Re: What ever happened to arcade style racing games?

Besides Onrush there's Grip (spiritual successor to the Rollcage games), Trailblazers (arcade racer with Splatoon-like ground painting mechanic), and (coming next month) Dangerous Driving (spiritual successor to the Burnout games). None are particularly high-profile games, but I hope to pick-up one ...

Re: The 55 dollar question...

Apparently, I have a weird compulsion to mess with small computing devices. Got a Raspberry Pi Zero W with case (delivered today from Amazon.) Guess this changes the subject of the post to the "$26 Question"... Got it up and running with Raspbian OS. Haven't tried Retro Pie yet, but guessi...

Re: Space Ace (3DO)

I would have to agree. Dragon's Lair and MACH 3 (don't think it was ever ported to home) were huge. Then folks realized that the games weren't really much fun, they just looked cool. I don't remember actually seeing a Space Ace arcade game, only pix in Electronic Games (or one of those old mags - El...

Re: The 55 dollar question...

Have had some time to mess with the Pi/RetroPie. Fun little computer, amazing what it can do considering it's size and price. Plays 2600, Colecovision, C64,7800, NES, SMS, Genesis, SNES, Gameboy, GBA, and Lynx great. Jaguar emulation is pretty bad, N64 is spotty. Haven't tried Neo Geo, PS1, or MAME ...

Found a typo. First sentence is missing the word "this".

Re: The 55 dollar question...

Well, ended-up getting a Raspberry Pi with a case. Installed the Raspbian OS on one micro SD card, and RetroPie on another. I'm sure you could install both on one card and choose which one to boot to, but I like the separation of "business" and "fun." Runs fine, neat little compu...

The 55 dollar question...

If you had $55 just burning a hole in your pocket, which option would you choose (and why)... 1. A PS1 Classic 2. A C64 Mini 3. A Raspberry Pi 3B+ with case/fan I know the PS1 Classic has gotten a lot of grief, but the collector in me kind of wants one. The C64 could be fun, as much for hooking up a...

Re: VGA to HDMI for Dreamcast

Could it be? Yes! Another episode of "How to Get Better Output From Your Old Consoles! Cheap!!" The situation this time involved an original Xbox and component cables that looked fine in the living room "alpha setup" but looked sort of crummy on the "beta setup's" 32&qu...

Re: Music!

Guess they are mostly licensed music, but Jet Grind Radio/Jet Set Radio Future have some cool tracks.

Also, love cranking-up the surround sound for a round of Rez HD.

Very basic Raspberry Pi questions..

I'm Raspberry Pi 3B+ curious. I get that it doesn't come with an OS, but not sure if you need Raspbian (or some Linux distro), or just Retropie for emulation. Any info/suggestions would be appreciated.
