>> BEST LOW-END PRODUCTION :

Of course Overdrive2 by titan on Megadrive may well rape all the contest, and in general competition is quite rude to win such award.


But let's encourage our fellow Amstradists and hope for them.

Even to be nominee is nice and means you did a terrific job and this give some nice well deserved visibility to amstrad retroscene in general.

Ok, Titan won against the Amstrad prods.

Was somewhat expected.

Good point : the man on stage spent his time to talk about Logon's Run and why it should have won, which was a dead giveaway it didn't win but should had.

I guess some obscure political diktat occured in the background, another French bashing and Amstrad Bashing if you want my opinion.
 ;D


Jokes apart, still congratulations to nominees and winners.

Nice to had 2 nominees from the Amstrad scene.

Yes, you used a smiley, but still that can't be true in the slightest.

The second place is well deserved, but I'm still of the same opinion that 16-bit 68k should not be able to compete with 8-bit computers. Moreover this Megadrive has been modded. Perhaps it's time to go beyond the basic machines and use mods on the CPC as well?

The 4th place of 3D meets the aging bits is an affront and I demand satisfaction from the Meteoriks voters! /me pulls out the leather gloves and slaps them in the face.

Of course it is not true.
 ;D


and yeah it can be quite strange to have a somewhat souped up SegaMD against Atari2600 and so on.


This year's Revision Oldskool somewhat only had 8bit systems and the 2 Amstrad entries were pretty good...
Would be a shame no amstrad prod can make it to the podium and I don't think this will happen, may even have the 2 prods in the top 3 (would be great).


Concerning mods, some 512ko cartridge on Amstrad6128PLUS is some sort of a mod already, well it is maxing the commercial specs.
But Revision2018 Amstrad prods proved good old CPC still has potential to amaze.

phX won't run on a regular 3' floppy cause the demo size is 800ko, moar than a cartridge ;)


So you can't say it is a demo for a stock machine


Anyway, that was daaaammmnnn  goooooooooooood  ;D
