Re: From The Forum issue 175 - Sonic 2: Magic or tragic?

Why is this even a debate? There are 2 types of people in this world, those that love Sonic 2 and those that are wrong!

Re: Retro Mobile Phones

I've got an old phone knocking about you can have for nowt. It's a Sony Xperia Tipo, it has a small colour screen but can do all the basics. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Xperia_tipo I think it might already be unlocked, but if not it was on EE & you can probably get it unlocked for pennies i...

Re: Is this forum going down hill?

Not been on here for ages, poked my head round the door. Have to say almost a full decade after the original post I finally agree with it. Didn't usually agree politically with a lot of the posters on here & got a bit wound up at times but some of the bans range from harsh to insane. Markopoloman, r...

Re: Play Expo Glasgow 2017

I'm heading up to this. It'll be my first one of these I've been to for ages. I'm looking forward to it, but what used to be full of retro, arcades & interesting talks, appears to be largely replaced by modern gaming, competitive e-sport tourneys, retailers flogging stuff and dressing up. Which is a...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Cheers fella, I'd a lot of fun doing it. We'd probably better get back to the rants though, as pulling threads off topic is ironically a gear grinding thing! Social media turning into a 2 month episode of Question Time around Elections. Seriously if the couple of dozen friends and followers haven't ...

:lol: :lol:

Well I got Eloise by Barry Ryan correct & that was released in 1968. :wink:

Also, there was a question about Moses & I'm pretty sure the girl who answered it correctly wasnt 4,000 years old.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

The Conjuring Oh god, I regret watching this again. I am getting freaked out by shadows and noises during the night that I sleep with the lights on. No other movie has ever affected me like this! I've watched countless horror movies over the years and this one freaked me out. Not can't sleep level ...

I'm still not convinced by 3d gaming. It's a fad, it'll pass.

Re: So, tell me about the original Nintendo Wii......

Lots of fun "on rails" shooters like House of the Dead 2/3 & Overkill, Resident Evil Darkside & Umbrella Chronicles.

Also for the Hell of it, Mad Dog McCree.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

The Hotmail thing is a pain in the hoop. Sure you can change the settings, but why make such an obviously crappy setting the default. Even more annoying is when you do a B followed by a ) in Word now it defaults to a fukkin smiley face with sunglasses. Something I have NEVER and WILL NEVER EVER need...

Re: Gaming tattoo

There's a blast from the past, good to see you post again.

Brilliant tattoos those, seen so many dodgy ones but they look fantastic.
