Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Finally we're getting an Assassin's Creed, the system needs more stuff like this. A bit unfortunate it's one I've played already and not the best of them, but might buy it and play through again anyway as I do like that game style. Fingers crossed they port some more. Grid Autosport is also interest...

Re: Something I need to say and some advice needed

You were fine, don't worry about it. We were all young and daft once, we understood. Just glad you stuck around.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Thimbleweed Park is great, really enjoyed my time with it.

I finished Baobab's Mausoleum and Bulb Boy in the last week. Both very odd, but in different ways.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I want them. I like a good Robin Hood or King Arthur tale. What I don't understand is how so many get it wrong.

Re: Just found a load of 1989 - 1990 Kerrang and Metal Hammer mags

Moved more stuff in my loft. I seem to have a mag hoarding problem I wasn't aware of.

I have at least 10 stacks of various mags, each stands about 2 feet tall. 8 o how there's more...

Re: From the forum: 192

Ooh, are we counting all their other brands too? Salamander was an Imagine game, so I didn't even consider it, much as I like it (I've bought it at least twice for C64).

Good shout on The Great Escape though.

Re: From the forum: 192

As much for nostalgia as playability, I have to say Hunchback on the Oric, Its full of happy memories and is one of the first games I mastered, looping it round several times.

Re: PS4 on Credit?

On the games note, I don't see future releases as a huge issue. There's a massive back catalogue to draw from that will last for several years before they're all played anyway. In a similar vein, PS3 was supported online for years after PS4. Sony aren't likely to cut off an easy revenue stream for p...

Re: PS4 on Credit?

Conversely, it's only one year. A PS4 isn't suddenly going to become garbage overnight. If you're happy with the interest paid and know that you can pay it every month without detriment, even if some unexpected bill comes along, there's no harm. I'd heed the warnings of it being a slippery slope to ...

Re: Just found a load of 1989 - 1990 Kerrang and Metal Hammer mags

I used to buy loads of mags. More gaming mags than I care to count since I started pre-Crash/Zzap, but ignoring those, other mags I bought regularly were: SFX FHM GQ Loaded Esquire Maxim Bike Classic Bike Performance Bikes Back Street Heroes Streetfighters Empire Ravers Computer Arts Digit 3D World ...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Fair enough, surprising stats though. I looked at FB (went there just for it, as I don't tend to look at FB), saw someone had already asked, then left it at that.

Re: Shadowfire C64 / ZX Spectrum REMAKE for iOS

Can I buy one version for all, or do I need to pay twice to get the TV and phone versions?

Re: Did you ever have to call a gaming helpline - and if so why?

Once. I called for help with Delta 4's The Boggit, as I just couldn't work out the phrase needed to do something early on. I might have got a bit tongue tied when I realised that I was speaking to Fergus McNeill himself, as the phone number was, I believe, for his house, and I'm pretty sure it was h...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Twitter? Not the facebook page, where queries went unanswered? How many people follow twitter for a mag? Since it's mainly long bits of text and images that are of interest to share our hobby, twitter seems the least likely option anyone would check. I didn't even realise there was an official twit ...
