Re: The Dreamcast is Overrated

I dont think the DC is overated at all, i bought one in 08 and its a system that impressed me from the start, although i do lament that it didn't get the scope in its games library as other systems have had. There are a fair few action, action/adventure, RPG's in the western library, but there are n...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Part of the problem is a lot of the feedback is the same people complaining every month about the same things - particularly, it seems to be people saying that a machine or game has had too much coverage. That kind of feedback should never be in a monthly feedback thread, if it was an actual proble...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

I do agree its the feedback thread so there should be ideally good/bad feedback. If all feedback was 'the mags perfect, no changes needed' then nothing will ever improve/get better. But there is a way to post feedback, some people seem to be so negative its difficult to take what they say seriously...

Re: Why did the Game Boy "kill" the competition?

Lets not speak of that monstrosity that was the Game Gear, worst system I ever had. It ate batteries like they were going out of fashion to the point where in the end I only used it with the mains adaptor, and it was a heavy brick to. I also thought at the time it was pointless playing on it when I ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

I agree, it's important (although not necessary) to have the perspective of people who grew up with the games and systems. Personally, if I know that an article has been written by someone far too young to have experienced the subject first time around then it becomes less credible. I know it's pos...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Pointing out the odd mistake, moaning about why X wasn't featured in an article or moaning about X being covered before and claiming there is no new content etc is not constructive feedback. Suggesting alternative ideas on how to present things, asking for items to be featured etc IS constructive f...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Darran normally does check these threads and will respond, but he's been out since last Monday for health reasons and isn't expected to return to work until the middle of the month at the very earliest. Speaking from personal exp.here, but the response from yourself and Mikeb.to my feedback this mo...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

For anyone who is interested i brought up the same issues about articles on the same old games, series and developer appearing in RG time and again in the feedback thread for issue 107, not sure if Darren responds to feedback any more, but you can read his responses to the issue in that thread.

Re: Fund manager wants Nintendo

I wish my name was Chiptune, thats pretty cool :D I personally don't think mobile phone gaming is going to destroy console gaming, but if you believe the analysts about Nintendo you have to buy what they say about gaming in general... I honestly dont believe anything or even listen to what analysts...

Re: What is wrong with a '7/10' review score?

If you go back as far as the Amiga days, you'll find a degree of conflict between reviewers on the same magazines.Thinking of likes of C.U Amiga where Core's Skeleton Crew recived a very respectible 83% when reviewd on the A1200 by mags editor, then next month it's the turn of the CD32 version, dif...

Re: Fund manager wants Nintendo

it's very clear that a huge swathe of the core market (girls, young children, housewives) for Nintendo have jumped from the wii onto the mobile gaming platforms, they certainly aren't buying into the wii u, so you can see why the big investors in Nintendo want them to chase this "lost" revenue stre...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 126

Got my copy today, this issue is packed with good stuff, think i'll read the Wonderswan article first, always wondered about that system.

Good to see a follow up on the Ellite debacle, strange though, Lost Dragons and part of my post have be edited together from the poll thread.
