Just came on here to read a message from another user and I find out that people are saying what I said nearly a year ago, that the owners don't care or pay attention.

This site has been dead for a while and everyone has spent their time poking it with a stick hoping it will do something; I stated a long time ago with NO back up how I felt about the site and I get it smashed back in my face!

  • After following the Phoenix train to its next destination, I have learnt that all stock was sold off in 2010.

    Stock was made to order (most of the time), I then got a name of their distributor as well as a contact.

    Unfortunately though, the CEO/President of Phoenix Games Paul Share, has unfortunately passed away. Say what you want about Phoenix Games, but at least they had an admirable vison.

  • Out of sheer curiosity, I have recently been studying Phoenix Games with an undying level of interest; after doing so, I have managed to find an insane amount of information through talking with ex-staff members, prior Phoenix owned/rented sites and companies within the surrounding area.

    Learning quite a bit.

  • Not sure why I didn't get Sonic Generations sooner, but either way, they somehow managed to make the classic soundtracks sound even better.

    Chemical plant zone was already awesome, but they made it better! Not the Modern remix, but the classic remix for real!

    Even stardust speedway is made better! What the hell?

  • The answer to the ultimate question is 42.

    My PS1 collection's completion percentage is 42.

    Ergo, the ultimate question is 'What is the completion percentage of Durst's PS1 collection.

    Bit underwhelming really...

  • Don't you just love it when you order something New and in original packaging and it comes used and plucked beyond belief?

  • That's correct.

    If you click on the title Battle Frenzy, there is a segment under a few details where you get A.K.A titles.

    You'll get another example of this if you search for the game Three Lions for the PS1, it has an insane number of titles..

  • Came back to talk with someone briefly and then thought I'd treat myself to reading a review on the forum.

    What happened?

    Password needs to be changed due to nefarious activities (which I called by the way) and no reviews for two months.

    Did everyone just stop caring?

  • For all newcomers and long time members, join the 52 game challenge and see if you can get 52 games finished by the end of the year!

    You may be saying 'But Durst, I am a month late to the party!' but I don't care! I did 52 in a MONTH so I'm sure you'll be just fine.


    Get on it and start finishing those games you SAID you'd play!

  • No problem, if you need certain titles, just have a look through the for sale and trade threads and see if you can find what you need; the N64/SNES collectors unite will also be good for conversational purposes and hopefully find you awesome prices for what you need.

    Welcome to the forums!

  • My whole collection was destroyed by troubled family members a couple of years ago. It's no use crying over spilled milk, as they say. Used to have a big collection of rare games and goodies, as my parents had a video game store during the SNES / N64 era.

    I'll be fine, though. Picked up a SNES and N64 today and I'm already working on getting the essential games! Thanks for asking, though!

  • First tutorial segment of the creative centre is up:


    More to follow in the future, but please remember that these are guidelines and that you will certainly have a different view when it comes to reviewing.

    Have your own thing to say to help others write? Place it in the forum topic and give out your big tips!

  • The RC Creative Centre is now LIVE!


    Here you can request advice and submit your unfinished work for completion; if it's creative and you need help, this is your topic.

    If anyone can think of any rules to add, fire away! We want this to be the best it can possibly be for everyone!

  • Hi all,

    Just curious as to whether or not it's a good idea to put up a creative forum or something similar where those that wish to contribute to the site can discuss what they're writing, seek other view points etc.

    Some people may want to write a review, but may feel a little worried about doing so; a post like this on the forum could help people get more info and see the viewpoints of others.

  • No, I know opnions are different from each and every person, but if you can sit there and tell yourself that Goldeneye on N64 is a BETTER game that 007 Nightfire on GC, you are so, so, very wrong.

    In fact, almost every bond game after Goldeneye was better! Don't believe me? Buy em! They're only about £2 a game! Prove me wrong and I'll pay you back! (Don't buy 007 racing...)

  • May be writing a WGGIWW for the so-called 'Immersive' MYST.

    I'll only be able to finish the thing if I can calm down as every time I start typing about this game, a day drops off of my life and I get livid.

    I would however like to know if people out there like this game and, if people actually get anything out of it, if so, please message me and I'll look harder to see if I am missing something.

    Failure is not an option.

    Also, does anyone know if Pondis is okay? Worried about him. If nobody has any quarrels, I'd like to suggest a post for Thursday's top Three.

    Either way, I hope he is doing alright.
