Re: Andrew Holdroyd new interview

Nice interview, thanks for posting.
Its interesting reading about the unreleased version of Wolfenstein 3D. I'd be interesting in seeing that if it ever surfaced.

Re: need HDTV advice XB1

I was in ASDA recently and they had Polaroid 40" LED tvs for £199!! 1080p too. They were being snapped up fast though.

Not sure of the spec but I would imagine a few HDMI inputs are standard.

I think the Streets of Rage series is fantastic but Final Fight had already blown me away by then!

We're getting an insight into how you like to spend your Sunday afternoons :lol:
I'll have enjoyed many of my old favourite cart based games by the time you've reholstered your BIC pen and loaded Herberts Dummy Run.

Also I think fate is against you. That was your 2600 post!

Re: What's best: Cartridge, CD-ROM...or cassette??

Reeling in a cassette tape with a pencil, or even better, a BIC pen, is one of life's greatest small-pleasures - try doing that with a cartridge - so +1 to cassettes there I think. :o Hang on a second.

Re: What's best: Cartridge, CD-ROM...or cassette??

I guess the same goes for the way CD-ROM replaced cart: no way back. :o Neo Geo CD? Tried to replace carts with CDs and pretty much failed. Also, a good argument for carts is the handheld market. Would you have a Game Gear with a tape drive? :wink: Actually, it could be rather neat if you could loa...

Yes, but you wouldn't want to have to buy a new SSD for every single game now, would you?
