Re: Favourite Newsfield Magazine

I picked Amtix cos it was my favourite 8bit system and never had bought the other 2 (I only owned the CPC back in the day)!

Plus I'm feeling really sorry for the other 2 voters and thought I'd make it 3 ;) lol

Re: Best handheld for retro gaming?

I find the constant firmware battles on the PSP annoying I don't understand this. :? I've had my PSP for about 8 months.

Re: LBP, Chronicles of Riddick and Tiger Woods for £7

Tiger Woods is pointless on anything other than the Wii now. I totally agree, I tried playing my 360 version of 08 the other night but since getting the new version for the wii with wiimotion plus controls it's just not a patch on it gameplay wise! The graphics are really up to scratch now too and ...

Re: Wii Motion Plus and VT/GST

I am currently trying to get to grips with GST and on first impressions it seems very good. It wasn't until I used the Nunchuck as well that I find it a much better experience. It's very realistic cos I'm a crap tennis player in real life :). Seriously it feels like I'm gonna get a lot better on it....

Re: Anyone else hungry for the next gen?

[quote="Sir Hilary Bray"]It's mad really, but already I've started to get excited about the next generation of consoles, I really hope Nintendo get back to their old ways, and give us up to scratch graphics, and ground breaking games, I think the Wii is their worse system since the Virtual Boy.
