Re: Nemesis Music 2007

I really liked the '07 track, obviously it's nothing compared to the original but sounded great in the station none the less!

Thanks for sharing Nemair! :)

Re: Grabby machines hardly win anymore..

We have one of these at our workplace, one week it paid out so many prizes we took it upon ourselves to change the settings and attempt to not give away as many.

In future they're not going to bother with themed staff if this is everyone's reaction.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Even though I knew what was coming, it's a high energy 'experience' (rather than just a ride on it's own) with the preshows and the postshow as well that not many people saw coming. Even though there were a fair few FX failur...
