  1. Yeah it's ridiculous. Tried to buy God Of War Collection recently, fuckers want 35 - 50 quid for it.
  2. That's very old. My nan had one new back somewhere between 1979-1985 (not sure of the exact year). Great picture for back then, but when folks here say Trinitron, I think they mean late 80s-early 2000s.
  3. Vectrex. I've wanted one since I gazed at them in Argos catalogues in the early eighties. Almost bought one of them a few times on Ebay, but thankfully always been outbid.
  4. The Conduit- Wii. Generic shooter and enemies aside, it certainly stretches the Wii.
  5. Make it really useless and run MorphOS on it!
  6. I both agree and disagree with this statement. As a DC fan, I think it would be great to have a portable mini. The DC looks great on a VGA screen but would it look so good on an ARM-based SOC system? The DC hardware really pops in Vga. The library is good but many of it's hits have been released on later generation consoles. Regarding the modding and hacking; there's no need for PSU replacements or GD-emus, unless you want an ideal setup. The HDMI thing is a problem if you have no older PC monitors or cheaper TV brands LCDs, I suppose. Composite on a 4k tv p
  7. That's pretty good, but Notaz did this on the Openpandora in 2015! He also did Diablo 2 and Starcraft: https://www.giantpockets.com/diablo-ii-running-on-open-pandora/
  8. Rip 'em to memory card with CFW and put them on the shelf.
  9. I've always loved Mr Do! I first played it in The Trading Post in Dartford (local arcade/pool hall/tattoo parlour) in '82 or '83. It's one of two games I pirated on my modded Wii (and that's only because it was a Japanese limited release). I'm still not amazing at it, but I love the crisp candy colour gfx and amazing arcade/fairground sounds. Pure class.
  10. @carleton, @ScouserInExile Yeah, same thing - I had a 1541, Trilogic Expert Cartridge and Makro Assembler cartridge, Koala pad. Still feel a bit panicky and nauseous if I think about it.
  11. Lorf: yeah, I'm well aware of Scratch and Python but I want to give them something initially with low expectations and utter immediacy and not multiple layers of stuff (boot up, login screens, start scratch etc.) Doing stuff in scratch is more rewarding visually, but I want some very simple interaction and I think the limits of 8 bit are are good place to start (if only to understand the unglamorous and unforgiving nature of it).
