Re: Charity Shops

Ebay has killed off the charity bargain hunts almost completely. Pre covid I hadnt seen anything in about 2 years, was vib ribbon and they wanted 20 quid even then.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Completed the installation of MSFS 2020 and successfully run it. Took less time to beat Zelda BOTW tbh!

2% away from finishing Uncharted 2 but decided to read RG tonight.

Lemmings on anything bar the Amiga.

The hardware mouse cursor controller made it flow real nice on the A500. PC version was pants.

Re: Issue 212

Someone on the readers letters pages was asking about What Poke? Magazine. I do remember them and have 2 hard copies right next to me, they were extremely good for the time. Obtained when I was lucky to have a summer job at the Helston Computer Centre way back when. I did have a 3rd one which was ab...

Re: Free stuff in cereals and crisps...

Wish Kelloggs would bring back Banana Bubbles, sorts of a banana version of coco pops, totally awesome they were! Every other cereal on the shelf now is choco this and granola that. Rather eat factory floor sweepings. I do remember freebies in crisps and cereal, they must have been utterly garbage a...

Re: From the Forum - Issue 204: The Nostalgia Effect

Only want my shelves filled with games I want to play really, definitely not into buying for the sake of it or to complete a collection. It is getting more difficult to collect in any case, thankfully i held onto most of my collections from Spectrum and Amiga days. A part of me wants to enjoy retro ...

Re: GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

For less than £20 i acquired a decent condition 2ds console, hacked it and can now run gba and gb games really nice. Also a great way to enjoy game gear games without forking out a fortune for a difficult to install screen mod!

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Recently been dragged into this world, proud owner of no fakes mainly because the games that I normally get are not or wont be faked, in general. However purchase pokemon games recently and all seem legit but having a hard job deciding if my pokemon platinum box is faked. Its an EU version, has a ho...
