Re: Why is Tails hated so much?

Tails is seen as the Scrappy Doo of the series which is quite an insult when you think about it

Steady on now, I never said he was famous.
Fair enough 8) If there's a middle ground between fame and obscurity, then that's all that guy could ever remotely claim to have reached.

Re: Dave Perry

To be fair to Fletcher, he got to be a director of Hollywood blockbusters on the back of a successful acting career that started way before Gamesmaster. Perry, on the other hand, came out of obscurity and went back there when it finished. When did he come out of obscurity?? The guy has never been f...

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

It finally happened, we were all sat at the computer at the same time and was in the same place in cyber-space! I found out, chatting requires quick-thinking and the ability to talk freely, calling up different stuff to talk about, to make a good conversation - my mind has trouble doing this. Anywa...

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

It has been a dreadful week for holidaymakers that have dealt with Thomas Cook: the company goes bust and all package holidays are void. People tried to re-book flights on other airlines and found the prices tripled overnight. It really does redefine the definition of a bad purchase. I actually boug...

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

And it all starts again from this Sunday at 9pm. You can talk about anything no matter how right-wing, as long as it isn't to do with the Amstrad of course, and the link to join is in the signature of this post. I hope to see you there on Sunday evening from 9pm onwards :)

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

Yes, we are here again tonight from 9pm. Come on if you are bored enough. Tonight we are starting a poll to find the worst Amstrad game ever made. Only the very, very worst games can be considered because we simply don't have the time to go through them all. This week it'll be games starting with th...

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

Last week we were almost overpowered by the amount of people on discord at the same time, including Laird and Retro Vertigo from America giving a Spectrum-free take on the retro scene. I think DreamcastRIP AKA Sephiroth81 also turned up and Markopolomintman was there too in between drinking behind t...

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

It is of course devastating to realise that one of my main interests is in fact responsible for so much of the suffering in the developed world. Yes folks, it's true: video games directly inspired the recent mass murder shootings in America. I actually feel in part to blame for the killings myself, ...

Arcade Club Leeds review

I visited the recently opened Arcade Club venue in Leeds which complements the one that's been going in Bury for a couple of years now. Getting off at Headingley train station, it's easy to find, and you pay £16 to get in (£8 for kids). It has three floors of arcade machines: the ground floor was ma...

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

Come on again tonight for some more non-Facebook related entertainment where we will talk about anything retro and of course censored anything at all related to Amstrad :D There may even be some arguments between a couple of members who aren't fans of each other's work, and there may be some snooker...

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

We have a new leader, and potentially a new legend in Boris Sergeyevich Johnson, the 437th Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and soon to be inaugural Prime Minister of the Fifty First State. He has got the position through attention to detail and an ability to work with both sides of the argument...

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

Well, Sunday evening was very good once again with The Laird, Sscott and other veterans talking about very old video games. There weren't any big arguments unfortunately, but maybe next time! 😉

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

It is fifty years on from July 20th 1969, when man first stepped on the moon and uttered the now immortal line: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for extreme right-wing republicans." It's amazing to realise all these years later that the moon landings were actually faked in a movie stud...

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

Good to see everyone last night! Yes I was just going to come on here and post about that. It was good to see you on there just like the old times, and with laird on there too we talked about quite a number of things. We talked about retro arcades! We talked about the tangibility of infinity! We ta...
