Arcade & Pinball Chat / Re: What it's like running an Arcade in 2015
« on: September 08, 2015, 21:49:46 PM »
Read this tonight a fascinating and brilliantly written feature on running a traditional and Bar inspired Arcade, I guarantee you will all enjoy this feature, to read it, please stroll over to the Arcade Bar and enjoy ;)

Although I really don't know a lot about the Atari Jaguar as it wasn't my area of play when it came out, I certainly have played the great shoot em up of Xenon 2 - Megablast on the Amiga in the year of 1989. A game that was developed by The Bitmap Brothers and also released on the Atari ST, IBM PC, Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive, Acorn Archimedes, Game Boy and Sharp X68000. But the news of today is that same game is being ported over to the Jaguar by 'Reboot' with permission from the Bitmap Brothers!
With a heads up by RetrOtaku and according to Reboot, this vertically scrolling shoot 'em up in which was pretty unusual for its time, as the player's spaceship can reverse the scrolling of the play area for a limited distance. Will hopefully be every bit as good as the original game with lots of enemy waves, deadly landscapes and powerful power ups. There is a down side to all of this though, due to licensing reasons it wont have the original music as it will be created by 505. So lets just hope that 505 can pull of a damn fine tune, as it it was the quality of the music and graphics that led to the game's memorability.


Retro News & Chat / What the Missus thinks of all this?
« on: August 20, 2015, 13:11:15 PM »
I thought this would be a fun topic amongst us old Skool gaming farts (well some of us) to get off their chest what their other half thought and made of all this retro gaming, collecting and general retro gaming hobby we all love and enjoy?

For me, I know she tolerates it and the retro related work I do, but I believe that's out of respect as she has no grasp of what I'm talking about half the time :36:

Announcements and Feedback / The Kickstarter Legion Page
« on: July 13, 2015, 18:06:56 PM »
Hello everybody,

With all the amount of Kickstarter projects happening recently, I thought wouldn't it be a good idea to attempt to try and have some of the best Kickstarter Project here under one roof, Now I'm aware we have a kickstarter post , but the problems with that is that Kickstarter projects can get lost and forgotten or more importantly over looked.

so I present to you....

The Aim is to showcase those of the best and most relevant to you and the subject matter here at RVG, but it doesn't soley rely on Retro related games, books, but that of Films and anything that is worthy of being showcased in the Kickstarter Legion page. There fore we would encourage those that are planning in doing a Kickstarter project to get in touch with either myself or Zapiy about showcasing your project there.

Requirements are simply, for those willing to submit their showcase to the Kickstarter Legion page as that we ask is to be included as an endorser of your project, helping you get your project promoted and more awareness for your Kickstarter so we both win <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smiley.gif" alt=":)" title="Smiley" />

At present we are head hunting those exceptional Kickstarters to include on our Kickstarter Legion page for your awareness and will add more shortly. So if you wish to check out the Page, it can be found on the Home Portal page on the left, under the roll out of "Kickstarter Legion" or if not it should be visible to you all on the portal or you can be a lazy sod and click here

Thanks for listening


Retro News & Chat / Kojma productions has been dissolved
« on: July 13, 2015, 11:45:22 AM »
Sighting the sudden news that Hideo Kojma was possible fired from Konami or more to the fact that his term there has expired without renewal, another bombshell has been dropped on the video gaming circuit. The latest been voice actor of the Japanese voice actor for snake has tweeted tha Kojma productions is no more, which I find incrediblely sad, their Fox engine is spectacular and was looking forward to what was going to be coming next, as I believed that Kojima productions would go out on their own.

But this is not the case. Read all about it here

Could today get any worse with the president of Nintendo passing away also? Very sad day for the video game culture.:(

very sad news today to hear that President Satoru Iwata of Nintendo has passed away on the 11th July from Bile Duck growth,

Retro News & Chat / Xenia - Xbox 360 Emulator Research Project
« on: June 11, 2015, 19:28:14 PM »
Xenia is an experimental emulator for the Xbox 360.

Pull requests are welcome but the code is in a very high churn state and may not be accepted, so ask in IRC before taking on anything big. Contributions are awesome but the focus of the developers is on writing new code, not teaching programming or answering questions. If you'd like to casually help out it may be better to wait a bit until things calm down and more of the code is documented.

The goal of this project is to experiment, research, and educate on the topic of emulation of modern devices and operating systems. It is not for enabling illegal activity. All information is obtained via reverse engineering of legally purchased devices and games and information made public on the internet (you'd be surprised what's indexed on Google...).

Simply a stunning achievement what they've done so far, check out the videos, you could be natively playing the 360 n your PC within a year or two.

Howdy everyone, as you all know I'm not one for taking a break from things and fit in when I can some goodies for everyone to enjoy and this one is no exception, so I was designing a few new techniques on imagery and thought to myself, this would be brilliant effect on a retro related items, and at the time I was doing some Commodore Amiga style work for my book project Video Game Artistry Compendium and decided to share these with the world as a desktop wallpapers, now these are abstract and wonderful all at the same time, so I hope you like them, now they are Commodore Amiga heavy, so if you don't like the Amiga, this is officiously something wrong with you??...ermm no, these may not be for you, but wait? I'll will be doing other systems and consoles and since these went down a storm, I'm adding them here for you Amiga petrol heads :)

Retro News & Chat / Solomon's Key 2 / Fire'N Ice for the Amiga
« on: January 29, 2015, 10:08:46 AM »
Is there anything the Amiga home computer can't do? An indie game developer by the name of Hukka has taken on the task of porting one of his favourite NES games, yes an Nintendo Entertainment System to the Amiga platform, Solmon's Key 2 ever only appeared on NES and by shear determination Hukka would not let that stop him from doing this for the Amiga.
[align=center:2r6fv4p1]Actual Amiga screenshots[/align:2r6fv4p1]

Hukka has freely distributed this port for everyone who like himself loved this game and what a cracking game it is too!, at present he hasn't any further intentions to do anymore NES ports, but who knows, I think it is amazing that people like this are able to achieve near 100% perfect conversions like this and begs the thought, where were guys like this back in the day when the likes of ocean struggled at times to bring conversions to the Amiga platform this close?
Missing from this Amiga conversion

'Castle' levels and other levels with lava floor/scrolling/moving enemies have been replaced with custom levels.
Final boss battle.
Some animations and sound effects from the original.

But a very small price to pay if you ask me for such a close conversion. available in both ADF format and LHA archive format for playing on a real Amiga :)

Hello Everybody!!!!.

On behalf of the Moderators Team, Administrators, Reviewers Team here at Retro Video Gamer want to wish all our dedicated members and everybody that has visited us in the last year a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful Happy New Year.


There has been a lot of changes since this time last year, with members who have left and members who have been growing steadily more active and have become a great part of RVG and we are quite sure that this is set to continue within 2015. We have lots of things planned and in the pipeline for 2015 and hope you'll join us during this time as part of the Retro Video Gamer family.

As now looks like to becoming a tradition here at RVG as the resident Graphic Designer, I task myself with the job to creating a little pressie for all our dedicated members here at RVG every Christmas with a little show of appreciation for their support and dedication to the Forum and RVG as a whole. So for the fist time I will presenting the Present for everyone this year, as we normally only present these gifts in our Download Section (Members with 50 posts or more) only have access. But what the hell it's Christmas!!! and this year I've created a wonderful 2015 Calendar filled with plenty of Retro Goodness, covering the Arcades, all the famous Consoles and computers for your enjoy to hang on your wall and also speaks words of wisdom to you as well.


The Calendar comes as a full A4 size with bleeds and is as simple as logging on to your favorite Digital printers site and uploading the PDF document to get made or better still if you can, print it out yourself on some of that unused Photographic Print paper you have that never gets used, now your chance too!. So on behalf of RVG , I hope you enjoy the Calendar and that 2015 will be a great year for all things Retro, Making new Friends and continuing on existing ones :). Have a good one Guys'n'Gals.

2015 must be the years of retro and video game related books and documentaries and it seem there is another lurking in the shadows waiting to be unleashed on the retro reading public, this time anothe amazing company to be covered Gremlin Graphics a great British Games developer behind such titles as "Super Cars", "Lotus Series", "Switchblade" and many more great games from the Zx Spectrum to the Commodore Amiga and then some.

So if you remember these classics to which Ben Dalish and Matt Furniess wrote the music for some of the best Gremlin Graphic titles.
