Re: Where did you get yours?

My brother had a 16k ZX Spectrum which I believe was bought in The Micro Shop in Great Yarmouth. He later had it upgraded to 48k at the same place. I believe my C64 came from Comet. They used to have some pretty good deals. My NES (TMNT edition!) came from either Dixons or Comet I think. My Gameboy...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Would CrashTR really cost that much? And the potential to bring more fans to the series. Perhaps they are embarrassed by how basic they look by today's standards. Either way, those who really want to play them will hack the machine, so why not earn a few quid and keep in Sony's good books. You HAVE ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

What's THE game that put the PS 1 on the map? The one game that helped to kick-start the 'casual gamer scene' and blurred the lines between video games and pop culture? The game that brought the video game console back in to the living room? The one game - above all others - that defined the PS1 and...

Re: Five Celebritys Id Like To See Appear In Video Games

Decent voice actors are always welcome. Off the top of my head Paul Darrow, Tom Baker, Bruce Campbell, Jon Pertwee, Tony Robinson and Eric Idle have all done voice acting for videogames. It really does make a difference; the new Monkey Island games put me off for the voice acting.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Some games that probably cost Sony next to nothing to acquire, plus a number of 'first in the series' games to tempt people to get later titles. Major surprises for me are lack of Crash and Tomb Raider, and a real shame RE2, Parrappa and no footy game. As for Sony bringing out more mini consoles wit...

Re: N64 mini pix leaked

Sadly, it won't be complete without Goldeneye & Perfect Dark in my opinion. Would they even play that well? Goldeneye is pretty rough to play these days, or is that just down to the original hardware? Perfect Dark got a "HD remaster" on Xbox 360 (also included in Rare Collection for XBO) and it loo...

Re: N64 mini pix leaked

Be very surprised if it's genuine. Mini GB for next year, then N64 year after that. Nintendo don't need to pay a third party publisher that they have no affiliation with to put any of their games on it. Half a dozen Rare titles (probably Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, Blast Corps, Banjo Kazooie, Jet Force...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Would it be dificult for RG to give subscribers the choice of two covers? Maybe with a vote on the website, and/or a poll on social networking sites? I don't see any detriment here, short of a cover designer having to come up with more than one design; but then again surely they do this anyway and a...

How did the idea for iMuse come about and did it end up being all you expected it to be? (The music for MI2 is awesome btw).

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Toast of London series 1-3. Some really funny moments and some great slapstick stuff but watching it all together shows that each episode pretty much follows the same beats. To be fair most sitcoms do. In a way it's what makes them successful; you pretty much know what's coming butnot exactly how. ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

The thing is that many of these will be sold on nostalgia alone. By the time punters realise that actually it doesn't look or play quite how they remember , it will be too late. Still nice to have a cool looking mini PS1tucked under the telly.

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

It's one thing to declare that roms are illegal, or for a company not to give permission for free access, and another to actively pursue those who host the roms. Can you blame a company for wanting to stop others from giving their stuff away free - especially when that company is still selling it? O...
