Re: Framemeister Review

You know what? I didn't realize that my TV settings were wrong. I was on Operation Sports, and they had a thread on 4K settings. I tried those, and now everything looks so much better. I tried Wind Waker on the Gamecube, Ocarina of Time Master Quest on the N64, and A Link to the Past on SNES, and a...

What kind of cables are you using? AV? RGB?

Re: Framemeister Review

What a hunk of junk this thing is! The scanlines tend to be distracting as hell, and I notice very little difference in picture quality. I don't understand. Your first post was saying how much better everything looked. What happened since then? I'm sure it's just your settings. Check out my life in...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

I sent the system back today to get a full refund. I can see the game the ebay seller is trying to play. Obviously there's a good chance the buyer won't notice it's a fake, and he'll make out like a bandit. When I told him it wanted a refund, he offered a 50% refund and let me keep the system. Obvi...

Re: The Ataribox is now...

I can't see classic 2600 games being a selling feature, at all. I mean, these games have been released countless times, on the many different Flashback hardware releases and compilation discs on almost every modern console. I don't think people really care anymore about those old games, and the ones...

Re: Best Games for a Snow Day?

Ugh, I'm jealous! I love a good snow day! Here in Toronto, we haven't had a good sized snowfall in at least 8 weeks. It's funny, you would think in Canada we'd be getting hammered too, but it appears that the US NorthEast is getting the brunt of the winter. How about Snow Brothers for the NES? Fun g...

Re: Framemeister Review

I use the setting from this website: http://www.firebrandx.com/framemeisterprofiles.html There's profiles for almost every console, including Atari 2600. He even has a specific setting for the NES to eliminate the overscan for those games affected by it. Basically, you upload the profiles you want ...

Re: Looney Tunes Blu Rays

I own the Golden Collections. I believe I'm current with having each release that has the best version of a particular cartoon shot across Laserdisc, DVD, and Blu-Ray. The only stuff I'm missing should be releases that just amount to rereleases with no new content, or older releases that have been ...

Re: Looney Tunes Blu Rays

I wish they'd do more. Just a fraction of Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies is out with the three Platinum Collections (And Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles adds several others for a 4th release). Even tossing in DVD into the mix still leaves many of the cartoons absent on optical media. A quick glance at ...

Re: Times the VGC steered you right... or wrong

Readers often thank me for bringing their attention to certain games. Then again, I'm sure people have bought games based on on my reviews that didn't pan out. I'd like to hear any examples you have of these. I don't have any specific examples, but when I'm looking for a new game I typically check ...
