You have got to hope that they do not read this thread and get ideas

Yea they also have a tendancy to gang up on you early on. Hence why pretty much every planet in my empire produces starships!

Playing at the moment. Got the Edo and the Benzites early on. Edo guardian is defending that planet which is my major research base and the Benzites are pumping out ships

Nice! nobody will be touching the Edo defended planet. I`ve almost forgotton what all the minor races perks are. Betazoids gave a diplomacy bonus if I remember.

The psp is handy to play the retro games on.

Seem to spend hours playing Pheonix.
I bought arkanoid from xbox live and thats a disaster once you start playing it. Next thing you know its the middle of the night. Speedball 2 still gets played when the lads come round for a few beers.

I still have an amiga and kick off2 comes out once in a while too.

I'm playing a few bits and boobs on the PSP as well, Super Mario World, again and Kirbys Dreamland, fantastic, and after commenting on it the other day, I started playing a spot of Defender II on the 2600 emu for the PSP, its great, I own it proper too, but the PSP is a tad more portable than the 2600! I tried the original Defender port to the 2600 as well, mother of god, it sucks almost as much as Pacman did, amazing how bad they made it, and yet, like Ms Pacman, the sequel is far far superior.
Reckon Atari just rushed them out, flooding the market with that kinda crap, sales returns indicating that they should try harder next time, which they did!
Didn't stop it all crashing in 83 though.

Playing Laser Squad on my Speccy emulator, would play on the real thing but its in a box as "its" room has long since been taken over by children. No one warned me about that side effect of having kids.

Oh and I love Pacman on the 2600 even though its cack. It was one of the first video games I ever played. I think the year we got the 2600, we only had that and Combat to play, my older brother stayed up for 11 hours playing it!

Played Sonic 1 & 2 through on the Megadrive & MasterSystem last week after i got fed up of playing the PC.

Been playing random ones too on the megadrive i kinda picked up for the sake of it and never really played, like Pete Sampres Tennis, Spot Goes to Hollywood, Dynamite Heady, Tetris and Micromachines. None of them are exactly great but i've got into them, i think im addicted to Tetris!

Gave it a good spin on the UMDC during the weekend, got fairly far into it and it just gets more bizarre with each level

Pete Sampres Tennis. I never considered liking a tennis game until I rented that game out. Turned everything on it's head. So much fun.

Heh, just got a phone call from my mam -

'A guy just drove up to the house in a car and handed me a huge box full of cassette tapes...?????'

Must be the Spectrum games!
