Glorious spring

The winter doldrums are behind us (at least hopefully!) in the Carolinas. First firepit of spring tonight (along with celebratory gin and tonics...) Any thoughts about the coming warmth...less gaming? More outdoorish activities? Gardening? Camping? Kayaking? I likes my vidjagames...but warmer climes...

Re: Huge Atari Boxes

I never understood why the older Atari 8-bit boxes were so large. To better differentiate them from the "lesser" 2600 games? Maybe to have enough space (width) inside for 5.25" floppies, and still have some "crush space" on either side? Though I don't remember ever getting a...

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?
