  1. Yeah, either would have worked. I just felt with a bit of a graphical change, this was the plot to Rambo: First Blood Part 2. I said when we covered that game that it was crying out for stealth to be in it, here it is. Ah, well.
  2. Should have nicked the Rambo licence for it.
  3. We've said a few time on the podcast that so many of these games sacrifice playing well for technical willy waving. It doesn't matter if you did all that if the game played terribly. And this did. Even then.
  4. It's a discussion Graham and I need to have but I think the consensus is going to be doing more than two episodes per month. For Feb87 it'll probably be four episodes. I'm enjoying playing all the games, bad or not, so actually cherry picking them does not seem like the right thing to do any more.
  5. Just seen this. There is a full on remake of RoF. If you go look in the Zapped to the Past thread in retro, @Unofficial Wholinked to it.
  6. Yeah, good game this. I might revisit it at some point, but looking ahead to issues coming up, I've no idea where I'll find the time. There are nearly fifty games alone in February 87...
  7. I had a look round the Internet for that very same thing. Some people suggested joy to key or something like that. I never took it any further as I wanted to keep the playing experience as close to the original as possible. The thing with the special weapons in GB is that I use them all immediately aside from the last one you get for the end truck sequences.
  8. I don't really have a preference between them, but if I had to pick, I think I actually prefer the C64 version. I prefer the running animation on the main character and I'm more used to the timing of the C64 version. Put me in front of either version, though, and I'm a happy boy.
  9. It's the perfect arcade game in my opinion. Rock hard but fair. A superb game in every respect and a conversion that is nothing short of amazing.
  10. Sam Fox Strip Poker is just grubby on all fronts.
  11. It's called Table Tennis. That's it's name. https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/olympic-games/en/results/table-tennis/olympic-schedule-and-results.htm Ping-Pong is almost as bad as wiff-waff! See! Table Tennis!
  12. Watched it last night. I thought it was great fun, as you noted, mainly for its commitment to the cause. It's pure schlock from the get-go and all the better for it.
  13. Yeah, I had never played Sentinel before this episode and presentation wise, this was way ahead of most things around even in 1986. It plays fast and is a really fun game to boot as it plays to the machine's strengths rather than its weaknesses (I'm looking at you, Elite etc). It has loads of cool touches and is just a genuinely great game. You're also right @Unofficial Who that this is probably the best game of the episode.
  14. As I mentioned, Space Channel 5 is the one that this really brought to mind.
  15. And let's not mention the C64 version as well... But at least we had great music
  16. You don't know if he dies. Smith goes into him and then all the Smiths explode. We never actually see him die although it does look like he is dead when the machines wander off and leave him on the floor.
  17. It's OK, Slamball. I loved the style of the original advert for it. How cool is that?
  18. The full movie is on YouTube in 1080p no less.
  19. That's made me want to watch the Biggles movie again. Not seen it in years. The game was ambitious, that's for sure and is certainly one of the better movie tie-ins. I really do like that lightning effect. Yeah, Bombo was crap. No idea why I misremembered it. Boulderdash 3 just doesn't work with those graphics.
  20. In case the tweet goes, I took a screenshot.
  21. Seems like you might not want to play this when the president of Tripwire tweeted the following. What a cunt.
  22. I think that's a reference to him being Russian rather than anything sexist.
