I mentioned my mate ran The Arcade Vaults in Cardiff, where you can turn up and play on old (and new) consoles and ting. Doccy G and I went, it was pretty cool and turns out we suck at games.

Anyway, they're doing a videogames quiz on Friday. Turn up (virtually, obv) and shizz.

I was working at Game when Perfect Dark came out. One of our customers had bought it from another shop in the morning, decided he didn't like it and traded it in at our store around lunch time.

He only lost about £30 on the whole deal.

It looks a bit easy. Although the pit section had me clenching my butt with rage.

Well the game gear was an overrated peace of shit to begin with anyway...

Got my pc engine mini yesterday, as a pleasant surprise.. (have my amazon at an old mail address i rarely use so didn't have any shipping confirmation and it had been months since ordering)..

Played some nice shooters,, sapphire is really nice in an early nineties demo scene / air wolf kind of way ... (and aparantly difficult to get normally)... nice little discovery project for the next week..


And i can just switch cables with my ones mini so it doesn'take much space

Billy Mitchel reinstated... ‘new evidence’ without stating what the evidence is.
L except that they don’t think a mamecapable computer would fit in a donkey kong cabinet. Something http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/0 ... ld_records

I think this is a good answer to that

https://twitter.com/sprinter461/status/ ... 6260811777




Basically all the evidence says he cheated - even evidence which had sat online for 10+ years showed the game loading levels up in the exact same broken way that *only* MAME did

No one is saying he's not a great player or that he could not do some / all of this stuff legit what is being said is the videos that he sent to 'prove' this to Twin Galaxys were created using MAME

Some other old / interesting reading (you'll probably need to click through to read the thread)

This thread is about the best match I can think of for this.

I bought COMMAND & CONQUER REMASTERED the other day (£18 on Origin) because I do like a bit of gaming nostalgia. Amazingly, as I was playing it Mrs Hearthly came in from the other room and said 'Is that Command & Conquer?', she hadn't even seen it, she literally just recognised the music and voices, on a game I last played sometime in the late 1990s.

Anyway, I digress, the SINISTER ALGORITHMS that rule our lives suggested this NoClip documentary on YouTube to me this morning, and I know some folks here like his stuff.

Enjoy, it's a fascinating and informative watch! :)

The sight behind this is fascinating - just looking at unused and hidden information in old games and comparing different revisions

I'd always play Jungle King if I saw it in an arcade. Simple, but fun gameplay and there wasn't much else around with the sampled sound effect at the start. If I wasn't playing that, I'd be looking for a Phoenix cabinet. :)
