Retro Chat / Warriors of the Eternal Sun & Other unloved games
« on: December 22, 2012, 18:11:19 PM »
Put simply, I never understood why this game gets so little love?
Along with such games as Phantasy Star IV and Starflight it is certainly one of my favourite Megadrive games!
The story is simple. During the defence of Duke Barrick's Castle from marauding armies of Goblins and other such miscreants a vast portal opens above the city and tears it into another dimension. The city finds itself in a valley surrounded by insurmountable cliffs and beneath the baleful eye of an eternally shining Sun.
So 4 adventurers are chosen to explore this new world to try and find an answer to their predicament.

Now I agree the story is lacking certainly but the gameplay more than made up for this. With it's mix of combat styles (that being Gold Box turn-based style when in the field and Eye of the Beholder style when in dungeons) and a multitude of lands to explore the game was, in my most humble of opinions, fantastic.

Any other lovers of the game out there? ... uys3GNebCg

Entertainment / Transformers: Prime

I'll admit it, I love Transformers.
Not the terrible celluloid pr0n that Michael Bay but the cartoons and toys.
I have avoided the more recent cartoons since accidentally catching an episode of Energon and wishing I could UN-see it.
I happened across a trailer for Prime while looking at reviews of Fall of Cybertron on the PS3 and am now, a week later, nearing the end of season 2 and it has been pretty damned good!
It follows on from the end of the game Fall of Cybertron and basically you have a handful of Autobots and Decepticons on earth fighting for Energon but early on Megatron finds Dark Energon which is the life's blood of Unicron.
I don't want to say too much as it would be easy to let slip spoilers but any fans of Transformers should try it out! ...

Hi all

Post 1 is always the worst isn't it.... :)
I have about 200 MD games now and still rising but it is limited by room more than anything.
My daughter has shown an interest in my games but today was great as she achived a 4th Place score on Afterburner the age of 2 lol
Besides gaming I love movies and books and air more towards Asian cinema and fantasy/horror/Lovecraft books :)

So that's me in a nutshell....
