Retro News & Chat / Custom Rage 2 Dreamcast
« on: May 01, 2019, 18:56:31 PM »
Well this has to be one of the strangest marketing ideas ever, but very cool! Bethesda is giving away a custom Dreamcast with a PC built into it that you can play their new game Rage 2 with. Wasn't really sure where to post this as it's a retro console with a modern PC in it but I figured it would get more attention in the retro section.



To enter the competition just follow the directions in this tweet. https://twitter.com/RAGEgame/status/1123615561462632449
Sorry to the people from the UK and Europe, it's only open to residents of the US and Canada.

They also posted this picture to show that it's legit.

Retro News & Chat / Capcom Home Arcade
« on: April 16, 2019, 16:36:47 PM »
Capcom was teasing something yesterday, and today they revealed this!



Full list of games and other info here. http://www.capcomhomearcade.com/home

Before anyone gets too excited though, the price is listed at $287.49, £203.31! If this was half the price and had double the amount of games I'd be tempted, but this is just way too much. Also not sure if I like the design either, pretty gimmicky looking IMO.

Retro News & Chat / Analogue Mega SG
« on: October 17, 2018, 20:19:48 PM »


Time for the Genesis/MD to get a brand new FPGA console!

https://www.analogue.co/

Looks great and it has the connector built in to connect an original Sega CD system to it. Also comes with a Master System adapter and you can buy other adapters to play pretty much every other Sega cartridge including Game Gear games. Only thing missing seems to be 32X support.

« on: September 19, 2018, 14:58:31 PM »
Looks like the rumors are true!

Retro News & Chat / Arcade1Up Home Arcade
« on: July 27, 2018, 19:58:58 PM »



Now this is what I'm talking about, no more of those mini arcade machines! These are 3/4 scale arcade cabinets but you can also buy a riser to sit it on and make it full size. 17" screen too.

You can see the full list here. https://www.arcade1up.com/

Only thing stopping me from getting one is they are damn expensive! As you can see in the picture they were $399 but I see they are now doing pre-orders for $299. Not sure if that's a limited time deal or if they just lowered the price. Here in Canada though Walmart is selling them for $499.99!!!

If they had 50 or 100 games in each one I'd be much more tempted but at that price and with such few games on each it's just too much.

Retro News & Chat / Top Selling Games in the US
« on: July 19, 2018, 23:52:39 PM »
I saw this on Twitter and had to share.

Here's the link to the thread https://twitter.com/MatPiscatella/status/1019993127921188864

As you can see he is a video game analyst and he decided to post the top 5 best selling games of all time for various consoles in the US.

The N64 list is what you would expect but the PS1, Saturn, and Dreamcast charts were surprising to me.

The PS1 list is made up of only two different franchises and three of the five Dreamcast games were sports titles. Generally sports fans did gravitate towards Sega hardware but I didn't think it would be that much. Would have never guessed the top selling Saturn game was NFL 97 either!

Very interesting. :)

Nintendo Chat / Brawler64 Gamepad
« on: May 22, 2018, 20:10:31 PM »


I backed the Kickstarter for this controller last year and I've had it for a little while now, but I only really gave it a good workout yesterday. After a couple hours with it I'm very impressed!

Super comfortable to hold and the analogue stick feels great. This is so much better than the stock N64 controller!

The only slight complaint is the analogue stick and left shoulder button are too close together internally and will hit each other if the stick is in the upper left position and you press the shoulder button. To be fair to the developers though, there is not a single game that would use both by default just because of how the original controller was designed. They probably should have caught it during testing but they didn't so they are working on a replacement piece that can be swapped out to fix the problem. All backers who want it are supposed to get the this new part shipped to them for free when it's finished.

All future controllers ordered from them will be the updated version that has been fixed, and you can order it here. http://retrofighters.com/#home

Retro News & Chat / Coleco Evolved Mini Arcade
« on: May 08, 2018, 17:13:47 PM »
Looks like everyone is getting into the mini arcade cab business, including Coleco!



They just launched a Kickstarter for it, which you can fine here. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/903316019/coleco-evolved-mini-arcades

The price is good and I like the look, but I'm not sure how much interest those two initial games are going to get. Also I'd rather have multiple games in each. Cool to see these making a return though.

Anybody backing this?

Retro News & Chat / Data East Mini Player
« on: May 03, 2018, 14:52:00 PM »
Data East have been putting their classic arcade games in all kinds of devices lately, and the latest is a mini arcade cab!



https://www.myarcadegaming.com/products/data-east-mini-player

It looks very cool and with 30 games included there's lots to play, but it's $99.99 and only 10" tall with a 4.25" screen. If it were a little bit bigger or a bit cheaper I would be all over this. Great idea though!

Marketplace / Yakuza Reprints
« on: April 19, 2018, 22:25:51 PM »
Not sure if there's any fans of this series around here, but if you are this might be of interest.

Video Games Plus is an online retailer here in Canada that have recently started paying to get reprints made of old video games, including the first four Yakuza games. 1 and 2 for the PS2 and 3 and 4 for the PS3 are all available to buy brand new for pretty good prices. I believe they have free international shipping too.

I think it's really cool that they are doing this. Hopefully there's more of these reprints in the works.

Edit: I should add that these are the NTSC versions. The PS3 games might be region free but the PS2 games would definitely have to be played on a modded system if you're in another region.

Retro News & Chat / Billy Mitchell Banned from Twin Galaxies
« on: April 12, 2018, 17:23:19 PM »
Looks like Twin Galaxies have finally seen enough evidence that Mitchell was cheating and they have wiped out all of his high score records and banned him from ever competing again!

https://www.polygon.com/2018/4/12/17228994/billy-mitchell-king-of-kong-high-scores-vacated-banished

I've never liked the guy ever since I watched the movie The King of Kong so this is great news to me.

Retro News & Chat / Super Retro-Cade
« on: December 07, 2017, 19:56:13 PM »
Retro Bit have been coming out with some very interesting products lately, and their latest looks really cool!



This is another plug and play console with over 90 games from the four companies in the picture above already pre-installed. Full game list and other info here.

It's supposed to be available on the 15th and you can pre-order it on Amazon right now, but I'm going to wait for reviews first. They released a similar product last year that got terrible reviews over the emulation, controllers, and serious lag so it's probably best to wait and see if this one is improved or not.

Interesting new project from RetroBit.









They're up for pre-order on Amazon and priced between $29.99 and $34.99 USD which is pretty reasonable.

More info and links on their site, http://retro-bit.com/multi-cartridges

Guess it depends what the emulation is like but I'm tempted to buy a couple of them.

Atari Chat / Atari Jaguar Kitty Box
« on: September 13, 2017, 14:58:00 PM »
Now this is interesting! http://0711spiele.de/zubehoer/atari-jaguar-kitty-box-hdmi-adapter/



A little expensive, and a unit that could be used with multiple systems would be a much better deal, but still pretty cool. I don't really know much about the site and I've never ordered from them before but they have a few other Jaguar products that they sell as well.
