  1. Will do! Yeah, I get that there isn't the same level of interest in computer stuff these days. Also that stuff just undeniably doesn't age as well - cassettes and floppies tending to perish quicker I guess, and even the boxes and packaging weren't as durable, as they were often just cardboard rather than plastic!
  2. I am probably going to pop along to The Retro Hunter/ Neon Nights this afternoon/ evening - got half a feeling it might be popular as it was featured in RG this week! Quick question for any locals that are familiar ... does the shop have much in the way of retro computer stuff, or is it all consoles? (Looks mostly consoles from the pics in RG - which I'll be happy enough with, sure I can find some MD or PS1 stuff to keep me occupied. But it would be great if they had some home computer stuff too).
  3. The Namco place with a bowling alley? It was still there just before Covid kicked off.
  4. I'm thinking of popping down to Neon Knights tomorrow evening if anyone else is around and fancies a visit? I know we talked about doing it as a mini-meet in the other thread. It seems it's just open evenings at the weekend, anyone know if that's right? And does that mean it's not possible to visit at a time when the arcade and the shop next door are both open?
  5. Nice to see some slightly more positive coverage of a certain streaming service specialising in retro games!
  6. Do you guys think I should get this on PS4 or PC? My PC has a RTX 3060 card so should be buff enough right? (Steam doesn't have the specs up yet). But I only have a 1080p monitor right now. Will PS4 (Pro) let me play at 4K? If I play on PC, will it be closer to the PS4 or PS5 experience? Anyone know anything about this yet? Playing a From game on my 22" PC monitor will be a bit strange after I've played everything from DS1 onwards on my 65" downstairs TV. But will the presumable increase in graphics quality make up for it? Or just bite the bullet and (somehow) make this the reason I upgrade to a PS5? (or buy a better monitor for my PC?) Decisions decisions!
  7. My friends' parents who were teachers certainly took the ones from their school, when the school upgraded to PCs and Archimedes. Always used to take them home in the holidays, too.
  8. Possibly. Also, there's the fact that they'd really need to license the WHD drivers to make it a decent end-user experience. Amiga emulation using ADF files is slow and clunky. Particularly for multi disk games, where it requires you to manually switch between files. At the end of the day, I'm pretty sure that the overall reason is just that there are a myriad of ways, both technical and licensing, in which Amiga emulation is a less smooth experience than console emulation, so they decided to go 100 percent console.
  9. No ... Plenty of people have licensed kickstart so that isn't the reason.
  10. If you're going to use neoretro it should be paleoreteo and mezoretro.
  11. Somewhat about homebrew games for the Spectrum that came out in 2021? (Runs away)
  12. Over four seasons it's inevitably transitioned from being something genuinely mind-blowing (Karate Kids, 40 years later) to being something very comfortable and formulaic. But it's still very watchable, mainly due to great performances from the main cast, and Johnny and Daniel in particular. They are clearly scraping the barrel now in terms of characters to bring back - Terry was the worst baddie as his movie was the worst of the original trilogy, but I'm glad they did bring him back just for the sake of completeness.
  13. Maybe they are though? Maybe the animals in video games are avatars of real animals in another reality, like The Matrix. And when they die in our games, they die in real life.
