Quoting: PenglingDid someone say Bomberman? I'm there!

Love the music in the trailer, too - it reminds me very much of tunes from Jazz Jackrabbit and similar.
N-n-n-n-n-no....... No one said Bomberman...... Your just hearing things....... Now go back to sleep......

The Games I Have Played On This List.........

art of rally: Really damn good rally game with a great visual twist...... The graphics are awesome and the handling is also very good...... Took some time for me to get the controller settings the way I liked..... But there are plenty of options to help you to dial it in to your liking....... Lots of stages and cars (none of them are officially licenced) should keep you entertained for many hours.......

Runs flawlessly on Proton.......

And that is why my final rating for art of rally is a pastel painting out of 10.......


WRC 10 FIA Rally Championship: A very competent mass market officially licenced rally game....... Not the most realistic handling model but still enough detail and feedback to know what your doing...... Again lots of options to dial in a controller...... The stages look amazing with a really nice level of detail in them....... The car models are not as well done especially the classic cars.... Some of them are downright awful......... Packed with plenty of stages, cars and a nice career mode this game should keep you entertained for quite a while......

Runs great on Proton but I did need to change to DX11 from the default DX12 in the games options menu as DX12 caused a lot of stuttering......

And that is why final rating for WRC 10 FIA Rally Championship is a Martin Schanche out of 10........


WRC 9 FIA Rally Championship: A very slight step down from WRC 10 in almost every way....... As per usual with these annual sequels the games are very similar but there are always very slight differences between the games...... I personally think WRC 9s handling is a bit worse than WRC 10...... The career mode is almost the same and most of the stages are very similar as well........ Still lots to do but if you have WRC 10 theres not really many reasons to have this installed as well.......

Runs great on Proton......

And that is why my final rating for WRC 9 FIA Rally Championship is a Mikko Hirvonen out of 10......
Really good but not quite good enough.......

Quoting: kuhpunktJust a random question. How do you guys pronounce TR1X when you read/say it? Tee Are One Axe? Tricks?
As an old school UB3R L337 5P34K3R........ My first instinct is to pronounce it as "Trix"........

Quoting: scaineOne of the last games I ever bought for my Spectrum was called Fat Worm Blows a Sparky. Nope, nothing to do with the article, or Linux. Just putting it out there.
Sounds like the title of a late night movie on Skinemax.....

Quoting: Purple Library Guy"Metal Slug 4" . . . OK, why were there four games about a slug made of metal? I guess it's a sort of interesting superhero concept, like Earthworm Jim, but four games?

Just a quick dumb sketch in one of my notebooks - pardon the lighting.

The name "Worminator" brought back memories of this TV commercial here in Australia back in the 90's........

(What Would Jack Thompson Do?)
File frivolous lawsuits, make false statements, and get disbarred.
At the time I was really confused when all that was happening...... Because theres a quite famous Australian actor named Jack Thompson......... And I was really confused as to how an Australian actor was disbarred in America....... Till I realised it was a different Jack Thompson........
