Looks great, afraid the Atari isnt on my list of machines i follow. BUT cant wait for Greyfox's second book, the arcade one. Cant believe Bitmap or Boyo havent done an arcade one yet. Cant wait

I second that. I remember seeing the arcade book years ago and wanting a piece of that.

Re: Buying CD's

Been a buying a few CD's again lately, used 90's stuff. Really is a fantastic time to be a buyer and add to your collection(s) due to the giveaway prices on anything other than the genuinely rare or collectable. Picked up an Apollo Four Forty album and the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack for a coupl...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Just in case there's anyone else who hasn't already been terminally put off by what you've heard so far, it turns out that nine of the games on the system are the PAL versions.

New Zealand Story (MAME) Love this game and play it a lot, only discovered about 6 months ago that there are 'warp gates' in the game.

Re: Emuparadise Shuts Up Shop

Agreed.

Nintendo should be able to bang out these older games at a rate of knots by now. It’s ridiculous how slow Nintendo are at getting stuff out there.
