Dreamcast SD Adaptors: Are They any Good?

The cold embrace of death, eh? It comes for us all eventually, but for some – in this case CD-based games consoles – it comes quicker than most. While older cartridge-based machines will keep going until either their capacitors go pop or the universe falls Read More ...

Jonestown Politics

As i write this on the 13th of March 2019, the United Kingdom is on the precipice of a peacetime crisis on a scale beyond the comprehension of anyone who’s younger than about ninety. The two main political parties are fiddling about, each looking to Read More ...

The Xbox 360 Will Never be Retro (a tedious classification post)

Ok, I’ll have to admit it – as someone who fits in the relatively uncommon venn diagram between history and retrogaming, I probably let myself ponder the question of what exactly retrogaming IS a little too much. Why does it matter? after all, it’s just Read More ...

On reflection, it’s probably a minor miracle that the world ever persuaded us that £40 to £50 cartridge games were the way to go. Back in the early 90s, you could probably count yourself lucky if Father Christmas slyly dropped one or two video games in your stocking.
