Re: New forum - issues and complaints

Clearly there was a mess otherwise the admins wouldn't have had to close it and issued bans for offending members and delete associated posts; there have been repeated warnings about AUP. Oh it was a dreadful place for sure. I had to hold my nose the whole time I was in there. Simply dreadful. Vill...

No Off Topic means no birthday greetings, no Secret Santa, no Fantasy Footy... :cry:
Look on the bright side, it's less work for the magazine staff. Which is the main thing. The magazine will improve exponentially as a result. I should think.

Re: New forum - issues and complaints

I've just seen Darren's message. Okay. Seems like there's been a big bust-up on there or something - and that part of the forum has now been stopped. I hope it comes back. There hasn't been a big bust up, just the usual stuff. The mods have been building a narrative all week about how racist and of...

Re: Star Trek : Bridge Crew

My first thought is that you can have a really great Star Trek experience without spending any money simply by downloading and playing Star Trek Online. It even has a bit of a retro feel to it. Like it came from the Amiga or something. My second thought is that this is a lot like Sea Of Thieves in t...

Re: E3 2017

Swery65 opened a new studio earlier this year, White Owls. It would be cool if they annouced a new game at E3. A sequel to Deadly Premonition would make me so happy. A Deadly Premonition sequel would make me happy too. Does Swery own the IP though? Mind you, I admit I'll be interested in anything h...

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

My missus just bought me an XBone for my birthday ... So slow to download anything (FIFA took around 10 hours!). How fast is your internet connection? It's kind of important when you're downloading stuff. I've downloaded lots of things on the One, including the FIFAs, and they didn't take that long...

Re: World of Spectrum down?

Hopefully not. It would be a great shame if the archive was lost. Indeed. I just think WOS is past it now. It used to be the "go to" place for speccy stuff but it's been a mess of broken links for ages, the community isn't what it was and the Vega+ nonsense ... well it's done the place no favours r...

Anyone know what's going on?
Laird's right, it's part of the incredible ongoing circus that surrounds the Vega+.

I think WOS has had its day tbh.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The FIFA 18 trailer currently has game sites tripping over themselves to point out the Switch version is minus the story mode and runs on its own engine instead of Frostbite. It doesn't seem like a big deal to me but are people still thinking the Switch is going to get directly comparable ports from...

Re: The Retro Show - 9th September 2017

Have you got permission to post this then? It contravenes part 5 of the AUP - " No Commercial Use". There are several existing threads about retro gaming events (including a pinned one) so if posting about them breached the AUP they would have been locked/deleted by now. You'd like to think so but ...

Re: If You Could Choose One System

I mean I even conceded the point by admitting Mrmessy was correct in calling me out. I think that comment was missed due to outdated_gamers memoirs that directly followed... I actually laughed at this comment. It echoes my own private "Goodness me!" moment upon seeing outdated gamer's alarmingly th...

E3 2017

Good old E3 is nearly upon us so it's time to don our hype-tinted goggles once more and talk like we give a monkey's. What are you hoping to see this year? What's on your radar? Last year I was slightly impressed by Dead Rising 4 and then didn't bother buying it. I was also interested in Sea Of Thie...
