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...

Re: Wanted: Atari 2600 Soccer games

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.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 193

Still catching up with last month's mag, a lot of good reading in there. Enjoyed the Mortal Kombat article, like many people I haven't played any if them since MK2 so it was interesting to see how it's evolved over the years. Loved the Mastertronic article, would love it to have been 35 pages instea...

Yes, enjoying WWDITS, I liked the film, but it definitely works better in 25 minute bursts.

Re: Streets of Rage 2

It's an evergreen title.

If you're at a gaming event & there's a spare megadrive sitting about , it's always a fun playthrough with a beer & a mate.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 194

Mine just arrived today. Looking forward to cracking into that Skool Daze article.

Although I would've loved to have seen a Skool Daze cover, I guess Burnout is more commercial & I really like the artwork on the subscriber version.

The letters page is good this month too. :wink:

Re: Master System must haves?

Wow Dudley! Hello there. I am amazed the Master System had much of a life after the Megadrive was released. The machine & games wern't that much cheaper & the MD had that MS converter for anyone looking to upgrade. A definite underdog, it's amazing to see how far they pushed the commercial life & wh...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Rekindling my love of the Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance games. I've recently picked them up on the XBox & I'm starting them again from scratch.

I'd forgotten how much fun they are, really enjoying playing through the 1st one again.
