• R.I.P. NTSC-uk. Long live Bordersdown!

    In case you hadn't noticed the new url, NTSC-uk has now rebranded as Bordersdown.

    Our basic mission remains similar:
    We passionately review any game, whatever the region, whatever the format.
    We are home to a welcoming and knowledgeable community on our forums.

    The NTSC-uk name was iconic and lasted for 10 years, but apart from the Wii
    (and retro gaming), it doesn't hold much current relevance for the HD generation. Therefore we held a competition to find a name.

    Bordersdown hints at the past - we never liked the black borders at the top
    and bottom of PAL screens.
    It hints at the present and future - we like to seek out games from all
    regions and platforms.
    There's a new logo, which was a collaboration by many of the site's readers (thanks guys!) and a new site style too.

    We have switched to a new host http://www.nimbushosting.co.uk/ - They have
    been immensely helpful and their server is swift and reliable.

    We have installed a new search engine that allows much more useful queries
    and returns results quickly.

    We have:
    - an ebay gaming pimp folder - your items appear on homepage!
    - a bargains folder so you can pick up games for less.
    - First Play: get opinions by gamers like you on the latest releases to help
    you decide
    - No restrictions on email domains now, so if you previously signed up when
    gmail etc were banned, please feel free to update to your preffered email
    - Regular competitions in the Blueroom (see here for the latest winner
    announcement video featuring me in a Fez...)
    - Blogs. Now anyone can have a blog on the site. Go ahead and blog about
    your favourite topics.

      Sad to see the name go really but yeah, compared to the early to mid 2000's the import talk on here is really minimal.

      RIP NTSC-UK.

      Probably because it's not really an issue anymore, unless you have a fetishistic impulse for pretty Japanese packaging or just bought a 3DS.

      Said to see the name change, but it makes a lot of sense. This is a totally different forum now. I hope all the GBA and other old reviews stay though.

      Have you guys re-instated all those old articles which went down? I checked the front page by clicking Dreamcast, and I'm sure you had more content than that. I'm pretty sure I did a Bomber Hehe review for the site. Hmm, the old features and reviews are difficult to navigate towards.

      And you had LOADS more than 6 PS2 reviews. You had something like 50 at one point. Maybe even 100 or more. I'm just making those numbers up, but I hope you haven't junked all the old content, some of that stuff was ace.

      Fear not, I have it all backed up - it all has to be added manually gradually because it wasn't in a database before. I'll get your Bomber Hehe one done next
