    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Got Gunlord X as 9 quid seemed worth it for some modern Turrican goodness but it feels all wrong. The graphics and sound duo a decent job of capturing the old Turrican fine but the characters movement feels just way too slow compared to Turrican 1 and 2 on my old Atari St

    What's heroine anthem zero like? It looks quite good in the trailer but then also looks like a mobile phone game which puts me off.

    Dark Castle looks brilliant. Here's Bolo on the ST

    This is the end... Good and bad TV endings

    X-bomber / Starfleet had the best ending in my imagination only because having watched it all over the summer holidays I missed the finale due to being taken abroad by parents on our summer holiday.

    Monochrome games

    Seeing the trailer for Earth Atlantis suddenly reminded me of the very few atari st games that worked in its old hi res monochrome mode (bolo, monkey island). Are there any monochrome hi res gems from other platforms people would recommend checking out?

    Didn't see it featured in the offers last Thursday, but heard on here it's in the sale assumed I'd be fine picking it up before this Thursday. What a useless way to run a sale promotion.

    Any impressions on katana zero from anyone that bought it? The nintendo life review makes it sound awesome.
  8. Still no gold or silver block modes?.....hoped they'd introduce that as DLC

    Protectors for your retro items

    Just like certain school books were expected to be protected seemed a great idea in the days before custom cases. Of course now they all have a plasticy sheen that makes them look like cheap after market reproductions instead of the originals that they are.

    Protectors for your retro items

    When I began building up my snes collection I wanted to prevent damage to the already tatty boxes foolishly sticky back plasticed the lot....still have them in the garage somewhere.

    Aqua kitty is great, I purchased it in the sale a while back, lovely take on defender that seems nicely balanced.

    Shelter generations is currently half price, was on my watch list from the trailer vid but the reviews don't seem to be as great as I'd hoped for.

    Nintendo Switch

    It took nearly 3 decades but Addams family pinball has finally been surpassed.

    Nintendo Switch

    In the platform agnostic world we're heading to its probably too controversial to say the wild popularity of this and similar ilk seems to be largely confined to PC gamers, certainly these types of games numbers are much smaller on other platforms and those that migrate across seem to have much less impact than on the PC.

    Nintendo Switch

    Sacred had horses in it didn't it....and Nox was meant to have a slightly superior storyline back in the day....but the game play in all of them was fairly similar from what I recall and left a lot to be desired. I somehow foolishly thought from the name Diablo, the prominent demonic logos featured within the game art, combined with probably confusing some completely different game footage with the original Diablo that I'd end playing something that was like sort of cross between king of monsters crossed with dungeon keeper crossed with an RPG. My first switch purchase I've actually regretted and a lesson in doing at least some cursory research before taking the plunge solely on the back of prominent franchise with great fan impressions.
