Joe nice shout on hellfire,i love that game still have my original import copy from i think 1990..good god i feel old have to ask though do you have a pal copy or jpn?The only reason i ask is the art on the jpn release is awesome and sort of reminds me of gleylancer a game i stupidly swapped back in the day...different story for another day though.

I totally agree Shadow mate it is indeed a good collection,lots of classics and the unlockables are a lovely touch..just a shame ive just bought Fantasy Zone for the saturn and the bloody arcade version is an unlockable.Never mind you can never have to much Fantasy Zone and im looking forward to getting into the phantasy star and shining series.

Just bought the sega megadrive ultimate collection for xbox 360 and Thunderforce gold pack 1 on saturn,at some point in the future i will get a decent camera and start posting pics.I also need to get a few pics of the collection taken at some point to post in the collections forum.
Indeed Outrun also has a fantastic soundtrack Greyfox,nothing like rolling to some splashwave or magical sound shower on a rainy day to cheer yourself up and get a smile on your face.Outrun 2 with the remixes of classic outrun tunes also hits the spot,and Elevator Action Returns has a typical zuntata funky beat especially level 3.
For some reason i often wake up to the Dodonpachi soundtrack in my head as well(maybe im finally surrendering my sanity) does anyone else wake up to game soundtracks playing in their head?
While talking with a few mates about our favorite game soundtrack i realised mine is Castlevania Symphony of the Night without a shadow of a doubt.
Living away in digs in shitehole town the only escape was tanking cheap stella a few spliffs and many a good game night,and it was so many moons ago living in salford and partaking of multiplayer worms and spying through the haze of a woodbine i heard the spectacular awesomeness of symphony of the night's phenomenal aural delights for the 1st time.This would begin an appreciation...nay obsession of the soundtrack to this also awesome game.I'm sure all of us on this fine forum have succumbed to rabid near crazy behaviour to get that,which we covet most... as a soundtrack...awesome...as a game?
So fellow forumites what is YOUR fave game music/soundtrack?

I was in two minds as to wether what im currently playing can be classed as retro but thought what the hell. Dodonpachi resurrection on xbox360 and outrun 2,which isnt retro per se but feels old school.And i know this sounds insane but im finding that on normal settings Dodonpachi resurrection feels easier than dodnpachi on saturn.
Anyhow i know there is debate as to what constitues a retro game as old school games(especially bullet hell shooters) are a refined throwback to those long gone(in the west at least) days when you could watch mesmerised as someone tried to 1cc the bastard of a shooter that seemed impossible.
Shame you dont live near me zapiy i would have most definitly taken a few of them off your hands,anyway they arrived sometime in the last 3 hours(does anybody have a postie who calls in the morning anymore?) so im looking forward to having a good look through them tonight.
Yeah same here shadow i had 3 wardrobes full of mags from the mid 80s through until 95 ish until my mother made me bin them.Looking on ebay for how much it would cost to buy back all of them was an eye opener,damn my mother
Im totally looking forward to seeing how much of my memories of those days are actually real and what rose tinted specs have embellished them to be.
While pondering on ebay the other day i decided to have a look at what old computing/games magazines were on there,and was blown away when i noticed the 1st gaming magazine i ever purchased as a kid.A 1986 copy of atari user in pristine condition and was overcome with nostalgia and thought what the hell ...roll on today and i realised it's a sodding bank holiday.So im know feeling like a kid at christmas counting down the days until i can rip the wrapping off.
Ah well happy easter all.
Retro Back in the 80s/90s it was all code until 94/95 and i just could not take it in it was very different.That was when programming c was literally brand new.A lot changed back then with the emergence of 32 bit hardware.
