Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

Though I still have my 48+ (with loose power point) and numerous original titles, I now only have time to game via emu. Must get myself a USB for my Kempston, though, despite being a King of Keys on a laptop.

Re: unreleased bootled cds/dvds

Got very little. Only Sweet Insanity by Brian Wilson springs to mind. This was his canned album from the early 90's. Clearly still a work-in-progress, though some undeniable corkers on it. He keeps dipping in to this period for the odd track that gets completed and released. Can only hope for more! ...

Re: From The Forum issue 171 - Best In The World

I held a World Record on Twin Galaxies for the last 4 years. I showed it to someone at work last month and It had been beaten. Twice. When I say beaten, I mean smashed. It was an absolute chore trying to set it in the first place. I know I'll never regain it. :( Which title? And 'Well done'. 8)

Re: From The Forum issue 171 - Best In The World

Manic Miner on the Spectrum. High Score. Am quite confident that, once 'in the zone' I can outpoint Simon Bickerdike's efforts, all of which are registered on Twin Galaxies. Here's my last (late at night) effort in the Retroleague: 103,489 Yeah! 4th Circuit. Silly lives lost as it is getting late an...

Yes, folks! It's that time of year again. It's back! Fantasy Premier League Football - http://fantasy.premierleague.com/. Unfortunately, unlike previous years everyone now has to input the following code to join a Private League (had problems trying to Renew for existing Managers and ended up deleti...

Re: Top-50 Arcade games

Aye, given RG has done Top 100s for home systems, a Top 100 arcade should really be a shoe-in. Maybe the team just doesn't read Q&A, so are oblivious to this thread and potential spread for a future issue. Anyhow, my 10 to assist, in no particular order: Outrun Space Harrier Green Beret Scramble Sup...

Re: From THe Forum: Issue 170

Most likely missed the publication deadline with this, but...:

Paradroid [Heavy Metal edition] - one of the very best games in history on any format.

Impossible Mission - superb in every way; though I have yet to complete it. "Stay a while..." - Yes please!

Re: Fantasy Football 2016-2017

I don't care about Football but I've been watching the league on Netflix and now my interest in piqued. Can you only start playing at the beginning of a season and is there a website you go to? The fantasy league opens for business towards the end of July, the first game some weeks later. The initi...

Re: Welcome back lord off topic & the Prinny God

I'm in contact with Nec and Marko (and if they are where I think they are, the others too), so perhaps copy/paste the content of your Banned pm that was sent to them to me and I will pass on the info. At least we'll have a smidgen of redemption for them. Given the level of response to the fallout, I...

Re: Welcome back lord off topic & the Prinny God

Er, right. Off Topic returns and all Hell has broken loose. Staggered that certain Forumites have been banned; and for what? Posting in religious/political threads with their well-balanced and rather innocuous views? How utterly ridiculous. I could understand perhaps a temporary ban if the posts wer...

Re: New forum - issues and complaints

Hope 'Off Topic' does return. Yes, there are other places to chat, but this is a place where you can chat/banter with like-minded people who all seem like pretty decent types. No Off Topic means no birthday greetings, no Secret Santa, no Fantasy Footy... :cry: It really seems to undermine the work ...

John Noakes. Legend. Fab down-to-earth presenter, the likes of which we so rarely encounter. Back with his beloved Shep (a canine legend) - what a double-act they were. RIP.

Tasted good, too! And so it should for the money - take-out from a pub, £4.80 (and if drunk in the pub, £5.95!)
