Re: Event: South Coast Slam 3 (Worthing, Sussex, April)

Good job I checked the website just now, I thought it was tomorrow! :oops: :lol: Will definitely be popping over again for a few hours on one or both days - had a brilliant time last year and was great meeting bensonrad, boggyb, filecore and all the crew :) Looks to be even better this year, looking...

Re: The Hardest thing possible for a Retro Gamer to do.

Must admit to having had a fierce anti-Nintendo bias back in the day (my schoolmates and I all being Megadrive owners). Now that we're no longer in the school playground though, and the days of arguing with classmates over whose consoles/computers are better than whose are long gone, I really don't ...

Quite a bit of Galaxian at the mo, as I've just discovered MAME for Android phones. :)

Re: The Compulsion to Buy and not knowing when to stop

eBay joblots for Saturn and PS1 games were my weakness for a while - have ended up with a reasonably nice collection but the fact is there's a huge amount I'll probably never play. The original idea was to put all the unwanted bits and bobs back up as my own joblots, but I can't be bothered now :lol...

Re: Official Feedback Issue 100 + Issue 1

Picked mine up in Smiths the other day - certainly wasn't expecting issue 1 to be bundled in with it - was over the moon with that! Bloody fantastic :mrgreen: I didn't start buying the mag until a couple of years back so it's great to see just how far the mag has come in these 100 issues. Really nic...

Re: 2012 gigs

Been to see Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake this year, and off to see Joe Bonamassa (surperb blues guitarist) this Friday in Brighton which I'll be looking forward to. Also saw Simon Townshend (Pete's brother) a few weeks back in Shoreham and Roger Daltrey came and joined him for a few numbers - we got ri...

Re: Your preferred holiday destination

It'd definitely be Memphis, Tennessee for me. Visit all the blues clubs in Beale St, Graceland, the Gibson guitar factory etc - of course, I'll be needing to get myself a passport first :oops:

Re: The best concert you've ever been to?

Tough choice for me - been lucky enough to see so many top-notch bands over the last ten years or so, but I think the one that sticks out in my mind most of all is seeing the Doobie Brothers at Hammersmith in 2004. They were utterly superb - blew me away.

Re: Old Board Games and pastimes stuff

One strange one I remember playing mostly with my brother when he used to babysit me, had a tower in the middle of the board and some strange green goo would ooze down from the top while you made your way around the board. I think it featured monsters, but I can't quite remember. Would love to know...
