Re: Homebrew - Love it or loathe it?

I love the homebrew section. Conversely I absolutley loathe smartphones with a passion. To me homebrew is about rekindling what was so magic about the games we loved in the 80's, which was that they were often made by odd people in their bedrooms. Like Matthew Smith. And it's nice to see that some p...

Re: Blogs

about four metric tonnes of new updates on mine since I left. Most recent one of note is my fictional account of installing Kinect - http://bedroomcoder.wordpress.com/2010/ ... ort-story/

Your evil plan worked, Darran...

Damn your eyes. I really wanted to not buy the magazine anymore, and then suddenly I get a tweet telling me that my last game's in the homebrew section, "Wally Week in Medication Mania"

...so I went out and bought it. You win Darran.

Oh, and it's not a bad issue either.

Why I stopped reading Retro Gamer

Dear Darran, It has been 3 months since I last bought a copy of Retro Gamer. When I picked up my first one back in 2006 (I think, it was the one with Ghouls and Ghosts on the cover) I thought it was the bestest thing ever. I particularly loved the coverage of the 8-bit era. Recently things started t...

Re: What can I do - Gamestation...

Getting the wrong game isn't uncommon, but it's not the staff's fault. errr, yes it is. I was also going to say that. :lol: Jimbo, who's fault it is then?!?!? Sh*t happens. Frequently in the world of retail. It's a reasonable assumption that whoever retrojc kicked off at wasn't responsible. Also, a...

Re: What can I do - Gamestation...

You shouldn't have lost the receipt. This, x1000, plus you shouldn't treat the staff like censored. Seeing as how you acted like a tosser when you went back to the store I imagine that unless you have a receipt it's a no-go. These people have to put up with infantilised adults like you all day long...

Wally Week is back! ZOMG

Hey all, Not been around for ages, due to one thing and another. But I have made a new game, and it's one that you might actually like - it's Wally Week in Medication Mania, and it's a sort-of sequel to the Spectrum games. You can get it here . Comments always appreciated... :) jimbo (and aliases)

Very true - I'd rather see it and make up my own mind than not see it at all...
