Re: Paul Woakes tribute

I walked into Games workshop in Manchester back when they used to sell computer games, the manager who was a fellow Atari enthusiast said "take a look at this new game" and he showed me Encounter. One minute later I was handing over my money for a copy, and I played the hell out of if for weeks afte...

Re: The Metro's come up with a list of the top 11 Amiga Game

Did Team 17 ever produce a REALLY good game that wasn't Worms (which is overrated anyway)? Superfrog, Alien Breed, AB: Tower Assault, Alien Breed 2, Assassin, Project X Special Edition, Full Contact, Apidya... take your pick! Never liked Alien Breed games, although I accept that's just my opinion, ...

Re: The Metro's come up with a list of the top 11 Amiga Game

Not familiar with Warhead, looks like the sort of game i would have enjoyed at the time, funny that they used ST footage for the video. Personally I'd have had R-Type in there, but no issues with all of the others mentioned. Did Team 17 ever produce a REALLY good game that wasn't Worms (which is ove...

Re: Best music - C64 or Atari 8 bit?

Wasn't really sure where to put this link, but kind of looks cool... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny743c32gPg That is why the C64 version of Tetris is the best version! I used to sit in a trance when listening to that as a kid :mrgreen: My mate who wrote the Ariston Music Editor that this was wr...

Re: No more TxK

Morally Jeff's in the right, legally he should have cleared this with Atari before he wrote the first line of code.

Re: Raspberry Pi 2

Potentially a stupid question - but here goes... If i've for instance set up Chameleon Pi on an SD card for my current Raspberry Pi, will that work on the new model right away? Doubtful, most dirtros out there need an updated one for the Pi 2 (different architecture) and Chameleon Pi website looks ...

Re: Who are the people that buy games and throw away the box

On a previous discussion on this forum several years ago I stated that I was quite happy to buy a boxed N64 cartridge, write the name on the top in indelible ink and stick the box in the recycle bin. My attitude was that I was buying a game, not a piece of cardboard. I was quite categorically inform...

While Pokemon passed me by, being the old fart that I am, I really like the subscriber cover, it gave me a warm sunny feeling on a nasty cold day.

Quite agree, all sorts of food available only 10 mins walk away, had a cracking meal with the family, if I was in a rush, or even a budget I'd just pack a lunch before setting off.

Re: play expo, manchester, october 11-12 2014

Despite the massive amount of stuff there, for some reason the only thing I'm actually excited about is playing Robotron again. I must be getting old.
