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...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

I just watched the Galaxian (2600) and Asteroids (7800) reviews, good work! You've got yourself a sub! Cheers, fella! I just spotted your comment on the channel and approved it (tons of spam a while back and a couple of pathetic trolls mean that everything gets held in moderation until I okay it, a...

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'...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

New posty-post for this week's review, wherein I break from the norm and review a book. Namely, the XCOM spin-off novel XCOM 2: RESURRECTION.

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

So despite me looking to downsize my 3DS/DS game collection in my trade thread, I'm still considering picking up a second 2/3DS. Anyone had any experience of the 2DS XL? Would you reccomend it? I bought a white and orange 2DS XL last week. Been saving my small change for AGES and I finally had enou...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Had to take a short break from videos to accommodate EGX, some freelance work and a bit of devious plotting for the future. But there's a fresh retro review up right now, of BATTLESHIP for the Nintendo Gameboy. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpLVEVSWwAE01Bc.jpg Review link: https://youtu.be/KFdJDV8c5DE...

XBox 4, surely?
For now I'm calling it the XBox Whatever as none of us will guess its random name like the last 2. :lol:
I'm guessing Microsoft'ss next console will be the Xbox One X 1 triple XXX decaffienated half X. With a twist of lemon.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Under a fiver a game is hardly a lazy cash grab. Buy a PS1 and 20 quality games, you could easily blow a lot more than the £90 asking price. This isn't a disc based system with the problems those incur, and it has HDMI out. You could indeed, but I wouldn't bank on most folks thinking about picking ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

It's nice that Sony are putting some classic PS1 era games in a self contained package, with two controllers (reportedly.) But I'm not as excited for this as I hoped I'd be when the day inevitably rolled around. There are some unknown quantities here. The controllers will need to be decent quality, ...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

As much as I'm RAPIDLY losing patience with the Nintendo Switch (overpriced games because they're on cartridges yet the games are still incomplete, dodgy ports, general Nintendo idiocy, etc) that Megadrive collection does sound interesting. I'd much rather have something like that on the Switch than...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

New video is up - and this is probably the biggest game I've covered to date. Certainly the biggest video I've uploaded yet! Agh! My poor broadband connection! This week, I look at HALO: REACH on the Xbox 360. https://img00.deviantart.net/e59b/i/2018/256/5/b/halo_reach___xbox_360_by_hde2009-dcmqoh4....

Re: Backwards Compatability

I actually bought an Xbox One last year JUST to play Xbox 360 games. I've since been cajoled into forking out for genuine Xbox One exclusives and things like the Halo Master Chief Collection. But an Xbox One with external 2TB HD LOADED with old 360 games? Bliss, right there! I do wish Sony would tak...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've been loaned a PSVR headset while a pal is on holiday. He was even kind enough to give me his copy of The Persistence to fiddle with. Despite assuring me that there were a ton of comfort options, I think its safe to say I can't cope with VR. After one session where I came way feeling a bit giddy...
