Think most have been mentioned. Games like Flashback, Traps and Treasures, Fire and Ice or Turrican if you fancy some shooting. One game that hasn't been mentioned yet that invilves a fair bit of shooting is Jim Power in Mutant Planet. Run, jump, shoot, moving and collapsing platforms. Music from Ch...

You've done a Speccy book and a C64 book, what about an Amstrad CPC book? Can't wait to see the comments on this one. Woody, you must have masochistic tendencies. Perhaps you should write it yourself and see if they publish it. I'd consider buying it, to be fair, even though I'm not really a big CP...

That trailer doesn't give too much away but i'm certainly interested. The first 2 films were top notch and the third was ok. Just a case of wait and see.

Lethal injection would be far too kind to scum like this. Some people just aren't fit to bring life into this world.

Anyone remember the beer flavoured sweets shaped like a pint? Didn't smell too good but tasted quite yummy. I ordered some a few months back off ebay. You can find loads of similar stuff there too.

I had a morning and evening paperound during my school years. The worst bit was the sunday morning with all the extra crap that comes with the papers that no-one reads. My poor shoulders.

Agreed, it was a case of too little too late for these companies. A great shame but they will be fondly remembered.

There was a PS1 shooter called something like Tonki or Tomka (or something similar), can't remember the game, but remember playing it loads. You only had 1 gun per se but it fired different bullets. Looked really cool. Anybody remember what game I'm talking about? Lifeforce Tenka I think. Good game.

Yeah I have never got around to any of the Final Fantasy games. I have only had a quick go on Zelda on the gamecube. Beneath A Steel Sky is another but some of these games you need days to get into them.

A big fan of Ren and Stimpy, loved on bbc2 all those years ago. I have the first two seasons on dvd and as someone else said, its not as funny as it used to be. Sick humour is alot more common these days i suppose. I think Cow and Chicken was a sort of follow up to it later on although not as good.

As people have said, we all share a fondness for retrogaming whatever the games machine may be. Um, thats about it really.
