Re: What anime are you watching thread

Oh I found my back-ups of my old Cyber City Oedo VHS'. Proper old school Manga Video nostalgia for me. I loved Cyber City Oedo 808 at the time. I remember finding it on VHS second hand for £8 in a record store in Edinburgh and being very pleased at the price. I finished One Punch Man season one yes...

Re: N64 mini pix leaked

Having previously owned a import N64. If this does ever see the light of day I hope it runs in 60hz. The 50hz none RGB euro console was shocking. Going by the NES and SNES Classics, I'd think it a given that it'll output at 60Hz via HDMI with scaling to at least 720p. Let’s hope so. I would certain...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Yeah I think the reaction has been a bit over the top. One he doesn’t own the rights but I still get why he would be upset. But let’s think about it. Anyone who is buying the book would most likely of known about the origins of that image and not sat there thinking about how much money that image is...

Really? Any idea how to access the hidden menu? Nothing on Google that I found.
Sorry for the delay as I couldn’t find my DC-X straightaway.

I have put up a photo of the instructions.

Re: Which Dreamcast?

RGB it is It maybe the TV doesn’t like the signal the DC is outputting. My main tv is a Panasonic plasma and it hates it with a RGB scart. Picture is all over or doesn’t come on among other things. Put it on our tiny LG led and it’s fine. The DC-X disc does have a hidden menu where you can force a ...

Re: top 3 ds games

1. Mario kart. Played insane amounts of multiplayer with this game. 2. Castlevania portrait of ruin. It was quite a while since last playing a Castlevania game. Once I picked it up I could not put it down until I had done everything. 3. Chrono trigger. I know it never originally came out on the DS. ...

Re: Which Dreamcast?

It's dead easy to play imports on too - either burn your own or use a boot disc if you want to play official releases. You can make a boot disc yourself from online resources or buy a disc called DC-X which I find to be a wee bit more dependable. Davy, I bought one of the DC-X CD's off ebay and it ...

Re: Renting videotapes

Depending on your viewing distance you would really need a 55”+ screen. Also you have to take compression into account. Dvd and 1080p quality streams are about the same as their disc based equivalent. 4K is a different beast altogether. The compression is high so even though it looks great it’s actu...

Re: Which Dreamcast?

Guys I have another techy question about the Dreamcast. I have a CRT TV running @ 100Mhz and the light guns wont work on it. I am guessing they dont work on anything over 60Mhz. Could anyone confirm that? Yep you are correct. They don’t work on 100hz TVs due to refreshing too quick if my memory ser...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I would like it if they surprised us and stuck a couple of never before released games on it. Like 'Thrill kill'? Yeah why not. The only things missing were the endings. Question is will they put much adult rated stuff on it. Even if most adult rated games from the day are soft as censored compared...

Nintendo did with star fox 2. And I’m sure Sony must have one or two games in the vaults that were finished but never released for what ever reason.

Certainly would drum up even more interest in the unit.

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

A mini Sega Saturn with Shinobi X, Burning Rangers, Deep Fear and Shining Force would be a day 1 purchase. I would say Elevator Action but it’s a jap only game. Knowing Sega it would be Sega Rally, Virtual Fighter and the same Megadrive games that appear on every other collection A 3d0 mini would b...
