My MODERNNESS comes, but then goes quite quickly too! But my retroness never goes. Obviously, I don't have time to play everyday, but I do still manage to either have a good session on the Speccy or Megadrive a few days a week, even if its just for an hour or so at a time. Quite often late at knight...

Personally, I thought Streetfighter should have stopped YEARS AGO! I liked the first FEW games, but I think they have been way too many. The early ones were great fun, especialy when you got to play as a boss, wow! But I have felt that Street Fighter has offered nothing new in about 10 or 12 years. ...

Yes I agree with Street Fighter the Movie. However, my eyes were firmly glued to Kylie's Ass. Definately something to sink your teeth in to...:wink: Anyway. Joust is one of my all time favourite games. The idea of it being turned into a movie worries me because it may well be rubbish. However, as I ...

Oh just for reference really. I just like to remind myself what used to be on, and when. I have lots of tapes I recorded from Children\'s ITV from back then, but not everything. As I said, I just have very fond memories of Thames Television from the 80s. I\'d just like to see what was on and when. J...

Where Can I Pick Up/Download Old TV Guides?

Hello I was just wondering if anyone knew where I could pick up or download old TV Guides/Listings from the mid-late 1980s? Radio times, TV Times etc. Reason I ask is, as well as loving games from the 80s, I also love the TV from the 80s, esp. Childrens ITV. I\'d love to get my hands on some, so I c...

I on't see things as 'old', I just see them as good or bad. For instance, one of my passions is 'old' music ie 1920s-40s Delta Blues Mowtown, Stax and the like. I think its just better than most of whats out today. Same with the games. Games I feel were just about enjoying the games back then. Plus ...
