  1. Far as I'm aware it won't work with slims since they patched the memory card exploit by then, but it's fine on any fat PS2 (at least all versions I've tried) No HDD required, but at least do yourself a favor and get some USB storage
  2. Not sure which had em but they're around as parts, I think my cecha is only 15 or 17 but it needs psu and preferably ssd before I mess with it. I already got some as5 on it and slightly bent the heatsink clips so it would be held on tighter. It also needs a new bluray drive since the refurbished one I put in a while ago didn't wanna work after sorting out hdd and cfw on it
  3. Well of course it's better to get upgraded before an issue actually happens, but sometimes that's not the case unfortunately As far as the fan, yea a low priority but better cooling is better cooling and it definitely doesn't hurt if the airflow isn't negativity affected Thermal paste is probably considered mandatory if there's any respect of the system involved, for the effort I'd say silver is a minimum with something better being a plus but not really required to improve the situation PSU could be considered optional but we're considering stock original being 100w more than necessary and getting considerably hot and stuck inside a case with everything else. Peace of mind logic would say just do the later model PSU that provides adequate power and puts out less heat. The most optional part of upgrades is an SSD. Definitely won't hurt the cooling pursuit, and they're not incredibly expensive. Personally I'd go all out for my personal cecha PS3 as I'd want best experience possible with minimal risk to my hardware. More so if it's got cfw or an exploitable ofw. But that's just me.
  4. Chrono Trigger on DS is pretty much the definitive version as it has the most content to offer Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver are DS remakes of gen 2, and imo offer a better experience than the others Tetris DS is a very solid offering, I played the crap out of it I think there was a reasonably decent harvest moon on ds as well
  5. Upgrading to a 19 blade fan helps further, and the biggest help is using a later model PSU, one of the enclosed ones that won't burn your hand
  6. A modified original PS3 paired with a PS4 controller is about as close anyone could get to "best overall" Otherwise it's not entirely optimal to pick any generation specifically as the best. Best revision of a generation, that's a bit different and easier to have a definitive best.
  7. Ocarina and Majora on 3DS are both fine refreshers, Link Between is great if you have a like for the SNES style gameplay, triforce heroes is completely skippable Monster Hunter is a safe bet Animal Crossing New Leaf, decent, the decorator one is probably not worth it Mario Kart 7 is fun Pokemon X/Y decent gen 1 appeal, ruby/sapphire remakes obviously appealing to gen 3 fans, Sun/Moon/Ultra well if you love pokemon That's just from my personal experience with it
  8. If you're a fan and actually want the extras, yes. If you're not using the extras at all, probably not. A good example was Saints Row 2, because it came with a USB drive. You could backup the dlc and profile on that to keep in the case and down the road when you might not be able to download that stuff again, it might be handy. Fallout 3 came with a bobblehead and while not useful, it and the lunchbox make good display items. Playing cards or clothing will probably devalue the CE if you actually use them, so it's not quite as good, and generally it doesn't hold value when you sit on it. Of course there's exceptions out there, but nowadays a collector's edition is just a way to get more money and have a bit of bragging rights.
  9. If you're positive it's due to the lack of shielding I kinda wonder if the carbon paint I have would solve it, as it claims to be shielding
  10. If you have a multimeter it might be best to check voltages on the controller ports, I think dual shock runs on 9v It's likely the fuse that controls the rumble power is blown and just needs swapped
  11. Definitely go with the A/V upgrade, and then possibly look into something like a retrotink if you plan on playing on a modern TV with HDMI
  12. I feel like they're just trying to move some old stock and get people to use their subscription services before they drop Scarlett which was rumored for end-2019
  13. If you can surpass a dozen games that you want on a platform after excluding multi-plat titles (that are mostly the same across 2+ systems), but include superior ports, then you're safe to classify that as more than a small library
  14. A lot of TLC... I bet I could do it based on experience, but it's not exactly something I got funds to tackle for a tutorial
  15. I didn't say that... I stated 2D was a timeless thing As to why Genesis held up better than Saturn is mostly nostalgia and convenience.
  16. WAD installers aren't terribly difficult on real hardware, wananoko or however he spells it makes a WAD installer/uninstaller that proved reliable I do know of the collection mentioned for download and have it on a HDD stashed away... I kinda hoard stuff like that for preservation reasons Kinda why I'm against digital only downloads
  17. PS2 was out sooner, and had about 155mil sales I think xbox or gc was roughly 30mil At the time it was the solid choice if you had to only pick one
  18. Technically thread title is accurate if you consider the quality of discs that Sega typically used being prone to disc rot Otherwise it sorta falls into 2D being easier to achieve "timeless" status as opposed to 3D titles which get dated rather quickly
  19. It could be a simple pin swapping adapter solution, but as-is it wasn't plug and play I was about 10 years old when I did it back in 96, so it's nothing I would have spent much time exploring
  20. I heard it's great, a bit grindy. I would love to see Chrono Trigger get a similar treatment
  21. As someone who bought it on PS4 after the bad news for $20, I definitely need to play it now. I'm happy that I can try it out 2 years later and see all that was added, unlike Sea of Thieves which was like the boating version of NMS, which so far makes it's DLC "limited time only" which makes checking it out a year or two later pointless
  22. Nah, nothing bad happened. It didn't map out however I think nothing worked except pressing down registered as A. I do remember I tested this with road rash and a standard 7800 controller, not the more nes looking controller
