Re: SNES Classic Announced

Ralphnet, a reputable maker of controller converters, now offers a Classic Controller to GameCube adapter. http://www.raphnet-tech.com/products/snes_to_wii/index.php Looks like a perfect match for a Game Boy Player fan that wants to use their NES and SNES Classic Controllers with their GBP. Also loo...

Re: 2018/1/17: Atari 5200: Pengo

The track-ball mention made me think of something. Have you ever tried the track-ball with Realsports Tennis? It supports it according to the box, but I've never given it a try. It might transform what's otherwise a pretty poor 5200 game with the stock controller. Doesn't save it I'm afraid, it jus...

Re: Nascar?

I can't attest to how it is in NASCAR's ancestral home in the American southeast and such, but I've been to many NASCAR Cup races at all the tracks on the circuit in the Northeastern US and have seen very few drunk rednecks. The crowd at Watkins Glen International in the Finger Lakes region is espec...

Re: Sega Dreamcast/Sega Naomi emulation incoming for the Nintendo Switch!

Digital Foundry isn't hacking their Switch, ripping games, and then tearing into the source code. There will be easier ways to make a likely determination. Strikers 1945 on the Switch for instance has, knowing that the system is only ever going to be used on 16:9 displays, decluttered the game scree...

Re: Sega Dreamcast/Sega Naomi emulation incoming for the Nintendo Switch!

I doubt it's emulation. Psikyo has a pretty small library of games that run on this hardware. With the complexity of Dreamcast emulation and the small selection of titles that could take advantage of that investment, it's unlikely to be the most economical choice. The economies of scale just aren't ...

Re: Review Wish List

I suppose The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (I'd recommend the DX colorized rerelease) is a major omission. I'm not sure I'd call it a wish, but I'm sure readers are disappointed at times when they open the Game Boy section and don't see a review for one of the more popular Zelda entries. Probab...

I found a six pack of 6" extension cords in the hardware section of Wal-Mart yesterday. Thanks, I didn't realize these even existed.

Re: 2018/1/11: Playstation 4: Dirt 4, Yooka Laylee

With Dirt 1, I was disappointed that rally racing was downgraded from being the focus and with the experience simplified. But despite the limitations, I happily got all 1000 achievement points and had a great 20 hours or so with it. Dirt 2 though, Codemasters went all-in on trying to appeal to peopl...
