  1. I compare it to setting up a new TV for the first time -- you have to know how to cut through the bullshit. Turn down the sharpness, turn off all of the digital "enhancements" meant to make the picture artificially more appealing in the store. Underneath all that fluff the savvy buyer is getting good tech for their money. The same is true when new tech is being advertised. Xbox One X is an extremely compelling package in terms of the raw GPU power on paper. You get significant graphic improvements (resolution, framerate and detail level), which varies by game, compared with the underwhelming base Xbox One. Not to mention all the X-enhanced backward conpatible games that you essentially get free support for. It's a great setup, it's just that they need talking points like "4K" to dumb it down for the masses.
  2. If most people think that X enhanced means all the games run in native 4K, then their marketing it as a 4K console is effective to the point of being misleading.
  3. I have an Xbox 360 controller adapter for Xbone. The Xbone pad is fine except the D pad always breaks if you use it to play games. I'm on my third pad, and now I exclusively use the 360 pad for D pad games. Yes, it's confirmed Scarlett has a disc drive. Matt Booty said so in his Eurogamer interview. The back compatibility only supports the games currently compatible with the Xbone, not the full library.
  4. Here's the official list of X enhanced games: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/xbox-one/xbox-one-x-enhanced-list
  5. Yep, 2020 for sure. Otherwise the tech's gonna be too late, and there's no reason for them to be talking about it now. They need to get a new console out to keep consumers interested. There is a large demographic of aging gamers willing to spend big bucks on new consoles.
  6. The thread title is such a tease. Coming up with a true digital HDMI solution for the PCE is not a matter of if, but when. Unfortunately, this is just another plug and play adapter solution that uses the existing available analog signal, like the PS2 and Dreamcast HDMI cable/adapters out there.
  7. The geometry changes with the surrounding brightness on the screen and strength of the signal. It's also possible to have a CRT where the geometry is broken beyond repair in the menus.
  8. Megabits were the standard for measuring game sizes at the time in marketing for all consoles. Anyone who thinks kids were going to get excited about the number of "megaoctets" or megabytes didn't live through the 90's. Neo Geo games were expensive because of the direct rom access. The amount of masked roms on the two pcb's of each cartridge far exceeded anything available to consumers at the time, and the chips weren't cheap. The limited runs of the niche product kept the games expensive as the system aged.
  9. Yes, this would've been a hell 9f a lot easier some years ago. There's alway Chronsega on Youtube, but he used emulators. Good luck growing your collection.
  10. Back in the 90's I recall frequent comments online that a lot of gamers were in MN. Not sure if it holds true anymore. Perhaps in the retrogaming community.
  11. Joe is Game Sack, so it should be okay without Dave, though I will miss Dave's friendly and honest reviews, as well as the banter between the pair. Thanks for the mention, Reaperman. These threads always make me sad about what I feel certain our channel could've been. My two brothers agreed to team up with me because we thought we stood more of a chance together, but they didn't share my thirst to create content. It's difficult to go on alone, especially considering the ridiculous amount of free time making videos eats up.
  12. Funcoland only sold Neo Geo for a short while at select locations, from what I recall. They should have ordered new games if they were rolling in it. Everything at Funco was used.
  13. How would you catch the eggs with the gun?
  14. You don't need to mod the FM unit. You can connect the RGB cable to the system and a standard AV cable to the FM unit for sound. Works fine.
