I couldnt agree more. Hell i remember typing in pages and pages of basic on my c64 only to find the bugger had errors in and that swiftly made my mind up about just playing games and leaving the hard work to people who could hack the frustration.It is a shame as you say some of the things programmers did back in the day with only 64k or less were amazing and im sure many programmers really cut their teeth on old archiac systems,while learning all manner of tricks.It kind of makes me wish i had the patience to stick at things back then when at college...instead of discovering women and booze

Strange you mentioned that Retro as my youngest brother is doing just that at uni and he has absolutley no interest in older games apart from collecting gameboys for some strange reason.He doenst even buy many games just gameboys,mind i suspect the money he spends on ps4 and xbox1 is enough to give his bank manager worries

Wiggy i believe i had one of those back up boards for my c64 and if i remember correctly it enabled 2 casette decks to be linked to enable copying of games,bit pointless even then seeing as most people had twin tape decks.Nice bit of uncommon kit never the less.

I must admit that hardly any of my mates give a stuff if it isnt fifa 99 or any of the endless sequels.Yet when a few of us are having a few beers in mine they all suddenly want to play x-men vs streetfighter or king of fighters 96 on the old saturn or streets of rage on the megadrive.Apart from then they couldnt care less.

Funnily i just bought a NIB xbox360 just last week,why funny i may hear you ask?Well this is the 1st system i have bought since a gamecube and original xbox back in 2002 or 2003.And the only games i have bought are blazblue,deathsmiles and dodonpachi.
Now as a saturn owner i would advise you to get:
A)A japanese system(much cheaper than paying pal/ntsc-u prices.)
B)A win on the lottery(for the good shooters) OR
C)Used to operating with one kidney or lung.

Sorry about the late reply Wiggy.
Yes i never thought of the terminally slow drives from back then at least with the Amiga you could daisy chain floppy drives for the big games like Monkey island(awesome game.not so much with just the built in drive) ;-).I suppose it just seemed cool and cutting edge for the Amiga to be able to use those new fangled shiny discs to me at the time.I was just having a nostalgic trip down memory lane thinking of my 1200 before it went bang and thinking i would have liked to try one. As there was little chance of my parents splashing out on the cd32 after upgrading me from my 500 to the 1200.

Sorry for the late reply wiggy but no it will be my place so not shared and i know depending on where you live also influences how much the insurance companies charge.To be fair apart from my games and systems i dont actually have anything worth much so i thought it might just be better insuring those.

Can any cd player be used for a 1200 if somebody could make a cable?Or is there firmware within the cdtv and cd32?I know you can just flash media but i just think an Amiga with a cd drive is cool,i was repeatedly told in Amiga format and Amiga action that cd was the future.So was it worth having a cd drive back in the day and also would any cd drive work or would it need to have certain specs to work with the Amiga?

To be fair wiggy i have never had proper home insurance as i have never had much of value and it was only pennies a week on top of rent,however after that dream and looking over all my systems and games i thought i had better get something sorted as soon as im in my new place.

Well yesterday i played Assualt Suit Leynos 2 on saturn for the 1st time and must say it is quite tough.I managed to get to level 4 no worries but by god it became tough as old boots on level 4.So it looks like today will be spent trying to crack it and not throwing the pad out of the window :-).I must say it is a good game but only if you have the patience,which im very suprised i have tbh.Good game i would highly recommend.

Thanks people i think il look at some different companies policies as im in no immediate hurry and find out which will be the best deal for me.I have some searching to do to find a good deal but thanks for the replies and it gives me a starting point.

Cheers Wiggy well im currently not living in my own place and soon i will be again and wasnt sure if old games and consoles would be covered as i have just realised how much gear i have collected over the last few years.And i dont think i had them covered before as i didnt have many older systems then apart from the ones i had as a kid.

Cheers for the reply Trek. So i presume all my digital reciepts from paypal for my purchases would be ok?Do you happen to know any links to reputable firms that offer these services?I can tell you i was convinced the dream was real and to be honest i had never thought about insurance before.
