The postage issue is really doing my nut in. People who charge high postage prices please take note of this. I came across a seller who had 12 Cds that i was interested in. For each CD he had a starting price of £1.50 but a postage rate of £4 by second class. I emailed him to see if he would combi...

General opinion on the cube is that it is an excellent console with some amazing games to pick up both retro and modern. You just have to put Res Evil 4 on to shut up most of its detractors.

I don't think the seller would complain about multiple last minute bids. They'll be laughing all the way to the bank. It is annoying though if its an item you've been watching out for, for ages.

What i hate off ebay is, People who bid on stuff and then don't bother to pay for it. Stupid postage and packaging prices especially after the auctions finished. If its one lesson i've learned its don't bid on anything without shipping costs shown on it. Paypal. There just a pain in the ass to deal ...

I think its been written about in Retro Gamer that their is alot of Retro Arcades in North Wales, especially in the Rhyl and Colwyn Bay area, none in Wrexham anymore though. I wouldn't recommend going to any though the amount of Chavs, smack heads and general nutters that live in these areas though.

Yeah ill agree with you on that. I've seen too many decent bands destroyed by journalists especially from a certain weekly magazine that is a pile of Kerrrap.

Dragonforce album is good though.

Is that Dragonforce album any good? I've seen the single on TV and its sounds pretty decent.

I don't really trust the reviews done in alot of magazines after seeing what a unthruthful little bunch of sods musical journalists can be.

Threads has just been re released on DVD. For some reason the original press was very limited and it used to go for £70 a pop on ebay. Seems its really popular abroad.

Its always good to look back on found computer memories especially playing Starship Command on my Acorn Electron or getting each new computer that i've had. For me though seeing FF7 for the first time when was in university after not playing games for a while is probably my most nostalgic memory. Ba...
