  1. If you ever get the Switch version as well, maybe think about keeping it sealed? I am not sure what has been going on with some Switch titles, especially some of the third party games, but I've seen some elevated prices. I looked up a couple of things I have (e.g., Code of Princess EX and even something common like Xenoblade Chronicles 2) and really?
  2. This will likely end my search for a SuperGrafx that isn't way overpriced or had the crap beat out of it (usually both).
  3. SAG (Stone Age Gamer) is getting in on the second batch. I put myself on the mailing list to be notified once they start taking pre orders. On paper, that is about $47 more, but how much more is it really considering SAG is about 45-50 minutes away from my house compared to an import. If I want to, I can trade the old one in.
  4. So now there is going to be an updated Super System SD 3 with HDMI out as well as revamped analog out as well if you still want to use an up scaler or a CRT. Physical reset button as well as a more reliable software one. Also, one can play SuperGrafx games even on a regular PC engine. At launch, there is going to be an NES core too, and more will likely get ported I assume. I am of course going to wait as usual while any kinks get worked out, but if this works as advertised, I plan on getting one once the part shortage is alleviated and a US distributor like SAG get them in. Controller options are kind of limited for any cores that get ported though.
  5. I saw those posts about the foam versus no foam on discord when that news broke. It was unclear whether it was intentionally left out or if it was left out by accident from the repair. In the absence of any official word, there is a lot of speculation. Some are afraid to play their consoles and other have used them hard without problems. For any of the games with batteries, the reliability can be suspect at this point if it still has the original battery. I certainly would not wiggle one in an original top loader any more than I would in the NT.
  6. All yours for 1 million dollars. How many Ataco boxes can one buy instead (wait a sec... none). (Does anyone really buy these things?). https://www.ebay.com/itm/224206705697
  7. I can see it now if I hold mine at just the right angle. I hope we can get more light shed on this. Analogue is not the best at communication to put it nicely, so it would be good to know if people can stop being worried or if there are measures that one can easily take if there is a problem.
  8. I saw this discussion on discord a couple of days ago, but I had a little trouble following if pad versus no pad was a problem. That second picture hadn't been posted yet though. So I take it this sponge is to the left of the power button (when facing the top of the console). Someone said they could see this pad just looking through the bottom. I can't tell on mine as the view is pretty obscured there.
  9. I was wondering why these (the NT mini noir) are basically being sold at a near loss on the 3rd party market. While I wish I had known that Analogue was going to put more out before I got one elsewhere, I am not clairvoyant, and since I got free shipping, the difference isn't so bad. Wonder if Analogue has kept some back and will release a small stock every once and awhile; that will help things from going to crazy on the 3rd party market (idle speculation)? I suspect they did not make more of them since making them can't be cheap. I am not surprised that the Super Nt went fast. There was a pent up demand as it had been out of stock for awhile, and the price is much easier to swallow. I guess if I decide if I really want a Mega Sg when it becomes available again, maybe I shouldn't dilly dally (though that one took much longer to sell out).
  10. Nearly 1 pm, and one could still add one to the cart. I am surprised they have lasted this long assuming that button works.
  11. Better late than never, but I finally got around to joining this.
  12. People tend to give Ys III a bad rap, but I don't think it is too bad. It's a change in direction like Zelda 2 was, and I suspect it catches people off guard. The Ys IV English fan translation is pretty impressive. They even went so far as dubbing the spoken dialog. That dialog may not sound the best, but it still should be recognized for the effort.
  13. This performance is amazing. I haven't played Paper Mario: The Origami King, but now I want to. #vgmtogether.

     

     

  14. Once you have had more of a chance to use it, I'd like to hear more. It might be something I keep my eye on once I recover from a recent laptop purchase. That price tag is a little lofty but not the most expensive thing I have or almost have pulled the trigger on either.
  15. I have generally observed that the OSSC is less fuss with the colors, and the Framemeister is less fuss with the aspect ratio. Have you tried running the OSSC through the HDMI input of the Framemeister just for kicks? I haven't tried that often, but if I recall, the color bar test still looked pretty good from the 240p test suite.
