I may be wrong but I thought you could do fireballs and dragon punches, a bit difficult with those punch pads though.
You can do the hurricane kick also.

I'd second this. It wouldn't have to be a big feature, half a side column even.
Just enough for a screenshot and a short paragraph or two.

Or something like "If it wasn't for X there wouldn't be Y". A short item again featuring an old game - X and reasons why you think it influenced a more modern game - Y.

Or.....
Old v New
An old game v a new game of the same genre.
i.e.
INDY 500 v Project Gotham
Scored entirely on gameplay.
Obviously in the above contest INDY 500 wins hands down due to
it being the best 2-player driving game!!! :D

Which Indy 500? There are several, none of which are a really good comparison to Project Gotham in style.

INDY 500 for the Atari VCS.

The styles are different, yes, but in essence they
are both racing games. And as a 2 player racing
game, it's better. :lol: :lol:

I've often wondered why banned members didn't simply rejoin the site with a different name. I mean email addresses are easy to come by. Or is you IP blocked if it's stable?

So I'm not alone in thinking Manic's posts seem to border on the nonsensical? :?

I'm asking if members are banned by name, email address, IP address or more substantial means.

Dunno if there's more can be done, but then i'm sure there's loads of stuff they can do I don't know about.

Then I should point out it's a shame that you sound a LOT like him, which is a bad thing considering a lotta people think the 'banned' member is a COMPLETE prick
