Re: Retro gaming

I picked up a 27" Sony Trinitron yesterday for $50 https://www.cnet.com/products/sony-kv-27fs120/. I had been playing Gamecube and Wii games on my 60" 4k TV with component cables and switching between widescreen and 4:3 formats. It was fine and I've played through multiple titles this way...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

got acquainted with Rolling Gunner with a quick playthrough in Novice mode and I was happy with my purchase pretty much instantly. the actual 'rolling gun' mechanic is cool and sure to be a fun challenge to master, the visuals are nice and don't suffer from the simplistic, digital-toy look (for lac...

All sat eagerly anticipating yours to play :lol: Haha, fair enough! @shadowless_kick I'm still waiting on my copy of Cotton Reboot! (Switch) from Strictly Limited.

Game looks really fun and interesting. You have to give it to Housemarque. A priority buy for when I get a PS5!

I could teach anyone on this forum. If I had a few hours with them on a 1-1 basis, how to beat Golden Axe without dying. Trust me. We can all get these clears. Thanks for checking this out my friends. I'm very happy with it. No expense spared with the coloured lighting when I changed characters hah...

There's 2 of us now! We had some other CRT advocates like Suits, but I don't think he posts here anymore, so we have to make do with Twitter and WhatsApp. :P Good luck with the PVM search! They're increasingly hard to find. I'm happy with my massive Bang & Olufsen MX7000 and the smaller Trinitro...

Re: Shmups

Oh, didn't catch that yet!

@Magical Isopod, I think that's pretty much it. For that 67ish, you'll get the most content rich 2D shooter I can think of and then you can expand on that further, if you like.

Re: Shmups

The new release is not Chronicle Saviors, but the final version of DariusBurst the arcade game + a HD re-release of G Darius. That means that the DariusBurst on this compilation doesn't have the huuuuuuuuge amount of extra 16:9 content that comes with CS, but it does come with all the timed challeng...

Hi Belmont03, that's great! Coincidentally, I just got a JP copy of Ikaruga for Dreamcast in. I never greatly clicked with it, but I can't help but admire that game's design ethos and it looks excellent on my B&O CRT, so maybe that motivates me to put more time into it... also, playing Gradius V...

Re: Shmups

Barely played it and had no idea the ROMs were that different. Will investigate! Also, damn shame that most of our 2D shooter enthusiasts don't check in very often again, because there are a lot of significant releases coming out these days! Just the upcoming month, we have... - Cotton Reboot - Dari...
