  1. Too long. I am particularly proud of Tapeworm Jim though

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Fingers crossed for Soul Edge/Blade on this. The fact that Namco have allowed Tekken 3 and R4 makes it a bit more likely. Same applies to Klonoa, a great platformer. Edit - Balls to Driver though, that game can fuck right off. I'll be stuck on the first level all over again
  3. Looks like it is for now. I really hope they don't get away with it, but I can't see the fraud squad sending their top team in to sort this out. Will IGG do anything about it? I doubt they'd want the additional publicity and will try to bury it.
  4. This is great, spent my evening playing Catselvania, Super Mario All Paws, Meowtroid, Fatal Furry, Pusst-A-Move, Sim Kitty and Tapeworm Jim

    Recommend me non fiction

    For some reason I stopped reading books a few years ago and am now finally getting back into the habit. I'm currently reading "What we Cannot Know" by Marcus du Sautoy. It's OK, if a bit dry in places. Got some sci-fi next to catch up with and I'd then like to get back in to some popular science as it was always a favourite genre of mine. I've probably missed out on loads of classics but I'd rather jump in with something relatively up to date, anyone got anything to recommend?

    Sci Fi recommendations

    I'm a fan of Greg Egan's work but for some reason haven't read much new sci-fi for a few years, I'll be buying this. Have you read any of Greg Egan's short stories? Axiomatic is a decent collection, mainly as it includes one of my favourites, The Caress: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axiomatic_(story_collection) I used to read loads of short story anthologies, the annual one compiled by Garden Dozois was always the best of the bunch. I need to get up to date on those too. I've just got the new collection by James Patrick Kelly (again, a favourite author of mine from the Gadner Dozois compilations). https://www.amazon.co.uk/Promise-Space-Other-Stories/dp/1607014955 Haven't started it yet, but it's next on the pile of shame.

    Your "Eureka" moments.

    After years of not bothering to emulate takeaways, we finally realised we could make great tasting food that was on a par or in some instances, better. This chow mein recipe for example is pretty bloody good: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/24266/authentic-takeaway-style-chow-mein.aspx I would recommend you halve the amount of sauce though or else it gets a bit too wet. The frying pan pizza recipe from pizza pilgrims was a real game changer, fantastic base without a pizza oven. I love pizza so this is probably my favourite. https://www.pizzapilgrims.co.uk/2017/06/frying-pan-pizza/ And finally, something simple like fried chicken strips is so much better when you make them yourself. Bag of panko breadcrumbs, throw some seasoning in, flour, egg, breadcrumbs and then fry them. Seriously simple but so much better than most chicken shops or supermarket efforts. Just need to perfect egg fried rice next, any tips?

    The House Music Thread

    Should have sacked off Charnock Richard and started a few hours earlier at the Sett End. Then drive round for an hour in circles and end up at the Tizer warehouse about 5 minutes away.

    The House Music Thread

    No cassettes these days but I've still got this on vinyl, takes me right back. +1 for the Blackburn warehouse reference too
  10. Maybe the phantom cock chopper turned up!
  11. Was there any news from the court case? I haven't seen anything mentioned anywhere online

    Jacqueline Pearce has passed away

    With the current trend for remakes, I can't believe that Blake's 7 hasn't been revisited as a brand new reboot. Does the original ever get repeated on TV? I've never seen it on terrestrial
  13. Imagine paying someone to tell you that someone else called you a wanker on Facebook. Madness.
  14. Schrodinger's Game - It doesn't exist (or not) till you test it. I think I've got a blank cassette somewhere, sorry I mean a @@@@LOOOOK RAAAAARE@@@@ copy of the long lost follow up to Jet Set Willy which is supposedly all in 3D with 24 bit colour and stereo sound. It's never been seen or even mentioned but I could possibly have a copy of it. It might work, it might not, it's at your risk. It could just be a C90 I found in a drawer with a crudely drawn todger on it. Starting bids at 10k please.
  15. As I'm sure most other people on Rllmuk have done, I've worked pretty much all my adult life. Some jobs I've had have been easier than others, some harder than others. At no point has anyone offered to pay me to search for their name on Google and send them screenshots of any insulting remarks I find. I must be missing a trick as it seems to be the way to make money these days. It wouldn't seem so bizarre if these were proper investigators, digging deep and looking for crucial pieces of information that protects people who've been wronged. Let's face it, if you want to find sites slating Levy, you don't have to be a fully qualified cyber detective. I bet the backers are well chuffed to know that there's a number of people have taken their money and spent 5 minutes on Google and Facebook searching for a couple of names and keywords. None of this makes any fucking sense
