Whenever I buy one of those humongous Humble Bundles I sometimes think: At some point, I’ve got to add all these to my game museum database and that is going to be a right old pain in the backside. And you know what? It was. But, I’ve done it. I’ve also added everything else I’ve bought in the last six months or so, including all the stuff for my Nintendo Switch (which means two new platforms!), bringing the total number of games listed to 2831. I’ve also fixed some errors in the database that I’d noticed – a couple of Xbox Live games were listed as disc based, a handful of spelling mistakes, and some transposition gaffes.

All my CSCCGC entries are now online in a playable form! Wow at the graphics! Thrill at the playablility! Groan at the “jokes”! Hate at the controls! Thirteen fabulous Spectrum games to choose from. Every one a winner! (Note: I never won the CSSCGC). Don’t delay – hurry over to the CGC page right now! The “fun” starts here!
I’ve added all my comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition entries to the site (again). Hurrah! Well, I say “all”, I stupidly entered a few games last year and they’re not there yet. But they will be soon. Also! I’ll make them all playable with an emulator, so you’ll be able to amaze at them in motion. Although some of them don’t move. Hmm. Anyway! They’re all here.
Once upon a time, I was editor of a fabulous free video gaming magazine called ugvm. It was ace. But, due to to the amount of work it involved I ended up giving it up. However, the back issues are now on this site in a lovely read-on-your-screen format! Hurrah! You can see them on the ugvm page.
Welcome! Well, this is a bit different, isn’t it? It’s all new and shiny WordPress now. There are a few new things that I’ve added recently, like the Top 10 Games bit, and I’ve even brought back some long missing sections of the site, such as the Tech Scans from Everyday Electronics. More things to come soon!
