We had an Acorn Electron, I (or my brother) had to listen to the tape carefully, if it started to go quiet/funny, the trick was to press the rewind button for a fraction of a second so the load could continue.

Although maybe that was from sheer frustration at those starfish things in Metropolis.

I hated that whole zone :-(

I think it was the only one to have 3 acts as well.

neuroniky - IIRC the list allowed the inclusion of games that were released near the end of 2004 but were most played in 2005.

oopss...I thought we were allowed to include any game we played most during 2005 regardless of release date. Oh well :-)

"Ooh are the new Gameboy (advanced, Ds, whatever?) Castlevanias any good? As good as SOTN? Why don't they make a greta 2D 'vania on the big consoles using all the graphics power to make a great looking 2d game!!"

No idea yet, two of the GBA Castlevania's should be winging their way here as we speak, and the DS version isn't out in Europe till the end of September (but it does look good :-)

Nope.

1) Bit too pricey
2) I have a PS2, and the games are either ports of, or similar to, PS2 games
3) It doesn't come in pink
4) It doesn't have Castlevania
5) I have a DS! (guess what colour)

Cassette gaming is back

Twinkle

Brings back memories of trying to load games on the Acorn Electron. Don't know if its similar to C64/Spectrum but you had to hook up a tape player to the thing. Then play the tape which sounded like a demented donkey.

EEEEEEEEEHHHAAAAAAAWWWWWWW......EEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHAAAAAAWWWWWWW

Which was bad enough, but our tape player was duff, so someone had to sit by it and as soon as we heard it going "wrong" (quite often), you had to press rewind for a split second (carefully, so the game load didn't fail) until it sounded right again.
