Also, I love this thing. They should upload their "Starcraft Beta Footage" where they just play El Jugador.

I like Lock'n Chase. It has a beat and you can dance to it.

Those music files are awesome. The C-64 had the most catchy and memorable game music EVER!
Long live Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel.

I'm with Jared on this one, that beat was verging on being both funky and fresh.

Who can name all those tunes?  That second one - "AREED" - sounded so familiar, but I can't quite place it.

#29 Posted by Driadon (2995 posts) -

Eff yeah, Lock & Chase. I used to play that all the time as a kid.

#30 Posted by Myomoto (310 posts) -

That thing is rad. I think I'm gonna dig out my soldering iron and build one the next time have too much time on my hands.

#31 Posted by dagas (2753 posts) -

This is crap, but in a good and awesome way ^^ Clearly the year 2010 is the year to bootleg old games from the 80's! I bet it would work better on an old SD-television though.

#32 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5138 posts) -

So... are you making adding a new page for this in the platforms?
#33 Posted by AltDimension (257 posts) -

You guys...

#34 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

Hell to the Yeah. As someone who is really really fond on the Sinclair ZX, Commodore 64 and of course the Amiga I love Public Domain (now referred to as homebrew) games. I'll play any game that someone belived in enough to put the hours into on thier bedroom pc. Honestly the amount of Xbox indie/community games I have bought is ridiculous.

#35 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

Fun stuff.

#36 Posted by Dan_CiTi (3188 posts) -

I lost it when Drew called the kill screen. 

#37 Posted by CitizenJP (1006 posts) -

Drew pulling that reference has made my day.

#39 Posted by _Horde (837 posts) -

I think ball buster might be a contender for GoTY.

#41 Posted by InFamous91 (931 posts) -

Can it play Jungler? 
#43 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

lmao at Vinny and Drew being stoked about Dodgy Kong.

#44 Posted by RVonE (4607 posts) -

Commando theme on the C64 was so awesome! It makes me want to dig up my old C64 and play that game again.

#46 Posted by Sarumarine (2184 posts) -

I can't wait till the future when we're playing games like Bioshock and Mass Effect on tiny ass circuit boards. Heh heh heh.

#49 Posted by ZmillA (2261 posts) -

nice, ryan has an astro a40 mixamp, so do I B)

#50 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

I love that name, Dodgy Kong. This system however doesn't look like its worth it. At that point, since I'm already using illegal NES controllers to play clones of licensed games, I might as well just bring up emulators on my computer and play with one of those weird USB NES dongle thingys.
