I loved Jumping Flash & Mr. Driller! ...but I had Mr. Driller on Dreamcast.

#1853 18 days ago
Quoted from Rascal_H:

Sweet, excited to relive Twisted Metal and Final Fantasy.
I need to figure out a better way to have my NES Classic, Super NES Classic, and PSX Classic all hooked up and easily accessible. Some kind of HDMI switcher.

I got a pretty basic HDMI "multi-tap" on Amazon a while back...it automatically switches to the input of the device that's turned on, so you don't even have to manually switch.

#1854 18 days ago

no Castlevania Symphony of the Night ?

#1855 18 days ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

This is another Ouya, with an irrelevant retro brand attached to it.

Agreed. If it ain't Nintendo (or maaaaaaybe Atari) nobody cares.

#1856 18 days ago

The only picture I ever found of my old Commodore setup operating The Market Place BBS on Color 64 BBS software.
And played LOTS of games from the "warez" collected. (:
The fan cooling off the hard drive and 'brick' power supply!

Do you remember which exact one you bought?

#1858 18 days ago

I just finished playing the NES version of Bionic Commando. I played that game back in 1990 and had just as much fun this time around. For pure enjoyment the gameplay of the NES classics are hard to beat. I actually prefer them to my Switch.

Mr. Driller on Playstation is kind of rare (I do have a copy though).

Quoted from Rarehero:

I have both Mr. Driller for Playstation and Gameboy Color, but I'm looking for copies for Dreamcast and Wonder Swan.

#1860 18 days ago

The I have mr driller on my MAME cabinet, it’s a fun game.

I don’t know how well the mini PlayStation classic sell. The polygon graphics don’t stand the test of time like pixelated games do. I think their (Sony) biggest mistake was not including dual shock controllers. A lot of the games that I want to see on a PlayStation mini really need that analog stick to control.

Even if this machine is easy to hack and add games onto, it still is lacking good controls

#1861 18 days ago

yeah, it's an interesting piece of hardware, but you are correct. the dual shock controllers are what truly separated the [launch] playstation into what it became

some of the games still stand up well (the original crash and spyro for example), while others show their age quite obviously (toshinden, tekken 3 come to mind) due to the low frame rate and polygon counts. technological feats in their time? yes, but not compared to today's games

and while I think that many people have fond memories of the saturn, n64 and playstation, it wasn't necessarily the early titles that they remember as the [great] titles

I still have an early beta copy of spyro (I authored the official strategy guide) that didn't support the analog sticks and god, what a pain in the ass it was to control that little dragon

$100 pickup today! Been wanting one for a while, but couldn't justify the $300+ these things bring. This lady had it up on OfferUp for $500 last week and $100 this week. Said she had lists of interest in it and full price offers, but no one showed up to pick it up. So she priced it to sell. Luckily I pulled up OfferUp 10 minutes after she posted it. She said her phone was blowing up.

*edit. And wait. Did I also get a rare game? Came with Pirates Gold and Streets of Rage 1. I didn't really care about the games since I already had SoR, but wasn't familiar with Pirates. Looking online, doesn't seem those are going for $2.

Very nice. I'd love one of these to recover some shelf real estate and nix one power brick from the mess of wires I have. I just can't bring myself to shell out the money they're commanding when my Gennesis1/Sega CD model 1 works so great. Plus it looks amazing sitting on the shelf as well.

#1865 10 days ago
Quoted from j_m_:

I've already got them. Still have my 30+ games for the Genesis, 32x, and CD from the 90s.

#1866 10 days ago

Awesome score man. I have manuals but no system.
One dude was picking up at my work. We both know games and go to auctions. But he got a killer cd and 32x lot he showed me... and wouldn't sell me any of it

#1867 10 days ago

Got a couple of Neo Geo X handhelds + consoles that have been jailbroken.
Turns them into retro paradise.
If anyone might be interested in 1, I don't really need 2.

I remember having the whole mess of wires. I had and still have my 1st gen Genesis, 32x, and 2nd gen Sega CD. Really wish I had the 1st gen CD. Those were cool looking.

#1869 10 days ago

I dont understand how every single second hand console and controller has SOOOOO much grime on and in them. People. Wash your hands.

Taken apart both the controller and CDX and given them a bath. They're going to look as good as new. No major or minor scratches on them. Just looked like the system had been in a crud storm. Even the inside of the lid was disgusting.

Also ordered a new laser. Pre-test before taking it apart seemed that it was pretty spotty at reading the disc.

If you’ve gone that far, re-cap it while it’s apart and you’ll never have to worry about it again.

Yeah, the wire mess is pretty bad. I have 11 systems, 2 automatic switchers, the audio receiver and the monitor all plugged into power strips. And the Genesis and Jaguar each have 2 adapters. Then, I have all the AV cables and a final breakout to the receiver. It’s a tangled nightmare back there.

I came back here just to ask that. I came across someone who'd done that, and found a kit to replace them. I know with pinball sound boards need to be recapped, but was curious what all they effect here. Sound was working from the standard bootup music for the CD. But I'm not entirely sure the cartridge portion is working. I didn't plug it into a TV yet, so not sure what, if anything is on the screen, but I couldn't get any sounds from trying to play a cartridge game.

But this was exactly my thoughts. Already torn apart. New Laser on the way. May as well rebuild everything while I'm at it.

#1874 10 days ago

Maybe it's already been mentioned on here but if you're a fan of the Castlevania series you MUST watch the new show on Netflix!

It's basically the characters of Castlevania 3 with the backstory and motivations from Symphony of the Night. Easily the best video game adaption by a country mile.

The caps from the 90's era systems are notoriously bad. They can just fail outright or leak and corrode boards. Depending on the system, they can cause a range of issued in both sound and video circuits. Some of these CDX units that aren't reading discs are repaired with just a recap. I've never had one or worked on one myself, but I've been reading a lot about repair since I'll probably have to snag a broken one to get a decent price. Most of the repair stuff I have read about so far is capacitor related. Very few instances of an actual failed laser.

This arrived in the mail yesterday. It's the first time I've ever messed with one. It's surprisingly awesome...

Quoted from djreddog:

Lots of you tube videos on this. Not very many good reviews

#1882 9 days ago

So I picked up the NES and SNES Classic and loaded them with my favorites. My favorite aspect of the systems is playing with the original controller and not clunky 3rd party crap.

So now that I’m good with Nintendo, I’ve been exploring a Sega version. The ATGames versions are garbage, so I decided to build my own with the Genesis USB hub from NerdBlock.

The raspberry pi fits perfectly, so my plan is to make my own Genesis console complete with the original controller. Tons of tutorials out there, so it shouldn’t be too cosmic.

It's excellent & very faithful to the Konami art style as well. My only complaint is that they don't use the iconic game music at all in the score. Not sure if there was a rights issue or if it was a creative decision, but it's a bit of a bummer...those soundtracks and certain classic riffs are the soul of Castlevania.

Agreed. I finally got around to watching Season 2 the other day and I was sad when it ended, it was so good. Here's to hoping they greenlight a third season.

While I would have liked to have heard more classic 'Vania tunes, I do enjoy the soundtrack, particularly for Season 2. That said, Bloody Tears is featured pretty heavily near the end of Season 2.

Oh good - I only watched the first ep of season 2 so far.

#1886 8 days ago

Yeah no music was my biggest beef until the penultimate episode in season 2 episode 7..... Joy!

Really wish a good Neo Geo retro.... Thing would eventually be made.

I watched it and last season cause im a castlevania fan. But laughed my ass off when my brother in law who isn't a gamer was telling me about it without know it was a game series. I took him straight to my Nintendo made him play.

he denies its anime because he's to manly lol
He really liked it and binged the series without knowing it was a game. Which is pretty cool and shows how good it is.

Well, it is produced in the US which I guess technically makes it not “anime” in the traditional sense of being produced in Japan.

BJ's had 2 pallets full. $23 each. The cabinets and details look great. My only concern is that they are the Nintendo version of the games and not the actual arcade version. They do look cool though!

#1894 4 days ago

Does anyone have any Nintendo playchoice arcade carts or parts for sale? I’m looking for anything playchoice.

thanks. no bj's here in michigan
btw, I've heard that each series actually has all of the games on every machine. each board is hardwire jumpered as to which game is booted up to. so, if you were to take it appear and put in a little [x] way toggle switch, you could play all of the games on one machine
