Re: Emuparadise Shuts Up Shop

Nope. Games have been big business pretty much from the start, claims of being ahead of the movie business have been around for at least 2 or 3 decades. Gaming has never been 'underground' either. They started with a big explosion where everyone played, slowed down to mainly kids playing for a few y...

Well, at least you can't be accused of not having a sense of humour.

Re: Emuparadise Shuts Up Shop

Why wouldn't it be about business? Nintendo striking out at sites that distribute their games for free isn't a new thing, they were doing it 20 years ago when emulators first became really viable. There were no end of rom sites around in the late 90s and early 00s, and a Nintendo cease and desist or...

Re: monthly retro gaming quiz

My problem is that I have absolutely no clue on current gen games as I've not played any. Me neither, I don't own an XBone or PS4 and my PC isn't up to it. I've got a Switch, but that's fairly limited with cross platform games. I'm generally working on guesses via games I've seen discussed here, bi...

^Yeah its a Skylanders BUY THIS TO DO THIS type game
No. It's not.
You still have to buy little toys to do more things in game
No you don't, the game is fully completable without buying anything extra, there's no big chunks of game locked behind a paywall.

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Things have changed then? Hadn't noticed, I always just come here via the 'view new posts' option, so never see individual sections. Why rummage round when you can have the forum bring things to you?

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

If you don't want to mess about with toys, the digital download version is better. You can get all the content without faffing about buying pointless toys. I quite like the look of it, but wasn't interested in the physical aspect, was just waiting for the digi version to come down in price a bit.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

A New Hope on the big screen, with an orchestra playing the score. Tbh, the orchestra was too good, they were a bit redundant. It was just like watching the movie in the cinema, they played it identically, so most of the time you'd forget they were there. Fantastic job in terms of replicating the sc...

Re: monthly retro gaming quiz

Well, at a glance I reckon I know 5 straight off the bat without any great memory trawling or research. There's a few more I have some hunches on that I'd want to check before committing to an answer. I wouldn't let only knowing a couple put you off. There are players every month that only score a c...

I could care less. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: It really winds me up when I see Americans say this and even more when they can't see that it's wrong. There is no point, they are adamant they are right. Even when you point out that it literally makes no sense. Same as when I hear Them say this games is ...

Re: The Star Wars thread

I'm going to this on Sunday: https://www.thessehydro.com/events/detail/star-wars

Anyone been? Not as good as the 'Star Wars in Concert' thing that was done with Anthony Daniels (that I missed), but hoping it's worth the trek to Glasgow.
