  1. Custodian is only a few years old, just FYI. It's not among the orignal commercial releases. I'm curious though - which homebrews do you rate above which commercial releases?
  2. A quick tip for Iron Soldier, as I don't think it's mentioned in the manual: you can pivot much more quickly if you hold down A+C while turning. It speeds up your movement just enough to make things easier.
  3. I have zero desire to use any cheats in AvP. The game is all about tension and atmosphere. If you take away the need to play carefully, conserve ammo, and watch your health, then you take away the game experience itself. I enjoy getting lost in the game. I played AvP to death back in the day. But then I set it down for 16 years or so and just came back to it last year. I had forgotten where most of the keycards were and had to map out the game by hand, from scratch. It was amazing. It was easily one of the most memorable game experiences of my past five years. Have you ever wanted to go back and experience one of your favorite games for the first time again? This was much like that. Regarding the self destruct sequence, you do have to switch floors. The self destruct is on sub-level 2. The escape pod is on sub-level 5. It's much easier to get to your escape pod if you do a dry run just before hitting the switch, so that you can clear out all the enemies ahead of time. With a clear path to the escape pod it's not too hard at all.
  4. This is awesome! Just to make sure, the "single" option for Biniax has both Biniax and Biniax 2 on one cart, right?
  5. I was unaware of Metal Mutant until now. Sounds sketchy though - Atari, always desperate for software for their consoles, turned down a game that was ready to go? Anyway, why Bitchy? Because I have a complete commercial Lynx collection and have moved on to homebrew and obscurities, because I played the slider game demos made by the same guy and they're addicting, and because boobs, I guess.
  6. I'm kinda split on this, but my $0.02 are mostly in line with KevinMos3. I felt let down reading MacRorie's update. I would have loved to have bought the prototypes myself in order to get them to Carl Forhan for free distribution and saleable printed copies. The community would get the roms and I would have the unique originals - a win-win. When I learned that the auction was over before it had even been posted here, I felt equally bummed. I don't think MacRorie is doing what he said he was going to do. Yeah, he'll release the roms...eventually. But first he wants to make back his purchase price by taking advantage of fans too impatient to wait another year to see these protos. If things go optimally for him, he'll come out of this with the original prototypes, essentially for free, and he'll make profit off of whatever additional orders roll in. It's like he wants to have his cake and eat it too. At the same time, he has every right to do what he's doing. I'm not entitled to any of this content. And I would probably buy a few of these on cartridge anyway, to add to my collection. It's just the releasing of the roms after a year that bothers me.
  7. Totally jealous. I'd pay decent money for a copy of Bitchy.

    Heretic

    You'd have to check with the folks at Jaguar Sector III. Make sure to bring a few grains of salt with you.
  9. Do you guys seriously love Highlander? I tried it once for maybe 20 minutes and thought it was hot trash, and I always thought that was the general consensus as well. I'll gladly give it another shot if you gents think it's worth it.
  10. Cybermorph isn't a bad game by any stretch. It hasn't aged well, but in 1994 it was pretty cool. I was actually impressed by the sound quality more than anything else at the time, but even graphically it was impressive. The only thing comparable I had seen at the time was Star Fox, and Cybermorph was much smoother, more colorful, more varied in gameplay, etc.
  11. The value of a sealed Jaguar AvP just shot up tremendously in the past year or so. Prior to that, it hovered around the $100-150 range for many years. I only know because I bought one about 5 years ago and I've watched the value ever since.
  12. The Saturn wasn't as big as the Playstation or N64, but it was comparable. The Jaguar was not. The Saturn was far more successful than the Jaguar. You can't compare the obscurity of the two. Also, I see Saturn stuff in nearly every used game store I walk into. I hardly ever see Jaguar stuff anymore.
  13. The fanbase has waited 25ish years already. What difference will another week or month or so make? It's enough to know this stuff will be released at some point. (Please give me some soup when the time comes.)
  14. I don't play any sports games aside from racing, or tongue-in-cheek titles like Basketbrawl or NBA Jam. I've put less than one hour combined into NFL Football, Awesome Golf, Baseball Heroes, Malibu Bikini Volleyball, European Soccer, Hockey, Jimmy Connor, World Class Fussball, and Tournament Cyberball. I absolutely don't want to dissuade anyone from any creative Lynx project - just saying the interest isn't there for me.
  15. I got mine today as well, and my box was similarly beaten to hell after sitting at various post offices for 3+ weeks. But thanks to Gaztee's superb packaging job, everything inside looks great. Thank you, Gaztee, for the tremendous effort you've put into everything. I have no idea how much time and work it took to get all these wonderful games into our hands.
