Re: Paul Drury Interview's Iain Lee about " Thumb Candy "

My angle on it was more, his own personal insite's into, not only meeting say Shigeru Miyamoto, but playing them at there own game's. Come on there must be some interesting anecdotes, in there somewhere. As how many people who read the Mag can say that they have meet and played a game against all th...

Paul Drury Interview's Iain Lee about " Thumb Candy "

A blow by Blow commentary of an interview of Iain Lee about his making of the seminal show " Thumb Candy ".

Re: Saturn help

A quick Goggle search indicates, that as usual Sega used the cheapest of component's on the Saturn, as they did on other consoles. Best suggestion I could make is, that if the Jap Saturn y...

I take it that there is nothing on the other side of the PCB either. OK looking a the picture there is a rather obvious capacitor near th...

Re: Quackshot Article? (Reposted in the right place)

Although, I still think that Castle of Illusion on the Mega Drive is the Disney game on the System. Quackshot for me still gets a place in my top 10 Mega Drive Games. I would love a full spread of this game. As long as they have a tip's section as it is not a very forgiving game to play.
