Re: Other people's save files

Yeah, in fairness using an obscure button combo is better than the game just asking you if you want to delete it. One slip on the d-pad and you've blown weeks of hard work. When my then-5-years-old nephew 'accidentally' deleted my save with 92 collected stars from my Mario64 cartridge ('Uncle, what...

Re: TOTAL ANNIHILATION....

I loved every single bit of Total Annihilation. Watching the intro sends chills running down my spine still today and the soundtrack has secured a firm place on my mp3 player a long time ago.

Re: Board game versions of arcade games

I had the PacMan board game too, when I was a kid! I knew of a few others from MB, such as Frogger and Donkey Kong, but I really didn't realise there were so many out there until I saw Stu's picture. Amazing. I definitely look forward to some coverage in the mag. I believe the readers can 'sustain' ...

Re: The best Intellivision games

Intellivision was a great console for multiplayer. Snafu is indeed very funny, but also many of the sport series games were IMHO excellent, in particular Soccer, Hockey and Tennis. I seem to remember that both boxing and basketball games were good enough games too. Mattel games aside, almost anythin...

Re: King's/Space/Police Quest

Space Quest II was the first Sierra adventure game I ever played, back then on my Amiga 500. Although the graphics was a direct port from the PC version (in 16 colours, fortunately) and the sound was just as bad (blip! blop! buuuuzzzzz!...), I was completely blown away by the gameplay. It was a drea...

Re: From the Forum Zelda Love

I haven't played many Zelda games, but those I did, I played them to the very end. Both A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time were in my opinion practically flawless. So I'd pick Ocarina of Time as a favourite for it being able to bring perfection to a further dimension.

Re: From the Forum Issue 90

I really didn't realise the difference untill quite late. Actually when I went through C64 to Amiga 500 in 1988, for me it was just another transition to a 'better system', just as the previous ones from Atari VCS to Coleco to C64 had been like. Then the italian edition of Zzap! (which at the time h...

Re: Mis-information

The counter girl at the local game shop (yes, a girl...) was trying to convince me to buy one of their last 3Dfx Voodoo cards (with reduced prices), so that when in the next couple of months the new 3Dfx Voodoo 2 cards would come out, I could buy one of those too and put the both of them in SLI mode...

Re: Questions for next castaway - Ian 'Psygnosis' Grieve

Thanks chaps - some good lines of inquiry there. I'm speaking to Ian 9pm tomorrow night (tuesday) so get anything you'd like asking in before then. Ta all. So I guess it's too late to ask if we'll ever see a sequel to Drakan. The game was absolutely great, but the ending (actually a 'what will happ...

Re: From the Forum Issue 89

Ah the C64! So many games I grew fond of when I was a young boy! The matter is a bit unfair: it's like asking to choose which is your favourite child... So, which one? Zoids, Forbidden Forest, impossible Mission? G.I.Joe (awesome vs a friend), the Sacred Armour of Antiriad, or perhaps Donald Duck's ...

Re: Favourite Games To P**s About With

James Pond II: Robocod - get some level with jelly in it and start jumping aroung: don don don don don don don! (damn tune sticks in my brain)

Portal: open a portal in the ceiling, then one in the floor. Jump in and try to get as fast as you can.

Re: Any Australians subscribe?

I'm not exactly sure how long it takes in comparison to when its released overseas, i think we get it about 2 weeks later but i am not 100% sure but its a LONG time before that edition hits the stands here. Its most definately worthwhile. I live in Italy and I get the mag approximately at the same ...
