  1. Not strictly speaking J-Rock but Guitar Wolf are pretty cool.
  2. The OAVs? They were great but I thought the movie was pretty low budget and tacky. I'll put in some more support for Urusei Yatsura. The first movie is classic, like a a 50's MGM screwball comedy / musical re-write of Star Wars.
  3. Finished PGR2 over the weekend so could you replace that with Ring Of Red? Cheers. This is agony by the way. PoP and Beyond Good and Evil out on X-box. FFX-2 out on PS2 (thought that'd break me but I've managed to resist), with R-type Final out by the end of the month... ARGH!! Just thought I'd share that.

    Ramones, Screeching Weasel, Devil Dogs. That'd be it really. If "Wolf" was as good as "I Get Wet" then AWK would be up there too. I had a bunch of shittily copied tapes of AC/DC albums when I was about thirteen and they were great. But then I went through a bizarre phase of refusing to listen to stuff with guitar solos for about five years. Go figure.
  5. You might want to wait for Castle Of Shikigami 2 or Psyvariar 2 (unless you're after DC exlusives).
  6. That bit in Superman. "You can fly Oh my!" or some such bollocks.
  7. Not sure how metal any of this stuff is, but it's probably as metal as emo ever will be and its served me well when I'm in a bad mood... Shellac : 1000 Hurts - crazy technical riffage + sarcastic lyrics + weedy bloke shredding his vocal chords to shit howling. Dead and Gone - The Beauticians Daughter - slow, sinister broken up hardcore with insanely negative lyrics Negative Approach : Tied Down - fast, dumb, old school hardcore with insanely negative lyrics No Means No : The Day Everything Became Nothing / Small Parts Isolated and Destroyed - melodramatic, technical, progressive hardcore with insanely negative lyrics h
  8. Finished FFX at last, so could you take that off and swap it for PGR2? Thanks,
  9. Chronotrigger - it's more concise, FF6 has this ridiculous meandering plot: Script writer 1: The game is 10 hours to short. Script writer 2: Oh... Uh. The party get split up and Ceres (??? - long times since I played it) wakes up on some island alone somewhere. Script writer 1: What does she fight there? Script writer 2: Squirells with radiation posioning. Look at the time, I'm buggering off home. - still a great game tho.
  10. Thats a bloody disgrace. I can live with borders, they've never really bothered me (used to own an ST!), but sound being out of sync is unforgiveable.
  11. I think that was the problem. Not even Elite from tape on a BBC took 5 HOURS to load...
  12. I never got out of Midgard either. But then I never finished Arcadia... (20 hours or so in, I might go back, might not). For what it's worth, as much as I liked the story and setting in Skies, the random battles really spoilt it for me. Not the fact there were random battles, or any of the usual complaints, but the fact that they were just a case of tapping A mindlessly till you got back to the map screen. There was very little actual gameplay outside of the bosses and ship to ship battles. I need to replay FF7 tho...
  13. Right then: Finally managed to beat the final boss on Otogi so could you replace that with Tenchu: Wrath Of Heaven? Cheers.
  14. To truly complete all of FF you have to play through Chocobo's Magic Dungeon...(1 and 2, mind)
  15. Huh? No... He hasn't even got an RF lead and the only controller we have in the house is a knackered Mega Drive pad. He's bound to knick the power lead off the kettle as well...

    How could I forget! The guy on the top of the train that morphs into that giant wolf thing was awesome stuff. Never could get past the one where you're on the boat being driven by that wierd, bald teddy bear thing though.
  17. There was a PD platform game called Entombed which I think was ST only. Kind of like a scrolling Rick Dangerous. It was frikkin solid but also great fun and had pretty decent graphics too. And Grav. A thrust / oids rip off which may have been a commercial release (not sure). My housemates just bought an ST off someone at work for a fiver, but without TV leads, mouse, joysticks, etc.

    Good bosses: The first boss in R-type. Even though it only takes about 5 seconds to kill, it was one of the first games I played with end of level bosses in. I remember seeing it on all the box art and thinking it looked cool months before I finally played the game. Splatterhouse, can't remember what level but the boss is just a room full of giant leeches. Thousands of them. Ikk! That massive red thing at the end of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. Bad bosses: Michizane in Otogi. You can fall off the platforms : instant death. He can knock you back about 50ft so it's impossible to fly back to the platforms in time : instant death. He can blow up the platforms you stand on : instant death. He can...
  19. "Marvel will publish new comic books introducing the EA characters. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed." Urge... to kill... rising... Rip off a bunch of games that have already been made by a different company with an already existing roster of much loved characters? EXCELSIOR! ... I try not to be negative, but really, this is absurd.
  20. MvsC2 was one of the reasons I bought a Dreamcast. Now I have a reason to never buy another console ever again. Woo! Think of the money I'll save.
  21. Robotron? What about Defender? That's pure insanity, playing it in the arcade was like paying for your own arse handed to you on a plate...
  22. About £1000 a year for the past four years. And this January? £250 give or take.
  23. Japan has massive comics and animation industries though. America and Europe don't, so there's never going to be the same pool of talented artists floating around. Hence the Quantum Redshift cover.
