I would second Dr Bob's sugg. about atariage, however would appear that dr bob gave an impression that it was all about Atari

it isn't, there are quiet a few forums discussing other flavours of retro gaming and 'puting outside atari on atariage...as well as have a modern gaming section ie dross like 360, xbox, wii, ps3 etc

It's a good site however, most of the peeps there are americans and i not sure how they will take to british/english banter

It is mainly Master System but I will sway over to other systems now and again..

Hope some of you can take a look 8)
Are you the one with the huge Master System collection from Issue 44?

I notice the best Amiga site hasn't been mentioned here yet so here goes:

http://www.abime.net - Fantastic site which contains the superb forum the English Amiga Board - http://eab.abime.net - essential magazine resource featuring loads of scans, the Amiga Magazine Rack - http://amr.abime.net - and mammoth games database the Hall of Light -http://hol.abime.net - amongst other things.

Oh, and don't forget to check out our very own fanzine-type thing, Amiga Point of View - http://apov.abime.net - a superbly put together mag, with issue three finally almost here after four years in the making.

Dunno if it's been posted on here before but it seems interesting...

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this here but here is my store's site: http://www.risingstuff.com

There's actually a fair amount of information there that can't be found in other places since we play test games that we can't find out information on anywhere else online. Lots of info on obscure Famicom titles and other systems.
Retro Games at Good Prices: Rising Stuff
We have Famicom, Famicom Disk System, Neo Geo, PC-FX, Playdia, and lots more!

Just over a week ago I started my very own gaming blog:

http://mattyongames.wordpress.com/

I decided to cover indie games of the past and more obscure titles that are neglected in favour of more mainstream and better-remembered stuff. I started with a look at games inspired by Jet Set Willy (from contemporaries to much-later "tribute" titles) and I'm probably going to do strategy games next. I've also some sort of plan about doing all the "Assassins" freeware/shareware disks from the Amiga at the rate of one per week.

Another blog, but this one is all about Lemmings and the various ports, so funnily enough its called Lemmings Ports!

I'm currently adding more info and pictures and eventually when i get all the originals myself I will be adding better box and media scans, if anyone has any pictures, levels, info that I've missed please feel free to let me know.

Hope you like the site;;

An excellent site!
One thing I did notice though, in the list of ports for the original Lemmings game, you list PC (Windows 95), but said port was actually a 16-bit port and works with Windows 3.1, therefore shouldn't it be PC (Windows 3.1)?

Sorry about that!

Don't apologise, any errors spotted always appreciated...I'll list it as PC (Windows) as it states on the box as 'Lemmings For Windows'
Thanks for the compliment as well!
