Re: Not Feeling the Dreamcast Love

Oh there's a lot of love for the DC. $99 AUD for the console, 3 controllers, gun + 18 games. Lotta love. :lol: I think the DC appeals more to arcade enthusiasts. Except I was an arcade junkie. I was doing 4-5 hour days of MvC2, NFL Blitz 2000, Crazy Taxi, Rival Schools, King of Fighters, Daytona USA...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Mobile phones. That and Facebook/Twitter are cause of almost everything that's wrong with society. We've evolved into a bunch of self indulgent egotists. I hate those who play their C-RAP music on public transport. I hate those who get pissed off at me when I don't pick up their phone calls. News f...

Nothing's wrong with NeoRageX.
It was actually the best NG emu back in the day. You can run it on a Pentium 200 and play games at its native speed.

Re: Neo Geo Emulation

Never tried it on the Wii. But that would be interesting. The best NeoGeo emulator for you is really a personal preference. Personally I do not like using MAME to play NeoGeo roms. I only use it to play really old games. I often use Kawaks and FinalBurn to play them. I'm usually on GGPO playing KOF ...

Re: Bullet-Hell Shmups - What's the Appeal?

I'm actually looking for a really old arcade shmup.

It's a vertical shooter. But I remember it had the flag of each stage on the top of the screen. Anyone knows what it is?

Re: the playstation collection thread

RE remake on the cube is an awesome game, but the PS1 original does have the live action cut scenes :) I still prefer the PS1 version of RE2, it just defines the playstation for me. Tomb raider anniversary is much better than the original though. well thats not hard tomb raider was a horrible game ...

Re: PSP vs DS retro emulation

I wouldn't say DS retro emulation is great. It's fair. The screen res is just incompatible for pretty much all games. But they are playable nevertheless.

Re: the playstation collection thread

I struggle to get into PS1 collecting, there aren't that many titles that jump out at me as being must-haves, the cases are horrid and the games themselves (for the most part) look very dated. Then you're an ill-informed loud mouthed idiot pandering to a internet meme that's equally ill-informed. I...

Re: Worst character

Every single character to appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise after Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Don't think I can type that many out... That's exactly what I was about to say. Particularly "Eggman" :evil: Also: Vanille (Final Fantasy XIII) - OK, the whole game is terrible, but she makes it infinit...
