If my power adapter comes soon and doesn't fix the problem, I'll order one too!

Re: AVGN Reasons Blu Ray Sucks

I do like the way Blu Ray discs are more scratch resistant compared to DVD's. I love physical media, but DVD's can be quite fragile and ultimately unusable over time if they get scratches. That's why I like cartridges--very durable! I've had DVD games and movies stop working, but my Blu Rays all see...

Re: Streets of Rage 4 is Coming

velcrozombie - I'm interested in those other games you named. Are any available on physical media? I've seen River City Girls at the local Best Buy https://www.bestbuy.com/site/river-city-girls-standard-edition-nintendo-switch/6390274.p?skuId=6390274 For some reason, the cartoony art style just doe...

Re: Atari Flashback X

Holy cow I was not aware of the Retron 77!! I'm intrigued. Please tell me more! I got to play with one at a local game store and I really liked it. It goes on sale on Amazon from time to time, and I've seen it as low as $68. Things to keep in mind: 1. Some hombrews and games with special chips like...

Re: Collectorvision Phoenix?

IThe great irony is that I already own a Mega SG, and with the custom firmware, it plays ColecoVision beautifully. Full 1080p, excellent sound, and a Sega Genesis arcade stick or wireless controller. The only downside is that they haven't made a cartridge adapter for it, so it's roms only. There's ...

Only thing is, it doesn't remember this so I'll need to do this every time.


Mine is coming Monday :D

Re: Would you buy a $500 Console?

If the PS5 offers full backwards compatibility (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4) it will actually be a good value at $500. If not, I don't think $500 is an unreasonable price, but it would be better to wait a year for Black Friday bundles/sales and more exclusive software. Now that I own a really nice gaming pc,...

Re: Collectorvision Phoenix?

I'm definitely buying the Amico. I've already preordered the Turbografx mini. I'm hoping the full size C64 comes to America soon as well (only in Europe now). The ColecoVision is frustrating me lately. I AV modded mine, and had to replace the power switch as well. I've gone through two power bricks ...

Re: Console Future Values

Since the Wii U sold relatively poorly, I wonder if it will eventually go up in value once we are a few generations ahead.

Re: Console Design Blunders

The original Atari 5200 had the power and RF integrated into a single, flimsy switchbox that was prone to fail. I also hate the controllers (unreliable, mushy buttons, analog sticks when most games played better with digital input).
