I think he is pretty much over rated. He's not really been as good since the 80's really - i think his last 'classic' was probably Prince Of Darkness. Vampires was passable, but Ghosts Of Mars was a bit pants. I'm a bit disturbed that Big Trouble In Little China is getting more votes than Halloween...

Man attempts to sue Tron-forum member makes fool of himself!

Hi folks!

Thought you might be amused to hear this - someone is actually trying to sue Tron - that's the fictional character not the actor or anything - because his computer keeps crashing.
Serious - it's in the news pages at the web address below.

Speaking as someone so old that i had to serve my early gaming years before Sir Clive brought computers into our living ...

Hi there! I'm in my (cough,cough,ahem) late 30's and have been a gamer for most of those years. Right back to 'classics' of the 70's like Blip and UFO Invaders. The first game i can remember playing was the arcade game Boot Hill which was a mainstay at a holiday park we'd go to every year - they als...

The ZX81 was my first computer, so it was more a case of what would i do if my favourite game DID load!

I seem to remember i used to play Ship Of Doom and Galaxian a lot cos they were the only ones i had that loaded most of the time.

Don't get me started on Greedy Gulch.

Saw 'The Dark Crystal' on a double bill with 'Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom' back in the day when your cinema ticket packed a bit more value for money. Brilliant films, both of em. Not sure how i feel about Dark Crystal 2-hope it doesn't spoil things with too much cgi. Saw loads of films as d...
