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

Hi guys! Would have posted an update earlier but I was busy creating my Dominic Cummings fanpage. I just don't understand why people are criticising this great man. So what if he visited relatives 250 miles away while he had symptoms of coronavirus? It was really important, and I'm sure he washed hi...

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

We will be back on tonight talking about the coronavirus no doubt, as you do on a retrogaming chat, after Boris Johnson's 6pm address to the nation. He will relax the rules, so we can celebrate that tonight from 9pm on Discord. Follow the link in my signature. And remember the new guidelines: STAY A...

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

Hey you! YES, YOU!! Don't inject that bleach just yet!! Come on tonight and we can talk more about the Coronavirus. I am taking steps to self-isolate in my flat from everyone else in the building by living in my Atari 5200. There's plenty of space, that's for sure! My Spectrum wasn't looking too goo...

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

Tonight we can carry on again with another retro gaming chat, which sadly has turned into the Kieren Hawken slaughterhouse these last few weeks. Still it keeps us from talking about the world ending. All I can say about that is thank god we have the Tory party in during this moment of extreme crisis...

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

Just to let you know the chat is on this Sunday at 9pm again. Due to the conversation being so much about Laird recently, we were thinking of renaming it the Kieren Hawken Fan Club, but that might not increase the attendance! Hope to see some of you there on Sunday 9pm anyway--the link is in my sign...

Re: Is the forum in decline?

I definitely prefer forums to Facebook, no question, but for now the conversation seems to be happening on that site for the most part. I hope somehow it changes in the future 🙂

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

I'll really give it a go this Sunday. I think I'm free. The chat is quite irreverant, and this weekend we will still be on the potential lookout for The Laird who you will surely know has made a little bit of news recently. But he didn't turn up last week so I doubt he will be back again. See you f...

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

A topic for you to discuss: ZX Spectrum sales numbers. The total is 5 millions I believe. 15% of those were the Amstrad made Spectrum +3, roughly 750 000 machines. I can only assume more Spectrum +2 were made. How many Spectrums did Sinclair make? How about russian clones, Timex and maybe other pro...

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

Yes, the Retro Gaming Chatroom hosted on Discord is on this weekend, Sunday 9pm to be precise, so I hope some people who are brave enough can join the entertainment when it begins, and it won't just be about slagging off the Amstrad either. We will talk about non-Sugar related items if you like. Spe...

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.
