  1. It was a really moving service. Chris Wilkins gave a fantastic speech. Beautifully done. The gentleman in the chair was Roger, unfortunately.
  2. I enjoyed Dragon Quest. The battles were a bit crap, but I loved the characters and the story. I did play it through to completion (100 hours), but couldn’t bring myself to continue playing through the epilogue.
  3. What a great find. I recently refurbished my father's late 1999 / 2000 Walkman and purchased a nice little Sanyo micro hi-fi with CD and tape player and have started to get back into collecting cassette tapes. As a child I have memories of tapes sounding awful with loads of hiss and poor audio quality. Looking back, I think that's because a lot of my music was copied. I've been pleasantly surprised with how good the audio is on the majority of the tapes I've picked up and I'd struggle to tell if the audio wasn't coming from a CD. I love how tactile a tape is, and the clunk of placing it in a tape deck isn't a million miles away from the feeling you get from inserting a games cartridge into a SNES or Megadrive. I also really like the inlays, and seeing how the design team have taken the content from a 12" sleeve and have attempted to get it to fit into a cassette box. Enjoy!
  4. It makes me sad reading posts where people say their Nexts are sat in their boxes. Mine has been permanently set up since it arrived. I love the ease of accessing the Spectrum back catalogue, tinkering with Next utils such as Next Launcher and playing Next games such as Delta’s Shadow and Treasure Hunters. I’m still puzzled as to why the same hardware designs weren’t used for the second Kickstarter though.
  5. As a follow-up to this thread - I've dug out my 2004 DVD and will send it over to nevsan once I have his postal address.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. With the points I had it only cost me 18p.
  7. Agreed. I have the Konami arcade PCB and it has a JASRAC sticker on it. I looked into it several years ago and they’re a music licensing company or something like that.
  8. That looks superb. Did you do this yourself or send it away to be modded?
  9. I've been a subscriber of Amiga Addict since issue two, and it's been great to see it evolve. The first few issues were mainly retrospective in content, but it's really starting to cover a lot of current Amiga stuff now, with some of the articles getting quite technical, which is what interests me. I was tempted with Zzap Amiga, but already subscribe to Amiga Addict, Amiga Future, Retro Gamer and Crash. I can't justify yet another subscription.
  10. I watched this last night and now feel I need a Mister in my life. With arcade machines and PCBs becoming increasingly unreliable as they age this really interests me. Are there any U.K. stockists? The link to a stockist in the first post is overseas (unless I’m missing something). I don’t want to get hammered for Brexit inflicted import duty. Thank you.
  11. Thanks Sean and Mike for your helpful responses. @SeanR I did look at that device previously, but when you go to check out it says it’s out of stock. @mikejenkins this looks perfect and even more so with a recommendation. I’ve just ordered it. Thanks both!
  12. Evening all, The audio output on my OSSC has died so I’m trying to get around the issue by pumping the audio out from the SCART lead before it gets to the device. Has anyone here used the below? I want to plug the Saturn SCART into female connector and the male connector would go into the OSSC. I’d then take the L and R audio and put it through my sound bar. I see that this also has a switch on it. Any idea what this does? If no one has used one of these I’ll ask the seller. I thought someone here would have a better idea as to whether these are any good or not. Many thanks!
  13. I see Netflix have a new series called “High Score” available. I’ve not watched it yet, but it’s getting very mixed reviews. Not retro gaming related, but it’ll likely interest many of you here is “Inside Bill’s Brain”; a three part Netflix series about Bill Gates. It’s a good mix of covering the past and what he’s doing now. I really, really enjoyed it.
  14. It's the Final Fantasy games for me. The random battles suck any kind of enjoyment out of the series. I'm not against a good RPG. I've sunk countless hours into Secret of Mana and am almost 60 hours into the latest Dragon Quest on the Switch. It's just random battles I fail to get any fun from at all.
  15. I thought the same. If the date wasn’t right I’d think it was an April fool. How can you play anything on something that small?
