Re: Video game documentaries?

I think the one that blew me away the most way the Tetris players in 'Ecstasy Of Order". Prior to watching that, I thought I was a pretty decent gamer... but that sure set me straight! That was just out of this world.. their reflexes and powers of concentration really are otherworldly, just about.

Re: Video game documentaries?

Get Lamp... I hadn't seen that one, cheers guys, that was a good one. After that I watched the Infocom documentary also by Jason Scott, and I even preferred that one over Get Lamp. Wish I'd kept track of the doco's Ive seen, starting to become forgetful in my older age :P But more often than not I f...

Re: From The Forum Issue 202

Hmm, that's a good one. For me its a split between the City of Lost Heaven in Mafia which immerses you so effectively in another time period, and the amazing sepia-shaded world of Resident Evil 4 of which there is nothing quite like.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 201

loved the issue, so much good stuff. Conan... wow that was a great surprise, just painfully short though, I wish it was an interview twice as long! The Jet Set Willy feature was fantastic, Matthew Smith is such an interesting individual, and a laugh to boot. And as mentioned above by Whazeboo, Fist ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

I want to know what that machine Darran has in his collection that has a coin slot and Outrun running on it... never seen the likes of it before, is it a MAME setup of some kind??

Re: From The Forum Issue 201

Super Mario Land on Gameboy hit that perfect point for me, in terms of playability, lastability and difficulty level, it just got everything right.

Re: Retro Gaming Spotlight: Galaxian

Galaxian was the first arcade game I ever played, it absolutely blew me away. I can still kind of remember the experience, the incredible sounds coming from the machine, the aliens sweeping across the screen in terrifying fashion; I was transfixed after that very first turn, a lifelong love for vide...

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Donkey Kong

DK is a fascinating game - to me, the most rewarding of them all if you persist with it. I, like many others, found it too difficult, could never get off the first screen, couldn't get even near the 7500 'high score' the game initially starts out with and quite frankly, hated it for most of my life....

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Cheers Matt, I mean I am glad there is the ability to 'remedy' the c64 mini but that's my point, why don't they do it in the first place, why not make a truly great joystick - its not like they don't have the ability, and surely the passion shouldn't be waning to undertake such a project in the fir...

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Yeah, the bundled controller with the C64 Mini was a bit of a bust, but luckily it's got off the shelf support for a lot of alternates. Have a look on here, as you may already have something suitable to give it a new lease of life. https://gurce.net/c64mini/hardware_compatibility_lists As for the P...

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

I'm gonna to take a different angle and say the most disappointed I've been in a release in recent times is the PS classic mini console. From initial anticipation and pre ordering, to trepidation as Sony dragged the chain on the title list, to cancelling the preorder, then finding out what you'd ex...

Re: Retro Gamer Review Marks

I still haven't forgiven Darran for the 100% rating for Super Mario Galaxy 2... still waiting for an apology for that one! :D All that horrible jumping about, deserves no more than about 82% in my books. Funnily enough I got SMG-2 based on Darren's review of it, but haven't gotten round to playing ...
