Nice.

Was it used? It could have been an empty case or even better had a Raspberry Pi inside running RISCOS. :twisted:

OMG watching Dave...

.. I suppose there was no unwatched episode of Poldark / Ripper Street / etc on iPlayer? :lol:

I read a pretty scathing review on IMDB about Go 8-bit DLC ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6928560/rev ... _=tt_ov_rt ) and thought "hurrmmm..."

I watched it when it first aired, but couldn't help but FF most of it. As a games programme it was embarrassing. The players generally had no idea how to play a game. In one episode they show the classic arcade game Track 'n' Field, a button masher, then when they play it's a poor man's ripoff, probably due to license issues with Konami.

Have never used iplayer, don't really intend to either. You must let me know what it's like.

My main issue with Go 8 bit is that it is rarely 8 bit!

Most of the games I have seen on there have been way more modern.

My wife did enjoy the 2 minutes of the episode where they played (badly) Aztec Challenge as she used to play that on her C64 BITD. But they did manage to make a mockery of playing Chuckie Egg. Awful.
