Re: Trademark Trolling by King Games?

I've been following this story for the past couple of weeks and it is beyond belief how a) this can be allowed to happen, and b) how little interest there seems to be in this case from people in general. Twitter hasn't responded like I hoped it would, and there doesn't seem to be a great deal of int...

Re: Interactive Retro Games Quiz

10! the quiz did remind me of the Teleng i fixed for a mate a little while back! Class bit of kit that! I put the Teleng in because it was the first console I ever owned (aged 12). It had quite nice analogue/digital controllers and these really chunky cartridges (with mostly copies of Atari 2600 ga...

Re: Interactive Retro Games Quiz

Thanks for the comments - really appreciate the feedback. Couple of responses: being honest, I think it's a touch too slow myself. I will create a faster version for the next version, with less waiting around. I also agree that the drag and drop faces look a bit silly, but I think that's more of a '...

Interactive Retro Games Quiz

I just made an interactive retro games quiz - twenty questions, with some cool drag and drop elements. To pass you've got to get all twenty right. Only retro games boffins need apply :wink: Check it out here: http://www.puremachinecode.co.uk/quiz/ or click the image below... http://www.puremachineco...

Thanks to everyone who came down, and especially those who took part in the tournament, eventually won by Danny Parker.

Re: Pure Machine Code Worms Tourny 31st March - Manchester

Nice and busy last night, but I'm wondering - if it's regularly going to be as busy as that, is there's any mileage in getting more machines (which may involve a bit of moving stuff around)? I've got an old 14" telly that I think still works, and could bring that and a console to the next one if ne...

Re: Pure Machine Code Worms Tourny 31st March - Manchester

Photos of Thurs night now available at: http://www.puremachinecode.co.uk/blog/ Next month we're having a SNES Bomberman tournament, but I've yet to work out the format. When I do I'll be posting more details up here and on the blog. It's on 28th April by the way. Best, Paul paul@puremachinecode.co.uk

If you bring it to the next event I'll set it up for you. Is it an unmodified Xbox?

Re: Pure Machine Code - Manchester - Thursday 27th January

Thanks for the kind comments about Thursday night. Personally I enjoyed it immensely, predominantly because I got the chance to talk to more people (due to there being no quiz). I put the photos up on the PMC blog - http://www.puremachinecode.co.uk/blog/ Plus, we've already set the date for the next...

Re: Pure Machine Code - Manchester - Thursday 27th January

Hi, Sorry, I meant to post something about this earlier. Same kind of thing as last time, but on the big screen we're going to be showing old Gamesmasters and retro game related stuff. I think we're not setting up the PCs this time, opting instead to add more consoles. We might even add the PC Engin...
