Sure, that + getting better gear and lots of repetition, but still, we are talking about game from 1993 that shipped on 4 single sided floppies?! What do you expect?!

It is one of those games that looked like Blade Runner meet Universal Soldier. And if you border, start killing everything that moves...

A remaining fun factor after the wow factor ran out. Most Bullfrog games have that. Syndicate is the odd one out for me.

Like Nobby said, they might not influence the ending, but other factors in the game.

Makes me wonder if you max both of those out... After playing through, I might go back and exploit bug with Lorik Qui'in and max both sides up to see what happens.

I would extend this to many of the Peter Molyneux titles. Still a big fan of his and the designers that worked with him though. Where would gaming be without their innovation and brilliance though?

Back to Syndicate, I havent reached that 'rinse and repeat' phase yet, but I vaguely remember this. Certainly would have benefited from the sort of AI that Lionhead were messing with during the aborted Project Milo

Playing Micropose Formula One Grand Prix.

Such a good game. This is my first time playing it again and using the F1GP-ED. The features are fantastic. Been playing custom data files from seasons gone by!

The frame rate enhancement is also amazing, game looks so smooth at a higher framerate. Sense of speed in that game always impressed me. I know there is still a lot of love for this one too!

Smarty and the Nasty Gluttons: It's a really fun game.
From what I've played so far. Tight controls, nice graphics and soundtrack. Good to see Amiga still get such professional released.

Beyond a Steel Sky: Didnt have terribly high expectations but after a slow start its proven itself to be a very solid adventure with some food puzzle design and dialogue, lots of fun references to the first game. A worthy follow up.

Spaceventure Beta: Only had a quick go so far but its incredible we actually got something released for this, was a backer back in 2012 and after 8 plus years in making was starting to lose faith its ever coming out.

Had to Ghost + Walk to fix.

Need someone with Decrypting skill to open the safe
containing the Wrex: Family Armor

Got a few 'Renegade' points for Not letting the
Admiral inspect the ship

I did not let him inspect ship either...

I got black shape bodies bug again on Virmire, but thankfully it went away in Lockdown.

By end of the game, F6 was my best friend.

Started with ME2, imported characters from save.

James Pond 2 finished!
But I had to let down Beneath a Steel Sky because of one bug that didn't let me continue the game (it crashed in my A500 with GVP Impact 2 a d SCSI2SD drive)

Several days ago, I began playing OBLITERATOR and I'm really liking it (as a kid I never understood what it had to be done) although I find lots of slowdowns in animations.

ME2 - nice continuation of story from ME1. You have to love and admire Jack.

Story, perhaps. But the gameplay of ME2 utterly sucks. The combat system is just plain ridiculous.

I just replayed ME1 few weeks ago. Twice.

First time on Veteran Difficulty, which unlocked Hardcore difficulty.

Finishing on Hardcore finally unlocked Insanity difficulty. Somehow, I didn't feel like third time is the charm.

I made sure I didn't sacrifice the Krogan, though. It's way more fun with Krogan

Saved Wrex on my second playthrough.

How did you do on Pinnacle Station.

I'm not so hot for speed (Sprint does not seem to work ?)
but on Survival = YAWN = Ages !!!

I am at final mission on ME2, and will have to replay it from save, since Tali got headshot while closing door. Would hate to continue story without her character and will send someone else, perhaps Legion in duct to open door.

I want to complete it as Paragon to process to ME3, which I don't have atm, but will get it eventually. (Probably only Origin from GMG as they are only one with any discount on that game atm)

Seems that Remastered version will be released in month and something. From what I read yesterday, 60 pounds according to some who got it pre-purchased.

Just tried the Mass Effect 2 Demo (needs 70+% off before I'll buy):

The intro is daft...
Joker: Hold on taking evasive action
= Flys straight into a Beam =

Controls are different --- stuck trying to exit the medical bay
No accepting my key presses ?!?!


Removing Mass Effect 1 now to make Space for PREY.
