  • Hello, Guest.

    With the recent attacks against members, and lack of care towards their mental health we have started a fundraiser to help fund the life saving charity the Samaritans. Without their support and efforts many people we know wouldn't be alive.

    If you're able to help, you can donate via our fundraiser on GoFundMe Link

    Thank you.

Rest in Peace AssemblerGames, Welcome back ObscureGamers? o_O

I offered to buy AssemblerGames and really wanted it to stay. The more I am seeing people join and post here, I think it's best that this site is here and Assembler is closing. Assembler has some information that no other site has, I see this site replacing it. Sometimes, some things need to die, so new things can grow. AG had it's up and downs, but after the last "down", I never saw it getting out of its funk. Long term members stopped posting, emotions got of control, and bad actors ruined the site.

I've been sitting on a pile of betas I've been wanted to share (by posting videos), but never could really get motivated enough to do it. AG had become stale right after I had bought all the stuff to make quality videos. With that said, this site is the fresh air the proto community needs. I don't want this site to be a 1:1 clone of AG, I want it to be the next chapter in the proto community. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
We are planning for the future here; we are considering a front page with articles, reviews, interviews and such, along with youtube and social channels use. I think we could make use of your generosity and create some really interesting articles.

From my talks with demon, this is not going to be another AG, but what AG should had become if the owner was around and interested in it growing and staying alive.

I'm hoping this gains traction if AG really does die. It'll be depressing if it just goes down.

But, this even is also a huge opportunity for game preservation as a whole. No more drama with the owner. We can bring the place back from the stone age and modernize it here.

It may be best to suggest that everyone on AssemblerGames change their sig to this,

"Sad AG is closing? Sign up on the new Obscure site that's taking its place, https://www.obscuregamers.com"

That will help people that aren't' aware of all the craziness that's going on (drive-bys, ect)
Good idea. I should do that at some point.

EDIT: I do have one question. IS there anything important in hidden parts of AG that needs to be saved still or we good? Like stuff from the 0th bit section? I was given access there years ago but never posted much in that section.

I was thinking about you earlier - I was passing through shin-Shiminoseki station, isn't that your part of the world?
It sure is! That Hard Off where I film is in Shin-Shimonoseki. I live about 10 minutes from there by car.

Yeah, the name seemed familiar and I think you mentioned it in one of your videos.

Refugee, getting in on the ground floor, though I'm just a gamer, not a collector or a technical expert.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being "just" a gamer - it's what we all have in common. Personally, I got into the technical side because it's my line of work and I like retro stuff which frequently needs repairing.

Same here. I'm bad when it comes to the technical stuff. I do collect a bit though

I just do whatever. Discuss, give ideas, help however I can with stuff if I have the means and know-how, etc. I really should get back to getting the Sega DS16 pinned out so we can hopefully copy it for those that want a 6 cart Genesis/ Megadrive jukebox adapter.
