Thanks so much to @phillv85 for nominating me this time – this will be my first pick from when we switched to nominating individuals, but I was the person who originally suggested Parodius back in 2019 when deciding on poll candidates, so it's probably my second pick overall. I know we've already had a few rounds with fighting-themed games, but I feel like we haven't had a pure 1v1 fighter for a while. And it's a genre that's relatively easy to pick up and enjoy in the space of a fortnight! That being said, the game still needs a little bit of background for the uninitiated. Pocket Fighter or Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix is a "chibi" 1v1 fighter that is sort of a love letter to many classic Capcom games – with more than a few cameos and references – as well as being a fun blend of fighting game staples like super jumps, guard crush, special moves and super combos. It's a three-button game where you have a punch, kick and "special" – and the properties of these can change when holding a direction, crouching or jumping. Furthermore, there are easy chain combos in this game – as long as you start with a punch attack, you can press more punch/kick buttons to chain together a combination of attacks that can result in a powerful ender. As you fight with your opponent, gems of various colours and sizes will explode out of the characters, and picking these up will fill up meters (of the associated colours) at the bottom of the screen – with bigger gems filling the meters more quickly. You'll want to build these meters to improve your specials: in front of the meters are icons that show a particular special move and the corresponding command. So Ryu has an icon of the fireball move in front of the red meter, and if you collect red gems you can power up your fireballs. Items can also burst from onscreen chests – there are items you can hold on to and toss out with kick+special, and food items you can pick up for recovery. You'll always begin with a throwable item at the start of the match – it'll be shown as the circular icon next to the two small heads below the lifebar. (I think your easy chain combo can result in a new chest appearing as well?) Super combos do exist, and your super meter is below the health bar at the top of the screen. Most of the time you can get a super combo out with two quarter circle motions and an attack, so try stuff out or ask in here! Also, if you find yourself in a tight spot and have a super meter full, you can press all three attack buttons simultaneously for the Mega Crash move – this acts as a burst and knocks the opponent back, but you lose your super meter and gems. It sounds like there are a lot of systems in there, but you can still thrash around with the easy chains and have fun – and then if you're after something more, the depth is there too. Pocket Fighter saw releases on PS1, Saturn, WonderSwan, in the arcade, and in the Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. I believe it's also available in the Capcom Fighting Collection released in 2022 - but someone might need to confirm. I actually have a copy of Alpha Anthology in my shelving unit at the moment, but I don't have a PS2 right now, so instead I'll probably go for the PS1 version via DuckStation. (I may also have the WS version on my RS97, but I need to check.) My goal is to at least make it through arcade mode with a character before the next game is nominated! Previous nominations:

Let's Play: Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
Qazimod posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingOh god... Real talk - I've been kind of apprehensive about this one. The original plan was just to do a thread on the original Persona, and then I warmed to the idea of covering both Persona 2 games, but this one may end up being the least accessible. You see, the two earlier games both had modern reworks on PSP that were localised for Europe. To my knowledge, EP never got that treatment... there was a PSP release for Japan, and an English-language release for North America on the PS1, but that's about it. Soooo there might be some old-fashioned clunkiness to get around! As you might realise given my earlier LP threads, this game has now become one of the few remaining games in the series where I'm completely in the dark. I think I did a "curiosity emulation" thing months ago but didn't make it more than about 15-20 minutes in because the dated presentation hit me like a truck and I was scared to go on. I have set up the necessary stuff to get this playing well (although my "turbo-mode through the battles" tendencies may be limited here), and although there are probably fan-tran versions of the PSP game I'll be sticking with the PS1 version for the time being. The same caveats as before apply - I'll be emulating for screenshot purposes, and discussion is welcome and encouraged, and people can play along, but keep spoiler etiquette in mind. I have no idea how this one's going to go, but I'll try and share the opening moments later on this evening... If you missed my LP threads on the previous games, take a look at them here:
Replacement PS1 shell
ilpostino posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingI've recently come into possession of a Playstation 1, and it needs a bit of a spruce up. Is there a good resource for me to buy a replacement shell for the machine? I can only find a clear smoky case, and I'd prefer either grey or something a bit more interesting.
Let's Play: Persona 2: Innocent Sin
Qazimod posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingI guess this is happening? Firstly, a huge thanks to anyone who dropped into my Persona 1 Let's Play thread around June-August of last year; I wasn't planning on doing a follow-up at first, but as it's the new year I'd like to attempt at least one of the two P2 games. Persona 2: Innocent Sin was first made available in Europe back in 2011, and the second game - Persona 2: Eternal Punishment - exists on PS1 somewhere, maybe only in the States? Anyway, I'd like to take things one step at a time and look at Innocent Sin for now. Whilst I made a spirited effort with P1 back in the day, I don't know if I got more than 15 minutes into Innocent Sin, so a lot of this will be new to me. In preparation for this thread I did go a little bit further, so I at least know about things like the new Rumour system (which I'll explain when I get there), but the majority of this will still be very new. The same caveats as before will apply - I'll be playing on the lower difficulty due to my inexperience, I'll be using the PPSSPP emulator for screenshot purposes, and I invite others to play along but keep spoiler etiquette in mind. Bonus caveats this time around will include me taking my time getting my head around the Rumour system, and choosing to do this thread in a year that promises a whole bunch of fun new 2019 videogame releases. I can't say my time won't be divided between new and old games, but I think it'll work out fine. Oh, and I'll try and introduce the opening of the game later today as well, so stay tuned.

Let's Play: Persona (1996)
Qazimod posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingWe do it! I've had this game in a library of an old PSP account for what must be years, and as a big fan of the later games I was always disappointed at the fact that I bounced off it so hard. For those who don't know, the Persona series is a bunch of popular JRPG games that follow a group of demon-summoning high-schoolers who go dungeon-crawling and uncover some big adventure or mystery. The 1996 game was already obscure enough, but Europe never really got their hands on it before the PSP release in 2010, so gamers over here can hardly be blamed for having P3 or 4 as their introduction to the series. As a fan of 3 and 4 I was keen on taking a look at the origins of the series, and so I bought the PSP release digitally. Unfortunately, the first game is very different to how we view Persona today. With grid-based first-person dungeon exploration, a grid-based battle system where character positioning plays a part in tactics and negotiation that's much more in-depth than it was in 5… one would be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed. I tried pretty hard to get into it on PSP but with so much to consider it can be a slog to say the least. Making this thread should – in theory – motivate me into trying again and not give up partway through. However, I'll outline a few caveats about how I'd like this thread to go. Firstly: I'd like to play on the lower difficulty because I have barely any experience with this game. For what it's worth, I played P3 and 4 on Easy for the first attempts and today I use Normal mode in those games, so forgive this wussing out. If all goes well I might even use this thread for a Normal mode re-run in the distant future! Secondly: I'd encourage anyone else who wants to join in to do so, but keep spoiler etiquette in mind. Perhaps I'll miss bonus optional stuff, but that's all part of the first experience. One other caveat – for screenshot purposes, I'll be using the PPSSPP emulator. Like I said, I have bought the PSP digital release before, but this will be much more convenient for screenshotting. And of course, if this thread sees no action for months, you're welcome to mock me on Twitter or in PMs and motivate me into coming back! If you want more Persona LP threads, take a look here:

Selling PS1 and PS2 games
Parappa posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingCan anyone suggest the best place to sell bulk lots of PS1 and PS2 games?. I don't have a huge amount and certainly don't have any so called rare games but I would like them to go to a good home as I just haven't got the room in my new house that I did when I first started collecting them. Are there any website (excluding ebay). I will also put them up on here but I would really like to sell the lot and get them collected.
