Re: Zzap64 Annual kickstarter now open

Re: Zzap64 Annual kickstarter now open

Got mine, it looks fantastic but I've not had time to read it through. I will be posting a YouTube video (without spoiling the cover). Really happy to have been involved too, writing under my old pseudonym of Professor Brian Strain (aka The Mighty Brian). Lucky duck :) That would've been my dream j...

Re: RS-07 Pro

Must admit i LOVE mono Gameboy games so i'm looking forward to that, i have an e...

Re: RS-07 Pro

Pre-ordered one ! Should be with me next week so i'll let you know what its like. Watched a few videos for it now and Gameboy alone its sold it for me. Apparently the next firmware will allow you to have MAME (As the handheld RS-97 was the same, eg came out without MAME then was added) Just have to...

Re: RS-07 Pro

^Hmmm thanks for the post My biggest thing is i love the way its in that 'Grandstand' 80's type housing as like i say there was that other guy trying to do that but its just not happened for ages. From that video it 'looks' okay but what put me off was despite 1000's of games for NES, Gameboy etc w...

Re: RS-07 Pro

I had the original RS 07, just got rid of it last week, looks like the Pro is the same thing but in an arcade machine format, and roughly double the price. Its looks like it has the same firmware as the presentation of the emulators is the same, and that had to be completely scrubbed and replaced wi...

Re: games where the original was best

Re: games where the original was best

As for the Outrun debate. I struggle to say which is best. The only thing that lets the original down for me is the inconsistency between courses. Some are amazing while others seem a little empty and bland. Having said that, the road routine on the original is astonishing for the time. I can't thi...

Re: Spectrum Vega Plus Poll

I actually want one now! The 12-odd protos they'll send out to placate the angry hordes will likely become worth a fortune in the near future.
