As per usual I didn't play on much apart from my own stuff (and even then that was only in the competition) but I was impressed with the device StarshipUK had attached to the C64 to load games from - looked like a big iPod!

Also nice to see the SG-1000 as I had won one on Yahoo Japan auctions just the day before, so it was nice to see what I'll be getting in 2 months via surface mail! I was amazed at how small it was, I was expecting something the size of the Master System I or bigger.

Good to see an Apple II in the flesh for the first time, though I didn't actually play on it. And the 'portable' C64 with that tiny screen was just wonderful! :D

There was an Apple II at the first RCM event too.

So many awesome machines but my fave's were the Commodore SX-64 (such good condition and running all day), the BBC with SID chip was one of those 'what the hell' moments & Phu's Speccy, that was ace!

Other great moments - getting to spend lots of time on an 800xl with Dropzone, Quagmire and myself blowing each other up (or more often than not ourselves) on the PC Engine playing Bomberman & Karls elation when he finally got Manic Miner to load on the Oric  :D ;D

Saw the Apple iic there  ;D Anyone recommend software titles for the Apple iie ?

Neo Geo looked great, but I'm sure had an equally high price tag

Under Defeat on the Dreamcast looked absolutely class, as did the DC running on the VGA monitor, two player bomberman on the SNES on the large screen was also great  ;D

Was this the fantastic looking side scroll shooter? If so = next buy for my DC.
