I have all the Road Rashes purely out of nostalgia, never been a huge fan of them.
What I would like to see a reimagening/rehash of though is Paradroid. I loved the game as well as Machine Hunter which always seemed so similar to me and the idea of having the ability to hack and control droids to gain further access into secure areas would work well as an XBL/PSN game i think, kind of on the lines of the old Activision game Hacker.

Although i had a copy (it was in with the superb, DEFCON, still have both sat here, but NO PC), was UPLINK anything like a more modern day 'take' on Hacker?.

Loved Paradroid on C64, had the 'enhanced' ver. which game on the double pack.Never saw a copy of the budget, 'Heavy Metal' edition but loved Paradroid'90 on ST/Amiga.

Did own Magnatron on C64 as well, never quite appealed as much as Paradroid did though.

I bought Uplink from HMV who were one of the few stockists of it in the highstreet and frankly I couldn't make heads or tails of it lol

Since my last post here I've completed...
Blood II: The Chosen (PC)

I absolutely adore that game!
My friend Keith and I used to do LAN MP where one would use an item that grants invisibility and run to hide and the other had to find them. Was such a laugh after copies amounts of alcohol.

I am mid way through the game again now so yeah, it holds well.
Graphically it isn't amazing but the dungeons are well designed, there is masses of hidden things to find and monsters to kill :)

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?

I'm glad he has been confirmed in the role now, Tom Hardy is a fantastically watchable actor and made Lawless a worthwhile watch for me.

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!
