Atomic Runner - an absolute blast of a game. These days it would be called an 'endless runner' but it's really a shmup in which you control a running man instead of an aircraft or spaceship.
It's hard to quantify exactly what makes a great shmup but what ever 'it' is, Atomic runner has it in spades.
It doesn't look anything special in screenshots or videos but if you get the chance to play it then do so - it's fucking ace.

I remember playing the Arcade version of that a lot during a holiday in the South of France in the late 80's :) It's good, but pretty hardcore.

A couple of excellent Megadrive pick-ups.

Shining Force 2 - I'm not the biggest fan of RPGs but I wanted to give this a go because I'd played a bit of Fire Emblem (because I'd heard it was a bit like Advance Wars) and really enjoyed it. So far I've only completed 5 or 6 battles but it's great fun. The presentation is top-notch too (lovely music in particular).

Well the problem with the Ultimate Collection is that I need to rely on the local postal services here in South Africa which is unreliable.

I did actually bought all the Digital Progs that are currently available. I also bought a few of the collections.

But then came the 90s and the combination of the summer assault let by Millar/Morrison/Ennis quickly killed my love for the Prog and I stopped my subscription. […] I re-started my subscription again almost a third into the Day of Chaos epic.
It strikes me that you're almost the ideal target for the Ultimate Collection. Regardless, welcome to the forum!

Thanks Richard, TordelBack and Steve Green for adding more variables to the potential ramifications regarding sexual/emotional entanglements.  All of this information that you fellas have provided thus far is helping me out considerably.  What it is allowing me to do is "reverse engineer" (a term I've heard used that I hope is correct) the world as it is, or more came to be, and then from that be able to apply situations and scenarios that lend themselves to nudging viewpoints in that direction.

Though I'll have some dirty little secrets in my story that lend themselves to supporting everything that has been discussed (gang problem, government issues, attack on the White House, the system of generating new judges, etc.), I have ABSOLUTELY no intention of changing anything as it has been presented in the series.

That said, as the world is and will likely be by 2027, even the density along the Northeast Mega-region (Bos-Wash Megalopolis), I believe needs to change to support and promote the coming of the Street Judges.  That population density shift alone coupled with the problems that would come with it, along with what forced that density shift, I believe will help establish a more plausible scenario.

In the end however, for me it is simply the fun of working it all out and building the story.

Thanks again for all of your help!

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...

Watched Need For Speed at the weekend, which was probably the most faithful videogame to movie adaptation I've seen based on the couple of NFS games I've played through.

It's hardly high art (it's the quintessential greasy hamburger of a movie) but if you want to switch off your brain and just watch someone who has to drive a car really fast for honor, love and justice then it's actually surprisingly enjoyable trash. It's no Tokyo Drift but makes an alright fist of it.

Tonight I'm going to see Iron Eagle in the cinema, which I haven't seen since renting it about a dozen times as a kid. I'm sure it still holds up great and isn't a load of dated cheese at all.

Hi, I am also one of those guys that was lurking from the shadows waiting or rather procrastinating about whether to post or not.

My knowledge was limited to the American Comics and stuff like Tintin and Asterix. My first introduction to the Prog was way back in Prog 374.  I can still remember my first Dredd “The Wreckers” with great fondness. Rogue quickly became my favorite. From that day I was hooked on British Comics (reading Eagle and Battle)

But then came the 90s and the combination of the summer assault let by Millar/Morrison/Ennis quickly killed my love for the Prog and I stopped my subscription.

I re-started my subscription again almost a third into the Day of Chaos epic. Getting the Prog locally in the News Agents became virtually impossible and the Postal Services here is as trustworthy as Blackblood. The digital route became a blessing (the getting use to not holding the Prog is the most mind-boggling thing).
