Which would be a wonderful idea for the next room-based game guided tour!

Re: The Google Stadia

I also think that physical goods "enslave" their owners into needing to allocate them physical space in their house, keeping them clean and functional (this is usually not a significant concern with digital discs, but with other goods), protecting them from loss/damage/theft when carried around.

Re: On my way to Hull for 8-bit Symphony

Was fantastic!
Absolutely worth the trip.
And as a bonus I got an autograph from both Rob Hubbard and Paul Norman!
I am looking forward to the next event.

On my way to Hull for 8-bit Symphony

Anyone attending as well?
I look forward to the music, but also to 'meeting' (ok, just seeing him in person) Paul Nornan. The Forbidden Forest series was one of my favorites on the C64, specially for the music.

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

I am tempted of buying the japanese version, if only for the difference in the presentation style. Europe/America: Know your classics. From the Golden Age of Gaming - A revolutionary console - shines again - experience a piece of history - (games list) - the glory of the past - is within your grasp ...

Re: From The Forum: 196

Wil there be a PC Engine Mini? WOW! Automatic buy for me. I am only afraid that it could be easily confused for, say, a coaster or a business card holder case?... it was already so tiny! "PC Engine Micro", perhaps? In addition to loads of classics, I hope the games will include the exclusive version...

Re: Back to 80’s vs 90’s dual feature

Actually, to make the feature more flexible, one could compare the various decades (70s, 80s, 90s and 00s), maybe choosing two each time, using the perspective suggested above. Or this might be a completely new feature, to be honest. Personally, I like features where the talk is about how we were, w...

Re: Back to 80’s vs 90’s dual feature

I like the suggestion and I think it would be quite interesting. Let me add something. I would suggest to use this set up to include highlights in differences in industry trends in the 10 year time span. Topics could be the most various, taking specific examples (games, companies, people...) as refe...

Re: Font Size

Seconded. Larger text please. Also because often, when there is white font on a black background (or blue font on a black background... issue 185... aaaargh!!!), also due to the low quality of the paper, the letters get 'smeared' and the text becomes 'pixelated' and almost unreadable. I am sure it i...
