  1. I use a CRT for my retro consoles. It's a very basic Sharp. 20", mono sound. Only one composite/one coax input. I use a y-adapter to combine sound channels. Got it for free last year, when my old CRT kicked the bucket.

    My CRT
  3. Hey guys, I had a quick question. I have an AV Famicom that I play on a flat-screen CRT. The TV supports s-video and I was thinking about getting an RGB mod done. Before I commit to anything, I was wondering if anyone else on here has had this done, and if it's worth the money? Is the picture quality from composite to s-video worth it on my tube television; or would I be better off saving my money? - Regards
  4. I'm glad this topic inspired a debate. My whole issue is the artificial inflation. Just because I'm willing to pay up to X, doesn't mean that's what the item should sell for. My issue is the person bidding with 0 feedback, bidding 15 straight times, who bids 100% exclusively on a specific seller's items. That's what brought up this post in the first place. I actually called out the seller on his BS. I knew he was shill bidding on another account, and he tried to play coy and act like he was on my side. I told him, "If that's the case, remove the shill bids. You have the right as a seller to remove bids from an auction." Guess what? After doing everything but admitting his guilt, he removed the bids. Then the auction took a natural course, not the artificially inflated one.
  5. About 20 years ago, at toys r us, I bought a 32x and a three games from the bargain bin. 20 bucks for the 32x, 5 bucks for each game. They had several copies of, Spider Man: Web Of Fire. Had I known it would be worth so much now, I'd have bought every copy.
  6. I'm getting really disgusted with the amount of shill bidding going on. eBay Doesn't give a crap about it either, even if you report the person, and it's blatantly obvious what they're doing. I've been bidding on retro games, since 2003. I think I'm going to give up eBay; start my own site. lol. Has anyone else noticed this, or had any similar issues with online auctions?
  7. I was happy to see this in the news. However, I have a feeling Nintendo is going to include all the roms built into the board, leaving no ability to hack the hardware. That was the great thing about the Neo Geo X, with the whole sd card thing. Even the atari flashback 2 could be hacked to play real carts. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds.
  8. I would go with the Sega Saturn and Bandai WonderSwan. Though the Saturn did fairly well here in the states, it was a very unappreciated system for it's time. I remember going to Sears and seeing all the Saturn stuff on clearance. They were basically giving stuff away. Had I known then what I know now, I'd have bought it by the boatload. The WonderSwan on the other hand, never made it's way out of Japan. I think it's more obscure than under appreciated; but I never hear anyone talking about it.
  9. The Room 3 (Android) Terraria (Android) Resident Evil (PS1)
  10. Obviously, this question is totally subjective. But what is the census opinion on this? Do you guys think too many people are hopping aboard the retro gaming bandwagon? It seems everyone and their uncle is playing retro games; on YouTube anyways. A lot of people who didn't even grow up in the era seem to be interested as well. Not to mention the people that think retro gaming is a gold mine, who are only in it for reselling. I guess the second question would be, is this causing price inflation on the games? Is it really supply and demand at this point, or has the market--for a lot of otherwise common games--been artificially raised? I scratch my head sometimes when I'm on eBay. Anyone care to give their opinion?
  11. The N64 version for split-screen alone. The PS1 you needed two consoles, the link cable, two copies of the game, and two televisions for multiplayer. Boy did that suck lol. Never played the Saturn version. PC is always good as well.
  12. Add Sonic Mega Collection, Metal Slug Anthology, Sega Genesis Collection, Fatal Fury Battle archives 1+2, and SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1.
  13. It looks like something that you'd use for your time-card at work. Very interesting color scheme; it could have used some wood finish IMO.
