Re: Great 1000 Mile Rally

Really cracking arcade racer :D I played this for the first time back when Blackpool's proper arcades were still surviving. I think it's one of the most played on my mame cab. The sequel is good too. I don't care for the OTT "Evolution" model which adds wheelies etc. but it's good for a laugh. It wa...

Re: asda direct

Aye. Having checked when I tweeted about receiving it, it seems it took a bit longer than I remember to arrive. It took just over a week. https://twitter.com/#!/Edwards80/media/slideshow?url=http%3A%2F%2Ftwitpic.com%2F7peahs You would think that their system can stop accepting orders if stock runs o...

Re: asda direct

That's disappointing.

I ordered using the same deal and mine arrived a few days later for £5 including delivery. Might be worth giving them a ring and asking about it - the game has disappeared from their page now though so they probably just ran out of stock.

Re: WTF have Microsoft done to the XBOX 360 dashboard??!?!?!

Why are people spending more then a few seconds on the dashboard? I think the navigation through the marketplace has been improved and nothing is hard to find. Not a bad update at all - but one that I will mostly ignore as I will be playing games rather than looking at squares with pictures in them :)

Re: i have a question on secret santa

The "annually" secret santa is definitely not explained fully and comprehensively here http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =6&t=31714

The "Bi-Centenially" forum facepalm happened at about 4:25pm today.

Re: Dark Souls PS3/360

Had my first chance to play this again after the patch was released. Targetting is much improved and I saw no frame rate drops at all. I'm making slow progress (only up to the Darkroot forest) but still loving the game. Need to stop being a big girl and running away each time I run into an enemy I h...

Re: Secret Santa 2011!!

Perhaps just RG in brackets after the name. If you put secret santa then it increases the likelyhood of someone thinking it has something valuable in it and nabbing it - as unlikely as it is!

That John Smith chap is going to be extremely upset about having his details shared on the net :wink:

Re: Forum Secret Santa - SO WHAT DID YOU ALL GET?

I'm definitely up for it again this year. As a result of last years, I was eating liquorice and building Mecano on Christmas day. What's not to like??

Immediate agreement with that . . but then I remembered that most of the times I die, it's against stuff I have been killing a lot of without trouble, so I am my own most annoying enemy :D

Love the game though!
