Hi guys,

Just like to introduce myself to this forum, say hi and let you know a bit about me.

I am living in Norwich UK and currently setting up a retro gaming website that incorporates sales, repairs and advice for retro gamers. I however would like your advice first.

The site is open but under construction still http://www.norwichretrogaming.co.uk

Please have a look and email me what you think of it.

Thank you ,
James

its a little fan made site for castlevania! its filled with lots of knowlege on all the games, and hosts lots of reviews and codes etc

http://castlevaniadungeon.net/

this is kind of like the tescos of the castlevania websites (its very big), what i perticuarily like about this site is the layout, and the wirdness and forein sections which talks about the lesser known changes and editions to the games, i would check this one out

Mate, you can't put links to illegal ROM sites here, please delete, not that you were to know.

Hope you don't mind a bit of self-publicising.

I've been working on a computer/console magazine database project for a few years now. I've now decided to start providing some of this information via a blog. I shall basically be providing an index of what is in each magazine with review scores (and as long as I can keep my bearings, provide an average score ala gamerankings).

I won't be retyping articles or anything like that, but maybe it would be useful for people trying to track down an elusive article or review.

There's only 13 magazines on there at the moment. I've started at 1981, so the Spectrum wasn't even born yet! But I will be featuring C+VG, Sinclair User, Crash, Zzap, Commodore User, Micro User and many others as I plow through the months.
I will add a search eventually, but it doesn't appear to work at the moment (probably because it's so new)

http://reviewsfromthepast.blogspot.com/

The reviews from the website will be compiled on this website http://reviewsfromthepast2.blogspot.com/

Comments welcome.

Not a website but some BBC footage of kids using BBCs at Blecthley park.
Quite good, focuses on programming.

Hello Friends

I am André from Portugal and I am new in the retro gamming community. I just starting My Game Boy Collection ( a dream that I had since I was 6 years old and got my first GB)

So I was wondering if you could recommend some good sites on GB, not those that only have the specs and stuff like that, but sites with games lists,info on rare items, acessories, console versions etc.

Abraço

andré

I love RGR, been listening to it for years, long before RG started.

Initially I was a bit meh, but I've grown accustomed to Shane's presentation. I miss it this year, real life has taken over and he's not had much time to record.

Forum hasn't been up to scratch since the big Armchair Arcade shutdown though. Prior to that, it had quite a buzz.

Yup, give a try to DotEmu Shop, they do provide DRM-Free classic games, for instance Ishar series, Maupiti Island, Gobliiins games, Raptor Call of the Shadows, Megarce series, and way more.
