That was a good review! Keep 'em coming!
Cheers :) . Got a few more things lined up that I'll be posting soon and there should be some new reviews in there.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Also updated with another couple of posts, including a look at Westworld and another candidate for Crap Game Corner. Bloody hell, am I spoiling you!

if it pleases, I've decided to revive the blog ('Everthing But The Games) - meant to be about gaming culture, but few hardware and game reviews will slip in from time to time.

first newer post up - little bit on Amstrad GX4000.

Hi bloggers...

First off, I've totally revamped my website, and posted new content on my blog. What I'd like to do is get a bit of a link share going, kind of like New-tabs.

Basically, anyone who doesn't run a porn site can link to me, and I link to you. Anyone wants to, please PM me (my visiting here has been sporadic at best recently thanks to work and other stuff going on) and we'll get it set up ASAP. My website is at http://www.fishsta.co.uk

In other news, latest reviews on my retro blog are:

Ghosts 'n' Goblins
Sunset Riders
Rock 'n' Roll Racing (SNES)

The first part of my look (or rather memories) of the Original Trilogy of the Star Wars saga, starting with Episode IV: A New Hope

I've just started a new blog entitled The 100k Challenge

The premise is to focus on 40 arcade games, a mixture of bona fide classics, personal favourites and a few more leftfield choices. The aim is to gradually improve at these titles until I can achieve a high score of 100,000 points or more on each. I'll be sharing my progress with pictures, gameplay videos, tips and occasional diversions on to related (and unrelated) topics.

Check it out here: http://witchfinder-100k.blogspot.com :)
