Re: The first games you completed.

Some of you have terrific memories (both in terms of nostalgia, but also your ability to recall such prehistoric events)! :D Had a couple of home computers like the Amiga and C64 so must have got to a few ending screens that weren't overly memorable during the 80s in early years. First home console ...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Cheers chaps. I forced myself to drive to work and back the last 2 days. Not perfect driving by any means but I made it which was encouraging. :) I may master the manual yet, but still tempted by the idea of an auto. :| Maybe I've missed it, but can't believe nobody noted that "gears" are grinding ...

Re: Clone Consoles

Time for a thread bump! I just came across this Game Boy Clone and thought it was really neat, it's exactly what you would expect a Game Boy to look like had they done a horizontally orientated version. https://i.imgur.com/CwxGHPU.jpg?1 Thats pretty cool - but what does it actually do? Just literal...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

That's all I want from a car, I just want to get from A to B as easy and safely as possible. My dad has an auto and said he'd let me have a go, I can only imagine it will be much preferable. I've not commited to the idea yet, got a few days to think on it, I'm 50/50 at the moment. :| Yep, autos are...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

My insurance cooling off period ends on Thursday and I'm wondering if I should just cut my losses now and try to find an automatic, everybody says I'll get the hang of the gas and clutch eventually but I just don't have faith in my ability to go when i want to at the moment, which could be dangerou...

Re: games where the original was best

Shenmue I think I'd agree with that based on personal experiences....i bothered to finish Shenmue, where as I think I only got about halfway through the second. I am not sure if its because Shenmue 1 was actually superior, or because the whole "Shenmue" novelty had worn off (think the sequel does h...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I've been watching the latest season of "Orange is the New Black" (Season 6?). Not everyones cup of tea, but I really enjoy the humour and that it has so many different and unusual characters in it, which the writers flesh out and develop, creating many interactions that you wouldn't expect. Oh, and...

Quite an unusual number of "characters" came on last night, some briefly and with little to say! Next time, don't be shy! :mrgreen:

See you all tonight, retro squares. I look forward to briefly observing a mystery guest log in, then disappear without saying anything (or getting booted by Spactor).

Re: Selling sealed Radiant Silvergun - looking for advice

£250 for Radiant Silvergun? I feel sorry for genuine collectors wishing to pay through the nose for stuff like this, when others just treat this industry as a business and way to make a quick quid. Its an awful lot of money for a jewel case, instructions and a compact disc with an ISO on, when you c...

Re: Streets of Rage 2 - Runs Slow WTF?

I thought the PAL 50Hz was probably TOO obvious a problem to point out here, since the OP did make the point that the speed of the other games were fine, and the intro music of SOR2 sounded normal. That said, if you're going to compare it to SOR 2 footage on youtube, it could likely be comparing 50h...
