  1. Or Action Force's Lady Jaye. Exactly the same character, but born in Cork.
  2. I just stumbled across an Amiga exclusive title called Ebonstar while looking at scans of AUI June 1988. The warped grid remind me a little of Geometry Wars, without the seizure-inducing explosions (or speed). Reviews mention that it supports up to 4 players on the same machine using a combination of joystick, mouse, and keyboard. I'm surprised there haven't been more Geometry War-style games in recent years. It seems to be a genre that plays to the Amiga's strengths.
  3. Wikipedia suggests the first (only?) series finished a few weeks ago, but I can find only one vague review of the final episode. I'm beginning to think that no one watched The Watch.
  4. Darran should put on some underwear.
  5. This is the biggest find since the Staffordshire hoard! Where's the Time Team when you need them?
  6. Is it really 20 years since All Your Base entered our lives? https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2021/02/get-ready-to-feel-old-the-all-your-base-music-video-turns-20-today/
  7. 408 pages! That's a sizeable tome! Is there a UK distributor by any chance?
  8. I have to admit I prefer the retail covers, particularly the Strider and GnG one. Much better than Final Fight! (sorry mmmonkey). I'd track it down in normal circumstances, but the WH Smiths near me has been closed for months.
  9. Are all of the conversions playable on a real Dreamcast? I recall seeing comments a few months ago that there were freezes/slowdown due to GD-ROM drive access speeds (which is obviously slower than the arcade ROMs), as well as concern it would eventually kill drives due to the continuous data access.
  10. @Thor @Broker I haven't read your entire discussion. Is this the one one to which you're referring? I've just seen it in Sainsburys https://comicscene.org/2021/01/21/wandavision-comic-tie-in-from-panini/
  11. You can't give us half a story. Why did you appear in Games X? The long-running Amiga Future magazine is still in print. It's officially the longest-running Amiga magazine, having been published for over 20 years and beating Amiga Format's record for number of issues. Not bad for a magazine launched in the dying days of the Amiga market. An English and German language edition is published every two months, with an optional coverCD. I used to buy issues from AmigaKit UK, but they seem to have stopped selling it for some reason.
  12. The joke is on them. My Wii Fit board is MISB, in case I break a hip while exercising.
  13. Crusade was a struggle to watch at the time, though perhaps the virus angle will resonate with our Covid times. I quite like Legends of the Rangers (possibly more than Third Space, River of Souls, and Call to Arms). The story is delivered at a reasonable pace, with a good mix of humour and action (with the exception of *that* scene). It's also the last opportunity to see Andreas Katsulas as G'Kar.
