Re: 1982: A Christmas to Remember

Great article! My favourite christmas was when my older brother bought me a Sega Master System in 1987. I still have it and play it to this day. One of my favourite xmas memories was actually from a few years ago. At the time I was 39 and my brother 47. Our city was hit by a big ice storm and my bro...

Re: Framemeister

Is RGB the same an component cables? No, they're not. Component is 1 step down from RGB. In terms of quality, from worse to best: RF, composite, S-Video, Component, RBG. This is a great video that explains the Framemeister and RGB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43dzrCAfU3A They do a great job is ...

Re: Framemeister

I have a Framemeister and I love it! I have a modest sized basement, so having a big CRT is not an option for me. Plus, I like using just 1 tv for all of my video gaming needs. This website below has all of the recommended settings which I use on mine: http://www.firebrandx.com/framemeisterprofiles....

Re: Best time of year for gaming?

As the cold air has moved in it occurred to me that we are approaching the best time of year for gaming. 1. Harsh weather and less hours of light means more time spent indoors. It's more comfortable to curl up with a game when it's cold out. 2. Many of the big-name titles are released around the ho...

Blinking Light Win - Pin replacement for NES

Several years ago I replaced my faulty pin connector on my NES with an Ebay connector. Now my replacement pin connector is shot. So, I did some research on line and ordered a "Blink Light Win" connector. This connector does not allow you to push down on the cartridge, which is what causes ...

Re: Wii Shop Channel is shutting down soon. Make backups for WiiWare titles while you still can.

This is another argument for physical media. True, but if digital eshops didn't exist, then most of these games wouldn't exist. Most of these developers for digital only release games are 1 or 2 person operations and it wouldn't be feasible for them to release their games physically. I wonder how t...

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

I think the point is that gamers are reaching a breaking point with the current paradigm of huge downloads, constant updates, and endless installs. Older gamers actually remember when you could pop in a game and play right away, and I think many realize the old way was better. The clueless media is...

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

What comeback? Sorry, I hope that doesn't sound snarky, I'm not trying to, but there's only 1 cartridge being re-released by a major company. How is that a comeback or even the beginning of a comeback? Cartridges (as we know them, ie, NES, Genesis, SNES, etc) are not coming back. I don't see any evi...
