Just to inform that I'm the latest addition to this Awesome team. I'm the guy who will make the looong winded posts.

Today I've published my first instalment, so go check in the page (linky below in the sig).

Have a great time in there and leave your comments if you feel to it.

A big thank you to Kitty, TCD and DH for the warm welcome received and having the courage to let me post my ramblings.

Well, a tiny bit of work was done during the last 5 days. It all started on Friday when some random blogger f*ck ups got us fed up to the point that we decided that it would be time to move on. The most amazing Magix () kindly offered us some webspace and installed a shiny new WordPress on it for us (note to all bloggers: Change today! ). It was quite a ride to move the content over, but we're really happy with the result. There will be a lot more neat stuff in the future, so stayed tuned

Oh yeah, you can now find us under :

But awesome indeed what was achieved in just this time.

Magix, I can't thank you enough for all the candies!!!

Now guys go to the new address and check it out. We will fill it up, with new stories, reviews and all Commodore juices.

Been a while

1.) We have a new URL : http://awesome.commodore.me
So, update your bookmarks

2.) A lot of games have been added to our Amiga, C64, C16- Plus /4, and Vic-20 sections. So, if you're curious what we like, have a look please

3.) Photon has joined us as a writer, skope has kindly given me an interview, xpect is very busy adding Vic-20 games that are really worth a try, and 1time has joined us to add more games for your rainy afternoons

That's pretty much it for now, but make sure you check the page for any further updates

Well, the download pages need a bit more work (the menu shouldn't disappear from the top imo), but aside from that it is looking much nicer!

Sadly I won't be able to post much for a few days - I'm snowed under at work again...

I guess the blogger not-working-for-several-days-then-fucking-up-everyone's-posts incident a while back was what started you looking to make a proper site? At some stage I'll need to do the same thing, but for now blogger meets my needs... especially when all the annoying blogger bits have been hacked out

Well, we had 'ideas' and were quite close to the 10 pages limit. That plus the 'incident' made the decision quite easy to move on. Now we can do pretty much all we like (especially I can do a lot more now), the step was (and is ) quite some work, but it really pays off. At least in our opinion. New people offer to help out and hopefully it'll all come together like we plan in the end
Oh and Blogger can kiss our tasty behinds Really, the amount of f*ck-ups they produced wasn't funny anymore

Nice site Kitty,

I loved playing Icicle Works on the plus4 it was one of my all time favourite games, when you scored 10,000 or something like that, you always had lives left. Fire Ant and Treasure Island were pretty good too. I think I had Booty for the plus4 and a few other titles, I wish I had kept that computer, it would have been the bees knees if only it came with a disk drive or they were easier to come by back then

Wow I used your link and found loads of games to go with the YAPE and also the PSPYAPE, I had that on my PSP a while back with Big Mac, unfortunately my memory card died and I couldn't remember or find the programs I used to have on it.

I'm off to do some serious downloading now, thanks for the link to YAPE and PSPYAPE and where they lead you, absolutely BRILLIANT

Due to unforeseeable circumstances, which left me unable to access the internet for two weeks, as I wasn't at home, I have been deleted from CIA.
