Ordered one.

I also received my Triple Bypass modded model 2 genesis and it’s fucking amazing. The audio is fuckawesome now and the visual  improvements are legit.

Gamesack put up another "Left in Japan" video and one game featured was Kyuutenkai: Fantasic Pinball.  Never heard of this before- it's a fantasy-themed pinball game made by Technosoft/Tecno Soft and released in 1995.  They ported Devil's Crush to the Genesis and this appears to be similarly-themed.



The Saturn version sells for ridiculous prices, but the PS1 version is pretty cheap.  Ordered a copy for $24.

Never got the copy I bought on eBay.  Ordered another copy I found from a German seller for $30-something and that just arrived- disc in good shape and manual pretty good as described.  Case is fucked up- it looks like this came in one of the older PS1-specfic "fat" cases and somebody cut up the inserts in the front and back to fit in a regular jewel case.  They even glued the spine to the side of the back part.  Yuck.  :yuck 

Going to keep this copy though because I can't find any others for sale- or rather, there are other ones listed, but I noticed something kinda fucked-up.  All of them are using the same photo despite being from different sellers.   :lol   Amazon and Buyee also had the same photo up for listings from different sellers. 

If you check these sellers, they're all selling the same stuff for varying prices and the seller ratings have started to fall over the last 12 months.  Somebody is having some fun pretending to be different storefronts all over the place.  Sounds exhausting.

Ripped the game.  It doesn't work on PS1 emulators.
:neogaf

You just get a black screen after selecting memory card options.  Gonna try it on the PS Classic after I do the hacking thang.  Guess if that doesn't work I'll have a reason to hook up the PS2 again.

I've been stuck in retro mode for the last month and the latency has fucking RUINED modern shit for me.

I turned on my PS4 last night to try Sonic Mania and the delay between when I press a button and when something happens on the screen made me furious. Check it out, I'm now officially a cranky old man (goes back to Castlevania on DS with its 7ms latency)

If you guys are talking about that pinball game...I didn't try it on the Pie when I made that post.   :P  Used some Windows emus.  Had no idea that a handful of PS1 games don't work right.

Hey you holier-than-thou ding-dongs, I don't care if you play it on a Pi or the original hardware or your mom's butthole, all that matters is that you're playing old games because old games are better and don't try to fuck you

I too hate input lag. Haven't played Sonic Mania, but are you sure it's not caused by your TV? Does it have a game mode and are you using it? I recently switched hdmi inputs on my TV, forgot to turn on game mode before starting to play Ritual of the Night and was really disappointed by the lag; then I realized game mode was off and the game was actually fine.

I'm moving some things around so I brought all my stuff to work. The left Philips is a HDTV CRT which weighs far too much (that's my coworker's, mostly for Bemani games). Commodore monitor I'd be happy to give to anyone local in Seattle; we made a custom Svideo cable for it. The Sony is a BVM capable of 1080i and is the single greatest television I have ever seen in my life and it's my main display. Panasonic PVM is big, bright, and beautiful. Sony at the bottom is one of the last CRT monitors they did and is god-tier but I might have to give this to someone as it weighs waaaaaaaaaaay too much and takes up too much space.

Also in that picture: Virtua Fighter 3 arcade board and Apple //e

LOL at the guy saying you should factor in the price of genuine Sega CD games sold on ebay when considering the cost. "Piracy is clever, all games are free"
(By the way, a real Sega CD can boot CD-Rs, there is no copy protection.)
Anyway, nice product, but too expensive for my taste since I already have an Everdrive and a working Sega CD unit.
And since Sega CD support may be coming to Everdrive, I'm going to hold off for now.

Sooo I've been playing Chrono Trigger on the DS and

WHY THE FUCK DID NOBODY LEARN FROM FUCKING CHRONO TRIGGER? Seriously there are so many QOL improvements to the JRPG genre in this game it makes me furious that nobody rolled with any of these, seriously what in the actual fuck, how just how

Best feature: WALKING AROUND WHILE PEOPLE ARE TALKING

Also here's an important question: Should I be playing it on my DS, or should I be playing the SNES version (I have access to both)

Not the stuff that's clearly holy grails (or artificially inflated titles) but just random games you wouldn't think of.

Remember DrillDozer, the game nobody gave two shits about and was clearanced as low as $5?

Averages between $75-90 CIB on eBay - with Cart Only going as high as $50

I spent a lot of time on that on Dreamcast.  I wish there was a version on modern consoles.  The closest would be doing the freeway races in Midnight Club LA.  I don't think I did more than 4 or 5 story missions in that game, I would just challenge randoms on the freeway.

Got a good deal on a Japanese NeoGeo mini with 2 pads.  The stick on the unit and pads is analog, which I'm not thrilled about (hard to pull off moves in KOF for me) but otherwise it's pretty nice.  Not sure if I'm going to keep it at work as part of my mini arcade or bring it home since it has HDMI out.

Almost bought one when they were being dumped last week but passed.  Will probably get one when they hit $50 or so.

For $50 it would be a good pick up, especially if you get 1 or 2 pads with it.

I played with it a bit more yesterday and had a good game in Garou and was able to pull off specials pretty easily with Terry using the little stick, I guess I must just suck at KOF.  The screen is really nice and it sounds good through headphones.  I still need to check out how well it works via HDMI on a TV.

Yeah I know it sucks. The problem is youtube videos talking about GBA Hidden Gems such as MetalJesus and his videos..

I am also looking for this game, and also a bunch of other GBA games which are seemingly rare now :(

I did pick up some nice gba games Ill post it soon
