  1. Nice find! Wonder how many Jags/Jag CD's are out there in Japan. Must be less than 5k.
  2. Hey all; the Atari 7800 was my first Atari ever and my second oldest console in my collection after my NES. About 8 years ago now i sent it out to Electronic Sentimentalities for an S-Video/AV mod with Stereo. At the time one of the few premier mod-shops online. https://electronicsentimentalities.com/ Here is the problem; i get beautiful stereo sound for 2600 games and 7800 games, but Pokey chip games only come out of ONE channel. WHY? Is it possible to mod the system these days to get Stereo from 2600, 7800 AND Pokey games? Hate hooking up that mono splitter when playing Pokey titles. Thanks and looking forward to any insight on this!
  3. What is the best thing to do with a loose Ballblazer cart in 2020?

      I have a cleaner copy, so i guess send it in to be used in a BBCQ is the best option if that game doesn't accept the PokeyOne

      Believe all these games can accept a PokeyONE... maybe save your Ballblazer cart to put toward Tep's Donkey Kong Remix when he releases it? Even with PokeyONE's available now, you still need a shell to put these games in. Ballblazer serves two purposes that way.   :)

  4. Congrats on the milestone Switch! Pretty epic. It's the third best selling nintendo console now (after the NES, Wii?) As to Switch online, the free year through Twitch Prime (via Amazon Prime) was fun, but i turned off my "Auto-renew" the other day. I never used the online gaming component, and while the NES/SNES games were fun, certainly nothing i can't play elsewhere already. So yeah, it was fun while it lasted, but for me wholly unnecessary even at $20.
  5. No one has mentioned the 7800 XM in a loooooooong time.  Is that confirmed dead or?  I seem to remember a few people took delivery a few years back.

      I'd get one if it actually came out but like you I've heard nothing.

  6. Dragon's Lair.  Guess you had to be there... Can't get past the damn drawbridge on my 3DO.

      I've Always called it the Best Looking,  Worst Playing game.  I'm intrigued by some other versions of it where they made an actual video game of it.

      If you can rescue Daphne, it turns into a very deep and compelling life simulation in which you manage your relationships and sire offspring as they work to cultivate land, raise and harvest crops, and engage in the kingdom's agrarian economy. If you're successful, it continues for some 50 generations until you arrive at the dawn of the industrial revolution. Naturally, arcade operators weren't too keen on players reaching this very time-consuming endgame, so the difficulty of the action-based introductory segments was ratcheted up considerably.

      It seems timing issues and/or directions vary from platform to platform.

  8. Whens the next Season start? Miss Lynx HSC already!!
  9. Oh yes the Jaguar CD of course (duh, have one.) But the CD-i, Sega CD, even Saturn didn't have one.
  10. Not really fan art per say, but had my original Jag system poster framed; going in the game-room tonight:
  11. Someone was just offering these on sale in here for a better price; and probably even cheaper than it would cost to print and deal with cutting yourself. Just use the search box above and you should be able to find them no problem.
  12. I thought there were two working units still, a red one and the blue one, which had some extra features.
  13. American Hero is quite fun (very campy!); pulled it out recently for a play-through and usually do so every year or two. It does crash sometimes but seems pretty close to complete overall.
  14. Loaded Project Lunar on my Genesis mini today and a bunch of great games. Up next, emulation station! Very easy to do, even easier i'd say than Hackchi for the NES/SNES classic.
