Yep, me and my Brother used to get annoyed with games and had to punch the bed, or pillows at certain times. Once, he punched me. In the face. For bumping into his car in Jaguar XJ220. I've mentioned the story a few times before in different forums, but to recap, the punch was followed by a chase; a...

I've been to two events in London (about 255 miles away from where I live). The Game On exhibition at the Barbican, and the BIT Live at Gossips nightclub.

For the C64, Mastertronic were always a favourite because of the cost. Epyx's "Games" series were the best sports games, and Andrew Braybrook's were extremely playable. On the Amiga, I think Team 17 did a fantastic job of pushing the hardware furthur than most other developers, while maintaining the...

I remember Breach II on the Amiga was probably the longest single disk loader I had. It took minutes, and it had crap music when the loading picture came on, but the game was so good that I didn't care.

25th Anniversary was ace. One of the best adventure on the Amiga IMO.
Agreed. I didn't play very many point and click games, but that was one of the best I did play. Being a fan of the shows helped.

it still took over ten minutes on DISC
I thought it was okay from disk. Maybe I was so amazed at it taking under an hour that I didn't notice, or it was a cracked turbo version, or I played it under emulation and speeded it up.

The worst one I can remember was the tape version of "Racing Destruction Set" on the C64. I don't know how long it was, but if it was an hour, I wouldn't be surprised! It was a multi load game that let you choose the track and cars to race on. The problem was that it had to load each option you sele...

The Day After had an amazing 5 or 10 scary minutes when the bomb goes off. The rest was a bit of a let down though. I've wanted to see Threads since I first heard of it, but I don't think it's been repeated. I think that's the one my Brother saw at school and at one point there is a radio sports rep...

By that logic you must also have liked the death sequence on Commando
Indeed I do :)


The "Transmission Terminated" bit on Paradroid is quite nice as well.

For a second, I thought about using the 883 droid (or even the 999), but you don't get the "eyes" effect with those. Plus, the I.D. is the base unit that you control. yep me too, also looks like the "old timer" droid from black hole B.O.B. :) That is one of the most under-rated films ever. V.I.N.Cen...

Monty on the Run (C64), because the High Score Table music was so good.

It was a toss up between the Manta from Uridium, or the Influence Device from Paradroid. I thought the I.D. would be better, since it is a "head".

There's a pic of the Summer Games menu on my PAL DTV and 1084S monitor here if anyone wants to see - the white and cyan are almost the same luminance which isn't the case on a real C64 so whilst that's visible on the real deal it's difficult to read on a DTV. :shock: I forgot about that. I remember...
