    The C64 Mini

    By the looks of things, it’s so you can use the joystick. Some games were programmed to use port 1 for the joystick whilst others used port 2. I havent used a C64 mini yet but I’m guessing that it can’t tell the ports apart because they are USB ports?

    Retro Asylum 182: Worms

    Cool, I've updated the MP3 so hopefully it will sound ok now. I'll try to get my hands on a NeGcon as I'm a big fan of the Wipeout games.
