I wasnt even aware of the PC Engine best collections - I am intrigued as I've always wanted to get into the PC Engine thang - but they a bit pricey for 3 or 4 old games per UMD. It's funny, but PSP is far stronger on retro it seems than new games. (agree with the above about DVD SET - this sort of s...

Best PSP retro?

decided to dust of the PSP for some mobile retro fun.

What does everyone think of:

castlevania X?
Mega Man?
Mega Man Hunter x?
Gradius collection?

I'll probably get 2 or 3 from the list

Mastertronics 'The Last V8' - mainly as I could never get around the second bend and always wondered what the rest of the game was like.... :wink:

of course at some point retroinspection will have coverered all the major platforms - there's only a finite amout of them - at that point I suspect RG will have to look at machines like archimedes etc

Personally I love obscure micros and consoles - but I realise they're not everyones cup of tea.

Unboxed my N64 at the weekend to give it a rare whirl.

Graphics blurs aside, I still have to say it doesnt give me the retro thrill of my SNES or NES - I think all the consoles hailing from the period of the transition from 2d to 3d were slight disappointments.

it appears to me that RG needs a sort of mini retrointrospection feature to cover lesser machine - especially all those 8 bits like memotech, enterprise etc. maybe just a 1 page item per issue on these lesser machines.

Is this Captain America on the NES? If it is, then sadly I sort of liked it in a sub sub mega man-ish way
