    (RUMOR) Konami is set to revive Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill

    Konami went mobile and then went to pachinko games which are massive money makers in Japan and other parts of Asia. Not all of this is primarily their fault. A lot of their franchises that kept them afloat (Castlevania, Contra, Gradius) just didn't translate to 3D well. And there was a long...

    Buttons feel like 8bitdos a bit.

    Total War Warhammer 3

    If you want the extra races it's good, if you don't care it's more of the same.

    Yeah the style looks really great. I don't like to crap on things before they are out, just cross your fingers and hope for the best!

    Doom Eternal

    The skin is bright neon green as a homage to the original Doom/Doom2 The only one that looks glowing green is the old school Doomguy, this is intentional. They really did it well and it runs well. But then again Doom 2016/Doom Eternal always ran extremely well on all sorts of hardware for...

    Why don't people call for Microsoft to get out of hardware?

    I meant multi plaform but typo'd it !

    It looks interesting to me. I won't preorder it, but I'll wait and see and if it works out I'll pick it up.

    Why don't people call for Microsoft to get out of hardware?

    People rage on Nintendo because they want the company to commit suicide so they can get their titles on PC. Which won't happen because Nintendo isn't utterly fucking stupid and only someone who's brain dead would actually do what is being demanded. Since most of what MS has comes out on all...

    Did Nintendo leave the traditional console market?

    The deal with handhelds is pretty easy to understand and breaks down a few ways. First in Japan with the long hours away from work and train trips handhelds are a better option. This repeats in other parts of Asia as well. Next it's much easier to sell a unit at a profit. Then it's really...

    Did Nintendo leave the traditional console market?

    The GameCube was still quirky, and not just the controller compared to the competition at the time. The N64 was also quirky, and not just the controller. The NES lacked compared to the master system in some ways and the TG-16 got out the door in that era as well. The SNES was better than...

    Gift ideas for wife Gameboy/Gameboy Advance

    Garbage disposal! That's rough! I took out our aloe plant. FFVII and FFIX seems to me you have a PS1 if you want a great "play with woman" type thing for this that just screams class and since she liked FFTA the Lunars are great games and real collectors items. Won't come cheap but if you...

    Gift ideas for wife Gameboy/Gameboy Advance

    It's a plant not a kitten or puppy so no it's not, and it would fit in with the theme. You don't have to pick the game I picked. You can totally do an OG Metroid release for the gameboy advance and an OG Metroid 2 return of Samus toss in an Amibo even if you don't have a switch and then box...

    I need some Help about to choice an good Arcade Stick

    Happ sucks, fuck them and fuck them hard into the ground. Sanwa is the legit best for fighters on both buttons and sticks. Hori moved from Sanwa parts into their own Hayabusa parts which are "as good" but there is a good bit of debate over it. That all said their is Seimitsu which has...

    What is this MAME setup and where can I buy it?

    That's later but actual Taito Type X-2 Viewlix cabs have been knocked off since the dawn on the PS3 era and sold in kits as Kraylix for one example. http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=157415.0 fab yourself an arcade and plug in a PS, Xbox, Switch, Wii, Mame, has been around for a...

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    The thing is my PC is also a work box to an extent, especially with COVID. From a straight gaming standpoint, even with a 3090 and 10core cpu consoles just work better. I also just passed 40 so my reflexes aren't what they once were. For the PC I'm looking for an epic single player that...

    Gift ideas for wife Gameboy/Gameboy Advance

    For a woman I'd actually look at the OG Final Fantasy Adventure in all seriousness, IIRC it was retitled Sword of Mana for the GBA as it's actually the first of the Mana series. It's an action RPG and the sound track (as with all Mana series sound tracks) still gets hauntingly beautiful at...

    Warhammer40k: Darktide (40k Vermintide)

    I still want to like this, it's just having played the tabletop since Rogue Trader and Fantasy since about the same time I'm hyper leery about anything with Ward involved since it always turned into utter shit. The man single handedly induced the most cringe inducing lore in 40k turning Grim...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    Some of the rarer PS1 games hold value as collectors items. The SNES FFIII dumped at 80 because the cart was beefier than most.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

    The NES one was famous for the BS water stage. Meh? I mean really the sell on any turtles game is going to be the arcade and in time anyways.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

    I really like all the classic Contra, Konami, Castlevania, Street Fighter, MK, KOF, and now Turtles of all things collections that came out. Not all have online and the fact that TIT and TTA have it an instant sell. A few other things that sneaked in are the good Gauntlet new/reboot, there...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    In the 90s this was a tactic though. People wouldn't shower for days before an arcade event, they'd stomp feet, throw elbows, and god fucking forbid you were a white guy the dick jokes and if you dared to bring a girl as a white guy she was 100% going home with someone else and that event...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    Thing is you can adjust any JAMMA arcade machine for what it wants for money. You can also set any of them to free play. The way it worked on the east coast was you played a quarter on the cab to get in next. Stuff varied, but through the late 90s 25 or 50 cents for a play was normal...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I feel Demons was more streamlined in how it played, it was also the breakout game Dark Souls was not. I remember importing the Japanese version and roughing it for a bit, helps if you can actually read Japanese (I can read and write in five languages now thanks to a prior career path in the...

    When do you uninstall games from your drive?

    I keep everything on spinners, and move to SSD if I want to play them. Also a lot of games run just fine of spinners if you have gobs of RAM or they are old anyways. I stage my storage as I use server grade SSDs in u.2 format for the OS, gumstick m.2 for rapid access stuff, SATA SSD for some...

    They are all good. Demons, DS1, Elden, and Seikiro stand out as being the trend setters though.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

    Catching up to this thread but are we really pitching fits about non compressed audio no for "reasons"? That's a GOOD thing. Also all the new vids on this make me certain it will be good.

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    Spoken like a noob. The fighter community has always had racial stereotypes that are very well known and lobbed back and forth for good fun. MK largely white guys who grew up on a console and suck and got bullied out of arcades and it's still the joke/scrub franchise of all of them. The...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    I probably way predate you in the FGC going back to news groups and shipping around VHS tapes to compare West Coast Best Coast to East Coast Beast Coast style way back in the 90s to get styles correct and come up with counters back in the day, players like Justin Wong weren't a thing back then...

    PS 1/2 multiout to HDMI is a thing. And honestly some of the PS1 stuff (See my pictures with Lunar, those are not cheap or easy to get) are gold.

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    Yeah this. The OG PS1 had an audiophile grade DAC and you could write to RAM through the IO port. Nothing like this would be seen again till the Dreamcast and the OG PS3 and then it was all vanished. Frankly if you had to "shell out coins" you sucked and should not have been playing the...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    The IO port could write to RAM which enabled all sorts of fuckery including pirated games. But yeah I keep an OG unit and replaced the laser because it does have uses. This is idiotic. No, not just technical. It wasn't just that the 16bit system ports were graphically and sound wise...

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    They did. The thing is you have to look at the whole thing in context. Nintendo had shat itself with stuff like removing the blood in Mortal Kombat, Sega had shat itself with the Sega CD and 32x. The fabled SNES CD ROM never showed up (that caused Sony to make the playstation as they were...

    Retro video game ad thread.

    We've always been a PC culture. What's PC just changes from time to time. Remember all the complaints about rap, heavy metal, D&D, and other bullshit? We just change what we care about.
