Re: Android game recommendations

Going by the store reviews, Sidebooks looks a bit flakey when compared to ComicRack, have you tried that one? I found it years ago and stuck with it, but haven't read comics for a while.

Re: Pinball Dreams Amstrad CPC finally released

That's a truly awful quality video, but the ball action seems smooth, pretty good for an 8 bit conversion.

I tend to mark the article by folding the corners so I can see at a glance what's unread.
You realise the impact that statement will have on the audience here? I can hear it now, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 199

You lug 199 issues of RG around with you all the time? Where is it you're bringing these things to that makes that useful?

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

We can only hope sales of these drive them to rerelease Overkill, which is a far better game. I have the Wii version, but I'd be up for a shiny new HD release on Switch, even just porting from PS3 would do.

Re: Questions for Big Boy Barry (off the telly. In the 90s)

As an older viewer (I was in my 20s when in started), I found the show too juvenile for my tastes. Was there ever any attempt to get a more adult oriented show off the ground that just didn't fly with those in charge, or was it not a consideration that there was an adult market for gaming in the 90s?

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

Have it? I have a full complement of 4 sets of bongos to go with it. Jungle Beat is probably the more enjoyable game.

Re: iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch game recommendations

Hmm, the Apple TV option may have me passably interested. Not sure I'd use it often enough to warrant a sub of that much though, even though it is cheap. My money would probably be better spent on a couple of decent Switch games over the year. I'll maybe give the free trial a go.

Re: Dara O Brian's Go 8 BIT

Very bad presenter for go 8-bit. Could they have not got a good presenter , maybe a new presenter maybe even just a good looking women that always works The years 2019 fella not the 70s !! I would prefer to have someone who likes gaming rather than some generic good looking male or female presenter...

Bit of a fail when you create a competitive videogame show and muck up the game setup!

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Grid Autosport is finally arriving to give us a quality 'real' racing game instead of all the cheap mobile ports so far. That said, Asphalt 9 might still be worth a look to have it with real controls if the price is right.

You don't have to pay for emulators, there's no end of free ones, especially for PC. I'd go as far as saying the majority of emulators are free.
