Re: PS2 - Midnight Club 2

Yeah it’s annoying. Both my copies of Prince of Persia on the Game Gear create a horrible screen flicker. Only with that game. Similarly my Metal Slug cart on my NGPC stopped playing properly, sprites were visible but backgrounds and platforms were all messed up making it unplayable. Bought a replac...

Re: Any super famicom collectors?

I saw Super Streetfighter 2 go for under £4 on Ebay recently. Can't go wrong with that. I've ended up with about 30 top titles on the SFC that would not have been an option on the SNES I do find that some Capcom games flicker on the SFC, usually it's the shadow under the character that flickers.

Re: Game within a game

My friend always maintains that there is a mini battleship / depthcharge style game hidden in Exhaust Heat 2 for the SFC.

I've never found it and he says he can't remember how to get to it.

Re: The price of retro

Paid about 60 quid for a mint copy of Castlevania SOTN 3 years ago. Seen a couple of Ebay auctions lately hitting £127 and £153.

Re: Bullcrap gaming stories you heard as a kid

I've mentioned this one before - in a bid to try and keep up with my SNES owning friends back in 1993 I excitedly announced that Mode 7 rotation was "coming out for the Amiga soon". To back up this claim further I even strategically left a pair of blank floppy disks in my room for my friends to noti...

Re: Nintendo Super Scope

Thanks for the reply gunbladelad. The good news for me is that the scope worked fine with the SFC.

The bad news is I'm finding Yoshi's Safari a tad difficult.

Nintendo Super Scope

Quick question - will a PAL scope work with a Japanese Super Famicom?

Re: Will the I Pad and I Phone replace consoles

An example of what I'm saying is, Virtua Tennis on the iPad is certainly worth no more than £2.99, while I was more than happy to pay £7 for the Vita version.

Re: Wonderswan games

I have a Wonderswan Colour with a nice version of Tetris, which I suspect I'll be flogging soon.

Re: Will the I Pad and I Phone replace consoles

As an iPhone 4S / iPad 2 owner I think I'll be changing over to Android this year (I've already picked up a new Nexus 7 tablet which is pucker).

As for phone / tablet games I really don't see them as much more than novelty value. You get what you pay for as they say.

Re: Why do you love the GameBoy?

The first time I clocked a Gameboy was in 1991 during a foreign exchange trip. A few of the German kids had them on the coach and were glued, while I just dismissed them as the naff Game & Watch efforts that I'd seen previously. After 5 seconds playing Super Mario Land I was hooked, and unfortunatel...

I have a PS4 on order with Gamestop. One of my flatmates is in the same boat and claims they are getting more stock at the end of this week.

Re: Remember "TMNT Tournament Fighters"?

Question - I've got an American SNES cartridge of this game that I can play on my action replay converter. But the problem is that the shadows under the fighting characters flicker continuously throughout. Why would this be? I'm probably going to flog this game on but don't want to sell anything tha...

Re: Atari Jaguar

Awful awful system, games and controller. The only positive thing I can say about it personally is that I made a small profit when selling on my bundle last year.
