Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

I kind of scoffed at the idea of getting a stand-alone 3/4 arcade machine at first, but I have to say I’m pretty impressed with most of Arcade1up’s efforts. I’d really like to get the TMNT and Marvel machines... but they’re both pretty crazy expensive.

Re: N64 Games That Stand The Test Of Time

You guys said most that I would say. With one exception: I didn’t see anyone recommend F Zero X . (Apologies if someone did!) Nintendo actually made a smart technical decision on a first party N64 game and went with frame rate over graphics and it’s SO much better for it. It may not be the most visu...

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

I found a complete Wii console (all hook ups, sensor, power supply, etc) for $10. They sold the Wiimote and nunchuck separately for $5, so $15 for all. I took it home hooked it up and found it hadn’t been used since 2008. Not only was it in mint condition cosmetically, but it had also barely been us...

Well, I’ll be...

Being wrong never felt so good. :lol:

That’s great about Deadly Premonition and Tokyo Mirage. Not sure why they weren’t on Amazon, but I don’t really care as long as I can get them physically.

The latest Nintendo Direct shows great upcoming games, but exposes a PROBLEM for game collectors...

Tons of games are coming to Switch. https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/09/04/everything-announced-at-the-september-4-nintendo-direct Some surprises include the following: SNES...

Re: what are your favorite remakes or sequels?

I like remakes that modernize the game’s visuals and mechanics but still stay true to the original. Ratchet and Clank (PS4) and Resident Evil 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) are two that come to mind. But I can also appreciate remakes that take the time to fix problems with the original. Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA...

Re: What age should I introduce my daughter to video games?

I’m perhaps a little qualified to answer this, as I have a boy and a girl ages 10 and 9, respectively. I don’t see this as really any different than any other medium, to be honest. When I was a young parent, people were still really into Baby Einstein videos. Yet all the research I’ve looked at does...

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...
