    Should keep all those old games alive as long as they are supported in future browsers, I recently discovered the Mega EverDrive - SD Card Flash Cartridge for the Sega Genesis which enables you to play 100's of ROMS on the console, it really makes me want to dig out the Mega drive :cooldude:


    This vid is quite old but the Everdrive is still available.

    What do you mean? This hasn't just gone live today - I've been getting my River Raid fix from there for months. As far as I'm aware, the site has been up for years.

    Mentioned on a prominent IT/Gaming site and shortly afterward is down for maintenance? I'm just guessing but probably had a large influx of people looking at the site who don't normally.

    I'm thinking The Internet Archive could handle a little Slashdotting. They've got more bandwidth than God: they typically have more than three million unique IPs visiting each and every day and average around 30Gb/s of sustained bandwidth from three data centres in the US. Far more likely the software broke than a story on a gaming site brought them to their knees!
