Hey everybody! Chrontendo Episode 30 should out before too long. For right now, I just wanted to point out to all you fans of really horrendous computer systems that 1UP.com seems to have gone sort of Spectrum crazy lately. At Retronauts, they've started up a new series called "Spectrum Analyzer", with about 5 or entries so far. So if you've ever wondered why British folks of a certain age get all weak in the knees at the mention of the word "Dizzy," here's the place to find out.
And if that's not enough, there's even a gallery of the worst Spectrum box art, which is really quite eye-opening.
So, for those curious about "The Yugo of Home Computers", break out a bottle a of Carling, pop open a tin of Spotted Dick, and check it out.
In similar oddball territory, the HG101 blog has had numerous interesting posts lately, often about the international video game scene. But perhaps nothing as jaw-dropping as this write-up on the Korean Street Figther II animated movie.
I think this picture pretty much says it all.
