Only Black Friday deals for games I got was Kirby's Return to Dreamland Deluxe for $30 and Sonic Origins Plus for $20. I was tempted to get Breath of the Wild for $40, but I'm still hoping Nintendo will re-release some Switch games under the Nintendo Selects line at some point like they've done for previous consoles.

Civvie11- Mostly covers old PC first person games games

I Finished A Video Game- Has very long in depth retrospectives covering the history and quality of game franchises like Castlevania and Parasite Eve.

Jeremy Parish Video Works- Uploads weekly covering (usually in chronological order) the releases for a console. Currently he's covering NES games in NES Works, but has also series for other consoles like Game Boy, Virtual Boy, and SNES.

Kim Justice- A good variety of reviews, documentaries, best and worsts, and top 10...or 100 lists covering European retro gaming history.

Lute- Very chill and laid back videos covering games the creator is passionate about.

tangomushi- Covers retro horror games

ThorHighHeels- A little more unique, this channel mostly covers Japan only games along with their aesthetic and very weird obscure games no one really talks about.

Describing why I like something has never been by strong suit. I just thought these channels were good and a nice change from the norm of reviewing bad NES games, look at how bad Sonic 06 is, and a collector finding a hidden gem or rare game for a nickel.

Hardware and Tech / Saturn Laser Going Bad?
« on: September 20, 2023, 08:40:46 pm »
Earlier this year I got two Japanese Sega Saturns that were listed as "for parts" and it ended up that both worked but with different issues. I ended up naming them Saturn A and Saturn B. Saturn A's issue was the CD door didn't open nicely, but otherwise worked fine. Saturn B has video noise issues resulting in a faint horizontal snowflake-like noise (I ended up replacing the PSU on this console which sort of fixed the noise), but otherwise worked too. One of the first games I got for the Saturn was Saturn Bomberman and until recently, my copy had been working fine. About two weeks ago, I tried to start up the game, but the disc would not read. There are not deep scratches, fingerprints, or dust on the disc and no signs of disc rot when I put the disc in front of a bright light. Only thing I noticed was a VERY small piece of the reflective layer was missing by the center of the disc. I ended up purchasing a second copy of Saturn Bombmerman to see if my original copy had somehow just died (not sure if that's the right word). That copy worked ONCE after several tries which made me wonder if the issue was a hardware one rather than a software one. Turns out, yes, it is a hardware issue; just a very particular one. Saturn B read both copies of Saturn Bomberman fine. I would assume that means that the laser on Saturn A is starting to go, but Saturn A is reading my other five Saturn games along with audio CDs no problem. I'll eventually replace the laser on Saturn A, but I find it so strange that just one game is affected. If the laser was starting to go, wouldn't it struggle to read all games and audio CDs, not just this one particular game?

I thought it was fine. Was happy to see F-Zero return in some form, but I haven't played any of these Battle Royale type games Switch online offers, so I probably won't bother with this one.

-Princess Peach Showtime looks pretty fun and reminds me a bit of Kirby
-New WarioWare continues to look fun and hopefully it ends up being that because Get it Together was pretty disappointing to me
-While I never really understood the hype around it the original, the Super Mario RPG remake still looks like it'll be fun
-Another Code: Recollection seems interesting, but I'm sure I'll end up not picking it up
-It was nice to see Thousand Year Door getting a remake and I'm sure I'll be picking that up. Fun game but I remember it being SUPER backtracky.

As usual lately, not a whole lot of stuff compared to other people, but whatever.

I found a 7800 at a goodwill years ago and thought the console had some nice ports of old arcade games. It has my favorite port of Centipede since that version has two player simultaneous. Food Fight, Mario Bros., and Rikki & Vikki were pretty fun too.

At this point I pretty much just stick to my favorite RPG series: Dragon Quest. I've dabbled in other RPGs but rarely finish them even if I thought they were fun. I'm currently giving Mega Man Battle Network a go and am enjoying it enough to the point where I could see myself finishing it and continuing on to Battle Network 2. I'm down to replay RPGs I've beaten like the pre-Switch era Pokemon games or Paper Mario 1-3. Outside of DQ, Pokemon, and Paper Mario, the only other RPGs I've finished have been: Mother 3, Chrono Trigger, and Persona Q2.

I've been a little bit amazed how many times now I've found multiple Gamecube games stuffed into one game case (three times now). The other day I found a Bratz game at a thrift store, decided to open it and ended up not only finding that Bratz game, but Metroid Prime and Scooby-Doo Unmasked. Unfortunately, Prime and even more unfortunately *sarcasm* the Bratz game aren't getting read on my Gamecube (I already have Prime on Gamecube, so it's no biggie). Even if the Gamecube game case says Madden or whatever shovelware, it never hurts to check inside for the chance of extra games even if they're technically loose copies.

I was at work while this presentation went on, but looking at their twitter feed, I'm looking forward to ClockTower, Gex Trilogy, Tomba, Shantae Advance, and Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore. Also I was happy to see that Plumbers Don't Wear Ties finally has a release date...or month in this case.
