Dominic Diamond is fat and bald now

I would love it if this came back, about time gaming was properly back on TV. They've got to have Patrick Moore as the Gamesmaster though.

The games show on sky 1 was better. Gamesmaster wasn't bad I suppose

i used to love patrick moores tips on sonic the hedgehog

on the start screen wibble, press back wible forward wibble , left wibble left wibble right wibble left wibble.. and you get naff all...!

Supermod

Yes, yes and YES. Used to watch this religiously so would love it to return.

Are you joking? Gamezville with those two complete and utter rudeboy wannabe nob ends presenting it? I always loved how they knew feck all about games and there was this whole team of knowledgable people in the background who should have presented it. The Games Guru was hilarious though, I'll admit that!

Read about Gamesmaster potentially returning yesterday and that Diamond is pretty much already ruled out. I love rewatching now and understanding so many more of his subtle in-jokes :-D. Without Dom, it's pointless thing in my eyes! I hated it when Dexter Fletcher presented it (although it was his series that has the classic appearance by a young Simon Amstell.

They may as well just rebrand. Gamesmaster is a magazine to me now.

It sure is!!

By the way... the question I asked Games Master about Alex the Kid, I managed to get past it last week....

I also had a MS 1 too, with Super Hang on built in!

Not sad at all! If anything, if they're in good condition or better and boxed, they could be worth a mint eventually... Well, some of them could be worth a lot now! Check out the prices of sealed/boxed retro stuff on ebay, some of it's shocking!

I know... thats why i kept them safe...

A MS1 and Mega Drive 1 fully boxed... can go for £50 upwards each..

Im more keen at saving them for the moment... let them sit in the loft and garage for another 10 years at least!

My other half always goes on about them!! ie.. take them to the tip! LOL !!

Without going off topic....... The best console i have is the Amiga 32 CD playing Damon Hill F1 or Zool, or it could be the dream cast...........

To be honest.... there all good! :thumbsup:

I could never get past the last boss, if I ever got that far, always got to the last level due to the continue mode(that wasnt well known at the time) but couldnt jump over his floating shurikens!

Ahh Alex Kidd. I have played through it countless times. One of my favourite games of all time - good job they put it on the wii marketplace

Did anyone else love donkey kong country on the snes?

i have the mega collection but I am sad it does not have sonic and knuckles.

the donkey kong country games were great.

Although i never had a SNES, was more of a SEGA kid.

But then i had an Atari Jaguar at one point. Very underrated console.

The girls from BITS should present it. Emily Bouff is mega

Yes, they should do two a week and one should be a retro version. I want to see more about the games I grew up with.

Alex Kidd and Wonderboy III - The Dragons Trap = Best. Games. Ever.
