Retro Chat / Pier Solar for Mega Drive... AND Dreamcast! (SOON)
« on: August 17, 2014, 00:58:14 AM »
Hey gang, one last one I wanted to bring up while I think of it and again, I couldn't find a thread so thought I'd start one, the MIGHTY Dreamcast refuses to die huh!! The gorgeous Pier Solar which came out for Mega Drive on its 20th anniversary and it has since been announced as a HD Remake/rerelease on Dreamcast and many other major platforms.

Has anyone played the Mega Drive version? Do any of you plan to get it when it comes out? I tend to pledge/back these quite early on so my Dreamcast copy has been paid for about a year lol. I'm interested to know what you guys all think of this one, it will probably be too long of a game for me to ever complete but I have to own it, its on DC after allĀ  :4:

Retro Handhelds & Tabletops / Sega Game Gear thread

Has anyone seen Halley Wars on the Game Gear? I think its one of the rare GG only games out there (as in, it wasn't on SMS first then ported) are there any other titles like this that aren't on SMS as well? Be very interested to hear the list, I bet its short lol

Its pretty nice so far, I only had a quick go on it and I realised that I actually have over 20 games for the GG now... I must say I'm surprised I have that many I thought I had a lot less... need to google some more games and see whats around

Hey guys

so we all love giant japanese robots, from all the excellent old 70s/80s classic cartoons such as

MAZINGA Z
GIGANTOR
DAIMOS
GOLDORACK

not to mention http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju

I can't think of any others at the moment but other obvious ones are Gundam Wing, Robotech and to a lesser extent Escaflowne etc

so we all know that giant robots piloted by humans are awesome, especially in video games such as Armored Core, Metal Gear Solid, Battletech, Mech Warrior/Mech Assault etc...

but no one has ever done a REALLY good movie about this sort of thing... enter PACIFIC RIM!!

check out the trailer and tell me it doesn't get your nerdy robot loving loins boiling with anticipation!!

could this be THE greatest moment in the history of nerds? I can't wait for this film it looks insane and I literally had a nerd-gasm when watching it lol

let me know what you guys think

Hey gang... so I've been trying to find some more roms for my FPse for droid which is the emulator for the playstation 1. I've been receiving a lot of app updates to FPse over the market this week and thought I'd try it out again. I've got the games listed below working quite nicely so far:

Broken Sword Shadow Of The Templars
Castlevania Symphony Of The Night
Final Fantasy Origins
Medievil
Megaman x5
Metal Slug
Oddworld Abe's Oddysee
Crash Bandicoot
Wild 9

Now I know from experience that not all roms are born equal, and I have struggled to find working ones for the FPse on a regular basis so for those of you struggling PM me and I'll send you links to the most reliable ROM sites I've come across

Does anyone know of any other games that work well on FPse?? I have seen a list of compatible titles but its definitely not set in stone because it says I shouldn't be able to run SOTN but I can lol

be interested to hear if anyone else emulates on an android device and if so what games and what system

Marketplace / does anyone have a Mega Drive 2 they would swap?
« on: October 16, 2012, 00:49:12 AM »
Hi guys, I'm after an MD 2, no leads or controllers required , just the power supply I guess

I have 1 spare Master System MK2, a Spare white later model Dreamcast, and 3 faulty but repairable Game Gears if anyone would be willing to trade? IF it works I would also trade my MK1 MD for it as I need the stereo sound etc

Currently I have an MD1, SMCD 2 and 32x and the sound from the 32x doesn't work. I CURRENTLY can only run sound from the 32x via the Mega CD audio out ports to red and white composite but this doesn't seem to be sending the full sound, its only sending partial sound. For an example of the problem, when the Sonic/Sega Screen shows at the start of every Sega CD game there is no sound. During Earthworm Jim SE there is no jingle during loading and no gun sound effects or other SE etc... and I've tried different audio leads, I've tried the MD and MCD without the 32x and its still the same but thankfully the MD and MCD on their own send the sound to the TV perfectly fine via the SMD/SMS mk1 AV cable. so I really need/want the MD2 to get proper sound when using the 32x

Any takers please contact me via pm and we can arrange. The condition is not a big issue as long as it turns on

So I've had a Lynx for years and knew about the existance of the ComLynx facility vaguely for a while but I had NEVER seen it work in the flesh... I was not prepared for just how impressive it was!

have a look at this vid from Retrovision this past weekend in which Laird and I play Xybots over ComLynx, this is my first time! it was brilliant

so what do you guys think? I loved this and really wish I knew someone with a Lynx nearby I'd play this all the time!!

Hi guys

I'm interested in picking up a Turbografx for cheap, I don't know if you guys swap or outright sell or what but I have 2 spare Dreamcasts, a Spare SMS MK 2 and I have a couple of old faulty Game Gears that someone could, if they know how, repair and use

so I'm looking for the following:

PAL Turbo Grafx 16 + 1 controller and leads (no games necessary)

assuming I get one I would also like Alien Crush specifically and any action/RPG/platforming games that people can recommend

cheers guys

Marketplace / got some bits I don't want anymore... any takers?
« on: August 07, 2012, 11:22:56 AM »
Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but I have a bunch of old games I don't want, just a dozen or so really.

consisting of 2 32x carts and 3 (I think) Game Gear carts along with a couple of 360 games I don't want/can't be bothered to try and finish anymore

when I get home I'll post a picture of all the swag and if anyone wants them let me know, if this is in the wrong section please let me know or just move for me

thanks!!

Hey guys, so I tried playing this again last night and for some strange reason whenever I seem to finish a stage in part 2 it seems to just revert to the title screen, has anyone heard of this? its not like a crash during the game, it should progress but simply returns to the menu. has anyone heard of demo version cartridges maybe? I mean mine doesn't say DEMO or anything so I have no idea. I'll upload a vid later on of my playthrough and you'll see what I mean

thanks

Hey gang,

I can't remember making a thread about my channel yet, and I hope its ok to do one, I just wanted to share the channel with you guys here and see what you think, I'm still kind of struggling to find a happy medium with regards to format and layout of my actual videos but I've got some nice stuff on there and if anyone would like to subscribe I'm more than happy to subscribe back in return!

I specialise in Dreamcast stuff but I have also uploaded (and plan to upload more of) lots of older stuff like Saturn, Mega Drive, 32x etc, I'm also doing walkthroughs for games such as Evil Twin and Slave Zero on DC and Shadow Of The Collossus on PS2.

All suggestions, recommendations and/or requests are welcomed/encouraged!

Again, I'm pretty sure I haven't made a thread about this yet, hope its ok to do so, the link to my channel is below:

http://www.youtube.com/user/Antonyv1982?feature=mhee

again please make suggestions, comments and/or requests here or on my channel feed, I monitor it regularly!

I'm going to upload some more stuff tonight, will probably be my last upload before my wedding in 2 weeks!!

Enjoy and I look forward to hearing your thoughts

Hey guys, I was REALLY tempted to get this recently but they appear to still be out of stock, anyone bought this? And if so how was it? I loved the looks of it but I won't pay ebay prices if it comes up lol

Does anyone know if they are still working on this or not?

Introductions / Hey gang, just joined
« on: March 14, 2012, 12:29:23 PM »
Hey everyone, Laird invited me to join the site so I thought what the hey, it all looks pretty awesome soo far!

Most of you probably don't know me but I've been big into games for about 20 years, being virtually 30 (give or take 8 weeks lol) I've seen all sorts of things come and go. So here's a little about me!

Real names Antony or Tony for short, I'm from the UK and live in Watford, I've owned or played on a console since I was about 7. I'm a massive Sega nut and believe that the Dreamcast is the pinnacle of console perfection!!

I own roughly 600 games across the following platforms:

Atari Lynx
Atari Jaguar
Sega Master System
Sega Game Gear
Sega Mega Drive
Sega Mega CD
Sega 32x
Sega Saturn
Sega Dreamcast
Sony Playstation
Sony Playstation 2
Nintendo Gamecube
Nintendo Wii
Microsoft Xbox
Microsoft Xbox 360
Windows PC

I used to have an old Atari console, think it was a 2600 but this was when I was like 5 and my dad brought it home from a charity shop one day, moved up to spectrum of my very own, god I miss those wonderful tape games! My dad and brother had Commodores, and then from there we moved up to Sega consoles

Anyway just wanted to pop my head in the door, say hi and hopefully I will see you all around in the coming months :)
