Re: Hardware and software collections ???

I usually preferred retro hardware over software, especially some of the Japanese systems (FM Towns, X68000, MSX TurboR). But, software is usually a lot easier to find, and a lot cheaper. I pick up based usually based more on price rather than specific games. Another system that I had was the Super ...

Re: If you had a time machine...

I'd head back to 2012, and see if I could fix... Oh damn it looks like it's worse than I thought.

Re: Game Gadget - How to improve it

No worries. There is one piece of feedback I'd like to give you on licensing games if you haven't realised it already. If you have a decent relationship with the Retro Gamer staff and contributors you're looking at a very good resource for tracking down game owners and license holders. I would sugg...

Re: Game Gadget - How to improve it

maybe because im bitter and dont want it to succeed? Sadly enough that seems to be true. Too many people won't just move on, and seem to be set on bringing the system down. I bought my system when the price dropped, and the trouble was just starting. People were getting fed up with the promises. I'...

Re: Is the PS1 over-rated and do you think its aged badly

Was it overrated? No, there were a lot of decent games on it. Surprises like Poy Poy were amazing, and the more standard games like Diablo were good. Has it held up well? No not really, for 3D games swimming polygons are hard to look at. I believe the PS2 and XBox will hold up a little better, the 3...

Re: Funniest game you've ever played

I'm more likely to be tickled by the slapstick and unpredictability of fast paced multiplayer games. A good game of IK+ with a mate will always raise a chuckle, and I've played 4 player games of Warlords where players have literally been reduced to rolling on the floor. Yeah, Stunt Car Racer with t...

Re: Funniest game you've ever played

The voices and cutscenes in Z were hilarious. I think it made it a little easier to lose when the woman is shouting "you're crap" or the robots are yelling "help, do something!".

This could be an interesting way to read Retro Gamer, once the technology matures a little.

Re: Phillips CDI - The Games

But, that is what really bothers me MOST about the CDi. It was a neat system. It was (at the time) a very original kind of gaming and entertainment system. But, it just failed to live up to any possible potential the system might have had, by having lazy programmers making lazy games in and includi...

I wouldnt buy any packaged games from you as my gaming is strictly with emulators BUT if you did release emulator images to buy i would certainly buy most of these if the games were decent. Hmm, hadn't really thought of that. That would futher reduce the code of the game to around $6 for a CD image...

Homebrew Interest?

Would you consider purchasing smaller homebrew CD games starting at $10 to $13? The supported system would probably include the Sega/Mega CD, Neo Geo CD, Atari Jaguar CD, CD-I, Amiga CD32 and, possibly the Dreamcast. At this price, only the CD with professionally printed label would be included. Mor...

Mario Hotel is a good game, by CD-i standards.
