Re: Just picked up a new arcade game - Black Widow!

Congratulations - it's a great game. If I had room this is one of the machines I'd love to have. ... but since that is not the case I've made a remake for Windows and Mac :) Check it out and please let me know what you think. I've put a lot of work into getting the gameplay and rules as close to the...

Re: Avatar sizes

It's practical. No one needs huge animated GIFs and thousands of big files take up room on the server and slows things down. Simple ... I can't believe you have to ask.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 199

With all the previous articles on Doom, and having read the Masters of Doom book ... can there really be anything left to be said about Doom?

Another issue is often the text in the homebrew review section just describes the gameplay and doesn't really say what makes the game good or bad in any detail.
Yeah, this one bugs me too.

Re: From the forum: 192

That's a hard question - there are so many excellent Ocean games, but put on the spot I'd have to say Chase HQ.
Runners up would be Midnight Resistance, RoboCop and Where Time Stood Still.
There are more games that are technically better, but these are the ones that I enjoy the most.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

No thanks. They could at least include more than 20 games, but mostly I'm not interested because of the terrible graphics. I love pixel art, but 1996 polygons don't look so good anymore. But news about this has been posted twice in this very subforum today, so perhaps if all future comments could be...

Hopefully they'll actually release it some day. I would be fun to try it out.

The episode of The IT Crowd with Roy in a wheelchair had me in stitches, but really - most things in that show is brilliant :D

Re: Home Brew Section

I've made a new Spectrum game - a (much needed) remake of one of the worst Spectrum games ever: SQIJ I think that most Spectrum users will know that the official Spectrum version of SQIJ from 1987 is one of - if not the - worst game for the ZX Spectrum, so here is a remake of the original C64 versio...

Re: Spectrum Next - Will you buy one

Well, I backed the Kickstarter so I guess you can say I have bought one.
Hopefully it won't be too delayed - if at all - so I can have some fun with it in a month or so.
... but for now I'm coding for it using an emulator :)

Just bought it from WHSmiths and now going to have a milkshake at Coffee Corner. First thing I've bought on my own as a matter of fact!
Good to see there's younger people on the board too and not just us old farts. :lol:

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

I still love my Spectrum and it's still fun to play today, although it's mostly being fed newer releases.
And when I say "it" I mean through emulation as I can't be bothered to take out any of my real Spectrums.
Most of my enjoyment these days comes from coding it though.
