Vintage is the New Old Website Returns!

Back in early July Paulo Garcia reluctantly shut down the Vintage is the New Old website, you can read his final post here.

Fast forward a few weeks on, @CallApple, @CommodoreBlog and a few other new Admins, with the help from Paulo's backup, have revived Vintage is the New Old. The website is back online with a new smooth server, new theme, and a complete rework from the original backup. All the same great content, plus brand new content on the way. There's a few things left to bring back, (homebrew games and magazines), which we are currently working on. We're also looking through an older Commodore is Awesome backup I have. Over time you may see a lot of the old download content we used to offer on CiA, returning to Vitno. New Admins, new staff, new writers, An exciting new beginning. As usual the website is open to anyone who wants to join as a writer, just get in contact with myself or use the contact option on the Vitno website. Anyone that already has an account, dm me for a new password.

The new url is https://vitno.org please share, and if you already have us on your links page, please can you replace the old url with the new. Many thanks, and Welcome to Vintage is the New Old 2.0!

Backup of Vitno Game Reviews Begins

So, as promised, the backup of written reviews from Vintage is the New Old has begun. This is something that will take quite some time. Some reviews are old and have dead links, broken video etc, which I will edit and update before they get the ok to be shared again on CommodoreBlog.

Currently we have two new (old) reviews by Alec, Pets Rescue for the C16/Plus/4 and also Nixy The Glade Sprite which is a ZX Spectrum game. Why are we sharing ZX Spectrum stuff on CommodoreBlog, I hear you scream! Well these reviews are just too good to lose and although CommodoreBlog is technically a Commodore website, just like the Twitter account, we occasionally like to share News and such about various other platforms. I am particularly fond of ZX Spectrum, Atari 8-bit, Atari ST, Amstrad and MSX, so don't be too surprised to see these formats pop up now and then here. It's my blog, there are no rules! I have also added a few Amiga and Speccy reviews by yours truly. You can find them over on the Reviews page.
