WHAT PLAY YOU?

Recommended Posts

Linkage for Mugen:

 

http://www.mugenation.com/ - Has plenty of characters, stages and a couple of guides on how to use it.

 

http://www.shinmugen.net/

 

http://www.mugenguild.com - Currently down, but it's about the best site there is for characters and stages.

 

http://ngmc.retrogames.com/ - Not a massive range of stuff but very thorough and faithful conversions (certain creators feel the need to 'customise' their versions of characters, he doesn't do this), he's done a truckload of fancy looking SNK stages too.

 

Oh, I should note that it's DOS based. I'm still using good ol' windows 98 y'see. I'm sure there'll be another version that XP people can use though.

Guest Snitsky Owes The Warlord

I'm struggling thru the monstrosity that is WMXXI for the Xbox, But then I'm enjoying life on Tiger Woods 2005 on my DS.Also GT4 and Midnight DUB3 3 on both systems is keeping me awake at nights. Cant beat a bit of multiplayer goldeneye in dr.no's retreat though.

FIFA Street (Gamecube), and occasionally playing Rollercoaster Tycoon on PC, but given that my laptop is a couple of years old, it doesn't handle it well at all.

Metal Slug 1-5/X via Neo Geo emulator. Myself and friend, pad each, ten credits, see how far we get. Great fun

We have Metal Slug 2 for the office MVS cabinet. It rules. On my own, I can get to stage 5 on one credit. My record's about 1,600,000, I think. :smug:

Final Fantasy X (PS2)

I gave up on finding the Cacti
Finding them's easy! Beating them isn't. If you want a challenge, try going back to the village you start in.I'm currently playing Metroid Prime and Resident Evil Zero, both on GC. Metroid Prime's fun and very addictive but a bit vacuous. I'm currently stalled on the last boss. But it will die. Soon. :angry:Resi Zero's OK but really just more of the same. The design feels a bit lazy in places. If you played the earlier games, you'll like this, and if you didn't, you won't. Resi 4's in the post.Anyone played Devil May Cry 3? Any thoughts? I think I probably need to pick it up.

Ooh, sounds like a challenge. I can get fairly deep into the first game on 1 credit, haven't tried a 1 credit challenge on number 2.*Gets to work*.

Devil may cry 3 is awesome if you like mindless gore and violance with a rocking soundtrack!I am playing Star War Episode III that came out today, it's cool and you can do some really neat things with the light saber. I am looking forward to unlocking the two player duals and bonus misson where you play as Darth Vader :thumbsup:

I'm still hooked on Star Wars: Battlefront. Especially the multiplayer game. The splitscreen cloud city platform level is so much fun to play with a friend.I'm also working my way through Tiger '05 and Halo 2 - and soon hope to purchase Lego Star Wars and WMXXI.

Still plowing my way through careers on Fifa 2005 & Tiger Woods 2005. When I've got my buddies round we always play Free 4 All mode on NHL 2005. So much fun and so addictive.

I was real dissapointed with NHL 2005, just seemed way too easy.
Yeah it's not great, but Free 4 All is a lot of fun with 3 or 4 mates playing.

Also recently been working on Brothers In Arms and as always the ever trusty Tiger Woods 2005

First attempt, died mid way through stage 3. Actually died on the first stage, very careless start. Stage 2, mummified once, no deaths, the boss/tower set piece is palm sweatingly tense with just one credit to play with. I'm going to keep going at this. Should at least get to stage 3 without losing a life next time, the first two stages are actually easier than I thought. It certainly puts a different slant on things playing with one credit though, I find myself taking much greater care. Oh, and I'm making sure to collect every pig, frog and other freak collectible to attack that score too. :D

and I've gone back to playing GTA: Vice City again

I've never played any of the GTA games. What is it that makes them so popular?Someone told me its kind of like Spiderman 2, in that you run/drive around a city do various missions. Is that right?

You can choose to go on a simple killing spree if you want or you can do all the missions. Buying property and killing whores is fun.

Essentially it is travelling around the cities and doing missions, but there's scope to do plenty more. You can bet on horses, gamble in casinos, buy and sell cars, do minigame work as a cabbie, fireman, paramedic, valet or vigilante police officer. Kill random people, assault police officers, go on a rampage, learn to fly a plane, play pool for money. Go the gym and get your character buffed up... go to junk food establishments and make him eat until he's sick and then slob around until he gets fat. Buy some properties, assemble a posse and go and claim some gang territory for extra income. Get a girlfriend, buy nice clothes and accessories for your character, get whichever car you've stolen customised and fitted with hydraulics, nitros then enter races with it etc etc.So yeah, lots to do.

We should get some online emulation going again some day.Currently I'm not playing a lot due to uni (LAST EXAM TOMORROW!) but recently I've been having mammoth multi-player sessions on Mashed - massively underrated game.I've also just got Lumines for the PSP which looks awesome, so I'll be playing that soon. Wipeout Pure on the way as well.And I still have to make a start on GTA San Andreas and play Donkey Konga, both of which have sat there since the day I bought them.
