Most people say that the stuff on the disks was all downloadable (<-is that a word..?) but I am lazy and can't be arsed to trawl trough loads of crap to find an emulator that works, Now I have them all on a nice disk with a proper cov...

This is an "argument" we have been having for over 20 years lol... I really couldn't understand how anyone would want a C64 with its "blocky" graphics for ages untill I saw LAST NINJA on a friends machine and played SPACE INVADERS while a game was LOADING.!! I was hooked after that.. As for shoot 'e...

The worst thing is wireless control pads.... If you have a normal control pad and the red mist desends upon you, the lead from the pad to the console can pull tight and snap you back into a sensible frame of mind just before you lob it.., unlike a wavebird (for example) which don't remind you what y...

The Gameboy piece in issue 20 taught me that flash carts are not just for filthy pirates but can be used by gamers to expand their mobile software libary with emulators and homebrew titles.

That movie looks as good as the games... bland settings, fog everywhere to hide the poor backgrounds and a story we have all seen a hundred times... Dont think I'll even waste a blank disc downloading that..! There must be thousands of better games with much better storys to make into a film rather ...

I doubt there would ever be a spectrum one as only a small number of us brit's would buy the thing, and as you all know when it comes to gaming the brits are last to get anything.... As for the stick, build the whole thing into a "konix speedking" with the fantastic micro switched joystick and butto...
