Hey everyone,

I've loved MSX and its games for about 20 years now, and this summer (with a lot more spare time) I've started a retro gaming blog to write about the games I've been playing. I've already covered two MSX games and I can say for certain there will be many more.

If anyone is interested to read, I've already covered Penguin Adventure and Ys III: Wanderers From Ys

I'd welcome any feedback you have - feel free to leave a comment on the blog - and if you'd like to follow for more, there's a twitter account here.

(Mod-edit: fixed the BBCode for the last blog link)

Nice. I like the screen shots off the PVM personally.

Thank you. I'm always a bit unsure about whether to use off-screen photos or direct screenshots, but I do think the CRT photos can give the blog a unique look.

Thank you! I definitely intend to cover more MSX games in the future - in particular I have a nice collection of titles by Konami and Falcom - so I'll post in this thread whenever I have something new to share.

Hey everyone. I wrote about the MSX version of Dragon Slayer.

Covered a classic... The MSX version of Nemesis and how receiving it for Christmas last year changed my life in some small but important ways. https://gamesfromtheblackhole.wordpress.com/2020/12/27/nemesis/

Nice review. Maybe you can add links to the versions that can be played online @ file-hunter.com? Both the original and enhanced versions? Then people can have a go at the game straight away.

Thanks Kaladron, I really appreciate you articles. It's not so common to have well-written and "with feelings" writings related to our favorite games and platform. I also like the real screenshots instead of emulator captures.

MSX is also very related to Christmas for me, I received Metal Gear for the 88's Chrismtas, and my neighbour (and still best friend today) received Nemesis 2 and Penguin Adventure. We just had Videopac consoles before that, it was a real shock and amazing holidays Smile
