    Single-system mags at the time would re-review games when they came out on budget. Would be interesting to do a comparison between original and budget reviews and see how views changed. 


    Amstrad Action gave Head Over Heels a shocking 62% in 1990, despite it being just as good then as it was when it came out.


    EDIT: I should read the thread before replying :lol: - what earlymodernsteve said.

    Yeah, I had a Sam 'n' Max/Day of the Tentacle White Label double pack (to 'upgrade' my original floppy disk versions), what a set :wub:


    I also got that one for the same reasons. I'd played floppy versions of DotT and the Monkey Island games before that.


    You could also get X-Wing and Tie Fighter collector's CDs on the White Label as well.

    This is cool. I've been talking about doing a visual evolution of videogames in the mag for about 12 years. The idea was to have an image of a game and then bullet points highlighting what it introduced to the genre in question. I never ran it because I didn't think readers would feel it had any value.


    When the readership figures skyrocket, I will accept cash.

    Loving these, but in nearly all the examples the massive jump is between the first two images, then only a bit if finessing* from the second to the third.


    *finessing that's like years and years of work from super-genius-brains in hardware design and engine programming and tool creation and art and design skills, etc.


    I think this is because the late 80s - 90s was such a ridiculous revolution in tech in so many ways, so the initial 20 year jump looked massive.

  5. I've gotten quite addicted to that Civvie11 channel now, as it scratches a very specific itch and they're all very well made. I just hope they don't turn out to be a dickhead like nearly every other gaming YouTuber.

    Not for the first time, @Benny has created a thread with seemingly simple rules to follow and we're all totally lost. :lol: 


    I think only SeanR has got lost so far, from not reading the OP. despite making a post earlier that appeared to be somewhat following the suggestions.


    I just ignored everything I put myself.


    It's not a top 100 anyway, do what you want. I'm not your daddy.



    Until I say I am.
