Re: Fighting Fantasy

I just picked it up at the local post office and checked the contents. Everything's intact and apart from the box itself, it looks almost new :D I've seen these cost 30-40 euros and they've sometimes not even been complete so this was a very lucky strike at that price.. I'll have to try and get the ...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

I should also get my Christmas present to myself tomorrow, the tabletop version of Warlock of Firetop Mountain. Cost me 10 euros + p&p so it was a steal if it's in good condition with everything intact as promised. Can I come round to your house to play? :) Anytime, just bring lots of beer and cris...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Tin Man Games has provided the Humble Bundle links to the Kickstarter backers who pledged to get the older games as well. I have quickly tested Forest of Doom earlier and it felt nice, so maybe I'll give the games a go during the holidays. I should also get my Christmas present to myself tomorrow, t...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Backed immediately!

Too bad that I've missed many interesting Kickstarters. Is there some list of new projects available? It might be useful to take a look from time to time.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 145

The Bruce Lee article was a nice one, I liked it, also The Bard's Tale one was good. I never knew that there were so many problems with the creation of the series. I do recall playing the first game on the C64 on a cassette..talk about a major pain in the butt there :x Did you notice that Andrew Bra...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 143

I have to confess: I had never ever heard of Repton :oops: A small note regarding the Max Payne article: the real name of the writer is Sami Järvi (a rather direct translation to English is Sam Lake, though). In addition to writing the story, he lent his looks to the first Max Payne incarnation. He ...

Re: Pirate games. Yarr!

By the way, which special skills did you choose in the beginning? I always chose skill at medicine to keep on playing as long as possible with the same character.

Re: Pirate games. Yarr!

You have to have a large force in a small town. If you do, the option of choosing the nationality of the new governer is automatically given. Remember once going on a rampage and turning nearly everything English! I used to love "travelling" southwards from St. Eustatius and plundering all the smal...

Re: Pirate games. Yarr!

I love Pirates! on the C64, the floppy version. Damn hard it is now that I've tried it after all these years. It was a great game on the Amiga as well and still looks real nice.

Re: Amiga advice

I dug out my yellow A500 some weeks ago and gave it a go. All the disks seemed to work fine :) I didn't even get frustrated at the loading times, that's how nostalgic I felt.

In case you need to get a USB mouse or joystick working in your Amiga, I can recommend this: http://retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=proje ... e=rys_mkii

Re: in 80's warsaw c64 games were broadcast over the radio!

In Finland, we had a weekly program broadcast on the national radio which did a similar thing. They were broadcasting some user-made games if I remember correctly. I do remember recording some but not many of them worked as I had not yet learned of The Secret of the Azimuth.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

What on earth were the black bars at the end of the paragraphs in the Disasters article? At first glance I thought that they were censored parts of the text :mrgreen:

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 140

I liked the SSI article, I remember the company fondly for the Gold Box games. However, I was disappointed that Roadwar 2000 and Roadwar Europa got very little, if any, attention. It would be nice to have a post-apocalypse games article focusing on other games than the usual Wasteland or Fallout ser...
