Re: Recommend me some games

A lot of the thread has been about RPGs, I might recommend Star Ocean 2 on the PS. It is a really... really long game, and some of the sound effects and voices are annoying... but the game is astonishingly detailed for what it is. It's one of those games that you'd probably want to play through with...

Re: The Sad State of Future Retro Gaming (and Managing Storage on New Consoles)

I hate that games that require patches will need a workaround in the future. I think it will decrease their value overall. This is because the part of the market for retro games made up of people popping on eBay to buy some random stuff from their childhood will disappear. However, the core retroga...

Re: 2018/2/18: Playstation: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII

I own(ed) both of these, but I think FF8 is one of many games that didn't make it out of San Diego when my house was foreclosed on. (Also on that list: Sonic Adventure and Virtua Cop 2) I agree very much on the FF7 review, and mostly with the FF8 review. 8 is very experimental and different, but it ...

Re: Issue with PS2 reading PS1 games

It is an original larger model. Though I think I might have a slim model in storage as a backup. And thanks for the guide, I'll give this a shot. It looks like I have all the tools other than a can of compressed air. I figured there was a way to fix this... that does look rather complicated though, ...

Issue with PS2 reading PS1 games

Hello everyone, My PS2 seems to have developed an issue. Games that I've been playing just fine are suddenly getting 'disc read errors' and are unable to run. So far this has only happened with 2 PS1 games, but they're two I really like playing. Xenogears, which I'm working through and am over 30 ho...

Re: Systems You Have Sold Off

Jeez... I'm not even remotely the only person whose parents made them get rid of systems. I have 4 on my list... In order of "most missed" 4) Atari 2600's: At one point I had 3 of these things with a massive game collection. Almost every "A" game that has been reviewed I owned. A...

Re: The worst games you have played on each system

Oh, sega saturn. I have a Saturn collection! And I have some horrible games in there. Ouch. Robotica is mentioned upthread, but giving that game a shout out. I actually beat that atrocity as a child, and nothing ever happens. There isn't any increase in difficulty or story scenes or anything... such...

Re: Worst voice acting?

Of course Resident Evil would be obvious... but I'm going to agree with the FFX hate. I have said before, and even cited it as my worst PS2 game in that thread, but I really didn't like FFX, and the voice acting was part of it. To be different though, here are my nominations: 1) Actual loser, Megama...

Re: MICROVISION (1979) - World’s First Handheld System - Review of System and All 12 Games

Just wanted to say excellent review, and you are one dedicated individual to collect such a time piece. Thanks for an added obscure trivia fact into the "in case I'm ever on jeopardy" part of my brain.

Re: Finding old controllers that work?

That is surprising to me. I’ve had my same Sony PS2 controllers for years and never had a problem. My best advice is to Buy an unused Sony or Madcatz controller off EBay for the PS2. This. Controllers for most systems are really cheap on ebay. Exceptions I've noticed are things like light guns for ...
