BAFTA thinks Lara Croft is just about as iconic as a game character can get, do you agree. We might soon see retro gaming on Apple's iOS but what exactly do their new rules mean? We don't have a clue but we'll talk about it anyway. 3M used to be big in the world of the Floppy Disk but they jumped ship early....why was that?

All this and a load of other news that has been submitted by YOU on our Reddit page. Thanks for doing that by the way, you're all ace.

Our sponsor, PIXEL ADDICT magazine, would like you to know that they now have the ability to offer rolling subscriptions. No longer will you have to remember to renew every 6 or 12 months. It is just as well as each six weeks the mag is packed with news, reviews, previews and plenty of shared memories. Please take a look at and tell them we sent you for no reason other to remind them that we exist.
