Re: The Guitarists Thread

I was looking at an LTD EC-401 in Olympic white a bit back. Still fancy one of those.
I did buy an EVH Striped Series though (red, black and white) and its the beans! The unfinished neck is really comfortable.

Re: Video Game sounds stuck in your head

Great topic and a few good suggestions so far. Especially the Speccy clicking cursor. A few that come to my mind regularly are all Spectrum related: The fart noise when you shoot something in Jetpac The Manic Miner jumping noise. You know you're gonna die when it passes a certain point. The title sc...

Re: So what is your best FPS then?

Doom is exactly what I want from an FPS, no story, no cut scenes, no fiddly controls where I forget what the 100 different button combinations do, just a vast amount of inventive enemies between me and the exit gate. That pretty much sums it up for me too. Can't be doing with faffing about. I admit...

Re: series that you are trying to complete.

I'm actually about to start a nice little project which involves collecting and reviewing the various versions of Shinobi and its sequels, up to and including Shinobi X.

BTW, did you pick up Final Fight CD yet? Thats a game I'd love to get my hands on.

Doom without question.

Everything else is just varying levels of 'not as good as Doom'!

I guess my inability to distinguish lettuce for cabbage is good evidence that I, myself, have been toking on the old crack pipe, lol.

Re: Three breasted woman

I think having three boobs is overlooking a vital component of a top rack, for me.....the cleavage.
Every top notch pair is defined by it.

If there was a lettuce growing game on the Speccy, I missed it.

This is the best random thread for ages! Have you been smoking crack?

Re: The Great Video Game Crash

And those who had the cash to afford one had an Amiga (majority) or ST (minority) Not really, the ST outsold the Amiga through most of the 80s. The Amiga only took over towards the very end of the decade and early 90s. I find this hard to believe (I'm not saying its untrue). I always thought the Am...
