I recently aquired an 1983 MSX manufactured by Mitsubishi;

Msx basic isn’t the same as the C64 basic, I had to to some research to write  a small basic script with my 7 year old son, but we succeeded 🙂

Next find some cartridges to test the cartridge port, I never had an MSX when I was a child but a went to a local electorshop to try out their Sony hitbit which was on display. Remember playing some sort of ‘pitfall’ game on it. I have a hitbit in my collection but it isn’t in working condition.

Any Belgian retro-collectors out there who can lend me a cart ? They’re difficult to track-down on second-hand sites here.

Next time I dig up my Panasonic MSX together with  the Sony hitbit to complete the picture…

 

Naugthy Dog 25 anniversary, remember Crash Bandicoot ?

24 Dec

Crash was the first game I played on my PS1 back in 1997 and still one of my favorite 3D  games.

The company behind Crash is already 25 yaers in business, an achievement in the Games sector. A nice article about the company’s history can be found here .

Andy Gavin, one of the original founders/developer has it’s  own blog where he  explains the background story of Crash Bandicoot really amazing information so check it out here.
