Posted:Yesterday I had a revelation, a memory was brought to me which had long since been lost.

For long time I have been trying to remember the name of the child with the powerful punch who you took through the amazing worlds created my some massive pixels. Who was this child??

Suddenly i was just sitting down watching family guy and I remembered the child, that juvenile delinquant known as Alex Kidd!! so i have now downloaded alex kidd on my laptop and some emulator to make a master system game work on comp, but anyway my whole point not only to show off i found it but was also how come im a lot worse at it now than when i was 9?? how hard is it to jump over some blocks and watch out for fish that evily go left n right. hmmm anyone know any cheats?? ubblol

Posted:for codes you can go to gamewinners.com or 1up.com. one of those sites should have codes for it

Posted:When I was very young we had one of those things where you have a little white ball that is square and two oblong paddles and they call it 'football' or 'tennis'.

It was great at the time, the absolute cutting edge of technology.

And fun.



Much later, when I had my kid and I gt him the sega the other two games I remember loving as well as Alex Kidd, were the first sonic game, I finished that. i was so proud.

and another game called Ultima 4, it was like a final fantasy game, only flat,and there was a talking horse, and I couldn't finish it cosI couldn't find theshrine of spirituality. I sometimes still wonder where it was.

Also if you didn't give money to the beggars it was bad news and it said you had 'lost an eigth' (I don't think that is spelt right, 8th) It used to make me laugh.

Ah, the good old days....

Posted:I pulled my VIC 20 out of the loft the other day. Remember those days when everything was on tape and it used to take half an hour to load a game? *sigh*. No Windows Blue Screen of Death.

Right, I'm playing Pong for three days solid now.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:Hey on Super Mario World on the SNES (Super Famicom or something in the US) there was like a whole secret world... kind of like the rest of the game but with different colours! I was ecstatic when I found that, and I crowned myself god of gaming. It was like getting a golden joystick on gamesmaster biggrin
