  1. Mega Drive. Yeah!

    "Is it alive?" "it's a bit alive"
  2. What are you playing? Retro edition.

    Ah Bombjack is a regular goto on mame. I had forgotten that solomons key even existed. Mind you while I'm there I may as well play Bombjack while I'm at it!

  7. Your gaming setup

    Yesterday I got a little Sony 14inch PVM - today I've had a good chance to get it setup in the shed. Its great to have a monitor that I can use as a vertical display for shooters !

    14 inch. Still looks small compared to my 21 inch Sony Trinitron Tv . Can't wait to run my supergun through it!

  12. Birthday Gaming Memories

    It must have been my 15th birthday, I'd saved about half the way towards a commodore 1541 disk drive. On the day my mum and dad drove me into town to 'maybe' get a game. When we arrived at the computer shop the owner greeted my mum by name and said "I've got your bananas" mystified at why they were selling bananas at a computer shop (and why in the world am I getting a box of bananas for my birthday?) I was surprised when he handed my mum a box of banana branded blank floppies - well that makes more sense, but we don't have a disk drive, I thought. The owner then produced a shiny new 1541 from under the counter - happy birthday! Wow! I was taken aback ! I was not expecting that! I then selected a couple of games, Renegade and Defender of the Crown Happy times indeed. But sadly they did not last , the drive died a few weeks later and had to take it back - we took a refund. There was a silver lining here, the following year the money refunded from the drive went towards an Amiga 500 instead.
  13. Game Room Evolution ( A blog topic)

    The sheds cost about £3k. £500 on electrics (with underground cable) and £500 in decorating costs. That includes the £200 spent on new oak worktops (as desks) All the internal work I did myself (with a friends help), but had the sheds built by the shed man!

    I was playing through Robo Army yesterday. What a mental game - brilliant fun. I've has some sound issues too. Nothing too off-putting though
