Re: What works with an Amazon stick

I do have one of those Bluetooth Speccy Keyboards, but I've never got round to pairing it with the firestick. I like the idea of playing spectrum games on it but I'm not sure it's worth the faff of sideloading emulators & whatnot. I am very lazy. Would be nice if you could use QAOPspace with the gam...

Re: What works with an Amazon stick

I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing I've got a firestick & was going to buy the sega bundle. https://www.digitalspy.com/tech/best-tech-deals/a25581262/play-sonic-amazon-fire-tv-sega-classics/ And the joypad is currently very cheap in Debenhams at the minute... https://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...

Re: Bandersnatch

Really odd to see my non-computer geeky friends discussing Bandersnatch in the last few days.

I wonder what these files would fetch today.

Re: Sonic retro bundle

Unless your PC is over a decade old or broken, you might do better than you think as all the games in the $1 tier have very low system requirements. Funny you shpuld say that, it's 11 years old and I have to selotape the power lead in so it doesn't switch itself off when I'm using it. :lol: :lol: a...

Ooooh that looks a great site, I have a feeling that I'll be sent down a nostalgia rabbit hole with this one, cheers!

Re: What did you buy at the carboot today ??

Got my first bargain in yonks in our local charity shop. I picked up Super Mario 64 DS for a quid. The woman behind the counter said it was actually 2 games for a pound at the minute, but there was nothing much else there & besides I felt bad enough as it was getting it for a quid so I didn't want t...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Gandalf Deluxe and Old Tower are insane! Had to get them running on the actual hardware through my DivIDE to prove they were capable of running on a real speccy.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Ive been playing a bit of Spectrum homebrew recently & it's amazing how far some folk have managed to push the machine. A bit late to the party (about a decade I believe) but I was playing Batteries not Precluded, really clever idea where it's sort of like Micro Machines...but you're playing against...

Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

The way I'm wired, I could live to 100 years old & still not consider anything post Megadrive/SNES era "retro"

I'm permanently stuck thinking 8-bit is the recent past, 16-bit is the present, everything after is just for the kids & I'm still waiting for the Stone Roses' 2nd album.

Re: Battle Princess Madelyn

Rats! I thought this was supposed to have been coming to the Wii U, I guess it just wouldn't have been worth their while.

Looks amazing.

**EDIT**

Apparently a Wii U version will follow...will be picking that up for sure!!! :D

Help! Remembering an 80s UK sitcom.

It was literally called "Help!" & was about 3 unemployed Scousers. I have never seen it repeated, released on VHS or DVD or any YouTube clips at all. I've found the odd sketchy bit of info about it online (for example in my muddled memory, I always thought Craig Charles was in it...he wasn't!) Anywa...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

True, I remember my parents playing the likes of Space Invaders & Breakout in the early 80s, they'd have been in their late 30s early 40s...but would never pick up a joystick or joypad since.
