Well the movies need to wait 'til the HD Advance plops on the doormat. I'm really keyed up now, though I'm in debate with myself if that's best or a spare PS2.....

I didn't know about these backup methods, though I didn't have a PS2 until a year or two back. That'll be great to keep the music software should the disc drive fail, though perhaps a good PC emulator will come which can take the discs and USBs.

Though I'll have one of these.

It's a really good game that it's worth having more than just the download. Peck the animals away from the eggs, bone the hens to get more but watch out for their rolling pins if you leave them too long.

And aah, this one's got a royal crest on it. So it must be alright.

Where are the royal crests on the new PS4 games, eh?

And I'm having them. Velcro'd to the Retro Wall, I'll have some iconic games on display, like IK+, Spitting Image, Dares Wins, Blockbusters, Sam Fox or Chickin Chase.

...Hamster could be an option. That is, going whole hog and buying them over again just to fit the holder.



Yes, for a quid:

Image
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yes-Prime-Min ... fresh=true

Actually as funny and paced as the real episodes, which impressed the show's actual writers.



Plus SF2. Bit of a crap game but the title is legendary.

Image
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Street-Fighte ... fresh=true





And Arcade Classics and all, yup yup: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arcade-Classi ... 4ad4434818


I'll have to find Mario Bros another time, unless I stick up my Spectrum one. And there could be a regular cassette Viz soon. Another crappy game with a legendary name.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Great-Gia ... 43c8cc10ea

....Though maybe not Giana. Look at that, £4,000! Makes even the £200 tape I saw look cheap. And it's not like the 64 version doesn't handle like a JCB anyway.

And this is good. Hmm, yes, I think I will get back into buying the tapes again of the good games.

And here are two not actually on CSDB.

The VIC version doesn't look a bad game and it is on elsewhere: http://www.fzroms.com/roms/download-Sha ... 2DbWoFdVmM

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Commodore-C64 ... NA:GB:3160



I'll buy the asteroid one.




And I'd take Sim City if it weren't the wrong format for my holder: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Commodore-64- ... 3a7812c53a




And these seem in such good nick that you scarcely believe they're 30 years old. Especially after being mangled by kids and whatnot. I've known of original Beatle albums barely lasting the end of their decade without becoming too worn and tattered.

I liked the Vic20 game. That would have really impressed me in 1982/3.

Bugger me, it's a Challen: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHALLEN-Uprig ... 20e5d2a612

That's a lot of synth, isn't it! I quite enjoy the older works there. I thought keyboard synths of the 80s and later could be a bit too saccharine. Well, far too saccharine, especially on the supermarket-sold cheapo LPs like Telstar's The Synthesiser Album of 1989. But the SID certainly bucks that.



And I saw this device in a charity shop yesterday. It may come in handy for Lman or Analog X64. Wouldn't it?

And bits I did buy in town include a Microsoft Musical Instruments CD-Rom.

Image
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MICROSOFT-HOM ... 4ad23e515d


And Cinemania '95. And for far cheaper than on here, like £1 each.

Image
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Microsoft-Hom ... 35b624cf22



I'm getting back into my old CD-Roms, like The Genius Of Edison and the Flagtower interactive documentaries about World War 1 or the Space Race. I recommend people delve theirs too. The Web has more these days but you can't often immerse the way the Roms did through their journeys. And there's that good retro flavour now it's all about 20 years old.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Genius-of ... 5894683583

Especially this Edison one, which combines two of 'em. And it does convey the real excitement of the brand new electric street lighting system, vote ticker or phonograph.


The Multimedia Age. Nice.

Might try this one too. Could go very well with my LP of Yehudi Menuhin talking his way around an orchestra pit, telling you what each instrument's about. And my copy's mint as well.

He's happy now.


I like my bits, you do know that.
