    Is your local cinema terrible?

    Bong Bong Street! Flown out there to do some work for the local council tail end of 2015. Loved it. My local now is either some God forsaken pit in Maidstone, or the bright dazzling lights of Blue Water. Slightly off the beaten track is an independent in Hawkhurst - the Kino. They have adverts for the local Public Schools. They don't sell noisy food and you can take craft beer and a very agreeable red wine in.

    Your old arcade and game shop hangouts

    Leisure Investments! My first real programming job was in an office just opposite. Company was awful, I'd spend my lunch time at the arcade playing Assault. They ran a competition to win a tiny portable black/white TV for the highest score that month. Ker-Ching! Fond memories of finishing SideArms on a single credit with a crowd of onlookers, and the huge Street Fighter machine with punch pads. Can't recall the name of the second arcade, but yeah - loads of machine but felt a bit itchy/tasty in there. My dad got me a Texas Intsruments TI-99/4A from Galaxy Video on the high street (where a tanning salon is now). Also used to rent Atari VCS carts from there for 2 pound a night. In 1982(!) Shout out to the Computer shop up Union Street too. Spent a long summer in the early 90s going in every day and asking if F29-Retaliator was out yet. Damn that Amiga Format hyped pre-release review. Also shout out to a video rental shop up the Tonbridge Road that had Robotron, Mr Do and Moon Patrol in the back room :-)

    Cheers guys, it's 5.62 on the South Africa store, with coins from my dead cells , that's 4.96. Bonus!
  8. I've had this as Early Preview on Steam/PC for about 9 months, and was a bit shocked with the stuttering/framedrops on the Switch compared with the PC. The good news is they're working on a fix

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Yeah, I found him an absolute ballache to fight in the main game - but after he's done - nothing but joy. Until... (Spoiler) So, if I were you, just YouTube the dude, finish the main game and hang your hat after a job well done :-)

    Amiibo by Nintendo

    Bit of a punt this, but here we go... Anyone after short hair/player one Bayonetta Amiibo for a reasonable price, it's currently on Amazon.com. With Amazon Global Delivery to UK, it's *just* under 15 quid, so I'm hoping it avoids duty etc. Amazon Global states it takes care / calculates all import fees at checkout - it came to nothing.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    Cool, anyone up for challenge for deadline, add me (oinkster). Looking at the leader boards -they are so broken at the top it's unreal.

    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    Not sure if posted elsewhere, but the SteamLink is Currently 16 quid at game. http://www.game.co.uk/en/steam-link-816924 I'd been looking at one for a while, and at that price decided the most perfect thing I need at this time of year is more tat I won't use :-)
