And on the plus side it means less Atari bias and talk.  Yay!

I really hate those Atari fanbois!  Some of them seem to make new games every other day! ... 2438437888

Hmmm I read this thread yesterday.  I've read today's comments..... [edit: and Grey and SnakeEyes stop posting a minute!!  I'm typing and watching the Commonwealth Games programme on the beeb and I can't keep up! Now I have to edit....... ....]

I wasn't going to comment for any reason other than that I don't like farewell threads.  Whether it's an official announcement or a self indulgent, self scripted 'ta tar', I think they're unnecessary.   

But I'm here now so first I'll say, au revoir! 

Now, what's this about pulling reviews he wrote?  Surely some mistake?  I really don't think Kieren would want this community to be damaged in anyway regardless of differences or whatever the issues may be.  I think he's a better man than that.  Better these are left alone for the benefit of the RVG community.  Ok, so I'm wrong -  I gave him the benefit of the doubt too.  What a selfish act to leave on.

Looking forward, someone will step up to fill his place and as the old formula goes when someone leaves something - you're celebrated if you were any good, then blamed for everything, then forgotten.  C'est la vie.

And on the plus side it means less Atari bias and talk.  Yay!  Can I suggest the job spec includes that any candidate "Must be a Commodore fanboy" and has "Nintendo fan" in the desirable criteria. ;)

Some of the Infocom adventures had great stories.  Same with Level 9; Silicon Dreams trilogy was pretty darned cool! 

Point n click tended to have decent story driven gameplay....  Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, Blade Runner(maybe), Grim Fandango, Monkey Island....

Very cool.  Would love to see this expanded into a featurette or full on movie!

Very tough call to name 10 off the top of my head but here they are. 

Elite - Beeb
Tetris - Gameboy
Maniac Mansion - C64
Street Fighter II - SNES
Gunstar Heroes - MD
Streets of Rage 2 - MD
Suspended - C64
Impossible Mission - C64
Shining Force - MD

No doubt I will be forgetting numerous games I'm very fond of and even if I haven't, next week I could give a different 10!

Strontium Dog, a BASIC game, that has something of a Minter quality to it making it very engaging to play.

c64 longplay - Nemesis the Warlock part 1 of 8 (1-5)

Two Wii games....

Lucky Luke on the Wii is pretty good fun if a little shallow

I have to go for DOOM despite it being an obvious choice.  I thought about Goldeneye but although I played it so much I could breeze through all the levels on 007 difficulty and knew all the levels as well as I know my house I don't have a desire to go back and play it again.  That's not the case with DOOM and DOOM 2.  I still get a kick out of playing these games.

I'm quite happy to see more BSG.  Loved the original TV show as a kid and really enjoyed the reboot.  A shame the writers strike hit the reboot.  Some episodes were significantly substandard and any flow the series hoped to have was lost.

I have the same experience of Caprica as WiggyDiggyPoo and just couldn't bring myself to watch it :(

Writers strike only really affected Part 2 of S4, there was a longer gap between S3+4 than Part 1 of S4 and Part 2.... At that point the anticipation of the finale which (despite the age!) I'll politely not mention in case anyone watches it meant that even that 6 month delay didnt really hit me -  I tended to watch it in 2 or 3 episode blocks anyway rather than weekly.

I think I'll give BSG1978 another go, it has been a while since I tried to watch it....
I watched all the episodes of the reboot on LoveFilm watching 1 or 2 episodes, sometimes an indulgent 3rd, almost every night.  It took well over a month.  That's why I was so aware of the disjointed nature of the story.  Some episodes simply didn't follow on progressively, when they really could and should have.  I found some episodes so jarringly different in tone and direction that it took me a while to settle back into watching without thinking "wtf have they done!"

As for the religious hokem and Starbuck nonsense... meh.

Still, all that said, I still enjoyed it.
