Re: Formula 1 2013 season thread

Korea was an average sort of race - a safety car always helps. I'm starting to be turned off the sport by the Vettel bashing - I'm not a particular Vettel fan, but to run him down as seems to be constantly happening is frankly embarrassing. I think Hamilton and Alonso are incredible drivers, but the...

Re: How much last gen stuff is too much?

I think this really comes down to the games as much as their generation - something like ICO, Rez or Shadow of Colossus is well worth my reading time. Obviously FIFA12 less so

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

been stung by overhyped modern retro consoles - but this one sounds fantastic. If it's reasonably priced, works as promised and you can actually get hold of one, then i'd give it a go

Re: From the forum issue 122

someone brought theirs to the computer club at the local library once, but I'd be lying if I said I remember what games I got a brief go on. It was probably Prince of Persia (though someone here mentioned Lode Runner and it could have easily been that).

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

took the plunge last week and picked up a Vita as the prices seem to be getting lower and I wanted an OLED screen model. Only played Uncharted so far, but very impressed with the machine. I know it doesn't have a lot of AAA titles, but that's OK as I don't have as much gaming time as I used to. Can ...

Re: Vita Slim

i always loved the original PSP, but the Vita was too expensive. This is probably a step in the right direction, but price & a flow of games will the dealbreaker.

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

going to give Starfox adventures a proper go next.

Has anyone played the 'Symphonia' game on GC? Is it worth paying out for?

Re: The PSP collecting thread

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

Just finished Hearts in Atlantis as well - in the middle of Tommy Knockers now. Stephen King is a magnificent author, possibly underrated as a serious writer? I'm not sure - but I always find a lot of his stuff, especially that without the supernatural flavour, very impressive. Also just finished N...

Re: How much last gen stuff is too much?

like the idea of a few pages each month, but would prefer it to be about the lesser know/rare last gen games, as the major titles are of less interest (until the age a bit more).

Game On in Croydon has a small retro section, but I've had bad experiences with them with a Gamecube rarity one, so maybe best to avoid....

Re: Post your Android games here?

both the above look great will be checking them out.

Have bought Blitz as it's one of my all time favourites. lovely Vic 20 look. A touch crisper on the control & it would be perfect.

Very glad to see retro & indie style games like these on Android - hope they do well

Tokyo Year Zero by David Peace. It's grim but very atmospheric.
