    I'm still in love with the shire.

  • Interests
    I'm mostly an 8bit gaming fan, but I've been known to wander. I grew up playing NES, SNES,PS1,and N64. I also really like Golf, Tennis, board games, and taking my bulldog for a walk.
  • Currently Playing
    Whatever I feel like. That's generally how I role, but right now I'm playing 3DS mostly. I also recently purchased an Analogue NT Mini Noir V2, so I hope to give it some attention. I'm really looking forward to getting into the famicom library.
  • Playing Next
    Not sure. I hope to play with the various cores on the NT Mini, so probably some games related to them.

  1. Found this set Like New in box for $200 shipped 2 weeks ago on eBay. It looks like it was used by a very meticulous person for a few months and put back in the box with all of the original packaging. That or it was a store return. Either way it works like new.
  2. LCD Screen: Wii U gamepad screen: LCD Screen up close: I think it looks pretty good on a Computer LCD screen and on the Wii U gamepad
  3. I can confirm that the Wii U pro controller and gamepad both have rumble when playing Drill Dozer. The pro controller felt like it had about twice as much rumble.
  4. You could use the Wii All stars disc. Or the original versions on the Virtual console, which I also have installed. I have the All stars disc and I find that they aren’t as accurate as the originals on the Virtual console. When I say accurate they feel laggy to me in comparison. The Advance versions just look so nice! Like upgraded Snes versions of the game.
  5. I’m currently playing Aria of Sorrow for the first time on the Wii U and it’s been great so far. I enjoy the futuristic storyline and the Rpg elements. I haven’t played Castlevania since the original on the nes so this feels like a completely different game in many ways. The sprites look great to me and I have enjoyed the overall aesthetic of the game. I’ve really been spoiled by all of the great GBA games available on the Wii U. I’m also playing Mario Vs Donkey Kong, Minish cap, fire emblem, Metroid Fusion, Advance War 1&2, Drill Dozer, Golden Sun, and the Super Mario Advance games.
  6. I’m surprised Nintendo is willing to just let these games disappear into obscurity. But at the same time they are in business to make money. It will probably be a fan project one day involving the PSVR somehow.
  7. I’ve had my eye on those for a while. You’ll have to let me know if it lives up to all the praise. I’ve been wanting to upgrade my 60” plasma to one of those.
  8. Atari 7800 for me. Nothing beats playing Robotron 2084 with an Edladdin Super twin on the 7800 for me.
  9. I’m not sure where the Virtual console falls into this equation. I’ve purchased way more retro games recently on the Wii U virtual console. I especially like all of the NES, SNES, and TurboGrafx games. It’s the accessibility that gets me. Well that and the save states, and the feeling that I’ve paid my money for many games that I’ve only emulated through the years.
  10. I wish I had a Data to compete with when I was a kid. I’d be much better today.
  11. That was my first computer, not the first one I used. My father bought and sold used office equipment through the late 70s and continues to this day. He had warehouses that had pallets of computer parts on them. I remember playing with IBM 5150s, Macintosh computers of various models, and many generic looking office computers that looked like they were purchased at radio shack. I never played with punch card systems, but I’ve messed with many computers of various kinds. Ofcourse not for very long because I was very young and would usually get found out quickly by my fathers employees. One of my saddest memories was in the late 90s and early 00s when my Dad had me clean out an old warehouse full of old computers and just throw them in dumpsters. I can’t tell you how many Ibm 5150s, Apple fat macs, old monitors, keyboards, floppy drives/media, and various peripherals I’ve thrown away. I’ve shown my Dad how much that stuff goes for now on eBay and it makes him upset. But nobody knew that vintage computing would ever become a hobby. They just collected dust for almost 10 years and we needed the space.
  12. It would have been interesting if Nintendo would have continued the floppy drive on the NES instead of cartridges. I think it would have been nice to have a good collection of floppy’s instead of carts. I never had cassettes on computers growing up. My first home computer was a packard bell with a 60hz pentium with compact disc and 3.5” floppy. Now that I’m getting older I’m more interested in owning an older tape deck computer like the coleco Adam just to have the experience.
  13. I won’t dispute the masterpiece part, but for me I’ll take Wind Waker or Link to the past.
  14. If I understand your question then it would mean that you tried the game initially because you thought you would like it because everyone else praised it as being amazing? I’d say Breath of the Wild. I enjoy the mechanics and exploration a little bit. But after exploring a mostly empty world I was bored. I also didn’t enjoy the shrines and wished for real dungeons that were lengthy and more involved. I thought the divine beasts were also just alright. I’ve forced myself to try and replay it many times. I tried it on Cemu with all of the cheats enabled. Still just a pretty tech demo that I don’t want to spend more than 20 or 30 minutes in every few months. This is pretty much how I felt about half life 2 at the time except it actually had a story. It was just a story that I couldn’t relate to or didn’t care much about. But those game physics were amazing and fun to play with for 20-30 minutes every now and then.
  15. The Amico is actually more interesting to me than all of the other current consoles. I don’t mean this as an insult but the scalpers might be so disinterested that the people who actually want one can buy it.
