  2. About time the PS5's most promising game gets its own thread. So what is Returnal? If you'd throw Housemarqe's arcade heritage, roguelikes, Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow/Live Die Repeat, Bloodborne and a pinch of P.T. in a blender, you'd get Returnal. For an overview: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/games/returnal/ Reveal trailer: Then there is this Game Awards trailer: And there is my favourite trailer, the recently released gameplay trailer that is an onslaught of particles, neon coloured bullets, massive tentacled creatures, sci-fi mystery and cool music. Watch in 4K and with good sound: More info on the PS Blog: https://blog.playstation.com/2020/12/10/returnal-launches-on-ps5-march-19-2021/ I have high hopes for this and that's also based on things I can't talk about.
  3. Champion Edition is out now: It's £25 and includes all characters released as of 14th February 2020 as well as the majority* of the game's cosmetic DLC. This version launches alongside returning Street Fighter IV boss character Seth. Launch Trailer: *Excludes the "Fighting Chance" costumes which can only be won with Fight Money and the Capcom Pro Tour DLC packs (four stages and a dozen costumes). ................... Original post: Street Fighter V! Exclusive to PS4 and PC with cross-platform play using Capcom Fighters Network IDs. Below is a google doc link of Rllmuk players and their IDs for the game (and other fighting games); please add your details and let's fight, like gentlemen!

  4. Back in the early days Coleco converted loads of unknown arcade games to their home console. Some like Donkey Kong would go on to be classics and widely ported, others have disappeared. One of my friends had a Coleco and one of those obscure ports was a dungeon crawler called Venture. Each level would start with a map of four rooms and you represented as a pixel. The challenge being that you had to get to a room without getting hit by a monster. Inside each room you had to get the treasure and leave without getting killed It was like a mini version of Beserk. I loved this and ended up getting this for my 2600. It was a surprisingly decent port. But then everyone forgot about it. Apart from one man Donnie Russell who has mad a port you can grab from here! https://sites.google.com/site/donnierussellii/my-c64-games It's pretty zippy and much more like the arcade/Coleco ports. Worth trying if like me you're one of the three people who remember this.
  5. How comes I’ve never heard of this before? Only a month away! Loved Snow Bros in the arcade, inject this shit into my veins.
  6. Indie Retro News highlighted this delight today. http://www.indieretronews.com/2022/02/tutankham-c64-port-of-tutankham-arcade.html#more https://lowcarb.itch.io/tutankham-c64 I would have loved this back in the day and playing it now reveals a pretty bang on port!

  8. PREPARE TO JIZZ YOUR PANTS.... A new AC version "GO by train !!" will be announced. The scenery of the car window that is shown on the large screen of 3 screens, you can taste driver 's mood. Interlocking smartphone application also delivered this winter!!! ps....make sure you HD for ultimate experiences!
  9. Technoan just uploaded a review of the Pandora 5S arcade stick: It's a tempting prospect. Has anyone had experience with these? It's not an Raspberry Pi-based stick, looks pretty solid. And it can be used as a standard USB arcade stick.
  10. Darren Doyle and Greyfox Books are funding their latest release on Kickstarter. After the excellent Atari 8-bit book, the new title is a personal look back at classic arcade games, with chapters based on particular genres and lots of great visuals. Having helped proofread the book it's shaping up to be another worthy addition to your retro bookshelves. Link
  11. Evening all. I am one third of a British podcast project (along with Paul Drury of Retro Gamer, and collector Richard May) that interviews the unsung heroes of the Golden Age of video arcade gaming. I thought I'd share the latest episode of The Ted Dabney Experience Podcast, as I think the subject of this month's show in particular would be of interest here from a UK perspective. We interview Andy Walker, one of the very few Brits to have developed coin-op videogames for the American market during the Golden Age. The Pit is something of a niche title, released by Centuri, but has a unique charm. In a weird turn of events, the game inspired the creation of Atari's Dig Dug (Andy goes into that story too). Do check it out here. You can also find us in all the usual podcast places. Enjoy!
  12. With a lot of chat going in the Retroarch thread i thought it was maybe time that this got it's own thread. Basically CoinOPS FW is a front end all in one emulator for just about any system emulated and is currently Windows only. You can see some of the stuff at the youtube channel here:- https://www.youtube.com/user/BS1ukNinja/videos I openly admit i am personally yet to get the thing working on my own PC but people on the forum speak very highly of it, and i can't wait to experience it myself.
  13. Not quite as crazy as the micro GG but still a surprise. https://www.theverge.com/2020/7/7/21315726/sega-astro-city-mini-arcade-cabinet-retro-price-japan
  14. Another port discovered over at http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/03/scramble-wicked-retro-shoot-em-up-gets.html#more An almost arcade perfect port to the CPC which puts a lot of the versions and clones I used to play on the C64 to shame.
  15. This is fascinating. https://retrobitch.wordpress.com/2019/02/12/pac-man-the-untold-story-of-how-we-really-played-the-game/ What causes this distinctive wear on the left hand side of old Pac-Man cabinets? Check the full artice out for answers and photos of old arcades.
  16. For anyone interested in seeing the lineup there's a full list here https://snk40th.com/ Picked this up on a whim as I love these sorts of collections, there's always a chance of finding an undiscovered gem. And....well it's interesting so far. I've played a few of the arcade games in this collection and their NES counterparts. The main draw for me was Ikari Warriors since I'd heard they'd solved the issue with the lack of a rotary stick (they've essentially made it a twin stick setup with shooting and grenades being on the triggers.) Great fun, if a little too difficult. The NES version also included....the less said about that the better. If you really want to play 8 bit Ikari I'd seek out the Amstrad and C64 version. (PAL version for the C64, the NTSC version is awful.) Athena is pretty awful in both its Arcade and NES versions. Psycho Soldier is of historic interest if only for the sampled song at the beginning but is too hard and too floaty to keep playing for more than ten minutes. Anyone else pick this up? (If you have be sure to update it and pick up the free DLC for even more games.)
  17. News from the always excellent http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/10/popeye-arcade-2018-gabriele-amores.html#more But now with the end of the year fast approaching there's another game that's been announced, but this time it's the turn of the ZX Spectrum with Gabriele Amore's arcade conversion of ' Popeye Arcade 2018 '; a new game which is hoping to win a prize during the ZX-DEV MIA Remakes competition. It's in with a chance, cast your eyes on this lovely port! I'm a big fan of the game having played it on the C64, 2600 and Amiga. Can't wait to try this.
  18. Check out this https://arcadeblogger.com/2017/01/20/centuri-aztarac-finding-the-holy-arcade-grail/ and then https://arcadeblogger.com/2017/12/08/tim-strykers-aztarac-the-final-chapter/ And here's the machine restored
  19. Other games too, including what looks like a VR Prop Cycle http://vrzone-pic.com/en/
  20. So, after a long period of just thinking about building one, I finally got the ball rolling and bought a 40" (101.6 cm) LED for the playing field. It's a cheap one, and the viewing angle on it isn't the greatest (right now it's laying slanted on a small coffee table at about a 14 degree angle, and if I just sit in front of it I do notice the far side of the screen fades a bit). I've drawn a crude sketch of the main cabinet, after measuring and double checking and triple checking I think it'll end up 23.75" (60 cm) wide and 41.7" (106 cm) long. The back box will stick out another 2" (5 cm) on both sides and the back. Not sure how tall the back box will be, as I've not decided yet on what monitor(s) to use. I also don't know yet how deep to make the cabinet, I've estimated it at around 16" (40.6 cm) in the front to 26" (66 cm) in the back. But I'm not sure how high the box will stand on actual pinball legs since I haven't gotten those yet. As soon as they are delivered I'll be buying the wood to start building. Things I already have: - 40" LED television - PC (Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 Ghz, 8 GB Ram, ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro) - Arcade buttons - iPac - 2nd Monitor for Backglass - 3rd monitor for I don't know yet - USB Speakers Things I have on order: - Pinball machine legs (+ levelers) - Coin door + Mech - Plunger Post will be updated if any progress is being made.
  21. A fascinating article by Ed Fries (formerly of Microsoft's VP of Xbox game publishing): https://edfries.wordpress.com/2017/03/22/chasing-the-first-arcade-easter-egg/ The rest of the article is about his attempts to get it working first on MAME, then on a real arcade machine. It's quite a detective story!
  22. More news from http://www.indieretronews.com/2016/12/frogger-arcade-for-c64-hokuto-force.html#more This time they've found an arcade perfect (well as close as you can get) port of Frogger in the C64. It even keeps the vertical aspect ration. Download that the link above, if you're stuck on how to add more credits it's 5 or 6 on the keyboard.
  23. Hi everyone - I'm hoping to garner some opinions on a retro gaming idea, if you would be able to help... I've got a business opportunity focused on gaming (arcade & consoles only at the moment) and one idea I've had to make it a bit more interesting to current and potential gamers is to provide a service a bit like Graze, Pact Coffee, Abel & Cole, etc. The idea is that you can go online, select which consoles you own and subscribe to a service that posts you a different game every month. You can play it and then send it back or you can keep it for an extra fee. So, if you said you had an N64, you might get Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie or Super Smash Brothers for your first 3 months. You could send a couple back and keep one, if you felt so inclined. We would never send out the same game twice and you could cancel with 30 days notice. My questions I'd like to get some opinions on are; - Would you like to get one or more games sent to you every month? - If so, would a cost of £7.99 per month, including return postage, put you off? - Have you heard of anyone else providing this service? If so, what's good and what's bad about what they do? - What would really put you off from signing up? - What would make you sign to the membership package immediately? - If there were other benefits to the subscription, such as small loyalty rewards or exclusive social events, would that be of interest? Thanks for taking the time to respond - I genuinely appreciate all the feedback, good or bad, and will respond to everyone! Mark
