Re: Emulation

So basically, as it's a grey area, it's neither legal nor illegal? Its fairly black and white in legal terms. Emulation is legal, providing that it doesn't use any copyrighted code or the owners of that code have given permission to do so. A prime example is the Spectrum. Spectrum emulation usually...

Re: Emulation

I can't wait to go through this thread again later tonight!!! Loads to go on, so thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. So basically, as it's a grey area, it's neither legal nor illegal? Seems odd that the software publishers seem happy for the general public to "emulate", but hey-ho, if it ...

Re: Emulation

lol, my first computer was a Spectrum, so I hold it in high regard! Although I do think the Neo Geo was the most playable console, ever, even if it did cost an absolute fortune!!! Now, to play Metal Slug, or Samurai Showdown (why did they keep mispelling it Shodown?) would be unbelievable. So basica...

Re: Am i the only one

I just don't have the time to play games on the Xbox 360, etc, nor the money. So no, my last console was the first gen Xbox, but then my working life took over and I never got to complete Halo!!! May have to re-visit that game. To be honest, the reason I lost interest in new consoles, is because mos...

Emulation

Hi there, Since I've re-discovered retro games, a mate of mine was telling me that I can discover a whole world of retro games through an emulator, but I don't really understand what this all means. Can someone help? Basically, I have a PC, and my mate said that I could download an emulator, to play...

Re: First Game Ever Bought?

First game I bought was when I saved up to buy Uridium for the C64. The graphics for the time were unbelievable.

Thank you to the person who reminded me that Gautlet II ever existed btw.

Re: POLL: Hardcore Retrogamer or Casual Retrogamer?

I play retro games because a) they were better than the games you can get now, b) they take less time to play, c) my young boy prefers them, d) cheaper. I refuse to buy my boy a DS for example. £100 for the DS and £20-30 a game? You must be joking.

Hello

Hello there, I stumbled across this site when looking for retro games, and I hope some of you can help. Forgive me for not wanting to trawl through posts, but I am 35 and my older brother got me into gaming when he got a Commodore64, then progressed to an Amiga, and then got into consoles until the ...
