Genuine question, I've never heard the term before. :?
You really do -not- want to know. Seriously. It'll scar you for life just having someone describe it. :shock:

Re: Anyone here own an eee PC?

Careful of the Asus Aspire One though. It has the absolute WORST WAY to upgrade RAM in the history of anything ever. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: (I took 45mins to do mine and still almost fucked it.) You sir... are a lucky goit if yours is still working. My attempt to upgrade the RAM ended w...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Ugh, why is Mobile Light Force 1 actually Gunbird and Mobile Light Force 2 is actually Shikigami no Shiro. That makes no sense. Because for some bizarre reason (selling the games to a western audience, anyone?), XS Games, which published them both over here, saw fit to retitle the game, tear out al...

I swear all of Gamestation Peterlee's decent staff buggered off to that Grainger store, because the GS store rapidly worsened as soon as it opened. <_<

Re: Brutal Legend

Also wish the main campaign had been a bit longer, if you just stick to the main missions then it's over before it starts :( I made that same mistake too, so trying to 100% everything became more of a grind than anything. And then I found the solo that summons a burning Zeppelin. That really would ...

Re: From the forum question Issue 75

It's a toss-up between Tempest and S.T.U.N. Runner for me.

...

Actually, I'll go for S.T.U.N. Runner, considering I actually got to play the cab, as opposed to Tempest, which I've only played in Atari compilations. :|

Rush Rush Rally Racing. Finishing this with just the 3 credits it gives me is going to take more a few tries. And that's just on Easy. :lol:

Re: SNES Box Art Across the Regions

About the Cybernator PAL boxart: That red angular explosion thingy isn't actually part of the box. It looks like just a sticker that's been slapped on it (note how it's obscuring the blurb on the side) or something that's been added with an image editor for reasons unknown. Without knowing the image...

Re: Making use of an old PS1

Opa-Opa made one of these didn't he. Sure I saw a pic of it on here a few weeks/months ago. He did, you're right, he posted it very recently, I think in one of the threads about recycling console cases for PCs etc. Or maybe it was in a home build stick thread, I forget exactly. http://retrogamer.ne...

Re: Making use of an old PS1

how much would you pay? I'd say £10 at the most, and even then that's pushing the seller's luck as far as I'm concerned. Neat idea, but I have to agree that the photos make it look pretty grotty if it isn't already so. And the button layout... uh. :? [EDIT] And it needs more suitable hands. The one...
