Not sure how that would work. Wii was able to do light gun games pretty well because of the sensor bar near the TV. Switch doesn't have a sensor bar, does it?

Or perhaps teaming up with Nintendo for another F-Zero ?



Yes, yes and/or yes. Probably never see a new Ridge Racer, either.

Shame that "90s Arcade Racer" ended up being a total Kickstarter dud...

Re: How is Your original Xbox and PS2 Hooked Up?

I've got one of my PS2s hooked-up via an HDMI adapter. Here's a link to the forum post about it (and Wii and DC VGA/HDMI adapters.) http://videogamecritic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=134793&t=14601 PS2 stuff is on page 2. There are also component-to-HDMI adapters available from Amazon, I believe.

Gentlegamer, did you ever try the PSTV whitelist hack? Has anyone here tried to softmod a PSTV to play all Vita games?

Re: Obscure Systems

Since this seems like a related topic, anyone have experience with the Wonderswan/Color handheld? Been looking at these things for years, but seemed like too much dependence on knowing Japanese.

Are they worth it, or should I just get more Neo Geo Pocket/Color games?

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Your mini-review is a bit disappointing. I was initially skeptical regarding the new movie, but then the (generally) glowing reviews set my mind at ease. Now this...guess I'll still give it a shot, but now some wondering about what to expect. Sort of wish I had no preconceived notion as to what migh...

Re: VGA to HDMI for Dreamcast

So, it's all good, right? Well, if you use your PS2 to play PS1 games, you'll need to keep the old PS2 component AV cable handy. Apparently, the older PS1 doesn't output a signal the adapter can deal with. It must not be able to handle upscaling 240p, which also means that Ico for the PS2 won't wor...
