  1. 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.)
  2. Indeed! The 5200 needs some kind of higher-quality AV mod. I'm still waiting for Darktim to create a 5200RGB board.
  3. 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
  4. Both of those sound great too, especially Berzerk which has always been a favorite of mine. If you do plan to make further wraps, perhaps I can suggest an "overall" Vectrex theme with logos and artwork from all the games, or at least the more notable ones? That way it would give the Vectrex more of an "arcade in a box" feel rather than focusing on just one game. Still, that Minestorm skin is very easy on the eyes. Impressive work!
  5. I have to disagree with you @Tempest only because Super Mario 64 and SoulCalibur exist. I feel like I'm the same boat as most of you: not in a huge hurry to have a PS5. I waited about 2 years before buying a PS3 due to the price, and it worked out great because, during that time, Sony released the DS3 instead of the crappy Sixaxis it originally shipped with. Waited about a year to buy a PS4 simply due finishing games on PS3 and a lack of must-have early titles. I don't think PS5 launch will be any different.
  6. I won't say it's an A+ game either, but I've always loved it and thought it head and shoulders above the majority of the 2600 library. Enjoyed your review though. Side thought: is there any chance River Raid was a direct inspiration for Xevious, which came out a year later?
  7. I think we all know the coronavirus will be the excuse Atari desperately needed to shut the whole project down, while offering their sincerest apologies to the backers in that really hard-to-write email.
  8. Very cool to see nonetheless. I wonder how many Jaguar consoles there even are in Japan. Surely there can't be many?
  9. Games are always best on original hardware, end of story. That assumes of course that everything is in working order. Over the last 2 years I have started toying with emulation (RetroPie, then Hyperspin) and I would say the main draw is the convenience. If I pull out a cart, for instance, I have to clean it with 91% alcohol/Q-tips before I even start it and that shit takes time away from gaming. NES carts are usually the dirtiest! It's still my preferred way to play though, even with the hassle. I adore emulation for MAME and older (or foreign) computers that I don't have.
  10. Heh, it's interesting that the value of Devil's Third shot up like that when most Wii U game values seem to be falling (at least for now, they'll only go up many years down the line). Hello Kitty Kruisers was selling for over $100 at one point and now seems to be about half that according to GVN. Having played both, neither one is worth that much!
  11. Damn, very nice work Blazers! The CDi is one of the very few US consoles I've never delved into, though I had a rich friend with one bitd and we played a lot of Hotel Mario and golf. I agree that the longbox collection does look very nice all together!
  12. Loved reading your review, keep 'em coming! PS. Thank you for not simply linking to a YT video you made. Yes, some of us still prefer to read.
  13. Yea no doubt, I love reading shit like that. It's been a long while since I've pulled out Shape Shifter but now I'm eager to see it again.
  14. I also agree the answer is no, and like others have said or suggested, it was really the 32X that started SEGA's downward spiral. There was no saving the Saturn, but (to look on the positive side) I think the best thing to come of its poor reception and failure is that it made the launch of the Dreamcast one of the most exciting console launches ever.
  15. Yowch, you're a tough critic. I personally felt the game was incredible, with interesting characters and top-notch production values. I can't respond to all of your points, but mainly wanted to say that though the game's characters are androids, imo the devs were trying to make a parallel with those in our society who are overlooked, silenced and oppressed. Loved every minute of the game. Easy plat, too.
  16. For myself, $0. However I have a few friends (who aren't big retro gamers) that have one so I have played it. I can't shake the feeling that it was meant for the family or middle-aged guy/gal who hasn't thought about Mario Bros. in 30 years to get a quick nostalgia fix. It's not, imo, a very good way to actually play the games included.
  17. It's always been a favorite of mine, though admittedly it's been on a pedestal since I was a child. If you remember (or imagine) before the crash, before NES, before SMS, when Atari 2600 ruled the gaming world - the 5200 was a top-of-the-line elite machine that appeared to completely blow away anything we saw on the 2600. I only knew one family who had one and seeing Pac-Man on it blew my mind. Hindsight has cleared things up a bit and history hasn't been very kind to the 5200, but to me it'll always be special. I wish you luck on your hunt. You'll love it.
  18. Great transaction with @masschamber! Picked up a Jaguar CD unit that I have been wanting for years, along with a few games. Shipped quick, packed well. Thanks again my friend.
  19. Bump for a great multi-cart and great guy. Thanks for making these!
  20. @masschamber was correct: the Bally Professional Arcade (aka Astrocade), the Neo Geo of the 70's.
  21. I believe Inca Gold is an exception among Zellers carts, an all original game.
  22. And when you send him a list of all the common and slightly uncommon games to purchase, you MAY get a response and it may say that he has just too many games to dig through to find just these common carts that you want. At least that's the treatment I got, after having at least 2 successful transactions with him. He made me feel like an asshole for wanting to buy (more) games from him, so he lost me as a customer forever. Good luck, but I highly suggest you look elsewhere.
