Almost unbelievably, despite living about 8 miles away from the venue, I couldn't make it - I was on holiday in Devon!! Sounds like it was a great event too. Rather pleasingly, I had a great holiday, but I was more than a little disappointed to have missed the event and had to hunt around Barnstaple...

Although as has been pointed out elsewhere, it is included as an Easter Egg in Rogue Squadron III on the Gamecube - something to do with Factor 5 now being an arm of LucasArts I presume ;) I guess I should have asked this question a few minutes ago, as I've just gone and bought a copy of RS III on ...

My favourite has to be Hyper Sports (I was just playing it last night and getting vexed at the weightlifting...as usual)! Track and Field was also a top game, but Hyper Sports certainly floats my boat! Nice to see someone mention Axelay as well - that was a great game. Its been years since I played ...

Thought the Speccy version of Star Wars was very poor, i always played 3d Starstrike instead, much better Star Wars clone. To be honest, I played 3d Starstrike for quite a while as well, (very very good game), as the Spectrum version never arrived until quite late on in the Speccy's life if I remem...

What I am I thinking of then? There is definitely a bit of kit out there that costs a ridiculous amount of cash - I thought that was it! Hmmm...I think I might have been thinking of the wireless adaptor (to hook up the 360 to my router...D'OH! :oops: :oops: :oops: ). Thanks for the tip anyway - I th...

Thats the thing - I've got wireless pads and would therefore need a wireless adapter to try that. I'm too skint (tight) to shell out on one of those for £40-£50, as I don't think I'd really get too much use out of it otherwise. Likewise, I'd not get a lot of use out of a wired controller either, s...

Cheers for the replies folks. I do have MAME and have been playing on there for quite a few years now. Likewise, I have both the Rogue Squadron games on the GC and have unlocked the game as an Easter Egg. However, I'm not 100% happy with the controls when playing it on a GC controller - I just thoug...

Star Wars suggestion

Hi, Long time reader, (having started gaming at around the same time as Space Invaders, I love the mag!), but have only joined the forum very recently. (This is only my 3rd post!) Does anyone know whether there is a place online where you can suggest ideas for XBox Live Arcade retro games? The reaso...

Thats what I suspected...

Oh well, MAME it is until I have enough space and cash for a cab of my own...(which is likely to be some time from now) :(

Maybe 'Star Wars meh', but I have a question that I'm hoping someone on this forum may be able to answer, (and its related to the Star Wars feature - although I have yet to pick up my copy of the mag from WHSmiths). I was wondering whether anyone could tell me if anyone knows of working Star Wars ar...
