Re: Retro Gaming Chat on Discord - join in at 9pm every Sunday

I don't know what you mean. :lol: It was fun though. I try to get on more often but unfortunately work or family get in the way.
I am amazed at how the magazine has thousands of readers and yet the discord chat only has about 5 people in the chat every week.
It's such a shame.

I didn't have Son - 4 goals or Kane - 4 assists and 1 goal. Think I'll just give up now! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Week 1. Triple captain on Salah scoring a hat-trick. 60 points.
Respect where it's due Sputryk. We're not worthy.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Gone full retro and bought a Tomytronic 3D thundering turbos off eBay for ยฃ30. The ones that look like binoculars. In good condition and works great. Never had one as a kid but always wanted one. I can't wipe the grin off my face. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: What was #1 the week you were born?

I was born in September 1973 and the song at number one on the week i was born was Eye Level by The Simon Park Orchestra. Instrumental t.v theme tune to a show called Van Der Valk. Some cop show set in Holland apparently. Happy enough with that as quite a catchy little number. Could have been a lot ...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

Being born in 73 i love everything to do with the 80's so this issue is perfect for me. The cover is great as it really stands out and reminds me of some gaming magazines from the past. Lots of interesting content this month as well. Also my first ever owned computer the Dragon 32 which doesn't appe...
