  1. Does this work on a TV with a Bluetooth controller attached? An Android TV of course ... or does it need the dedicated controller to do that?
  2. I really like Stadia too, from the brief few goes I've had on it - most recently to play the Resi Village demo. I have no subscription or controller or anything, just played it on my phone with a generic Bluetooth controller and had a great time, so easy to jump into and start playing. This is why I think streaming is the future. On the other hand I totally agree with the concerns that you could end up spending a considerable amount of money on a library that then disappears if Google takes the service offline.
  3. So the lesson you've learned is that your opinion on big corporates that enter the gaming industry can change?
  4. Isn't 7 the only one that doesn't end in basically the same identikit secret underground laboratory? (Granted the ship bit is still much more formulaic and uninspired than the first part of the game). I've played all of them to the end except for 6. I can't actually remember the end of 5 though. Probably an underground laboratory though.
  5. I'd always been led to believe that NES and SNES carts all contained proprietary Nintendo code (even third party games) that was needed for the games to run on Nintendo's consoles. Hence why Nintendo felt justified in stopping ROM sites from hosting even third party games. Does anyone know if this is true?
  6. Do they work though? I remember in the old days UAE had a "kickstart replacement" in the package but it never worked for me and I always had to find proper ROMs.
  7. The Amiga thing is definitely down to licensing the kickstart ROMs, but that's perfectly possible if they're willing to pay for it. Gods is on Antstream as well as being remastered, so the fact there's a remaster can't prevent other people from licensing it outright. It's probably down to the fact that Evercade would launch it as a physical product.
  8. Yes, we've done this before, and as I pointed out before, there are many kinds of open source license and lots of emulators are available on the sort of open source licence where you can indeed use it commercially, for no cost. Mame 0.134 (I think, can't be bothered to go and look up the exact version again), Mednafen, Fuse, Vice, WinUAE ... Those alone will let you release just about anything you want, commercially, without needing a licence. (Except you'll need kickstart ROMs for WinUAE of course).
  9. It's not licensed anywhere exclusively. It can't be, because I know of at least two services it's available on.
  10. If it's none of the above, I think I know the game. It has much more basic graphics than the games people are guessing here, if I'm right. Closer to Galaxians/Phoenix. And it did the 3D effect by some sort of mirror or screen-tilting or something - giving a sort of perspective. Does that sound right ?
  11. As always it's the little touches, like Alan wearing a hoodie while he has dinner with the monks.
  12. It does sound very ambitious and a bit like it's trying to be all things to all people, which is always worrying with a new product or service.
  13. So it is. That's interesting. Although it doesn't mention streaming anywhere, except in the context of Twitch. It has lots of the features I wanted to implement at Antstream, but never got the chance to before I left. Most obviously online multiplayer but also inbuilt integration with Twitch and the ability to run your own games. Lots of stuff I never dreamed of, too like using original carts! It also looks to be much more targeted towards retro gamers, rather than "casual gamers" which was the target audience at Antstream when I was there (despite my objections). Far
  14. I think it means a dedicated retro device, which the Switch obviously isn't. I mean, technically you can play multiplayer retro games on the PS4 and Xbox One. Although there never seems to be anyone around to play with, when I try.
