Re: Nintendo Discontinuing Wii U from this Friday

I bought a Wii U for my daughters a few years ago at their request, fully expecting it to gather dust next to the TV. To my surprise, we have played it constantly ever since and I have really enjoyed it. The one big disappointment for me was Mario Kart 8, which graphics apart, was not a patch on the...

Re: Keith Vaz

[quote="che_don_john"]I'm surprised no one has yet punned on his 'Manhunt' yet... I'm always of the opinion that what people get up to in their own time is no-one's business. I can't see how such stories like this are in the public interest as he's not actually done anything illegal or (in this case...

Re: Labour Election Results

So much for a different kind of politics, Jeremy has shot himself in the foot with this misguided bit of spin. What an idiot.

Re: Paris under attack

Do you actually know many Muslims Seph? Enough to know the majority are being targeted for abuse and hate crimes? Or have you just read that in The Guardian? I work in Newham, East London, with many, many Muslims and I've not heard ANY once say they have been targeted at all, to me, or anyone. But t...

Re: UK Nes original owners

I never knew a single person who owned a NES. Everyone I knew had Spectrums or C64's, then later moved onto Amiga's or Atari ST's. They made precisely zero impact on me and even now, my interest in them is very limited.

Re: What game would you like to see remade for the VIC-20

How about a version of Mr Do? Can't think of one on the Vic and even the Atari 2600 has got one!

Re: NEW - EU in or out? June 23rd (with POLL)

I've been undecided up to the last week or so but have decided to vote leave. The scare stories put out by both sides are pretty shameful and ridiculous. So many vested interests behind the scare stories, my respect for 99% of politicians these days has never been lower.

Re: DS Lite and M3 Card

Sorry David, been wanting to pick up one for a while, since my daughter killed my one with washing up liquid (don't ask)!

Money has been sent...

Looking forward to messing around with ZXDS again!

I've never backed a kickstarter before but I'm tempted by this.

He'll let me off, I sat through enough Sunday school services as a kid, so I've got a bit of credit with Him if needed!

Re: Paris under attack

@markopoloman. Apologies for the idiot comment, that was too strong. Leaving it at gullible would have been enough. I've no doubt the vast majority of religious believers are decent, family people. I just can't believe that people still believe in it all in this day and age. Still, I apologise for g...
