GOG is the only way to go. Valve can shove Steam and DRM up their posterior cavities. I've got 266 GOG titles and counting. Love their sales events. Find some real gems for $5.00 and less. Ok, sorry... back on topic. :-"

High Score Records / Re: Implode High Scores
« on: December 14, 2018, 01:24:46 PM »
DEAR LORD, why should I even bother playing this game?


I never intend to put that much effort into it. Play a quick game once every few years just so I get my money's worth out of it. I was just surprised to not see a high score thread for it. I figured it needed once so here we are. :)
STATUS: This is what you say now, but, five years hence, you and I will both talk about turning over the score counter TWICE and unlocking the OMAKE Arkhan buried deep in the game (a recreation of the shoot-em-up stage from Shadow of the Beast, but in the Egyptian Pyramid Plunderin' universe).
Been five years esty, any luck unlocking OMAKE? Haven't touched the game myself since because, as you had stated, what's the point. :lol:

Just received my copy yesterday. Haven't had a chance to play it yet, but looking forward to it. You guys never cease to amaze. Congrats on another amazing release!

I play quite frequently and have a friend looking to start. What have you got. A list and pics would be helpful.

Sanitarium and the first Amnesia on the PC are really good games for this time of year. Sanitarium is one of those little known games that turns out to be a real gem. Amnesia was the only "horror" game that ever really made me scared to play it in the dark. I remember the first time playing it. Rounded the corner of a hallway and ran face first into a monster. At that very moment my cat jumped up on the entertainment center knocking a picture to the ground behind me. Scared me so bad that I nearly pissed myself. Good times, great games.

Sonic Mania - I really like it and it plays just like the old 16 bit sonics. It feels most similar to a mix between 3 and CD, but graphically it looks like a higher frame count color count Sonic 2 and CD. I liked the old sonics, and like this one too - a great addition to my switch library choices. I wish there was a physical version, but I am glad to have it at all and wanted to support the devs for their great effort.
Still holding out hope for a possible cart release of Sonic Mania. Doubt it'll ever happen, but I'm gonna wait a few months longer and if none materializes, I'll likely pick up the download version.

Recently picked up Cave Story and Has-been Heroes. Cave Story I really enjoyed. HB Heroes, not so much. Looking forward to Mario Odyssey and plan on picking up Skyrim when it releases. Been years since I played through Skyrim and want to give another run through. Splatoon is on my pickup list as well.

Personally, I feel the offerings for Switch has been less than great, but hope thing turn around next year. Year one always tends to be the low point for releases.
Cave Story was really great on the Switch. So many choices for soundtracks and it controlled really well. Plus it's getting (or already has gotten) updates for 2p mode and a few other things. Though, I'm still stuck on the final boss.
I've been stuck on the final boss in the original Cave Story on my Wii for nearly eight years! He's a bastard and the devs should've dialed the difficulty back on him some.
I played at the default difficulty and was able to beat him on the first try. Perhaps I just got lucky. I was down to my last half life bar when I won, so I basically barely won. Was definitely a good game and will be  trying on a harder difficulty at some point.

Last time I was at TMG was when it was in Reading. Might have to check it out this year. Only two hours from me. Thanks for posting about it; as I had completely forgotten that TMG even exists. I've picked up many Turbo games there for really good prices.

Yes, you'll get the opportunity to do so at the Hateno tech lab.

I have been super busy the past few days and haven't had a chance to play much. But I've finally learned how to more easily kill guardians by parrying which has opened up a whole lot of new areas of the map to me.
I spam the time stop ability with them, then run up and take out the legs. If your lucky, you can overturn them and make things so much easier.

Compendium full, 115 shrines found, 324 korok found. Still only 51% complete. Seriously? Great game and overall time consumer. Well worth the price of the game and Switch alone.
70% of the completion percentage is korok seeds, and there are 900.
900??? Good one Nintendo, you always did excel in the completely ridiculous. Best of luck to anyone attempting to hunt them all down.

The system is worth owning just for Twisted. Put a good many hours into PO'ed and Killing Time. There was another fairly decent FPS about a haunted mansion, though the name escapes me. The system had its share of gems, but had an assload of stinkers as well.

I received an email back in July which I had replied to, but I haven't seen any demo disc. I'll just have to wait for the ISO release I suppose. Game definitely look great. Looking forward to the release.

Finally picked up a game controller for the first time in months. Been too busy working and having a blast playing airsoft during my far to little free time. Just started playing Xenoblade Chronicles X which I picked up new for $30 at Target a few months ago and so far have been performing very poorly. Either major grinding is necessary for progression or I'm doing something wrong.

Hop on now and then to read posts during lunch at work, but don't find the time or interest to post on here very often obviously. Hopefully that'll change, but its unlikely.

Added 13 more MVS games from my collection. Also found various MVS mini marquees and paperwork I forgot I had. If there is any interest in them, I can post a list. Some go to the games I have for sale, so they'll be included with the games when sold.

I would probably buy half of your MVS games if you'd ship to Canada...
Well, if I remember correctly I purchased my PC-FX from you, so I owe ya one. If your really interested, we can work something out. Send me a pm and we can go from there.

After a lengthy nap, figured I'd wake this thing up to see if there is any new interest. Might be adding some goods to the list as well.

I remember RetroUSB used to have adapters for Turbobs, but everything else I recall seeing is DIY.
Have one of the RetroUSB installed into a TG16 controller that originally had a bad cord. Controls work great, but the I and II button turbo is erratic. Still happy with the results. Unfortunate he decided to discontinue it.

Is it just a coincidence that this is all popping up so close to April 1st? :-k

I know I can't be the only one who thought about this. People have gone to great length for April Fool's jokes in the past, so who knows. Guess we'll know tomorrow.

Console Chat / Re: DC Unreal Tournament or PCE Art of Fighting?
« on: March 25, 2015, 12:22:22 PM »
I only have a 6 year old Macbook. It had a Windows 7 partition specifically for things like this, but I deleted it when I realized I hadn't booted into it in a year.

I have a couple of really terrible PCs that I only keep around for running Substation Alpha. I haven't a clue to their gaming potential.

I enjoy video games.
I think you are over estimating the requirements for Unreal Tournament GOTY. Any low budget Windows XP machine could run it as long as the cpu is in the 800mhz range and the graphics card is on par with a Nvidia TNT or ATI Rage 128. This includes gpu's like the onboard Intel Extreme graphics. If someone had something like an old Dell laying around, odds are the Dell would run the game fine if the Dell is from 2000 on up.

At any rate, just strikes me as odd that people would get by without a pc in the home. I mean yeah, it can be done, but personally I hate trying to type on tablets and phones, let alone do normal web browsing and online purchases on them. Even for casual use that feels painful to me. I guess though if thats all you got, then thats all you got. If anyone does care to do so though, you can buy cheap Athlon 64 and Core2Duo computers on ebay now. Would make good Xp legacy machines for old games.
I had a 400Mhz/512MB PC back when UT was released and it played the game just fine with a 64mb 3DFX card installed. Ultima 9 on the otherhand hated that PC. I even played through the Half-Life games with that setup with little trouble.

Anyone remember the Nintendo cereal from the late 80's? Two half size bags of different cereal types per box. Great idea at the time, too bad it never stuck.

I'm with everyone else with Nesticle and Genecyst. I remember the team who made them also made a cool Streets of Rage style beat em up game that I played the shit out of. Magic Engine was my third emu. I think it was version 0.8 at that time? Had the emus and bunch of games zipped up and filling up floppies. Memories...
