Circus Maximus
Whoa! This game gives me a headaque
Very bad frame rate that makes it borderline unplayable

Barbarian
I really should start checking the back of these games I buy,
Going off the FMV sequence at the start it looked like a God of war clone.
NO!
Its a Power stone rip

Shadowman 2
This looks like a Dreamcast game and is a bit wank

A lot of people seem to like this game but I think your impressions are correct, it's awful!

Played a bit of Virtual On Tangram just now. My hand is sore...

Garou--In my opinion, it's more fun to casually pick up and play than Street Fighter 3. I find myself playing this a lot these days when I want an uncomplicated but not stupid 2d fighter.

Only way to play Virtua on is with the sticks.

Or the PS2 version on the pad

Yeah, but those VO sticks can be damned expensive, and it's still just for one game. If one day my game becomes a popular party attraction with my friends, maybe, MAAYBE I'll spring the money for it.

Nah its cool, but thanks for the offer. I kinda urge to own it on N64. I like carts and playing them with a stupid spaceship looking controller :lol:

Make your own.

Theres loads of guides online and some look good.
Id make some, but I lack the skills

My building skills are even worse than yours. Maybe one day though. I'll look at that Sega fanboy's homemade Naomi 2 console thread again to inspire me to goof around with electronics and stuff.

Installing Assassin's Creed Revelations (360) as I type. Lets hope this continues the series in a good way. I have avoided any trailers, previews, reviews, etc for this game, so not a clue where it's heading.

Back to attacking the pile of unplayed games so I started the original Medal of Honour for the PS1 today. Still plays very well today and the loading times are surprisingly speedy. Great fun and even better that the stealth sections (using a fake ID to get around undetected) can just be ignored completely in favour of simply shooting everybody with no reprocussions. Far easier and faster to get around with well-placed silenced pistol headshots than messing about with all that ID business :) .

Got the sequel (MoH Underground) lined up next. I played quite a lot of that one back in the day but it quite hard towards the end and I don't think I ever completed it so it'll be interesting to revisit that one.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
