Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

I'm going through an "iconic Sci-Fi" phase so have Ringworld & Hyperion coming from eBay.

Re: games where the original was best

I agree with Soldier of Fortune . SoF made the basic pistol fun, though there would be almost no ammo after the second or third mission IIRC.

Agree with Halo , too. I just couldn't get as enthused for the sequels or Reach, though ODST came pretty close.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Seems pointless when a PS3 can do it anyway. Also PS games have aged very badly and I'm not sure it'll enjoy the mainstream retro appeal of Nintendo and Atari's efforts. Not gonna comment on the "aged badly" statement, as I think old games need to be contextualized, but the PS1 did have several gre...

Oh I found my back-ups of my old Cyber City Oedo VHS'. Proper old school Manga Video nostalgia for me.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I think I'd like a PS2 Mini but it would need about 200 games to cover everything I might want!

Re: What anime are you watching thread

Bit of a nostalgia trip for me;

Ghost in the Shell SAC (not the Movie, much too self serious)
Akira
Patlabor The Movies
Macros Zero
And I think I'll hunt down Macros Plus and Initial D, too.

I fancy more 80s/90s Mech Sci-Fi action. I never tried Neon Genesis so may have a look at that.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I still have around 3 PS1s in my loft and PS2s, plus all the games I ever really wanted on the system, so won't be buying this. Nice for perhaps the younger generation of kids though. I am sure you can probably pick up an original job lot off ebay for less with some decent games. I guess the games ...

Is it a Stephen King thing? Or just a similar name?

Re: Backwards Compatability

In a big fan of BC and my split of One /BC games is about 50/50. It's much better than trying to run Xbox games on a '360 but it will never be as good as having the original hardware. Unfortunately I just don't have the room for all 3 generations of Xbox so I have to take what I can get.
