  1. 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.

  3. 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
  4. Many years ago in my early teens I bought a book from my local bookshop. It was a proper book about videogames written by someone called Martin Amis, who I'd never heard of, and introduced by Steven Spielberg. It's part history, part reviews, part hints and tips and totally of it's time. The author wrote in a more grown up way than I was used to at the time and wrote with a passion and love for the games that enchanted the young me. He writes more about his favourite games with pages devoted to Defender while others get not much more than a paragraph. I loved this book and reread it many times
  5. Browsing through my recommendations on the Xbox One i came across this! https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/double-dragon/9mv39gfqmwl4?activetab=pivot:overviewtab Looking further into it there is a whole host of other releases:- https://arcsystemworks.com/double-dragon-kunio-kun-retro-brawler-bundle-brings-18-classic-games-to-the-west-later-this-month/ https://arcsystemworks.com/game/double-dragon-kunio-kun-retro-brawler-bundle/ - This seems to be Nintendo Switch & PS4 only! Contains DOUBLE DRAGON series
  6. So for the last four years, a sizeable team (including @Anne Summers and myself from Rllmuk) have been working on a retro game streaming platform called Antstream. It lets you play a huge catalogue of retro games, with a single subscription that you can access across multiple devices. Systems supported include everything from the earliest Arcade games through to the best home computers, through to PS1 games - and beyond! Each game on the system has been lovingly curated. We've re-mastered artwork, created control schemes that work across touch controls, keyboards and game pads, and

  8. So, I've been looking forward to this for quite some time - particularly for the amazing 1-bit art style that the game possesses. Basically, it's an RPG that revolves around your character investigating all manner of Junji Ito inspired abominations, and/or surviving the happenings around a very strange mid-80s Japanese town. I haven't got a lot to go on, as I'm going in blind and it's only just released on Steam for a crisp £11.39 , but initial impressions have been positive. There's also been a demo circulating, which you can find here: htt
  9. I know people tend to link to DF Retro videos in each game or console's dedicated thread, but here's a topic for all their miscellaneous videos that wouldn't really fit elsewhere. Today they published this video testing out four games (Quake 3 Arena, Half-Life, Unreal, and Trespasser) on a 700 MHz Pentium III with a whopping 384MB RAM, and two graphics cards: an ELSA Erazor III TNT2 Pro, and a 3dfx Voodoo 2. A lot of people seem to look back fondly on Trespasser. I never played it but my main memory of it is that CVG gave it a really negative review. (T
  10. It's time for another ZZAP! Annual, with editor Roger Kean and artist Oli Frey on board. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/47744432/zzap-64-annual-2020-lets-do-this-again Filled with reviews of the latest games, new features and interviews - including an exclusive interview with programming legend Andrew Braybrook. Perks for the campaign include new game Dragonspire, signed canvasses and ZZAP merch.
  11. Would anyone be interested in a retro game club where we choose a game a month, I reckon 16 bit era or earlier and we do a play and discussion? I’ve seen some reddit type clubs but a bit bemused we don’t have such a thing here. Who’s up for it and what shall we play this Month? I reckon emulation/og hardware choice up to you (better than having a dozen middle aged nerds all bidding on the same eBay auctions).
  12. Hi, After spending the last nine hours or so downloading and configuring Retroarch on my pc i came across an option for this:- https://retroachievements.org/ It basically adds achievements for games like you get on the xbox or ps4 but for emulated games! I know it may not be everyones cup of tea but i like things like this so i created an account and have unlocked a couple of achievements so far. If anyone else has an account or makes one and fancies adding me, my profile can be found below:- https://retroachievements.org

  14. Starting this thread cause I'm gonna sell my pal 32x on the forum. But am finding it hard to find an approximate value on ebay, many unit only versions seem to go for £110-£150, but all appear to be NTSC. So, to kick things off: Pal Sega 32X, all cables, PSU and shields: ?Price If we want to keep this thread going, or sticky it, I can put some general guidelines at the top as and when we work them out.

  16. Not sure if this is the right thread, but is there anyone here that collects the original Kenner and Palitoy Star Wars stuff? I'm working on something new for Retro Gamer and looking for someone with a sizable collection.

  21. I know we have an emulator thread, but as Retroarch becomes more and more all-encompasing I think it deserves it's own thread. https://www.libretro.com/index.php/retroarch-2/ When it works it's great, however it's very finicky. I've been trying to add some roms all morning and it just keeps freezing, going to have to reinstall I think. What's other people's experiences with it?
  22. We've just had the new issue turn up freakishly early. It's on sale next thursday. The Kings Of Donkey Kong - We quiz the high scores past and present about Nintendo's hit arcade game.
