Really enjoyed the Chris Shrigley and Total War pieces.
Kieren, it's a shame your piece misses out the amazing score table & attract sequence when talking about Bounty Bob Strikes Back.
I did take quite a few screenshots of it but you can't really do it justice in print.

Re: Master System must haves?

I just have a new Master System book out to add to the one that I wrote previously. I review over 150 games between the 2 volumes if you're interested.

Otherwise I recommend Ghost House, Choplifter, Fantasy Zone, Master of Darkness and Columns.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Well here's one for you! I got a malicious email that contained private info about me including my Hotmail password. So I tried to change it immediately. It kept saying it had sent a code to my mobile but I never got it. It gave an alternative of sending an email to my back-up, so I thought I would ...

That magazine covered the Game Boy too, and the SNES when that arrived, it wasn't just NES

Re: When was the NES released in the UK and the rest of Europe?

Initially it was exclusive to Boots I believe. Later on a few others stocked it like Dixons, Toys R Us and Argos but you never saw it in mainstream games stores. I've heard that only 600,000 NES consoles were sold in the UK and a large portion of them came late in its life with the launch of the £60...

Fantastic result for Spurs against Dortmund tonight.

Still the second leg to play though.

Bloody brilliant, especially when we have so many injuries.

I am surprised I'm still mid table.

I've lost Kane, Alli, De Bruyne and Gomez so far this season. FML

Re: Questions for Stoo Cambridge

Although you didn't list it there I believe Stoo worked on the enhanced version of International Sensible Soccer for the Jaguar.

So my question is - What was the Jaguar hardware like to work with it and do you wish you had done more games for it?

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 190

As a writer, I tend not to censor what someone else has written/said to me - the F word I always use asterisks for. But then, the most recent piece I submitted has the phrase "holy crap it worked" in; I left that in because it puts across what the person said and HOW they said it, echoing how they ...

Re: Ummmm..

That particular game is a crap Korean bootleg. Repros have been knocking around for a while now and eBay seem to be turning a blind eye to them even though they are far from legal. Homebrews have also been around for a while but the market format them is growing considerably with numerous companies ...

Re: Help classic mega drive console

Those are clones that don't use the original hardware, so not all games work on them.
