I ended up not feeling too bad because at least one of those was behind a Lv. 6 door which I had only just got access to. I also picked up the mine detector, the silencer for the handgun, the camera and the tranquilliser sniper. The latter is wonderful. Pretty sure there is also a weapon somewhere called the Stinger because there was ammo for it that I couldn't pick up in the room where I got the camera.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Yep. It's one of my top priority retro purchases for next year.

I can say for sure that it has broken into my top 10 GC games. Not sure where. Perhaps even top 5.

For some reason I forgot you were playing twin snakes. I originally completed the original so this was probably my first experience of any kind of "remaster" where I'd actually played the first game, and before that was the in thing.

It's probably worth playing the original as well because you will notice the over the top matrix influences from the 2000s and more subtle direction by Kojima. You can tell an American studio produced the remake. Playing it from a 90s perspective also makes more sense with the post Cold War feel.

It's an incredible collection, but every time he said 'SEEGA' it was like someone drawing their fingernails over a blackboard. As a Sega fan, he said it rather a lot. Maybe be it's a 'colonial commoner' thing.

This is probably skirting the boundaries of retro but i realised there are many xbox 360 games that will probably never get made xbone compatible, either because they're music games with peripherals like dj hero, or have been delisted/never had a digital release in the first place and/or the developers have shut down and will therefore never give the go-ahead. As such i re-acquired a 360 specifically to cater to those tastes and realise my racing game collection dream, and to make playing games i could emulate ps2/cube versions of more tolerable (mainly the good need for speed games).

Good on ya, Trelliz - the 360 remains a terrific console and, although emulation and backwards compatibility can be great options, I personally enjoy the experience of using the original hardware.

I enjoyed having a 360, however I am very much coming at this from a sense of pragmatism and necessity. I can play DJ Hero 2, NFS etc. on Dolphin or PCSX2, the former even using the actual turntable. However its not a perfectly smooth experience. I'm prepared to tinker to some degree, however there comes a point where I spend more time doing that instead of actually playing the game. Coupled with the aforementioned dearth of orphaned games which will in all likelihood never come to back compatibility I thought the time was right. I've picked up a load of great (for me) game at knockdown prices; the indie gaming shop I frequent had a 360 copy of DJ Hero for 5p, I went to pay with a 10p and they didn't have any change so told me to just take it, this after getting the turntable at a bootsale for £1. Also I can now play Project Gotham Racing 1-4 thanks to the 360's original compatibility.

PGR4 was damn good. Probably one of my favourite driving games.

I think i'm starting to "get" retro now, albeit in a mostly genre-specific way and still involving emulation; i'm not buying a japanese gamecube to play GT Cube or Future GPX Cyber Formula: Road to the Evolution; neither am i buying a japanese ps2 for Racing Battle C1 Grand Prix or the Initial D games, for example, so i'll gladly emulate those and other stuff instead, especially as beyond a certain timeframe the only way to buy said games is from ebay scalpers.

Fortunately racing seems to be a largely ignored genre when it comes to collecting, making acquisitions cheap and easy.

Agreed, and the only reason I've kept my Xbox 360 is for the PGR games.

PGR3 was better though in my opinion - I had a huge amount of fun racing online with that when the 360 launched :)

PGR4 tried to do a bit too much, and I preferred the simplicity of 3. Saying that, I hated the whole Kudos system.

I played a lot of 2 but missed 3 and 4, i'm looking forward to exploring the whole series and more.

Oh, might have to track down PGR3 and give it a try then.
