Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently playing Beneath a Steel Sky on ScummVM. It's one of those graphic adventures I had in my backlog for years but never got around to finish.

Re: Less known retro computers to discover

Yeah let's not turn this into a discussion of what 'less known' means, it was obviously subjective. Anything 80s which you think it's not commonly talked about as much as others is ok.

Less known retro computers to discover

What are in your opinion some less known retro computers of the 80s (or even older) that might be interesting to discover? I've noticed there are emulators for almost anything nowadays, and I'm thinking about trying out some niche systems such as BBC Micro, Atari 800, ORIC Tangerine, TI/99, Jupiter ...

Re: Buying CD's

Haven't bought a CD for myself for at least a decade or even more... those few which I bought since then were all presents for someone else. I had a huge collection of CD from my youth years, but honestly I barely listened to them anymore, so I have been downsizing it by selling something and giving...

Re: What Comics did you read as a kid?

I lived in Italy as a kid, and I used to read basically only local italian comics. There is a huge italian production of Disney comics, and even a bunch of duck characters were created by the italian artists (obviously not the top characters, but secondary ones such as Duck Avenger/Superduck). But t...

Re: What's Your Favorite Driving/Racing Game Ever?

"GranTurismo 6" on the Ps3 is my favourite ever.

If that doesn't count because Ps3 is not 'retro' yet, I then vote "Slick'n'Slide" in DOS.

Re: This is the worst game I've ever played

I've had my share of really bad games back in the day, but it's hard to pick the absolute worse... the reality is that whenever I stumbled upon an apparently* bad game, I just ignored it and moved on. This mostly happened because on the C64 I used to buy collection tapes from newspaper kiosks rather...

Re: Should I buy PS3 or PS4?

so i should buy ps4. Thank you I think buying a new PS4 now is the worst choice. PS4 isn't much of an improvement over PS3, some games franchises even got worse (Rock Band & Guitar Hero). The exception is if you are into Virtual Reality, then really PS3 isn't suitable. PS4 being the latest system b...

Re: Who likes retrogaming on a projector?

Hi all, getting back to this thread of mine... Recently I have tried to connect a real C64 to our projector, but the image looks blurred and the colors are incorrect. In C64 forums I have read that this kind of things happen also with LCD screens and it might be because the resolution is so low that...

Re: Too many worthwhile games?

Nice old thread... Compared to the typical retrogamer, I believe I have a small collection of games (~700 across 15 systems or so). I am definitely not a hoarder, and nowadays I get maybe 2-3 new games per year. But nevertheless I do feel like I have a long backlog of games I would like to play "ser...

Re: What was the final word in Lunar Lander games?

I would guess there are Android/iOS games which take advantage of a phone's gravitometer to control the spacecraft by turning the phone itself?
