  1. I lost inteest in the Amiga but it wasn't overnight. I still love my late 90s PC though.
  2. I don't see the problem tbh? If they're new then of course they won't know all of the finer details and tbh, they don't need to. It sucks that prices rise but I'd rather not be one of those people that gatekeeps based on age.
  3. As per Flojomojo's link you can install it on x64 Windows so long as you use the replacement installer. It probably works quite well in PCEmu now as well. It's still an amazing game Elvis and well worth playing today.
  4. That's probably what I'll end up doing. There's a few people I can ask and get quotes from. Of course part of me says, No! Save money, do it yourself! lol but I'll leave it to someone else.
  5. I've never owned a vintage apple computer but the II GS just really stands out to me as a cool little system. They rarely show up though and usually get listed for £500+. Going back to PCs I do have an Abit KT7-Raid motherboard that really needs a recap. It has an AGP slot, 5 PCI slots and an ISA slot. With 512MB RAM and an XP2100+ CPU it's pretty much the ultimate 9x motherboard for me but I'm terrified of fucking it up. I've never recapped anything and I'll be kicking myself if I somehow kill the board during my attempt.
  6. Depends what you're going for I suppose. Do you have to have that Voodoo instead of a cheap Nvidia card and nGlide? Must you have access to Roland music or the fastest cpu for your particular chipset? Like you say, if you want perfection you'll pay for it. I think in general you can still pick up an old desktop and parts pretty cheaply that will play most games with a bit of tweaking. Other computers? I dunno, they've all certainly raised in value over the past ten years but I guess that's to be expected. At the very least the C64 is still affordable here in the UK which is great since that's the computer I plan to pick up next. The Apple II GS however...
  7. Sounds like a cool idea to me, looking forward to see if he makes any headway.
  8. It's £49.99 everywhere in the UK right now but that's still too expensive imo. If it was £20 I'd buy it just to mess about with.
  9. Things haven't got that out of hand thankfully but I am sitting here after dragging out three old PC's I've scavanged parts from over the years and wondering why I still have them. That's after watching Marie Kondo's new show on Netflix and being inspired to have another round of decluttering which tends to happen when I watch those kind of shows. I do like that PCem has finally reached the point where 3D accelerated games are playable. I've been waiting years for that and I was quite impressed to see G-Police runnning well on it the other day. Life would be a lot simpler if I could transition to emulation only but I just enjoy playing games on real hardware too much for it to ever happen.
  10. I did not reach my goal last year of obtaining Dragon Warrior 2 and 3 heh. I really want to pick them up in 2019. No other goals really, just going to keep playing through my backlog.
  11. Biggest issue for me was the insane amount of flicker. It's too much. I think all of the best games have been mentioned here tbh so I'll just say avoid all Sonic games except for the first one which is excellent. Also, Ninja Gaiden is a poor imitation of the NES games with floaty controls. Castle of Illusion is the best game on the system imo although Wonder Boy 3 gives it a good run for its money. My personal favourite is Alex Kidd in Miracle World, it's a little janky but I love it all the same.

    This comes out the day I go on holiday so I'll have to hold off for now but I'm looking forward to reviews and first impressions
  13. I got one of the previous batch and couldn't be happier with it Great product for a great price!
  14. Born in 84. I played a Master System at my uncles and begged my parents for a console afterwards. They bought me an Atari 2600 Jr for £20 out of Argos around Xmas 90/91 along with a small 14" TV. It wasn't too long until I got a NES but I have fond memories of playing Centipede on the Atari.
  15. Still using my NES at that time. I think I got a SNES for Xmas 95 or maybe 96. Up until I got a PSX in 97 I always felt like I was playing catch up with consoles.
