  1. I know how you feel mate. I always step away and they draw me back eventually. Heat was alright - it had a nice city ambience in the lighting but was mostly dead otherwise. I preferred the Crew 2. NFS games are very hit and miss hence why people feel the way they do. Some of us know this series from the classic Car and Driver and NFS on the 3D0 and when every game did something new. Now they just focused on teenage racers and whats worse is they don't really care. Like Heat i'll get this cheap. I'd rather pay full price for games Wreckfest or the Crew 2. Whatever you think, at least some love went into those games.
  2. Interestingly i see Digital Eclipse are based in Emeryville. Didn't the original VCS carts show Atari or Warner as being located there as well? I'm sure i remember seeing Emeryville on the old 1st gen cart instructions - or theres some connection? When i was a kid it seemed like a really weird place to call a city for what i thought was such a huge company.
  3. Oh okay. I didn't recall many Atari branded games om the ST. I knew about Tengen - but i recall Domark doing most of the publishing? That was all the arcade conversion stuff right? I recall most of it wasn't that great.
  4. Did Atari themselves release any ST games? I thought Tramiel closed them all down? I guess Warner still hold the rights.
  5. Haha...i've got a videogame Hip Hop track... As featured on my old Streetbeats mixes back in the day. I mixed it with the 4 hero track "Something in the way".
  6. Thats how a dedication should be done. Fantastic compilation and history. I hope DE decide to do all the arcade companies eventually. I can't think of a collection thats been better done. Fair play. I've twatted' Jeff to see if he'll release a Llamasoft collection. The soundtrack alone would be worth the cash!
  7. The heavy bass driven musik would suggest something urban and "gangy". gangy /'gangy'/ adjective made of, or has some gangs in it. "croydon was very gangy"

    I was playing this last night and totally agree. I don't understand why they didn't have a typical campaign mode either. This is a Chinese game isn't it? They seem to be a new overpowering force in videogaming - at least if Steam is anything to go by.
  9. Just sitting in the plane as the rain falls has a certain meditive ambient quality.
  10. ppfft. 60fps. What is that. 1000 fps. Hmm...Cheaper then an average driving set up though. And you can fly the world!
  11. A FEW HOURS! LOL Also, id suggest you watch the Anime too. Really helps add to the immersion.
  12. Thought i'd pop in as ive just started playing this again. This game is wonderful. I thought the float mission did a Stirling job at giving them impression of crowds, their LED/Holo-clothes and general feeling of being in some huge event. No game has ever done that to my knowledge. Not like this. In fact the float mission was one of the most amazing missions i've ever played when you see it all in 4k HDR. Glorious.
  13. Whats drake4tflops? I mean thats nice for what exactly?
  14. I'd just watch the ACG review tbh. He's the only reviewer i like right now.

    It was basically Taito's attempt as pushing the F2 hardware to its utmost limits but the guy the made the board had left the team to work elsewhere so the main programmer had too learn it inside out. An intresting titbit is the waterfall on stage 2. Ram was an issue on the board (probably why the explosions look why they do) and Taito's managment was so insistent that the waterfall stay in place (as it frankly looks awesome and i'm assuming was a competing factor) that they would have stopped development if it had to be removed. So anyhoo the dev (Takatsuna Senba) didn't have time to put in the 3 frames of animation required for the waterfall so held off until the summer. At the same time he had to do a report on some chracter creation tool but as part of cost-cutting if only one employee was working the air-con was switched off. The computer driving the creation tool had no fan and the temprature increased to 40 degrees. So Takatsuna had to strip to his underware with a chilled towel wrapped around his head whilst he did the animation and report! The big irony of course is you can't actually "see" the inspiration behind Battle Geregga BECAUSE ITS MOSTLY THOSE SHIT BLACK BULLET THINGS MIXED WITH STREAKY LONG LAZORZ! However the bomb effects are awesome.
  16. I'd buy this. The X68000 version of many arcade games were superb. Better then the Megadrive and totally destroys ANYTHING on the Amiga or ST (well, duh...cost, etc) As long as it doesn't feature too much Capcom stuff seeing as its basically a CPS1 board. But theres some great hardcore shmups on this system.

    Its 2 frames on Aleste, Aleste 3 is 3 frames with a 10ms audio delay.
  18. Some of the 80's ones are pretty good. Victory Heat Rally should be cool. Neodori forever looks nice. Even Flatout 4 is pretty good. Not bugbear good. But not the disaster 3 was. Luckily we still have Bugbear Oh and Hotshot racing buy i guess everyones played that.

  20. Some of those are just things with screens! By that notion my Kitchen wall can play doom because it has a TV!
