General / Ys Books I & II Question
« on: December 31, 2018, 04:05:59 pm »
So I've been pretty hit or miss with Ys games. I remember playing the original way back on the TurboGrafx-16...and I hated the bump system. I also played Ys III on SNES, and hated how the game felt like it was in fast-forward constantly.

But then I played more recent entries (Ark of Nasptism and Oath in Felghana), and I LOVED THEM. I also ordered Ys Seven as a result.

So now I'm looking at Ys: Books I & II for either PSP or DS. I hear that the PSP version has the dreaded bump-system from the original that I hate. But that the DS version uses a real attack button. Awesome, so I'm gonna get the DS version, I think. But then a buddy tells me that the DS port is just a steaming, buggy, pile of garbage...

What do you guys think? How is the DS version? Is it that bad?

OMG!!! Such a geek-out moment!!! Teaser at the end of the oh-so-awesome CW superhero crossover event last night:

If you aren't a comic fan, you just don't understand. This was the single greatest superhero epic ever told in comic books. To see it get any kind of film treatment, even if it is just a T.V. budget, is amazingly awesome!

My original Xbox backwards compatibility wishlist for XBox One:

-Arx Fatalis
-Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 1 & 2
-Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 1 & 2
-Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes
-Justice League: Heroes
-MechAssault 1 & 2
-Samurai Warriors
-Sonic Mega Collection +
-Spider-Man 1 & 2
-Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse
-Tony Hawk games
-X-Men Legends 1 & 2

I also wanted to put Mega Man Anniversary and X Collections on there, but I know with the current Legacy Collections released, that won't happen.

Off Topic / Eli Roth's History of Horror on AMC
« on: October 15, 2018, 03:49:58 pm »

Alright, who watched the 1st episode?

Pretty damn good! And zombies is a helluva way to kick things off. They covered the subject well, talked to people that were involved with the films, and even threw in some cult classics.

I was sitting there in the part when they were talking about 28 Days Later "introducing" fast zombies, yelling "NIGHTMARE CITY!" at the screen...and then Eli Roth mentions it. The show gets my nod of approval.

Slashers, next week! Can't wait!

General / The Polymega All-In-One Console
« on: September 09, 2018, 04:17:07 pm »
This console promises compatibility with all major consoles PS1 and under. With possibilities of more in the future. HD, or course.

Are you getting one? Before you decide, watch the launch trailer:

Before I saw this trailer, I was not interested. From the sounds of it, you would have had to buy a seperate "module" for each console compatibility.

Well, the trailer shows that the base unit will be able to play all cd-based consoles the system is compatible with, no extra "modules" needed. The modules will be for the cartridge based consoles. And considering I already have a Retron 5 (with the Master System/Game Gear adapter), I don't really need any cartridge modules (other than the TG-16 one, which I will likely get).

Now, you may be wondering what cd-based games the base module will be compatible with. From what I've read and see in the trailer we're getting Turbo-CD, Sega CD, PS1, Neo Geo CD, and Sega Saturn.  Holy crap, I'm in for that!

The price is a hefty $250, but considering how many consoles you're getting on the base unit, and considering there's no other machine that does this for disc-based consoles, I feel it's worth the price.

Classic Video Games / Do You Own a Dreamcast? What Game Drew You In?

This is why I originally bought a Dreamcast.

Do you own a Dreamcast? What game drew you in?

General / What Was the First RPG You Ever Beat?
« on: September 06, 2018, 02:48:19 am »
What was the first RPG you ever beat?

Mine was Dragon Warrior IV on NES.

I owned the original Dragon Warrior and the original Final Fantasy beforehand, but DW IV was the first I actually vested enough interest in the story to beat it.

What bands/artists are on your bucket list of must-see bands?

Which ones have you checked off that list?

So I was in a discussion on Facebook about console generations. And as usual when debates online turn into disagreements, Wikipedia gets whipped out.

Someone points out that Wikipedia is absolutely wrong and shouldn't be used as a source on the subject since they have all post-Pong and pre-NES consoles lumped together in one generation, when that is actually two-distinct generations. Then he listed them as such, and it made perfect sense:

2nd Generation

Channel F Fairchild
RCA Studio II
Atari 2600
Bally Arcade
APF MP1000
Odyssey 2

3rd Generation

Arcadia 2001
Atari 5200

He further pointed out that we're now in a 9th generation of consoles as a result, not the 8th as Wikipedia says.

Yet everyone uses Wikipedia as the be all end all in this discussion.

What are you thoughts about this?
