In Topic: Retron 4 (console for snes\nes\genny etc)

This is turning out to be an epic thread/wait on new console.


I'm on the fence about this console.  Yes the idea of playing my classics on my modern TV is appealing.  But I still have my old NES, Genesis, SNES, and CRT that work just fine.

In Topic: Reducing my collection, why regrets later?

I think its good to sell of the stuff you don't play.  I'm in that process right now.  I don't have half the collection as most of the gamers here but I'm reducing it.

You need to find a happy medium.   Personally emulators and roms wouldn't do it for me.  I need to have the old console hooked up to a CRT TV.  Flashcarts have beena Godsend for me.  I'm selling off all but about 3 games I had as a kid for the SNES.  For some reason I'm OK with playing SNES via my Everdrive.  But the Genesis I can't part with those a) I had more as a kid and b) the ones I've picked up I wanted as a kid and the collector in me doesn't want to let those go. 


So I guess I'm trying to say, sell what you feel comfortable selling.  Once you start you might be more comfortable letting other stuff go.

I went the past three years.  Looks like I won't be able to make it this year.  Fun time though and I recommend it to anyone thinking about going.

No. Those Majesco D-pads are horrible. I thought that was a given.

I'm talking about an MK-1653. And mind you, I'm not saying it's terrible. It's nowhere near as bad as the Majesco. In fact, "sloppy" probably carries connotations in most peoples minds that are too strong for what I'm saying about the MK-1653. "Sloppy" should probably be reserved for a description of the Majesco pad. Nevertheless, the D-pad on the MK-1653 is imprecise enough to be noticeable and annoying. I especially have problems with it in the Street Fighter games. It's the primary reason I prefer the SNES versions of those games.


Right... because shoulder buttons work so much more fluidly :grin: I'm yet to come across a MK-1653 (in good shape) that has an "imprecise" D-pad. :?

As soon as said SNES I knew why you had an issue with the MK-1653.
