; Happy Birthday!

A few nice additions, to celebrate SoCoder's Birthday.

1.. All (or, as many as still work!) of the old SoCoder Newsletters are now available in the site. It's been a couple of years since I overhauled the way the newsletter works, and I was too damn lazy to ever fix the old ones.
I finally got around to it, this week, so why not celebrate SoCoder's birthday with a trip back through the newsletter archives!

2.. Mass Poll Deletion. I deleted the old, tired polls, and replaced them with a huge (HUGE) list of videogames. Each poll has the year listed, so feel free to Google for those particular games.
And we've enough of these polls to last the next 5 years, so... get used to 'em!!

3.. Themes. I've added a couple of new themes to the site. They're nothing amazing, but I hadn't done any since 2017, so figured it might be a good idea to do a few.
But remember : I have little or no artistic talent!!

; Continued Hardware

Spinal carries on work on his C64 Handheld project.
Finally getting the screen up and running, working on the touchscreen, and more.
A busy week of advancements!

; Blockman Update

AndyH treats us to a pic, and some possible ideas, for Blockman Gets Twenty, his reimagining of the classic Pac-Man Style Puzzle game, for the Vic20

; Pakz Warriors

Pakz designed a bunch of warriors of different styles.
Would LOVE to see a retro style Gauntlet kind of game with these sprites.
Make it happen, Pakz!!

; OUYA Moniez!

It appears that Razer may or may not be paying out owed profits from any OUYA games.
Over at that OUYAForum, there's a discussion about who has and hasn't been paid.
If you're expecting anything, or even if you're not, let them know.

SoOffTopic


; Netflix Recommendations

Have you watched anything fun on Netflix lately?
Pop it in the thread!
I should probably start one of these threads for Amazon Prime, too.
Haven't watched anything on there for a while, though.
Hmmm.

; A Bad Coding Experience

Jay has a bad coding experience.

; Train Game

Paul's game for the week sees him trying to escape on a train.
But what is he running from?
The unforgiving regiment of having to make more games, weekly??!
