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...

Re: VGA to HDMI for Dreamcast

So I picked up one of these Wii HDMI adapters and the picture does look pretty good. One problem however. The screen is shifted to the left side, with a few inches of black on the right side in the unused space. Is this normal? Is there a way to center the picture? I didn't experience that with my ...

Re: Recent Gaming Pick Ups

Just got Sine Mora EX for the Xbone (physical copy.) Plays like Gradius/R-Type, with a little Einhander and bullet-hell bosses. Very nice graphics, challenging but not ridiculous so far (I haven't gotten through it all yet, had to cleanup the yard after Irma passed through...) The time extension/man...

Anyone try Redout?

I see the futuristic racer Redout has received a physical release. Anyone give it a try yet? Looks a lot like Fast Racing Neo on the Wii U...

Re: VGA to HDMI for Dreamcast

Something new I just got that I haven't seen mentioned on the forums. A Wii HDMI adapter... A-1.JPG Several versions for sale on Amazon, though they all look about the same. Most in the $12 to $16 range. B-1.JPG C-1.JPG Wii AV plug on one side, HDMI/Stereo Audio-out on the other. Here are some pix o...

Re: Game Gear not working...

I've seen some Youtube videos showing replacement of the capacitors. Looks like...fun. The way it behaves is different than what the videos show, though. They tend to show the unit on, with a whitish washed-out screen. Mine doesn't even seem to be able to keep the power on. Maybe it's still a capaci...
