some of the old uk TV's did that when connecting via RGB euro SCART.  The image is slightly aligned to the left.

you probably have to get into your TV's hidden system menu and play around but you could bork your TV doing this.

120Hz Comes to Consoles
In April, we added variable refresh rate, 1440p resolution support, and auto low latency mode. But we aren't done just yet. In May, we're adding support for additional panel refresh rates. Gamers with gaming monitors and televisions that support a 120Hz refresh rate can now turn on 120Hz support for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions. This high refresh rate option means you can now take full advantage of displays with 120Hz capabilities.

Haven't watched the full video yet and it may all be bullshit, but my friend just sent me this link.
They think it's going to be this.


I don't know if this is true or reliable

*cough very rough translations for the sorcerian article*
The guy with the dog mask is a tipster reporting that this a a big hit RPG that needs no introduction, you can choose freely the scenarios and the game has a groundbreaking magic system!

Socerian originally appeared on pc and in the game the player can choose the characters and scenarios which is a big appeal.  From the original game 7 scenarios made it bringing a total of 10 scenarios.  There are 60 jobs to perform and variety of magic.  The music composition is from Kenji Kawai.  Do not miss the fun!!
Started playing the Witcher 3 game of the year edition.  Really liking the mood and setting despite slightly buggy gameplay and almost unfair predicaments it places you into very early on in the game when you are underpowered and under levelled....

saw one for sale earlier but decided to research a bit more on this lag...

also saw a spectrum for sale too
that's a problem with pc engine shooties. Even Download has horrible sound effects.  It needs vol control for the sound effects.
I'm in the middle of watching  this right now but from 7.31 there is an interesting segment from Masayuki Suzuki who was as NCS/Masaya
Quote from: soop on 04/20/2018, 11:44 AMdoes it say "rape sux" on that wall?
I always thought it said "Rare Sux" because they left Nintendo and went to Microsoft..

Quote from: guest on 04/19/2018, 12:05 PMThe ideal way to play a PC Engine is on a 13" tube TV with a tiny mono speaker. Because that's really the common play experience of the day.
Reminds me of the nintendo dungeon...
For its 40th anniversary celebration SNK will announce new hardware

coming back to this thread I honestly feel the pc engine sound chip benefits greatly when the audio is fed through  a sound equaliser.

I just been trying my hand with DaVinci video editing and the sound equaliser in that while I'm getting to grips with it I am almost happy to get my captures to sound almost as it did when I hooked my pce to an old analogue amp I owned for 20 years. But sadly one of the audio channels is screwed up so I only get sound coming from 1 speaker...

Just like gamers today struggling to get their fancy consoles to display the correct brightness/tones and saturations on their high end 4k screens.  Old systems like the pc engine should be hooked to audio systems and calibrated to sound great.
Now I wonder if I can make Rastan Saga 2 sing?

Quote from: Everblue on 04/16/2018, 09:05 AMI find that the PCE controller cable are too short, same with the Super Famicom's. I wonder if the idea is to hook up the console only when you are going to play, place the controller on the floor as far from the TV as possible, then sit a couple of feet on the floor, away from the console.
Sakura's stage from SF Alpha/Zero 2 I thought conveyed a typical Japanese gamer back in the day.

yup it's mostly gaming related.  Sort of like WhatsApp for gaming.

Quote from: guest on 04/11/2018, 01:21 PMYep.  It's one of the few Arcade Card games, which likely explains the cost (late game made in small quantities).
I mean @ Soop has listed it in the Huey section

This just hit the xbox stores today.  I 've downloaded it but had little time to play.  Looks like the xbox version is digital only.

"contains a speedrun mode as well as the addition of a "blood" setting that lets players determine the quantity of blood on display in the game".

I'm not liking this that much but it's unique and again put a few minutes just wandering around.

Which both are also available on other platforms.

You can look into Red Dead Redemption. the xbox 360 version is backwardly compatible with xbox one and just a few hours ago MS uploaded a patch to bump the resolution playing it on 1X brings the game up to 4k or it can supersampling scale it down to 1080p on non 4k screens
If there is it probably be in Japanese but I couldn't see any but then I haven't looked at everything yet. 

Few more pics
Quote from: TheClash603 on 04/09/2018, 11:30 PMI wish there were two pics for each game at least, one of the box and another of gameplay.  Maybe there is?

The mag is roughly 230-ish pages of cataloging pc engine games and peripherals and also including pc engine publications around that period ie pc engine gekkan, fan etc.
