We will be back on tonight talking about the coronavirus no doubt, as you do on a retrogaming chat, after Boris Johnson's 6pm address to the nation. He will relax the rules, so we can celebrate that tonight from 9pm on Discord. Follow the link in my signature. And remember the new guidelines:
STAY AT HOME IF THERE'S SOMETHING GOOD ON TV
PROTECT THE NHS IF YOU REALLY WANT TO
SAVE LIVES IF YOU CAN BE BOTHERED

Hi guys! Would have posted an update earlier but I was busy creating my Dominic Cummings fanpage. I just don't understand why people are criticising this great man. So what if he visited relatives 250 miles away while he had symptoms of coronavirus? It was really important, and I'm sure he washed his hands before he got out the car. Yes, it might seem hypocritical to the public who were unable to go to funerals and he does come across as unbelievably arrogant in his responses to the press, but Mr Cummings has a lot of money. And people who are rich are more important than people who are poor. That's why they can break the rules. It's money that matters!!

As a tribute to Sir Dominic, I have decided to use him as inspiration for this weekend's Hot Topic:

What is the biggest mistake ever committed by a programmer in a classic retro game?

I would nominate the controls in 3D Ant Attack. Instead of Up Down Left Right Fire it has an incredibly complicated amount of directional controls affected by what way you are facing. It's still a great game, but much harder to get into as a result. Thankfully, a hack has been made with much simpler controls, so you can play it as it should have been first time around :)

But what would you choose? Please come on at Sunday 9pm and you can let us all know. The link to get on is in my signature. I beg you to make an appearance and show your love for Dom!!!!! :)
