Re: Stupidest thing you've done thats damaged a game or mach

The C64 comes with no soft reset switch. So after Commodore User magazine published an article on how to create a crude one by bending a paperclip and touching (if I believe) pin 1 and pin 3 on the user port, it would soft-reset the machine leaving the machine code intact to enter cheat POKE's for g...

Re: what retro game are you currently playing ?

PC - Defender Of The Crown (Heroes Live Forever). Bought it with a special deal online. Definitely not as good as the original, the new archery section is just too unfair. No cut scenes. But I like the gamecards, and the joust indicates when to click and the catapult section is good. Some good featu...

Re: Best emulators

Yape for the Commodore 16 and Commodore Plus/4. No question. The most easy to use, the most functional and the most compatible. I record all my Youtube longplays on it 8)

Re: Covertape classics

All C64 games. Graphic Adventure Creator - Commodore Format. I had to apply for the instruction manual they offered through the magazine. To this day I had never made my own adventure, but it was a lot of fun trying. This is probably the best games creator for the C64. I love text adventures. First ...

Re: first game

I believe the first game i played was 'Flimbos Quest' on the Commodore 64, it came with the system on the cartridge with International Soccer, Fiendish Freddys Big Top O Fun and Klax. But the first stand alone game i bought was i believe creatures for the commodore 64, and to this day its still one...

Re: first game

Can't exactly remember, one mate had a Pong/lightgun game and another had a ZX81 which I've played on at somepoint, whilst someone else had a Vic-20 before I owned a system which I think I played once, and then there's the coin-ops. My first gaming experience could be on anything. I acquired my firs...

Re: Lego Games

How about lego'ing up a few old classic games? 8) Lego Streetfighter and Lego Double Dragon. 1 kick and you or they are down. Would work better with Karate Champ. Lego Paperboy. Those newspapers could demolish houses. Lego Rampage. Enough said. Lego Breakout or Lego Tetris? Mmmm, seems just like the...

Re: Gaming Time Machine

The 90's were really a time of amusement arcades going out of fashion, all there were being released were fighting games and not much else and they startred becoming like £1 per play instead of 10p or 20p. Not much innovation left and too expensive for me. Also the micro-computer scene was slowly on...

Re: John Lennon - Your Thoughts

Yep agreed. This will probably cause a small wobble here, but there's nothing much left to invent in music styles now it's more or less all been done.much of rock music now is just more rehashes of old from the innovators, so less new music will actually stand any real test of time. All there is rea...

Re: What Comics did you read as a kid?

Whilst my brother collected those Marvel superhero and WW2 comicbooks, I was an avid Beano, Dandy, Whizzer & Chips, Nutty reader :lol:

The only comic of his I enjoyed reading though was Spiderman 8)
