PostSubject: NGamer Issue 3   28/10/16, 08:11 pm



This time 10 years ago, NGamer was operating at maximum hype level during a month where there was very little actually occurring release-wise. I mean, the main review is an import of Tingle RPG ffs. In fact, a hefty chunk of the reviews this month were import DS games. Personally, I wasn't a fan of this issue, barring the interesting piece on Virtual Console predictions. I did find the Nintendo bias leaves a nasty taste in the mouth - putting Nintendo's finest SNES games up against Altered Beast and Golden Axe (two primitive arcade titles from the late 80s).

Also seeing Lego Star Wars 2 go in as 10th best Gamecube game (Smash Bros Melee at 11th) - what's that all about?!

Has this one been scanned in and made available? I'm going to struggle to take part otherwise (not that I've finished issue 2 yet... Embarrassed ).

I have ripped the DVD for this issue too, but can only find trial versions of DVD ripper software so the video has a big logo in the middle of it. Anybody able to advise of free DVD ripping software (or may have DVD ripping software)? I have Windows 10. Unless somebody wants me to send them the stash of NGamer DVDs I have?

We're nominating Grant for an MBE, right? I don't have any DVD software I'm afraid. Someone else help!!!!!!!!!
[less tired now]
Sorry you were a bit down on this issue - to me, with all of the (reserved) hype, this made me want to subscribe immediately.
Started re-reading this - I can't believe how much I forgot!
Highlights up until page 23::

No, I don't have anything to do with the royal family or the outdated peerage system.I'd vote GJones for president, though (sorry Rum).

YES! Myself and friends used this to take Miis to one another's houses. The likes of Chuck Norris, Mr. T and General Zod, because we were very funny.

To be fair, Excite Truck came out great- as did Mario kart. It was whenever anyone other than Nintendo tried to do motion steering . . .

I've not downloaded this yet, but I remember the print issue quite well. This was when I was starting to get really hyped for the idea of the Wii, if not really the launch line-up. I can also remember seeing the screenshots of Far Cry Vengeance back in 2006 and thinking 'aye, that looks baws'. I'm sure that it got something like 25% in the review a few months afterward (which was well-deserved, as I found out later).

Anyway, more thoughts to come once I get it downloaded. Cheers for starting this up again gjones Thumbs Up!

Into the reviews section now - I forgot the legendary orange in a shopping trolley! And actually I forgot all about Tingle's Rosy Fresh Something. Actually I wish I played it; I might grab an old copy somewhere. *looks on Amazon and eBay* ha ha ha ha ha silly me.

Aye - 'tis difficult keeping up!

I sure miss "alternatively stupid" reviews - Kittsy going out to learn what Mahjong is all about; Chrissy suggesting the art game is theraputic for recovering alcoholics.

And of course the usual unnecessary asides; bulk copying dumb YouTube and website comments. Not in this issue, but in one of the last NGCs, someone made a Metroid quilt;

Man, it felt like there were a million games coming for the Wii, didn't it? And they all came with the possibility of completely changing the world. What a time to be alive.

Here are some choice turns of phrase:
  • The transparency effects on this planet-within-a-planet will make your teeth fall out.
  • ...the prospect of which should make any Nintendo gamer want to strike themselves in the gut with excitement
  • What's the point of Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis when we'll hopefully be Virtual Console-ing the same game to our Wii for the price of two vegetable pasties, a can of coke and a packet of square crisps.
  • You don't remember Gobots? Rubbish aunts would buy them instead of Transformers, ruining Christmas.
  • It's an anime-based mountain bike racing game that takes place at the pace of a whiskey-addled OAP pottering around Budleigh Salterton.
  • A moped enema would be preferable to playing any more of this game.


And the footnotes in the Yoshi's Island 2 preview are a thing to behold...

Yeah - the old issues are N64-tastic. *sigh* Everything current is entry-level bantz by comparison...

March 2017 marks the 20-year anniversary of N64 magazine (which has been archived digitally). Any interest in this? I'd probably try games via Project 64.
