Let's not start this again, it's very off topic.

Ok, this looks interesting, hadn't spotted this thread before. Looks exactly my sort of thing.


Sorry to derail again, but...

Have you seen the Armiga systems? They keep cropping up as sponsored posts on my Facebook feed. They look like a Mini NES, but for the Amiga. The more expensive version even comes with a floppy drive.

http://www.armigaproject.com/

Plays 500 and 1200 games; comes with a legal version of Workbench 1.3 and 3.1.

It's a bit expensive for me but is hugely tempting, especially as the Raspberry Pi support of the Amiga is a bit clunky (ie doesn't work via emulation station).

Really like the look of this, very intruiging. I have also never played Syndicate, much to my shame.

What the?!?! I stumbled into this thread and - blam! - I discover that there is a great new console emulating the Amiga :o :toot: . The Amiga is one of my favourite machines and I'd love to have a unit that replicated it's capabilities exactly. I'll be keeping an eye on this Armiga :) .

I'd never heard of it either, to be honest if the disc version was actually available now I'd probably just buy one on the spot.

I see this out on PS4 in th next couple of weeks, many from here played it?

Adore the aesthetic but heard the controls need tightening and a dodgy camera let's the game down, any truth to that?

It's been top of my get-next list since it came out on XB1, but I've had too many other things to play, so I haven't got to it yet.

And while we're on the subject of multiplayer, SMAC has also added - and this time for everyone, not just DLC purchasers - a new multiplayer map based on the picturesque Warwickshire village Bishops Itchington, which is both hilarious and delightful.

I spent quite a few drunken teenage nights wandering those very streets (and churchyard!). Now I have to buy it, to see if my mates' houses are in the map!
