  7. 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

  9. For years, I've lived a double life. In the day, I do my job: I ride the bus, roll up my sleeves with the hoi polloi. But at night, I live a life of exhilaration, of missed heartbeats and adrenalin. And, if the truth be known, a life of dubious virtue. I won't deny it - I've been engaged in violence, even indulged in it. I've maimed and killed adversaries - and not merely in self-defence. I've exhibited disregard for life, limb and property, and savoured every moment. You may not think it, to look at me, but I have commanded armies and conquered worlds. And though in achieving these things I've set morality aside, I have no regrets. For though I’ve led a double life, at least I can say: I've lived.

  11. Was just chatting about my route through gaming over the years with @angel, and all the machines we'd owned. Thought it might be fun to see what other people's paths were. I suppose this technically belongs in the Retro folder, but a) I'm a maverick renegade, and b) No fucker will read it there. Well, maybe @Strider. Anyway, here's mine: I haven't included anything that I bought as a retro console after the fact. As you can see, I pretty much missed out on the cool computers (Stupid parents wanting me to have an 'educational' computer), but I did go down the Mean Machines/Console route, and experienced the early (glory?) days of PC gaming (Roughly spanning Police Quest II era Sierra through to Half Life 2). What does your tree look like?
  12. Hi all, I have a NES, SNES and Megadrive which I'm currently connecting to an LCD tv with RF cables. It's a ball-ache as it means faffing behind the screen every-time and the image judders a little up and down which is pretty irritating. I bought a Scart cable for the SNES the other day which connected up fine but still the image judders. My understanding was that a Scart connection would have sorted that - am I wrong or have I perhaps missed something? It's not the end of the world (very much a First World Problem) but I'd like to get to the bottom of it. I have a 21in Sony CRT in the other room which I could move this all to but prefer being in the main room if I can. thanks Paul

  19. Hi all. My trusty N64 has gone quiet and I'm not sure why. The general consensus that these things are like tanks and along the cockroaches will survive a nuke. I get a perfectly good picture but no sound and I wondered if you guys had ever come across this before or had any tips on how to get it working again? (I once replaced the SID chip on a C64 but I doubt it'll be that easy to fix.) Assuming I can't easily get it working then does anyone have a spare N64 they want to quickly sell? Preferably a modded import (I like 60Hz with RGB). Cheers...

  25. Been inspired to get out of the house and do some retro digging, not in the more obvious used gameshops of akihabara, but out in the sticks in the used goods warehouses around the the outskirts of the capital. After doing some reasearch into used prices of PC engines and twin famicoms, I accidentaly came a cross a number of japanese blogs that catalogue all the huge game warehouses countrywide. So I`m taking it upon myself to try and tackle each one in my area , pick up some goodies along the way and hopefully drop some info on each one. Here`s an example of what I can expect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxpOcbk4bN8 Each spot on my google map will get a link to my post in this thread.Yellow points are visited locations. The map covers the whole country, so contributors are welcome! THE MAP : I accept no responsibility for closed or moved stores! http://goo.gl/maps/mCRsP Mission one : Togane Kanteidan Mission two : Inner City 3 hit combo! Mission three : Y! auctions and a raging hard off mission four - Akihaba-blah! mission five - pre gig dig! mission six - All good in the hood
