Re: Bring back games master tv show, your memories? Or did u

On a side note, dd anyone go to Gamesmaster Live at the NEC in '92? Me and my mate went and I remember the premier of Sonic 2, a showcase of the Super Scope, a trailer full of freeplay Street Fighter 2 clone/hack machines with some variations I've not seen since then even in MAME, and the icing on t...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

I completed Resident Evil 4 on the Wii this week. Whilst this is a bit new compared to other games, and the fact it's pretty easy when you've played it through before (on Gamecube back in 2004), it's a major accomplishment and stepping stone for me. You see, I had a stroke in 2007 that took away mos...

Re: Nintendo 3DS UK Pricing/Release Confirmed?

Worldwide release dates are becoming more common now with the advent of an easily accessible global marketplace, as the companies don't want to lose out profits to grey importers who meet the needs of impatient tech freaks. At very least, the gap between region releases is shrinking so with a March ...

Re: Games are too similar these days

It's all gone a bit wrong with games these days in my opinion. I agree that games have to evolve and different genres will rule in different years, and I also agree that even classic games tended to copy styles and themes from each other to cash in (think of all the Space Invader clones and Maze cha...

R3play 2 - any news yet?

Following my attendance at last year's R3play show I'm planning to attend a few more shows and do a bit more networking this year, but the biggie of course is R3play 2. Last year's had a big media stir and we got plenty of advance notice (it was around the start of Feb Dave Moore spoke to me about i...

Re: R3PLAY Photos, Videos, Blogs etc.

A lot of my friends and those from some of the arcade forums who unfortunately missed the show have been eagerly awaiting the 'official video' to get a proper feel of everything the show offered. Is there still going to be an official video, who is doing what and how/when is it going to be released?...

Re: R3PLAY 2 - WTF IS GOIN ON??

A huge amount of promotion was done around Blackpool, with local businesses, large local employers, local media etc. I would estimate that the larger portion of people attending this event were local, and probably haven't even heard of this forum, retro gamer magazine or even retro gaming as a conc...

Re: R3PLAY 2 - WTF IS GOIN ON??

Hi all; this is Craig from Turnarcades and although I'm not a forum regular, I've been tracking this forum for a while both before and after the R3play event as I come from a very different side of the retro gaming spectrum and wanted to analyse what a broader range of visitors thought of the show. ...

Re: MAME Arcade Cabs

I know someone who bought a Turnarcades Mame PC (I rebuilt and configured his CP for him). Everything was present and correct but the PC was woefully underspecced, (was an old reclaimed office PC) for the version of the emulator they had running on it, making games like SFII run like a slideshow.
