  1. Played for the first time in ages last night, run a few casuals, had this good set with a hyperactive tricky Vega. Some terrible rust and missed opportunities and a horror show of a second round, but it all came together in the end. Couple of parries and cheeky slow mo in there so the music length matched the video
  2. If you have Dreamcast stuff please let me know. Trying to curate a small but perfectly formed collection

    Neo Geo Mini

    130 quid is too much. It's a shame - I love the choice of games, but the things so small it's gonna be awkward playing for long hours. The lack of battery means it's gonna stay tethered near the TV so likely permanently hooked up to it, and an additional controller is more or less essential. But its wired so I'll need cables trailing across the front room, and those cables won't be very long either. So basically dropping £155 on an impractical tiny cabinet and controller is just not doing it for me at all. Yes to all of this. I'll stick with a controller for nostalgias sake as I think they are a decent price (plus I've never had one before)

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I think I spent the entirety of summer '98 glued to Vigilante 8. That game was so fun (and better than its sequel)

    Exhumed is amazing - but the Saturn is the version to beat! That real time lighting was incredible back in the day

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Not really comparable - Ive still got my xecutor 2 xbox for component out. The emulators were never a big deal, terrible front end, confusing button combos to try and get through amateur hour menus. Kawax was the only one I regularly used yet I still bought the disc releases of stuff like Slug 3 and Kof 2002. Besides back then it was a modded xbox or PC for emulation and that was it. There are tons of ways to play stuff nowadays.

    I've no doubt it's a good piece of kit, just sick of people harping on about them in every thread like this. Modern equivelent of the bloke in Dixons trying to flog you something you don't want

    These nerds who just have to pipe up about retropie at every single opportunity are the fucking worst. I bet they don't even play 95% of the games they have on the fucking thing when they could be using that time to tell everyone why you should buy one instead of mini snes/nes/whatever. They probably use those fuck awful clone usb snes pads from aliexpress for £3 while at the same time harping on about scanline filters for the 'true experience' all encased in some hideous purple see through case with 10 leds in it. Just shut up, and fuck off. Ta!

    PS4 Pro

    Or a Dreamast or Original Xbox - couldn't believe how loud they are, and that was after they had been taken apart and lovingly restored !

    Seems about the size (maybe slightly smaller) of the 20th Anniversary Steelbook from a few years ago:

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The thing I like the most about these mini consoles is holding a brand new controller that doesn't have 25 years of cheesy wotsits and palm sweat in every crevice, it really scratches my inner nerd. Is that really worth £70-90? Yes. Yes it is.

    Sega Announce MD Mini and Shenmue 1 & 2 Remastered

    Nah, I'd say it counts, without them giving the license it would never have happened

    Sega Announce MD Mini and Shenmue 1 & 2 Remastered

    I read somewhere the new person who heads up Sega Japan is much more keen on utilising classic games and IPs. I mean we've had Shenmue HD and Streets of Rage 4 given the go ahead which seemed impossible a decade ago, so I think they finally 'get it'

    Sega Announce MD Mini and Shenmue 1 & 2 Remastered

    if ATgames are no longer writing the emulator nor can they recycle the shell (no cart slot on announced version) I can't see them having anything to do with this tbh. I mean who puts a wireless controller in the box with a bloody screw cover to change the batteries? cheapo tat!
