Topic: Gradius or R-Type?
Replies: 32

R-type was released two years after Gradius - which accounts for R-Type's vast superiority in almost all respects. Comparing R-Type to Gradius II / Vulcan Venture would have been much fairer. Though I don't play the original Gradius much these days (too simplistic I'm afraid), I still play most of t...

ST screenshots are immediately recognizable.

That's "Le Manoir du Comte Frozarda", a French adventure game with lots of naked dead bodies. :?

This is another Atari game. No idea what it is, of course. :?

That looks like an Atari 400/800/XL game. Bad luck : I've never owned any of those machines. :(

It is Combat indeed, but not on the Atari.

I never knew another version of Combat had ever been released until a few weeks ago. The console it runs on is quite obscure. Any clue?

The title is not exactly Combat 2.
Besides, the game works on a 'real' machine - i.e. a machine released back in the day.

It sure looks like Armor Battle, but it's not.

Take a close look at the tanks on the original screenshot. They should ring you a bell.

Looks like Gothik on my 64, but with much more vibrant colours. Gothik on the CPC maybe?

Irem's Vigilante and Data East's Dragon Ninja do contain some nunchuka action - you'll have to pick the nunchukas up though.

I own both the 360 and the PS3, and I'll have to second James A's above opinion : the 360 is by far the best piece of gaming equipment there is - should Bluray, Metal Gear and Granturismo not be your priority, that is. The 360's flaws have mostly been ironed out : it is no longer noisy (you can now ...

Good answer, MikeHaggar ! The Texas Chainsaw Massacre it is.

Resident Evil is nothing compared to this beast. ;)
