Re: RIP <Insert celebrity>

I don't know Luke Perry but I don't have much sympathy for Keith Flint. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that taking a drugs throughout your life is without consequence.

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

It makes me wonder how it is for Daz under this regime, not that he could comfortably discuss it here. I don't think the mag teams have ever been particularly comfortable talking about corporate stuff (neither should they). I'm thinking back to when people used to complain about the porn phone numb...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

However, if there was some drive to abandon forums as a matter of policy, I can't imagine Joe and his team would have been allowed to start big jobs like the major upgrades they're involved in elsewhere. During a recent presentation to shareholders, the one big thing that the C-suite of the company...

Re: Best way of removing fine scratches and scuffs from cases

This is an area I've not explored much - I'd be interested to learn what others do as well.

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.
