Re: Play Expo Your thoughts

Yep, we had a great time at the expo :) I would have liked to have seen more indie stuff represented in the future - aside from Llamasoft and Chompy Chomp Chomp, RGCD were the only people with independently published games available to play (afaik). I think that adding the now.play element to the ev...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 13-14 October 2012, Manches

I'd just like to say thanks to Gordon and the rest of the Replay gang for all their help this year, and also to anyone who stopped by the RGCD and OSG homebrew/indie stands in the Re.play area. Only issue we had was with regard to power - we were supplied with a power supply that was never turned on...

Re: NEO XYX Confirmed for DC

I don't fancy balancing my 40" TV on its side to play the game in its TATE mode though! :lol: I wrote to the developers and they confirmed that there will not be a 'landscape' video mode. Instead they have provided an option to play with reconfigured/rotated controls so it plays like a horizontal s...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

...and then Chiptune offering his services for the homebrew section and being taken up on his offer by RGCD. It's not really a trend I'm happy with. These are forum members who lack credibility for me... Um, I'm sorry - but just to clarify - I offered Chiptune (if he was interested - which he clear...

Re: Home Brew Section

I would LOVE to contribute to the indie section. I used to write articles for a music mag called knowledge many years back so am no stranger to having my gibberish printed. Also I have no life so play ever single indie title on xbox and pc I can get my grubby mitts on. Hey ChipTune - if you are loo...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've got a beta copy of the PC version of the cancelled English Wiiware 'La Mulana' here. I'm both really surprised and happy that it's actually better than the original MSX-apeing free version that came out a few years back. It's due for public release next month, so we've got a bit of time left to...

Re: New free PC shooter

The best free PC shmup I've played for a while has to be Time Extended: Extend or Die (www.rgcd.co.uk/2012/06/time-extended-pc.html).

Innovative design, authentic 1990's coin-op visuals and some hardcore boss designs really make this stand out from the crowd.

Re: Home Brew Section

Maybe we get someone else helping Jason with the systems he doesn't have access to if time is an issue. Like I said, it's all plans at this points. I'd love to help. Jason and I know each other through RGCD, have worked togther before and I'm sure he can vouch for me having a good eye for suitable ...

Re: new c64 game

Hello peeps - James/Stylus from RGCD here. We're working with Psytronik on this one - and we'll be selling the cart (with them handling digital/tape/disk versions). I can understand that people will be interested in the convenience of the cart version for real C64's, but this does have a downside ov...
