supersmith2500 28 December, 2012 @ 5:21 pm   2

I would take a closer look to identify but it’s further away and I can’t see properly because the pic is on lock atm. >_<

 

I think I could name a good few of these if I could see the larger picture!

What’s the prize? Internet cookies?

 
supersmith2500 28 December, 2012 @ 5:25 pm   4

Yeah, make the pic public on Flickr so I can see the numbers and make a list.

supersmith2500 28 December, 2012 @ 9:06 pm   24

You know Evo, you guys are awesome with dirt racing games. Now if there’s a another Motorstorm game or dirt-racing game for the Vita.

 

Not really that tricky apart from Aarbron and the Rex from 3DMM. The other ones are generally pretty new and widely known.

For people that haven’t played Aarbron’s game (Shadow of the Beast), I recommend the music from that game.

Shadow of the Beast… on my Vita… make it happen! (In fact, get the entire catalogue of Amiga classics from Psygnosis on the Vita).

Tonight, I will sacrifice something innocent, cute and fluffy to set this dark work in motion. If the Gods will listen, the Vita could become the ultimate retro gaming device.


..

Too bad Reflections lost their imagination and started churning out mediocre game-[DELETED]. R.I.P. oldskool Reflections. (Unfortunately the same can be said about other studios… to think that TT once made Leander… look at the crap they put out these days).

Demoman also looked like a Lord of the Rings Goblin Leader, but got there in the end. :p
