Re: !! MAME is back in the App Store (iOS) - for now...

I take it the IOS device does not need to be jailbroken?
Do you just edit the apps contents and resync it?

Your Gaming History

Recently as part of my college course we were asked to briefly go through our gaming history as way of an introduction to the rest of the group, my intro wasn't at all brief but I enjoyed writing it. Maybe of little interest to anyone else, but here's a transcript of the video game section of my int...

Re: 16Bit game coverage

Being a child of the late 80s early 90's I'd love to see more 16bit coverage, and 16 bit, in all honesty is as retro as I tend to go. The MD was my first console but my heart lies with the Snes. So for totally selfish reasons, lets have some more 16 bit coverage! :D

Re: Name that game or console that you aspire to own

Neo geo has always been the holy grail for me. That or a functioning arcade cab.
My current, more feasible target is PC

Re: From The Forum issue 112 Mega Drive

Being a Snes man at the time I haven't fully revisited the Megadrive but there's a few exclusives out there i'm dying to try. A buddy had Gunstar Heroes which was excellent!

Re: Saturn Question

Whoa, steady on. Okay, I got the Saturn for £2.45 (plus £15 p/p) so it's not the end of the world if I can't get it going, however I don't have access to a disposable amount of reasonably priced retros consoles (Local retro shop charges €50 minimum for any old console) So, I'd rather get it working ...

Re: Saturn Question

argh, thought i had, raised the spindle again and adjusted the potentometer by a tiny anti clockwise increment. Stayed longer on the Saturn boot up screen, then went to the cd screen, got the Drive Empty message, which i hadn't seen before. Might need another tiny adjustment

Saturn Question

For any Saturn experts out there! My Saturn won't read games/cd's, it always boots to the CD menu. Cleaned the lens and it made no different, about to open it up and see if the cables are properly seated, came across this solution for the problem, http://www.fixya.com/support/t492541-sega_saturn_gam...

Dreamcast Online?

Anyone manage to get their PAL Dreamcast online recently? Without have to use the broadband adaptor?
Is 56k dialup essential or is there another way around it, thanks!

Re: worst game boxes and packaging.

The snes boxes were rubbish, the PSX boxes, were ok, but prone to cracking and the hinges usually went.
