Humans? You're making a rather large
assumption there buddy [emoji12]
Welcome to the forum. I'll look forward to following the ZX Spectrum conversion.

I must have missed this so far!
Love the basic layout. The US perspective on classic gaming is always intriguing as it was so different to the UK.
I read the P-51 Mustang article. What a heartwarming story.
A lot more to read but I'm hooked [emoji106]

Master System and arcade gaming on a Friday night sounds ace!
I'd be tempted into a few rounds of Bomb Jack or Juno First if my cab was up and running....
The last Master system game I played was Castle if Illusion.
GnG has seen some great poets over a few systems,a generally great game but rock hard. Especially for someone as shit at games as me, lol.

Shipping cost is $20 for pretty much anywhere in the world.
Oof! They'll probably appear on UK sites at some point, like Funstock or suchlike. I'll wait until then...

This is more like it! Only time will tell whether $20 is a reflection on quality or a genuine reasonable price. I think it looks ace. I'd have one, but what colour?
I have grey, blue and yellow original controllers. I quite like the standard grey to be honest. Not sure about the translucent coloured idea though.
I couldn't see any shipping costs knocking around, particularly to the UK.

Is this the modern day Power Glove? It just looks rubbish and pointless. There must be a market for it though I guess.

£44, really? I hadn't even looked at prices but that's just crazy.
I've got a negative view of pricing in the 'retro' scene generally and think £30 is taking the piss for a book, but £44 is taking that to the next level.

What's the problem? I'm sure there are plenty of companies in Shenzhen willing to churn these out and it's not like Nintendo are short of industry experience. I really don't get it. They could literally sell millions of these things.

The stretch goals look good, I like the sound of the system poster. This is what stretch goals should be!Collectible shit, not an extra 100777 accumulated pages...
I agree with the cover not really reflecting the content design. Could do with reviewing I suppose.

Retro Chat / What Would Make the Ultimate 'Throwback' Console?
« on: July 25, 2017, 08:17:43 AM »
We've seen a lot of re-issue/re-make/throwback consoles over the years; stuff like the OUYA, Retron 5, ZX Spectrum Vega, Atari Flashback, even Sega Forever would fall into this bracket. An eclectic mix of ideas but as far as i can tell most of them fall far short of the mark.

The Official Nintendo Classic series seems to have took the bull by the horns and delivered (and will deliver..!) what people expect.

But what do we actually want? Do we even know? What would make the ultimate retro machine?

A software app with a subscription to digital distribution?
Dedicated hardware based on original designs with FPGA based emulation. Built in games and/or subscription based service.
Single or multi format? Developer or distributor based?
Exact replica Bluetooth controllers?
Would we buy physical media?
Do we want new games on new systems based on old franchises and gameplay?

I just don't know...

Don't wait.......SPECULATE!!
Is it a Netflix style system? Will it be like the OUYA and fail just as spectacularly? Do Atari even know what it is, or what it wants to create? Is that why they're 'holding back' information in the hope that we'll speculate and they can gauge what we want as consumers? 4K Pacman!

Yeah it's the modern aspect that's interesting. I guess the retro stuff is a straight forward question of what systems are emulated. Is this some sort of Android based stuff or more bespoke, I wonder. I reckon it will be fed from the web at least.

What's the speculation about what this thing will do then?

Lakers v Celtics is down to £2900 now. Still crazy money but was up to £9300 a few days ago. He must have had a couple of bell ends bidding.

Retro Chat / Re: Let's Compare Mortal Kombat 3

I've been playing a lot of Mortal Kombat X recently. This has led to looking back at previous games and the franchise history so this is a well timed post for me mate cheers!
Good example of cheap tactics on the players behalf though, especially with Sub-Zero. Lol.
