Re: horrible music

My name is Knuckles Unlike Sonic I don't chuckle I'd rather flex my muscles I prefer the heartfelt, soulful lyrics* from Pumpkin Hill's song in Sonic Adventure 2: This probably seems crazy, crazy, a graveyard theory, A ghost tried to approach me and got leery. Ask him a question and he vanished in ...

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

Screwattack has compiled some pre fight dialogue for the characters: http://screwattack.com/videos/MvC3-Smack-Talkin-Teams My favourite is Iron Man/Captain America: "This armour knows your next move before you do, Steve." Also, apparently a stream on Capcom-Unity accidentally revealed one of the Ma...

Re: ps2 collecting

^ It isn't this one is it? To be fair to Midas, they published some decent stuff on the PS1 (Cleopatra Fortune and Starsweep are excellent puzzlers) and Phoenix- of all people- published Sonic Wings Special on the PS1! On the subject of budget publishers, I've heard the PS2 games from blast! are hor...

Re: ps2 collecting

If I had the spare time, I'd be tempted to do a Youtube channel dedicated to cataloguing all these 505/Midas/Essential Games/Phonix obscurities so that there was some sort of resource available. Yeah, these games really need documenting just to sort out which ones exist and which ones don't. Althou...

Re: ps2 collecting

Does anybody know of any places online to find gameplay videos of 505 games like Street Boyz and Hard Knock High ? Just interested to see what they're like but even Youtube seems to fail me. In the case of the Simple 2000 games, it sometimes (but not always) helps to search for their Japanese title...

Re: Dreamcast Collection - your thoughts

What gets me is that they had a teasing announcement with no games mentioned, quoted below because it's ridiculous in hindsight: We actually have a Dreamcast collection coming out soon. We are looking to bring some of the old Dreamcast games to market digitally and packaged. The titles are still to ...

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

Besides the N-Gage lot further above I already received these recently: Hey, Graffiti Kingdom, very nice! It's a bit rough around the edges, but it's to be expected since it lets you draw your own characters. Although it may have felt rough only because every character I made ended up hobbling abou...

Re: Xbox Live Indie Games

Astroman is an interesting one- a slower-paced take on Metroid, although I haven't got very far in it. Beware that it's 240 points, though.

Also these three Alpha Secret Base games are worth a look, especially Kaiten/Ura Kaiten Patissier.

Finally, this thread has plenty of recommendations.

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

I think one of the main draws for online in my case is that none of my friends that live near me are interested in fighters or aren't good at them so I find more satisfaction at beating a tough online opponent than beating one of my friends at the game! This is my main reason for trying this whole ...

Going to join in with the 'nice SFC games' thing, Shinobi, especially Rushing Beat Shura. Isn't that SFC game next to Michigan supposed to be good as well? (Ive completely forogtten its name, something to do with umbrellas?)

Re: Worst games mags

Nintendo Official Mag - '98-2000, became juvenile, fanboyish, immature, badly written garbage. Oh man, I remember when that happened. It was physically painful to read, mostly because of all the involuntary cringing. Switched over to N64 Magazine sharpish... Around that time there was also Nintendo...

Re: Marvel Vs Capcom 3 coming to 360

The Fantastic 4 had slots in the character roster initially. By the sounds of what Capcom said during interviews etc. Torch was the last one to get dropped due to him using up to much RAM :? Constantly being on fire or something like that... What, really? I've always wondered why the Fantastic Four...
