Having played several versions of this I'd personally recommend the Mega Drive version of Chuck Rock 1 and the Mega CD or Master System version of Chuck Rock 2.

I got 19 as well. I didn't know the Finders Keepers/Spellbound/Black Cauldron game.

I went to see Aladdin at the cinema. I remember the game from back then too as we had a demo on the PC.

More recently I've played it on the:

Game Gear
Master System
Mega Drive

I'm pretty sure I also saw the game mentioned on a TV programme called Movies, Games & Videos back in the day.

Retro Chat / Your Gaming History
« on: August 14, 2014, 01:07:15 AM »
Don't remember if there was a thread like this on this forum. Thought I'd start it after seeing some of the posts in my 386 thread. Mine starts with....

Amstrad PC1512 (1986?) - I doubt any gaming was actually done on this, I just know it was around. It's in a picture from when I was 1 or 2.

286 (1987? - 1991) - It had big round buttons and a really nice LED numeric display. The first game I played was most likely on this. What that was though, I have no idea. Could be Sopwith, Rogue, Alleycat, 3-Demon which I know well from those days. Or possibly one of the more obscure games that I have vague memories of like Beast or Pango. It could even be Boppie's Great Word Chase which apparently we got in Canada - which would make it July 1987.

386 (1991-99?, 2014-) - This was the main machine. The one from the 386 repair thread I made. Most of the old-school PC gaming that I can remember clearly was on this. Commander Keen, Crystal Caves, Jazz Jackrabbit, Galactix, Kilo Blaster, Lemmings, Major Stryker, Lotus, the Dizzy games etc. It was still in use after it was replaced by a newer computer until around 1999.

Game Gear (1994-Present) - Despite all the computers we'd had my parents weren't fans of me or my sister spending lots of time playing video games and refused to buy a console that was specifically for gaming. For years I kept asking for a Master System or Mega Drive. I eventually had to settle for a Game Gear. It was cool at the time though but I only got a few games for it so it didn't have a massive impact on my gaming history. I still have it, caps replaced and in pretty nice condition with the original box.

P166 (1996-2001) - This was a significant upgrade at the time, having completely skipped over the 486. It meant the internet and online gaming. I first tried this with Hellbender and Quake 2 around 1998 I guess. I ended up playing a lot of Quake 2 online, initially with a 28k modem. It also meant getting up at 5 in the morning before school to play Destruction Derby. Oh yeah and CARMAGEDDON - I spent so much time playing that game.

N64 (1998-Present)Various PC's (2001-2010)Various Consoles/Computers (2010-Present) - This is when the whole "retro" thing started. I'd had enough of modern gaming so I bought a nice 21" Trinitron, got my N64 out and so it began. Almost all of the systems in this picture were purchased from October 2010 onwards. The modding started soon after. In 2010 I couldn't use a soldering iron.


Acorn Electron (198?-199?) - Inter-weaved through my early gaming years was the Electron. My dad bought it before I was born. If the first gaming I did wasn't in fact on the 286 then it would have been on this. It was in use until some time in the early 90s when the PSU wire needed fixing. I recently fixed the wire so it is functional. However, like my original Game Gear & N64 it just sits in a box.
Mega Drive/Saturn (2001) - I did actually buy both a Mega Drive and Saturn from Cash Converters in 2001 but didn't really use them at that time.
Dreamcast (2005) - Same as above.
Gamecube (mid-2000's) - My sister bought a Gamecube in 2003 which I played a few games on. I got one a couple of years later but again, didn't play much on it at the time.

Yeah, it's like the Paragon/Renegade system in Mass Effect. Your actions determine your light/dark side-dness.

In Knights of the Old Republic I liked to use a few dark side powers like Force Storm. They use up more force points if you're on the light side though so I tried taking a darker path once in Knights of the Old Republic 2, but I just couldn't do it!

These are the Star Wars games that I own. I haven't played all of them and there are ones that I have played that I don't own.

My top 4 are (couldn't decide on the 5th):

Knights of the Old Republic
Rogue Squadron
Dark Forces
Super Star Wars

I still want a 64DD, Power Glove, Master System 3D glasses and R.O.B.the Robot.

The speedboard is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen though.

Tarzan (N64)

Played this with my new Saturn controller.

The game.....meh, not a lot to say about it except for one bug that I encountered. On the level "Trashing the Camp" I kept finishing the level with 99% over and over again and couldn't figure out why. I eventually watched a couple of videos and found that in a different version (PS1) there were 3 coins where I only saw 1 - turned out they were actually there but invisible. So I was able to get 100% completion but that was lame.

Is this the GX4000 and Burning Rubber?

Can you tell us anything about the motion capture/extra scenes that were shot for Demolition Man on the 3DO?

Extreme-G 2 (N64)

Also did the duel mode to unlock the other extra bike.

Much preferred the first Extreme-G. Didn't like this one much at all. Frame-rate felt lower, track design was horrible and there were more tracks so it just felt tedious. "Let's make a game with really fast bikes, that you can't actually go fast with because we'll make the tracks too narrow with loads of turns". They really went overboard making all these weird squiggly tracks. I've never seen anything quite like it. Most of the tracks were really dark too.
