Hey, thought I should introduce myself too.

Name: James Monkman
DOB: 17/11/1978

Retro gaming history:

First computer was a BBC, then got a Spectrum 128 +2 about three years later. Was given an Atari STFM in the late 80's, then when Atari went tits-up I bought an Amiga 1200 (and later won a CD32 in a magazine compo). Finally, when Commodore was bought out I decided that I'd had enough of buying computers only for the supporting companies to go bust a year or so later, so I flogged the whole lot at a boot sale and 'upgraded' to a PC in 1998.

Started using emulation as soon as the first stable versions of MAME and PacifiST came out (remember the days when MAME could only emulate really basic coin-ups?), and now I have a custom built Shuttle PC that plugs into my widescreen telly just for playing sega/snes/mame roms. I also use it to emulate an STE (because it looks so much nicer on a TV than on a monitor).

I also have a (faulty) snes that I found in a skip. The scart output doesn't work (fades to black within a few seconds of plugging in), so I tend to just stick to using my Shuttle now. And also a GBA with flashcart for playing homebrew stuff on the go.

All-Time Favourite Games:

Uridium 2 (A1200), Chaos Engine (CD32 - the definitive version!), The Metal Slug series (MAME), Alien Breed SE & 2 (A1200), Flashback (A1200), Oids (Atari STE), Chu Chu Rocket (Atari STE), Pooz (Atari STE) and many more...

Interests:

Aside from playing old 16-bit games, I'm also a little-known funk/soul/hip hop/beats DJ based in Exeter (that's where the name Heavy Stylus comes from, BTW). If that's your bag you can download one of my mixes from www.therootdown.co.uk/media/. I've got a out of date blog on www.myspace.com/heavystylus and I've just registered a new site - www.rgcd.co.uk (but there's nothing there yet).

[Plug] RGCD is a new retro gaming CD-R based discmag project that I've just started working on. More news will be posted on it here soon. [/Plug]

Aside from that, I'm also into old sci-fi movies, blaxploitation films and kitsch/retro art, toy robots and Red Stripe.

Nice to meet you all!

James/Stylus

Hi

Stefan, living in Sweden. 35 years old, have played video games since the early 80:ies. Then mainly arcade, Atari 2600, Colecovision and Game & Watch (little later Spectrum/C-64), now all kind of stuff. But I prefer Sega (Saturn is the greatest game system ever), but for the moment I also highly enjoy "news" as Xbox 360:s live arcade selection and I think PSP is a great (not least as a retro console). Love shooters and music/rythm games (so besides Saturn, and Dreamcast in periods, i most often play PS2). Have also bought a nice little (well...) PCE GT last month so I hope to have time and money to explore the hu card-world of PCE next year.

Think I am more of a retro gamer than a "collector" (always have to sell stuff to get money for new games), but I love to find nice games and other stuff from/related to Treasure. So if you have nice Treasure stuff for sale you know where to fint me :wink:

I think I am a middle man (=coward) :wink: i first had a Spectrum (and remember how expencive it was to upgrade it from 16 to 48 K) so I will never forget Knight Lore, Underwurld etc. But there was a reason I sold it and buy a C-64; a lot of great games there. Maybe I like the Speccy better as a consol, but the C-64 games more (what kind of answer was that... :oops: ).

Have still not play Amstrad. But maybe I would check it up!
