Re: Is there a way to get the old Windows games on a modern PC?

I've actually kept my old XP system because most of the games I still have don't like working with my newer Windows 10 PC. Just because it's "obsolete technology" by many peoples' standards doesn't mean it isn't useful.

Re: Are these knockoff disks? 3.5" Floppy PC Games

Sometimes games get released as budget titles with very basic labels on the discs. I'm guessing that with Doom being just 2 floppies that it's the freeware version where they included the entire first episode (a third of the full game)

Re: From the Forum - Issue 203: The Nostalgia Effect

I answered on the twitter feed - but it's only nostalgia if you actually stopped playing the games which are now deemed "Retro" at some point.

Re: Best DS in 2019?

As others have said, a DS Lite is probably the best all-rounder you can get thanks to the GBA slot - but if you're not afraid of homebrew methods, you should be able to emulate most of them on any of the DSi or 3DS lines - but you'll need to look elsewhere for information on homebrewing those systems.

Re: Just been given a 2DS XL

I came across this video on youtube which seemingly generates a master key for you so that you can get around the parental controls lock.

I've admittedly not tested this so I can't vouch for how reliable it is.

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

For me Delta Force : Urban Warrior was by far the most disappointing game in that franchise I've ever played - it remains - to date - the only game I've traded back into a shop.

Re: PS3 - retro??

For me the PS3 doesn't fit my personal definition of "Retro" - which is at least 2 generations old with no support from the copyright holder.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I picked myself up an Action Replay for the N64 and a neon green GBA - which now gives me 4 normal GBAs in addition to 4 SPs - so that I still have a complete setup for true 4-player 4-Swords, Crystal Chronicles and Pokemon even when the internal batteries for the SP eventually die.

Re: Shooting Gallery Games Recommendations

I'm sure the Wii had a few shooting games (like Link's Crossbow Training), but I'm not sure they would be classed as shooting gallery games. They're definitely in the same vein and a Wii should cheap to pick up now. You'd probably also be able to homebrew it for most other shooting gallery games (Th...

Re: Where can I play the classic game Elite?

There is also "Elite : The New Kind" - which is an unofficial Windows conversion of Elite and available at this site - https://www.new-kind.com/

I believe the GBA version was based on this (and there was a Nintendo DS version as well based off the GBA version)
