  1. Think you are probably right. I have a thing for the most stripped version of games. Avoid a lot of ornimention crap. But to be fair bed metroid is brutal!
  2. I reckon this must be from an arcade in Portrush (maybe Newcastle)?
  3. Spent bought an hour on this today. I tried to play super metroid back in the day didn't like it. Tried super again few years ago. Still didn't like it. However today I actually enjoyed this (nes original) though I'm playing with save states on retro arch. It's hard as nails. Might try the GBA version though. Thing is, everyone says super metroid is one of best games ever made. I must be missing something because it doesn't shine like super Mario world???
  4. My brother went to the dump in Fermanagh, Tekken 2 arcade machine sitting there. I wanted it. No were to put it. This was bout 4 years ago.
  5. Are the nes or Gameboy elevator action ports any good? Also what's best on megadrive, roll thunder 3 or 2? (Enjoyed the write up thanks!)
  6. Bit of random question: was the Amiga 16 or 8 bit?
  7. Been playing a few hours of this. I stuck on the perfect dark remaster. I really think Goldeneye is a much better single player. It's just way more fun. Better pacing and tighter levels. The variety in the levels is brilliant. The dam plays completely differently to say facility. The silo run under a timer plays different to that too.
  8. There are noticeable bugs: level three the run way, loads of guards came running at me with no guns. They then just stood there facing away. Happened s few times. Level two: the scientist didn't give the door decoder first time round. It's still a great game though and I'll be play a lot more today . Thing is, if you have a decent pc you can play the original at 60fps 1080p on an emu. It looks great.
  9. Got it running on my pc under TV. It's really good. Emulator runs pretty flawless.
  10. I have a look thanks
  11. I did actually start playing that too! Took me back to seeing screen shots of the spectrum version in your Sinclair , what I would have done for this version! Shinobi is just too hard on the pc engine, the first boss, I can't get past a single flame thing. Arcade no where near as tough.
  12. Been playing shinobi on retro arch pc engine emulator. I've never seen this mentioned anywhere, it's by far the best port ive played of it. It also seems way harder than the arcade. Are there any other games like this in the pc engine? I've never really played one before. So far a lot of verticle shooters than seem a little samey. Is the list of games on the mini a good place to start?
  13. Has anyone any thoughts on amped vs amped 2? I remember liking amped 2 but I tried it recently and the presentation is really annoying. The slopes are cover in photo spots which are really distracting (along with everyone shouting woo hoo you go dawg or something.)
  14. I was playing blue storm too. It's really good, but it doesn't handle as well as 64. Plus that early 2000s music on avalanche and bluestone is shit
  15. Been playing 1080 avalanche on dolphin emulator. I bought it back in the day and left it back to the shop. They really messed up the good bits of 1080. Depth seems to be gone from the controls and trick system. That spin the stick thing to regain balance is God awful, it's really jarring and snaps you right out of the game with a horrible sound affect , basically slaps you in the face to remind you it's a video game. The course design is just full of horribly crap gimmicks like ice spikes landing randomly in front of you that you have to dodge. Or the saw mill bits. There's none of t
  16. Has he got a write up of how he did this? Pretty amazing!
  17. Is it any good? The review scores are low, but I'm thinking that's just because these sort of games were falling out of fashion. I tried mxt mototrax (most unmemorable name ever!) On my pc, it seemed good, but I had to configure pad manually and I'd prefer it on a console.
  18. My original Xbox is broken, looking on eBay I can get a new one pre modded with hdmi for an extra 50 quid. Thing is I've got a component cable so don't think I really need this. Anyone here seen a hdmi mod and know if it's worth it?
  19. Brilliant!! Thanks for this! And the show !
  20. I've been watching these. They are great! Sort of comfort TV with Xmas hangovers. You inspired me to fire up speed ball two on retro arch (megadrive version). That session was soon ended by my 18 month old demanding attention. But still! Can anyone point me to something that tells me what the buttons do?
  21. Ha! Good! (Yeah I tried reading it prior to issue 19, it was a bit grim or very serious or something )
