Re: Should I buy a PS3?

Firstly. It's awesome to be in a gaming forum discussing current gen consoles and not having to read "OMG PS3 SUX WII HAS 9000 MORE POWERS!!!!" etc. :D If you have the money to spend and it is burning a hole in your pocket then you should go for it. I haven't yet as there is nothing "must have" for ...

Re: Bees and Beavers

Duh. They learnt about it the same way we know what bees and beavers do. Cartoon story books.

Problem solved, next question.

EDIT: Actually, the one that gets me is the wasp that lays its eggs inside a live spider . . . baffling.

Re: Has anyone got the new 360 yet?

Have had mine since launch day and I'm very pleased with it. It's quiet and it doesn't seem to get too hot. Certainly when I compare it to my mates old style 360's. Did have a moment when I bought it though. All was well until I put a CD in and heard an flippin awful rattling noise. . . turns out th...

Re: Bombjack Arcade Cab

£30! Unless it was on fire I'd take the chance.

Just don't speed on the way to collect it. You'll end up in trouble when asked "Why are you in such a hurry" by the policeman and you answer "I'm off to pick up a bomb, jack"

Order placed.

Can't wait to see what V2 looks like. This will look great in my gameroom - hopefully it will be overshadowed by the real thing before long though :D

Re: New URL for my arcade models

They are awesome, but this is the deal breaker for me :

"scale model with all the features of the arcade machine (except game play)"

No gameplay? Disgrace :wink:

Any plans for Robotron 2084 - I think I'd be parting with cash then :D

I'm with Sky 20mb and have had no problems and good speed. I am literally a stones throw from the local exchange though so that helps :lol:

Re: Do you wear pyjamas in public?

Some big fat horrible chav looking bird with here gut hanging over here PJ's which were just covered from top to bottom in stains. At that point i realised some people really don't have any dignity any more. I've seen it twice at the supermarket and this was my experience both times. To be honest t...

Re: R3PLAY - hotel booking update

If you really aren't sure about a place then look it up on trip adviser.

The one I'm staying in had 2 reports of poo being in the toilet on arrival. Not a free extra you take for granted. . . I will add that this was under the old owners and all new reports are positive :D

Re: want to see in RG - feature on Amiga Demoscene

I'd love to see something about this.

Might be teaching granny to suck eggs but I sometimes listen to http://www.scenemusic.net . It's an online radio station that plays demoscene music. You can pick and choose the playlist to, but the queue can be pretty long at times!
