    mmm...I'm gonna start buying edge again soon. I switched to games tm but reading old issues of edge just made me realise how much better edge is.

    I used to read GamesMaster, but then I realised it was kind of shite. I'll check out Edge.

    theres room for both imo, GAMEStm is more ofr a quick read on the crapper

    EDGE is for sitting down and reading

    Yes we are a friendly community...

    reason: People buy GP32's so they have an excuse to get involved in the community :D

    that doesnt happen on any other device!!

    I love it here!

    sPaCe :ph34r:

    EDIT: just read that post on the retro gamer forum

    what an asshole - he downloaded warez! - he trolled the board to provoke a reaction! - and then bitched about it on other forums!

    have you read the contents of their board?

    :p

    Without the community, there is no GP32, simple as that. no homebrew would be produced, and no emulators would be made. And that RetroGamer thing is just a load of BS. It was rather obvious he was up to no good :angry:

    hmmm....jumping to conclusions there a little. He explained himself and it seemed to be a reasonable explanation.

    Also, I realy can't understand why people get so het up about warez in the first place...jesus, pot. kettle. black. y'dig?

    :D

    We dont like stealing from Game park thats all ;-) it jeapordises the future of the GP!! those games are current (and they are only a couple of dollars to DL)

    where-as the only wares that might get played on the GP are from de-funct systems...

    if nintendo began production of the NES again - they would hunt us all down with guns and dogs - and murder us and our families in our sleep :ph34r:

    I'm not gonna disagree on that one, but I still think that his explanatino of his "warez" was pretty reasonable.

    And tbh I doubt the gp32_console HAS a future (not commercially anyway)!

    You 'crap' standing up??? I like to take my time, read a mag, play a couple of tables on pinball dreams (which I managed to download for free off a... I'M JOKING!!!).

    Seriously, as a complete noob, you've all been lovely to me, and helped such a lot! The comments tooMark were over the top, tho.

    I can honestly say, I've never flamed anyone! (Except that Lubidog, he is a complete W&"n"er, hu cant evan spel!), but it is kinda wierd joining a forum. It's like going up to a bunch of people and saying whether you like it or not, I'm gonna talk to you, and be your mate!!!

    So sorry in advance for all the stoopid questions and speling miztakes I will make!


    BTW, Retro gamer is very good, and Gamestm is okay too. EDGE is good, but some of the writers are a bit too up themselves for my taste, and they speak a language I don't understand! (Apart from Mr Biffo, is he still in it?) just my opinion.


    You can all go to bed now

    Its because you seem like a nice person lubidog - who genuinly likes your GP and the forum - and your questions are not annoying... :D

    With forums, if you approach things with the attitude that says 'ok im crashing in on an ongoing conversation so id better be polite' then youll get on fine... theres an etiquet that exists on the internet, if you break it then people will react...

    that mark guy was just rude from the outset, he should have realised he'd made a faux pas and tried to sort it out...

    He seemed to come to the forum expecting there to be trouble...

    you only get what you give!

    If you want to get something from a forum you have to put something in!
