Hi everyone - I'm hoping to garner some opinions on a retro gaming idea, if you would be able to help... I've got a business opportunity focused on gaming (arcade & consoles only at the moment) and one idea I've had to make it a bit more interesting to current and potential gamers is to provide a service a bit like Graze, Pact Coffee, Abel & Cole, etc. The idea is that you can go online, select which consoles you own and subscribe to a service that posts you a different game every month. You can play it and then send it back or you can keep it for an extra fee. So, if you said you had an N64, you might get Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie or Super Smash Brothers for your first 3 months. You could send a couple back and keep one, if you felt so inclined. We would never send out the same game twice and you could cancel with 30 days notice. My questions I'd like to get some opinions on are; - Would you like to get one or more games sent to you every month? - If so, would a cost of £7.99 per month, including return postage, put you off? - Have you heard of anyone else providing this service? If so, what's good and what's bad about what they do? - What would really put you off from signing up? - What would make you sign to the membership package immediately? - If there were other benefits to the subscription, such as small loyalty rewards or exclusive social events, would that be of interest? Thanks for taking the time to respond - I genuinely appreciate all the feedback, good or bad, and will respond to everyone! Mark
Wasn't sure where to ask with no EverDrive thread so I figured I'd make one. EverDrives are flash carts made for retro consoles, as a brief summary. The upside to using these is there is no emulation when using the original hardware for these old games. Got a Master (System) Everdrive last year and only just started organizing the roms, but in two instances now certain roms crash: Super Tetris (as soon as you press anything, otherwise it runs) Street Fighter 2 (I got up to Balrog before it decided to crap out on me, God this looks amazing considering the hardware it's on, mind.) I've got a 50/60hz and language mod on the system but far as I can tell, those are not affecting Tetris. Is it just the case that the Everdrive may not be compatible with completely everything? I've also been pondering how to organize the list when you switch it on because the roms show up twice (when I know they shouldn't)
Something I noticed while looking at some random websites this afternoon. if you read any of the original reviews of Sonic the Hedgehog, for example: http://www.meanmachinesmag.co.uk/review/152/sonic-the-hedgehog.php http://amr.abime.net/review_37389 http://www.worldofspectrum.org/showmag.cgi?mag=C+VG/Issue117/Pages/CVG11700019.jpg Robotnik is referred to as Eggman throughout. Of course, by the time the game was released, his name had changed. Anyone able to offer any insights into why?
