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

Ha yeah the are fun when the break! It's not so bad with a regular MegaCD box because you can get a brand new CD jewel case and use the back of that... but those custom boxes for 3DO, Mega CD and Dreamcast are weak and a pain.

Re: Tetris 99

I had no thought to consider looking at the instructions for any depth, I was just blindly playing Tetris for as long as possible. Anyone hazard a guess as to why this is free? Encourage people to use Nintendo Switch Online is the only thing I can think of. I don't remember seeing any microtransacti...

Re: PS4 on Credit?

I don't want to sounds preachy (but here I go anyway)... it's a good idea to pay off your overdraft first, your dad's words are wise, mine uttered similar and as much as it pains me to say he's right, it has stood me in good stead. Let's say you did buy that PS4 in your overdraft... that's on credit...

Re: Is the Wii U still worth getting in 2019?

I have a Wii U and loved that console but personally I'd get a Switch I can't afford a Switch for reasons detailed in the PS4 thread I posted in off-topic. The Wii U appeals because it can be had for in and around £100. I just want to know how internet dependant it is and whether it's likely to be ...

Re: Is the Wii U still worth getting in 2019?

I have a Wii U and loved that console but personally I'd get a Switch: many of the best games have or are getting Switch versions. Developers never really used the screen properly but certainly one of the things that people loved about the Wii U, myself included was 'off TV play' i.e. someone else c...

Re: Something I need to say and some advice needed

I'm know I have said some things that having got older, I would look back on and think, what a tool.

It took some courage to post that Sega2006, fair play to you.

Re: From the forum: 192

I loved the first few minutes of Robocop 2 on the Amiga... only the first few mind as his mum was paranoid it would overheat and so when it warmed up she'd make us turn it off.

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Both Twitter and Facebook are terrible sites for having a conversation - Twitter because of brevity and Facebook because the structure sucks, no organisation just a cacophony of noise.

Re: cost and lack of freebies for existing Subscribers

Freebies usually are a loss leader to entice you in to subscribing - look at just about any games mag going back decades, or even any magazine or newspaper at all, they all have some deal for new subscribers a freebie of X issues for £1 each, or whatever. As I said in the last thread about this, you...
