Re: Video game documentaries?

just about to watch "Ecstasy Of Order - The Tetris Masters" again. I think after The King Of Kong this could be my second favourite video game documentary. Will see what I think, after I watch it again. :)

Re: Zzap64 Annual kickstarter now open

Pin badges... there are loads of great perks, but bloody pin badges really don't do it for me. I'd love to be 13 again, but I am in my late 40's and my kids think I'm strange enough already. :lol: true, true, but the perks further up look good, specifically the little c64 book, that sounds good. Bu...

Re: Coleco Evolved

hmmm.. you know what, I had to click on this because Ive always loved the idea of mini arcade tabletops, and they always looked better than they played, and you know, if there was a selection of say three or 5 classics I might just have backed this. Classics perhaps with an arrangement option so you...

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

I love DK, although I'm pretty crap at it. Must give it another go. Games I tended to go well at were Elevator Action, Pooyan, Gyruss :) Ive got to the point on DK where its more a matter of endurance, I wanted to see what a kill screen was like so I put cheats on for the first time on mame and pla...

Re: Area's of games you could never get past

*I spent a hell of a lot of my childhood time trying to work out the bit in Hitchhikers Guide where you have to get the babel fish. And you thought you were getting so close.. until you give up and decades later when you read the walkthrough and realised there were still even more steps you would ha...

Re: Technical Marvels!

Yes some programmers used such ingenious techniques, and they kind of had to back in the day. I remember reading only a few days ago - and have forgotten which programmer and system it was - but they used all the monitor ram up to speed up the game.. or get more sprites or something, was it the C64?...

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

Donkey Kong is such a great one because with persistence you get rewarded, and keep getting rewarded. I actually hated it until I saw King of Kong and then thought what the heck I'll give it another shot and since then have found its one of my very favourite arcade games, it becomes so addictive. On...

Virtua Striker 2. I won the championship on my second go, it was the first arcade game that I really clicked with immediately.

Re: Games that are better on inferior hardware

Salamander on the C64 in my opinion beats even the arcade, in terms of playability and soundtrack. The graphics on the arcade win, but I definitely believe the C64 trumps the arcade version!
