    Ouch, SDOJ has gone up loads in price recently.

    Ketsui also got a PS3 release which should be region free.

    Nice, an original Ketsui board, not cheap those things!
  4. Haha, and here’s me thinking I’m glad I’ve never hung my Deathsmiles posters. SDOJ would have been terrible.
  5. I had this very recently. A guy was round measuring the windows for some blinds. I’ve got a couple of posters up in one of the downstairs rooms where my arcade cabinets are. He was having a nosey at them, pointed to one and asked which game one of them is. Embarrassed I paused for a moment and said “DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou”. He looked at me blank for a moment, then asked what it meant. Again, I stood for a moment and explained DoDonPachi is supposed to be onamatopeia for a gun shot. Dai Ou Jou translates as blissful death. Another blank look, and all he said was “right”. I don’t think I’ve ever had such an awkward conversation about a game. It shouldn’t have even been weird, but I was pretty sure he’d probably never played Street Fighter Zero 2, but could read the title on that one. I’m glad he never asked about gameplay on DDP, I can’t imagine trying to explain it without wanting the world to swallow me up.
  6. If that’s the whole of their “non-response”, then it’s truly dire. As stated above, those workshops sound like a way of blaming women for this.
  7. Yeah if you want a physical copy of Soul Hackers it’ll make your wallet hurt.
  8. There's 688 Attack Sub on the Mega Drive. It's not a bad title considering what it is and the platform it's on.
  9. I’ve just got the 8th gym badge on Pokemon Crystal. Time to do some serious level grinding.
  10. They had one of those Fighting Mania's in the Namco Station in the Trafford Centre years ago. The Atomiswave game is a beautiful 1v1 fighter by Arc System Works. Highly recommend it if you can find a way to play it. The Atomiswave cart is pretty expensive now.
  11. Some lovely games on the Atomiswave. Hokuto no Ken has a pretty much permanent spot in one of my arcade cabs.
  12. Depends what else you want to use on it. Very few boards use 5 buttons natively from the JAMMA connector, most use a kick harness. It’s only if you wanted to use something like a Pandora’s box. Even then you can make a harness for it.
  13. How long is the game? I’ve never played it to the end. This thread is making me want to dig it out and give it a go.
  14. From memory I think you do have to make path decisions like the Capcom CPS2 D&D games which would be helpful to read.
  15. Definitely worth £3.39, probably not worth the ~£100 it’d cost on the Saturn.
  16. The alternative methods of redemption do however block the console manufacturers from truly taking the piss on their platforms though.
  17. Regardless of their future intentions, the point was, right now I can buy a PS4 game from either PSN or Amazon, I have a choice. Even tiny devs have more choice than ever to put their products on disc via all these small print run companies.
  18. Not exactly the same for Sony or Nintendo though, you can go to a store and buy games there. Developers have the option of a physical product for those platforms, that doesn’t exist with Apple.
  19. Haha yeah I know. As to your other post, yeah, they basically seem non-viable to sellers over here. There's a guy on the UKVAC forum who's basically started bringing them over himself to sell in fairly small quantities.
  20. It won't remove PS Store or Nintendo Store etc. It'll just mean there can be competition on there. Whether that competition surfaces is another thing. The iOS market must be bigger than all three main console store fronts combined.
  21. Well yeah.... also doesn't mean it's not true.
  22. They almost certainly don't care, but they'll use it against Apple to get their way.
  23. We'll have to agree to disagree then. I think it is a monopoly, and that word is used heavily throughout the court documents we've seen, so Epic and their lawyers seem to think it is as well.
