Re: A Retro Games Event for Wales?

I would love to see an Event in Wales. I live up the valleys just outside Cardiff, and always find that all events are outside of Wales and not easy to get to, esp in these times.

Re: Star trek games

Hi, there was also a star trek game on the commodore 64 cartridge called "Star Trek Strategic Ops Sim" by sega 1982. I bought a copy from ebay about 3 years ago and I havent seen too many listed since. I think it was on the Atari 2600 as well at the time. Based on the original series though.

Re: Gaming Sex Scenes are terrible!!

Phantasmagoria was also another game that had a sex scene in (though I think it was 2 scenes) which caused quite a fuss when it was released, that and the fact it was over 7 cds.

Re: Playing with my joystick

While I think that the gamepads, especially the Dual shock analogue sticks and pads from the saturn/megadrive/snes days are good for games, I still have alot of fond memories of using the Competion Pro joysticks to play the platform games and nothing beats playing bubble bobble or a platform game on...

Re: need help with testing a Atari Lynx

Thanks for the useful advice, I got around the power-up problem by using a paper clip to short pins 31 and 33 on the cart slot, but my problem is that I got no game to try the lynx, so I cant say for definate if it works or not. Thanks again.

I really dont mind if a girl is tomboy or girly as long as they are themselves and not something they are not. I think a girl can be just as attractive with a basic amount of make up or none as opposed to all tarted up. I have met girls on my occasional nights out that looking stunning, then see the...

Yeah, I have one too boxed with 2 games. Screen is OK on it, but the breakout cart has signs of wear, but fully working. I picked mine up at a boot sale for £2.50 back last year, didn't know what it was but took a chance and bought it.
