Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

I appreciated the postmortem on Renegade 3 but I would have liked it to have been a bit more detailed and for it to have ended in a kicking.

I'd also have asked him if it was revenge for the pisspoor job Mike Lamb did on the last two levels of their Combat School conversion.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I just watched Black Panther.

So why did this get described as being one of the best films of last year?

It's too long, full of dreadful CGI, entirely formulaic and it basically looks like a videogame for the whole thing. Absolutely blaverage.

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

As a kid if I was faced with an arcade I'd put 10p in every machine and never get good at any of them. The ones I really liked I'm still awful at. Kung Fu Master and Mr Do's Castle I totally suck at. I did get to put in some time with Bomb Jack and I was okay at that I suppose. In recent years I've ...

Re: PlayStation game banned

Yeah, but as I said it's not really like that. Just because these things exist in Japan doesn't mean that everyone there is into them, and I'm sure you wouldn't like it if the culture of the English speaking world was judged entirely by its most extreme pr0n, because that's basically what you're do...

Re: PlayStation game banned

That's rather unfair on the Japanese as this sort of material, while legal and tolerated there, sells to a very niche audience and the same goes for most of the other notoriously weird stuff. Anyone with first hand experience can tell you that the vast majority of people in the country are squeaky ...

Re: Your fave FPS series

Going to have to go with Far Cry I guess.

1 was great. I hated 2. 3 and 4 were solid. Primal was criminally dull. 5 is ace.

My fave FPS ever is Unreal Tournament but the series as a whole did nothing for me.

Re: Discuss: Spectrum vs Amstrad Gaming

With the Speccy I kind of get the impression that if you were a fan as a kid, you're a fan for life. Plus it really benefited from having Crash and Your Sinclair that gave it a cult appeal even though it had tons of mass appeal at the time. Also, being the underdog (technically) affected that too. A...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Personally I'm not too fussed about 1080p, nevermind 4K, 720p looks just fine to me, though my TV isn't massive. I wouldn't reject the Switch in favour of the PS4 or Xbox One over graphics because the Switch exclusives are important to me, playing whatever happens to be exclusive on those systems i...

Re: The Greatest Games Systems Of All Time

Why is the NES even on that list? Let alone above the Speccy.

Atari 2600 is trash.

Re: PlayStation game banned

Too little too late IMO. There are WAY too many titles out there that have been doing this for years, this is just one game and it's probably not even the worst offender, the whole Anime art style has been sexualising young characters for decades. This. The Japanese have a baffling obsession with t...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I got Pacman Championship Edition 2 for a few bucks on Steam, usually cant go wrong with Pacman, but I hated it! It was like playing Pacman on bad drugs, just really really didn't like it' at all. Whereas the first Championship Edition I didn't mind, I think for me the second strays off course from...
