Although that would be a blast, I dont tend to get up North much, unfortunately.

Anyway dude, much as I can still demolish arrogant amateurs, I, a) sense youre a bit handy at fighters, and b) havent played it for about 18 months, so I reckon I'm probably saving myself a bit of humiliation. :wink:

It would definitely be the DC version, though, preferably with arcade sticks.

Maybe a future Retro Fusion?
I'd be up for that too (at a future event especially!) Maybe we could make a little competition of it (if enough people are interested)

Used to be best at shmups (Souky, Dimahoo, Garegga, Mahou Daisakusen) but I'm well rusty nowadays and don't really have the time to master them like I used to. Now I would say driving games are probably my best type, PGR 2/4/Forza 2 etc I'm pretty decent at them I don't mind saying.

Awesome! Since watching the King of Kong I've developed an unholy fascination with Billy Mitchell- maybe my destiny is to become just like him: Hair, beard, dress sense, the works.

Other than the being best at a particular game bit, unfortunately. :)

There was an hour free between the end of school and the start of evening study and I'd spend it finishing Sonic & Knuckles as fast as I could, every day, with all emeralds. I became pretty nifty as a result. I dunno what my best time was, I never checked, I just wanted to complete it before heading back to school. I also knew Sonics 1 and 2 inside-out.

When I worked in the funfair one summer I'd play Time Crisis 2 every lunch hour. My record was completing it with only getting shot once (this including hitting each guy three times). There's room to improve there, but the summer ended and they packed up before I got there. Still, wherever it went next, the entire scoreboard was me.

My brother and I fairly hammered Soul Calibur during the Dreamcast's lifetime, either that or Marvel vs Capcom 2 was sitting in the disk drive for like five years. Funny story, he was playing Soul Calibur 4 online the other night and was being hammered by someone playing as my best character, Cervantes. Then the Cervantes guy tried to charge-drill him, which my brother countered perfectly - very difficult to do, the timing's pinpoint. Then he tried an air drop; countered again. Cervantes' two best moves, completely neutered. The other guy completely lost confidence at that point, you could tell by the way he started playing that he was utterly shocked that anyone could do that. My brother can, damn him. Five years' practice.

Sit me in front of a game for long enough & I'll generally be able to more than hold my own, IF I have an interest in the game.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 & Gem Fighter Mini Mix are 2 of my "signature games" as is SvC Chaos, as I have all 3 JAMMA boards (or MVS cart for SvC Chaos). It took me a while to adjust from using a controller to using a joystick, but I managed.

I can only really say I've mastered a few games.

Championship Manager 93 - When you've taken Barnet form division 3 to Premiership champions and European cup winners, I think you can say you've beaten the game.

IK+ - Being called a mega hero on the score table makes me feel invincible at this.

Llamatron - consistently get over a million with one credit.

All on the ST. The only games that I've played on recent times that inspire me to practice them in order to master them are Outrun 2, Rez and Space Giraffe. Unfortunately, I still suck at all three. I was pretty kick-arse at Goldeneye at one point, (Licence to Kill only, Normal is for shandies) but since leaving uni I've fallen out of practice.

After playing Bubble Bobble all my chilhood, I thought I was awesome at it, Getting to the boss with one credit etc. But after recently playing an arcade version that handed me my bubble-encased arse on a plate I'll refrain from putting it on my list.

Talk to me Tapey. Tell me your best Tag teams!

My best teams always have Hworang in them often with Brian Fury or GunJack or the Sumo fellow (forgot his name) .

Woody, haha that game was awesome. Proper good memories of playing this for hours with my mate. :lol: Does anyone remember the hideous Death Mask? :lol: Similar kind a thing, but in '3d'.

Death Mask was the worst FPS type game.

Pah!

I won the Prem 8 or 9 times and The European Cup on multiple occasions with Exeter City. I then sold all my good players to raise as much money as I could (got over 200 mil in the bank) but I still kept on winning!

A good trick I found was to buy extremely young players with really high average ratings (regardless of skill values). Give them a few years and they'd turn into superstars!

After achieving success with a club, I usually go back to square one by applying for a job with a struggling division 3 job (unless the Birmingham City job is going 8) ) By the time I'm back in the top flight again, my old team is awesome, and provides a reet challenge. Repeat this a few times and it makes for a much more contested Prem than today's real competition! My last game went: Barnet, Scarborough, Birmingham, Wigan. Now they are all in the top 6!

I also like nurturing young stars. However, I like to start with untouched players (no avg rating yet, younger the better) judging them by stats alone. Very cheap, and great to watch them become multi-million pound internationals. That and George Ndah... always buy George Ndah.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I remember Ndah. Ha ha ha. I'm terrible at remembering stuff like that, but once someone mentions a name...

For an added challenge, play multiplayer with a friend and set a clock (chess style). The rush to buy good players is quite exhilirating...
