I'm still in awe...
...at how many batteries I go through.
Gameboy was fine on batteries... untill I played Tetris and Links awakening.
In the end I had to get rechargeable batteries.
Gameboy Tetris still hasn’t been topped.
Head to head, I prefer Tetris DS. They did some very clever things with that (and you can do 2 player from one cartridge too).
Tetris DS felt too bloated for the sake of bloat..
flashy backgrounds, texts saying back to back, a useless second screen, and bad music.
Needing a cartridge for ever player on the gameboy wasn't a problem, because if you didn't have tetris, you didn't own a gameboy.
I still have to get around to tetris effect, but I can wait.
Smashing thru FF8 again, drunk speeling -
Visual scripting tool to make Gameboy games. Comes with an emulator to play in your browser for testing. Pretty amazing stuff.
Found this while looking for USB based controller for a MAME cabinet.
Just expanded my total count of GameCube consoles to 2!
Mango-Tango!! (Jap version)
Probably going to chuck a mod chip in there, so I can save my GC discs. Gun being my fave GC game. Blew me away at the time.
And I am actually not sure, but I bet there is a connection with GUN and RDR.
So much luv to these guys...
Nope, totally separate (outside of "influence").
"Red Dead Redemption" is the second in the "series", with "Red Dead Revolver" as the previous game. That game in turn was actually a Capcom title, designed as a spiritual sequel to the Capcom arcade (and later NES ported) game "Gun Smoke".
Just had an email with this subject arrive - PSIO - Your Order from January 15, 2019 is Complete
Ha yeah I just sent them an angry message about my order. When I contacted them ~ 3 weeks ago they responded with "we'll send it early next week". Nothing. On the 14th I got an email saying the switching thingo was sent - no word on the actual unit, but nothing showed up either way.
I have no issue waiting months for this sort of product but I'm starting to feel shafted on this one.
Tracked down a VA0 Asian Dreamcast, and finished modding my VA9 PAL Saturn w/ modded bios, fram, and region selection, including 50hz/60hz.
Currently trying to figure out how to restore csync to the Saturn, but have no great way to test without risking equipment if I fuck it up.
Most folks just do it in-cable (or at least in the SCART header), with a small LM1881N on the CVBS line. Works for both PAL and NTSC without that dangerous "+9V on PAL pin1" problem.
About 10 years ago I boxed up my Sega Saturn...lately I've been itching to unbox it and perhaps even boot up Virtual On or Sega Rally
Definitely an option, I've heard though you can swap jumper 16 and 17 on the bottom near the a/v swapping the 9v pin to csync, getting it to act as if it was a ntsc console. It would be the best option for me as I already have a wired BNC cable for Saturn NTSC atm.
Ooh that's interesting.
I know there was a lot of infighting between Sega of Japan and Sega of America back in the Saturn days. But whichever goon put +9V on a pin that was csync for other regions deserves a slap.
sega rally is just as good as you remember it, maybe better.
Virtua Racing out on Switch this week, and includes "cocktail cabinet mode" where you can put your Switch down on a table and sit one person at each end for head to head comps:
