Re: When was the NES released in the UK and the rest of Europe?

The NES was ignored in the UK until the NES turtles pack in 1990. The Guy who made the decision to create the bundle said he did it against Nintendo of USAs wishes. Hr eckons sales for that Holiday period were up by as much as 2000 percent. and it sold well for the following year an went past the 1m...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

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: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

That works by me. What about singular megathreads for discussions on popular retrogames? I hate megathreads on Forums for particular subjects. Nothing wrong with a thread becoming large naturally, but the problem with having a megathread for one particur item is twofold. 1. you will always get that...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Don't split the games section into modern and retro, it is quite literally divisive. You'll end up with some who never venture into the opposing topics, missing out on great games and weakening any discussion that arises. Having modern and retro together makes more sense. This way, everyone sees al...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

@ retrobob, Where is the modern games section supposed to be in that list of yours. Its still nice to talk about modern games with fellow retro gamers, it gives a different insight in terms of speaking about games with people who only know modern games. Its great when a modern sequel comes out and y...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Hey there all! Have you ever said "quorum" in real life and if so, were you harmed in the process? No, but I did get some stares. Joe read books and paid attention at school or something, shame on him, apparently. I'm afraid I blame most of my education on early MMOs and Europa Universalis. You wri...

A Small Forum connected to a Uk magazine that specialises in retro games, whose Forum members and community are all practically exclusively UK based. Will speak on things that are relevant to the UK including current events, and a lot of retro stuff like the speccy that are mainly a UK thing. And th...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

If People are talking about things you don't like.

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

But like you said, you think the NES mini is a waste of money because you have access to all the roms for free, Which is exactly my point, the existence and easily available Roms devalues products such as the nes mini in your eyes. If illegal roms and emulators never existed, then more than likely ...
