Re: Gaming TV Shows

I was thinking of something that would have a broader appeal. The closest thing I can think of to what I mean would be the toy programmes that James May has made. You don't have to be into the toys to watch the programmes - they just show you how cleverly designed the toys are and illustrate their p...

Gaming TV Shows

I was just wondering why there aren't any decent gaming TV shows and wondered if any of you had any thoughts. Given how much money the games industry makes these days, and how big midnight launches always make the news, you'd think someone somewhere would try to find a workable format. Most recently...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

After finally getting all my Megadrive stuff in one place at the weekend I've decided to add to the collection (not so much decided to as failed to resist the temptation actually).

Re: Shinobi vs Rolling Thunder

Tough one. Rolling Thunder looks better imho - I just love the design of the baddies. Shinobi was easier though, which meant you could get further on a single credit. It also had a cool first person bonus stage. Another plus point was that I always got a kick out of seeing 'Spider-Man'. In terms of ...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi all, My name's James, I'm 37 years old and I've been gaming for about as long as I can remember. In fact, I can't actually remember what was the first game I ever played. I grew up in Great Yarmouth and trips to the arcades were fairly regular so it would have been some old coin-op or possibly th...
