    I'm super pumped. I know it's been causing a lot of grief for folks who backed it and are waiting, but I'm still keen.

    Dead Space was a really cool game. I’m a big fan of system shock and it scratched that same itch for me. Pity about the sequels.

    Not a video, but perhaps deserving of its own thread? -

    Target are trialling a new type of game store:
    https://www.protocol.com/target-gaming-concept-store-sf

    And ex Nintendo USA prez Reggie Fils-Aime has joined the GameStop (aka EB Games) board of directors.

    Interesting times ahead for the humble video game store.

    He's probably been mentioned here before but I've been catching up on some of Nostalgia Nerd's vids lately - really enjoyed the Amiga ones (history part 1 and 2) and am halfway through the Amstrad history now, also surprisingly interesting.

    Not YT , not retro computing per se' but I don't know where else to put this gem (do we not have a retro banter thread?)

    Who could forget Brashs.. tbh I almost did, but what better way not to forget than pretend they still exist, and that we're in some weird mashup of 2020 and ~1990 :p

    Dude I love that feed. They're always so quick to find a link from current events back to similar things that happened in the 80s and 90s.

    Goes to show that nothing much changes, and we just all go around in circles. :)
