Re: What's your favourite 3D platformer, and why?

I don't personally regard Tomb Raider or PoP SOT a 3D platformer. Have a look at the first part of this Wiki page on " Platform Game ". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platform_game As I sense a bit of Jug jealousy as " Tomb Raider " was never released for the N64. For me the Tomb Raider was my first ...

Re: Linux for a novice

For me my first choice for you would have to be Ubuntu 9.10 " Karmic Koala " . Got to be the easiest ever to both install and use. Installed it on an old laptop for a couple of OAP's who have never used a computer before. They took to it like a duck to water, as everything with it just work's. When ...

Re: Original Donkey Kong

Just managed to get a PDF download of the book that Steve Wiebe never leaves the house without. So will keep you posted. Retrojc, have you got a Cab or are you playing on MAME. If MAME what kind of pad / joystick are you using. Been using a Xbox360 pad of late not to bad but not perfect. Got a XArca...

Re: Mega-CD Sega-CD System Review

Great Review bud. Makes me want a MegaCD1 more after watching this. Gonna have to do a bit of digging regarding the fuse on it though, as never heard of that one before. Just wonder if it is the same type of fusible resistor as they used on the Dreamcast joy pad board. 10/10 for the review. 0/10 for...

Re: The King of the Quids Competition Thread

Sorry. But couldn't see anything about E-bay or postage in the rule's at the start of this topic. That is why I posted. Will keep that in mind though. :(

Still for only a 1p bid. It was a good find, don't you think. :D

Re: How well do you look after your consoles\games

Always hate it if you loan someone something and they never treat it with the respect that you do. Even more so now that thing's come on a disc and can very easily get scratches in them. If I have any of my Boxed Sega stuff out, even for a short while. It will always get a buff up before it goes bac...

Re: Megadrive Collectors Thread

The SEGA MegaDrive. The penultimate 16bit Console. Been collecting Mega Drive stuff, for nearly 10 years now. Not on any regular basis. Just picking up when I can afford it. As I've been more into the hardware than the games with my collection, that's not to say I've no games. Got to be boxed with a...

Re: Possible Obscura Machina: Pioneer LaserActive

OK, might get slagged of once again. But I do like an unknown Machine review. Especially if it has a picture of a Consloe Motherboard in it..
