Re: What Are Your Favourite C64 Games?

As a Speccy guy, the C64 was always seen as the "enemy" - much like the Mega Drive/SNES "war" a few years later! However, a number of my friends and Cousins had C64's, and there were some amazing games that I remember quite fondly... Little Computer People Chicago 30's The Human Race Mad Nurse Excal...

Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

No, not yet!

The PS3 is my favourite current/modern era console, and some PS3 games are most certainly on my all time favourite list (GTA IV, WWE 2K16, Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Borderlands), but I wouldn't consider it retro just yet, especially when there are still games being released...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Yes, Prime Minister was indeed on the Speccy and it's one of my all time favourite games. Much like the Adrian Mole titles, you can either try and make Jim Hacker do the right thing or you can make all the wrong decisions and muck it all up. There is also Hacker's approval rating to consider, anothe...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

In terms of TV Drama I'm really enjoying Informer and Berlin Station at the moment. I also really enjoy watching stuff like Ice Road Truckers, Deadliest Catch, Trawler Wars, Hardcore Pawn, and American Chopper. If I'm around when they're on I will always try to watch Have I Got News For You and Mock...

Re: gamesTM and GamesMaster to end

That is sad news, certainly about GamesMaster :( I've got so many issues from over the years as well as issue 1 and regularly enjoy going back through them. The internet certainly has been either directly or indirectly responsible for the decline of print media. Though I also feel it's often a lack ...

Re: From the forum: 188

The PS1 had so many great titles, but my favourites would be the original Grand Theft Auto, Discworld II, Theme Hospital and Abe's Oddysee

Re: Emuparadise Shuts Up Shop

Doesn't appear to be the case, sadly.

I've tried quite a few games over the past couple of days and the ROMS are still unavailable, at least for the Mega Drive.

Perhaps they plan to introduce them again slowly buy surely, but for now I've had no luck... :(

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Is there a full list of launch titles yet? On the one hand, this is really good as not only will bring people back to the PS1, but I also hope it will introduce younger folk to the PS1 as it did have some truly amazing games! GTA, Discworld II, Abe's Oddysee and Theme Hospital are still particular f...
