Retro Gamer Magazine Issues 1 - 30
Posted by MasJ @ Tue, 20 Apr 2010 | Message Boards

I've just added issues 1 to 30 of Retro Gamer Magazine to our Magazine Scans section in PDF format. Some more info on Retro Gamer Magazine:

Retro Gamer is a British magazine, published worldwide, covering retro video games. It was the first commercial magazine to be devoted entirely to the subject. Although launched (in January 2004) as a quarterly publication, Retro Gamer's soon became a monthly. In 2005, a general decline in gaming and computer magazine readership led to the closure of its publishers, Live Publishing, although the rights to the magazine were later purchased by Imagine Publishing.

Official Console SDKs Section
Posted by MasJ @ Sun, 18 Apr 2010 | Message Boards

Well, it's time for something a little different this weekend. I've just added a new section containing official console SDKs for Sony, Sega, Nintendo, Atari, etc. systems. You can grab SDKs (Software Development Kits) for consoles ranging from the Nintendo GBC, Gamecube, N64 to the Sony Playstation 1, Sega Dreamcast and more. This section is aimed at helping game developers and enthusiasts keep their passions alive by enabling them to take a look at how things were done before as opposed to the modern platforms in use today. Folks can also use this section to develop new titles for these systems. Pretty nifty if you ask me and great to spend a weekend tinkering around with. Check out our new Video Game Console SDKs Section.

HTTP Mirrors (Megaupload)
Posted by MasJ @ Tue, 06 Apr 2010 | Message Boards

You might have noticed already but this is for those that haven't seen this yet. We've started adding HTTP mirrors to all our popular ROM/ISO Sections. We're using Megaupload for this since it's really great for large files and allows most people to download at good speeds, plus, files last longer =)

You'll find that most of our Sony Playstation, DC, Saturn ISOs, and N64 ROMs, SNES ROMs, etc. will have Megaupload mirrors (URLs) available for them. Feel free to copy/paste these into your browsers and grab your downloads fast.

Check out our ROMs, ISOs and Games Download Section for some fast downloads! : )

Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon in 8-bit (:
Posted by MasJ @ Fri, 02 Apr 2010 | Message Boards

I'm sure many of you love the Pink Floyd album: Dark Side of the Moon. It's true that some of my all-time favorite tracks come from that album. Well, this dude called Brad Smith from Ontario (Canada ?) has re-made the entire album with NES 8-bit sounds. How cool is that ? I checked out some tracks such as Us And Them, Money, and a few more and they're really well done! Definitely worth checking out for both Floyd fans as well as Nintendo 8-bit fans around the world. Looks like the cold weather in Canada is good for something after all =D

Download the entire Dark Side of the Moon in 8-bit. (oddly in 192kbps MP3 :P) Also, check out the project homepage.
