Re: Duke Nukem 3D official release for the Genesis

I bought Water Margin from Piko Interactive and I'm not very impressed with the quality. The pcb board is thick just like on my translated repros I bought off etsy. The clam shell case is cheap however the manual was nice. The cart they use is the cheap snap together variety with fake plastic screws...

Re: How do cartridges get so nasty?

I have been a cartridge gamer since I was a kid. I have always kept my games stored in a drawer or cabinet. I have never had any issues with cartridges getting so dirty the system can't read them. But ever since I started collecting older games off of ebay and amazon, it seems like every game needs...

Re: Are discs on Xbox One and PS4 console/account locked once used?

No, they're not. However, it is possible for the game to include an unlock code for DLC of some sort. The unlock codes are tied to your account but Disks themselves are not. Regarding the 360 games on Rare's Replay, Good question. I'll try to confirm that later tonight. I know if you don't have a d...

Re: Ebay & Amazon Good or Bad for everyone?

Honest question. How do you think I should go about buying let's say a rare pc engine game? It's not like i want to spend $100 on a game if there was a less expensive option. I search the selling history on a retro game and wait patiently to find a game selling on the low end of the curve. Like it ...

Re: Ebay & Amazon Good or Bad for everyone?

Dropping $$$ on classic games feeds the problem. Your mad money is part of the problem. Soon you'll get to enjoy buying indistinguishable counterfeits for big money... if you haven't already. Honest question. How do you think I should go about buying let's say a rare pc engine game? It's not like i...

Re: Caution about Reproductions

A little more info on these repros I wanted to share. Today I received the retron 5 I ordered. I tested all my repros on it and had no issues. They fit in the cartridge slot and boot up fine. It's also cool that I finally got to finally play my famicom games I've had for years. My famicom 60 in 1 ca...

Re: Ebay & Amazon Good or Bad for everyone?

I love ebay. I've been selling about $2000 a month in video games. These sales are what fund my ridiculously expensive video game habit. I don't feel bad paying $100 for a game if I know I can flip it anytime I want for a tidy profit. I dont look at it as a business though it's just a fun hobby tha...

Re: Caution about Reproductions

Thanks for the 32X offer Wally but I already got a new one, so I'm back in business. I still plan to review the repos (via a Game Genie) and appreciate you recommending them. I think the odds of a repro damaging a system is low, but people should at least be aware of the risks. Looking forward to y...
