Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Excellent, I look forward to seeing this... heading towards 49, going to see a sonic movie in the cinema alone. If only my kids were a bit older LOL (actually no, I wish I could pause them at this age!).

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 204

Re: Got a question for a ZX Spectrum legend?

What question did you think we'd ask today, but haven't!?

(I say that as someone who doesn't know the games or system, it could apply to any interviewee).

Are the Ages games only available via digital distribution? I've never seen any of them in stores, nor on Ebay. Phantasy Star be one I'd want to get.
Digital distribution only yes.

Re: From the Forum - Issue 203: The Nostalgia Effect

Nostalgia for the games I enjoyed years ago is a major reason I love retro gaming - I love playing those old games, even those that aren't that good as it takes me back. It's also a jumping off point to then go on to play other games perhaps wanted to play but couldn't afford, or just interesting ga...
