    if you want a nine guy you can actually send a postcard to the Channel 9 studio in building 20 at one Microsoft way. I personally ship those :)

    Load Runner has a nostalgic place in my heart. I spent a lot of time playing that on my old Apple II clone. Glad to see these games getting updated.


    Thanks for the shout out last week and the bridge it the Forth Rail Bridge.


    I'm loving the return of the older Xbox games to windows phone 8, I've previously bought lots of those and parachute panic is excellent.

    I'd also recommend Max and the Magic Marker. If you are a sucker for "old" gaming like I used to remember way back then the Game Room games are fun.


    I would love to see the release of the NFL app on Xbox One to those not in the US. I'm in the UK and would use this, but sadly it isn't available to us over here.
