  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. Gaming in general was far better in the 1990s. Oh, and Yoshi's Island is overrated.
  4. Everybody's got one: an opinion that runs completely counter to prevailing gaming wisdom. Whether you love a game that sucks, think a beloved classic deserves to be knocked down a peg or two, or earnestly believe the Atari Jaguar deserved to win the console wars, step up to the mic, take your unpopular position, and defend it like you've just been digitized into the sequel to Shaq-Fu. Hey, who knows? Maybe you'll discover your opinion isn't that unpopular after all... Since it's hardly fair to post a question and not answer it myself, I hereby submit one of your Retromags Goddess's very own unpopular opinions: Killzone 2 is the most godawful piece of garbage console FPS I've ever played in my life. Seriously, beyond the graphics (which are quite good, and were phenomenal for 2009), everything about this game just feels like a chore: the controls are beyond terrible, the AI is ridiculous, and the story is almost non-existent. If you like Killzone 2, lose my number, m'kay? There, I feel much better now. Your turn. *huggles* Areala
  5. Such a delightful idea! I subscribed, although I'm not sure when I'll have time to go through an entire six-hour stream. I'll certainly do my best though. *huggles* Areala
  6. Unpopular opinion: Killzone 2 is the single worst console-based FPS I have ever played in my life. It's just godawful.
  7. I'm looking for the full issues of PSM (Australia July 2009, Red Dead Redemption cover) and (UK April 2007, Manhunt 2 cover). Anyone have or know where I can find these issues?

  12. I bought this game at a yard sale in 1998 but never beat it. Maybe with this generous contribution I can finally beat the game. Thanks!

  15. PC Powerplay is also owned by Future. Future has already taken the the magazine to a bi-monthly schedule from monthly. Future is also using a lot of content from PC Gamer UK in both PC Gamer USA and now PC Powerplay essentially robbing the magazines of what made them distinctly American and Australian. Quite a few issues of PC Powerplay are on Internet Archive. Those issues (along with the DVDs and CDs) may end up disappearing in the future if Future aggressively pursues copyright claims. I have an almost complete set of PC Gamer USA since I subscribed beginning with Issue 1. I may have a complete set. It has been a while since I checked. There is a distinct difference between the early issues under Imagine and the later issues under Future. The same with the issues of PC Powerplay before Future took over in 2018.
  16. Thank you for the clarification and answering my post! I will remember in the future to cross reference the Publication database. I remember that RetroMags saved me a lot of confusion when it cam to the Game Players, Ultra Game Players and Game Buyers numbering.
  17. @frankcifaldi so like the Sega Channel?
  18. Every Sunday for the last year I have been playing through as many games as I can from an issue of GamePro magazine, framed as a comedy Late Night show. I had a subscription to GamePro from 1995 to 1998 or so, and I always found GamePro to be sort of the most vanilla in terms of showcasing a bit of everything. It's been a great magazine to travel back through all the major releases over the various platforms. I started in the 1995 issues and I am just coming up on the end of 1999! Episodes air here every Sunday at 9:30pm PST: https://www.twitch.tv/norrinradd22 I also archive every episode on Youtube. Here is the latest: The format these days is that I first talk about the movies and the music that came out the same month in my intro segment called the Pop Culture Refresher, then I play about 10 games from each magazine while going through it page by page. I usually try to pick a mix of genuinely good games and absurdly ridiculous games. I've played every console and handheld up to this point, including Tiger Game.com. The story of the show is that I bought a space station with my life savings and turned it in to a nightclub that only plays video game music, where I host a late night talk show with my co-host Fred Couples (former PGA Tour Champion). The two of us are constantly besieged by the clubs union maintenance man, who is usually trying to mess the show up. I figure some of you might genuinely enjoy the show, and if I can get any momentum here, I will happily update the thread with new episodes.
  19. Just when you think you've seen everything lol.. these guys have been working on a Resident Evil 1 game on the good old SEGA Genesis / Mega drive and it looks pretty awesome! Obviously not 3D but a very cool 2.5D isometric retro conversion of all the rooms, monsters, and characters. I tried out the demo on the Itch page and sadly its waaaaaaay older than the stuff they've been posting over the last few years. Hope they get it done before Capcom's lawyers see it lol. https://pscd.itch.io/bio-evil Recent test demo that looks insane! even the music conversions are awesome Big fan preview showing lots of cool footage (Commentary not in English so I have no idea what's being said)
  20. Yeah I wish the Wonderswan had done better.. not because I wanted one but because they were remaking the original 3 NES Final fantasy games on them in a SNES style but because the console did so badly they abandoned the remake of FF3 and converted the FF1 & FF2 remakes to the Playstation one for the Originas collection and left out FF3. That really ticked me for like 20+ friggin years lol! However of course yesterday the new pixel remasters of the first 6 FF games series started coming out including FF3 so finally it got that 2D love bringing it up to the same quality of the other 5 classic FF games. Something I never thought would happen after 20 years so am very happy. Although sadly they don't have the special FMV sequences they did for the PS1 remakes so a part of me still thinks 'what if' the Wonderswan had done better and they'd made that FF3 remake and ported it to Ps1 with some cool videos.. but meh after 20+ years I'll take what I can get haha! But if I'm going to name a console failure purely for the sake of me loving that console then it's gotta be the Mega CD / Sega CD. I often wonder how it would have sold if instead of marketing it for its FMV capabilities they'd marketed it on it's extra processing power or moreso it's 3D/mode 7 like capabilities (eg Sonic CD special stages, Batman Returns driving stages, Thunderhawk, Soul Star, F1 Beyond the Limit, Adventures of Batman & Robin etc) it might have done better as once all the bad reviews on FMV games playability started pouring in and spread via word of mouth it just killed interest. To this day there's still people out there who think the Sega CD is just a Genesis with a CD drive attachment lol. They had no idea about it's extra capabilities that were barely used. If people had seen this kind of stuff below on their TVs instead of just the FMV stuff maybe things would have been different, or at least gone a bit better. As even now I still remember the amazing Starfox adverts on TV and everyone talking about how amazing they were. Little did anyone know sega was doing 3D stuff around the time time on the Sega CD that looked more advanced but was not being marketed much at all. https://youtu.be/FcyIVFQDIl0?t=132 https://youtu.be/fwVuYfr5fw0?t=30 As for the SuperGrafx I never even heard of that until a few years ago when I started getting Retro Gamer magazines delivered and they'd do specials on it lol! 5 games is terrible.. So yeah.. definitely failed big time!
  21. I replay many games.. although most them are sandbox'ish which makes them highly replayable lol! eg Civilization series, Colonization, Master of Magic, Master of Orion series. I'm replaying quite a few pc games from my youth these days as it's been like 20 years so it's fun to go back plus I kinda need to replay them so I can do nice tributes to them on my retro gaming website. But if we're talking strictly console then yeah I guess it's a pretty short list eg I replayed the Sonic games on my Sega Mega Drive many times in my life, I love replaying the first few levels of Wonder Boy in Monsterland on my Sega Master System too. In fact generally when I'm feeling nostalgic for my old console games I just boot them up, play the first levels a bit to reminisce and then leave it that lol.
  22. Thanks guys! haha yeah desperate times called for desperate measures lol. That annoying ebay seller is still selling the mini catalogues for a fortunate.. just wont take the hint. Wish I could edit my posts to change all my links to the archive itself as unfortunately some bloody musician decided to call themselves Megazone and someone's backed up their stuff to archiveorg resulting it their music appearing in my magazine collection. So I've gone in and edited all 56 rescued items in the collection to have a new 'more specific' author/creator name of "Megazone Magazine" which should hopefully stop any future mixups with other people using the word megazone in their stuff! Hopefully at some point when my post count is high enough I'll be able to go up and change all occurrences of this: https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator:"MegaZone"&sort=titleSorter To this: https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator:"MegaZone+Magazine"&sort=titleSorter
