    Nintendo Switch

    Have tried a Hori VLX (PS4) and a madcatz SFxT (PS3) with a Switch via a brooks converter. They work fine.

    Just tried. Doesn’t turn the machine on. Also, don’t test it with Devil Engine, it doesn’t like it for whatever reason.

    Remember to turn on wired comms in the settings menu of the Switch if you've gone 2.4hz.

    Just tried USF2 on Switch, wired with the M30. Felt great. If it’s any indication, I could pull off supers easy peasy, which I struggle with on a stick (because i’m shit).

    I haven’t tried it as I managed to get the 2.4ghz version. The D-pad feels damned good though, like I said, pretty much identical to the Saturn D-pad (but on a Megadrive styleeee controller). Plastics are nice and buttons feels very Saturny too.

    I have one. The D-pad is splendid (essentially its the Saturn's dpad). Just make sure you don’t get the 2.4hz version if you want to use it with the Switch.

    I’m liking Devil Engine. But i’m pretty sure i’ll never see past the first boss (the one that kicks up debris). So hard (and I ain’t credit feeding, no way). I do wish the blue blue laser didn’t feel so much like it felt like a long blue bar. I know that’s exactly what it is but it’s something that just feels a little off. Red and Green are fine though.

    Devil Engine looks sweet as hell though (Switch). Edit: this is class!! Brutal. But class.

    Ultra Street Fighter IV

    100% can’t remember how to play (had a below average Chun and Dudley at one point) but would def be up for some games (PS4). Also would be over the moon to get some Super Turbo in (30th anni version).

    This is a shame. Checked the trailer out and it looks pretty cool. Can you play online versus friends or just randoms? This is the kind of game where you'd think cross plat would be beneficial to keep the "rival" count up.
  11. 100% Double Dragon, Afterburner and Operation Wolf (and probably Thunderblade to a slightly lesser extent) releases on the C64. I was absolutely obsessed with these four games and was desperate to have a version of them in my home. I’d probably only be 11 years old or something at the time and was obviously oblivious to the fact that the C64 had pretty much no hope of doing these justice. Which is partly right, because Double Dragon and Afterburner were fucking horseshite (I still have the poster that came with Afterburner somewhere). Surprisingly Thunderblade wasn’t too bad and Op Wolf was actually a damn fine conversion all things considered. Its odd that this obsession in some small part still persists today. I’m always buzzed to play these games (3DS ports of AB and Thunderblade were super good) and I’ve lost count of the times I’ve bought DD. I remeber getting Sega Ages Vol 1 on the Saturn and my jaw hitting the floor at finally (FINALLY!!!) having a 100% accurate version of Afterburner. I had a 29” Trinitron CRT at the time. My 11 year old self’s brain would have melted at the prospect. Happy times man. i deffo relate to @Alex W.with obsessing over MGS2 n’all. I think I bought a Jpn dvd release of the original trailer thingy (jumping off the bridge in the rain) for like £30 I was THAT desperate to see the game.

    @Mrs HorriblemanDont forget Psyvariar. (All of the Psikyo stuff is solid) When is Devil Engine due for release? Watched a few vids yesterday and I like the look of it.
  13. They need to jump on the Exa-Arcadia bandwagon and get their shooter stuff on it.

    Another slight limitation I put on myself is that I don’t like autofire (unless it’s part of the mechanics, like Garegga I guess). I kinda love bashing away on the buttons (oyoy!), part of the enjoyment, even if it gets tiring.

    Shmup? Blimey, difficult one. I dont think I have one. I’ve always loved them, I know that much. I remember loving watching peeps play Thundercade down the arcades in South Shields, and I think from there I’ve always loved them. Probably a bit left field but if I was stuck on a desert island and there was bizarrely a working arcade machine on the beach (that was waterproof and had a solar powered generator) with one shmup, I’d choose Galaga 88. Love that game. So jolly/cute without lapsing into vomit inducing. (Stylistically I love esprade, for what it’s worth. I think it was @breaksmithwho introduced me to that) @Mrs Horriblemanwhat’s your fave then? (And anyone else.) And what was your gateway?
