Re: Less known retro computers to discover

I wouldn't call the Beeb, Atari or TI-99 niche, they were pretty mainstream at the time before everyone moved to Spectrums and C64s (and those few unfortunates lumbered with CPCs). Oric Tangerine would be niche, since it doesn't exist. Tangerine was the company, producing the Oric 1, Atmos and Teles...

Re: Dara O Brian's Go 8 BIT

Dara was a good choice, he's a quick witted comedian who is actually a gamer so knows the subject matter. The problems mainly stem from guests who aren't as clued up.

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

Fair enough, I hadn't realised that was a difference, I thought it was just the AV port change that nullified 480p on some PAL Cubes. FWIW, I played Geist for a while and it didn't hold my attention, this despite quite looking forward to it. The mechanics are too contrived and limited, so it never f...

Re: Gamecube - your favourite title and collecting

I've started to build a modest NTSC collection, managed to recently get Smash Bros Melee for a sensible price. What I'm really after now is Prince Of Persia Sands of Time, but it seems to be the only NTSC POP game nobody in the UK is selling/trading. Fav games were F-ZERO GX , PN03, viewtiful joe, ...

Re: Favourite Resident Evil?

I've never played Resi 3 yet, it's in my pile of shame. I somehow went 1, 2, 4.

Re: Game Room Club

Game Room was a thing on XBox 360, it's long dead.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Gone Girl. One to avoid. Actually thought the film was better than the book ! :) An unusual situation, and one that guarantees I won't be reading the book. Avangers: Endgame was last night. Pretty good, though a bit long, not as good as the hype (as usual). It wasn't quite the movie I was expecting...

Re: Playstation classic arcade table build

Can't argue with that, you did it as cheap as you could for fun and it turned out pretty decent within those limitations. Angling the top was something I had in mind when I saw it, but assumed that was taking the basic table design too far, I thought you'd intended the flat tabletop. It's a good ide...

Re: Playstation classic arcade table build

Nice idea, but could use some refinement. A 4:3 screen would have been nice, but not so easy to get hold of or set up without a lot of faff. Top perspex needs to be bigger, since it stops well short of the edge of the table, it should be the same size. Pads could be better integrated. Needs somewher...

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

I like the Watch Mode idea, including a playthrough you can jump into. Has that been done before in a commercial game?

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

On the other hand, the remastered Mickey game from a few years back worked well.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The preview video on NintendoLife apears to be solid. I've not compared to PC, but then I don't really care for those comparisons anyway. Does it matter if it drops some frames and has some lower quality texture and lighting as long as the general gameplay and approximate visual appearance is 'near ...

Has PS5 been announced, or is that 1-2 years a guess?

Re: N64 Screen Flickering

It would be helpful if you told us which games you actually had problems with, and what you're using to play them (is it real N64 hardware or emulated, are you using a CRT screen or LCD, are they games from your region or imports from another?).
