Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

I disagree with this point. All you need to do is look at the music industry. Cds are no longer in Best Buy, and there's very few now in Target, Walmart, etc. Has this hurt the record labels? Not at all. They have embraced the streaming model and record labels are making record (excuse the pun) pro...

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

Like everyone else here, I completely disagree with the article. But it does hint at a notable point -- it's likely the retailers that will keep physical releases going for years to come, more so than consumers. It's all about the money. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo don't care much what we all thi...

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 ...
