Haven't posted in forever, happy to be back on the fourm
Sort of random, but lately I've been playing Aigina's Prophecy on the C64.
It's a side-scrolling platformer that is most famous for being advertised but never being commercially released on the NES (although I think someone finally found the ROM). I bought a copy back in 1992 at a local place that was liquidating all of it's Commodore 64 software (Keizer-Tech formerly Comm-Shack in Keizer, OR). It's basically a port of a Japanese game called Aigina no Yogen, which is not widely known outside of Japan, I guess. Still have the original box and manual and all that (happy I didn't destroy everything from my childhood...)
Just picked up an Amiga 500 locally off of Craigslist. I built a null-modem cable yesterday and have been transferring many games and demos. Never owned an Amiga. Impressed isn't a good enough adjective to describe this system. So far, I've been mostly playing Chaos Engine and Maniac Mansion.
Yes, the 512k memory module is there. I need to replace the clock battery though. Sorry I missed the meeting yesterday, I was looking forward to going. However, other plans got in the way. I noticed that Lemmings detected the expanded memory. Now thats a game that is too addicting! After a nice marathon of twenty some odd levels, I noticed that it was 4:00am
