Re: Dads army 2016 trailer

I can't decide if that looks terrible or amazing. Either way i'm glad it wasnt one of those long trailers where i'm left feeling like i've pretty much seen the whole film.

Re: So are the 360 and PS3 now Retro

I would say no. Retro for me when there is a point at which the games/ systems in question are limited by the technology from the time and the newer systems are clearly making a step change in progress. On that basis (and just my own opinion) PS1 qualifys as Retro and the PS2 is knocking on the door...

Re: Let's talk about booze.

Whiskey. And more preferably the scarcer varieties. Not terribly interested in the majority on a supermarket shelf. Got 12 bottles on the go at the moment; and I would add that these have been purchased during the last 4 years, so am really taking my time to enjoy them. SCOTLAND Ardbeg 10yr The Gle...

Re: The Manchester sinkhole

Well I just hope it's fixed before schools and colleges open and the East Lancs becomes unusable again, if not I think I might be working from home a lot. Have you seen the mess they are making of the park and ride? Insane on there My brain cannot actually comprehend what they are trying to achieve...

Re: Best Ever System Bundle?

I always thought the Sega 'Super System' was quite a cool set. It was a Master System packaged with a Light Phaser and 3D Glasses, it also had Missile Defence 3D built in (although not the best game ever, it did make use of both the bundled peripherals).

Re: Does anyone replay games?

Retro games yes, modern games usually no.. However I bought the PS4 versions of both Tomb Raider and GTAV and completed them both again despite already having done so on the PS3. I really enjoyed them (again) and I'm tempted to get the Last of Us again and also the Uncharted games on the PS4. I play...

Re: Do you still subscribe/buy the mag ?

I subscribe, just missing issue 1 I think. I don't always read each one cover to cover but I really like finding it in the post each month and having the initial flick through :)

I'm still impressed with the quality, some really good content each month.

Re: PS4 Owners/Collectors thread.

Had a PS4 since day one but I only have Watchdogs, Tomb Raider and Destiny. Completed the first two and most of the side bumf and been playing Destiny since it came out. Despite mixed reviews, which to some degree I agree with, i'm still really enjoying playing the actual game and building up my guy...

Re: How many of your consoles and computers broke?

Other than PC's (lost count) the only games system I've had brake is my Atari Lynx II. My mum took it back to Toys R Us but they had none left and were not getting any more so I had to have the one off the display stand. It has scratches above and below the screen from where it was held in the displ...

Re: Top 25 Master System Games

No mention of Zillion yet :? I love Zillion, it's easily in my top 3 games. Its much more than just a platform/run and gun game, you have to use your brain a fair bit. Back in the day I remember playing all the way though to the end part not realising you then need to exit the base quickly and didnt...
