Abandonware feature.

Not sure if it's been done before but I'd love a full feature on Abandonware. Not just a list of some great games you can now get for gratis, but a full on feature about it, especially as it'd be classed as automatically retro. Just think of all those sexy free SSL pc games they could so screenshots...

Re: Should I get a PS3?

PS3 emu seems pretty choppy at the best of times. Just keep your PS2 ready and you'll not be disappointed. :wink:

Re: What games have you given up on recently?

Bioshock actually. Straight FPS with RPG pretensions. It should have been one or the other. Preferably an RPG in my book.

Re: BBC Click

Click often gets it wrong in quite annoying little ways, but it's usually a good source of newbie info. Those in the know can usually see the small factual errors and let them slide.

They were too busy falling over themselves to prevent negative press. Good job Mortal Kombat and Jack Thompson never...

Re: New Versus Old - Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Super Mario 64
