Re: The Game Gadget

I've been following this thread with interest and have tried to help by marking the fake amazon reviews as unhelpful, and the honest reviews as helpful. So called *shill reviews* are the scourge of Amazon and should be exposed wherever and whenever possible! Here's a great article on so called *shi...

Re: Retro Bookazine no.6

I'm not against the ST, FWIW, but when you're talking about reprint two-part bookazines, you need enough in the bank, and I can't think of that many ST-specific pieces in the mag. Fair point... but this only really highlights the need for RG to give the ST more coverage in the future. I had an ST a...

Re: ZX Spectrum/Commodore 64 book

Saw a couple of copies of it the other day in Exeter's whsmiths, unfortunately they were so dog-eared and mangled i'd be surprised *anyone* would pick them up and buy them. Should have been 1/2 price or something, at least. There are 2 heavily damaged ZX Spectrum/Commodore books left in my local WH...

Re: What were/are your favourite Boardgames?

I've still got a stack of boardgames from the '80s in the spareroom... just never got rid of them for some reason. :mrgreen: Anyway, here's a couple of favourites I played a lot back in the day.

Re: The Game Gadget

>RE the 5 star reviews on Amazon. Funny thing about these reviews is that by some random coincidence they seemed to appear shortly after I first pointed out the 1 star reviews at Amazon on page 15 of this thread!!! It could be coincidence... or this thread could just be being monitored by GG HQ. :l...

Re: The Game Gadget

A nice little article which outlines the GG story so far...

There are some quotes (new????) attributed to a GameGadget spokeperson at the very bottom that address the current situation.

Re: The Game Gadget

That person was actually me!! I really was stunned by that reply and thats what prompted me to file for a refund. I have been a GG owner from day 1 and it has really been the worst experience for me as a keen retro gamer and consumer. Things were bad before and when they said they were handing the ...

Re: The Game Gadget

Given the ongoing problems with the GameGadget, I guess one could be forgiven for thinking they were conducting a live beta test of the Hardware/Software! Thorough, proper and extensive testing of the whole system (hardware + software) should have been completed inhouse months before launch. It's co...

Re: Need an ISP recomendation (with W98 support)

you'll only need the drivers to configure the router, so id suggest doing that on your XP machine, then once that's all set up and working run an Ethernet cable from the router to your 98 machine and it should work fine Yes. Do this! I currently still use Win98 (SE) on my main PC. MY ISP is Orange,...

Re: Packaging

Ive been meaning to bring this up for a while now. Im a bit of a sucker for having and keeping stuff in mint condition. This isnt currently possible as far as my RG magazines are concerned. They nearly always arrive with some form of damage done to them, usually on the spine. Nothing major (most of...

Re: The Game Gadget

I wouldn't believe everything they say, I take that press release with a pinch of salt, for me it sounds like they have struggled with sales slashed the price and released that press statement to convince people they won't be buying into a failing product and that those who already have done needn'...

Re: The Game Gadget

They have also taken on board comments in the community in regard to the price of games, which will be repriced to 2.99 instead of 4.99, and 9.99 for lots of ten. This does not quite match the press release they made a few days ago which went something like: 'Using the GameGadget Marketplace Applic...

Re: The Pixel Nation is Formed

Got my copy in post today. My first impressions are that teething problems aside it's a very slick and professional production. The smaller profile is a good idea too. I'm impressed. :D It's just a real shame that mine arrived blighted with some seriously heavy damage to the top the the spine... thi...
