Was at a local Disc Replay(Midwest used store mostly run by stoners) and they had a used Dualshock 3 and Sixaxis. Bought that shit up. Real PS3 controllers are kind of hard to find these days.

Honestly at fullscreen that might be my preferred way to play Sonic, at least parts of Sonic 2 and probably CD.

HD Retrovision?

I don't have any but their Genesis component cables are held in really high regard. They also sell PlayStation and Saturn adapters for their Genesis cables.

I didn't know someone patched the PS2 version of Phantasy Star Generation 2 in English!

https://cdromance.com/ps2-iso/sega-ages-2500-series-vol-17-phantasy-star-generation2-english-patched/

It runs kinda not bad on my phone...  The battles looks great!... but those cut scenes are a bit jarring what with the art style though.

Finally got the English patch for Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 :jeb I didn't realize it ever got finished and released, but it's a damn near complete translation of everything. There's a handful of stuff deep into the options that I have no clue what it is even in there for or what it does that isn't translated and that's about it. English translation with everyone renamed, everyone unlocked, and all non AJPW guys given their proper looks :lawd Truly the GOAT wrestling game. Especially at the hard and expert levels, it's fascinating how great the AI is and how you have to adjust your game plan for different guys and styles. Playing against a shootstyle/MMA guy is vastly different than against a junior or against a brawler or against a regular heavyweight. Even from there, there's still variations between individual wrestlers where a brawler like Bruiser Brody will have a much different set of reversals and logic than a brawler like Vader.

This game is 20 years old, based on an engine that started in 1996. It's still deeper and more satisfying and fun than any wrestling game released since with the exception of perhaps King of Colosseum 2 which is probably overly complex in certain aspects but also is more about putting on good matches for the audience as opposed to just winning matches (and you have to know the different styles for different audiences, which is also a thing in the later Fire Pro games and KOC2 is basically a 3D version of Fire Pro.). Sure No Mercy has gimmick matches and the storymode stuff and slightly better graphics and all the WWF guys, but the gameplay is dumbed down, it isn't as challenging, and multiple aspects are just completely removed because they didn't apply to US wrestling at the time (such the MMA mode, the no selling of head drops into counters, super specials, etc).
 t
I actually imported this and played it with a gameshark on my N64 back in the day :jeb Also had Fire Pro D for Dreamcast :jeb And KOC2 and Wrestle Kingdom on PS2. Sucks there hasn't been a real wrestling game out of Japan in damn near 15 years at this point. Fire Pro World having to rely on user generated content completely just ain't the same.

Why not?

They're desperate for marketshare and aside from Forza and maybe Gears I don't see a lot else that's promising. They'll run out of ideas eventually.

So I saw a thread on all of Mario game deaths in a few days and it said that the Fire Emblem 1 NES release on Switch with all the nice quality of life stuff like FF and turn rewind and save states is also disappearing in a few days.

Is FE1 any good? I usually feel like 8-bit stuff is way too dated gameplay-wise but I saw a review that said with the QoL stuff it holds up as a tactics game. If I had to choose between playing FE Awakening on 3ds or this version of FE1 NES as my next FE and didn't care about fucking thousand your old loli dragons, which is the better tactics game?

I picked up a bunch of arcade hardware in the past months

Sega Naomi + Slashout, a fun forgotten Sega hack and slash games. I actually accidentally bought the Naomi that came with it, the online translator wasnt clear if it was included, and I basically paid /3 of the price on ebay for the cart. So yay, Bonus Sega Naomi. Soon, I will be able to build a house out of Naomis.
Namco System 246 + Gundam DX, Gundam Seed 2. This should be interesting, when it gets there.
Rage of the Dragon MVS, a fun Garou ERA fighting game based on Double Dragon
Real Bout Fatal Fury. I didnt have that one. It's fun.
Fighter History Dynamite. It's alright. Very colorful
GanGan, or Aggressor of dark kombat. Not bad!
Spinal Breaker, a shooter in the spirit of Cabal. There are some very uhh, late '80 racial stereotypes in this game. What the fuck  :doge
X-Men Vs Street Fighters! Such a classic.

Why are people on resetera still promoting the Framemeister, is this still 2012

Busted out the VIRTUAL BOYS to try them out - no surprise, they have issues (virtual boys are very problematic).
I found someone online who repairs the headset piece so I am sending them out this week.

FE Awakening is what revived the series and a fantastic game.
I'm also a big fan of Echoes of Valencia, which is a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, the 2nd game in the series.

Not sure about buying Fire Emblem NES on Switch at this point.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon on DS is an excellent remake of the same game that was also released on Wii U.
One of those Nintendo things to not bring that back with a 'remaster' of sorts but instead release the very first 8 bit Fire Emblem relic with a limited release instead of adding it to their Switch NES library :dizzy

It's amazing how much VB-related stuff is going for nowadays. I wanted one just as a talking piece (and maybe to try Jack Bros) but then looked at the prices and noped the fuck right back out. Jaguar is the same way, from a system you couldn't give away back in the day, now it's going for $300-400+.

The novelty of being the first SMT-related release in the US is what interests me. Wario Land I'd love to try too, and it was such a missed opportunity that the 3DS never got VB games on its virtual console (or a remake of this specific game).

- Virtual League Baseball

To have all US games

That said pretty much most VB games are shit

Wow, prices have only continued to go up- I sold mine for like $400 a few years ago.   Originally paid ten bucks for it.  Not the best game like demi said.

I remember liking Wario Land.   Then again, I didnít have to pay for that paperweight of a device since it was my friends, so that probably made it easier to enjoy the headache inducing reds of virtua boy.

How is playing DS games on an emulator given the whole split screen thing?

Since I'm on a SaGa kick, I was looking at the history of releases and saw I never picked up SaGa/FFL 2/3 remakes on DS that were Japan only. Not even sure if my DS works these days or if I'd want to play anything on actual DS hardware anymore. 3DS still nice, but DS kinda olddddddd.

Wonder if I should play them on an emulator if I ever want to give them a try.

The emulators just put the two screens on top of each other. If you need to tap you can click with your mouse. Kinda wonky sometimes for games where you use the stylus a lot, but if the game is just one that displays stuff on the second screen and you control normally then it's perfectly fine.

You do know DS flash carts work on 3DS too? Just get a compatible DS flash cart

Only the old 3DS plays carts, right?

I'm using the XL and I thought they removed DS cart BC.

*edit* Wait, they never removed DS BC? I wonder why I thought they did. Maybe I was thinking about GBA BC with DS?

Yes they removed GBA on the DSi + 3DS

You can play DS games just fine on 3DS

There are 3DS flashcarts, and DS flashcarts, which are compatible with 3DS depending on the flashcart (information easily available)

I'll keep this in mind for the future, for now I'll probably just grab SaGa 2/3 used physical for my collection since now I know I can play them on my 3ds (don't mind playing them in Japanese, if I ever get to them).
