Re: Vectrex - Advice needed

i must say that i think the vectrex is an ace machine in its own quirky way. i bought one from a bloke on gumtree leeds for 50 quid with about 7 games and i love it. It sat on my dining table for about 3 months and everyday my 2 year old daughter would love to watch me play it, she also found it hil...

Re: Retro Asteroids Competition to Win a PRS Guitar & Amp

forgot to mention that the single is called "End of Level Boss" too and their logo is based on the sega one too.
I keep trying to persuade them to do a metal reworking of Turrican 2 but to no avail

Re: Final Fight HD remake

thats great news, final fight is one of my favourite arcade games of all time, used to play it all the time in my local video shop. Would be great if they decided to update some of their other side scrollers too like captain commando, the punisher and cadillacs and dinosaurs. Just hope they dont go ...

Re: saturn shooters help

i agree completely, they do look very impressive, much better than the art on european and american games, normal jewel cases are also sooo much better than the awful cardboard and plastic brit ones (the discs always fall out of those). ps - can i have your collection please, it would make my xmas :D

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

yeah it does seem a bit unfair nowadays, i remember playing halo 3 online when it first came out and it wouldnt let you play against anyone with a much higher level than you until you had gotten to a certain level yourself. seems that this isnt implemented in cod. just have to put up with being shot...

Re: saturn shooters help

thanks for the game recommendations, will have a hunt about on ebay now and see what i can get, the racketboy site with the shmups list on there is excellent too. sexy parodius? sounds even more bizarre than the original too, think that is one i will have to hunt out. I've actually owned a saturn si...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

completed modern warfare 2 story mode. Is a very slick game, and one of the only games that i have played recently to make me shout at the tv during a cutscene. im a bit crap on line though, it always seems to match me up with people at a massively higher rank than me. the last game i played online ...
