  1. Pocket and accessories available for pre-order August 3.
  2. As Daedalus said, there are inexpensive accelerators available. I have a Furia, and it lets me run WHDLoad without issues: https://amigastore.eu/en/480-furia-33mhz-fpu-for-amiga-600.html
  3. They're now offering a two month free trial for Stadia Pro - https://www.blog.google/products/stadia/try-stadia-free-today/ About 8 games are available to try for free as part of the trial - mostly of the indie variety.
  4. It's all in this thread. Short version - For all intents and purposes, it's indefinitely on hold. Though others are working on alternate solutions.
  5. You just described the people I work with in 2020
  6. That's actually pretty good. They were going for over $500 at one point.
  7. My impression is that the TRS-80 line was... adequate. They were serviceable systems, but there was nothing terribly noteworthy about them. As mr_me pointed out, they actually led in sales for a few years. But between IBM entering the market on the high end and Commodore dominating on the low end with the Vic-20 and 64, they quickly lost market and mindshare at the turn of the decade. The CoCo series was also adequate, but couldn't compete with Commodore and Atari as gaming computers. For my money, the Tandy 1000 line was their biggest success. They took the promise of the PC Jr, and made it work. If sales had not been limited to Radio Shack stores, the Tandy computers could have been a much bigger deal. But we'll never know. --- The Digital Antiquarian has covered the TRS-80 pretty extensively, specifically around how it helped usher in the nascent interactive fiction genre: https://www.filfre.net/tag/trs-80/
  8. I doubt the MiSTer as it currently exists will ever be able to properly mimic a Dreamcast. Most likely it'll top out at Playstation 1 levels. Anything beyond that will require a beefier FPGA.
  9. Might be a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. Either someone made a promise on social media and didn't relay that to the support team, or the person who suggested they would restart production was speaking out of turn.
  10. Whew... got some true believers in /r/stadia trying hard to convince themselves they made a good purchasing decision. popcorn.gif
  11. Take it up with whomever decided to delete the page. I doubt it was anyone here on AA.
  12. Yeah - that was an eye-opening experience for me. I just assumed those sort of glitches (I recall them being particularly prominent in Paperboy and Rambo) were just due to poor coding.
  13. From a consumer perspective, it still seems to be a solution in search of a problem. No real news from CES, maybe they have something up their sleeve for E3. But I'm not going to hold my breath.
  14. Does extra RAM get you anything at this point aside from those handful of Neo Geo titles?
