I can see a case made for the TGFX-16. However, I don't see how any others would be viable. The games that are considered great or must-haves are low compared to the popular consoles. Does the Jaguar even have 5 games worthy of a classic console?

same on amazon and it'll support cgd clicking one of bv's links

You are correct!

@CreepinDeth So the SSD fixed all the issues?  That's interesting as generally drives as the Western Digital Black perform well. 

Yeah, it fixed the issue. Looks like the game streams a lot of assets. My hard drive is a tad old but it's not a Black drive. It might be a Green Drive actually. Either way, I saw one other person over at the resetera forums experience this so depending on age/type of drive, you're better off just installing on an SSD.

It really doesn't seem like a year.

Ditto. Happy Anniversary! Thanks for starting up another forum for us to bask in, BV.  ;D


Nah, I haven't picked it up yet. Not sure when to be honest. It's not at at the top of my list of purchases for the year. I'll definitely let you know if I do.

@BLUEVOODU - I have not heard any new Judas Priest. I need to check it out.

I just don't get the motivation behind the characters' actions.

I can't comment on Infinite since I haven't played it yet but in Bioshock 1, the motivation is not subtle at all. You crash land on a place that you're unfamiliar with and you need to escape and go back home. Unfortunately, the place you ended up at has been turned to ruins due to there being no laws and no morality/ethics. The people of Rapture went insane due to this and they become extremely hostile. And because of those ideologies, there is still a war going on and you get caught in the middle of it because you're connected to those who live there.

I don't want to get too deep as I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't played it (even if it is over a decade old.)

I honestly feel the N64 should be the final one. At this point we're getting into the era of 3D and most of the great games have either been ported to current/last gen already or are being remade.

I've only played Bioshock 1 and I loved it. The story was unique for the time and the locations and atmosphere were top notch. Even though the story was unique, it was still silly. I guess it depends on how much you can suspend your disbelief. The atmosphere and gameplay were enough to get me past any silliness.

The only two songs from the Black album that I actually enjoy are The God That Failed and My Friend of Misery. If the album was more like that, it would probably be one of my favorites.

Been on a Judas Priest kick lately and have been listening to Painkiller a lot and also The Hellion/Electric Eye.

My biggest problem is, any of the games on that console mini that I might be interested in,  I have. I can just pull them out and play them on my PS3. And they play without any kind of issue. The only point in owning such a disaster would be just to collect an oddity.

It was always a novelty and created as convenience. All of these classic consoles are. They're not meant to be replacements for current gen hardware. If they were, then they would have the ability to add more games. Not everyone has the means to play PS1 games. We're not really the target audience as we're collectors.


Oh, I haven't opened it and don't plan to any time soon. If the price drops even more then I might pick up a second unit to play with.

I posted this in the Deals section but I'll post it here as well. It has now dropped to $55!

Amazon: PlayStation Classic

This thing is bombing hard and it's now nearly half off of it's original price. If anyone was interested in one, this is a good time to buy I think.

Amazon: PlayStation Classic

Picked up RE2 Remake on Steam. Currently testing it out and tweaking the settings. I'm getting massive drops in framerate during cutscenes and gameplay isn't a locked 60FPS at 1080p even though I exceed the Recommended Settings.

Hopefully it's something that can be fixed on my end since I don't want to wait for a patch to play.

Update: I fixed the issue. I had installed the game on my mechanical hard drive. I reinstalled it on my SSD and the game runs like butter with nearly all settings Maxed out at 1080p.

I haven't played many 2018 specific games other than Spider-Man. So I guess that's my pick.  :))

Ended up getting God of War and Shadow of the Colossus on PS4. Might go through GoW after I finish Spider-Man.

Started going through Spider-Man for PS4. This game is really fun and feels so good when swinging around the city. I hope there's a sequel.

I've thought about picking one or two up but I never got the impulse to pull the trigger. It's a neat idea though and I'm glad someone is doing it.

This is probably where the industry is going. Digital is going to take over and only a handful of physical copies will go around for those hardcore purists.

That's why I love the Metallica box sets. They contain rare, live shows from their vault. They sound so good!

Not sure if I've seen a metal show that had bad sound, which is pretty good. But then again I haven't seen many metal shows. I've seen Tool, Metallica, Opeth, Dream Theater, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, etc. That's about it.

Indeed it is a front end for common emulators.

You still have to do a moderate amount of tuning since I expect people to have a certain preference on how their games run, but it can play your games "out of the box" with no tweaking either. All you would need to do is set up your controller and make sure that your games are in the right format.

I believe the hacking community is already working on porting retroarch to the PS1 Classic.

Ah Interesting... so you can legitimately just throw ISO's at it and it works (for the most part).  That's pretty crazy - although it makes sense. But then I come back to the point of if you're going to hack something to play other emu games... why not save your money and just use your PC.

Still interesting they hacked one of these "classic" machines.

Well, there are a few reasons. For one, they take up less space and are usually more aesthetically pleasing in your living room. Like targetrasp mentioned, you can get some cases that look like an NES or SNES pretty easily. Although, PS1 cases are not looking as good because the shape of console doesn't lend itself as easily to the raspberry pi. Second, it's fairly cheap to get a pi if you don't have a powerful PC.

Personally, I do prefer a PC. I just got Beetle PSX via Retroarch up and running and the games look amazing. They have some sweet shaders as well for those who enjoy the CRT retro look. I might start a new topic on it. Probably going to play through a bunch games over the Christmas break.  :)

I might be able to play something over the break but I mainly play on Steam since I don't have a PSN or XBL subscription.

@CreepinDeth What can you do with the hacked version?

You can load your own games without being limited to the 16GB internal storage. Looks like not all games run well though since the emulator is an older, outdated version.

Are you into Titanfall 2 or Titanfall games @CreepinDeth ?

@BLUEVOODU  - I have the first one on Origin. I booted it up once and then put it away since I had other games to play. So, not really, lol.  :))

Went back to a classic today. Started up some original Sonic the Hedgehog OST. It's one of my favorite soundtracks of all time.

man... I love Shortest Straw... that's still one of my favorite songs. I have not heard the re-release.... I take it was remastered as well?

Shortest Straw is seriously underrated. Love that song myself. It has been remastered already so I'm not sure if this is a new remaster or just the same remaster they've already done. The rerelease comes in box set or stand alone. I already have the Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets box sets. Just need this one and Kill 'Em All.

Aaaaaaannnnddd...'s hacked.

Not surprising since it's happened to the other consoles as well. However, due to Sony's lack of caring, it was much easier to do. You can pop in a USB stick with games and the system can read off of it. This might cause it to sell more units now.

I'm going to pick it up but probably after Christmas. I have way too many games I need to get through at the moment.
