27 May 1999

This is the first update in months... I am very sorry but I don't have enough time to design new pages because I am serving my country in the civil service... actually I am "living" in Bologna 200 Km far from my computer, my scanner and all my informations... I'll try to make some additions to the site from this city but I will not have much to add until I'll come back home (22 December 1999 ).
Last thing I began to write for an italian videogame magazine called "Super Console Playstation". I am writing a section about the history of videogames called "Retrogaming". From now on I'll publish an article every month.
All the articles will appear in a new section called "Articoli". All the articles are in italian but I have plas to translate them in english as soon as I'll have enough time.
Hardware section: Added: NEC PC-FX page. A very limited page dedicated to this extraordinary system.
Added: NEC PCEngine Supergrafx page.
