New C64 in shops this June

I read the headline and thought "Really? I'd like that a lot!"

I doubt its an actual standalone proper C64 that runs C64 software, but I still want one just because of the name!

Re: Grange hill

There was a Grange Hill reunion a few months back, where loads of them met up at a nightclub. Erkan Mustafa, who played Row-land, sent me a script signed by loads of ex-cast members. If anyone wants to see the reunion vids, to see how badly they've all aged, it's here - http://intratentjournal.com/g...

Re: Gamestation retro prices! Oddest one ever today

On the subject of crazy GameStation prices, I've seen them rise when in the bargain bin. You're lucky you have a bargain bin! (Gawd, I sound like the Four Yorkshiremen Sketch!) They were selling a boxed Dreamcast Shenmue set (all 4 discs) for £15.00 a year ago, and Sonic Adventure 2 for £14.00. I t...

Re: Gamestation retro prices! Oddest one ever today

Whenever I've taken retro stuff in to see if they will take it, they have no idea what it is because they're all only about 16.

I have to travel a few towns down to find a shop that stocks retro now.

Re: Today

Today, I've just rediscovered the Retro Gamer forum.

I have no idea why I strayed away, other than I lost all my bookmarks about a year ago, but I'm glad you're all still here!

Re: OutRun Online Arcade

I did experience that glitch where you end up bouncing around last night. It seems to be when you're near the back of the group and the leader has chosen to go one way but you go the other way. It doesn't seem to put the barrier up to show you which way you have to go. If you're near the back, you c...

Re: OutRun Online Arcade

Absolutely loving it!

Had a quick online race against Sureshot earlier, but I had to "down controller", be an adult for a while and get some shopping in.

Now that tedious real-life stuff is out of the way, I'll be back on in a few mins.
