Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

From my point of view it is down to the technology behind the machine rather than how old it is. Over the years there have be some major changes in how a machine runs. Before the 8bit era things were generally very crude with no more than simple square blobs floating around and a 4 bit processor hen...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Taking ones foot of the clutch too early when changing gear, that grinds gears quite well :wink:

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 187

Subscribers get both covers for this one just open from exclusive end or it's upside down. There's some nice content plus SNK supplement and stickers for the kiddies to decorate the walls and stuff with. I won't mention the junk advertising bumf - oh I just did. All in all some good reading ahead. ...

Re: How Far Behind in the Magazine Issues Are You?

I'm up to date, but I do tend to skip parts on genres that don't really interest me (Sport, RTG and heavy RPG mainly) and anything modern looking I.E. textured 3D polygons.

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

I am a subscriber to the magazine and received the Fallout issue, there seems a big change reading through this issue. Have you changed the paper for both the magazine and cover? Got to say I am not a fan as it seems cheap and not good to read as the pages are thin, stick together and wrinkle. Also...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Cheers chaps. I forced myself to drive to work and back the last 2 days. Not perfect driving by any means but I made it which was encouraging. :) I may master the manual yet, but still tempted by the idea of an auto. :| Driving an automatic car was the best thing I ever did, as I could not get on w...

Re: Subscriber Covers

It just seems to me that little effort is being put in for something that should be special for subscribers. As I have already mentioned I like the idea of the clutter free look but just wish the covers were better thought out. Some nice art like the old day of Oliver Fray would be nice.

Re: The first games you completed.

As far as I can remember that would be Monty is Innocent on the Spectrum, not the best of Monty games but the only one I completed. Isn't that the one where you play as a weasel or something? And you have to bust Monty out of jail - except your player character keeps getting hidden behind the foreg...
