  1. I just purchased myself a great, seemingly brand new copy, of the seminal (at least for me) F-19 Stealth Fighter.

     

    Now what I wondered before I try and buy an Amiga with min 1mb ram and 1.5mb HDD I was wondering if there was an emulator for PC that would allow me to utalise my floppy drive.

     

    This may well be one of the most unusual requests I have made, but that is just the way it goes somedays. I use XP.


  2.  

    yeah it is a paradox but its great to think it though and there is a lot more to it than that its all down to Donnie, he a hero!

    Certainly it is more than just a basic ending, which certainly deserves exploration, but it is fundamentally a paradox, thus probably best used as a great place for people to explore more complex philosophy - this film is a great example of how philosophy can be explored by a quality script and director.

     

    I really do recommend films like Adaptation if you want films that make you think, and dissect... I would also highly recommend something like Heaven or Dirty Pretty Things which are both lovely in their execution yet don't try to solve any issues within there own limited, filmic, boundaries. Thinking slightly more mainstream, Gattaca also manages to raise some very important issues whilst maintaining the integrity of cinema; ham fisted philosophy like Reloaded certainly does not (but that’s probably a whole other debate).


  3. I thought the combination of DC pad and stilted gaming mechanics failed miserably. The original was best, it was cutting edge. In terms of developing a great initial idea, the most recent editions for Gamecube would seem to be the money.

     

    I think however that perhaps the series needs to develop itself in a more revolutionary, rather than its current evolutionary way. I wonder if the On-Line idea will work, I am not sure not being able to communicate with your online buddies will make it a full and rewarding online experience at all.


  4. they wasted a lot of potential for a good funny movie
    I have to disagree with your assertion that there was any such potential. It was an awful idea from its conception and clearly only designed as an exploitative money making enterprise - which is fine, but lets not go about thinking it had potential.

     

    Tomb Raider was a poor effort also but was a title that may well of had some potential, the style of game though borrowed heavily from the Indiana Jones movies and it could be argued to have been a game based (loosely) on a film which became a film again.

     

     

    The main problem with these projects is they start with exec's saying - "let's develop this franchise, expand it if you will, into a movie. We really need to develop the (add Branded game here) into a total consumer experience" rather than a creative type saying " I've got a great idea for a film".

     

    See?!


  5. I just hit a link on kazza verifieds for the Divx version...

     

    I should be able to tell you what i think of it in about a week :wink:

    <ight I suggest DC++ for movie downloads...

     

    P.S... the ending = paradox, nothing more or less than that. If you liked that film try Punch Drunk Love and Adaptation.


  6. I doubt even Sony can dent Nintendos stranglehold in the handheld market. I hope they don't anyway because if they do then Nintendo will most likely die

    Hopefully it will stir nintendo into a much less lazy handheld development. Fewer ports of snes tites.


  7. Quite a few people on the emu forums don't seem to have any game shares. I think this may well be down to bad scripting rather than no actual shares. I wonder if this is a deliberate attempt to avoid having to do the old uploading thing. Please do not forget that uploading should be an inevitability that everyone is resigned to; it keeps P2P alive.
