    Ikaruga

    So I switched to using the analogue stick and found it much nicer than the d-pad which was unexpected. Thanks for the advice guys.

    What controller are you guys using to play this? I'm finding the d-pad on the pro controller a bit of a chore to use.

    Ikaruga

    Got sucked into buying this again. Used to love it on the GameCube and for a while the xbox360 version. Finding it difficult with the switch controller. Tempted to get a GameCube controller adapter if that will work. If anyone wants to add me please do. I have zero friends on my switch. Friend Code: SW-6612-8381-1137
  4. I was thinking he doesn't usually sound like that when watching the video. Wonder where Dave has gone?

    Sega Saturn for Beginners

    Ahh that's one you don't want to think about too much. Think how much you could've bought now.

    OSSC - Open Source Scan Converter

    I think some capture cards can be a bit picky when using the ossc. Some capture cards don't like the original consoles slightly off-spec refresh rates/resolution through the ossc as it doesn't normalize the signal like a framemeister does. Worth having a look into before getting one just in case it wouldn't suit.

    20 years ago today - PAL N64 Launch

    Looking forward to hearing reports on this despite never having a problem with the original n64 design myself. Only the stick becoming loose has ever bothered me.

    Sega Saturn for Beginners

    Most Saturn titles seem prohibitively expensive these days. Can still get some good titles cheap though. I remember selling my burning rangers for 20-odd pound around 2009 too. Then again I only paid something similar for it. It was a decent enough game with some technical flaws. The frame rate was all over the place though, sound effects wouldn't play if too much happening and the polygons flickered like crazy. It did have transparency effects though haha.

    Help me pick Ten PlayStation games

    Resident Evil 2, Parasite Eve, Time Crisis and any game in the Ridge Racer series. Everyone has their own favourite in the series. They're all great.
  10. Is Dead to Rights worth a bash? Always wanted to play that game around the time it came out.
  11. Before you check pricing and stuff you should find out if either of the consoles is a 1-chip model.(better RGB picture) They're worth a good bit more if so. The PAL models are easy to spot as well I think as you just need to open the expansion port on the bottom to check. Here's a link. http://retrorgb.com/1chipsnes.html

    Blade Runner

    Would be nice to play on an old CRT monitor that's for sure. The graphics are locked to a resolution of 640x480 being pre-rendered obviously so can be a bit distracting on occasion. They have a certain lo-res charm to them all the same.

    Blade Runner

    You should give that patch a go! Worked perfectly for me on Windows 10 last year when I tried it. I believe the old installer for the game is 16-bit so won't run on modern operating systems. The patch replaces it and after copying and pasting a few files about it's plain sailing. Brilliant game.

    Good retro gaming YouTube channels

    Stop Skeletons From Fighting is another one that seems to be pretty good. Watched about 8 or 9 videos myself and might be worth a go to some people here.

    Good retro gaming YouTube channels

    Happyconsolegamer - does a mix of new and old stuff. Digital Foundry Retro - I'm a big fan of the retro episodes John Linneman does on Digital Foundry. There's a playlist on there of about 30 or so episodes. MyLifeinGaming - Lots of videos dedicated to getting the best picture etc out of your consoles and good few episodes dedicated to the games themselves. Really well produced. LazyGameReviews - This guy covers a lot of old ms-dos and windows games mainly. That's about all I can think of at the minute.
