Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 163

Dodgy printing in some of the last pages of mine - the colours are mis-aligned on maybe 8 pages towards the back. Mine had some bad printing on a few pages, too. It doesn't normally happen. Did you get it on the last page ( Cho Aniki endgame), and the right-hand half of the Mercenary spread? It's n...

Re: LOZ - Twilight Princess

This is probably my favourite Zelda game. I love being able to aim with the remote. Admittedly anything other than the A and trigger buttons are a pain to use in any Wii game. But I think it's worth it. The biggest flaw I think is the training sequences in the village at the start just go on for far...

Re: Genuinely funny moments in games

Probably the biggest laughs in gaming are seeing people dying in stupid ways, flukes or accidents in multiplayer games. Unfortunately I find most gags in RPGs and point-and-click adventures like Discworld and Monkey Island absolutely ruined by the painfully slow delivery of the animations and text. ...

Re: From THe Forum - Favourite Survival horror game

Resident Evil 4 on the Wii, using the remote to target and shoot enemies. It's what the RE: Gun Survivor games should have been like to play. The guy who takes your head off with a chainsaw is genuinely the first decent scare I'd seen in a game since the original Resident Evil 's dogs and frogs. Th...

Re: Genuinely funny moments in games

The cut-scenes in the LEGO Star Wars games that are basically taking the p*ss are really funny. Such as the young Obi-Wan shaking his lightsabre as if the batteries are flat. Also some in-game things, like finding the 'Indiana Jones hat dispenser' for Han Solo, and finding that the 'secondary fire' ...

Re: Soldiers - the ones you eat with eggs

Not toasting the bread first just seems insane.
I have had some crumpets that cut into finger-sized pieces which was quite good, but normally, toast.
I do have a double-egg-cup, but generally eating up the white from more than one soft boiled egg makes me feel ill.

Re: The Mummy (2017) Trailer

The Ewok movies are just fairy-stories. In reality the Ewok race was wiped out by the radiation and rains of debris that started in the months following the destruction of the second Death Star. They renounced C3PO and stopped eating human flesh, but it was too little, too late.

Re: The Mummy (2017) Trailer

I quite liked Tomb of the Dragon Emperor , with the big skeleton army scrap at the end. It bugs me this labelling of things as a 'trilogy' though, just because there happens to be three films. It's all over the place on Christmas special DVD bundle packs. Apparently that awful alien-world Predator f...

Re: Your Proudest Gaming Achievement?

Looping Manic Miner for the first time. Since I can do it leaving as many lives as I started with (if not more) and it doesn't get any harder next time around, how many times you can loop it is presumably dependent on how long you can stay awake. Come to think of it, since it animates your remaining...

Re: The Annual Christmas Film Thread!

I might try her with Gremlins. Not sure if she's old enough at 3, but she adores Labyrinth following a random showing I gave one weekend. She's not quite sure how to deal with scary stuff - she's glued to it, declares she doesn't like it later, but then wants to watch again. Well it was rated 15 wh...

Re: The Annual Christmas Film Thread!

Some I'll give a miss - It's a Wonderful Life ; I'd never actually seen it so sought it out on DVD a few years ago. It's so ruddy long though. I guess it needs some build-up to a suicide attempt, but you could just watch the last third of it and not miss anything. And exactly the opposite with Chris...
