For The Love Of Sci-Fi

The weekend of December 1st & 2nd sees a HUGE Sci-Fi event descend into Manchester. For The Love Of Sci-Fi, from Monopoly Events, is bringing Film legends and TV stars to Manchester. If you remember 80s film classics like ET, Predator, Rocky and Red Sonja then you will love meeting the guests at this event. […]

Jamie And The Magic Torch

Here’s one even my mum remembers. And who could forget it? For years I search for Jamie and the Magic Torch on video, and then along came the Gods know as Pearson TV, who released it on video. Bless their cotton socks! To be honest, I couldn’t remember much about this program other than Jamie […]

8-Bit On A Budget

The good computer games in the 80s, for the original 8-bit machines, were usually around a tenner. It took me about a month to save up enough money to buy Frank Bruno’s Boxing, but I played it for hours. I know Mastertronic had released a few games early on for £1.99, which was great. It […]

Tiswas

What on Earth is going on with Saturday morning TV these days. God, that made me feel old! Anyway, back to my rant, what exactly is going on here? We have a bunch of wannabe stars (who in my opinion are more camp than a tent in a field) trying to entertain the kids of […]

Comic Con Scotland – For The Love of 80s

“Whoa!” That was genuinely what I said when I saw the line-up of guests at Comic Con Scotland. I go to quite a few Comic Cons every year and the main draw for me are the guests. I do love buying geeky things from the stalls, and I do go to talks to listen to […]

The world’s most recognisable video game ‘PAC-MAN’ has gone back to where it began with one of the most realistically-presented formats of the original platform. ‘PAC-MAN’ as a character inspired generations and the […]

MCM Comiccon Manchester

For those of us of a geeky nature, this weekend sees MCM Comiccon’s huge event taking place in Manchester! I am a huge fan of Conventions and Comiccons. I’ve met quite a few famous people at them, (I’m genuinely not bragging that I hang around with celebs in real life – I don’t, and I […]

Deck of Justice

For a big section of my early childhood I played card games. I would’t say I grew up playing card games, as regular readers will be aware I spent most of my childhood, from about age 10 onward, on my Spectrum. But the rest of my family loves card games, so we had loads of […]

Interview with Oliver Harper

Oliver Harper is a film maker, YouTuber and lover of 80s action films. He loves 80s action films so much so that he set up a Kickstarter campaign to make a film called In Search Of The Last Action Heroes. It turns out that hundreds of other people also love 80s action films, as his […]

The event, which ran from around midday until 4pm, had everything a retro gamer could need – free arcade games to play, loads of new t-shirts and hoodies to buy and guests from the world of YouTube.
