I've been playing through my collection with my kids, and getting my 8yo son to write up a review of the games. That way the wife is happy because it's kinda educational ;)

It's a little hateful to have all the helpful links zeroed out and replaced by the text "Edited by a mod - please do not advertise anything until you reach 50 posts," don't you think? :(

No.

So many of these are just spammers, hit and running with one post here and every other forum they can think of. They don't care about our community and never return, usually not even responding to private messages (since their post remains, so you can always PM and ask for the link). Typically the sites they are spamming aren't great quality and fade away after a few weeks when they get bored.

For someone like yourself who has been a member for a long time, I'd take that into consideration. You clearly aren't a hit and runner.

On, and the 50 posts thing was agreed with the mag staff and added to the rules of use.

To accompany my book about Gremlin Graphics, I've created a dedicated site to document and archive as many resources and artefacts relating to the much-loved Sheffield developer and publisher I can find. I've added a plethora of never-seen-before archive material that I've collected from researching and writing the book as well as quality scans of inlays, brochures and other material found in my growing Gremlin collection.

I hope you enjoy browsing the site and would love to hear your feedback.

Hello, I'm new to the forum but been a reader of the magazine for ages, though it doesn't have much PCEngine content (my favourite console)

I've recently started a PC Engine blog and looking to get it out there, if anyone is interested the address is:

pcengineblog.wordpress.com

Link is also in my signature. Thanks

Those who enjoyed the first old RPG might give an interest in this site, Dungeon Master Forum. There are a few new dungeon clones that really give a new feeling to that old game. Check out RTC, Underworld Dreams by Adamski. New graphics, sound and story. Just finished it, absolutely amazing work.

If you liked the original Dungeon Master, you'll love this.

Great site for adding custom made achievements to many classic games, via RetroArch or specific standalone emulators. Breathes a little extra life in to your games if you've played them several hundred times and need a new challenge for them.

https://retroachievements.org

I use it all the time, so if you join up on there, look out for me 😉
