Re: Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

AlexHiro4: I probably should have asked this in that MSL! topic you posted and I commented on, but why is it such a big issue that (assuming it is even possible) for the Saturn Satinator to apply the patch to the Japanese disc simultaneously? You say you are a collector, I am somewhat too. Why not ...

Re: Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

First of all, mad props for owning your own copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga. Secondly, buying games one at a time and reselling them on Ebay does sound like a good idea for most people, but I'm also a collector. I pride myself in owning my games themselves, not just the game systems. Not to mention, I f...

Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

As I've mentioned several times before, I'm a retro gamer who has a deep love and appreciation for original consoles over emulation. Thankfully, I have a good sized library for most of my consoles (due to growing up with them), but even on those consoles there are some games that I don't own that ar...

Re: Silver Star Story Touch may disappear with iOS 11

...though I need a bluetooth controller to play anything. It lets you use the touch screen, but it's kind of impossible to use the screen as a controller while I'm actually trying to look at the screen (not to mention having no tactile feedback makes it impossible to play anything). I recommend try...

Re: High quality S-Video switch box??

I can't answer the question directly since I don't use S-Video cables any more, but... are component cables or S-Video cables supposed to provide better quality? I've never had the chance to try both on the same TV to make an accurate comparison, and everything I play older systems on now has compo...

Re: What gaming cables do you use?

Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I had a busy weekend. When you say component cables, do you mean composite cables? Component cables have 5 plugs (Red, White, Red (again), green, and blue). Composite cables are the red, white, and yellow cables. The reason I ask is because no component cable...

What gaming cables do you use?

Hey guys! As of late, I've been really obsessed with retro gaming and the best types of cables to use. A lot of people that have more money to spend than I do will invest in RGB SCART cables and either an RGB PVM, for the old school CRT look, or a Frameister, for the upscaled modern-day display look...

Re: Magical School Lunar, Sega Saturn, My Life in Gaming, and Professor Abrasive

Are you familiar with any of Professor Abrasive's work by chance? Truthfully, I've only become aware of him and his work within the last week, so I don't know a lot. However, from what I could tell it looks like there is a ton of possibility through the exploitation of the VCD port on the back. Alth...

Re: High quality S-Video switch box??

Well, I do agree that there is going to be SOME signal loss, but whether or not it's visible when using a certain box is the deal breaker. The guys from "My Life in Gaming" on Youtube did a video on switch boxes, but they were mostly SCART boxers with a few component boxes as well. No S-vi...

Re: Magical School Lunar, Sega Saturn, My Life in Gaming, and Professor Abrasive

That's a real shame. I assume the only way to play the translated Game Gear game is via emulator? Or can you dump and English translation patch onto the cart while playing your original hardware?

Magical School Lunar, Sega Saturn, My Life in Gaming, and Professor Abrasive

Back in 2008, I purchased Magical School Lunar for $20 off of Ebay, and I got a hold of a Sega Saturn for around $50 (I believe) from Amazon and an Action Replay for $25. I always said I was going to play through it some day while reading an English walkthrough of the game, but out of pure laziness....

High quality S-Video switch box??

Guys, As I've mentioned before, I have a retro gaming setup in one of the rooms of my house. I haven't invested in the whole RGB SCART + Frameister method of obtaining a quality picture yet, but I have invested in great quality S-video cables for the SNES and N64, and I'll be getting two more soon f...

Re: Activism, Social Justice, Protests and you: The Political Discussion Containment Thread

Mission of showing yourself to be an unfunny jerk also accomplished. Seriously. This is on a spectrum with (not the same as) trashing things to show you can. It's really not a good look on you. You know what else isn't a good look for someone? Being an annoying, whiny, self-righteous social justice...

That's really odd....

I'll just download a couple of pics from the JC Penny website, and post them on here then:

New futon for my nerd cave (retro video game room)

I'm so excited! Two Sundays ago, my fiance and I ordered what appears to be the world's most comfy futon from JC Penny. It has arrived via UPS! Now we just have to assemble it when we get home. The reason we opted for a futon is because we have a 3 bedroom house, and the bedrooms are designated as f...

Re: Last Anime?

I know this one is an American animated show, but it's done in an "anime style"....so does RWBY count? If not. I suppose the last true anime I watched was "The Heroic Legend of Arslan".
