    What type of retro fan are you?

    I'll buy any old shit.
  2. Jesus, Wednesday from 19.30 must be pro time because I've been getting absolutely hammered for the past half hour. Trash half way up the screen within seconds - or so it feels. CRUSHING.

    The Chase

    You should apply to be an egghead, Sean. You’ve got an answer for everything.

    The Chase

    Hell no, who the fuck has that kind of general knowledge? It's crazy.

    The Chase

    The chaser's final question in order to catch the contestants last night was "What's half of four hundred?". Gasp.

    Philips CD-i Appreciation Thread

    3DO is still a worthwhile curio now, there are plenty of good games to warrant picking one up for a look. I certainly enjoyed my time with that console. Same with the CD32 especially now the community have put together so many compilations of patched A500 and AGA games to play on it. GX4000 is worth owning if you can get hold of a C4CPC cart because again, the active community has patched up many standard CPC games to work perfectly with it, plus it’s a chunky little delight of a thing. 32X is the only one of those I have currently but I haven’t really used it enough to form an opinion. Metal Head seems fairly impressive. CD-i though...I’d seriously only bother if you have cash to throw away on curiosity.

    Chaos Control and that scrolling fighter are alright, otherwise it's utter shite. Put your money towards a nicer van. 80 "games"...
  9. Oh man, just nipped on for one quick go and ended up with a fourth and two thirds. That blocky chicken is so close.
  10. Got an eighth place last night. The pieces were dropping so fast that I felt like could no nothing once I was attacked. More stressful than the final circle of PUBG.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    Life of Agony? That'd be really fucking weird. Straight into a primetime BBC 1 spot. Right where Partridge belongs. Let battle commence!

    Battlefield V

    It depends what you're playing really - stepping away from the mainstream, The Brothers in Arms games had a decent suppression system, as did Full Spectrum Warrior. Red Orchestra and Rainbow 6 games have had nice effects when you were under suppressing fire.

    Agree. And Mole Mania, Batman, Mystical Ninja, Trip World, Battle Bull and at the top of that pile, Trax.

    Anyone know much about scanline generators for VGA? As far as I can gather they're intended for use at standard 640x480 resolution. My monitor won't display that properly and just stretches it out so that it looks even worse than the native resolution of 1280x720. The company that built my cabinet finally managed to send out a scanline generator after a lot of back and forthing, but it doesn't look great. It's okay, but introduces a lot of flickering and distortion to the lines around the outer edges. Not sure if that's just a limitation of cheap VGA SLG's or if it's due to the resolution of the monitor really. Have sent an email to the guys that make the more expensive SLG-3000 to see what they say, but I suspect I'll be shit out of luck if I want to approximate a CRT on this LCD. Not that it matters greatly.
