    I think it's a myth that comes from the late 90s when CD burners only became available at consumer prices. You don't even need to "burn properly" nowadays since modern blank discs have chemical...

    Phoebe needs 1 jumper soldered and only if you get one that doesn't match one of the three types of model 2 boards that exist. Also some model 1s also require Phoebe, since the model difference was...

    I'd go for a modchip, more reliable. But if you don't have the skill to install a Rhea / Phoebe (which requires only the skill to use a screwdriver) then installing a modchip would be nuclear physics...

    C64 multicolour games use 160x200 and don't look blurry at all, unless you use the built-in RF modulator.

    Megadrive VDP had native support for a 128 colour mode, by using an external ram chip for the extra palettes. I'm not sure if any emulators support this mode.

    There's also a 128k VRAM mode, which...

    If you spent $3000 on a TV in 2001 then you probably weren't using it for video games, but more likely a home movie theatre. In which case you could use it to drive your $500 DVD player that has a...

    C64 PSU wasn't blobed, it was glued. As in it was a solid brick of glue in a stylish case with no vent holes or fuse replacements.

    Megadrive also had PCM audio and limited transparency.
    It could do more colour but they never used the extra CRAM slot, which is a pity.

    The lead designer also wanted to add sprite scaling logic,...

    The game is a too odd combination to me, Lost Vikings turned into a beat'em up. I want to like it since it was done by a local team, but I just don't find it that much fun.

    Weren't there racing wheel + pedal combinations available for PCs before the PS2? I recall gaming peripherals being really popular in the 90s, but I don't specifically recall pedals... lots of...

    The Nomad board actually says VENUS on it if I remember right, so this isn't really news. The prototype is neat though.

    If PD1 had the same framerate and allowed for berserk attacks like PD2, I'd perhaps prefer it over its sequel.
    There's a 60fps cheat but it doesn't just make the framerate higher, it speeds up the...
