Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

The latest video on the channel arrives a bit late thanks to technical difficulties (it was actually supposed to go up after another video - and both of them decided to act up during production. Oh joy!) BUT! Better late than never! And this one's a look back at SUPER R-TYPE on the Super Nintendo. h...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

YES! I love this game, it's so under rated and a big favourite of mine. It might be a Juno First clone but I played this one first, great memories. 😎 And THAT'S the kind of reaction I like to see my videos getting! I only discovered Beamrider fairly recently - last year, I think. But I've been itch...

Re: Octav1us Kitten

Actually, I can corroborate from my interactions with both Sarah and Kieran that they are indeed friends. And very good people. Greyfox - you can brand people 'fakes' and small fry on here all you like. But the fact is, before this thread appeared, I didn't know who you were. After the antagonistic ...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

It took a while to get this one uploaded (LOADS of weird issues with ideo capture, and the video itself came out at a ridiculous size) but the latest game to suffer my exacting scrutiny is MARBLE MADNESS on the Sega Master System. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DsFEI8_XcAI-6pX.jpg Watch it via this lin...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

There's no way they'd make it with an optical drive though. That'd add another ten dollars to the parts cost and increase the failure rate tenfold, all for the sake of a relatively small number of customers who already presumably have other devices to play their existing games on. Similarly, adding...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I really feel conflicted about this product now. Overall, I'm leaning in the direction I stated right at the beginning when this was anounced. It really feels like Sony have have pulled this together quickly to make sure they cash in on the evident demand for these mini consoles. The line up of game...

Streaming only games can do one. There's no way I'm ever supporting that model of delivery to consumers.

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

New vidly-pooz is up tonight, wherein I take a look at the NES conversion of a bona fide pillar of amusement arcades - no less than the ever hungry PAC-MAN! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DqYHotSWwAAdRfo.jpg Two things I'm curious about: 1. Given the HORRIFIC implications of this game, how did it never...

Re: Backwards Compatability

Wow didnt think Orange Box would of made it guess Microsoft must of seen the light That's been backwards compatible for ages, though. I bought a pre-owned copy a good two months back just to play it on my Xbox One. If anything, there's some weirdness going on with the current compatibility list, th...

N64 video capture- can anyone help with this?

Hey folks! Been having a bit of a wrangle (and thats puttingthings mildly) trying to capture N64 gameplay footage for Youtube. This is a bit of a saga, but I was hoping somebody here might be able to advise me where I'm going wrong or what a better solution might be. Basically, it comes down to this...

Re: PS2 - Midnight Club 2

I have 100-ish games in my PS2 set. I recently picked up Midnight Club 2, already having 1 and 3. The game would freeze as the Rockstar "R" started to appear at the very beginning of the game. After cleaning the disc and trying it a few more times I found that it would freeze on the R or at the car...

I just watched the Galaxian (2600) and Asteroids (7800) reviews, good work! You've got yourself a sub! Cheers, fella!

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

Funny you mention that. My 2DS XL came today. I like the system but I noticed there is a white spec under the top screen, it's not noticable most of the time but if you shine a light on it you can see it clearly. I'm going to see if I can get a replacement before I start using it. Agh! Bad luck! I'...
