This might well be covered by that video, which I'm yet to watch, but I often wonder whether Ian Bell is bitter towards David Braben about his success or anything.

Part 6 (starts about the 45 minute mark) - tries to cover the fallout from both sides of view

I'm quite sure all is not as it seems with this but interesting anyway

If I hadn't already got a Pandora's Box thing, I'd be seriously tempted to buy this one

I read that a couple of days ago and it reminded me of when snes emulation first started, and how Pilotwings (and Mario Kart) were amongst the games that didn't work because of the dsp-1 chip.
I remember visiting Daves Classics every day to see if snes9x or zsnes had been updated to support it.

Not sure I ever remember watching the demo though.

The order of the demos seems to be randomised too (or at least different between the two cart types). I have two copies of the game at the moment and the plane demo was the fourth one up and it landed fine. Second copy, the plane demo was third and it crashed.

Arcade Club's Leeds site will be opening this month. Still no exact date though.

On a smaller scale, Retroids in Worcester is expanding soon.
