Welcome back. I'm assuming this would be the same Rik that's just reappeared on Retro Passion too then?

Well as it's my 100th post I will intro myself.

My main retro interest is in the C64 - used to have a Vic20, SNES, Gameboy, N64, Dreamcast, Playstation, GBA SE, GP2X but have sold them all over the years.......Kinda regret it now.

Like Morrissey, The Mission, Snoop Dogg, Funky House (!) and Rusty Lee - oh and im 33 but am married to a 25 year old so that helps keep me young :wink:

Lol, don't think it's a retrorik, just someone called Rick who used to be around a bit more. Maybe if I actually read posts sometimes i'll find out. You must've left this forum just as I was joining, so don't remember you. Nice avatar though. :D

Hi

I've just joined the forum although I've been reading Retro Gamer on and off since issue 8.

My first console was the Videomaster Colourscore and my second the Radofin 1292 Programmable Video System which came from Curry's.

My first computer was the Sinclair ZX81 which came from WH Smiths. I briefly flirted with the Spectrum before flirting with girls became too much to resist. I returned to computing again at the end of the 1980s when I bought an Amstrad PC2086 (Intel 8086, VGA and one floppy drive) again from Curry's for about a grand.

I now like to spend my free time writing open source games for Linux and embedded Linux. Currently I use on a regular basis my Gameboy Advance SP with two EZF Advance flash carts, my Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 PDA and my newish Mark II 266MHz GP2X.

Cheers,
Thunor

Hi,

I'm new to the forum, but not the magazine (having read it since issue 2).

I began playing games in 1983 with a ZX spectrum, but soon moved on to an Oric Atmos and then an Atari 800XL.

Yep. still got a trusty Atmos, although it doesn't get much use these days.

Hi all,

Well, gosh, I'm a fanatic gamer up until the PS2 days. I'm also a programmer - never programmed a game, but have worked with pretty much every processor that appeared in a games console (up until 1995 that is).

Anyways, hope this is a nice friendly forum :)

Hi All,

I'm a gaming fan, I've owned for varying amounts of time the following (in roughly this order)

ZX Spectrum 48k
Spectrum +2
Amiga 500
Sega Megadrive
N64
Playstation
Playstation 2
PSP

Sadly due to recent marriage and subsequent space constraints vs shoes and handbags, only the PSP now remains. I'm currently playing the Sega Megadrive collection and Burnout on it, though, so I guess I'm keeping it old school!

I've been reading RG since the relaunch with the Speccy on the cover and it has quickly become my favourite monthly read. I'm liking the forum very much already!

Cheers

Jimbob

You know divorces can be quite easy and inexpensive? ;)

Mrs Ant knew what she was getting before the big day, so the games remain.

Ah, well, little does she know that once I have a bit of space the consoles will return! :lol:

I'm particularly inspired by some of the pictures of people's collections on that thread. Mmmmmm :) [/quote]
