Found some great retro gaming, indie gaming, classic consoles & emulation news sources last night. I’m amazed to see just how alive the old Commodore 64 community is too. Check them all out!
(there are people friggin building new Commodore 64s & making new games lol)
(I used to visit Zophar’s Domain in the 90s lol)
(These guys appear to be a magazine that’s been going for years.. how on earth did I not know about them!!!)
Looks like you can subscibe to the magazine here:
And these guys have past copies in digital format:
These are Australian sites however it’s a UK magazine so no doubt you’ll be able to find similar online distributors for other international locations.
I love it when fans use modern tools and abilities to improve old school games whether it be mod projects, fan patches or remakes of things hence why my website often tributes such projects after tributing the original base game. One day I plan to do big Sonic the Hedgehog & Super Mario sections on my website covering all the great platformers, spin offs and numerous fan projects out there. I also still have to finish my old Emulation/Console section one day too lol!
In the meantime check out these 2 amazing pieces of work below…
The first is a new emulator that converts old Nintendo (NES) games into 3D! Its a bit glitchy in some parts but looks amazing in others. Skip to different parts to see different games. Check out his channel for more videos and you can try it yourself HERE.
The second are some cool fan created crossover videos between Sonic, Mario & other famous series. Check out his channel for more cool videos!
Decided to add some fun stuff to the under construction Emulation/Console section of my site. I’m sure most of you were either a Sega or a Nintendo kid growing up.. or both lol.. I was Sega boy and loved my Sonic, Wonderboy and Bubsy etc but I loved going around to mates houses to play Mario, Faxanadu and Star Fox etc. Well a few years ago I found an old video tape I made as a kid where I recorded heaps of old Nintendo and Sega adverts, I converted it to dvd and have now decided to stick it on youtube for all to enjoy.
Enjoy the retro 90s goodness hahaha!
