The God who Peter Molyneux forgot

AllenSpawn

Similar thing happened to me.....well, not similar at all really:

I sent in some tips for Kung Fu Master into Commodore User, back in '86 I think.
The magazine said that any tips published, would win a free game of their choice. After mine were published, I received no contact from them, so rang them myself, but was just passed from pillar to post. I tried about 5 more times over the next 3 months, and was told it would be on its way, when they dealt with it.
I gave up in the end.
Never did get my copy if Green Beret.
And to think of all those tens of people I must have helped with the Kung fu master bosses.

Still got a copy of the mag for posterity though :-)

Ha! Just dusted off my rock band 2 gear, 2 weeks ago, to get my 10 year old daughter involved.
Trying to teach her about rock bands and not Taylor Swift/x factor wannabes.

Still a great game!

Games of 2014: Destiny

AllenSpawn

3 years ago

Completing the vault of glass, was my favourite gaming moment this year.

After joining a clan, and using the destiny app to find groups, it's been very easy to find parties to do it.

What surprised me the most was how pleasant everyone on line was/is.
If someone wasn't high enough level or wasn't au fait with the nuances or the mechanics of the atheon fight (usually me :-)), someone was always willing to talk them through it, and hand hold them.
Good community.

I spent 12 on a cinema ticket last week, for a 2 hour film that I didn't particularly enjoy.
I spent 2 hours on Dark Below last night , and still haven't seen either strike or 1 of the pvp maps.
I feel like im going to get my 20s worth.

Assassin's Creed Rogue review

AllenSpawn

@Dave797
"Being an assassin in any historical setting is a goldmine for a gaming series and yet not one AC game has really nailed the story angle. "

I really enjoyed Brotherhood, set in Rome. And thought the setting and story were unparalleled in the assassins creed canon.

A guide to gaming's most valuable treasures

AllenSpawn

4 years ago

I've had most consoles since the Commodore 64, and I've always sold all of them for next to nothing , when the new shinier one turned up.

I kept my snes and the games I acquired for it , because most of the games were imports.
I had a look through what I had left the other day, and to see some values on ebay. And the few games I have aren't doing to badly value wise.
Axelay (jap)
UN Squadron (us)
TMNT turtles in time (us)
Castlevania
Tiny toons(us)
Contra spirits(us)
Paradious (jap)
And more..all in good knick.
Didn't realise how much I was sitting on :-)

Not quite Whirlo though....

iPhone 6 and Apple Watch revealed

@frunk
I have a pebble....and I love it.
But it has always felt like a stop gap until the apple watch came along.
The pebble , as great as it is , feels like a smart watch beta.
It's because I love the pebble so much. I can't wait to step up to a fully fledged colour/touch screen smart watch.
Day 1 for me.

Phone...schmone. Don't care so much about that.

Don't know why you're getting negged. I thought the same thing, when I saw it.
Not that it's a bad thing. I thoroughly enjoyed soul suspect.
