Re: Where can I play the classic game Elite?

There was a GBA homebrew version that was awesome. I think it was based on the NES version. Brilliant if you want to play with a controller.

I was at their head office today for a business meeting and got to try one of the very first units off the production line. A video below for those that are interested!

Re: Your fave adventure game

Space quest 2 and Discworld are my favourites and Jinxter is easily my favourite text adventure. The best thing about the old adventure games was the comedy. I'm playing Space Quest 2 through again on steam and its still funny.

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Joe Dever has died, following complications from bile duct surgery. So sad, he'd just finished wrangling a deal to continue the Lone Wolf series too. Don't know if he'd finished work on book 30, and whether it will be published posthumously or not. :( http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/14937849....

Re: Linx 1010b for Emulation

I was looking at the Linx 1010b as an upgrade to my Linx 8. I went with the Linx Vision 8 in the end because it comes with an attachable xbox360 controller. I went into shock when I could play Fallout New Vegas. I was happy enough with android for my mobile emulation but with windows you can do so m...
