Who Dares Wins
Really like Who Dares Wins. Its great on the C64 and on the Speccy theres lots of colour clash and that but i really liked it back in the day. Huge fan of Commando/Ikari Warriors and i know this is a single screen game but some of the screens are great, very tricky and takes a fair bit of practice. Played this loads, great memories

Hyperbrawl on PS4. Kinda like a speedball/rocket league mash-up.

Revisited LA Noire on the PS4 updated version. Looks a bit dated now but atmosphere still great

Don't own one and can't really do any active stuff because of the back injury and dead leg, best I could maybe work is a flight stick, still need my left hand to work an RPG which is a problem and got no point and clicks running atm

Had a good go of my retro bartop today at lunch...

Green Beret (MAME) - Must be getting old, used to clear that first stage quite easily but failed badly !
Cobra (Speccy) - Again used to always beat this game, got to level 3 which wasnt bad but a bit rusty, love that uzi !
Space Harrier (MAME) - Welcome to the fantasy zone ! Lots of rose tinted memories there
Mercs (MAME) - Again great for a nostalgia boost

Need to play this bartop much more !

Tried to play some ZX Spectrum horror games on Twitch, cant remember most, Nightmare on Halloween was a stand out good game

Is it me or are most of them total rubbish?

Sold Crash Team Racing on PS1 for about £20 and picked up the digital version for £3.99. Finished the adventure mode 100% (something I clearly didn't do back in the day because I unlocked Fake Crash and was like "WTF is this?" lol) and am now attempting to unlock N.Tropy the honest way by beating the time trials.

I will say this: CTR was a wholesale rip-off of Mario Kart but there is some serious satisfaction and skill to be had by doing the Time Attacks and trying to master the art of boosting continuously around an entire circuit.

Need to get around to the remake on PS4.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Yeah, all the good horror games for the Spectrum that I can think of are text adventures, so probably not great for Twitch.

I did get someone watching the stream and chatting back.
I played one where I was a frog, when I typed "F**k" it said "Points deducted for being rude"

Im going to go back to playing the Spectrum, I really need to find out what the best stuff is and if it has some "HIDDEN JEMS(tm)", I hate list sites
