OFF TOPIC / Re: Redecorating Bedroom - RETRO :D
« on: July 27, 2009, 07:32:59 PM »
 :( I've seen that before .. my rooms not big enough for one of those xD but its a large room.. holds double bed, 32" tv and i have all my consoles spread everywhere xD a desktop PC with 2 monitors.. fitted wardrobes and a 70's record player!

I'm thinking about having a zapper lamp one side and a sega phaser the other side.

I'm having a space invaders image stencilled on the wall above my bed and am planning to frame and mount some of my favourite game posters (duke nukem 64) being one of them.

OFF TOPIC / Redecorating Bedroom - RETRO :D

Looking to redecorate my room this summer and am bored of the 'intelligent/sophisticated' look so am going with a retro gaming theme  ;D

I have a few idea's from different sites .. like the Nintendo zapper lamp etc.

Any idea's?

I'm trying to find a nice bed set too but no luck so far.

Did we talk?

Humm not sure.. i was the kid in the leather jacket and jeans xD.. bought some stuff off of Jon (flicky) and was only there for the Saturday.

Just to add, I thought the few items on sale were VERY reasonably priced ! t-shirts £4. Not wishing to start arguments but at Insert Coin 09 last weekend t-shirts of similar design were £15, which personally i think is a joke.

YAY for more Retro Computer events in the future  :D

Wasn't sure where I should post so hope this is right.

I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to the organisers and supporters of the event, as well everyone who made me so welcome on the Saturday.  :)

I really enjoyed seeing the different consoles and also different views on the best console ever.

After an entire month of weekends away I certainly won't be going anywhere in August  :'( but am definitely looking forward to coming to another event like this soon  ;D

had a look over your site there and there are some definite things I would be interested in, however as with the magazines postage would be an issue.

Console Combat? No didn't even know about it until I just looked it up, I have been away 3 out of 4 weekends of July so stretching it to all 4 could be risking an argument  :-\ - however I can try and see what I can do, main problem being I don't drive so train, coach or lift are my only options, so I will try my best to see what I can come up with as this looks to be a good event.

I thought the official tips mag was the same thing! BUT i have

#8 Official Tips Magazine-UK   and #7

and the following Playstation 2 Official Magazine-UK

#42 ( The Getaway 2)
#31 ( Enter The Matrix)
#32 (Splinter Cell)
#40 (Lord Of The Rings)

Then for Play i have : #99 #100 #103#106 #111 #114       #101

i have more of both types lying about in boxes all pretty much perfect condition as read once and then placed in a drawer somewhere. Let me know if you want me to keep digging or are interested in the ones i have.

I am not a fan of these magazines so swapping would be wasted on me, i would like these to go to a good home etc. If you have say a old game or 2 i'm interested in or maybe want to put a money value on them let me know. I'm very happy to help you complete your collection.

edit: added more that I've found.

Our favorites were -

Crimsons Skies
Unreal Tournament 99 - Hilarious with the character mods/sound packs
Interstate 76

Interstate '76 ! what a game i got this back in the day for my windows 95 system, interestingly it will load perfect on windows xp by just turning off graphic acceleration!

My favourites are -
Stonekeep (interplay)
Duke Nukem 3D
Castle of the winds (win3.1 and up!)
and the old dos/win 95 Lion King was pretty good too.
