Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

Not yet.

I tend to go with a "2 generations ago" marker for a system being retro or not. The PS3 is only 1 gen old, and had titles released as recently as September (FIFA 19).

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

After a couple of months not being used, my Switch is now back in action thanks to Taiko No Tatsujin!

OK, I'm knackered after about 15 minutes using the drum peripheral, but still, it's bloody good fun.

Re: 8/16/32bit Youtube channel thing...

My channel is still alive!

There have been a few new videos over the last few months, including ones on Mystical Ninja for the N64, and Tetris for the Game Boy.

Enjoy!

Re: Spectrum Vega Plus Poll

They appear to look very much like the prototypes.

On a video posted to Youtube, the "lucky" owner lists the faults with the machine and it's lack of packaging/instructions/etc.

I'll be very surprised if more than a dozen end up in the wild.

Re: Is this forum going down hill?

I've been away from posting on here for just about a year.... and not much appears to have changed. Posts are seemingly being made at a slightly slower rate, but it seems to me that it is business as usual. Where have you been for 12months?prison?Round the world expedition? Nah. Just got a bit bored.
