  1. I was spending some time playing World Tour Racing on the Jaguar CD and Virtua Racing on the Saturn, back-to-back.  Call me crazy, but I think that WTR is more fun to play and actually looks better.

      Crazy!  :P

      Just watched a video of it. Despite being rushed out the door, it seems to be one of five-to-seven Jaguar CD games worth hunting down. Plus, it has an excellent soundtrack to boot.

  2. The original Sony PlayStation wasn't the only gaming hardware to see a September '95 North American release...

     

    Happy 25th to the Atari Jaguar CD!  Only 11 official titles were released on the platform and a meager 20,000 units are reported to have been produced. 

     

    Celebrate the launch of the doomed Atari Jaguar peripheral with this montage of the 11 official releases, Virtual Light Machine and more!

      I will say this in the defense of the Jaguar CD: It made homebrew development much, much easier.

      @SlidellMan, I agree 💯! That's the real saving grace of the platform. Although it seems that homebrew releases on CD have slowed now that carts are easier to produce. It will be interesting to see how many more CD releases come out moving forward.

      That's kind of crazy to think about.  Battlemorph looks like a really cool game, it's a shame the Jag is not very well emulated.

  3. I wanted to share a teaser for my upcoming channel. This is me getting used to the video editor LOL! Primary focus will be Atari and "failed" consoles but also retro music, style, etc. I hope some fellow AAers check it out!

     

    Can you recognize the games in the teaser?

     

     

  4. Hi all, Looking for a NM to VG+ Sega Dreamcast, CIB with instructions and accessories. Shipping to 90802. The Dreamcast was the only console I ever bought on launch day but I sold it before a move years ago. Looking to rebuild my collection. I've had a couple of near misses on eBay this week but I'm actively looking. PM if interested. Thanks!
  5. I have spent just over a week with a pre-modded Starwander RF 2.0 controller and could not be more pleased. As has been said, the work is so clean it looks like it came from a factory. In fact, I like it so much that I put in an order for a second! Most of my time has been on Zero 5 and Raiden but the RF 2.0 even has me revisiting Trevor McFur. It's still a crap game but the RF 2.0 makes it a bit more tolerable. A spoonful of sugar I suppose... Anyway, if you're on the fence for a kit or pre-modded controller, I highly recommend getting this while it's available. Top work @grips03!
  6. Nice work! I like the single color version. Single color on a retro yellow or baby blue shirt would be tops.
  7. @Adriano Arcade This was a really enjoyable interview. Great questions from you and I appreciated Faran's anecdotes and candor. Well done!
  8. A little VLM on this beautiful socially distanced Sunday.

  9. Jesse installed a UAV mod in my 7800 earlier in the summer. I had picked up the unit a month or so prior as a spare with the intent of possibly modding it so I didn't know the history of the console. Upon receiving and inspecting it, Jesse noted some prior shoddy repair work on the cartridge port. The bottom leads weren't trimmed, tape had been placed over them to prevent a short, the height wasn't correct and the voltage regulator was reinstalled facing the wrong direction and without paste. Jesse corrected these issues, installed the mod and put the machine through its paces, keeping me informed of his progress every step of the way. More than a month in and I'm pleased to report that the system is operating flawlessly. Both the picture quality and audio are excellent. The UAV looks just great via S-Video through my Retrotink 2x Pro setup. It's a vast improvement over my LHE modded 7800 and has replaced that unit and my 2600 in the living room. I appreciated Jesse's communication updates, attention to detail and thoughtful approach throughout this process. I hope to work with him again - perhaps modding my 2-port 5200 or rehabbing the LHE 7800 - in the future. Highly recommended! Arlen
  10. What a fun looking homage to Dragonfire. I gotta dig out the Skunk for this. Thanks for sharing it!
  11. Hi all, I'm looking for a 7800 console in working order and in good to excellent cosmetic condition. I'm trying to find a nice looking one where the plate isn't scratched and dented for my living room. I only need the console. No cords, controllers or games necessary. Thanks for reading.
