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

Trip into Croydon this weekend left me £40 lighter! I found a nice Atari Lynx carry case, a Philips CD-I FMV cartridge, so now all my CD-I's have a one, and the Domark Star Wars games on the Atari St.

Re: From The Forum issue 174 - Your favourite Xbox game

Not being a mega-fan of the X-Box, the only game I spent anytime on was Project Gotham. A mate and me would challenge each other with lap times and just normal racing, got quite intense at times!

Re: Retro Games Shops, Arcades/Barcades, Gaming Museums/Exhibits & Retro Gaming Events Listing

I believe the people who owned the shop increased the rent and they simply couldn't cover their overheads. Sad, but that's how the high street is these days.

Re: Retro Games Shops, Arcades/Barcades, Gaming Museums/Exhibits & Retro Gaming Events Listing

Nice post! I can confirm that Retro Game Base has now closed down (sadly!) Heart Of Gaming in Croydon is turn-up, pay £10 per person, and all machines/consoles are on freeplay for as long as they are open. The owner/proprietor is a top guy, it's very much a work-in-progress kinda place at the moment...

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

Dynablaster for the Gameboy for £5 and Bomberman Land 2 for the DS for £10, not tried either yet, but as usual they will be cracking little games, and my lack of skill/dexterity will be the ultimate fail!

Re: TV Troubles

Could you not have claimed on your house insurance? I know its a bit dishonest, but a small accident whilst moving it downstairs and the money for a new tv! (disclaimer: I have NEVER done this myself but I do know people who have!)

Re: Games genres that you just don't like

I can't stand games like World Of Warcraft, mostly because I'm rubbish at them. I'm also crap at games like Populus, I just can't get myself into them.

Re: Anyone went computing/video gaming at school?

First school was a BBC Micro, with the monitor on a stand on wheels. If we were good in class, we'd play Grannie's Garden as a class effort. I don't remember even touching a computer in middle school, in Secondary, they had BBC Master with Interword embedded. Always remember having to type '*IW.' at...

Starfox 64 3D, seemed like a must own.
Is it any good?
It's not bad at all, controls are a bit of a halfway house though.
I agree, but I suck something bad at it though!

Re: PlayStation games backwards compatibility

If you want a PS3 to run PS2 games, you will need an early 60gb model. These aren't the most reliable PS3's around, quite prone to overheating (like the one I have does) and I think there are problems with some PS2 games that don't work, but no idea which ones. As far as I'm aware, no other UK-relea...

Re: Deadpool, the most complained about film in 2016

I really wish I had nothing better to do than complain about the content of films. What a sad life these people must live, all wrapped in cotton wool and shielded from all the bad things. Grow a pair of balls you sad idiots, get a life and just remember, a film is a means of escape from life, in mos...
