    Ooo i neglected retro thread

    Well i'm currently playing two retro remakes, so i'll link them again here to see if I can start the ball rolling a bit

    N.O.M.A.D [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] a remake for the speccy game of the same name as made by tck here on the board

    and typhoon 2001 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] a tempest / tempest 2000 remake which dirty girl recommended and linked to in a thread in the puzzle section

    Both games are excellent and should be experienced for those unfamiliar with the originals, and are worth checking out by those already fans

    I often play

    Chuckie Egg

    And just recently resurected Super Aleste for the SNES.

    Also to add, if people consider the DC a retro console, I have just been leant one and making my way through the Sonic games.

    Cheers....Q

    Yes, Typhoon2001 is tops... excellent and free (PC download link above). I love it to bits.

    Geowars (xbox 360 and PC) is also very good, but bloody hard! Link to Google Vid...

    I'm mostly playing small online games at the moment as the missus won't allow me to fire up the 360.

    Right now it's Hunger Strike, which is similar to Tower Defense: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Won't make me want to eat the thing, though. I almost have bad dreams about beans after playing it.

    I'm with you 100% here- well- I just finished phantom hourglass on the ds, but, my all time fave is the black and white gameboy one, "Link’s Awakening" I LOVED it SO much- been meaning to re- play it for ages.
