Yeah that is very unfortunate. Sad news indeed.  :-\

If anyone needs Pit, Walmart has them in stock. I can't remember if he was hard to find.

Was to me, but my reflexes probably suck. And I also don't have a lot of patience for repeating long sections to get back to where I was stuck.

Was it just me, or did the site go down about a couple of hours ago?  ???

Matt mentioned the downtime on Twitter, it was just a hiccup.

And... honestly that bit in Guacamelee didn't feel that difficult to me. I dunno.
We all know you have a different pain threshold than most of us based on the types of games you play  :P.


Nice snag there! Some great titles.

My Dreamcast wishlist is getting pretty dang small, I'm about to round mine out. I need Record of Lodoss War, Sword of Berserk: Guts Rage, Sega Smash Pack, and Sega Rally 2.

I'm just getting started so-to-speak, I'm going all hardcore Dreamcast right now. I neglected the console for way, way too long. I'm in the mood for snapping up anything that looks half-way decent, and I've got a local source with some low priced inventory.
You should share the wealth! North East Pennsylvania has nothing for Dreamcast from what I've seen :(.

My GS just called, they finally got my Dedede preorder in AND they got a Ness in which they're holding for me.

So Please.


For the love of all that is holy.

Will someone - anyone - trade me a Captain Falcon for Ness??? :'( :'( :'(
I never though Captain Falcon would be so hard to find, but then I remembered that I almost had my preorder snagged out from underneath me.

I popped in Blast Corps on the N64 the other day. Still just as fun to play. Probably going to fill in the little free time I have with that.

For me nothing beats a good CRT but I thought of getting a Framemeister especially for the Wii console since it's not really suitable for my SD 4:3 Trinitron CRT, being more the EDTV 480p generation. Then I could play the Wii games on 16:9 on my HDTV without the muddy upscaling.

Thing is here in Europe I can get a 30' 16:9 EDTV Trinitron with RGB SCART & component inputs for like $5, where the Framemeister costs 60 times more and wouldn't offer as good results. So the choice is easy, plus I have enough room for 2 CRTs, It's so damn cheap I don't mind having a 100+ pounds extra TV just for one console.
Yeah Europe usually got screwed out of all things retro gaming, but when it comes to TVs with the best inputs, you guys won leaps and bounds above the US  ;D

disgaeniac hasn't been around in a while. Has anyone heard from him?

no posts since about a month ago, but it looks like he's still signing on to the site. maybe he's just taking a break from the forums?
I talked to him over PM just yesterday. Only one though. He mentioned he's busy cleaning the pool, grill, etc now that it's summer time.

If you have a TV with Euro SCART Connectors (mostly only Europe), or one of those high end monitors with BNC connectors, that's the best way to go. Besides that, XRGB Framemeister upscaler to an HDTV is the best, most realistic method. It's what all the youtubers use in their sweet videos if they're not using emulators.

Getting RGB out of your old consoles is night and day difference. SNES1 and Genesis model 1 output RGB without modding. N64 and SNES Mini I just modded myself and they were super easy. This was only my 3rd time soldering and it worked perfectly. I think Saturn doesn't need any mods. I really want to tackle the NES next. That's a way bigger undertaking so far though and more expensive.

This video really explains the basics well, and was what got my girlfriend on board to spend all my frequent flyer miles on Amazon gift cards to get a Framemeister lol.

Last update they should start Shipping soon, at least those who kickstarted it
Well that's good to see. Being that I never received an email to double check my address, I'll assume it's only backers for now. Still, that's promising.

So there's been no word on the Dreamcast version since that video... Also, it looks like Tulio left the company.

I'm curious what the hold up is now with the strategy guide and the Dreamcast game.

Grats on the Dreamcast and the fight stick! I've been wanting to pick up a couple fight sticks myself, but can't get myself to drop the cash people are asking for them  :-\

For those interested in Star Ocean V, here is a great interview that really hyped me up:
I just read this interview. Sounds really interesting! Super happy they're going to utilize every character and not be stuck with only 3 actually usable characters.

I haven't played Last Hope yet so it's a little disheartening to hear the producer talk about it not being very good. But still, everyone seemed to hate til the end of time and I enjoyed that one quite a bit. Gotta find time to play 4.

The million dollar question is this: does the shirt fit?
Well it's XL, which is my usual fit so I'm thinking so! How'd they know  :o.

That sucks about the CE
Yeah I was really pissed when it got cancelled but I was able to snag a PS4 version not too long ago. I'd like to play it on the PC, but at least now I have all the cool swag  ;D
