    Old Games you remember playing but can't remember the name of.

    So I was raiding one of my old hard drives for salvageable files and DOS stuff and found this in my QuikMenu icons file. My Dad and I made a bunch of icons for various games, and grabbed them out of various EXEs and such. I know (and still have!) most of these, but one's escaping me - the...

    The Increadibles 2 trailer.

    A real shame they couldn't have got this sorted out sooner before the supporting cast died (Mirage) or retired (Rick Dicker)... the Sin City 2 problem. Yeah, this was my take too. I mean, I'll still watch the hell out of it (I love the first one too much not to), but that joke is old (even for...

    Poll: The Aliens Series

    1. Aliens 2. Alien 3. Alien: Resurrection 4. Alien vs Predator 5. Prometheus 6. Alien 3 I haven't seen AVP2, and I'll probably hit up Covenant tomorrow. It's clearly not a patch on the first two, but I actually really enjoy Resurrection. Yeah, it's a total mess, with nobody involved...

    And nothing of value was lost.

    Sega Has a Bayonetta Countdown

    The Xbox 360 Bayonetta dashboard theme was laden with 8-bit era references - the Bayonetta As Wonder Boy In Monster Land is the one that sticks in the mind the most. I already bought a Wii U solely for Bayo 2. If it's Bayo 3 for the Switch I will not be impressed. Steam interactions suggest a...

    8 Shows and Movies That Make the Tech-Savvy Of Us Cringe

    Yeah, it's been too long since I saw Die Hard 4.0 but I knew it didn't look right. Um. 1) The Core

    Meet The Yugoslavian PC Mag Cover Girls of the 80s and 90s

    Your Sinclair magazine, issue 29 (UK, May 1988)... <img src=http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/magazinesfromthepast/images/9/94/Your_Sinclair_Issue_29.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/416?cb=20101206192905>

    Blizzard Drops the Name Battle.net, Nothing Else Changes

    Battle.net is still the name of the launcher they use to start up games though - presumably that'll change too and I'll be running some other stupidly named and completely unnecessary piece of software instead.

    Zero Punctuation: No Man's Sky

    They're still going (with the kid bemoaning the stuff lasting forever), even though modern Fairy Liquid bottles look nothing like rockets any more...

    Judging By The Cover: Judging Summer Games

    A lot of Epyx games covers looked like that around then - made sense for Winter Games, I guess, but not so much Impossible Mission. (also Winter Games > Summer Games)

    Nvidia Settles GTX 970 Lawsuit, Will Refund Every Purchaser $30

    Not sure if they're still around, but I know I've definitely seen machines with "WARRANTY VOID IF REMOVED" stickers over the side panel edgings.

    Nvidia Settles GTX 970 Lawsuit, Will Refund Every Purchaser $30

    Don't underestimate the level of muppetry that goes into computer sales. The number of customers I get coming up to me at work and saying "I really like this HP / Acer / Lenovo machine but I want a better graphics card" is ridiculous - as is the number of times I have to say "#1 changing...

    It's Hard to Get Nostalgic About Games You Didn't Grow Up On

    Case in point: Pok?mon GO. And yeah, growing up loading off tapes for my ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC6128 has given me a lot more patience than most of the customers I deal with at work these days, who think their computer is terminally broken if there's a half second between them furiously...

    Your customer service experience. The good, the bad, the funny, the outrage & bizarre.

    If it was five years ago that somebody said 6-8 hours, then it would have been recovery media. Built in partitions do the job for the majority of people these days, but there's still an astonishingly large number of customers who expect a laptop to come with a pile of CDs to reinstall everything...
