Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I have started watching Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, a film which has been on my Blu-Ray shelf for a while now waiting to be viewed.

Last week I saw Dawn... and recently purchased War... as Morrisons was selling it at a very reasonable price.

Re: What are you currently playing?

This week I have returned to some of my older PS3 games - namely LEGENDS OF WAR and UNDER SIEGE - to try and collect the few remaining trophies I still have not obtained for them. Most of the trophies were awarded several years ago and I am enjoying the nostalgia of replaying these games again!

Re: Invaders V Galaxians V Gorf?.

During the late 1970's at my local Asda store, there were a couple of arcade machines - Galaxian and Space Invaders - near the doorway. These were the first games I ever played. My brother became very good at Space Invaders but Galaxian was by far my favourite. We spent hours on these game until one...

Re: Best version of Battle Chess or even chess game in general?

I have always wanted a historical themed chess game, desirably the Battle Of Waterloo, with pewter pieces representing the leaders and soldiers. Of course, such a set would be very expensive!

Re: RIP <Insert celebrity>

RIP Max Von Sydow, one of the greatest Swedish actors of all time.

Horror fans will remember him from the likes of The Seventh Seal, The Exorcist and Needful Things.

For Sci-fi fans, there was Minority Report, Judge Dredd and Flash Gordon.

Re: Retro Gaming Spotlight: Gauntlet

I remember playing Gauntlet very much and first saw it while visiting family at Skegness one year. This became the highlight of our holiday as it was the only game in the arcades that my brother, sister, cousin and myself could all play together. Fortunately we soon learned that the game was better ...
