Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've had my Gameboy since 1989 and it has done me proud, Tetris & Tennis around Europe ,backpacking tours of Oz to Commuting on the over packed meat wagons of London Underground.
    I did get a Gameboy Pocket in 1996, but should I get more hi tech and with the times? :D
  2. Or realise that you're far too old for toys.
  3. No.

    Retro is hip! :p
  4. Quite. Read a book.
  5. I've had an Amstrad CPC464 since 1985 that has seen me through many a lonely night, esp Bomb Jack, Frank Bruno's Boxing and Fruit Machine. I'm finding it increasingly hard to find games for now though, should I upgrade :?
  6. I wile away the hours on long nights flicking the balls on my abacus from side to side.
    A few years ago I swapped out the memory and went from 10 green balls on row 3 to 20 red ones.
    It still serves me fine.
    However, should I upgrade in the future to a calculator? :)
  7. I gave my son a pair of trousers with holes in the pockets.
    They give him something to keep him warm and something to play with. I doubt I'll upgrade.
  8. I can't remember how or why I came across it but I remember seeing a vid of someone using the internet on a commadore 64.
  9. Your probably right I can remember back in 1985 an article in a mag for commodores and they were taking about modems then and that you'd be able to sell your house order shopping etc via it.

  10. You would forget why you were wanking by the time your badly pixelated porn had finished downloading.
