  1. Aha! I knew I had Dragon Girl and Monkey King on my wish list for a reason!
  2. Ahh bravo! This is one of my favourites too. An utterly stupendous piece of art. I seem to remember the artist is unknown? Anyone know? Still pains me to think I sold my copy all those years ago. Bah!
  3. Where were you quoted that price? Going by Royal Mails click and drop service here a 2 kg parcel to the states works out at £12.95?
  4. Ahh, that's interesting thanks. It coincides with how I perceived changes to have happened. They've definitely increased prior to man baby's influence too though. I don't know how they expect the rest of the world to buy goods from them, but hey ho.. U-S-A!
  5. Personally I’m inclined to think it’s a mixture of shipping/customs charges and the relatively small market. Over the last 5 years or so (maybe longer?) US postal charges seem to be insanely expensive. I don’t know what caused the change but they’ve been eye wateringly high.
  6. If this is anything like 3D Land then I'm sure I'm going to enjoy it. I really rate 3D Land.
  7. Loads of new ones coming out it seems. Couldn't find an official video though.
  8. I doubt it will mean that much really. Without the creation of some kind of in-house development studio, what's the point? And let's face it, that's exactly what everyone hoped it would be when they saw the press release. All the old games can still be purchased one way or another. Yes it can be convoluted but the type of player that's going to be interested in these titles is the kind of person who can handle convoluted things. The whole thing just seems like an exercise in boosting public exposure, imo.
  9. Tbh, I still can't think of any other show which so perfectly captures the era of early British computing. It makes concessions to keep things entertaining but never lazily over simplifies or talks down the subject matter. It's a classic, imo.
  10. Loved that trailer and love Doug Liman! Can't believe they got this done so quick.
  11. What I find interesting is that from a casual roam around the net, it's clear that a large segment of the fans who hated the sequels, love this. Especially after this seasons finale. Yet I feel this suffers from the exact same things which made me dislike the recent sequels, terrible writing and lazy, poor directing. In this instance I feel Cobra Kai is giving the Star Wars 'creatives' an utter schooling. I'm 5 episodes in to season 3 and it's just an utter joy. Every single frame, every line of dialogue drips with passion and understanding. Imo, you just know that the people behin
  12. Ahh sorry! Whoops. Oh well, I think he'd be good personally and I agree that visually he'd be a close approximation to how I've always pictured Thrawn, with the acting chops to back it up. And let's face it, how we all picture Thrawn is how he was depicted in Tie Fighter surely? Anyhoo, after seeing the entire season, I thought it was mediocre with only episode 5 being actually very good indeed. Oh well, it passed the time and there were some nice moments sprinkled around. Nice to see so many seemed to enjoy it too and got back into Star Wars. I really hope they inject some
  13. Nope, they should actually cast his brother Lars instead. He's the better actor anyway, but relatively unknown outside Scandinavia unfortunately.
  14. @mash I never knew that, thanks! Frame rates were totally subjective back then, for sure. I was completely happy with Doom in full screen though, I remember it being a marvel. The coprocessor was definitely used in Falcon 3 though as I remember. That game was massive for me at the time. And I think 3d studio required it as standard.
  15. That's interesting. Does it have a co-processor or not tho? Because without one I'd of still thought it would hamper games regardless of their MHz speed? I dunno about Doom either, I thought it looked pretty slow in his video. Whereas playing it on my DX33 it flew. Maybe it's the ol rose tinted effect, but I'm sure I'd have it full screen and it moved smoother than his one.
