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)

Re: N64 mini pix leaked

I'd love to see the N64 mini become a thing- but I don't see some of the best titles on the system making it over due to the Microsoft buyout of Rare.

Re: Recommended games for 3 or more simultaneous local players

The N64 was perfect for multiplayer games and has a wide selection of games.

On the SNES, Superbomberman with a multitap was epic. There were also a few games on the original Playstation that used a multitap as well.

Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

To me the PS3 is definitely not "retro". My own view on what is or not retro is that is MUST be at least 2 generations old with no support from the copyright holder. As such, at present the Wii is NOT Retro - at least until the end of the month when they shut down ALL the online services for the sys...
