Re: The Star Wars thread

She should have taken a leaf out of Daisy Ridley's book and deleted her social media accounts. It's kinda funny how none of the free speech absolutists on here were leaping to her defence when she was the one copping the flak though. Last year, the right wingers didn’t want her in the show. She say...

Re: Retro Gamer 217. Capcom: An Arcade Legacy

Subscribers get the Final Fight cover, the other 7 are available at retail. (I managed to get all five Pokemon covers back in the day, but lockdown means no way to get these Capcom ones...) Really loved Lewis’s piece on Wizkid, and I’m a big fan of Zombies. I did enjoy the Staff Favourites boxes in ...

Re: The Star Wars thread

All they needed to do, if anything, was put out a statement saying they aren't aligned with nor condone all of the views expressed by their actors. Gina Carano is not Cara Dune. That's the thing about actors, they don't present themselves on screen, they're other people. We're not tuning in to see ...

Re: Laurant Weill

Were there many unfinished and unreleased titles from the company, and what was your favourite that did not make it?

Did you have much contact with the hardware manufacturers?

Did you ever make any suggestions to the developers they put in?

Re: Elite IP Auction

In theory they could sell the rights to THEIR implementation of Battleships, since it has some unique features.
But I am sure Frank Bruno’s lawyers would be against selling anything with his image without consent.

Re: Home Computer Club (late 80s)

I was a member too, although I threw out all the old club magazines before a house move.

Bought something most months, and often took the Editor’s Choice.
One I wish I had got was the double pack of Total Eclipse & Total Eclipse II (Sphinx Jinx), which was a club exclusive.

Re: Coronavirus

There was a music festival held in New Zealand this weekend, massed crowds and no masks. Thats the power of having a government that actually gives a toss. So do you really think the UK government don't give a toss? You feel they are happy to just let people die? Are you insane? They may have made ...

But... Shadow of the Colossus on PS2 still looks amazing! Things look a little bit better now, but not much, hardly changed at all really.

Re: Have you kept in contact with any of your school friends ?

For a long while I didn’t. Caught up with a couple of people thanks to Friends Reunited, then joined a reunion group on The Facebook. Was cool recently when someone posted our Year 11 photo and we tried to remember all the names - and 3 days later someone popped up with their handwritten list from b...
