ZX Spectrum/Commodore 64 book

Out of stock in the Imagine store. Just found out about it yesterday in the new issue of the magazine. D'oh. Any chance of it coming back into stock so I can order?

Re: Who gets collection urges?

I definitely have this problem. I get an urge to collect a specific group of games and I start obsessing over it. Currently on a Treasure kick. I have 14 of their games, trying to get the rest.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Lavilian: On my last trip to LA I hit a store called GameDude. www.gamedude.com. Got a copy of Dragon Force for Saturn and a few other goodies. Also found a neat import shop in Santa Monica, in a shopping center a block or two away from Ocean Park Blvd. Can't remember the name, but they had some fan...

Re: If you could own any item or object from a game...

Not really my favorite game in the world, but for the past few years I've asked the wife to have a Hammer of Dawn installed in my car. I encounter too many crappy drivers on the road. I'd like to paint them with a little laser and have a massive beam of light come down from a satellite to destroy th...

Re: Playstation 3 is killing the Games Industry?

And yeah, as people have said, it's the mega hits that fund all the new titles. But the pubs are generally making foolish decisions regarding the new titles, which is why you see so many fail. Some companies are smarter about it. Take Two is an example, but they're no winner either because they're s...

Re: Playstation 3 is killing the Games Industry?

I've been working professionally in the games industry for five years. In that time I've shipped 13 titles (and worked on 4 canceled titles) as either a contractor or full time employee. Based on that experience I see four major things that are holding the industry back. Ask someone else and I'm sur...

A small group of us at work have been toying with it and it's impressive.

Buying European games in the US

So there's the odd game that got a European release but not US. Last Window: The Secret of Cape West. It's a sequel to Hotel Dusk, a game of which my wife is a HUGE fan. I'd like to purchase a copy of it, but we're in the states and a US release isn't looking likely according to the magic ball of th...

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

Favorites were Killer 7, Metroid Prime and Eternal Darkness. I liked the dark games on the Cube. Underrated system.

Re: The PSP collecting thread

We've got 77 games for it. It's a system that wasn't really important to us, but in the last year or so we've seen some great games for it. I'm currently playing Ys Seven and can't put it down, looking forward to the other remakes in the coming months. I hope they get round to 4, 5 and Origins. Afte...
