Re: Home Computer Club (late 80s)

I was a member too, although I threw out all the old club magazines before a house move. That's a shame, I wonder if anyone out there has these magazines to scan?

They advertised quite heavily in magazines, usually as a flyer inside. The catch was that once you were a member you had to purchase one item from th...

Re: Arcade 1ups THREAD!!

I'd love something like Star Wars, with controls you can't properly emulate elsewhere, and I'd pay the asking price, but until they're on sale in the UK talking about them is just pointless gum-bumping. 👆 Completely agree. If the Star Wars and Out Run cabinets were available in the UK I would buy b...

Re: Screenshot challenge.

Time for a clue?

OK, it was first released on the C64 in 1987, then ported across to the Amstrad, Spectrum, DOS, Amiga and Atari ST (1988-89).

I also sort of accidentally bought Chrono Trigger!
Nice! It's a fantastic RPG that will give you hours of enjoyment. Just be sure to play on a 3DS XL or DSi XL to really bring out the amazing art style! :D

That looks like an Awesome game on the Amiga!
That was quick! Yes, it is 'Awesome'... although this was taken from the Atari ST version (very similar to the Amiga).

Your go! :D

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

The whole "Limited digital release" seems like a bit of a con.
