Re: games where the original was best

good points paranoid marvin. It was a major jump forwards, the cab, the music, it just got everything *so* right. Now that you mention it, I cant remember the last time I played either Pole Position.. might actually give them a go! :D

Re: games where the original was best

As for the Outrun debate. I struggle to say which is best. The only thing that lets the original down for me is the inconsistency between courses. Some are amazing while others seem a little empty and bland. Having said that, the road routine on the original is astonishing for the time. I can't thi...

Re: From the forum: 185

After begging my dad for a coin, I popped 20c into one of these amazing looking new machines stood outside the supermarket, and time seemed to stand still as I was taken off into this captivating and all-consuming new gaming universe, to which I have merrily found myself addicted to without challeng...

Re: Spectrum Vega Plus Poll

I actually want one now! The 12-odd protos they'll send out to placate the angry hordes will likely become worth a fortune in the near future.

It's not made clear from the link but if you click the 'update' tab you can download the game. It's a Gig but seriously worth it!
thanks for that, I didn't realise there was a game, I'll certainly take a look, cheers. :wink:

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

hmm.. I have to try and remember. A box of 10 3.5" floppies was about $10 for the cheapos and $20 for the better stuff. In pounds I would imagine it'd be about half those figures. Tapes, the cheaper ones were about $1 each and the more expensive ones about $3.50. So roughly thereabouts the same in c...

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

I started with Apple II with 5 1/2" floppies and when the Vic 20 came along and then the C64 where I had tape systems, I felt it was a distinct downgrade. Don't get me wrong - both tapes and floppies were the bane of my existence back then suddenly not working when you most wanted them to, but I def...

Re: Experience of importing a classic arcade machine to the UK.

that's some odyssey! I'd have no hair left if I went through that! :D Boy, I just couldn't settle for one system... no way. That'd drive me nuts, having to choose one, single system. Maybe it'd be a pinball machine.. perhaps Indiana Jones and the Had of Fate. But I dunno. Thanks for sharing anyway!
