Didn't someone commit suicide after that Ghostwatch program? I remember there being an absolute sh*t storm in the media about it. It scared the hell out of me and my friends when we watched it probably not helped by being woken by two cats fighting in my back garden at three in the morning. You'll u...

Ah i completely forgot about Oink. that was a great read. I used to have trouble getting hold of it from my local newsagents because the woman their must have been the Welsh Mary Whitehouse. If i remember correctly the magazine used to rip into her all the time.

Thats where the Gradius games had a slight adavantage as when you died you at least had a chance to pick some of your items back up. R Type was pretty unforgiving when you died, normally it was just easier to restart.

Neo Geo Pocket

Im toying with the idea of picking one up pretty soon. After reading the article in the latest mag im just wondering what people views of them are and if they really are worth getting or is it better and cheaper to run an emmulator on a PSP?

Its still got some pretty nasty stuff in it suprisingly. One of the Stontium Dog stories from about three years ago was pretty nasty, sending peoples souls into hell to bring an evil thing back. Add in murder, exploding eyeballs, black magic and the nastiest descent into hell possible and it was a p...

Speaking of faults with the game was their a problem with the C64 Hit Squad version of the game? I must have had about 10 copies from various stores around Wrexham when it came out and none of them would work

As for the game itself i still cant get past level 3 to this day.

I was quite lucky to pick up a massive load of Transformers for £10 a couple of months ago, which brought back some very fond memories of being a kid. Also alot of the early Games Worksh...

Moomins. God knows what it is about them but they still scare the hell out of me to this day. I've only recently just seen Threads and i have to say although its pretty low budget it really is chilling to watch. Id advise anybody to try to watch it. Also When The Wind Blows that was kind of unerving...

Marvel Vs Capcom 2 Grandia 2 Streetfighter 3 3rd Strike Shenmue 2 Rez I've managed to get most of these for under a tenner in very good co...
