  1. Or one player has to shoot another player to power them up to shoot a particular robot or each player has part of a super-gun, so they have to cross paths with each other before being able to shoot it, etc. Although, if you don’t want difficulty increasing with more players, you could just need them to cross paths with one other player whether 2, 3 or 4 players.
  2. I would think you could load games from the SD card, just like you could the Wii or the PS2 memory cards. It would seem odd if you couldn’t. Are you referring to something else?
  3. That's exactly why they came up with the FPS Keyboard/Mouse adapters for playstation and xbox, which created all the more controversy. Although, it took them a long time to make the adapters anywhere near as good as a mouse on a PC, they still blew away the dual shock type controllers. For some reason, until late PS3/Xbox 360, 2012-ish, they were pretty rare and the old ones became expensive, probably due to the hate they got. The PS3 ones are harder to find the the Xbox 360 ones, for whatever reason.
  4. Yeah, I have these: https://www.amazon.com/Activision-Games-Casual-Socks-Multicoloured/dp/B075WQSSQF
  5. Probably. Just didn't like how they phrased it like "you know what I heard?", rather than taking five minutes to fact-check.
  6. If anyone's wondering where Atari got the inspiration for the Analog joystick controllers, this might be a contender, from 1978: https://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=2&c=726 and this from Radofin , apparently released in Deutschland in 1976: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1292_Advanced_Programmable_Video_System I always thought they got the idea from the Analog computer joysticks, like the early Apple and IBM ones.
  7. You have the advantage in getting the jr in that you can find a composite modded one very cheap. Just expect to get pounded on shipping from the USA these days.
  8. Give it a try. If you can't get it to work: Channel 3 is ~63 MHz in the USA and the lowest channel in Japan is ~91 MHz. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_channel_frequencies#Japan Here is some light reading:
  9. If it doesn't work, you might need one of these with US plug, plus the BNC to RF cable. Just repost and I'll tell you what you need to do. https://www.ebay.com/itm/RF-To-AV-Analog-TV-Receiver-Converter-Modulator-Power-Adapter-USB-US-EU-Plug/
  10. Maybe its iOmega zip disks...🙃 ...or perhaps the Jaz?
  11. This is pretty great. Almost 7000 views and a 94% like percentage for his positive views. 450 thumbs ups. It's funny people accused him of selling out for $40 in merchandise, but could it be because he is one of the few people who actually knows what he's talking about because he's actually used the console, instead of throwing around anecdotes based on presumption? Everyone who's used it seems to like it a lot. I think it's cool and funny he defiantly wears it all and has the mug while confronting the haters.
  12. Polymega, LOL. What I need is something like a NUC that is just powerful and affordable enough to run anything in RetroArch as well as PS2 and WiiU. Just paying off some bills first and trying to find a suitable mini PC box. The best thing about the Flashback 9 is it's utterly portable and nearly disposable, so I'd like a mini PC box like that.
  13. The Sinden works with PCs (unix?)(and now PS1/PS2), and the Amico has USB ports, so something could probably be fanagled through a firmware upgrade. It would only be carnival games or shooting ping pong balls at something to keep it at E10+.
