Re: What are you currently playing?

Locomotion (Amiga) (released 1992). I fondly remember playing the demo version that appeared on the Amiga Power coverdisk and had played it for hours! Now, thanks to emulation, I can play the full version. Graphics are relatively basic but the game is still as addictive as ever. :)

Re: I'm now, officially, a Specky ****

Re: Wimbledon Championship 2012

Watching Andy Murray play is like watching Tim Henman all over again. I now have no flipping nails left! All the same; it makes a refreshing change for a Brit to get through to the final. :)

Re: How long did you spend in......Arcades ?

I was a regular at Southend-on-Sea in the eighties and got a huge buzz for amusement arcades thinking nothing of spending an entire afternoon in these (probably about 4-5 hours). I'd pump a lot of money into games like space invaders, Pacman, Asteroids, Rampage, Defender, Pole Position, Galaga, Outr...
