LOAD "TWBG - RETRO GAMING"

 

SEARCHING...

 

This week, we dig out our horn-rimmed glasses, turtle-neck cardigans and brown slacks and go headlong into the world of Retro Gaming, looking back into consoles and computers, asterisks and arcades, joysticks and...other things beginning with J. We ask what is Retro, whether there is pleasure in simplicity, how important is playability (answer: very), and whether it's worth your while going any further than Championship Manager 01/02 if your looking for a football management game.

 

Plus our thimble of win involves naked Japanese men, grizzled cowboys and a madman in a box.

Sequels. Love, loathe or detest them, if you love cinema, then you can't avoid them. But how to categorise them? What makes a sequel worth your time? In the first of a new occasional feature, your favourite geeks play Judge Judy and Executioner to a host of follow-ups, deciding upon their worthiness and giving our criteria and whimsical judgements for doing so, choosing which go where we don't need roads, and which are subject to death by exile.

 

Plus in our Thimble of Win, there's the rise of the old ones (or is there?), the fall of a despicable troll, and several generations of British comedy in a variety of different formats.

 

This time, it's personal...
