Looks very promising as a source material.
Let's hope it doesn't go to some useless hack like Michael Bay :(

Last night we watched The Ghoul (2012) based on the horror novel by Brian Keene.
Book was pretty good but the film massacred it :(
Also watched Dredd which I thought was pretty good but lacked something to make it an easy recommendation.
I believe the excitement was reduced more due to having seen The Raid recently which this felt very much like.

But sadly Robocop can look even worse than on the Apple II. We will all have to take that pain this year...



I believe this was confirmed as standard police armour in the film and not the Robocop Body.
Spectrum is surprisingly well drawn and animated but C64 is a loss less impressive than I remember it being :(
For pure fact it excels my expectations I'd give it to Spectrum!

Even worse were the graphics, colour and preordained parts of M&M3: Isles of Terra on SNES which had terribly bright and childlike graphics.

Gameboy:Universal Soldier

*Cough* Turrican *Cough*  :)
Spiderman 2 on the PS2 which was lovely just to explore the city
The only one that instatntly comes to mind is Star Wars Rogue Squadron III Rebel Strike on the Gamecube which absolutely rocked!

I had a copy on SNES and really didn't like it. The preset party and garish visuals really didn't work for me at all :(

Never played any Might and Magic games on the MD. I did spend lots of time with Kings Bounty.


You need to play it sir.

The 360 Shadowrun game was an online deathmatch only game that was fun for a little while but extremely limited.
Anyone have any other games on MD RPGs that seemed to have gone unappreciated?
I am a massive fan of Fatal Labyrinth and (another of my top 10 games of all time) Might and Magic: Gateway to Another World.
Fatal Labyrinth seemed to have been lambasted due to it's generic gameplay, dull graphics and lack of story but personally, as a lover of Rogue and the like I really like it.
And M&MGtAW, what's not to love there? I know it got pretty good reviews on release but no-one really speaks of it anymore and I have always found it the game that keeps on giving!

Played it but not a big fan at all as it is much to action orientated for me and the combat is just plain awful.
I applaud the variety of choice and the narrative but it just never really worked for me.

Unfortunately it never really got a lot of recognition or love so did slip under many a radar ;)

System 3 really were in the top 5 C64 developers.Always had a soft spot for C64 Myth, whilst the 16 Bit versions looked fantastic, was'nt quite so keen on some of the graphical changes System 3 made, to try and make it look more like a console game.

They were amazing weren't they? Glad to see they are still going, atleast in part :)

Turrican 2 was amazing on the C64, not just for massive boss sprites but the fast shooter parts were beyond anything I had seen before.
Also, Myth: History in the Making had exceptional animation and sound (especially the echo effect on the Hydra level).
As for PS1, Omega Boost was breathtaking and PS2 has to be Shadow of the Colossus!

I think Myth was pretty incredible on the Spectrum too:

Obviously not a patch on the C64 but damn that is impressive for a Spectrum game, I love how clear the sprites are and the Hydra is brilliantly rendered!

Mrs Tachi is very excited too
Reminded me of this one too, which I'm also looking forward to.
