I kind-of miss it here and there.. The pubs are definately better in the UK, but they aren't so bad here either. I prefer the weather here too.. Summer is hot, Winter is cold. (Although you do need to bundle up if you're going anywhere in Winter - you can't just wing it or you'll get frostbite.) At ...

damn... the downloads are disabled :( If you're referring to the downloads on the Bird Sanctuary website, they will be up again soon.

Just remembered another one - Sidewize - Was a bit like the arcade game 'Side Arms'.. Not a bad little shoot-em-up, as I remember.

Oh yeah, a couple of others:

A couple of ideas: Firstly, there's a diskmag section, so how about one that pays homage to real magazines like 'Atari ST User', 'ST Format', 'Zero', etc. Possibly with scans or transcriptions of reviews (or even entire mags, but I guess that would require off-site linkage). Secondly - How about an ...

It really is a shame that they bothered trying to resurrect this one, it would probably do ok as one of the free games you get with magazines perhaps. They already re-made it with Pirates! Gold back in 1993, which was basically the original game with much better graphics, sound, etc. and a couple o...

But the messages they spread are so important!

It's imperative that everyone realizes "Teh RabidHakzor PWNS U!" (or whatever..) - It's such an important message, and if a few peoples' hard work is destroyed to spread it... Well, that's just the way it has to be.

So what's the deal with the Falcon? Are they actually worth getting or not?
