Ah, I see the where this is going... it's the old chestnut about trying to making a videogame show that caters to the average joe on the street. I've always found the Cheeky Scot Diamond to be pretty entertaining, from the point of view of his risque references and childish humour. 'When Games Attac...

It's a shame that One Step Beyond in Norwich ended in such a bad way. I used to work there back in the mid-eighties, when it was calld Brainwave (and before that I used to hang out in there after college). The whole culture was different then.

Probably one of the oldest 'retro' guys around here... 37.. :roll: I've been gaming since 1980, after moving to a little seaside village in Norfolk and being seduced ...
