Re: Thinking about getting an snes, or perhaps an nes?

Its interesting, its become harder to recommend pure retro gaming like this than back in 2007 when I took a more serious stab at it, and that was thanks to the ease of the Virtual Console. :lol: For me, it was a bootleg emulator disc on eBay. I was living on £60 a week Jobseeker's Allowance at the ...

Re: Thinking about getting an snes, or perhaps an nes?

Probably a lot of things to consider if you're going full on original models. For starters, back in those days most of our games ran slower thanks to 50Hz. If you've been familiarising yourself with NES/SNES on stuff like the Switch which use the 60Hz versions, you might be shocked to find how slow...

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

[*] Oh - it's not the SNES Aladdin on there then? The reason I avoided it was because I thought it wasn't the Megadrive one. :lol: To be honest I was irritated they're charging so much for a couple of roms on a disc in the first place, when it was first announced I assumed they'd be HD remasters, bu...

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

Even though I have Aladdin on the Mega Drive, And Lion King on the SNES I really want this! But I don't think it's gonna go cheaper than the $50 it's on sale for now sadly...which is two expensive in my mind. On the now defunct twice now ol' Aussie XBOX Forum I put together some pictures of this ga...

Re: What are you currently playing?

FINALLY got me an up to date phone, so I've been playing tons of Pokemon Go and various free to play retro SEGA games like Sopnic 1+2, Crazy Taxi, etc.

Speaking of which, could anyone recommend me a good Bluetooth controller that works well with these SEGA Forever games?

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Ring Fit Adventure is another one. It sold beyond Nintendo's expectations when it came out and now that everyone needs it for exercise indoors, it has shot up in price but occasionally returns in stock every now and then, just have to get lucky... ....or go with Fitness Boxing which is digitally ava...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

There's small speculation that because of a certain ongoing virus and the Japanese Ratings Board closing till the end of May that Hamster's Arcade Archive series might soon release some of the games it released on PS4 before the Switch was a thing, as those are already rated and to keep their consis...

Re: Has anyone played the Megadrive Classics collection on Switch?

Thanks for this, I never wanted the Switch edition anyway as I want the XBOX Achievements! :o Does anyone have this game on the XB1 and knows about the GS Available? :?: Is it hard or easy to get achievements may I ask? :?: I just am not liking buying games at the moment with really hard Achievemen...

I'm pretty sure it'll get a DVD release eventually, its just right now its one of the crown jewels in the Disney+ new original programming line up and I'm sure once that library fills up, then they'll put it out on DVD.... ...course with filming suspended on new shows till the virus buggers off, tha...
