Cool :) I'm glad we did meet up.

The gadget thing was from Inspector Gadget... or rough translation a joke that you didn't get lol :D

I haven't been on here properly for a while, so bear with me while I dust my ID off a bit... ;) I've been to 3 of boyo's events, including this one. I can sympathise with Stacy's plight of travel, being a Kilmarnock boy myself, but once again it was worth it. I'll do a couple of shoutouts then, shal...

although the 0898 numbers at the back of the mag are inappropriate, especially if these are magazines that some parents may want to give to their kids as examples of what they played when they were younger. I know it's advertising, but come on. We've done the advertising thing to death on this foru...

...It's a shame, Turrican, that you won't buy the magazine, purely on the basis of what it looks like, but there you go. Note, however, that the community aspect is one I know Retro Gamer feels strongly about, hence a few pieces are going to be introduced specifically to engage the readers in a fai...

...and from the brink of all out war the dove of retro peace comes flying overhead with a SID chip in it's mouth.... ;) Darran is right, but then this answer has been used throughout the previous pages, albeit in slightly different ways. Games are games, whether they be retro or not and some will wa...

I think what sometimes happens is that as time goes on and our current gaming formats get ever more powerful, the cut off point that some people are prepared to go back to follows with it and that some people that would have went back to the C64's and Spectrums may only want to head back to Atari ST...

There is no prejudice, you just fail to see that the human race have moved on with the times and gotten themselves games machines of the modern age. Back then you would have never thought about having arcade games stored in your PC or online gaming. Nobody minds downloading a game for free, why wou...

That's what i'm struggling to understand - during the 1980s and at least some of the 1990s, those games were written by people in the exactly same boat as those doing it now; Software Projects, Llamasoft, the Stampers, the early days of Sierra before they were even called that, probably close to 90...

i'd play both until i made a decision as to which i felt was the more playable. Even though they are the same game and bearing in mind that one of them IS the arcade original.. i'm not sure i follow the "knock on" logic really, but generally speaking the 16-bit machines are quite a bit more powerfu...

To be fair, it's been a while since I frequented in these forums, so I haven't had a chance to change it lol, but hey :) I just wish that forum discussions could be done without resorting to certain levels... maybe I'm asking for too much. I mean a 360 plus a wireless network adaptor still comes to ...

That's what I've missed from this forum... all the love and good old fashioned maturity.. The PS3 has a better reliability record, the 360 has a better online community and the Wii hasn't lost the fact that it's a games console.

Kurushi and Kurushi Final

Why don't you do an article on that? It NEVER got enough exposure or the following it deserved. Such a brilliant idea for a puzzle game too.

If you're selling the games for free and it's not doing anyone any harm, then what was the point in someone setting this thread up in the first place? To understand why people seem so reluctant to download and try free or nominal cost games for 8-bits. it's a mixture of time restrictions and the ea...
