Re: How did you get into gaming?

Had a binatone games console in the 70's, but then didn't think much about gaming. Then I went with my mum around my mums friends house when I was 11 and my mums friends said go and have a look at her boys ZX81. That was it for me he showed me Football Manager, flight simulator & 3D Monster Maze. Al...

Re: Favourite gaming magazines

I see that PCZone is no more. (last issue will be out on 2 September) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-10641398 A shame but understandable desicion. Was the first PC gaming mag I bought back in 1996 and used to love the cover mounted disks. It reminded me very much of the boyish and sometimes r...

Treamcast

Hi, firstly I apologise if I'm breaking any rules here with this post. The post is really a heads up for anyone who is interested in a Treamcast as I will be putting mine on Ebay sometime in the next week hopefully. It's in excellent condition, I bought it off someone, but never got around to using ...

Re: Your First PC?

My first PC was in 1996. I had held on to the belief the Amiga would make a comeback, up until late 1995, when I finally realised it wasn't going to and started looking for a PC. Anyway it cost me £1799 and was from Mesh (who I now wouldn't recommend). Specs: P133 8mb Ram 1.6gb hdd 4*CD rom 2mb ATI ...

Re: Carry on movies

Not my favourite, Carry On Loving, but one of the best scripted jokes in any of the films, goes something like this. Pretty bird to Terry Scott's character "oh that damn cat has got in again, it's the neighbours" Pretty bird puts it out of the door and shout "shue cooking fat". Terry Scott looks at ...

Well I can't say that I agree with you, but you're obviously entitled to your opinion :)
Fair enough. :wink:

Re: Official feedback for Issue 63

It's irrelevent whether the readers of the magazine, have played all the levels or not, the front cover was badly worded and the article IMO did not contain what the cover was hinting at.

Re: Official feedback for Issue 63

As ever a really great read, except the Manic Miner feature, BIG exclusive revealing the secret levels you never played says the front cover, well it's hardly that is it. I was hoping we might see some levels that were never finished by the programmers or were taking out of the final version, due to...

Re: Official feedback for ISSUE 61

I have to say this is my favourite issue for a while. Not you guys fault, but in Issue 60, I wasn't interested in a lot of the subjects being covered and with a lot of articles I started to read, but then just skimmed over, cause I just wasn't interested in the subject being discussed. In complete c...

Having a retro set up is fine if you have the room and money, if not emulation kicks arse. Best emulation is of the Spectrum IMO. I cannot even be bothered with discs anymore. Once I've installed a game, I prefer to be able to play it without having to keep putting the disc in changing it over etc.....

Did the deagonstini Carry On collection about 5 years or more back. It was an easy way to collect them all without shelling out too much in one go or bothering to search the shops for them. You got a little magazine with each one as well, containing bits an bobs (mainly what you get in the trivia/go...

Daytona is simply the best ever racer and it really excels when played with a couple of mates. At least we can experience the Arcade version on our PCs via the M2 emulator which I personally thinks plays Daytona very well. The Dreamcast version was excellent as well and NULLDC seems to be improving ...
