Quoted from FatPanda:

I've only played SNES games on an emulator.

I've been waiting for this. SNES was the most prominent system of my childhood. I have an SN30 controller, but I haven't had luck in getting it to connect yet (any tips?).

I've seriously considered selling off most of my classic games. They can be emulated in most cases, and there's even new hardware that will allow you to play over HDMI, and with a with a single cartridge (Super NT, SD2SNES). I think I may do that just to preserve as much of the experience as possible, without having to hold onto a huge CRT and a pricey collection of games.

At the same time, even on twitchy games it's hard for me to really notice the difference when properly emulated.

Snes, Megadrive, all the 16 bits era you can sell them for sure. The later generations Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2 mostly have terrible emulations still. I made the mistake of selling these games years ago thinking that emulation would improve and I still hate myself for that.

Yep. Amazing how there's such trouble emulating hardware from 20 years ago.

I don't really own all that much from that era. The stuff I do, I'm not really all that attached to. Most of that 3d era stuff just doesn't hold up as well as the 8bit and 16bit stuff.

One of the things that makes me hang onto the CRT is my intellivision collection. Another big one from my childhood, but I also don't have much desire to play. It will be cool to show the kids on an occasional rainy weekend, but otherwise I don't see myself playing them. The trouble is, the controllers are pretty unique.. maybe a numpad would work, but without those sleeves some games may be tough to play.

#2355 12 days ago

Is anyone able to access the SNES yet on the Switch? I can't seem to get the games to come up.

#2356 12 days ago

Any Cadence of Hyrule fans here? Played through a lengthy 7.5 hour run haha. Definitely not a speed runner but I really enjoyed the game. I'll probably play through it again to see how fast I can just for fun but not for serious. Awesome soundtrack and addictive gameplay. Was on the fence but glad I gave it a try in the demo first, had to buy the full thing.

There is a big trend on mini consoles following the success of the NES and the SNES Mini, the Genesis mini is coming out in a few weeks, then the Turbografx is next in February. They are all emulation based and the result is very clean, but to me the main sell point are the controllers, very close to the original at least until now.
In the jungle of retro systems, the future Polymega (https://www.polymega.com/) looks extremely promising, especially their first demo of a saturn emulator that's hardware optimized with specific controllers for each system. I'm waiting on that one, as it might be the one for all and forever.

Since you mentionned CRT, I had a meeting yesterday at a federal building in San Francisco, they've just dismantled their old surveillance system, I saw a room that was packed floor to ceiling with broadcast grade CRT screens, I tried to enquire on how to buy these but it looks like federal property goes straight to garbage, too bad there was a fortune in there and I was happy to write a check !

One of the Polymega dudes is a friend, and brought the system over so me and my purist picky AF friends could throw our games at it and try whatever we wanted. I was very impressed, especially with performance of Saturn games. I have a Japanese shooter, Soukyugurentai, that doesn’t even run well on a region modded US Saturn (lots of visual glitches) - it runs perfectly on Polymega! I’m gonna check out a newer version soon ...can’t wait to see what’s been tweaked!

I went back to their page, they now have a light gun that works on lcd screens, this just changed my life ! I'm definitely in now, you can tell your friend !

Anyone have a recommendation for a game that’s comparable to Super Mario Oddysey? I have 4 and 5 year old boys and they love watching me play, but we’ve almost exhausted Mario. Zelda is a bit heavy for them, hoping to find another light hearted game.

Check out Spyro trilogy, it's fun to play and to watch, surely not close to Mario Odyssey's perfection, but the bar was set too high anyways.

#2366 11 days ago

Yeah I know. I had a Genesis at the time, so I've played a ton of Genesis games. After that, it was Playstation and so on until I could get a computer good enough to run emulation through my college years. That was the only feasible way for me to play any of the SNES games. For me, it did a plenty fine job and I got to experience all the goodness (and then some) that the SNES had to offer.

Don't forget your free switch online account for 12 months if you have Amazon Prime.

I was really jacked about this. I got into it, and didn't feel like starting anything since I have a save state of anything I'd want to play on another device, or the actual console.

I need to figure out where I'm playing classic games, and commit..

This game is really cool - hack and slash pinball!

Yuka Laylee is pretty good IMO. Not as good as Mario but a collectathon kind of game.

It's not really the same thing, but you/they might like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It's a fun and beautiful platformer, very hard in places but the Switch version has various options that make it easier if you want to use them.

Why bother emulating any of them when it's easier to either hack the native system (as with Saturn), burn CD-R's (with Dreamcast), or put custom firmware on a PS3 (for PS2 games)? Keep using the original controller and peripherals. If for some reason emulation is a must since I guess some of the stuff is cleaned up/upscaled through that, then a decent computer within the past few years seems to run most of those games as well.

The Switch supports Dreamcast and Gamecube emulation too. From what I've tried on it, the games work ok, but I'm not extremely picky about emulators that are still early in their development.

The new Bubsy (cat mascot character from back in the 16-bit era) game might be something they could play. I'm not sure what game originated it, but it's the type of game where the character is always moving across the screen automatically and you have to time the character's jumps, double jumps, or whatever other tricks available to get through a level, ideally picking up all of the objects and power-ups along the way. He's a snarky character that's kinda funny but not dirty humor or anything like that.

holy smokes I just got my copies of The Messenger in from Special Reserve Games. They out did themselves with the packaging! I got a couple of the Limited Run variants as well.

Anybody download Fuze yet? It's a program that lets you make games with a modern BASIC programming language.

I'm pretty impressed with it so far. It has tons of built in sprites and audio you can use, as well as the ability to create your own. You can share you programs with your friends online.
