Retrogaming Sites Section

Post by CodyJarrett » Sat Jun 24, 2006 6:24 am

Are there any plans to include a wider variety of websites in the \"Retrogaming Sites\" section at the back of the magazine?

This is the second issue in which Lemon Amiga has appeared and World of Spectrum will be familiar to most retrogamers. It would perhaps be more beneficial to include a less telescopic viewpoint on individual machines and also feature less well-known sites.

I'm aiming to look into this now.

If there are any sites you feel deserve a mention please let me know.

Here's a quick list of Amiga sites worth mentioning:

I'm involved in the following sites, so sorry for the self-promotion!

http://hol.abime.net - Database of Amiga games
http://eab.abime.net - Long-running forum
http://apov.abime.net - free PDF magazine (only two issues so far though)
http://agtw.abime.net - Amiga Games That Weren't

Two excellent hardcore Amiga user sites and forums:

http://www.amiga.org
http://www.amigaworld.net

And more:

http://gbamiga.elowar.com/ - Gamebase Amiga
http://www.exotica.org.uk/ - Game info and the UnExotica music archive
http://www.aminet.net/ - Huge collection of shareware and freeware
http://www.whdload.de/ - The home of hard disk installers
http://www.softpres.org/ - The Software Preservation Society (was the Classic Amiga Preservation Society)
http://www.amigamemo.com/ - Game site with lots of photos
http://www.angusm.demon.co.uk/AGDB/AGDB.html - many reviews of Amiga games

And many more which I've forgotten...

Ooohhh.... Maybe this could be a sticky? Where people recomend websites, Darran has a look at them, and if they're good, they can go in the mag?

Get a kind of momentum going, with regards to nifty sites?

That post is excellent with sig images turned off, you just recommended a black line :)

I assume it was the Sega-16 site though, if so, seconded.

I would - but I'm far to busy enjoying the 8bit reviews and resources on:

www.Oldschool-Gaming.com

And downloading 8bit games, demos and tools from:

www.Cosine.org.uk

And viewing slightly scary stuff on:

www.Cosine.org.uk/TMR

If we are plugging our own sites, how about this one?

There should be another update in a month or so as I kindly received some new scans and info from Merman.

How about one of the mods (Craig 8) ) updating the first post with the urls/links to save us going through the individual posts (like in the top 100)?

Pretty Please :D
