  1. I was quite lucky. I knew a guy called Andrew who had an Atari 2600 and a load of games (at least ten) while my best mate Paul had a system with things like Frostbyte, Sky Skipper and Empire Strikes Back (among others). I knew a couple of other people (kids of relatives) who had them as well. I was clearly blessed (if that's a word you want to use).
  2. It’s been interesting gauging the response in this thread. Surprised by the lack of love for Atari but the comments certainly put that disinterest in perspective. Next month’s cover is aimed at a somewhat younger audience so it will be interesting to see how it’s received.
  3. I committed the cardinal sin of buying it on itunes for £12.99!
  4. Sadly not. We didn’t get it early enough for Thursday’s issue. Is in the following.
  5. Shameless plug Thursday’s issue of Retro Gamer (240)has a Making of this compilation An Atari-themed calendar 50 Years Of Atari feature Shameless plug finishes
  6. I do like the idea of that but my compulsive nature means I'd end up buying all his books in a week I like the thrill of the charity shop hunt so far. Will try Boscombe this weekend.
  7. Yeah, no one ever talks about them
  8. I’ve decided to collect every Stephen King release and maybe even read them. Going to hit the charity shops today in the hope of finding The Stand, my favourite book.
  9. Just got this from smyths for £42. Super excited to be playing one of the best games of all time again. Everything i’ve Read about this so far suggests it’s not the base ps4 game with 4K visuals slapped on top, so really looking forward to it.
  10. Ah, I thought you meant the PAL version. I had someone as if I would sell mine for £40 (it was priced at £60). I said they could have it for £30 if they could find it anywhere cheaper. They came back an hour later and paid the full asking price (I was about £30 cheaper than everyone else)
  11. £90 is a great price for Mario. i sold a bunch of items there just before COVID and did very well. Planning to sell there again next year.
  12. Dead Silence. My daughter has terrible taste in movies. 2/5
  13. This was the very first game I bought. I thought it was going to be an amazing cartoon-like experience where you cast spells and did really cool, wizard-like things. I was wrong.
