I am moving the site to a new host that's more managed as I can not dedicate the backend time needed anymore, the time spent in there is stopping me using the site as a fan.

There maybe down time as I do this so please be aware.

The pricing is £10/$12 a month instead of the current £25/$33 a month.

Massive saving.

Nothing else should change.

Sam at Bitmap Books has a new Kickstarter campaign to create an unofficial coffee table book on the SNES/Super Famicom. The book pays tribute to the amazing pixel art, product design and graphic design associated with these iconic 16-bit systems.

It would be a massive understatement to say that the Super Nintendo had a formidable act to follow when it arrived at the dawn of the 1990s. Nintendo's previous console the NES (or Famicom as it was known in its native Japan) enjoyed seven years of almost unrivalled dominance following its initial launch in Japan in 1983 and had almost single-handedly rehabilitated the home video game market, turning Nintendo into a household name across the globe.

Its already at 350 % on day 1, unreal.

Reformation 2 C64 Soundtrack Remakes.

Matt's last project, “Reformation Last Ninja 2 C64 Remakes” was a huge success. It featured remakes of his own music, but a stretch-goal bonus disk also remade iconic Commodore 64 classics such as Knucklebusters, W.A.R, Arcade Classics, Phantoms Of The Asteroid & Sanxion (Thalamusik) by Rob Hubbard, and Arkanoid, Rambo First Blood Part 2 & Green Beret by Martin Galway.

The response to these SID remakes was so good, he will be using the same patented “Reformation” approach to blow up more 8 bit music classics into stunning pieces of ear candy for a follow-up double album. He will also be remaking some other games soundtracks he composed on the C64 and even featuring something from the NES!

If you watch the project video for this page you can hear some of the transformations made from pure SID to full blown production.

Retro News Round up / New Kickstarter: PlayStation Anthology
« on: April 09, 2017, 09:33:28 AM »

PlayStation Anthology.


Simply revolutionary! With over 100 million consoles sold worldwide, the PlayStation truly changed the face of the gaming industry. The power of its technology, the design of its shell, the greatness of its library and marketing campaigns, all laying the groundwork for what has become one of the industry's most important driving forces. It was a culture-defining console, the combination of Ken Kutaragi's genius and the power of one the entertainment industry's most influential brands, as well as the boundless passion of so many other contributors over the years.


To celebrate a console that brought wonder into the lives of so many, and a brand that reshaped the whole entertainment industry, the authors retrace Sony's incredible journey, from the company's creation following World War II, to the machine's retirement in the early 2000's.  Throughout the 26 interviews, important figures of the period recount their experiences with unabashed honesty, painting a detailed picture of the great venture led by Ken Kutaragi. Much like the Nintendo 64 Anthology, the PlayStation Anthology is unique in both form and content.


To fully appreciate the scale of the PlayStation phenomenon, you first have to learn of its genesis and the context in which it was developed, and understand the commercial and marketing power of Sony itself.  The PlayStation Anthology sheds light on the birth of the PlayStation and Sony, the company's triumphs as well as its shortcomings, its strategies, technological advancements and, of course, its fantastical games library.

Announcements and Feedback / Downtime.
« on: March 30, 2017, 18:22:28 PM »
All the recent down time was due to my slackness and non payment of the last 6 invoices amounting to £150. Our host suspended the account and then after I paid via PayPal I was told they no longer accept that as payment. On contacting PayPal I have to wait 20 days to get a refund and therefore that would be how long we would have been without the site but they would only store the sites files for 7 days so I have had to pay another £150 out to get us back online. The recent donations drive gave us £85 and I am grateful for this amount and if anyone else wishes to contribute please do.
