Re: Horizon Chase (Switch)

A game it very much is like and takes the majority of its inspiration from is a great sprite scaling racer on the Super Nintendo called Top Gear (No relation to the tv show). The Horizon Chase developers even hired the same music composer as that Super Nintendo game. I just bought this on the PS4 an...

Re: Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection officially announced for everything but for everything but Google Stadia and Atar

Running out of worthwhile classic Mega Man content, but I hope this sells well enough to justify one last collection with the five Game Boy games, Mega Man (Game Gear), Mega Man Powered Up (PSP), and Mega Man & Bass (GBA). Then about all that anyone cares about that's missing from these Legacy C...

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

Outrun 2019 actually is quite good. The gameplay and challenge level is fine, the game offers solid graphics with some special effects that you won't see on any other 16 bit racer (Like racing on an elevated highway while a ground-level road is next to you for scenery), it has a good sense of speed ...

Re: Xbox and Privacy

I can't vouch for it, but I've read that these "mistakes" only happened to users that opted in for allowing Microsoft to utilize their data to improve Kinect voice recognition.

Makes it slightly more palatable if true, but good riddance just the same.

Re: A Sega published game comes to the Nintendo Switch NES Online app!

An odd combination for me would've been Sega on the PS1. It morphed into those lackluster 3D remakes on the Playstation 2 that weren't well received (Helping cement Sega's relationship with M2 when they happily took over the project), but initially the announced aim was to port Saturn games to the o...

Re: A Sega published game comes to the Nintendo Switch NES Online app!

Does seem like an odd combination, doesn't it? Worth remembering though that actual Sega content made it out on the NES and other consoles of the time thanks to Sega not abandoning the American console model of supporting a healthy competitor until the early 1990's. This was all done by licensing co...

Re: Unsupported Video Signal for PS1 games on PS2?

If you use progressive scan in GameCube games for the improved visual quality, I'm not sure that will work. The Retrotink website when I was looking at it a few weeks ago made it sound like a 480p analog component input wasn't able to be converted to a digital 480p output via HDMI with the Retrotink...

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

It's literally twice as good. I say that half seriously because of what sort of an update Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast was. We're not talking about a sequel here, we're talking about a follow-up that essentially took the 15 tracks of the original game, left them as-is, and expanded it with a brand ne...

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

Someone has a nice comparison video up on YouTube.

Other than the ocean in the opening stage of Outrun 2 SP which visually looks much better on the Xbox version, it's tough to tell the two apart.
