    Would it be too much to ask if people could leave the tips n tricks posts out until at least a day or 2 after the game has started? Some gamers may like to discover( and have the ability to ) for themselves Just a thought.

    the dirty dozen indeed, the games just keep getting filthier. andy you and visy should get a section in the commercial section as i for one have no idea what games you have for sale and whats coming up for sale. must be a melbourne mason's secret hand shake cenario. if mk gets drawn and i hear bitchin ill be citing this game as the standard barer for games that are all bad.


    maybe a seperate tips and tricks thread with a spoiler alert. make it happen toto.

    practice practice practise helps you try out and develop strategies! and i must agree i love the sound on the dedicated cab. i'm gonna miss that sound.

    Don't get me wrong, a guide to games is great, but just not the moment its posted. The learning curve is one of the fun parts imo, just like in the arcade

    No probs John, i can see your point. I just think that all players need a little time to find out for themselves, whether its by playing or via looking it up on the net( totally up to the individual )
    Just asking for people to refrain from posting it, for just a day or 2 is all.

    Not a rule, just a suggestion

    I agree with Wingtip about the no-no of posting tips/tricks so early in the game ruining the Learning Curve and the fun of discovery. Lexmark has a point though about those that know the trick having an unfair advantage. (never heard of it myself) But now that it's been outed as a game-changer from Day 1, should we outlaw this 'sparx trap' or now is everyone going to play Qix this way - cause they know it gives you an unfair advantage? And where's the fun in that.

    I'd rather play it off legit more than trying for high scores via this exploit, that sort of ruins the fun for me, just my opinion though, what are thoughts of others.

    Edit update: Now that I've read about the trick it seems hard to do anyway... But now I'm curious and will be trying it out I'd be interested to hear if others think this should be allowed, it is part of the game not a bug/cheat/exploit but can give an unfair advantage so maybe it should be put up to a vote.

    MK has already been voted out, so not much chance of that

    personally i'd vote to veto the vetos but that's another argument this should be fun I've heard of it but never played a game before so hopefully my cabinet likes it better then the q*Bert roms.
