripped to shreds. Any game that visually represents your score by how high a man is being lifted on a pallet has to come in for some flack...I'll add it to the potentials.

There will be a Retro Shamer for Load 47 and 48. Like Craig said, we like to chop and change the features around. But it's good to know that it's well liked. Cheers chaps.
