Maybe the best music on the Commodore 64? well its mighty fine for sure… Moles have all the fun…


#102

The amazing REV’s for the Commodore 64 is this weeks review, how does it stand up??


#103

This week its Sturmwind, one of the new batch of recent games released for the old Dreamcast, its a rather brilliant shump… boom!


#104

Great fighter with Samurai Shodown II for the Neo Geo. For the first time I also have a special guest with Todd from Todd’s Nerd Cave, he also spends a few minutes talking about his memories.


#105

Didnt hold out much hope for this one, I was wrong, its great!


#106

Well Mega Man stunk and nobody watched it :wink: so hoping for better luck this week :slight_smile:

Have a special guest with Neil from RetroManCave giving his feelings on the game, so really happy he gave his time to the show…


#107

This week I take a look at Dropzone for the Commodore 64, now amazing as at the time a arcade conversion normally would mean a poor comparison… but not this time, you could argue (please do argue below :slight_smile: ) Dropzone is better than the Defender it looks to copy…

Show is 6 months old today, no cake though… its been a little ride…

Felt this game though had aged somewhat, just feels a little to choppy for its own good… impressive at the time, maybe a little hard to swallow now.


#109

Can I confirm if anybody reads this :slight_smile:

This could be the best beat those suckers up ever!!


#110

I had that for PS1. I remember taking it to a friend’s house and he tore his thumb open on the Dpad trying to play.


#111

Guess he got a little carried away then :slight_smile:


#112

Those PlayStation d-pads were not well-suited to fighting. I still think they suck.


#113

Dreamcast D-Pad aint no better, but least we have the Arcade Stick to make us super battlers :wink:


#114

The Dreamcast one was at least one solid piece of plastic above the controller face. It wasn’t great, but it was at least possible to do a consistent fireball motion with it. Better for the Neo Geo games than Capcom ones, though due to only four face buttons.

But yeah, I bought a joystick. :slight_smile:

Yeah Street Fighter EX + alpha left a permanent callous on my thumb, which actually turned out beneficial in the long run.

@BackInTimeSime you mention this a bit but do you like Capcom’s more cartoon stylized SNK characters? I think they did a great job with it, but I can’t say if it’s any better or worse than the SNK vs Capcom sprites for Capcom characters, which was also fantastic.

I do like the darker SNK look I have to admit, SNK vs Capcom on the MVS is pretty interesting seeing what SNK did with more control, shame the backgrounds where so lifeless… I have the MVS kit of SNK vs Capcom, I should take another look at that soon…

Why is the callous beneficial? :slight_smile:


#117

Had a little vote on the Facebook group for what to review next… this winner was…


#118

Nice! I have the disc for this one… I’ll have to bust it out soon.


#119

BONUS BONUS BONUS, yep there is a might lot of that… but best shooter on the Geo… yer, it is…
