Engaged!

For those of you that didn't see the news this weekend on Facebook (or don't use it) I'm pleased to announce that after more than ten years of being together I finally asked my long-suffering girlfriend Anna to marry me. The proposal took place in Philadelphia outside the Art Museum, just a few doze...

USA Arcade videos (inc Funspot, Barcade and more)

Thought I'd start a thread for all the arcade videos I took whilst in the USA recently.

First up is coverage of the 15th Annual Funspot Classic Gaming Tournament. It's quite long but hopefully not boring!

Re: Your Top 3 Movie-Based Games?

Nope, I sincerely liked it. The AI in that game was atrocious/non-existent! You would be hidden behind a piece of wall no more than 3ft high and 6ft wide with a T-1000 the other side, and it would just lurch backwards and forwards firing at the wall, never thinking about coming round the other side...

Re: Your Top 3 Movie-Based Games?

3. Terminator Salvation I hope you're not talking about the PS3/XBOX game, which was only good for the fact that it was an incredibly easy Platinum trophy! My top 3 would be: 1. Star Wars (arcade, the vector one) 2. Robocop (arcade) 3. Ghostbusters (C64 for nostalgia, but the SMS version is actuall...

You can download the entire first episode for free at the moment, so try before you buy! ;)

Re: RG forum readers "Best ever retro console"

Three votes per person doesn't relaly make it 'best ever' and is going to skew the results a bit, but I went for the 2600, Megadrive and Neo Geo.

If I'd had only one vote it would have been the Megadrive.

Re: What's the last thing you bought from PSN or Xbox Live?

Last two purchases from PSN (on the same day) were Bentley's Hackpack and Voltron, mainly becasue they were less than £2 each. I also picked up the first episode of The Walking Dead last week but that was free... ;)

Re: a decade only

The 80's for me, without doubt. The golden age of arcade gaming; the best games for the Atari 2600; the BBC Micro and C64; the Amiga, NES, Master System, PC-Engine and even a couple of early years of the Megadrive (in Japan at least!) I love the depth of current (and last) gen games but if I had to ...

Re: Your favourite 16-bit platformer

Although I acknowledge that Sonic 2 is the better game, my favourite 16-bit platformer would have to be the original Sonic on the Megadrive. Too many hours spent playing that in the early 90's! :D

Re: Your favourite 8-bit platformer

Hi guys, please tell us your favourite 8-bit platformer, computer, arcade or console :) I think arcade platformers should have a separate section really as they're not 8-bit (necessarily) but anyway... This era was too full of great platformers to pick just one, so here's one for each type of hardw...

Re: Power Up - My mates kickstarter project

I backed it with a tenner a while ago, purely because the guy lives in Stoke! :D However, I have to say that I have since been very impressed with his dedication to giving someting back to his supporters. Thus far this is the only Kickstarter I've backed that provided daily updates, each of which in...
