This weekend I have been mostly playing Lumines and Mercury Meltdown. I have come to the conclusion that I really really suck at all games except OutRun and Zero Wing :(

This weekend I upgraded to the latest version of MAME for my GP2X, and got a much bigger collection of ROMs - so now have access to much more arcade goodness than I had before.

I've been playing:

Magic Sword
Moonwalker (alas - without sound)
Strider

Thrust

Post by blakespot » Mon Aug 06, 2007 7:00 am

I've been playing lots of Thrust lately. Both the C64 version on my GP2X via emu (w/ custom control keymappings) and the cart-based Vectrex remake (which is the best version I've seen, btw.)

A recent blog post of mine talks about it and links out to a few of the versions (including movie of the Vectrex remake in action).

Anyone else love the feel of this classic? There're many remakes of this for the PC and Amiga.

Agreed, it should be on there. I felt like that for a long about the Sega System 18 board.

Micro Machines on the PSP is a fustrating experience, one mistake and you might as well restart the race as you can't win.

Infected is a no-nonsense zombie-killer with a great sense of humour; actually laughed out loud at the first cut scene when the kids programme was interrupted for breaking news about people ripping the legs of old ladies and beating them to death with them before being told by her producer about how kids would still be watching this! :lol:

Last night I was playing Mega Bomberman and SFII: Special Champion Edition on the Japanese Mega Drive. It all worked fine that I end up completing SFII: Special Champion Edition on difficulty level 8 (highest).

I'm still trying to finish the Saturn version of Gradius. I can finish my favourite version (PC Engine) by using the 'save state' feature on Magic Engine, but not without it. By the way, is that generally considered cheating? I'm still playing through the game without using an actual cheat after all. It just saves me starting from the beginning of the level every time I die :?

I've been playing a disgraceful amount of Castlevania (the original NES game, on the "NES Classics" GBA re-release) on my DS. :D

Spent far too long playing Mario Picross on the Snes last night. I'd only dug it out initially to test my Snes set-up.. a few hours later I was still playing it.

Well. I downloaded an old DOS emulator so i could play my old games i have on 3 n 'alf inch disks. I spent hours on Moraff's World (Seriously... best gameplay ever... ever), Captain Cosmo, Grand Prix (In all the magnificence of it's 16 colours) and... if anyone has played this game i'm gonna love it... ZORK! An horrific text adventure in which i managed to die in about 2 minutes from drinking poisoned fountain water.

Game and Watch Collection

I still love Donkey Kong!!!

Also Impossible Mission DS-I'm not too sure on the remake but I love the original and using the stylus for the puzzles is excellent)

I can't wait for my larger memory card to turn up so i can put ScummVM and various other emus on it!!!


(both thanks to the Yarrrrrtastic R4)
