I've just purchased this beauty. I wont get it for a month as i've got an house extension in progress.

Ive never played the game before but it looks like one of my favorites Galaxian. Thing is do I styarty playing the game now in mame or wait until I collect it?

It will keep it original too, but maybe refurbish the legs.

Wow that looks stunning. Juno Fist is a classic shooter that's a little under appreciated.

I really enjoyed Revival at the Walsall stadium last year. The stadium is just off the M6 and is pretty easy to get too. The event was far more laid back compared to other events, I hope to get their again this year. Being a Vectrex owner the new game looks interesting.

I'm sure the iPhone addon was a concept from Hyperkin. Retro-bit definitely seem to of had an busy CES. I've only every had Hyperkin clone hardware, but I'm sure I've had a few Retro-bit branded accessories which seem to be well made.

There biggest worry would be any Nintendo intervention.

Wow I don't have a Coleco but that youtube clip makes me want one even more. I guess the sounds are built into the expansion cartridge an play instead of the original sound/tune?

Looking at the website I didn't realise how much "Homebrew"/New games had been released on the Coleco.

Sega SG-1000 was also built up around Z80, same resolution, same Video processor, 1K RAM, 16K VRAM and even the sound chip was the same as ColecoVision.
So games from ColecoVision and Sega SG-1000 was very similar and easy to convert.
But also games from MSX1 are close in its structure, same CPU, same Video processor, but the first MSX standard changed the sound chip to AY-3-8910.
It was MicroSoft in Japan who starting up this MSX standard.
Wow I love learning new stuff.

When you see this you do wonder what Nintendo could do if they really wanted too. The proof will be in the pudding when it gets released, It could do a great job. Retrobit has also done a deal with Jaleco to release some of their titles on Gameboy cartridge, Snes Cartridge and Gameboy cartridge. I'd buy the just for Rodland tbh.

I do find the original Gameboy Colour a decent machine to lug around, mine could just do with a backlight.

I asked for an Amstrad CPC for Christmas and I got this lovely Amstrad 6128. Its my first 8-bit computer with a disk drive. I also got the 6128 Usb Lite which is a floppy disk drive emulator.

The original disk drive works and most the 3" floppies do too. The CPC is a nice Z80 based machine which fits nicely between my Spectrums and C64s. Very colourful, nice Yamaha AY sound.

By the way you can use the original Master System convertor on an Retron 5, Well I could until the Megadrive drive port failed.

Ive got a few Game Gear games but never really had the chance to use them as my two Game Gears are broken, and most Game Gears suffer from failed caps.

I'm a little down on the Retron 5 due to its poor build quality, poor gamepads and the use of emulators that were strictly not for commercial use not to mention the restriction of not allowing roms to be played from the sd card.

Sega Chat / Re: What is your rarest sega item?
« on: January 06, 2017, 14:01:29 PM »
I've got lots of Sega hardware and software but nothing rare. I missed out on a Burning Rangers for the Saturn when it came out at the end of the UK life. I have lots of SMS, Megadrive, Saturn and Dreamcast games just nothing of note.

I used to have a really good UK Saturn collection back in the day but sold it for £130 in the early 2000's - 40 odd games, Multitap, 8 Controllers, 3 Guns etc.

One positive thing about Sega are most of the must own titles are easily to get hold of.

Nice video. I like my 7800 as its got some great arcade ports plus Ive recently converted it to composite video.

Its just a shame the machine was doomed to failure because of Atari's woes in the mid 80s. It does make you wonder what would of happened if it beat the NES to market properly. Also the lack of an internal Pokey chip was a shocking omission when you hear the wonderful tunes coming out of the pokey chip and audio capabilities from rivals at the time like the C64, NES and AY chip based machines.
