I'm off to watch a magic lantern show tonight because mainstream, so called, television like Break it up Bad and Games and Thongs are proper rubbish.
There is a podcast (see the link below) on the Retro Asylum with the creators of the Vega and gives a lot of background information. Personally I am not sure of the purpose of the Vega vs its cost and it not having a HDMI is, frankly (Pat!!!), stupid.
I have an idea for a home project to build a self contained MAME unit with proper arcade joysticks/buttons for 2 players (maybe with rotary joysticks for some proper Ikari Warriors/Midnight Resistance action) and a Raspberry PI 2 so using HDMI I can plug it into the big TV for some arcade fun. That is going to cost me about £220 but I also want a new 3DSXL so I can catch up on Zelda, Bravely Default and other JPRG's I have missed out on.
The music on the Atari version of Jet Set Willy is so much better.
I can go get a Wii down at Cash Converters for twenty-five.
That thing's dodgier than an Amstrad E-mailer Plus.
For a few moments, the prospect of this doodad gave me a right stalk-on, but rational thought swiftly took over just before I hit Buy Now! on their site. Thanks for confirming my suspicions that this little box is wank pie. And not a single Dizzy game. Arseholes.
It's a pity some modern TV manufacturers are negating to include scart and composite (and RF) inputs on TVs. We still need them to play ACTUAL old computers and consoles! Pity about this Vega thing though. Was tempted, but I think I'll stick to emulators and piracy instead.
proper bonkers that nostalgia could drive this tat so far.
