Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

Emuparadise was the only clean romsite, a lot of these other sites and torrents where full of viruses. Also Emuparadise was the only site to my knowledge that had complete rim sets fully working with all betas, English translations etc. Err, that's bollocks. There are other nice clean sites out the...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I'm using my Switch more than ever, there's so much in the store right now, and some at bargain prices. I picked up a game for 89p last night! I'd have passed it by from the initial appearance, but the price tempted me in, turns out its a puzzle game right up my street.

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

Tbh, this used to be a routine thing for them, they were always the ones to hunt down and issue cease and desists in the past. It's only in recent years they stopped doing it. As long as they're offering a legit way to play the games, it's fair enough. I do wish they had some sort of ROM service of ...

Re: Need your advice on iOS emulation

The first question would be, what system(s) do you want to emulate, since this can change how you approach it. For example, if you install Spectaculator (a ZX Spectrum emulator), then it has games that come with it, and more can be added via the app itself. Other emulators may require some tinkering...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

You will get it. I stalled a few times, and pulling away was hard. It's the change in car, small things get in the way.give it a few months and you won't even be thinking about the gears, it becomes instinct. You'll get used to the different power to weight ratio. Remember the first time you used a ...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The game industry has never considered it much at all. The old companies were just out to make a quick buck, and that has continued. Few seem to make much effort to cash in on their back catalogue. Preservation has always been down to us.

Re: games where the original was best

I'll swear Afterburner, Outrun and Space Harrier were only 50p a go in my local arcade. 10p for the really old games, 20p for the new stuff in standard cabs, then the big moving cabs were 50p. £1 would give you 3 credits on the big games.

Re: The first games you completed.

I think the first game I ever completed was Back to the Future on the ZX Spectrum. I remember being reaally pleased with myself until it dawned on me how easy the game actually was. I'm more surprised that you wanted to complete it rather than the fact it was easy, it's such a terrible game. I don'...

Re: The first games you completed.

Grail on the Oric 1 is the first I remember, mostly because I then realised it wasn't very good at randomly generating levels, so it was always the same the first time it was loaded and once you knew, it could be completed within a couple of moves. Subsequent games took longer, being more random. Wh...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

What are everyone's thoughts on games that require a download to play, even if you've bought the cart? I picked up LA Noire the other weekend. Its ok, though interrogations are hit and miss as you've no idea what's going to be said. I'm happy enough to have bought the cart in this case, as it was th...

Re: Spectrum Vega Plus Poll

At the end of the day it's a censored cheap console that isn't even officially Sinclair. 10 quid worth that people were ripped off 100 for. And a poor quality cheap handheld at that. May as well get a second hand DS Lite, run speccy emulator for a better experience and have a really nice meal out w...

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

My main memeoris of the cpc464 were the little rituals I felt necessary to make certain games load without crashing and the absolute revelation it was when I got a Master System and instant access carts! Should have got an Atari, C64 or Spectrum, you could have experienced that much earlier. As alw...
