I just got one new in box for $330. Maybe I paid too much, but it's great to have.

In Topic: Why is the Xbox One Dashboard experience so horrible?

I thought the Wii U experience as almost as bad but Nintendo made the Switch experience a shitload cleaner and nicer to use from that at least. 


I can't find many categories in the Switch store. Where is the apps category? I want to see a list with YouTube, Netflix, etc. in there. I have to manually search instead. My all-time favorite was the Wii dashboard. Bring back music! :D

Nearly three years since the last post, and I really hope you start this up again. Sure, the lack of response can be frustrating, but keep in mind that there are many lurkers out there. I read through nearly all of your reviews, loved them, but I didn't interact. Doesn't mean I didn't thoroughly enjoy them all. I'm sure many others have done this too. Please come back! I'll even help by sharing all your latest reviews on my Page Zap!


I'd really like to see you review Miracle Warriors. I just mentioned it last week:

Just got Phantasy Star. Is there any way to make it take up more of the screen? I don't care about the added stuff on the right that wasn't in the original.



In Topic: MEGA SCART switchers...8+

Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:42 PM

I never saw that anyone replied to this.  After doing a TON of reading on this and looking over what each console can do and what they cant.. I think I am leaning towards the W-Hydra 2, I don't want a Auto switch like 99% of them are, I want something that can be automated and controlled via IR.  It seems the W-Hydra 2 is one of the very few that can.  They make an 8 and 16 version.    After looking at tons of models, IR control is VERY rare for something 8 or more.


The W-Hydra 2 16 port is about $265.. as the gscartsw v3.4. is about $220 for an 8 with no IR support. $45 more with double the inputs and more features ?  Sold...


So my setup will have 12 Svideo/Composite switcher and a 16port SCART switcher...


I will be running them directly into a Framemeister…


What I really love about the gscartsw v3.4 is that one of the two outputs it has is VGA. This helps me tremendously with my Startech PEXHDCAP60 capture card, which has a VGA RGB port. With the W-Hydra, it has two SCART outputs, so I would need to buy an adapter.


As for the W-Hydra having IR control, why would you need a remote for? It's an automatic SCART switch.
