White lines - finished it finally

This was quite hyped up on Netflix. Started off okay but got very bored of it. Watched it to the end but it wasn’t great sadly

Snowpiercer next
We watched White Lines. We stuck with it, but it got a bit ridiculous by the end.

Re: My new game for AMSTRAD CPC (and new website)

I've always thought of it like a retro pub. Imagine such a place - you walk in, have a beer and start talking to the locals about your favourite games and systems, before you know it you've made some new friends.

Re: Coronavirus

It's the lying and covering up that makes it worse. You get done for speeding, you get 3 points and £100 fine. You try and cover it up, say your passenger was driving, then you could end up in prison. The lack of shame, elitism and some sort of responsibility is what gets people annoyed.

^Wow never seen it ?

Did you like it ? The two films are decent to watch, some scenes are classic but theyre not as good as the series.

But the Inbetweeners is funny as hell
I've never seen it, but am really enjoying Friday night dinner atm, on the 6th season now

Re: Conversion Capers feels lazy

Hey I think the CPC version of Hard Drivin is pretty good. I didn't call it 'unplayable' or summarise that it was a 'complete write-off'. Here's what I wrote: "Oh dear. Besides a nice Mode 1 dashboard, this is a hasty port of the Spectrum version (the monochrome graphics and smaller screen size are...
