Another way of protest (misc)

If _they_ steal your news, why not giving them your traffic too? Honor is a matter of respect, but many people in the homebrew scene lack of it.

No more to say!

Kojote on vacation in China (misc)

Dear visitors,

Once in a while I can leave the place I am working for and enjoy some days outside my office. I’ll be spending a few days in China and will be back in nine days.

Kedo will be taking over the news for the time beeing. As our server goes nuts regular and needs a manual reboot, Kedo, EvilDragon and Celeth are notified and should be in the position to reboot as fast as possible, when required.

See you in nine days!

-Kojote

RetroAction Issue 3 (misc)

Retroaction is an interactive magazine featuring old and new games on retro platforms like the Amstrad CPC, Sinclair, Commodore, DOS, Arcade, Atari, Sega, Nintendo, NEC, MSX, Acorn, Apple, and more.

Content:

Features:
On the Cutting Edge of Sci Fi Adventuring: Blade Runner
We look at Westwood’s epic sci-fi adventure, and chat with the main man behind the game’s production Louis Castle.

Ghostbusters Through the Ages
With Ghostbusters getting a current-gen update, we thought this was the perfect time to look back at the various games, ports, remakes, and sequels.

Retro Fanzines
Retrogaming enthusiasts have been creating their own fanzine publications for over 20 years. We racked our memories and hunted around the ‘net to find out more.

Twilight of the Spectrum, part 2
We continue our trek through the Spectrum’s twilight years in Eastern Europe.

Computer Warrior, part 3
Further adventures of the Computer Warrior comic strip, from the 1980s Eagle comic, where gamers discover how to play computer games within the computer’s realm.

Atari STE: What Could Have Been
We look at the history of the Atari STE and think of what could have been Atari’s resurgence in the 16-bit computer market.

Interviews:
Louis Castle
We talked to Louis Castle about everything Blade Runner, and how it all came to be.

Tom Livak
A special preview / interview with Tom Livak on his NES game GemVenture.

Clyde “Mato” Mandelin
We speak to lead translator, Clyde Mandelin (a.k.a. Tomato, or just Mato), about the epic Mother translating projects.

We caught up with Mukunda Johnson to discuss his PDROMs compo winning SNES game Skipp and Friends as well as his other projects.

Regulars:

The latest happenings in the world of retrogaming.

Emulator Profile: STEEM
Often cited as the emulator of choice for Atari ST gamers, and with good reason.

Retro Respect: Magic: The Gathering
We’ve all missed a classic during our time (I know I have). This is where we pay respects to the forgotten classics, the misunderstood, and the underdogs.

Killer App: F-Zero
These are the games that are so outstanding that you would buy the system just to play that game. The essential games that every retro gamer should play.

Raiders of the Lost Arcades: Aliens vs. Predator
Unfortunately, the arcade is becoming extinct as a gaming platform, so we take a trek back through time to relive some of the arcades’ greatest and underrated games.

Retro Respect: Defender of the Crown
Cinemaware’s classic arcade strategy gets the Retro Respect treatment.

How to Cause a Complete Controversy: Revenge of General Custor
Forget the GTAs and Manhunts; games were causing controversy from as far back as the 8-bit days. We look at the controversy that surrounded these games.

Retro Respect: RoboWarrior
The underrated NES game gets our overdue respect.

The Weird and Wonderful World of Retrogaming: UnSensible World of Cannon Moon Soccer Meets Bulldog Blighty
There have been some truly strange games, demos, and cover disks released in the heyday of retrogaming. This is where we dig up some of these weird and daft creations.

TehSkeen Changes (misc)

Brakken / http://www.tehskeen.com made an interesting posting, where he criticize issues with few scene pages, who mainly gain attention with others work.

Here is the quote:

It seems popular scene sites like *** and *** have decided to appease to a wider audience by copying RSS feeds from major gaming sites and posting their content. Aside from posting copied gaming news they also post many ADS for all kinds of boring shit. Anyway, what do you think about this? Do you think TehSkeen should copy RSS feeds of gaming news and post it along with tons of ADS for general gaming shit? Please reply or vote to let me know if I should bring TehSkeen behind a level.
