  1. I'm hoping L9 article's not a one pager. Loved L9 adventures on my C64
  2. I love a bit of PS3 'Sega Rally' - Has the courses from the 'Sega Rally 3' arcade cab that I played ALOT
  3. Cheers, I'll hang on a bit and keep my eye out
  4. Had to buy a copy of eBay as my sub had run out. Looks a good one - Interested in next month's Top Lightgun Games feature too. Any tips on a good subscription deal - no ftreebies, just cheap? All the ones I've seen are like £50+ - I've never paid much over £40 I don't think Links/Pointers appreciated - PS. Want a physical copy rather than digital Thanks, Andy
  5. Yeah do tell. I'll take a look though. As feel PS2 woefully under represented
  6. Mine arrived late, well after Xmas. Not dug in yet, I seem to have got behind.....again 🤔
  7. Great thread this - I need to look into setting up an Emu to play some old faves This is a good story on a techy hack - Seems they knew the seed of the RNG in particular Aussie machines: https://yesnocasino.com/casino-cheats/slot-machines-cracked-russian-hackers-no-fix/
  8. +1 for the standard covers - Though occasionally the sub ones shine. Wish they'd let some digital artists loose to do some sub covers as it invariably hand drawn/painted stuff that gets a bit samey IMHO
  9. Apologies, bad form - I should know better Letting my Ridge Racer excitement get the better of me
  10. Hi there - I'm now sweet (albeit with US version) I found this 'For Dummies' guide to Duck Station that worked PERFECTLY for me...LOL https://fantasyanime.com/emuhelp/duckstation Plays OK - Even on my shitty ANCIENT Thinkpad - I'm both surprised and pleased
  11. Up for giving this a blast. Can anyone recommend (PM if neccessary) a good safe site/source of ROMs (especially interested in Ridge Racer Revolution (Europe). Many TIA
  12. Anyone else?
  13. tbh - though I could certainly do no better - I feel the KOF illustration on the subs' cover is a bit....well sub par. This seems to be the case with quite a few of them - the PoP one also springs to mind
  14. I've just started 'Missile Commander' at the weekend - Great read - Interesting illustrations/photos too 👍
  15. Hi All I've just finished 'Jacked' by David Kushner on GTA (upto GTA IV) Was an OK read - could have been better but I enjoyed it. Anyone read his 'Masters of Doom'? Any good? I have got Tony Temple's 'Missile Commander' to go next. But wondered if anyone could throw some recommendations my way for some summer Retro Game/Tech Themed garden reading with a beer 🍺 Many TIA
  16. You were close as it happens - as I found it 'Tomb Of Dracula' (see the print add I remember below) And according to the below it was by published by J K Greye Software and written by Malcolm Evans too ! (Not sure if that's correct..) https://www.retrogamer.net/retro_games80/tomb-of-dracula/ Now to dig out a .p file.... Or maybe not....as others not so kind - and appears that the J K Greye / Malcolm Evans stuff is nonsense LOL That person on the RG site also mentioned 1980 release for it when it appears to be more like 1983 - late in ZX81 terms
  17. Nope - The vampire was in the print add - and defo ZX81......though after alot of digging through Your Computer I'm thinking was it Transylvanian Tower? (99% sure it was not though. Annoying me even more now ..... GRRRRR
  18. Nah, defo not that - I very much doubt anywhere as good LOL - I'll pull up some Your Computer mags on Archive.org and have a hunt
  19. Platform: ZX81 Genre: Arcade Adventure Graphical style: Jaggedy attempt at 3D rooms with doors Not a game I played, but remember B&W ads for it it Your Computer, etc and fancy trying. Released in early eighties, the mag ads showed a jaggedy vampire's face - IIRC you explored a castle illustrated by '3D' rooms with doors in N, S, E or W doors. Sorry so vague....
  20. It's a good one They can be a bit hit & miss tbf
  21. Got my refund....well been promised it. Also an admission that I was send 220 as first sub issue when it should I been 219....Small victories LOL
  22. Thanks Darren - I managed to grab one on eBay - £7.00 though I wil be arguing for a refund off MagazinesLost&Damaged to offset that - Grrrr Can understand the frustration on the staff's side and with us readers - Just can't understand how they f*** up so much Just looked on their FB page and the complaints....especially re. DDs taken in error are concerning. Glad I pay in one off chunks...
  23. I've also had a bit of drama with Magazines Direct. I placed Order for Subscription 28/03 - and thinking, I though sensibly, that they might send me 218 (the current issue) I emailed to ask for my New Subscription to start at 219 rather than 218 (As I already had 218). Then I got an email saying my Start Issue would in fact be 220 - Even though 219 wasn't due out in the shops until 15/04?! So, I again emailed to ask for my New Subscription to start at 219 rather than 220. I got a response 06/04 that not possible as: "...due to printing dates we are unable to back date subscription." (even though 219 had not even been printed I'd not have thought...) I was a bit behind on my reading , so I caught up on all my other issues and then needed 219 So - and totally my fault for waiting - on 24/04 I took a trip to my nearest Tesco, Sainsburys then WH Smiths on 24/04 - But no issue 219 to be found anywhere. Getting straight on Magazines Direct's website, I ordered a copy (minus the Nintendo freebie-that I was none to fussed about if I'm honest) for £4.99 the same day 24/04. Confirmation advised delivery by 28/04 - which came and went...so I chased Magazines Direct, and was advised to wait 10 Days - which I duly did. Nothing. So I chased again and marked as an 'Official Complaint' only to be told: "We are sorry to hear that you did not receive the #219 edition. We have checked your records and can confirm this was despatched to you, and can only assume it was lost within the postal system...Unfortunately, this issue is now out of print, and we are unable to send a replacement copy. We have therefore extended your subscription by 1 issue and will now expire with the #233 issue." I've pointed out I'll need to buy a 219 so I'd prefer a refund - Also, as others on here have mentioned I might not want a subscription throught them if more copies go missing :( We'll see what they say. Currently watching a few 219s on eBay.... :(
  24. Hi All Not a mag - But wondered if anyone knows of an online PDF of a GTA III Strategy Guide? Many thanks, HOW
