  1. I had a couple of Jaguars back in the day. A Pal version and an NTSC version. Sadly I sold them before the prices got into silly money territory. However way, way back AvP was an absolutely stunning game. The visuals were amazing for someone coming from a SNES/Megadrive even if the framerate is a bit slovenly these days. The atmosphere alone was worth the price of the Cart. Admittedly today there is no reason to revisit other than nostalgia as the FPS has been done and refined plenty since. I have also over the festive period been dabbling a little with Phoebe (Jag, 3
  2. Yes and this made me break. I'll probably barely play it, but the collector in me loves the idea. Besides its like getting the console itself for free at the 10 pack in price.
  3. The Xbox pad is the reason I did go for the Xbox version, I have the Duke and this will bring back memories of flying to the USA in 2001 to pick up the original Xbox when it came out. It came with some sports title bundled in but I convinced them to let me switch for 2X being English and not understanding USA sports Anyway its sat downstairs while I am "working" in the office. Its a long afternoon.
  4. I'm not sure about this. What I did was just upload Bare Knuckle 3 artwork to my main page. This way it looks more like my physical collection of mixed games anyway. I like that I can play MegaCD and 32X via Emulation Station. Although I am not going to put any other systems on it.
  5. I've often wondered why sega don't do more compilations. The driving compilations (outruns, daytonas, rallys, even Manx tt and touring cars etc) the fighting compilation (virtuas, vipers, last bronx, even megamix) give the genesis games a rest now for a bit.
  6. I got one through indie gogo as well, and I too rate it. I'mean about to contradict myself but as I get older I just want a way to play old games on new tvs. And this helps because although I have hdmi cables for all, my TV won't allow a 4:3 image defaulting to 16:9 but with this I can switch it and get a beautifully enhanced image as well. Not all games are best suited to this. But my PS2 looks amazing with the pound cable and the mclassic.
  7. I have recently got back into Wii U, initially to play DK64 again. Which lead me on a right merry chase as the pal version is terrible. I now have 3 USA machines in addition to my EU one. I installed this hack on my EU one last weekend. Really just to play games from all regions on each machine. I am planning on working on installing the hack on all of them. Although I may also sell a couple of them. I'm not too concerned in the retro goodness as I have a pi. But I do enjoy a good tinker so if I get bored will probably try. Just because. What is everyone having most success with?

    SNES Mini

    Ah that makes sense especially after reading this. the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).

    SNES Mini

    Does anyone know why the box says 20+1 games installed and not just 21 games? Darn it I just missed out on the Nintendo Pre Orders. Guess my Shopto one will have to hold.
  10. Yes I won't be making the same mistake again,. Horrible game!
  11. Well I for one am NOT buying a PS3. Sony have done all they can to really annoy me lately with there stance on imports and outrageous pricing policies. So I am making a stand by not getting one. I know that Sony probably wont miss my £400 odd quid BUT it makes me feel better. All the best games are coming to 360 anyway. I applaud Microsoft for what they have done.
  12. I have the Logitech wireless controllers for my PS2 and Xbox. They are equally as good as a wavebird and also have rumble feature enabled on them. Yea this does cut down on the battery life but its there if you want. Wires are just so 1985.
  13. So the conclusion is? Bit good? Bit rubbish? No-one cares?
  14. I think this is just the sign of a good game. They should be immersive. Thats there aim. I have had this happen, Moreso when playing upclose on my PC Monitor. I think its a good thing.
