FM Towns Marty... there's a retro console dozens will flock to buy!

If you're willing to shell out a bit more money, I've heard good things about the RetroTINK. It's $99 but works with any console that has Composite/S-Video/Component outputs. I'm thinking of picking this up.


DF Retro just did a video on an N64 adapter that has just released and the RetroTINK was mentioned.

Haven't had a chance to read the article yet but AMD is coming out so strong with Ryzen 3 that this might be too late. If I build a PC with an SoC it's going to be an AMD Ryzen 3 chip.

GameStop also missed the boat on digital and are now having to play catch-up (which they won't be able to).

This is what it is right here. They were never going to catch up to digital in the first place and there are finally enough digital consumers to make a difference. Why pay the same price at GS when you can just go to the source and pay the same amount and not have to go outside? You can't trade in digital games either, so each digital purchase is one more nail in their coffin. They do sell digital goods, but they probably pay a cut to the first parties and developers on top of their razer-thin margins on new items.

Digital is a no-win situation for GS.

I haven't had a chance as well. I wanted to use it for emulation but the deeper I go the more I realize Windows has the better software support.

I will return eventually. I like to show love to it when I can. Open Source needs more love.

General Discussion / Re: Favorite 80's Toy / Cartoon

I forgotten about Micro Machines. I don't know why but I enjoy miniature version of things. I remember there were TMNT mini figures and playsets that were self contained in bigger TMNT figures. It was like Mighty Max/Polly Pocket. But those were in the '90's.

Even though I was born in the early '80's, I think the '90's is where I really started to enjoy toys and cartoons more. I honestly don't remember what I liked back then other than Voltron.

@AngelBob -- Isn't this the game that where it turns GPS locations into bases and what not.  You then have to take them over from other people?

It is. They're the ones who also co-developed Pokemon Go.

Not sure if anyone has pre-ordered yet but it's up on Amazon. Priced at $99 and releases March 20th. You don't get charged until it ships.

General Discussion / Spider-Man: Far From Home

I may be a bit biased since Spidey is my favorite comic book superhero, but man, this film was great. The first half may seem a bit slow but the second half is pretty much perfection in my eyes. They finally got Spider-Man right in my opinion.

I suggest everyone see it.  ;D

I plan on picking it up sometime this year, lol. Saving my money for the new mini consoles being released this year first.

I've been using Macs off and on since the early '90's. My first personal computer was one of the first PowerPC Macs back in '93/'94?

I've always liked OS9 and OSX, just not enough to spend the money on it for every time I needed to upgrade. I still remember when people would wonder why I had a Mac but now more than 2 decades later and the world can't stop gushing over Apple. It's been pretty weird for me.

For desktops, I prefer to build my own PC. You can control every aspect and it comes out cheaper. However, on the laptop side I'm thinking of getting another Macbook Pro. The advantage of MacOS is that it gets you from point A to point B without a lot of fuss. Which is what I need in a laptop. I need my portable to be ready to go. I want low boot up times and little OS overhead. They also tend to have some of the best battery lives in comparison to Windows machines.

So I think you did good Retro. I feel MacOS works best when you don't try to think about what is going on under the hood or what you can customize or change. Just treat it as a simple computer and you'll be fine.

So far from what I've seen, the PC-E in Japan does have Rondo of Blood but no mention if it's going to be on the TG-16. Still researching.

Dracula X Rondo of Blood?

Don't know yet since the full lineup hasn't been revealed yet. However, I have heard that different regions are getting different lineups so hopefully it comes to the NA version.

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Re: Sega Genesis mini: it is happening!
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:19:43 PM »
Bloodlines was a Genesis exclusive.

No... I understand that @retro junkie ... I meant,  does that mean it wasn't released on any other platform...  ie steam or remastered?  I thought it was released on something else...  but guess I'm wrong on that. 

Sadly, no. It was only released on the Genesis, and to my knowledge, this will be the first time since, that it will be available again.

It became available in the Castlevania Collection a couple of weeks ago:

Konami Reveals Castlevania Anniversary Collection

Also, the full lineup of games has been released. I put in my pre-order already. I also really hope that the SegaCD/32X accessory add-on gets released over here in the states and doesn't stay a Japan exclusive. It looks freaking cool!

Spoiler: ShowHide
1. Captain Marvel's timing. Seems like it's always perfect. I like her as a character but still.
2. Wtf was with Gwyneth Paltrow Iron Woman? Seemed almost completely random (almost because she has briefly worn a suit but it was for protection).

Spoiler: ShowHide
Didn't seem random at all. Iron Man III set this up way back in 2013 and then Tony brought it up again when his daughter was wearing her helmet. She's shown that she's willing to do anything for Tony, even suiting up and saving him. It would have been random if she didn't put on the suit to fight.

It looks pretty bad but now that they've confirmed they'll be redesigning Sonic, I'm interested in seeing what they come up with.

General Discussion / Re: Gaming Headsets... why must you suck?
« on: April 29, 2019, 03:40:14 PM »
Gaming headsets tend to suck because it's about the appearance and not necessarily the sound. Reason they're popular is because many aren't that educated about sound or aren't interested in learning what is good sound. So to most people almost anything will sound better than earbuds that are packed in with phones or media players.

To your question, if you're going with non-gaming headsets then Sennheiser headphones are pretty much the bar. There are better sets out there but they're going to cost you more.

It was a great movie... awesome... but there are some holes in some of their theories and what they do.  I won't go into it though... yet lol.

@CreepinDeth it's definitely satisfying... though some of the outcomes are tough to accept.  I tell you... I still blame Starlord... then Thor. LOL. 

The holes don't bother me. There is no way you're not going to have holes. Sci-Fi has tried for many years and even the movie itself explains how those aren't that accurate either.

And I have heard that it felt rushed to the theater.

It's hard to answer the other questions without giving you more context but I'll answer this one and this comment, that I've also seen myself on other forums, makes no sense.

This movie has been in in the works in conjunction with Infinity War. It's been in production for many years and clocks in at 3 hours. This movie is dripping with nuance and details. If you're a casual MCU fan, then some of the stuff might go over your head but what Endgame does is reward those who have been paying attention and care about these characters. If you don't, then it might look like another super hero movie to you, just bigger and grander. Which is fine as well.

My theory is that some people were expecting a non-stop battle scene for 3 hours and in reality, that wouldn't work. You would get over it very quickly. Not sure what others could've been expecting but so far I haven't seen a reasonable thought on it.

Saw it yesterday and if I had to describe it in one word it would be "Satisfying." From beginning to end everything came together beautifully and there was no wasted time. Every scene was impactful in one way or another.

I'm going to the first showing on Saturday. Currently, finishing up all of the Marvel movies. I'm on Spider-Man: Homecoming.

For example, for a monthly price... you could play all Nintendo games ever made.

They can do that now but Nintendo won't, so I don't see this happening.

I haven't kept up with Stadia, to be honest. The reason I don't really pay attention to it is because our internet infrastructure is a joke (in the US at least.) I'm already sold for the most part on streaming gaming services, but unless our internet gets better and more reliable they're not going to succeed.

Also, it's Google, and they are known to abandon projects all the time. They have trouble focusing on their products and sometimes even undermine them with other products. Google will have to prove to me that they're in this for the long haul before I start relying on their streaming service for all of my gaming.

I try to use both. I, too, get lazy and want to just use the GUI but I force myself to use the Terminal since I never really learned it as well as I should have at this point. I got to keep fresh in case the GUI ever crashes on me.

I honestly can't wait. I'm so hyped! I've managed to successfully stay away from trailers. And now with the Fox merger being complete I'm more hyped for the what comes after.
