  1. I loved X-Men, X-Men 2, First Class and DoFP, but this is a whole heap of crap! Urgh! The sooner Disney/Marvel get going with this, and the FF, the better in my book.
  2. This has, quite literally, restored my faith in ‘modern’ video games. Fucking Hell! I honestly didn’t think I’d ever see the day again!!
  3. PS I Love You. I was dragged to see this by an ex. To this day, it is the only time I’ve ever walked out of a cinema in my life! Utter, utter garbage. Even the ex thought it was poor (yes, she did stay till the end). Thankfully, my Wife is more of a Marvel girl.
  4. Me and the Mrs binged the whole series.... it’s superb! Rather dark, a little moving, and highly recommended. Thanks for the heads up.
  5. Rumours of Dino Crisis.... oh please, oh please, oh please let this be true!
  6. Dino Crisis (built the suspense superbly... re-master or re-boot it now, Capcom!) Gradius R-Type
  7. Two that spring to mind are: Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead and 2 Days in the Valley
  8. Defender and Stargate and then, later on in the 80s, Salamander and Side Arms.
  9. Wow! That does look good!! I’m another who used to spend hours on Rocket Raid on the BBC B. Scramble was the first arcade game I truly fell in love with, I used to slot 10p coins in to that cab like they were going out of fashion, back in the day.
  10. The American by Simple Minds, from the album(s) Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call. Released in 1981 (fuck.....I’m old!), but the topic is eerily prescient in this age of Trumpenomics: ‘Every time you touch this place it feels like sin’... indeed!
  11. Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus were co-writers of this (as well as the rest of the Chess album/musical, along with Tim Rice), so that explains the ABBA similarities.
  12. The Centipede and Tempest cabinets have just jumped to the top of my want list.
  13. New Wave have the official licences, it states in the description of each cabinet (I would imagine Numbskull are likewise).
  14. Outstanding!! Been waiting and waiting for this. The first series was just mind blowingly bonkers and this (thankfully) looks like it’s continuing in that vein
  15. The Tim Buckley version is very good.... but this is my preferred choice.
  16. Phoenix was a wonderful arcade conversion, considering the limitations of the carts and console, whilst Yar’s Revenge and Adventure are simply sublime.
  17. Getting Away With It is indeed a wondrous thing... but it kind of ripped off Love My Way by The Psychedelic Furs.
  18. Been playing some top early 1980s shooters from William’s Electronics: Robotron 2084, Defender, Stargate & (my personal fave) Sinistar! All on Atari 5200 and on emulation of the arcade originals on my odroid. The colours and sounds are almost mesmeric at times and they take me back to the seaside arcades of my youth.
  19. Mario Kart on the Switch. Last Christmas Day, my son wiped the floor with me, the Mrs and his sister on 4 player split screen racing.... but I’ve been planning my revenge for 12 months and it will be served cold!!!
  20. It’s sad that Capcom don’t see this.... I even forced myself liked Dino Crisis 3 (yes, yes, I know)
  21. Oh please, Oh please, Oh please, let it be Dino Crisis!
  22. Oh my word! Missile Command, what a game that was! I remember as a kid in the early 80s, getting distinctly anxious as the nukes rained down on my remaining cities and bases and I fought a desperate losing battle to save humanity!! Atari certainly went through a purple patch of arcade classics in the late 70s/early 80s.
  23. 1 - Sinistar 2 - Defender 3 - Robotron 2084 4 - Hyper Dyne Side Arms 5 - Salamander 6 - R-Type 7 - Saint Dragon 8 - Rastan Saga 9 - Phoenix 10 - Scramble
