its not about money, games cost a fortune when the nes & megadrive was used by schoolkids, they're probably relatively cheaper now. its about game geeks been unable to interact with other humans because people dont have buttons or a manual with cheats in.

Any links then?

Yes it must be difficult finding the information you need on ICE in the ICE section, information on fixing the leak on your punto in the punto section.

We should bang it in one section as that would be far easier for everyone to find the information they need

the majority is in favour tbh all i think we need is one section to cover all consoles and i guess could even share it with pc issues? would be nice to have them separate but if it means we get one then

i really would like to moderate it (start at the bottom eh) but im sure it would make more sense being done by polecat or sammi!

come on ben you know you want to

Re: an online gaming section.

A single sub forum of LL would be great for gaming. So many times people try to organise AA or CS or TOCA games but the request for players just gets gobbled up by random LL stuff.

Also be good for PC issues too as we do get a lot since we're an online forum
