    Star Trek: Picard

    It's giving me a feel of Le Carré's "A Legacy of Spies", which is promising at least.

    Retro gaming magazine scan archives

    Odd question, and this seemed to be the best place to ask before I go off and try it myself: are the magazines scanned solely in image format? So you can’t just copy and paste review text or whatever? I dimly remember that I could select some text in an old AP scan a while back, but I’m not sure if my failing mind is playing tricks on me.
  4. Is…is there a support group? (I've got a 2nd! Once!)

    Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story

    Everybody of a certain age should watch this. Quixotically British.

    Rare/collectable Spectrum Games

    I had Heroes of The Lance on the Speecy! It was shit. It was not helped by me buying it on holiday, spending a week reading the manual, getting very excited…and then actually playing it. (my choices were not great - as exhibit B, I give you the time where I put Terminator 2 on my Christmas list. And got it. Now that was a Christmas afternoon of disappointment)

    Nobody has ever confirmed it, but I feel that Frankie Goes To Hollywood (also Denton Designs) was probably the closest to what Bandersnatch would have been on the Speccy. GFTG has the graphics routines, but Frankie has most of what was being hyped about the Megagames. (I'm 99% a real person)

    …the name of the game

    Before 1976, when the US adopted the Berne Convention, US copyright (from 1909) was based around a period of 28 years with a renewal term of a further 28 years if requested. Also, there were a few oddities like actually having to explicitly claim copyright - Charade, an Audrey Hepburn film from 1963, omitted the notice by mistake and immediately entered the public domain.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    It's a shame that Lee & Herring get written out of the 'official history' so often…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I have a long-held view that the Imperial architecture department was taken over by the Rebellion a long time ago…

    Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    Amazon is where I've ordered it from, and they're normally good about getting games delivered on day of release (plus often knock about $5 off if you order far enough in advance). We don't seem to have magic like ShopTo over here…
