Re: Insert Coin: Inside Midway's '90s Revolution (Kickstarter)

Yeah , a shame the backers can't get to see it while they take it round the festivals. At least it's been made & we'll get to see it eventually, unlike some Kickstarters!

Re: Video game documentaries?

I love the Speccy Addict films, some really good interviews with the folks that made some of my favourite games and magazines from that era. I'm glad to have backed all 3 on Kickstarter.

Re: The Star Wars thread

Saw it last night & absolutely loved it.

So glad the internet wasn't around in the 80s to tell me how wrong I was about loving the original trilogy.

Re: Android game recommendations

I'm pretty late to the party, but Arkanoid Vs Space Invaders is a great investment. A fiver is a bit steep for an Android game (I know right!) but well worth a punt as there's no freemium garbage, no ads, no DLC, no pay to win or any of that business. Just a straight up fun game that uses the touch ...

Re: From the Forum - Issue 199: Shareware

I wish I could remember what it was called. It was a Missile Command clone & it was the greatest version of Missile Command I've ever played...but I've never been able to find it since!

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I hated Age of Ultron, it was the only Avengers film I didn't like. Maybe it's time for a rewatch & re-appraisal.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 195

On a major catch up of issues on a rare lazy Sunday afternoon. I really enjoyed this issue, Spiderman, Amiga Power & Konami articles are all great. However, I've just read the Nintendo DS "Hardware Heaven" & it's bugged me so much I am disproportionately incandescent with rage! "around the turn of t...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Spiderman 2 (the new one). Really good, maybe better than the first one. I've completely lost track of the Spider Man films. In the last 18 years we've had 3 reboots spanning 7 films & an animated spin off & quite a few cameos in the MCU it's no wonder you're confused. I think I know Spiderman's or...

Only just spotted this! Cheers, I managed to pick up some old carts in the end. I've relabeled them Real Sports Soccer is now FIFA '82 & Pele's Soccer is now George Best's Soccer...purely for my own amusement! https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2128555313899140&id=136205879800770&set=a.6559885511...

Re: Iain Lee

Great stuff. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a break for a few years & then come back to something with renewed enthusiasm.

I find the love of retro & gaming in general comes in waves & it's great when you get the buzz back.
