I picked up "Let's Make a Soccer Team" for a quid. :D Would not want to go near the PS2 version of Sensi if you PAID me a quid though! And yet you bought "Let's Make a Soccer Team" which is without doubt one of the worst footie games I've EVER played! ;) Wish there was a Zavvi store anywhere near m...

No question - Return of the Living Dead.

Every single line in that film is a classic.

I haven't been to one of these events, but I have to say that the Lass is one of my favourate pubs, just back from watching the Northern Ireland V Scotland game there.

Retro Game nights, Staropramen & Northern Ireland on the big screen. If they installed Hammocks in the corner I would LIVE there!

I seem to remember a game on the Spectrum where you just picked a handfull of teams & watched as the results of FA cup games came in & hoped that your teams were still in it at the later rounds?

Am I right or have I been drinking too much Staropramen tonight?

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the OutRun 2006 recommendation. I didn't bother with it when it came out because I'm not a huge racing fan, but I do have great memories of playing OutRun as a kid. Anyway I just got the PS2 version off Ebay for £2.41 & It arrived this morning & I have t...

Definitely agree with the comments re FIFA, Championship Manager* & any other franchise that gets an annual update. Pointless going back unless they really overhaul the game & make it unrecognisable from the previous incarnation. I reckon anything that was sold on the wow factor with snazzy graphics...

Im hoping CEX treat it like a load of rubbish because im going in tommorow morning to see if its been put out on the shelves. I think the guy behind the counter knew what it was worth though and in general the retro stuff they do get in is priced up over the odds. As for the woman not taking £50? ...
