This has to be one of my favorite photos from Revival so far. One of the Cosplay entrants came as Blanka from Street Fighter 2.
Here he is playing as Blanka on The Centre for Computing History’s Super Famicom.
A museum documenting developments in computing over the past 50 years is to move to Cambridge.
The Centre for Computing History is to relocate to the city from its base in Haverhill, Suffolk, and could be open by the summer.
The charity has been looking for new premises for two years.
Director Jason Fitzpatrick said: “It’s important to be in Cambridge because of the city’s history and the part it has played in the home computing era.”

Think its time to dig out my Tatung Einstein TC01 - its been in storage for quite a while now. Did you have one of these? What are the best games for it?
One of the most popular games from the 8-bit computing era has been remade for the PC- Sabre Wulf! (BTW – I prefer the Amstrad CPC version over the Spectrum! )
Guide Sabreman through the maze of jungle pathways, searching for the four pieces of the Wulf amulet which will persuade the guardian of the cave to reveal the exit.
Armed only with his sword, Sabreman must fend off jungle creatures, rampaging rhinos, sleeping wild boar and the local natives in his quest, collecting treasures
on the way and making use of the local plant-life which unleash strange powers, albeit temporarily!
