  1. The short answer…questionable market size. I could see them making a flashback style handheld and having them sell like hotcakes, but the truth is, most folks who are nostalgic about the Atari 2600 won't go to the lengths we (collectors) would to obtain and manage a collection of carts. Nowadays, it is just easier for the casual gamer who is feeling nostalgic to just resort to emulation…sad but true.

     

    I've even noticed many collectors recently have been selling off their game carts in favor of things like the Harmony cart. It takes up less space and fills the need for those who just want to play games.

     

    Selling my collection? I don't think so! I love to here and there go to my game room and enjoy the past in its original form.


  2. I rarely ever pre-order things. When it comes to console games I've learned that they stop supporting games way too fast.

    On PC people mod games, give it new life again.

     

    Remember when EA used to allow mods? Until they realized if you still play the game with the mod you might not want to buy the yearly release of half finished games!

    Companies now a days want you to play the game for 11 months and then buy the new one.

    Do we really need a new WWE, Soccer, NFL game every year? Just give a patch that updates the roster!!!

    Battlefield 1942 used to be awesome for mods; I remember playing desert storm mod so much I because it was so well done, it was my first experience with mods I think.

  3. So as everyone may be aware, Ubisoft did not allow reviewers to launch their reviews on Assassins Creed Unity until 12 hours after the game was launched on the East Coast USA.

     

    This is another thing that really ticket me off from a customer standpoint. The company basically did not want anyone to know about the games glitches, lack of new things, lack of great story, to get in the way of sales.

     

    After the reviews actually came out, it showed how flawed the game actually was... So imagine if those reviews were out beforehand... Maybe a few days ahead of the game....

     

    I wonder if this is a new tactic from companies when they don't feel the game is truly finished or is going to be a hit? Its ridiculous!!!


  4. Hey all,

     

    I bought some time ago on a Steam sale Far Cry 3 and Bloodragon, but never played it because I refuse to use Origin or Uplay. I was unaware that those games required it when I bought it through Steam.

     

    Is there any way to install them without having to make an account with Ubisoft?

     

    I'm sick and tired of companies forcing me to make an account for every game nowadays! I had to make a PS4 account, then a EA account so I could play FIFA 14!! (I understand having a ps4 account)

     

    What happened to the good old days of just installing the game and playing??? And don't get me started on companies releasing 10 day one DLC that could have already been included in the game!!! And 15GB day one patches!!!!!

     

    HORSE ARMOR DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fancy new jacket DLC!!!!!!!!!!! New song DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Install this app on your tablet so you can open the Assassins Creed loot chest on the PS4!!!!!!!!!!

     

    :(

  5. I have it myself. Typically I'm pretty wary of Early Access games on Steam because of the fact that any one of them could just go bust and leave you with an unfinished game you paid about 30 dollars for, but since this was only 15 bucks I took the chance. I do like the game, but it's pretty hard. 90% of the time when I've finally found a good campsite, it turns out to be right next to some cannibal camp i didn't notice, and I always get curbstomped by some guy who got the drop on me.

     

    I haven't played it much lately, but I might have to since the latest update seems like it's added some good stuff. I'm really wondering what they'll do with some of those unused tabs in the survival guide though.

     

    If you want to build 1st do this:

     

    start the game and when you get to the title, before pressing start game type on keyboard: VEGANMODE, if the screen changes into a purple flower the no cannibals will appear. You can use that to learn the game better, build and then let the cannibals appear.

     

    But it's more fun playing the game the way it was meant though.


  6. Looks and sounds interesting for sure.

     

    Is it like a realistic Minecraft? I notice you seem to "mine" tree's, and build huts, I'm guessing to take shelter from the cannibals.

    Kind of reminds me of Minecraft.

     

     

    It does have a little Minecraft, you chop trees, branches, pick up rocks from the ground.

     

    You build traps for animals and death traps for cannibals. Take shelter at night or explore if your brave.

     

    The cannibals come in single numbers exploring, according to the creator of the game, the cannibals don't know where the player is, so they randomly explore, but the more you build the more they come exploring and the higher levels of cannibals come attack.

     

    I got knocked down at one point and woke up inside a cave, then while trying to find a way out I got killed.


  7. Do you need a fast powerful expensive ass computer to run this?.If not i'd download this in a heartbeat.

  8. Anyone play The Forest?

    It is still in alpha but new content is being added all the time. Been playing it for a little bit and it's very fun with a lot of potential. Death is permanent!

    You must survive alone in an island after your plane crashes with all the passengers... Cannibals inhabit the island and will be curious on why you're cutting down trees!

    Fun stuff!

  9. If you saved your EEPROM files from the box, you can make another new hard disk, or unlock the disk you have, then re-lock the drive with the EEPROM keys. If you didn't save them, then you are screwed...the drive is locked. The only way I know to unbrick that is a hard mod.

     

    Some mods have two modes - one if you boot with the drive tray open vs closed, so try that also. You may get lucky.

     

    That's why the first thing to do after softmod is FTP your keys off the box.

    I did back up eeprom files into the usb disk... how do I restore the box?


  10. Hello,

     

    Welll... It went from awesome to now I'm screwed...

     

    I softmodded my xbox, installed kawaks x and got 1 game to boot properly...

    The went back to PC and downloaded a SNES emu for xbox...

    When I turned the xbox back on it does not go past the unleash x logo. It freezes at this point...

     

    Is the xbox dead? Did I brick it?


  11. Eh, all I can suggest is that you take a look at how the stuff is currently laid out on your Xbox, and follow that pattern. It should be fairly obvious once you do.

    More or less, you're going to unzip (for example) your NES emulator to someplace like E:\emulators\xNES\default.xbe, and whatever other files & folders were in that zip along with the .xbe file will be in that E:\emulators\xNES\ directory too. In that example xNES\ folder, there's probably a ROMs\ folder... dump those still-zipped game ROM files iin there.

    The games are now showing up but they won't start, says cannot load game error something bin.

     

    ERROR: Can't load 234-c1.bin (9f7e2bd3)

    Ok so I unzip the Emulator files but NOT the roms.

    I will try it later today maybe and get back.

    Thanks!


  13. What file manager are you using on the xbox, and what file system on the USB drive?

    The USB is a 4gb scan cruzer disk.

    I now managed to transfer the files into the xbox, but when I go to the emulators nothing shows up. I shut it off and still nothing was showing up.

     

    Now, do I put the files in the disk as zip without opening the emulator and games?

    I opened the files and then put them on Xplorer360, should I put them in as winzip files?


  14. Hello,

     

    I just softmodded my original xbox, but I would like to transfer emulators and roms using an USB stick instead of FTP. The softmod is working fine.

     

    When I plug in my USB stick to the xbox, it's shows the emulators and rom files as corrupt and does not give me any option to transfer them to the xbox.

     

    Does anyone know a way to do it without using the internet FTP?

    Thanks!


  15. May I suggest you to use a modded Xbox with CoinOP installed ;)

    Works super well with Xarcade as well using a controller adapter (sold by Xgaming)

    I'm currently waiting for my stuff to arrive from amazon and ebay so I can start attempting my 1st softmodding of my original xbox.

    Maybe if I'm successful I would do that, let's see if I can pull it off!


  16.  

    Man, if you want a similar cab, here's my advice

     

    Lay down your actual Street Fighter cabinet on its side .... on a 4x8 sheet

    Trace the contour of your cabinet . then use a jigsaw to make the cut

     

    Then, take your (cutted) Side of your new cabinet, then lay it down on a new sheet of 4x8

    Then simply route it

     

     

    Hope it help you

    I got a site and downloaded some measuremnets as PDF's, I'm still deciding if I'm gonna do exactly as Street Fighter cabinet I have, or do a slighty different one.

     

    But I'm gonna use a PC with a front loader and buy one of those X controllers.


  17. Hi all,

     

    I got someone with experience with woodwork that is going to help me build a machine, I currently own a SF II Champion Edition machine and would like to build a similar one.

    Any sites that offer accurate measurements and tells you what you need?

    I want to build the frame but use one of those already build arcade controllers, I figure it would be easier.

     

    Thanks,

    Yan
