Re: The Player Manager 2015

I'll certainly give it a go, PM was one of my favourites on the Amiga.

Re: All about the handhelds

No, sorry for the "confusing" text (I'm not a Brit so English is my second language). Those are the two games that I still have from my youth, others have disappeared in time :x The games are not in a good condition, DKJR is very, very yellow :mrgreen: Fortunately there's nothing wrong with the scre...

Re: All about the handhelds

Just found my two remaining G&W games last week, Mickey Mouse and Donkey Kong Jr. (panorama). DK is still very addictive after all these years!

Re: From The Forum Issue 140

The tunes from the first Lemmings game seem to haunt me as well even to this day :lol:

Re: Discuss Time! Issue 140 Retro Bargains

I got a Sam Coupe for 200 euros last year. They seem to be quite rare in the market and cost quite a lot..not selling mine though :D

Re: Text Adventures feature?

Has Magnetic Scrolls been covered in some past issue? Which reminds me of a question I've meant to ask - whatever happened to Anita Sinclair? After all, she was one of the top women in the games industry back in the 80s.

Re: Star Trek

I like to watch TOS and TNG episodes at times on Saturday evenings. I only have a problem with the Klingon episodes of TNG, can't stand the honour this, honour that blahblah.

Still, the worst moment of TNG must be Wesley stating "We are from Starfleet. We do not lie!" Urgh..

Re: Searching for old Isometric action games recommendation

The Last Ninja series is excellent but very difficult. Oh my goodness me. How could I forget The Last Ninja series? They were top of the tree. The C64 versions are rock hard by today's standards but if you play them with save States they're very doable. Alternatively Amiga Ninha Remix is more palat...

Re: Elite Dangerous

Is it required to have a proper joystick or is the mouse and keyboard combo still possible to use (and survive)?

Re: Elite Dangerous

:D

I never asked for a refund so need to ask this question: is the new Elite too hard to grasp for someone who doesn't give it time? From what I've read, it seems to require quite a lot to make it. I do have access to the gamma version but haven't tried it out yet.

Re: Whats your favorite xmas film?

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation gets my vote too. It's silly but funny, yet I can imagine somewhere there is a Griswold family there.

Re: Black Riot Day

I got me an Asus Chromebox for $119,99 + shipping + taxes at Amazon, makes a bit under 150 euros. It's cheap compared to the local shops which sell the thing for 200 euros. Now I just need to find out what it requires to run some emulators (along with the media center usage) :D

Re: Aging retro gamers & health

What does cause damage to some extent is more how we use them. Staring at them for long periods, blinking less, can cause dryer eyes and eye strain. A short break every now and then to make a cuppa or go to the loo is sufficient to minimise this usually. In addition to giving your eyes a break, you...

Interesting. Ok, added to my new diet is oily fish. (will get some D tabs as well)... :) Don't go overboard though as you can OD on Vit D if you pardon the pun. Choose, one method only since there was an experiment done in the early 20th century whereby people were given high doses of Vit D and it ...
