Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

Can’t believe I didn’t see this thread. You know me: I love me some Castlevania. Gonna have to listen to this podcast, for sure. I think JLH and I were discussing a SCV4 vs Bloodlines a couple years ago and I revealed that I had switched my opinion on the two. Something like 9 years ago, I did mini ...

Re: Google Stadia is Dead on Arrival!

So you guys know that I’m with you on this— I barely buy games that are digital-only anymore— but I’m gonna play devil’s advocate... just for fun. I believe “Netflix of Gaming” is the future for the medium. I don’t want it to be, but it’s probably where the industry is headed. Microsoft’s Game Pass ...

Re: Component cables for old systems

Two things: Flat screen CRT? I thought that by nature a CRT had a curved screen. Just real quick, CRTs were curved through the 90s, but early 2000’s saw most companies release flat screen CRTs. While I enjoy the look of curved CRTs— it’s also true that many game developers designed their 80s and 90...

Re: Konami planing a TurboGrafx-16 Mini!

NORTH AMERICA GETS RONDO OF BLOOD OR WE RIOT!!! Okay, it’s already confirmed for Japan so we’ll *probably* get it, but still... We gotta have Rondo. Now that I think about it, this is probably why it wasn’t released in Konami’s Castlevania Collection. Whatever. Good on Konami for doing this. The com...

Re: Component cables for old systems

I own the HD Retrovision component cables for Genesis, Saturn, PS1 and SNES. They are excellent! I also own 2 third party/generic component cables for the Saturn— these are the $45 cables + $15 shipping you saw on eBay— and I can tell you they make a world of difference compared to the generic S-vid...

Re: I love the Sega Saturn

Just wanted to drop into the Saturn lovefest. It hasn’t been mentioned but a quick reminder that the Saturn controller is easily the best retro controller ever. The only controller that comes close is the 6 button Genesis controller.... yes, because they’re basically the same. Same d-pad, but the Sa...

Re: Crown Jewel of your collection?

Man, awesome topic and really fun to see people’s responses. “Console:” My custom, 2 player tabletop MAME machine. Many hours of single players shmups and beat em ups and competitive 2D Fighter matches against family and friends. My mint copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga. It’s a great RPG, certainly one o...

HD Retrovision Component cables for retro consoles???

https://www.hdretrovision.com I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with these cables. I just found out about them this past weekend, but I guess they’ve been around for a couple years. They have component cables for SNES and Model 2 Genesis and then some adapters for Saturn, PS1 and Model 1 Ge...

Re: Best Game of this Generation (so far)

@DrLitch - It’s not that I’m not *willing* to get into cRPGs. Honestly, I just haven’t found my “gateway” game. Plus, whatever game that may be, I’m gonna be playing on consoles, as I don’t have a good PC. I own Divinity: Original Sin (just the 1st one) on PS4, but I haven’t even attempted to start ...
