lots of upcoming reviews and hype
September 03 News
boy has it been a busy week at PeeknPoke.
After relaxing after Back in Time 2003 and lots of beer gaming, I came
home clutching lots of CD sets to get stuck into. PeeknPoke will be
reviewing these two releases this week (or as soon as) ...
Yes, it been released. As long as you can
remember this emulator front end for C64 emus has been waiting in the
wings, being re-polished and brushed up for release. Now after years, its
finally here in its 2 CD set glory. To try to get it of the net is easy,
its the games that Gamebase runs that is the hard part. Try using Kazza
for the ISO files, as the servers the games are held on at present seem to
be constantly hammered by would be Commodore gamers. Meeting up with
producers John and James at Back in Time, we chatted into the night about
Gamebase and it truly seems to good to be true. Loads of games to play
complete with screenshots, gamemusic and even the .tap file on hand so you
can load it as if from tape. Box shots and lots of information? Its all
here and has it been worth the wait? Check out the full PnP review soon.
Have you heard the C64 Martin Galway tunes
as they intended? It does not seem so as Boz has been working hard on a
new 2 CD sets of Commodore 64 themes produced from Galway's source disks
and played through the SID chip he worked on. Sounds like for a really c64
music fan only eh? Well, it sounds weird but the music is different (the
SID chip differed from machine to machine ya see) but is it worth the dosh.
What does Street hawk (unreleased) finally sound like ?Grab the review here soon.
