Re: Your Favourite Gaming Quotes

Civ V is full of great quotes, but i'm probably cheating as they're just citations. But still, my favourites are:

"To achieve great things only two things are needed: A plan and not enough time"

“We only live to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting”

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 123

I didn't even knew Salamander, but the cover looks fantastic. I also agree that the other options were very inferior, even looking amateurish.

But yes, a Cinemaware cover would have been tops.

Re: From the forum issue 124 - Favourite Activision game

Hunter. Awesome GTA clone before GTA even existed. Besides, did any of those games let you "drive" a windsurf board?

How could that game fit on one disk is a mystery.

Re: Greatest consoles of all time

Just to add my personal experience: Here in Portugal there were more kids with the Master System than with the NES, but it wasn't much of a big difference. The Megadrive-SNES relation on the other way was totally in favour of the Sega machine. I never met anyone with a SNES, and now that i'm trying ...

Re: Best Amiga Arcade Conversions

For me it has to be Rodland. I even preferred it to the Arcade. As for the rest, there were many good ones, even though they weren't arcade perfect like many magazines at the time liked to say. For me, the best of these are Rainbow Islands, Toki and Super Off-Road. EDIT: Oh, and Pang, or course. Don...

Re: Greatest consoles of all time

5 points - Nintendo DS. It rekindled the interest in simpler and more old-school games when everyone was obsessed with 3d and "cinematic" experiences. 4 points - Gamecube. Such a pretty console without any gimmicks and some of the best games of all time: Wind Waker, Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4...

Re: How much last gen stuff is too much?

My main beef with covering last generation is that many of those kind of games are the antithesis of what is "retro". It's all about what games are covered, not when they were made. I can understand the inclusion of Viewtiful Joe, but not Vice City for example.

Re: From the forum Issue 121

Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines It's a glimpse of what video games might have been. Great characters, some of the best voice acting in a video game, interesting and mature setting and lots of choices and consequences. The fact that it made Troika go under is one of the biggest tragedies in video...

Re: From the forum issue 116 Best LucasArts game

Loom. It was my first and still my favorite. Absolute superb music and atmosphere. I still think the Amiga version looks better than the garish VGA version. It seemed like the programmers didn't know what to do with all the extra colours.

Re: From the forum issue 117 Best Master System game

Phantasy Star. It looked better than many Megadrive games and it was truly epic.

I bought it for my long forgotten Master System after my Amiga broke and before i bought my first PC. It was around 94 and even then it impressed me a lot.

Re: The RGF Shmup League - Season #3: Guwange

I'll probably skip this week. For me one of the joys of the shmup genre is watching numbers going up and seeing previous records broken. Having to translate scores kinda negates that feeling.

The game is excellent though.

Are there any non-japanese roms of this one?

I can't understand what going on and there isn't even time for a snapshot of the score before the continue screen

Re: From the forum question for issue 64

Painkiller. This kind of Robotron/Smash TV meet FPS kind of games should be done more often. This one has amazing playbility, looks great, and has some depth to it.
