My Game & Watch website

Post by gamepopper101 » Mon Dec 01, 2008 4:26 pm

I made a website dedicated to the Nintendo Game & Watch which I made almost a year ago and have been updating it since. I know it ain't aesthetically/visually great but I have put alot of work into it and did alot of research so it has a load of information about the Game & Watch, Appearances in the media and other well known places and I have gameplay footage for almost all 59 G&W games (I think I was missing footage for 3 of them).

So have a look around and tell me what you think of it?

Hmmm doesnt work in Firefox at all as theres no options on the left. In IE 7 theres no graphics showing in the side bar. Plus saying 'dont use back to navigate' is a bit weird.

The info i found seems good, just a fair bit of the navigation doesnt seem to be working or is missing

Got the same problems with the navigation here in Opera but it's because the URL is local to your machine:

Code: Select all

file:///C:/Users/Tim/Desktop/Gaming/Game%20and%20Watch/Website/Buttons/Competitors%20Button.jpg
Chances are you can see it but nobody else will on any browser.

My site has now been repaired

Post by gamepopper101 » Fri Dec 12, 2008 5:55 pm

OK I have redone all the buttons on all the pages (which is impressive because I had mock GCSEs to do). Here's the link if you want it again:

As before, give me your opinions!

I sent Darran an e-mail for ours but then I thought it might be best to post it here, too.

Gaming Insurrection - www.gaminginsurrection.com

We focus on games from our past from the NES and Super NES eras. Eventually, I would like to add in N64 and PlayStation stuff and more on the Dreamcast. We're going to do a little bit of handhelds because I think those are important (and by handhelds, I mean monochrome GB and GBA). We also love the bygone days of arcades, and we're going to do a little bit more with that in the future.

We produce very short videos on our favorite games, and we produce videos to go with some of our features such as the NES Mario piece I did last issue. My hubby provides a D&D advice column.

The site is maintained by me and I publish a printed edition as well as the site. We update every three months because that's simply how much time I have. Other than that, I do have a blog I try to update with it. It's a VERY small organization right now, but hopefully we will take off later. It's based on our point of views and, really, what I want to talk about with gaming habits. I just hope there are some gamers out there who care enough to take some time to read it.

Okay, i always feel a bit self conscious plugging my own websites but i've got a new 'un so...

RetroTat.info is a blog-powered website that is all about retro stuff that is, erm... tat! In other words, it's about things like those tatty LCD toys that play Tetris or Sudoku, collections of classic arcade or console games for current and previous gen consoles such as Midway Arcade Treasures or new games with a retro theme like Geometry Wars Galaxies and i have a pile of NES On A Chip and Megadrive On A Chip Direct to TV gaming tat to wibble on about an' all - this is an excuse to buy more of this stuff, hopefully without incurring the wrath of my partner...

The first two updates are live (the Superjoy 2, which is a NOAC device, and Midway Arcade Treasures on the Xbox) and i hope to update on what i'm hoping will be referred to as "Tat Tuesdays"... which will of course be every Friday. No, just kidding... =-)

Amstrad CPC+ / GX 4000

I think they look and play great considering its on an 8-bit machine.
Videoes of 5 games so far, take a look at
Navy Seals, Robocop 2, Burning Rubber, Pro Tennis Tour and Pang on the Amstrad GX 4000 / CPC +

I don't think anybody mentioned this website http://www.retro-sanctuary.com

EDIT: I see I'm supposed to write something about it, it just contains general features about all retro consoles, some of it's interesting some not particularly great.
