    Come join lonely ol' me

    I'm the first and so far only backer of this :)

    But is early days, only up 3 days ago

    He's looking to bring a retro gaming arcade center in UK ... hopefully in London, which is where he's from

    All the classic old consoles, and hold regular competition nights.

    Plenty retro arcade cabinets.

    This could be a new heavenly place to hang out.

    My pledge gets me a couple free passes too :)

    Excellent audio on that game trailer.


    Looks decent, the warping thing is fast, couldn't quite see how that was working even

    Not good news :(


    So from what I make of that, it's not happening eh.

    Big shame. This was going to be a great book already

    He does say that he is talking to a publisher but who knows.

    On another note the 'history of Sega' book was crap! It seems to just be cobbled together from information that was mostly to be found on the internet or in old interviews. No new interviews or any actual talking with Sega or anyone. Very little research and lot's of grammatical erros.

    Oh dear! Terribly Poor. I won't be reading any further.

    See my post above where I copy/pasted his update: http://boards.openpandora.org/topic/16556-so-what-you-backing-crowdfunders/page-2#entry354336

    From what I make of that, he's canceled it due to the problems getting copywrite sorted for all the images he'd planned to use from his box scans he'd accumulated.

    Think he is still looking into sorting all the legal stuff, so it might still happen, but it will be a long time down the road, so for that reason he canceled the KS project.

    I'm hoping that at some point in the future when he has sorted all the legal side of things, he emails all us backers again and informs us of how we can purchase it, which I imaging would be creating another KS project or reactivating this original one

    This looks quite interesting. I don't really do crowdsourcing... Kinda wish I hadn't bothered with Elite: Dangerous now...

    That looks a very good game, something to fill the Timesplitters gap

    You have a space in the URL, which breaks the link. I think this is correct:

    http://igg.me/at/flic/x/2680298

    At first I thought it seemed like something I would nevere use, then I saw the one the woman had on the wall that is assigned to "ring".  Pretty good idea there.  Looking at the pic and functions of the woman with one on her collar made me think of later in the timeline of Star Trek.  Add a microphone and speaker and :D (even better if the shape is changed a bit.  Maybe we will get there soon.

    I will inform someone of this, with an emphasis on the "ring" to help find a misplaced fone.
