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

Come on this evening from 9pm where we will talk. And you can talk about whatever you want. Honestly, any old rubbish is allowed, not just Amstrad. I hope you can find the time to troll. This facebook nonsense is just a flash in the pan. In a few years time, online chatrooms will be back again, I kn...

Re: Amstrad, Spectrum or C64. What is the worst and best hardware for gaming?

I would say the C64 is technically the best overall for gaming because it was designed to play games, whereas the Spectrum wasn't specifically, and the C64 cost more too. In my opinion, the C64's SID chip is the single best thing aesthetically to come out of the 8 bit computer scene. The Amstrad's c...

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

It has been a grim week with the story of one of the greatest television shows of all time being axed in controversial circumstances. Jeremy Kyle's highly entertaining current affairs programme has been pulled after one of the guests was found dead, and there have been suggestions the programme made...

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

I should let everyone know just in case you weren't aware - legendary ex-videogame journalist Stuart Campbell lost his defamation case against the Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale. He said he was "deeply distressed" by Dugdale claiming he was homophobic. Stuart is a sensitive person who is of co...
