About GA

Lots of you have asked why the original about page wasn’t actually about anything. I promise I wasn’t trying to be mysterious, I just didn’t think a blog full of scanned images needed any explanation! Since this is now a real blog with words and stuff, it deserves a real about page. Try to contain your excitement.

Playing a simple game on one of the earliest truly portable computers, a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 100 which was designed and built in Japan by Kyocera. Also known as the Kyotronic 85 and NEC PC-8201. The BASIC and OS of this machine were the last pieces of commercial software Bill Gates contributed code to.

This version of the Commodore 1084 monitor was built in 1989 by Daewoo in Korea. To adjust the vertical height and position you had to disassemble it to access some hidden potentiometers, an extremely irresponsible design choice.
Please don’t disassemble a monitor unless you know exactly what you’re doing, the high voltages can kill you!

Some words about the $500 Aluminum NES

First of all, I’m not going to give them promotion by linking them. If you don’t know what this is about, Google it or be happy you haven’t been exposed to their astroturfers on various game forums.

Analouge is a company well known in the Neo-Geo community for being scammers who sell very overpriced products with poor workmanship.

This is what’s inside of the $650 wood Neo-Geo they were selling before they moved on to the NES.

The major problem with their aluminium NES is that they cannibalize real systems to provde parts (CPU and PPU) for it, making these systems less available for normal people on the used market, to create an expensive fanshion accessory for rich people. They are also buying up all the NES/Famicom controllers they can get their hands on to resell them on their website for $30-50. Please don’t support this sort of cynical exploitation of your hobby.

Whenever you’re considering spending a large amount of money, look at the ad copy of the product very carefully. Ask yourself if the people trying to sell it to you seem sincere. Understand that news reports you see about products often contain only information provided by the maker of the product. Don’t get caught up in hype.

Question with 4 notes

Anonymous said: In your MSX-Fan scans posted on January 25, 2012, there's a pixel drawing of a catgirl fighting aliens. If you still have that issue handy, could you tell me if there's any more information on that image? Is it from a game or just a stand-alone drawing? Thank you in advance.

It’s a piece of original fanart sent to the magazine titled “War Cat 20XX" by an artist called "Fly☆Duck”. Hope this helps!

Dear Tumblr,
From now on this blog will be entirely dedicated to scans of Colony Drop’s magazine, Colony Drop. I am tired of curating what I show you and would rather leave that to the experts. The name of this Tumblr is now NeoDrop.
I will not crop out text or other things to at least give you the illusion that you are looking at anything other than a magazine in a flatbed scanner, because I am lazy.
I will not produce any original content, because I have no talent.
I will not choose images that reflect a style I enjoy because I have no taste.
I will tell you that the act of scanning these images has transferred their ownership to me, because I am selfish.
I am doing all this hard work because I want to become famous on the internet. Please do not steal my images because if you do I won’t become famous. Please tell everyone you got your pirated scans of Colony Drop at NeoDrop. Thank you and god bless
EDIT: this is a dig at OTNT not CD u dummies stop coming on irc asking why i’m mad at colony drop

You’ll soon be hearing from the lawyers at J.A.I.L.E.D.

as my lawyer leonard j. crabs will tell you, i scanned your magazine so it’s mine now. DON’T MAKE ME WATERMARK IT *waves burned cd of photoshop 4.0 in ur face*

The truth

If you put something on the public web, it belongs to everybody. Scanning and uploading the hard work of real artists is an act of piracy, and you must approach it as such. Do it to spread your idea of beauty, not for recognition or respect. You don’t need my permission, but in case you wanted to know, you can use any of my scans however you want.
