Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

I will rank the canon stuff too. Lots not canon, from the Timothy Zahn and other EU books, knights of the old republic and other video games, the original Clone Wars microseries cartoon that gave us a wicked cool Grievious, the holiday special and saturday morning cartoons, and the Marvel and Dark H...

Re: Sega Master System Software Error

Just to eliminate things, does Ghost House or another Sega card work? If it does play, then it points to the pin connector.

Re: Early Piracy Theory - Okay to Copy but not Disseminate

Came across something the other day by Ward Shrake advocating it is okay to copy and disseminate for classic systems. Ward seems to have retired from classic video games and sold his collection a decade ago, but before doing so he built a handful of early multicarts for the Astrocade and Arcadia. He...

Re: eBooks and video games

According to LA Times, print books are back, baby. Ebooks hit a ceiling of 25%, where they were predicted to be more than 50% in 2015.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

Frankly I didn't even notice all the parallels to New Hope until these critics brought it up. Spoiler alert again, just to make sure. Loved the movie. Glad Lucas sold his baby. I enjoyed the movie immensely from crawl to credits, but the smudges from carbon paper from the script of A New Hope are b...

Re: Star Wars VII Theory: Luke Skywalker is the villain

If George Lucas made it, I have to consider it canon...Prequels are canon. That's never going to change. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away....Star Wars begins by saying basically Once apon A time. A nice part of Star Wars is the recognition that the story is basically Mythology in Space. The...

Re: Can you play Game Gear games on a TV?

Not on a device you can buy. Even more frustrating because it's nearly identical to the Master System only with only a larger color palette. This page has detailed pin mappings of the SMS and GG. It looks like you could(?) make a pin mapper as a snowy winter project. The diagram is the more familia...

The slot adapter is an okay idea, or a piggy back cartridge. All of those might end up being vaporware though.

re: Coleco Chameleon

The AtariAge link is both in the Ars Technica article and here http://atariage.com/forums/topic/235430-how-has-this-not-been-posted-yet-retro-vgs/ Its huge - about 200 pages. You could probably just read from page 175 on when Coleco gets involved for the recent thoughts. Nah, I don't do ROMs really....
