The turboGrafx-16 looks wicked. I'm curious if the price will drop; I picked up my PS Classic for $20 after it bombed but Sony set that thing up for failure by making half the games their 50hz PAL versions for no reason. But yeah...I'm DEFINITELY up to my limit on emulator boxes lol. I've got a nice little mini-setup with the Genesis, NES, SNES (modded) and PS Classic (modded). Honestly could just emulate everything on my PC but I love to tinker with these things.

You're in for a treat if you're just now discovering the PS1! That whole generation gets a bad rap for being the first to venture into 3d but there are some downright beautiful and imaginative games in there. I've had so much fun finding all the stuff I missed.

So some people were able to decompile the source code for Super Mario 64 and now you can build yourself an OpenGL port: https://github.com/sm64pc/sm64pc

Having this running natively on Linux is awesome. Would be interesting to see what mods come out if Nintendo would stop filing lawsuits over everything.

Man, I played the living hell out of that game when it came out. I felt it was tailor-made for me. Got scary good at it too, if I do say so myself. But for me, the actual beauty and the total genius of it was that you could put in any CD once it had loaded and use your own fucking tunes as levels, so I would jump, run and careen along to the merry sounds of Orbital, Underworld and one Aphex Twin. Good times indeed. I still find that concept revolutionary. Should have spawned its own genre of games.

That was wild. Recently Beat Saber has a similar feature on PC that generates a custom level based on any track you input but it's not available on the PSVR version and since it's a VR game so you gotta have a bunch of unique peripherals to even play it.

This is Hideo Kojima's favorite game. Really good shit and super cinematic for a sidescroller. Not too long either so it's pretty easy to play through in a few sittings.

I finished Moonwalker for the Sega Genesis last night.

I wish I could have heard what those initial meetings were like.

Producer: "Michael, I don't think it's a good idea... due to your current... ehm... situation... with regards to... ehm... the child abuse allegations... that the game is about you saving children."

Michael Jackson: "Shamona!"

I would really very much like to buy a Switch, but they've been out of stock and scalped at ridiculous prices for a while now... does anyone know where I might find one? Or maybe someone is willing to sell me theirs? :spiteful:

I've actually half-seriously considered picking up a Wii-U this summer because they're not so expensive anymore, the games are dirt cheap, and Super Mario Maker alone is compelling.  I don't really care about staying current-gen or anything (I haven't paid money for a console since I got an n64 and 18 games at a thrift shop for $30 back in like 2004, and the newest console I have is a 360 that came out of the trash last year) but I do worry about the longevity of any systems that came out since online gaming became a thing.  The whole appeal of consoles to me is that they're closed systems.

You've got to install MAME and try the arcade version now, seriously.  I'm not going to say that robots attack you with, pneumatic robo-schlongs in that version, but I'm not going to say DOESN'T happen, either.

They quietly included what is basically Wii Bowling in 51 Clubhouse Games for Switch, and the classic UFO / Duck Hunt type shooting gallery.  The use of multiple Switches to connect is a sorely underused feature I think only Mario Party even used?  I got a discount on this, so for $30 it's a good deal.

I'm cursed with FF12 - I've never actually finished it. I've gotten roughly 80hours in maybe 3 or 4 times and then my data gets corrupted...

 

Time for a retry I think.
