  1. Your phone appears to have autocorrected a whole chunk of text into something that no right-minded human would ever put to screen.
  2. Would be pretty good, that. Get some Wonderswan and NGPC games on there. Trouble is, the more obscure the machine, the less likely there's a decent emu they can license.

    The Jazz Thread

    Been listening to this a lot. It's getting a re-release next month. Rap fiends know it from the Luck of Lucien sample.

    Yeah has been for weeks. Diabetes related last I heard If we lose him I'm blaming Edan.
  5. Yeah I disagree, sorry. It was a big game and it was popular. I don't think it had any impact beyond that. Film licences existed before and would have happened after.
  6. Sorry, I somehow misread that and see now you mentioned licensed games. Not sure Ghostbusters was a big turning point though. I mean there was a Star Wars game released the year before. Then there's Atarisoft stuff bringing official arcade ports. edit: also - brought credibility in whose eyes? Considering the timeline for most in this country went from 2600 to micros, who didn't see home computers as credible? 1984 was also the year of Jet Set Willy and Knight Lore. Jetpac and Atic Atac and Manic Miner the year before. Why would a good film licence suddenly make micro computers credible?
  7. If you ignore all the officially licensed games that came before it, sure.
  8. Thanks for the info. I'm not so keen on Party Monsters. Look forward to your impressions.
  9. Elvira. Are those licensed tables then? Would love to know what this is like. I absolutely loved the Elvira-themed Scared Stiff table back in the day. They had one in a pub near where I lived.

    Nice. As well as a label, Blacker Dread used to have a record shop in Brixton. There is a good documentary - Being Blacker - about him but it's not about his shop or label really, more about where he is now (or was two years ago). I have a few records on that label, my favourites being two of the albums that came out with a cast of various ragga artists - Nuclear War and Rougher Neck Fashions.
  11. You can buy a Pi pre-soldered. I still haven't put mine in which might give you an idea of how much it is required. Depends what you want to do with it I guess. TZX is a bit of a red herring on the Next as there's no control over a 'playing' tzx. eg, you can't stop the 'tape' once the first part of a multiload has loaded. TAP is the way to go really. The HDMI power issue is annoying and apparently will be one of the minor fixes in the new kickstarter. HDMI timing not being Spectrum-exact I'm not so sure about.

    Loving that video
  13. Given what these guys have managed to deliver and the seemingly infinite amount of support they offer along with the constant updates and tireless community building, it's really, really weird to suspect that they will suddenly turn crooked and disappear with everyone's money. I mean really, wtf?
  14. There's no limit though so there will be as many as are ordered. This thread is so negative

    Statik Selektah and Termanology put an album out in March which is worth anybody's time. Also, Malik B of The Roots passed away. 47
