« on: April 16, 2006, 03:43:16 am »
If I shouldn't be making a new topic for this just tell me ( I havent been here in a while)

Anyway I'm holding a contest, winner gets a metroid. But I have no idea what the competition will be so I'm open to suggestions. Whoever gives the suggestion I use will win a Tri-Force.

Music / Massive collection of VG music
« on: September 26, 2005, 12:05:16 pm »

I dont particularly like listening to gaming music outside of a game but I know alot of people do. So this is for them. This site has a HUGE amount of game music including FF soundtracks.

Console Games / Wireless controllers? BAH!
« on: September 04, 2005, 09:48:28 am »
Am I the only one that doesn't want a wireless controller with the 360 or anything else?

1. My brother will misplace it and without the wire leading to the console I wont be able to find it
2. batteries run out which just gets irritating
3. No cables means I cant throttle my friends

Podcasts / Dragons Lair

I wasnt sure where to put this but I figured here was as good a place as any. Steve, in the podcast you talk about how much you love dragons lair. Well a PS2 magazine in the UK a while ago came with a free DVD with the game that you can play on a DVD player with the remote controll. I was just thinking that if you wanted it I could try to hunt it down and send you it.

Console Games / Are Games getting easier or are we just getting better.
« on: August 12, 2005, 03:00:57 am »
I've noticed some talk on here about peaople looking for hard games and alot of talk amongst my friends about how easy alot of games are these days. So I was wondering what you guys think. Are games getting easier or are we just getting better? Personaly I think games are getting easier because I can beat most modern games without much trouble if I can find the time. But if I go back and play a Megaman X game on the SNES I spend alot of time getting my ass kicked.

I have a simple question for you steve, and that question is why?
What compelled you to create this website and start making the podcasts?

Spore: General / Thinking of Spore
« on: May 21, 2005, 01:58:16 am »
Just wondering did anyone else think about/imagine/wish for a game like spore before they knew of its existance?

I mean sometimes when I'm bored I think "you know what would make an awesome game..." and often I've thought of a game similar to spore, though I never thought as far as galactic conquest I often reached the point of having your own little tribe of creatures that you got to customise and teach. Of course I never thought that with current computers someone would actualy be able to do that.

Everything Else / Your Finest Hour
« on: May 19, 2005, 11:45:19 pm »
Well my golden game topic seems to be doing ok so lets go for another best of topic.
What do you think was your finest moment of gameplay ever, what did you do and then immediately think "wow...I did it". Perhaps you finished a realy hard game, beat an annoying boss or trounced a friend in multiplayer.

For me it was either completing populous (which had something like 3000 levels)
Getting the top score in the arcade at one of the ninja turtles games

Spore: General / Once spore comes out...
« on: May 18, 2005, 05:07:11 pm »
You know once spore comes out chances are we will all start looking for each others creatures and this forum will be full of tales of how our creatures got on.
No offence guys but I plan to kill any of your things I come into contact with  :P

Everything Else / Your golden game
« on: May 18, 2005, 04:51:36 am »
Just wondering what is your "golden game" that one special game you loved just a bit more than the others, one of those games you just cant stop playing or couldn't get enough of as a child.

For me it has to be populous, I've loved that game since I first played it on the master system. I used to sit up all night with my mum (yeah my mum loved the game 2, she liked the fact that you had to think to play it and was genuinely quite good at the game, though nothing could compare to her amazing skill at lemmings) playing populous. Recently I discovered that it was game of the year on the year I was born, which may explain my obsession.
