Re: RG summer holidays 2014

Not summer holiday related, but do you have any tips where to go in the UK except London? I've been there once, over 10 years ago, and at some point want to revisit UK. I'd just like to see some other interesting places too (interesting to the wife as well, I'm afraid :mrgreen: ) What comes to summe...

Re: Best 80's action film

Must be Commando, the no 1 movie to watch when hangover. I always laugh my a** off in the scene where the jeep cannot be used because there is a huge bunch of wires under the bonnet :lol: Or when Arnie falls from the sky to the lake on his butt but it looks like he only fell for like one meter or so..

Re: From the forum issue 129 - Worst sticking points

Skool Daze - the 10-year-old me didn't understand what to do so I just ended up causing mayhem. Which was nice.

Re: The Missing Retro Gamer features

Football Manager Handheld is supposed to be a simple version of SI's Football Manager but for some reason I cannot get myself to play it on my tablet. I wonder if Kevin Toms will ever finish his reincarnation of the original Football Manager. It's been quite long in the making. And yes, RG, if you e...

Re: How getting older affects what games you like

I have noticed that I have a problem with too complex controls. Complex in a way that I need to remember a dozen different key/button combinations which is just unbearable because I really don't have the time to concentrate properly. Back in the day, various shortcut buttons etc. were never a problem.

Re: The Missing Retro Gamer features

Here's another reader supporting a (long) CM/FM article :) In fact, why not cover the whole history of football management games. There were some interesting games back in the day (The Manager etc..) I think I was one of the last ones to create a public database update for CM97/98, a great game it w...

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Dungeon Master isn't that hard once you get the hang of it (read: reincarnate the champions and get them to stay alive past the first purple worm level).

Chaos Strikes Back is something that can bring a tear of frustration to anybody's eye :twisted:

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Saving in DM works fine for me. The game asks for a save disk in C: but still saves normally and the game is resumable.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

This week I finally fired up DosBox Turbo and ScummVM. Dungeon Master and Day of the Tentacle are still great and using the touchscreen works very well.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 127

I liked the cover, brings back a memory or two. We didn't have any arcades nearby but the local supermarkets had a few cabinets. Oh and I tried to find a Strider cabinet from the cover but couldn't :shock: :lol: I never played Fairlight but maybe I should, it looks interesting. I would have liked to...

Re: Your one favourite game. Any format. Ever.

Has to be Pirates! on the C64. I've got loads of happy memories of playing it with a friend of mine. I tried playing it on WinVICE some time ago and it still had that something - for some reason I really did not like the reboot released a few years ago.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Sorry, should have been a bit more clear. I'm talking about the Collyer brothers' games (Sports Interactive). I recall reading that there is the possibility to have a sandbox-like Windows 98 SE installed but I don't know how well they run any games.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

I'd like to fire up some old Championship/Football Manager games on an Android tablet. Is there any way to get those running?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

Slightly OT, but anyone interested in the history of computer RPGs might find "Dungeons and Desktops" by Matt Barton also interesting.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

His first comment to Andrew Hewson on that cover was "I'll kill you" :mrgreen: He wrote quite a lot in the few Finnish computer magazines (regarding game design, reviews etc.) and seemed to be a very keen gamer himself. It really is sad that he passed away since the Finnish scene was quite small in ...
