Re: Bomb Jack

Gotta love the CPC. I was an Amstrad user and BJ isn't a bad game, I just didn't personally like it. It was too frustrating. I never felt I had enough control of the character after jumping. So meh it is. For me anyway. BJ was always a good game... then I got married and they stopped! :oops: :lol: ...

Re: DOOM - 20 years on and still going strong

I have still yet to find a multiplayer game online on the PSN Doom Classic Complete!!! Booo! But on the plus side I have been playing Skulltag on PC, which is fantastic! I have been trawling through the very best modifications to finish off (finally) part 2 of a Doom Special feature I wrote a few we...

Games that give you eye strain

I am playing the new Runner 2 Bit.Trip presents blah blah blah game and it is seriously doing my eyes in. I found it the same with the original, but not this bad. I come away from a session on it feeling slightly dizzy. It's especially annoying as I really enjoy it. I find the way it scrolls is visu...

Re: Blogs

I've started a new series on my one, looking at as many "alternative"/"adult"/"Viz-like" comics that I can get my hands on. For the six people in the world who might be vaguely interested in that sort of thing, the first one's a little look at one that's called Duck Soup: http://twoheadedthingies.b...

Re: Bradford 'Batman' hands in suspect to Police.

So lame. The guy could at least have made an effort to look like the Dark Knight if he was planning to do this - he must have known it would make the papers. Instead he looks like a sad old fatso in a cheap rented batman costume. A missed opportunity. Maybe I will go out tonight, dressed as Rorschac...

Re: Bomb Jack

An absolute classic coin-op that still plays as well as it always has, and still manages to raise a smile thanks to its colourful visuals and catchy tunes. EDITED Chiptune, could you PLEASE start using your blog thread to promote your blogs. Resurrecting a thread from 2007 is fine if you have someth...

Re: From the forum issue 114 Platformers

Ah, the usual blog backlash from morons who haven't even read it. I laugh at your ignorance. :lol: In fact I laugh at the same people who desperately clutch at Chuckie Egg and other ancient gubbins as the last, best hope for gaming.. too stubborn to look at them without rose tinted spectacles. Let's...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 113 - Feedback Thread

As usual I enjoyed the issue, and still have a few cool looking articles to read (Planescape Torment being one). I will leave my opinions here, despite the fact that any negativity towards the magazine, even with constructive criticism, often leads to hostile responses from certain parties. Anyway.....

Re: From the forum issue 114 Platformers

Sigh.. the usually shockingly predictable and crap answers from certain people.. Chuckie Egg.. Manic Miner??? Jesus. I think some some people here haven't played any games since they were a spotty oik, keeping the past in some sort of ludicrously rose tinted protective bubble in their mind. Anyone w...
