I have a lot of these in my Spectrum collection, I always loved them as a kid, and they still look cool now

Re: Hardy Boys Mysteries

I have never seen it, the only time I heard about it when I was younger was in 'The Goonies'

It looks great, I would add a boarder around the screen to hide the plastic of the tv

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Arcade 1up Street Fighter 2 machine, it is awesome, love it. I will probably upgrade the joysticks at some point to SANWA ones but it is a great bit of kit.

Re: From The Forum: 198

For me it will be Castlevania, I have always wanted to play that version and this will be the perfect opportunity.

Re: PS3 - retro??

I got a PS3, 80gb fat, boxed with 2 controllers and 53 games for £40 from the car boot sale last year, only played it once. They are worth picking up cheap if you can get one. I prefer the 360 though

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

My PS1 Classic is now hacked with BleemSync 1.1 and now has over 80 games on it, it is harder and takes a lot longer to hack then the NES/SNES Mini's but totally worth it. I have been playing Castlevania SOTN on it and it is great.

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Kung-Fu Master

Kung-Fu Master is one of my all time favourite arcade games, fantastic memories of plying this when i was younger in the arcades.
I have the NES version and it is a great port.

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

That is awesome news, I have a Turbo Grafx console and a PC Engine GT hand held and they are great, I also have the Krikkzz Everdrive for it. Hopefully the emulation is spot on and we can add more games to it.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The Nintendo Direct at E3 was good, lots of stuff to look forward too. Still can't believe that they do not have a new Mario Kart yet
