Games you wanted but never got?

(apologies if there is already a thread for this but I didn't see it.) Were there any games you saw in magazines that you really wanted but never got round to getting. I always wished I had Populus 2 and Landstalker on Mega Drive. I never saw them in shops and it didn't occur to me I could get a sho...

Re: Food/Drink from the past

I was upset the other week to not find Cadbury Snaps on the shelf.

Re: How does anyone buy a porn magazine in a paper shop?

I had the classic "finding mags in bushes" at school. Our school backed onto a wood and there was a big pile of soggy mags to be found every month or so. We would go and study them, but we werent turned on. More like curious archaeologists trying to study hieroglyphics. The letters and stories were ...

Re: Food/Drink from the past

This thread, full of things that have been cut down in their prime. On the other side of the coin there's the inexplicable stuff that seems to survive no matter what. Those things that really should be retro by now, and essentially are retro when you get right down to it, but somehow they're still ...

that porn thread NSFW!!

I've always gone in paper shops and seen lots of porn mags on the shelf with an older lady or an attractive young lady behind the counter, and I think, how does anyone go up to that counter, with a pretty woman there and hand a porn mag over to give her the money for it. Even if it was a seedy old m...

Re: Latest seen new retro games on sale?

its a thought though what happens to old stuff when the shop doesnt sell it? It all goes to the Works and Poundland, or sits in warehouses for years?

Re: Films you REALLY wanted to see at the cinema?

I'd like to have seen the Burton Batmans at the cinema as I saw all 4 movies since at cinema. At least I got to see Mr Nanny (hulk hogan) on the big screen as it was meant to be shown.

Re: How does it feel?

It is weird to think how amazing arcade games were back then. I remember every time the dingy arcade in town got a new game, like the new Mortal Kombat, we'd all go, not even to play just to look and see the graphics and watch others matches, it was so exciting to see how real it looked compared to ...

Re: Batman - The Animated Series

Also I did not get into Beyond... Beyond and Batman and Robin coming out at the same time was a hard sucker punch to make a kid get bored of Batman. The comics were dull then too. The newer Brave and Bold is awesome imo and has the 90s show feel.

Re: The godfather trilogy

I'm a fan of the movies. Its interesting what unseen scenes were in the dvd boxset, loads. I saw a Godfather photo book in "the works" that had photos of scenes that werent in the movies or dvds, like Michaels wedding and honeymoon in Sicily.

Re: Latest seen new retro games on sale?

That would have been awesome, I was always curious about the early 32 bits when they came out and dreamed of having something like it. Often I wish I could just go back in time with a Megadrive, Jaguar, Snes and N64 with all the games I got cheap now and give it to my 9 year old self, he would have ...

Amiga CD..?

I remember when I was a kid of about 11 my best friend had an Amiga CD 32 that his older brother had given him having gotten bored of it. I really liked playing the games round his house like Cannon Fodder and thought it was a lot better than my mega drive. ( I know now Cannon Fodder was on mega dri...
