Re: Which Dreamcast?

Thanks for you help Silver, I appreciate you going to the trouble of digging that out. Well, it didnt help me with getting my tv to display the image but I kept messing around with the cables and I got it working by using Scart socket 1 on the back of the TV instead of Scart socket 2. Socket 2 wont...

Re: Xbox One Mouse And Keyboard Support: The Potential

Mouse has been around on consoles forever. The Atari 2600 has a trackball, PS1 has a mouse, pretty much every generation has supported it on one system somehow. Still the best for FPS on the big screen. Doesn't need to be tied to a desk, I can play with a trackball on my sofa (no need for a flat sur...

Re: PS5, XBOX2

I think they'll be aiming to capture older gamers who have drifted away from gaming a bit with the XBox 081 811 8181.

Re: Xbox One Mouse And Keyboard Support: The Potential

It won't make any significant impact. Anything other than the controls supplied with the system never do.

It does mean there's scope for retro PC games to be ported though, possibly using some DOSbox variant. If that happened, and someone like GoG got involved, it could be good.

Re: Your favourite Ben Daglish music

I'll pick just one, Trap, not for the in-game music but for the demo track. Still remains incredibly atmospheric and a perfect fit for the on screen actions, running through several emotions. One of my go to SID tunes.

Worst subs cover yet imo.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Destruction Derby 2 would be well worth including. It played very well as a racing game, where actually learning to drive helped progress (use the brake in a racing game!) and still looks pretty good. It's far better than the original. Never did play anything that followed though.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I can't see Die Hard making it one, one for licensing reasons, two because it would take too much to get some sort of gun control (let's face it, nobody wants to play Die Hard 2 with the pad and it's the section that has aged least).

Re: Renting videotapes

Will the difference be that noticeable on a screen that size? The difference between SD and HD wasn't significant until you had a screen that was 42" or larger, perhaps 49" is at the low end of the scale to see the difference from HD to UHD.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

We did get two FIFAs, Rocket League, Mario Tennis Aces and NBA 2K1x. And the horrendously bad Legendary Eleven and WWE 2K18.

There's some old stuff too, like Football Frenzy, Super Sidekick 3 and Turf Masters.

Quite a bit of sports gaming there.

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Is a Vectrex even a possibility? Is there anyone making vector monitors these days? Without the proper monitor, it just wouldn't be the same.

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

GameCube! Give me Eternal Darkness, Lost Kingdoms 1/2, Baldur's Gate DA 1/2, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime 1/2 and the awesome Star Wars shooters and I'll be happy ;) And why not include a few GBA games too? It would be an easy way to extend the catalogue on it without taking up mu...
