some people just dont have the taste they were born with...
 
GORF is the ultimate arcade greatest hits type of play three classic games tied with some other dodgy things all for one ten pence type of classic that has never been repeated. It rocks! Well, I've never been sure about the yellow buckfast bottle at the end masquerading as a flagship for the GORFIAN EMPIRE!!!!!

Well, I've never been sure about Gorf full stop! LOL

Dodgy cobbled together piece of rubbish. I can see the board room executive meeting now:

"Ok, take a level from the 3 most popular games, make them less good somehow, then put them all together into a new game... Oh and we need a gimmick to sell this shit. Slap a huge joystick on it, give it the stupidest name in video game history and throw in some digitised speech that's never been done before to excite the nerds, I don't care if it sounds like unintelligible gibberish, it'll sound great when they read it in the brochure" LOL

I'll stop there. Don't wanna take this thread too off topic. We all know the Gorf debate can simply run and run LOL.

Thumbs Up

Was playing Paperboy last night and tonight. I hadn't touched it in months until then either.
 
Things were starting to look up, I'd just improved my high score on Easy St to £111K, taken Hard Way over £100k for the first time in a long while and was just about to do the same on Medium Road until it suddenly decided to die on me.Unhappy
 
Good shout on Tumblepop though, think I will resort to a few games of this and Nemesis next week while PB is out of action.

Damn you Ben, been waiting for my copy of Wonder Boy III for over a week now.

Hopefully it will be here tomorrow so I can give that fish a good battering.

My garcade has never seen 6 button action. I think my 6 slot Neo geo has come the closest. Can't get into Street Fighter 2 CE like i did in the 90's

Decided to fiddle with the cabs and do a list of overdue renovations/repairs.
I now have 4 cabs in various states of disrepair strewn across the lounge LOL Nemesis will be next!

I don't think playing arcade games on line appeals to me. I used to like playing street fighter II against random people in chip shops and get perfectsWink. Or playing it on the genesis winner stays on (6-8 of us when it was first released. Damn you E-Honda and your slapsAngry
