Re: Component cables for old systems

Two things: Flat screen CRT? I thought that by nature a CRT had a curved screen. And question two: Scart cables. I've done a bit of research for them and from what I'm seeing that is a European thing? They are much cheaper than other options, but they look weird and I'm simply not sure I understand ...

Re: In Praise of Short Games

As I've aged, and wanted to do more and different hobbies I've also found a greater appreciation for short games. I love RPGs as well, so this is a difficult one. But I do think more poorly of a really long game. I've been having issues with completing Wizardry 8 for example, which is a 100+ hour ga...

Re: 2019/5/30: Game Boy: Super Mario Land, Duck Tales

You know, maybe an A+ is pushing it, especially given how great Wario Land the the later Super Mario Lands are on the Gameboy, but it is still an A game. Maybe not A+, but certainly an A or A-. I feel it still holds up today. /Have no clue what happened to my gameboy and gameboy collection. I swear ...

Re: Maintenance on old systems. (Dreamcast specifically)

I also happen to have a really fancy looking disc cleaner/resurfacer kit, anyone had luck with those? I remember once upon a time one of my friends had one and it destroyed most everything he used it on, so I've been hesitant to try.

Maintenance on old systems. (Dreamcast specifically)

Hello VGC forum world. Thanks for being a great source of information, you guys have answered all sorts of questions for me over the months since I've joined up, and I have another one today. I've been playing my Dreamcast lately, rediscovered my love for MvC2, and the system has a really hard time....

Re: Super Mario Land (GB)

I too have really fond memories of this game, was one of the few I owned on the Gameboy for the few years I had it as a kid. (I wonder what ever happened to it? I don't remember getting rid of it, it just... vanished. Probably my mom gave it to Goodwill without my knowledge. She was like that.) Betw...

Re: Component cables for old systems

Do the HDMI set ups support light gun games? I thought those required curved CRT tvs. While the N64 and SNES I don't have anything on, (and I don't have a working NES, though the one I have in storage is the original toaster model) my saturn and dreamcast have light gun games that I enjoy very much....

Re: Component cables for old systems

Thanks on the HDretrovision link! That is exactly what I'm looking for! They have every system I need except Dreamcast, and they say they are developing it, so maybe by the time I set the money aside they'll have it done. I'm totally stoked to upgrade my Dreamcast and SNES from old school RF switche...

Component cables for old systems

After looking for a long time, I've found a CRT TV with component (RGB) capability. Now I don't have any connections for my old systems yet, but it's definitely something I'm looking at. And wow, they are expensive. A sega saturn one, (and not official) is 45 on ebay. Gamecube are 100 or more! I cou...

Re: What systems do you want to see more reviews for?

I have a strange interest in the oddball systems of the 90's. Jaguar, 3DO, Saturn, CD-i, etc. I also enjoy reading the reviews on the older 70's and 80's systems. Things I don't own, (Other than Saturn) that are older I find intriguing.
