We are back to take a look at how a Sky Skipper cab, apparently the rarest of the Nintendo arcade machines, has been recreated. One of the latest space based games has a knowing nod to the grand daddy of all space games, we mean Starfield and Elite. Finally there is a great show from the 1990s called Computer Chronicles which took a look at flight sims of the era. It is up on YouTube for all to see and is well worth a watch.
