Site updates (since there ain't a more appropriate place!)

i've just done a few site update type thingies; Oldschool Gaming was updated to add two more reviews (for Pair Logic on the MSX and Spork64 on the C64) and an interview with Dan Phillips, one of the developers behind C64 classic Armalyte . Cosine.org.uk was also updated a little, this time to add a ...

Re:

Surely everybody is forgetting that current-gen console games are not the only ones released for Christmas.

Actually, that's a typo on his part... it's meant to say "When I was a KITT" and he was assembled by the Knight Foundation. =-)

Re:

Thats pretty cool. I always wondered if it would work transferring speccy games to CD and loading them off that. i've done the same with the C64 using one of those car tape deck adaptors... =-) I wonder how many games you'd get on 1 CD? (can't remember how much time on the tape a speccy game takes ...
