For me it was that I have known lots of retro gamers who go on and on about ''oh if your not playing the 60hz versions your not really playing the game right etc'' I dont really like this view as I dont like belittling people for what they have, but I just want to see the difference. I havent really played it much yet, life has got in the way so far lol

Today I used a CEX voucher I got from selling loads of low-value stuff to them to buy the last 2 ps2 racing games I want physical copies of for my collection rather than just emulating them; Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Enthusia: Professional Racing. Once they turn up i'm done and i'll take some pics at some point.

I have the cart for that somewhere. It's really good. The boss fights are pretty cool.

Here's something fun; what if the original DK character design was used in Donkey Kong Country?



Sadly just a video edit and not a rom hack, all the same I'm astounded at how well done this is! Fascinating little insight into an alternate timeline.

I got a little orange memory cover for the NTSC N64 it's a small thing but it lets me know the import machine on site which is helpful

I've been finally digging into my racing collection, getting stuck into GT Cube and the original Burnout.

Have you got Burnouts Point of Impact and Takedown?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I've got all of them on various formats, even stuff like Dominator on PS2. I keep meaning to take some pics of my retro racing collection as its grown over the last few months.

Awesome. PoI is a massive improvement on the original but Takedown is just plain immense. Easily in my top 20 games of all-time.

Had a bit of a peruse of your Instagram. Some very nice stuff. Not sure I've heard of Final Zone before, but it looks awesome.

Thanks BAKA Final Zone is a pretty awesome game but yeah not that well heard of , it never came out in europe and had a diffrent name in Japan... the studio that made it went on to make a lot of the Tales of ........ games for Namco.

So...anyone play Zool?

I suspect it's not an immensely compelling playthrough in 2018 but holy gooseberry fool I forgot how good the soundtrack is





I had it on the Acorn Archimedes of all things. It was an event whenever I could get the game working, I didn't understand how the anti-piracy wheel worked:

Yes, it's one of my sister-sold-all-my-games ,I got it ex rental for £3 back in the day based solely on the cartridge I think. It was brilliant. Also rock hard. I remember the giant bumblebee and "Jimmy the killer guitar" in the music world. I'll pick it up again soon as my local shop has it fairly often.

Speaking of which they had Gynoug recently for just £14 boxed, if only I could get there in my current state.
