  1. Going to see it tonight, after having missed Snowflake/Tornado due to unexpected commitments. Very excited.
  2. "Get away from me, Duncan!" is now a staple in our house.
  3. Ah cool, Holy Wow are the ones that did Icarus Proudbottom. I was worried they were dead - nice to see them still going.
  4. Went to the one in Soho the other day and had a great time. It's small but they've got a load of original machines.
  5. RipePlums

    Saw him the other day. I think this says it all.
  6. Gosh the Miyoo Mini really is... mini. Question: I initially used my phone charger to charge it, but it got really hot. After some research it seems there's a lot of talk about only using 1A chargers. Is this true or is it just Internet Nerd Rumours?
  7. Won a Miyoo Mini V2 for £70, which I'm happy with. Really looking forward to it, given the impressions here.
  8. FWIW I played this about 20 years ago when the fan translation came out and I seem to remember loving it. Take from that what you will!
  9. I'll add to the data and say I thought NMS was shit at launch, and it's even shitter now
  10. Refunded this. The lag, tearing and general half-arsed nature of it all is just too much. They did this better with the PS1 Namco Museum games, for god's sake.
  11. I don't mind that he hadn't heard of the games, but he then used it as a negative in the review. It's not the products fault he's a yank!
  12. His review of the C64 mini was crap too - despite being a "C64 expert" he'd not heard of most of the games. Plus wasn't there something where he got hold of a (potentially) rare prototype pc, and treated it like shit?
  13. That was shit. It felt like series 7 onwards of Red Dwarf, just totally missing the point of the originals. It felt like the Matrix games, that's how shit it was.
  14. Fake cheese, fake bacon, strangely mushy. I bloody love them. My hands are covered in cheese dust. Delicious cheese dust.
  15. It's because whoever is in charge isn't a designer. They're not saying "What impact will adding this mechanic have on the rest of the world?", they're just adding things they think sound cool or unique. Then these systems are exploited, or interact in unexpected ways, and break the game. Star Citizen is the antithesis of good game design. Adding dumb minutiae rather than focussing on the core loop.
  16. I would. Cash out, retire. No more work, no more worrying about maintenance. Just a big holiday.
  17. It seems strange to buy something that was founded on the basis of a reasonably seamless mass-migration, after something happened on the previous forum.
  18. There's also Near's scans which have just been released. https://www.patreon.com/posts/nears-original-57250631
  19. Back when I was a kid, jackpots in the local club were £75, with it being 5p a spin. I used to hunt for pound coins down the back of the benches, then go into the empty function room to play the machine there. By the time I was an adult it was all 25p a go, with £15 jackpots. Sod that!
