Looking for "Atari" (formally known as Infogrames) in Paris isn't as easy as finding their logo slapped on their front door. In fact, the only evidence of an entrance (if you call it that) is a door/window next to a post office.
Well. Now that my 2600 set-up and cart collection are at a stage where I'm happy, it's time to move onto a project I've thought about for the last year. Revive some fantastic 80's memories and get myself a C64 set-up.
The video game crash in '83 didn't really come on our radar down here in Oz. After the 2600/Intellivision/Colecovision era, a lot of the aussies moved straight to the Vic20/C64/Amstrad. C64 was King .. or Queen if that suits your fancy I was lucky to move to the C128d. Mum used it for word processing with the Star NL-10 printer and the brother and I naturally gave the C64 side of the 128 a spanking for many years! My next gaming unit was the Sega Megadrive, so Queen 64 fared us well! Even had a little C64 group amongst the local lads/friends. Gr8 f%#king memories!
I'm not fussy which system I get. 128, Breadbox, 64C. Will source a 14" CRT. Want to use a 1541 and floppies. Like my 2600 set-up and carts, I love the grab and stab nostalgic feel!
I'm open to modern hardware upgrades, like the LumaFix64. I'm 30 years behind, hence a complete noob, so much reading to do.
As always, opinions on which hardware upgrades are good, set-up ideas and the usual AA sarcastically obtuse abuse is most welcome.
