    The Commodore 64 Appreciation Thread

    I actually think my first game might have been Elite. We had a C16, but a mate of my brother brought his breadbin C64 round to ours one day. I'm sure Elite was one of the first things he put on. It's the thing I remember him putting on, certainly.

    Tombstone - The Western Film Genre

    True Grit, people! True Grit! Either of them.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    I've not read it, but my wife described bit as "the most vanilla bdsm she's ever read" My sister in law, who is an English teacher, said she just wanted to take a red pen to the whole book. And yet the author is now unbelievably rich. People are idiots.

    Microsoft Rewards

    I'm actually quite impressed how much credit you can get doing this, even without any multiple accounts jiggery pokery. I started doing it daily at the start of the year (I've only forgotten twice since then) and I've managed to get £30 of credit in less than 3 months. I know the sale has helped that, but I reckon you can still maintain nearly a tenner a month for very little effort (I tend to do it while sat on the bog in work). I was doing it just to bring the price of MK11 down a bit (I should get £35 off by the time I preorder), but I'm going to keep building points for when the next thing comes that I have to get at launch. Which isn't very often, so I'm aiming for getting my next game "free".

    Does anyone else not give a monkeys about that Sekiro game?

    No idea what it is. Only know what From do by reading this thread. Fairly sure I've never played any of their games. Don't feel like I've missed anything.

    Love Death and Robots

    I've seen two episodes so far: Sonnie's Edge and Three Robots. Sonnie's Edge was just shit, to be honest. A story that's been told a million times before, terrible dialogue, rubbish action sequence, pointless nudity, hackneyed characters and a "well, duh!" twist... Nothing to redeem it, really. I quite liked Three Robots, though. Slightly heavy handed at times, but worth a watch. Going to give a couple more a go, I think.

    The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix

    Really enjoyed this right up until the last episode, which I felt rushed things along too quickly, the ended with what felt like a bit of a cop-out. Saying that: Interested to see where series 2 goes.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    There's an amazing scene in Razor Blade Smile where the pvc-clad, big-titted goth chick vampire is sneaking up on someone playing tennis (supposed to be at night, but clearly in the middle of the day with a dark filter. Who the fuck plays tennis in the middle of the night anyway?) by creeping along a chain link fence, like no one can see through the CHAIN LINK fence. Yeah. Bad film. Bad, bad film.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    I'm fairly certain that this is the only film I've paid to see (rented it on VHS) and didn't watch all the way through. It was just awful, awful, awful. Devoid of any humour. Pointless attempts at being shocking. Bad, bad film. Michael Jackson's Moonwalker sticks in my mind as being particularly bad as well. I think probably because it was the first time I was aware that a film I was watching was really bad. I also have a couple of controversial opinions on what are popular films that aren't bad films per se, but my opinion of them is so far removed from the prevailing opinion that they warrant a mention. I thought Eyes Wide Shut and Lost In Translation were both awful films. But I've seen plenty of films much worse.

    The Commodore 64 Appreciation Thread

    I think selling my C64(c) setup is my greatest retro regret. I had a 1541-II, an Action Replay cartridge and more games than I care to think about. Sold for £40 in 1994. I keep thinking I should either get one off eBay, or maybe get on of the minis. Aren't they going to bring out a full sized "mini"? Would love one with a proper keyboard.
  11. Weirdly, I can remember the cheat for the C64 version (you change the keyboard controls for up, down, left and right to spell "orgy") but can remember exactly nothing about the game itself.
  12. I'm in the credits of Formula One...

    Stunt Car Racer

    D'oh. A penny has just dropped for me. No wonder I loved the Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels expansion so much. It's basically just current gen Stunt Car Racer, isn't it? I think Stunt Car Racer is probably my favorite C64 game. Played it to death. Was completely rubbish at it, like, but loved playing it.

    There's no "basically" about that, it's an advert.

    Treble's Retro Gaming PC challenge!

    Yeah, my PC us getting a new lease of life because of this thread. I've spent less than my £20 budget on a 2gb graphics card (£8.50) and a 2.66ghz CPU (£7.38) to bring it up to a nearly decent spec. Hopefully, it should emulate up to PS1 pretty well and will allow me to catch up on some games I've missed along the way
