I thought, I had to put a case together or that a "solve now" button would pop up a la Professor Layton! Almost glad it didn't, you float around this - evening starting at the end, and work your way backwards!

Go on devs, blur the line between game and TV/film some more in 2016!

Thanks Dan, good piece! Retro gaming, is best with games like Pacman DX I feel! 'Netflix for retro games' is something I would pay a 5 for a month, if it was truely comprehensive! That is the solution. I understand that often publishers don't know exactly what IP they own in terms of retro titles - so sad!

Elite: Dangerous review

gammonbanter

3 years ago

It seems that all that's wrong with 'Dangerous' is what's right with No Man's Sky!

I played Elite 2 to death when I was a teenager, and loved every minute of it - me and friends of my ilk still relay out stories of adventures had! However, this seems like more of the same.

Playground chat used to be filled with "how cool would it be to buy space stations and conquere planets!?" this addition might get me back in the cockpit - if only to satisfy my 14 old self!

Will the new generation of gamers get 'shitted up' like the first gamers who played this in the late 90's?

I'd never experienced anything like it at the time, and boy did I have a crush on Jill (based on 15 seconds of rubbish fmv and the image on her I'd badge).

As a Londoner I would happily pop into the expo on a Thursday afternoon and have a quick look around, play any game with a short queue and then pop off and smash the best curry in town on the Earl's Court road.

Why anyone would travel more than 20 minutes to visit the expo in whatever city is beyond me.

Looking forward to Rezzed!

Plenty of decent schools in Hammersmith as it is, go away!
