Have we tried a 'lets all play' before?
« on: December 02, 2014, 12:55:20 PM »
I've had a quick look through the forum but haven't come across anything. That's not to say this hasn't been mentioned or tried before.

I quite like the idea of choosing a game that we all play for x amount of time (say, a month or so..?) and then chatting about how we're getting on with it. Maybe some high scores, achievements, tips etc. Nothing intense as I'm sure we're on limited time generally. It might just provide a nice conversation topic periodically.

I'm not suggesting any competition but you can get competitive if you like I guess.
Games can be suggested as and when.
Any game, any format.
A nice and leisurely approach.

Does that float anyone's boat?


If so this is game one, it ties in with another comp so a double whammy this one.. http://www.retrovideogamer.co.uk/index.php?topic=4959

Sounds good to me! Depends on the game and platform, but it could be a lot of fun :)

Gives me a good reason to finally get around to fixing the emulators on my Xbox.

Game of the week?

Well that's a bit of interest, sweet!

It'd be totally open to suggestion regarding what games and systems.
I think I would also suggest something less frequent to begin with. I don't think I'd have enough time to invest in a new game on a weekly basis. Whats the general consensus here?

We'll see if it gathers any more interest over the next couple of days then I'll have a think about some kind of format.

Good be quite good :-)

Emulation I think is key here as we all have different collections.

How about this one. Makes sense?

Ha, yeah! It's almost like fate, lol. I'll go for that.

I think a general group gaming setup is still a good idea. I won't let that slip.

Yeah I'd go for that too! Can anyone recommend a good Intellivision emulator for Android?

What if I don't do emulators, but I have tons of systems. Would original hardware still be an option as well?

Yeah I don't see why not. In fact that can add an extra element to it.
