    I finally completed SM3 the other night. I high fived the 13 year old me

    It’s on the PS store for like £3 I think

    It’s how fast it’s changed. I read somewhere (in 2016) that if you take the very first computer and the latest computer the PS3 is the middle of the road :lol:

  2. There used to be a game in a cafe (at least I think it was a cafe) which was in Crowtree Road in the early/mid 80's. In the same block as McGurk's, but more up towards the Londonderry end. It was a laserdisc game. Only one I recall ever seeing. Having checked it out just now, I'm pretty sure it was Astron Belt.

    Even better there’s about 5/6 of them! Only downside is there’s a lot of loud septics get in there. Who then proceed to ask me where in australia I’m from :lol: I have quite a thick London accent haha! Literally 90% of them think Australian. Very odd.

    Did you used to cheat at track and field by using the half egg cups out of the machines.,to make them run faster. :lol:

    Super Mario was easy until you came to the up and down bit at the end, about 4 from the end. If you got it wrong you just ran out of time. :lol:

    When I saw the thread title I thought of a side scrolling rocket ship that fired and dropped bombs. Was that scramble ?
