Hey guys, this is Omegalfa from The World of CD-i for the 2nd Chronicle!
Now that we have a better knowledge to choose a CD-i player, let’s get a good controller!
You have for sure heard about the remote controllers that comes with a CD-i player:
“Very difficult to play with!”
“Who is the crazy guy who designed this?”
“It is supposed to play games with this?”
In fact, the remote controllers that came with a CD-i player was a little bit difficult to use for gaming, but keep in mind a very important thing, the CD-i wasn’t supposed to be a gaming console but a familial system, where you could watch a movie, check an encyclopaedia, listen music, play games and I pass many other possibilities…
So the main objective of the remote control was to simply move the cursor and click using a button.
Come to the forum to talk about this subject!
I have been invited by Stacy Burns, owner of one of the biggest Facebook groups called Console Purist, also member of The World of CD-i, under the username of Benaiah.
He needed to fill a void on his Facebook group about CD-i information, and I am so glad he turns to me to take this challenge. I am really exited to show to the world this underrated system, loved by ones and hated by others. Part of the people that does not love it have been influenced by crappy YouTube videos and other jokes when they most of them didn’t even tried once to play a CD-i title.
I am posting every Friday, to follow the #CDiDay Twitter movement, and this way improve in a higher level the divulgation in the same day of CD-i related information. You will find reviews, repairs, opinions, and other kind of stuff all write by myself, Omegalfa.
Each chronicle will get a topic on the our forum community, so you will be able to contribute with your opinions.
I am also adding in this section all the chronicles I will post there. A new Top Menu link called “Console Purist Chronicles” have been added to find all the posts, so take a good seat and have a good reading!
