  1. Yeah the NesicaX Live and All.net services are brutal. Although the op’s no longer have to pay for the hardware, so there is less risk on a big title actually being shit. One of EXA Arcadia’s main selling points is that the operator gets to keep all the money.
  2. Just had another run and died after the stage 3 mid-boss, lost my tank by getting a little gung ho and it’s hard when there’s two tanks firing at you on foot and a couple of guys throwing grenades. Managed to get 2 of the 50k point bonuses on the second stage, if you get the doll quick enough it’s 50k, otherwise 5k, then the frog that goes down with the bridge when it gets blown up. My high score so far: 329580
  3. MK9 was great from what I remember. Mortal Kombat 2 is still my favourite. The fatalities on that at the time were unbelievable to 10 year old me. I’m also hugely nostalgic for the first game, when we found out the blood code it was a great time.
  4. Just had my first credit on it in ages, managed to get to the stage 3 boss, although I dropped two silly lives along the way. My best ever run on 1 credit was the stage 4 boss so I’m going to work towards getting there again. I have credit fed in the past and the last stage is an utter twat, it’ll take some learning.
  5. I’m fairly sure that Chain Reaction on the Saturn is the first MD game as well.
  6. I think Dune 2 was superseded by Dune 2000 on PC but happy to be corrected.
  7. Yeah the smaller items appear to be random, but the big items need to be triggered. I’m not as familiar with the first one as two, but in 2 you can do things like kill the helicopters in order for big points and bundle over the NPC’s so they drop stuff etc.
  8. Thanks! It was my first, and now my last cab. Please do start a topic, I’ve still never 1CC’d the Challenge mode despite coming close a few times.
  9. I think I have that on both Mega CD and CD32 but have never played it, guessing it’s regarded as a stinker?
  10. Good choice! I’ll load it in my cab tomorrow and gave it a blast. Not played the first game for ages, spend most of my MVS time on Metal Slug 2 or Magical Drop III.
  11. Mine’s arrived today 😐
  12. Just in case someone else wanted to have a guess 😅
  13. Haha no, not quite then, but it does make any ODE solution pretty much obsolete.
  14. Nice, I assume it needs the MCD attached for the processors etc.?
  15. Are there any ODE options for the Mega CD? Particularly the Mega CD 2. I have one with a dead CD-ROM that I wouldn’t mind getting back to being useable, but I don’t need it to have a working CD drive as I have a Mega CD 1 and Multimega.
  16. Isn’t it Japan only? I imagine it’s not an easy one to get through without reading the text.

    Was surprised to see Shikigami no Shiro 2 for Switch go up for pre-order on Play-Asia and Amazon JP recently.
  18. Not had mine yet either
  19. I’ve set up my PS2 again as my game room is taking shape, just had an afternoon playing some Capcom vs SNK 2, which is sadly only 50hz it seems, and some Marvel vs Capcom 2 (in 60hz). What a time for fighting games that it was in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
  20. Yea the Vs. Street Fighter games on the PS1 are good games in a vacuum, but compared to the Saturn or arcade games they really do suffer. @SeanR PuLiRuLa is shite, very weird, but shite.
  21. I backed Paprium in 2012, finally got my copies of the game in 2020 I think it was. That was a real drama, then the developer re-emerged with a kickstarter and restarted the whole drama. As for future collectibles I always keep an eye on: SMT or Persona mainline games Shoot 'em ups (particularly CAVE games). Sadly with many of these you have to be ready to drop money on a moments notice with the limited print companies. Big name titles from Limited Print companies that stay limited and don't get released in other regions. I agree with 3DS games becoming sought after, I've picked up almost every game on the system I want now I think. Wii U full set collecting seems to becoming a thing as well now, must admit I thought about it, but fortunately stopped after getting the good games (and some crap) and not wanting to buy another 80+ games just for owning them's sake. I'll put my neck out and say evercade carts may become collectible in the future. The licensing deals will likely expire on quite a few of them and they'll go out of print. I think full set collector's will drive up the prices.
  22. 2 MD mini consoles as well. It's not quite as exciting a time as the early-mid 90's when companies were just slinging shit at the wall to what stuck, but it's definitely another great time for hardware fans.
