Re: 8th gen systems.

I live in London. I have 50 meg broadband. It works well. So for me the Xbox1 is fab. It has come along a lot in the last couple of years. So now it is a great machine. Backwards compatibility means that a lot of the old games from 360 are playable on the 1. Though the caveat is the need for the onl...

Re: Shopping Notes

I played the demo of contra on the switch today and I have to say I really thought it was fun. Well worth picking up for $5, whatever price it is, that is what it is worth. It is a not a premier title. Oh and lugis mansion 3 was a lot of fun. My pal came around and we played couch co op. It was awes...

Re: 2019/10/16: Atari XEGS: Asteroids, Getaway!

Thanks, very interesting. I have always been a huge Atari fan. At the end of the Jaguar era that was it for the brand I loved. Always good to read about Asteroids. Probably my fave early atari game. It was good on the 800sl a predecessor of the XE. I have not played Getaway but it looks great. Also ...

Re: Alien Vs Predator (arcade)

I have played it and it is very good. As arcade games go that is. Not heard of the Snes/Nes version. Though it was a system seller on the superior Atari Jaguar. For the time it had amazing graphics. Not that playable due to the fact it was too hard.

Re: Nu Atari news.

This console never had a chance. Just seems like a few peeps taking a console that people have fond memories of, say you’re going to make an updated console with no real plan, Kickstarter and pre-order people out the wazoo, stop paying bills with all that money you collected, and then shut down all...

Re: Atari release board pictures and new streaming service!!

Still not sold on Atari VCS, but it nice that something new has been announced despite the radio silence before it launch in 2 month! Nintendo. It is radio silence and then something turns up.
