Crikey! My perception is that they were barely an improvement on VHS quality. I guess its part of the...

Re: Your fave 5th gen console

The problem with the CD32 is that it fell between to two stools... The CD32 was just a stool full stop! Talking of stools, I'm going to vote for the Jaguar purely for nostalgia reasons, cos I had one. Probably the most expensive thing I ever had for Christmas when I was a kid. God bless my mum for ...

Re: Is the PSP retro?

I really don't know why some people get so wound up by the 'what is retro' debate. Well, you had better take a long hard look in the mirror sunshine!.... ..Although My point is, I'm happy to read about any games on any platforms - the real question is balance. As long as the main focus (for now) st...

Out of interest, have you tried any Neo Geo emulators on the Wii? Or on the OUYA too for that matter (staying on topic :wink: )

Anything newer than Colossus Mark 2 is NOT retro!

Re: Wan*ers of the World Cup!

Gary Lineker- for general all round smarminess. Glen Hoddle - for his transparent self-promotion on ITV as the future England manager. Both of these guys can do what they want for me as they were absolutely sh!t hot players. They don't owe anyone anything (Except maybe Hoddle for dropping Gazza in ...

Re: What games did it for you at E3?

There's only one game in that list for me and its Doom.
Seeing the Cyber Demon in the recent teaser trailer, holy crap! I can't wait to see this game!

I freaking love Doom!
