Re: byebye from Timmy Lumsden

appears to me Mr Lumsden was called names by 2 other
users, posted decent replies, didn't call anyone a name
back - and now you're telling him good riddance as if he
was the abuser?

Re: Your thoughts on Zzap 64!

Never owned a C64, and I still have some memories of reading ZZAP, so
it must have been entertaining in it's own right.

Re: Poll - Do you play new releases?

more new games than old these days - mainly due to
being easier to buy/play something on current gen. my older consoles
get short bursts of attention.

Re: Would you buy an independant retro gaming magazine?

Re: Why Reviews no longer matter.

A review is, essentially, one guy's opinion. (And I guy i don't know)

There are a few excellent journos doing reviews, but
mostly I get a PR like bad taste from reviews these days
