Favourite machine from RCM 31/05/09
« on: June 01, 2009, 05:19:57 PM »
Hi all,

I know this isn't probably the most exciting topic, but I was wondering what everybody's favourite system was from the open day on Sunday (and why)

For me, I absolutely loved the BBC Micro with the SID chip in it ..... I thought that was awesome, a technological masterpiece :)

Other than that, I suppose I could blow my own trumpet, and say the Amiga 3000 too.

So, what was everybody else's favourite system?

Having never seen them before, I'd have to say the SG-1000 (?) that Jon had, and the Commodore SX-64.

I was also really pleased to try out the 3D goggles on the Vectrex. Now they were impressive!

I did like Jimbo's pimped up Spectrum +3 with an internal CF card to store all the .Z80 files.  I nearly bought it off him *twice* but kept reminding myself I have a C64 that's in a box because there's not enough room to leave everything lying around.

I'll just have to make some more room via the donations route :)

I'd brought down a SatanDisk (SD-card h/drive), the PeST (PS2 mouse into an ST) & JeST (PSX joysticks into anything that uses 9-pin connectors) cables.  All were mainly for the Atari ST but there wasn't one on display so they stayed in my suitcase :) 

Next event I hope to bring down the STE with the SDiskEmul (SD-card based unit that loads images of disks into memory - no need for floppy disks) that I bought at a retro event in Paris last year.  Excellent machine for dumping a load of games / demos on and the users just select the next 'disk' by using the separate joystick.

Well, next time, if you can't bring an ST/STE, give me a nudge, I'll bring mine!

I enjoyed playing a fantastic 2D shooter on the Neo Geo - not sure what it was called but it was awesome.

[Note to self .. don't even think about buying one of those .. way too expensive!]

But you get a black patch on the forehead as some people found out & I was clever to use a piece of paper not to get the black stuff on me.
There are a number of machines I liked but the Vectrex in 3D & arcade bartop was the best.

I was playing Duck Hunt at the time so I did'nt get the chance to play the Vectrex with the goggles. I enjoyed most of the systems there but my favorites was the Neo Geo and the 3DO.

Wow, someone else who likes 3DO, I've got tonnes of 3DO stuff and have spent way too much money but it's a great system and very underated, Street Fighter 2 is excellent on it 8)

I'm sure Street Fighter is a great game on the 3DO but not with the controller that I used at the event. Really need a 6 button controller. Was that your system?

Super Street Fighter II Turbo is superb on the 3DO ..... it's a shame it's probably the only game that is.
I have a six button pad for mine, recreating the arcade (ish) feel.

My favourite machine(s) . . . erm . . .

Definately Phu's Self Built Spectrum, amazing that he built it from scratch! ;)
+
BBC with SID chip - a technical marvel!
+
Vectrex 3D Imager

so I have three (greedy!)

@muguk - sorry mate about the ST - we did have one there BUT room was an issue, well table space to be more accurate! We will make sure you get an ST next time - no problems there!
