Re: This week's batch

I have just bought River Raid. I never got a chance to play it properly back in the day, so now is the time!

Re: Any other consoles you'd like to see?

Though I still believe the Game Room should focus on arcade games only, I'd really really like to play some Vectrex on my 360.

Re: Time Pilot Tips and advice

I'm not home yet, but at least I have access to a PC. Time Pilot is one of those games I have been playing for ages, but which I have always failed to master. Despite the years, I still find it extremely hard to negotiate the last stage. Dodging bullets and UFOs is nerve wracking - everything goes w...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Not much time to play these days, but I did start Darksiders a few weeks ago, and have thoroughly been enjoying it. Fans of Zelda should definitely have a look at this gem.

Re: Microsoft Game Room

I am surprised at the amount of criticism levelled at the Game Room. Sure it has its flaws, but how come so many (retro) gamers blame it for focussing too much on a period when so many classics were released? A classic remains a classic, right? Or should we infer that those classics have actually ag...

Re: New Challenge - Super Cobra

I've been eagerly awaited the new challenge, sadly I won't be home till next Thursday... :( If the challenge is not over by the time I am back, I'll give it a go as I have always wondered what this unofficial follow-up to Scramble plays. I hear it is much more difficult than its ancestor. EDIT : bef...

Re: Should I get a PS3?

I'll second C=Style. Unless you have plenty of time to play games, additional consoles will probably not be of any use. The PS3 I bought two years ago "because of the exclusives" is gathering dust while the 360 I've had since launch is pretty much used every day. I have played Uncharted, Stardust HD...

Re: Game Room Club

Cheers mate.

I've just had a look at a few of your Game Rooms - I was so impressed with the number of cabinets some of you own already!

Re: Next weeks challenge

I've just bought Nightstalker , the Intellivision classic. It's a pretty good maze game with a great atmosphere that has been overlooked by too many for far too long. I'd love playing this game with everyone here. But any other game will do - though I'd feel sorry for having to buy Scramble again af...

Re: May 12th game pack list is here

I don't know... I was always tempted to buy Keystone Kapers back in the day... Any idea if it has aged well?

Still too many Atari VCS releases. :(
