Re: Let's talk Wii U: Best Games, Wii Transfer, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I should also add that the transfer sounding complicated when I read about it, but really simple after watching a YouTube video. I had no issues. One thing I did out of an abundance of caution was remove almost everything from the Wii's dashboard like VC downloads. I figured the less data there was ...

Re: Let's talk Wii U: Best Games, Wii Transfer, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild

There are two cons to doing the data transfer from the Wii to Wii U. One is that if you ever decide to connect your Wii U to a CRT, 240p mode is absent in Wii Virtual Console titles since the Wii U hardware lacks 240p support. They will run in 480i or 480p only, where as on original Wii hardware the...

Re: Sony Playstation Classic, $99 US, 12/3

Ignoring all the controversy over the game selection, the final verdict as I read about this seems to be poor quality emulation, lack of options like scanlines, and a bizarre choice of slow 50 hz PAL versions for many of the included games. On the plus size, the overall package looks nice, the front...

Re: Xbox HL2

I wasn't aware of any level changes to Half-Life 2 on the original Xbox. Must be pretty subtle since it's the first I've heard of it. I'll have to keep my eyes open since I want to give it a spin soon after only playing the 360 and PC versions for the better part of 15 years now, since first playing...

Re: PS2-Activision Anthology

If you haven't already, try changing the left difficulty switch. If I don't have it all backwards in my mind, I believe the game defaults to not being able to hit the ball at sharp angles, making it tougher to score on an opponent. Just don't change the right difficulty switch, since then the AI pla...

Re: Xbox HL2

It's still a great conversion. Very impressive what the original Xbox was able to do. People that never played it decided later on that the frame rate was horrible, but as someone that did play through it, I didn't think so. Wasn't silky smooth at all times, but ran well and never turned into a slid...

Re: Quick reviews of my Switch collection

17). Bad Dudes Meh. D+ What do you think of the emulator itself? I'm not too fond of there being a blur filter even when you select no filters. Flying Tiger Entertainment doesn't understand their audience with these classic Data East arcade games. Anyone that doubts me should see the blurry stretch...

It's not on the backwards compatibility list.

Re: New Atari Portable?

I don't recall seeing a new portable unit though. The only two I am aware of are the one with Frogger and the one with PacMan. The initial 2016 release had Frogger prominently displayed on the front of the package. The 2017 release had Pac-Man displayed. Both are shown below. https://i.ytimg.com/vi...

Re: New Atari Portable?

Happened upon an AtariAge thread not long after posting, and it was about that European Atari portable. Sounds like it had so many issues that it wasn't actually released after all a year or more ago, and was being viewed as vaporware until recently when it started to make its way out finally in Eur...
