  1. A very good episode, especially the segment covering the upcoming Amiga product from Retro Games LTD. Keep up the great work!
  2. Thanks for letting us know Bill. It is much appreciated. Definitely I would like to try and pick up the latest version of the Atari Flashback Portable if that is going to be reproduced again.
  3. The Amstrad CPC is a heck of an underrated machine imo. Definitely it is quite capable. One only has to look at the recent port of Pinball Dreams to realize that.
  4. Sounds like a plan to me. I, myself, am interested in any breakdowns. Also, yes, I do believe your mom would count as a tablet is concerned a 'mobile device' if I am not mistaken.
  5. I know, right? Hard to believe, but considering how many games are on mobile platforms and that people carry them around all the time, not all-together too shocking. Still, a little eye opening for sure.
  6. Yes, indeed! The NES was really the first machine to break computers gaming dominance that was from somewhere around 1983 until 1987ish. Then, once the Genesis and SNES hit, dedicated game consoles became the main way people played games whereas nowadays most gaming is done on mobile devices.
  7. True, they could not include games on the device, but that won't happen. They will have to include games with the device as that is expectation now that there are machines like the THEC64 and various other mini-consoles that come with games built-in. However, if carlsson is correct, then there could be some really good Amiga games on the unit to warrant picking it up and then expanding on the device at one's leisure.
  8. Food Fight would be a good game to be on the 5200 I think. Hopefully someone takes on the challenge / project.
  9. Yeah, I don't expect the games list to blow up anyone's skirt. That being said, if it can add games like THEC64 and/or THEVIC20 and is a full-sized computer, I think they will be able to sell the machine quite well.
  10. The Vic 20 is a good computer, no doubt it. But, The C64 is the better computer all way around. Still, either one is a good choice depending on which floats one's boat.
  11. I doubt it will be an FPGA device of somekind, although there is going to be a Kickstarter for a new Checkmate case with an UnAmiga in it here soon. This, I think, will be along the lines of the THEC64 and THEVIC20. I believe if then can produce a full size THEAMIGA for $199, it will sell like hot cakes. Obviously, we have to wait an see, but the market for such a machine is there, that is for sure.
  12. That is a big unknown, but I doubt it will be an 855 or 865 or some other higher end 800 series chip.
  13. Looks like the prophecy is about to be fulfilled.
