Re: Augmentinel

This is intriguing. Sentinel is one of my old favourites, such an absorbing (excuse the pun) game.

Re: From The Forum: 196

Lol the mini craze is going nuts- how small is a mini PCE going to be though?! Great system, any number of great arcade ports could be on it, licensing permitting. R-Type Outrun and Streetfighter II the obvious ones. Would hope to see a few unique PCE titles on it though. I loved Chan & Chan! So man...

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

Lol the worlds going mini crazy!

But a great machine(s) so depending on titles could be excellent. But the mind boggles at how mini the PCE can get!

Re: Minor or lesser known Arcade Coin-Ops you really liked

I love 80s arcaders probably more than any other gaming, many of these mentioned I'd never heard of! Will have to do some research and give them a go. Not so much obscure, but 'esser well known' games for want of a better term I enjoyed were Jungler , Tutankham , Targ, Uni Wars, Astro Invader/Kamaka...

Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

Yep, you now get the keyring too! I did sign up, and got an earlybird special, which astounded me. Someone must have cancelled and I signed up at the exact right time as there was one sitting there. For good measure I decided to go and get the 2019 Crash annual, seeing I hadn't opted to buy the sec...

Re: Cancel Subscription

Very twilight zone! But pleased you're staying on to share in the upcoming #200!!!!

I do struggle with some small printing, but as most don't I know that's something I have to find a solution for, and there are ways around old fart syndrome eyesight! :lol:

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Yeah in NZ they started at 179.95 local dollars, which I had preordered at- then cancelled. Since then they have dropped down to $99, which is about 50quid equivalent. I would want to spend about 50-70 local, so we will keep an eye on sales and local auctions

Re: Mega Drive Mini

Sounds like everything is being done right, fingers crossed. This would be a great pickup now I think, providing local price is right

Re: Cancel Subscription

Fair enough. It's understandable you would cancel a magazine you cannot read, there is little point in getting it. Personally I struggle as well with some fonts and colours- but assume I am in a minority and don't expect a magazine to change for me- if it was a problem with the majority, the majorit...

Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

Been looking at this. Loved the first annuals, and they are great quality, great value. Fusion books kickstarters are the ones I trust 110%. Only reason I've been arguing with myself is due to having the other Zzap 64 and Crash Annuals, and wondering how much space I can use for these on the booksh...

Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

And thanks back! I was deciding whether to buy the new one, if I needed another Zzap 64 annual and of course, I think it's a treat I won't pass up so appreciate the reminder! But yes, I remember jumping on board for first the book on Oli Freys superb art, then the Crash annual, and a few books like ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

So this PS1 classic was a great idea, just poorly implemented. The emulation, whilst not as poor as some people have described, is not as good as it should have been and in the inclusion of some PAL versions at 50Hz is simply not good enough. Do I regret paying full price at launch? Absolutely. But...

Re: Mega Drive Mini

I'm normally a little bit against modding this kind of thing because if you want an unofficial thing you might as well go for a Raspberry Pi. But in the case of the Playstation one all you're really doing is fixing the mistakes Sony made. Yeah, I'm the same. This Megadrive looks good enough to keep...
