  1. I've been wondering wth Sucker Punch has been up to since inFAMOUS Second Son, which was a very early PS4 title. I couldn't make much headway into Sekiro before giving up and Tsushima looks to be more my style. I'll pick it up soon.
  2. Some rage-inducing enemies from the NES era: 1. The thieves (Plutons?) in Kid Icarus that would jump at random by/over you and steal a weapon if you made contact 2. Like Likes in LoZ who would eat your Magic Shield 3. Mike Tyson in MTPO. I would get so worked up fighting him that if anyone else was in the room, I would angrily insist they be completely silent. I never did beat him and if I ever meet the real Mike Tyson, I'm liable to smack him in the face. I'm sure that will go over well.
  3. That is the Sears version. Telegames was a different company that came later and never released a version of 3D Tic-Tac-Toe. The Sears version is super common and cheap and VGPC's value is certainly wrong. Edit: I would steer you to GameValueNow which is an overall better site imo. Here is their entry for it, which shows about $6 (which seems a bit high to me!).
  4. Just all around stupid, but people will buy them for their shelf I guess. Stupid. I have a friend who said he wouldn't even loot the thing. (I am very much against looting but it still made me chuckle.)
  5. I always like the DC controller and voted good, though of course there was room for improvement. My main complaint would be the long throw of the analog triggers. If you want to compare it to the most popular previous system, the N64, the controller was a marked improvement by simply having the D-pad and left analog stick both workable from one standard hand position. Keep in mind that when the DC came out, the only real home console controller creators were Nintendo, Sega and Sony. Sega couldn't exactly straight up copy the PS1 DualShock, and everyone nowadays seems *aghast* that they didn't, but the DC controller was just fine for the majority of games coming out for the system. Yes, we all love the DualShock layout now, but hindsight in 2020 is 20/20 and it just wasn't a standard in 1999.
  6. Three pages into this thread and no one has posted a seinfeld.jpg?? What's the deal with that?
  7. Hi friends, I'm looking for a Neo Geo CD controller in clean, working condition and would prefer to buy from someone in the US to avoid any postal delays. Thanks in advance!
  8. Your collection is a dream to view @stupusI truly appreciate all the love and time you invested in finding those over the years. It's humbling. I'm happy to know I could contribute in one small way by trading my boxed Intv Tutankham to you years ago. It definitely belongs in your collection; loose is fine by me on Intv. I hope you'll keep showing us some other system collections as well one day, especially some of the more esoteric stuff
  9. Gee whizball! That's pretty crazy. If I can suggest another wtf auction, this one ends today: supposedly (probably?) the rarest NA Gamecube release. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Duo-Pack-Nintendo-GameCube-2003-Brand-New-Super-Monkey-Ball-Sonic-Heroes/373025850257
  10. I understand your frustration @TIX but one way to look at it is that you'll be able to configure your new setup exactly to your liking. Setup can certainly be part of the fun, at least it is for me.
  11. Is there ANY chance SoR4 might get a wider, non-LRG release later? The Wonder Boy remake was a big deal when LRG published it physically, and some of you may remember that LRG allowed their "friends" to order their copies of the highly-desired game earlier than everyone else. Then we find out later it got a wide release by Nicalis. I'm eager to buy the game but not really eager to give more money to LRG after staying away from them for over 2 years!
  12. Thanks for the heads-up on that @NE146! A good friend of mine has been talking about setting up RetroPie but I told him he should wait a bit for RPi4 support. He'll be happy to hear. I would guess that the RPi4 should be powerful enough to handle N64 and DC, which is where the 3 fell short. I really enjoyed setting up RetroPie on my RPi3 but I've since moved on to a more powerful solution. Still, for the price you really can't go wrong. I may pick one up down the line just for fun.
  13. So, you threw a controller and you're angry because it broke? Are you in middle school?
  14. OK fair enough. DK Junior just looks so ugly though! I hate the 2600 port! Merlin's Walls may look and play like ass (I admit I haven't played it), but it's considered a homebrew is it not? Seems unfair to lump homebrews in - maybe a separate list would be better? Basic Math is present but no love (err, hate) for Eli's Ladder? Karate is pretty damn awful and would probably be my #1. Sssnake is a solid choice for the list too but Bugs (also by Data Age) is right up there and it holds a special, bitter place in my heart. I bought Bugs with birthday money as a kid and I think I'm still sour about it!
  15. If you insist on including Donkey Kong, then you must include Donkey Kong Junior which was many, MANY times worse than DK. DK was actually playable and I would say it falls nowhere near the bottom 10 of the *entire* 2600 library. Also should Merlin's Walls be included since it came out after the 2600's lifespan?
  16. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/04/turbografx-16-mini-review-mostly-best-in-class-retro-gaming-sometimes-wtf Ars Technica review of the TG16 Mini. The controllers seem nice since they appear to be almost exactly the same as the originals. The selection of games is rather weird though. Neutopia I and II in both English *and* Japanese? Why?? That is so dumb. In fact, it's my opinion that NO Japanese games (as good and plentiful as they are) should be included on a TG16 Mini. I know some people will be overjoyed to own this, but I'll be taking a pass. My brief time with the NES Classic was enough to demonstrate that the lag and silly selection of games aren't worth it (to me).
  17. Bump, still searching for a few loose US manuals!
  18. For what its worth I would refrain from subjective trivia questions like "most critically acclaimed" titles. There's enough fun video game minutiae out there can be fact-checked. That said, these were fun and thanks for making them! You should do it weekly!
  19. It was a big change when eBay stopped allowing sellers to leave negative feedback. Overall, I think it was for the best though. Too many sellers were using (or were able to use) feedback as leverage or petty "revenge" for a negative from an unsatisfied buyer. I think there should still be -some- option for sellers to leave feedback on non-paying bidders or other troublemakers without having to make it "positive." I am curious though @stupus, did you end up leaving feedback for him with your remarks?
  20. I saw your post in the 5200 forums and, as an X-Arcade Tankstick owner, I'm very very intrigued! I haven't had a chance to watch the videos while at work, so apologies if it is mentioned - but could you link to Ikonsgr's listing on eBay or the relevant AA thread about his adapters? Thanks for sharing this!
  21. I picked up some uncommon AES games from scandl71 and everything went wonderfully. They are authentic and he was always friendly and responsive in our correspondence. I couldn't have hoped for a better transaction. Cheers! =D
  22. Well there are only so many racing games on the Dreamcast, and even fewer that race with cars. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out which one, but I'm too lazy to search for ya. My best guess though would be Metropolis Street Racer. (I don't believe Speed Devils has licensed models, though it's been years since I played it.)
  23. Indeed! The 5200 needs some kind of higher-quality AV mod. I'm still waiting for Darktim to create a 5200RGB board.
  24. Sega CD gets a worse rap than it deserves. Unfortunately, 2 of the best titles for the platform, Snatcher and Popful Mail, are prohibitively expensive
