I always joke that the next huge step will be when we stop using our eyes to play games, i.e., when we will use a "DirectLink" to our brain and "live" our games instead of playing them on a screen....

Completely agree. A figure like 8MB at the time was prohibitively expensive and would make the A1200 unaffordable and sink for lack of sales. I really hate to say it but 2MB was the right choice at...

Bullying, either online or offline, are acts of cowardice and show a severe lack of empathy. People these days are a lot more self-centred and, thus, less community-oriented than in any recent period...

Since I rarely use Amiga emulation, I only play it on my vanilla 1MB A500 and on my ACA122x-expanded A1200s. The A1200 runs it a tad faster, but still slower than it should have been (it should have...

But it doesn't count as a "bad game", now does it? Personally, I think it's awesome. Just needed to be a bit quicker (frames per second) to be perfect.

A base A1200 cannot handle a usable PC-Engine emulator. You'd have to have a very robustly altered A1200 to even run a PC-Engine game at a remotely playable speed and, if using AGA, the graphics...
