OK am I being thick or what?

My local was Spa Computer Centre in Leamington Spa...used to spend hours in there hoping they would have SOMETHING for my aging Electron.

I think it might still be in business, I'm sure my Dad got his PC upgraded there recently?

I'm slowly but surely collecting the reprints of the Transformers comics...I had loads of these when I was a kid but they've been lost in the mists of time.

Really good to read the stories again, amazing how much of it I remember...

Bioforge! Can't remember a huge amount about it, just that a mate at college had a copy and a bunch of us went round to his place one lunchtime to have a swizz.

Cameos - Retro appearances in modern games

I was playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the PS2 with the wife until the wee small hours last night...in the "Murderworld" level, you have to complete a mini version of a "Pitfall" arcade machine! Apologies if this has been mentioned before and I'm boring you all, but it was fun and a nice little d...
