Oids is awesome. Not your typical balls to the wall all-action shoot-em-up but great gameplay and a good challenge none the less.

I have a little bit of space in my spare room (and a very tolerant wife) so in there I have: Atari STFM Acorn Electron XBOX 360 And I alternate the other space between a Saturn, a Dreamcast, A Speccy +2 and an Amstrad CPC 464. My mate bought me a Vectrex for my birthday, so that may be on permanent ...

I have to echo X3peri_MENTaL's comments, the Zipstick is superb, highly accurate, loose yet responsive. As for the speedking, I remember a similar design called the 'Bug' by Cheetah, I think. This was also 'cradled' in your left hand. I really digged this joystick. It was light, responsive and for s...

I think I'd give it a miss. Especially if you're a Floyd fan but not necessarily a Waters fan. He was an awesome song writer back in the day, but Floyd songs without the silky tones (both vocal and guitar) of Dave Gilmour are sadly lacking. Still, he is a legend. And you're not going to get many opp...

I use a widescreen monitor, and when I use the 'laptop' option under the fullscreen section of the options menu, the ST fills the screen. It's not quite the original ratio, sure, but at least it gets rid of those letterbox voids on the top and bottom of the screen, and things don't look as squished....

No, I was actually being sarcastic about the condition my falcon is in. But I guess you were referring to the software? So you didn't put a window and lights into your Falcon? THANK GOD! The last thing the world needs is another ruined Falcon. I hope nobody flames me. Just to be sure, there is no s...

How about a Championship Manager 2006/07 season update? That would be cool... I'd lose my life to that game all over again.

Nice game Simon! It's definitely got that 'one more go' factor. It's cost me an hours extra kip tonight! It always seems to give me cards that screw me over, is it random? I doubt it :wink: .

The oddest game I've played recently is Monty Python's Flying Circus.

If you think about it, Lemmings is pretty odd. I mean, have you ever seen a lemming with a pick axe?
