Wow thanks man, comments like this means a lot to us! It's enjoyable telling people the latest news but even just the odd good feedback or comment goes a long way

I've been quite ignorant! I regularly visit this site and didn't realise it was your work Neil! Lol... I liked the updates for the Amiga - PC conversions ... The Adams Family!

thanks Neil

One thing I might enjoy seeing on the site is some machine updates...

Consider:

I sold my unused STE on Amibay (bad experience as the buyer was an idiot and rather rude but that is another story) but suddenly had an urge to get one again (I am always doing such stupid things - like selling my Amiga as well!)

As a potential new Atari ST owner I wanted to know what cool things could be done (like HD upgrades, high density FDD etc) and it might be useful to have a summary of sorts of things out there. It would be NEWS as some of the kit is quite new.

For the ST, there is an indy developer making a board with IDE controller, RTC, and potentially a CPU accelerator. There is another similar device which interfaces through connecting a Raspberry Pi (really strange but great).

For the Amiga, there are Jens products, there is the FPGA A600 accelerator, and so on...

So, a series of Retro Machine-Scene Reviews or whatever...

I'm sure someone here could write a good Amiga one....

I'm not up on the hardware scene my self regarding Atari/Amiga, mainly just a gamer. Although if you or anyone else is interested in applying to write?

This is a great news site Neil. I've combined it with my daily check on retrocollect.com. These two sites togethor give you just about all the retrogaming news there is.

Indie Retro News celebrates 37.5 Million views and a personal Birthday!



Quote:
It is a time to celebrate for Indie Retro News as today not only have we hit a huge milestone in views reaching a staggering 37.5 million, but we have also been ranked in the top 100 for the best gaming websites on the planet - which is a great Birthday surprise as this weekend is my Birthday . It's hard to believe that Indie Retro News was formed in September 2012 with an official beginning in the early part of October, as an idea to give you the most interesting of gaming news from Indie games to our speciality retro.
