  1. About time the PS5's most promising game gets its own thread. So what is Returnal? If you'd throw Housemarqe's arcade heritage, roguelikes, Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow/Live Die Repeat, Bloodborne and a pinch of P.T. in a blender, you'd get Returnal. For an overview: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/games/returnal/ Reveal trailer: Then there is this Game Awards trailer: And there is my favourite trailer, the recently released gameplay trailer that is an onslaught of particles, neon coloured bullets, massive tentacled creature

  4. Technoan just uploaded a review of the Pandora 5S arcade stick: It's a tempting prospect. Has anyone had experience with these? It's not an Raspberry Pi-based stick, looks pretty solid. And it can be used as a standard USB arcade stick.
  5. PREPARE TO JIZZ YOUR PANTS.... A new AC version "GO by train !!" will be announced. The scenery of the car window that is shown on the large screen of 3 screens, you can taste driver 's mood.

  6. Darren Doyle and Greyfox Books are funding their latest release on Kickstarter. After the excellent Atari 8-bit book, the new title is a personal look back at classic arcade games, with chapters based on particular genres and lots of great visuals. Having helped proofread the book it's shaping up to be another worthy addition to your retro bookshelves. Link
  7. Evening all. I am one third of a British podcast project (along with Paul Drury of Retro Gamer, and collector Richard May) that interviews the unsung heroes of the Golden Age of video arcade gaming. I thought I'd share the latest episode of The Ted Dabney Experience Podcast, as I think the subject of this month's show in particular would be of interest here from a UK perspective. We interview Andy Walker, one of the very few Brits to have developed coin-op videogames for the American market during the Golden Age. The Pit is something of a niche title, relea
  8. With a lot of chat going in the Retroarch thread i thought it was maybe time that this got it's own thread. Basically CoinOPS FW is a front end all in one emulator for just about any system emulated and is currently Windows only. You can see some of the stuff at the youtube channel here:- https://www.youtube.com/user/BS1ukNinja/videos I openly admit i am personally yet to get the thing working on my own PC but people on the forum speak very highly of it, and i can't wait to experience it myself.
  9. Not quite as crazy as the micro GG but still a surprise. https://www.theverge.com/2020/7/7/21315726/sega-astro-city-mini-arcade-cabinet-retro-price-japan
  10. Another port discovered over at http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/03/scramble-wicked-retro-shoot-em-up-gets.html#more An almost arcade perfect port to the CPC which puts a lot of the versions and clones I used to play on the C64 to shame.
  11. This is fascinating. https://retrobitch.wordpress.com/2019/02/12/pac-man-the-untold-story-of-how-we-really-played-the-game/ What causes this distinctive wear on the left hand side of old Pac-Man cabinets? Check the full artice out for answers and photos of old arcades.
  12. For anyone interested in seeing the lineup there's a full list here https://snk40th.com/ Picked this up on a whim as I love these sorts of collections, there's always a chance of finding an undiscovered gem. And....well it's interesting so far. I've played a few of the arcade games in this collection and their NES counterparts. The main draw for me was Ikari Warriors since I'd heard they'd solved the issue with the lack of a rotary stick (they've essentially made it a twin stick setup with shooting and grenades being on the triggers.) Great fun, if a little too difficul
  13. News from the always excellent http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/10/popeye-arcade-2018-gabriele-amores.html#more But now with the end of the year fast approaching there's another game that's been announced, but this time it's the turn of the ZX Spectrum with Gabriele Amore's arcade conversion of ' Popeye Arcade 2018 '; a new game which is hoping to win a prize during the ZX-DEV MIA Remakes competition. It's in with a chance, cast your eyes on this lovely port! I'm a big fan of the game having played it on the C64, 2600 and Amiga. Can't wait to try this.
  14. Check out this https://arcadeblogger.com/2017/01/20/centuri-aztarac-finding-the-holy-arcade-grail/ and then https://arcadeblogger.com/2017/12/08/tim-strykers-aztarac-the-final-chapter/ And here's the machine restored
  15. Other games too, including what looks like a VR Prop Cycle http://vrzone-pic.com/en/
  16. So, after a long period of just thinking about building one, I finally got the ball rolling and bought a 40" (101.6 cm) LED for the playing field. It's a cheap one, and the viewing angle on it isn't the greatest (right now it's laying slanted on a small coffee table at about a 14 degree angle, and if I just sit in front of it I do notice the far side of the screen fades a bit). I've drawn a crude sketch of the main cabinet, after measuring and double checking and triple checking I think it'll end up 23.75" (60 cm) wide and 41.7" (106 cm) long. The back box will stick out another 2"
  17. A fascinating article by Ed Fries (formerly of Microsoft's VP of Xbox game publishing): https://edfries.wordpress.com/2017/03/22/chasing-the-first-arcade-easter-egg/ The rest of the article is about his attempts to get it working first on MAME, then on a real arcade machine. It's quite a detective story!
  18. More news from http://www.indieretronews.com/2016/12/frogger-arcade-for-c64-hokuto-force.html#more This time they've found an arcade perfect (well as close as you can get) port of Frogger in the C64. It even keeps the vertical aspect ration. Download that the link above, if you're stuck on how to add more credits it's 5 or 6 on the keyboard.
  19. Hi everyone - I'm hoping to garner some opinions on a retro gaming idea, if you would be able to help... I've got a business opportunity focused on gaming (arcade & consoles only at the moment) and one idea I've had to make it a bit more interesting to current and potential gamers is to provide a service a bit like Graze, Pact Coffee, Abel & Cole, etc. The idea is that you can go online, select which consoles you own and subscribe to a service that posts you a different game every month. You can play it and then send it back or you can keep it for an extra fee.

  24. Can't seem to find a thread on this, after an IndieGoGo campaign the MEGAbytes Arcade/RetroGaming cafe in Glasgow opened last Saturday. I didn't make it along but it was really busy, queued out the door, great for a launch day. Went along last night for a nosy and really enjoyed it, they have the following arcade machines: Judge Dredd Pinball Operation Wolf 3 House of the Dead Star Wars Pod Racer A Multi Cab Game, played Donkey Kong on It Street Fighter 2 And a currently broken Naomi cabinet After playing most of the machines, a friend and I went on to the console selection, played o
