Re: Screenshot challenge.

Vinnie Vole's Existential Nightmare

Although originally a joke from Ashen's Tech Dump some people have actually made it into a real game :lol:

There's a clue in the filename :wink:

Re: Name that sequel you've always wanted.

Point Blank . Yes, you can see they were out of ideas by the third game, and the DS version's stages are a (criminally small) selection of stages from the other games, but a more comprehensive 'best of' game for the Wii would seem an obvious move to me. Shame it seems to be too late for the series....

Re: Dreamshooting - A brief guide to Dreamcast shmups [Artic

I understand it's a brief guide, but the text for Triggerheart Exelica and Under Defeat barely talk about how they play. I have no experience with Under Defeat (it's got some sort of 'change-the-angle-of-your-fire' system, hasn't it?) but the grappling hook in THE is surely worth mentioning.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

It seems my local Gamestation is determined to offload its PS1/PS2/GC/Xbox stuff by any means, as 3 for 10/3 for 5 has returned- lots of rubbish, obviously, but I found Silent Bomber (PS1), Metroid Prime (GC) and, um, Celebrity Deathmatch (PS2) as part of 3 for £5 (all except CB had the manual).

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

having Sentinel as a back up can be incredibly handy though usually I leave him as a last resort I saw this happen the other night. Despite my best efforts to take him out early with snapbacks, an online match ended with Solo X-Factor Haggar (me) versus Solo X-Factor Sentinel There were no survivor...

Re: So when did this forum go all modern?

I too am amazed the decision was made so quickly (and that the new sub-forum's name has already changed, not 24 hours in) but I really don't mind. We have separated retro/modern forums over at RetroCollect and it works fine (although they were like that from the start). Still, the outcry (from all s...

Well this is supposed to be Strider and Frank West confirmed for DLC via screenshot but look below. (EDIT- Hahaha, I originally said it 'certainly looks real' in this post, I am a moron- it's fake of course it is, the Strider on show is actually this artwork manipulated a bit . Good thing no-one ac...

Re: My Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Review

He could work in a fighter, ever play the Japanese version of Marvel Super Heroes Vs SF where they had the bonus character Norimaru? He was one hell of a weird character but if he works in a fighter PW could as well. I forgot about Norimaro, despite playing MSHVSF the other day! I still think it'd ...

I get the feeling that I'm the only person that loves Marvel Vs Capcom 3 here :lol: I do as well :lol: I've been playing it on-and-off, I just need to figure out a decent online team. Spencer is definitely my main character (great assist, he can be anywhere on screen in a second, and Bionic Arm is ...

Re: Favorite obscure game?

Momoko 120%. A pseudo-run-and-gun with almost offensively bright graphics, a strict time limit and lots of stuff trying to kill you. It's a great challenge, and if it didn't have the elevator glitch it would be fantastic.

Re: Pokémon: Ever Caught 'Em All?

Once, in Blue. I took my time (the in-game clock had 250 hours on it by the end) and my Hall of Fame was indecipherable (thanks, Missingno.) but I caught them all. Once. Got close on Gold but then my save battery died, taking every decent Pokémon I ever had with it (I transferred my Blue team over a...

Re: In the Hunt

If you like the style of the graphics also check out Undercover Cops on MAME by the same guys. Keep an eye out for the Bydo boss from rtype on the tvs :) And Gunforce II, which might as well be a prototype for Metal Slug. Same stock sound effects and everything. In the Hunt is one of those games I ...

Re: Deathsmiles on 360 getting a PAL release..

I've watched a few high score vids and, as I suspected, there is some sort of bomb trick. You use your bomb as the power shot is almost out and somehow, in certain places, get straight back up to 1000 again. I tried to copy it a few times last night but it wasn't working. Not sure if there's a spec...
