Forum Focus: Retro & Arcade (0 Comments) (link)

One of my favourite sub-forums on OCAU is the Retro & Arcade Forum. If you long for the good old days of oddball computer hardware or retro gaming, or love your arcade machines, it's definitely worth a look. Here's a few cool recent projects:

Also the current "Retro Let's Play" is The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past. Developed by Nintendo EAD, and published by Nintendo originally in Japan on the Super Famicom in late 1991. North America's Super Nintendo Entertainment System would get a localised version in Mid 1992, and the oft-forgotten PAL gamers would have to wait another quarter until late 1992 for their copy. It is currently ranked 11th in HG101's top 47,858 games of all time.
