I do

They replaced the console, but my original gamepad came back.

Re: The Criticize Nintendo Thread

Deep into the late stages of Super Mario 3D World, and now a return of a past hardware issue with it. :( Last night, Wii U gamepad failed to power on my console and displayed the error message that I did a bit of complaining about on here before. Following the instructions sadly doesn't work, with t...

Re: Bring Back High Score Challenge?

I wonder if we have enough compilation owners, where something like a Midway Arcade Treasures centric contest across the GCN/Xbox/PS2 could succeed? Would be nice to get arcade games into the mix, and by being so specific, you're guaranteed to be playing an even playing field with identical dip swit...

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

Hopefully there isn't many more paddle games, I've played Breakout and Super Breakout, Warlords is up next, think Circus is paddle, anything else ? Quite a few others, since this includes every 1st party paddle game for the system. Steeplechase uses it, but that works just fine without it. Atari es...

Re: 2015/4/24: Jaguar: NBA Jam Tournament Edition

I'm no expert on this franchise, but I believe it was just a secret mode in its various arcade forms and other home ports.

It may look better in motion, but seeing it in still screenshots has always discouraged me from seeking out what otherwise may be one of the highlights of the library.

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

Too bad about those two, but can't say as I'm surprised that you couldn't work around the compromised controls. It's a shame though that two games that fall into the top 20% or so where the 2600 games in this collection are concerned, are rendered essentially unplayable. And they're not the only one...
