I've just set a HxC floppy emulator up on one of my Atari STs (It's a device that allows you to put disk images, or ROMZ to you console spammers, on an SD card and play them on a real ST) so I've been reminiscing: IK+, Bubble Bobble, Super Sprint. So happy. :D

Driver on the PS1 & Pilotwings SNES, am really enjoying both. Not played them for ages, and getting that great feeling just like an old friend saying hello :D

Currently interchanging between Phantasy Star 4 on the MD and Shining Force 2 on the PC (Sega Megadrive Classics Collection Volume 4).
I think im permanently living in the past...surely there is no shame in that?

Since it's now whdownoadable, I've started re-playing Player Manager on the Amiga after a lot of time. And after a lot of time it's still a fantastic and compelling football game.

And I'm completing again a couple of other Miggy games, Lamborghini American Challenge and Superfrog 8)

Yup, it's awesome fun. How far have you got into it? The opening is a bit ho-hum, but it gets better the longer you play.

Well, now that you mention it, not that far. Maybe its the ho -hum bit I am experiencing. I shall give it another crack....whenever I do this though, I always feel the game owes me one. Cheers :D
