Comeback of Commodore?



C64 used to be my favorite computer, not only for games but I also learned to write first programs in Basic and ASM on C64. I still think some of the games on C64 had usability (is that the right word for games? I guess playability is better in this context) that beats many of the newest & advanced 3D games. I had a lot of fun with chasing just a couple of pixels on the screen. Commodore seems to be coming back in a week and it makes me wonder what they're up to!

Hey, that was my first "real" computer ! ( Not counting ZX 81 :s ). Used to do some BASIC stuff on it, and yeah, there were some great games on the legendary 5.25" floppy ! I still have this dinosaur :)
Regarding the website, I think it's just some C64 games made in Flash, we already have seen that with Prince Of Persia (Amstrad).

It was first computer where i wrote a program. My father said when I was 6 years old, that I will get an own computer when I write a simple basic program on his C64. I did it and my x-mas present was my first AMIGA. I think these were one of the best computer times :-) My Commodore VC20 even had a small handbook with a few simple examples for basic programs. So I'm interested what happens on this site.

Pah, C64 is teh suck, ZX Spectrum pwns! Amigas were the dogs', though. What Commodore are up to is a "gaming PC", apparently. Probably as doomed to failure as every other venture by every other company that owned the Commodore brand in the post-Amiga days.
