Sorry for the boring question but does anyone know of a decent converter that will let me use a PS3/4 stick on a 360? I know Brook are known for making loads of them but this specific configuration doesn't seem to be catered to. Mayflash do a cheap 'universal' one but I'm reading a lot of mixed things about them - are they reliable, lag-free etc? 

 

Thanks! 

 

Edit: sorry, just realised this is OT even here!

In talks for this board.

It's mutant night upl 1987.

 

I understand its pretty hard to get hold of, so from the off, I'm settling for a bootleg board.

 

I really would love this game. I have UPL titles on Ps4 (hamster ports) this is on the Japanese store too.(I don't know about other consoles, not looked)

 

Gameplay looks so quirky. I've never played it before...

Tekken 3 is magnificent!

 

Got it today, need a Namco kick harness.

I've always found the 100+ moves on 3d fighters too overwhelming...

 

..Which is good as I only have 2 punch buttons.

I've still learnt around 15 moves through trial and error.

 

Get the feeling there is something special wrapped up in the mechanics.

 

Well...after reading, it would suggest so...

 

I never played any Tekken game deeply back in the day.

 

I'm loving this :)

Has anyone got/played any of these 'Quarter Arcade' machines..? Are they still reasonably playable shrunk down so much?

 

Only the next one is.. :wub: :wub: :wub:

 

£130 is a bit steep though! The almost full size Arcade 1Up machines are only double that..

I’ve got PacMan, Galaxian & Galaga.

 

They are very well detailed and look lovely on a shelf. They play fine but they are all simple games. I’m not sure if Track N Field & Bubble Bobble will play so well with such small controls.

That was my concern.. Definitely must playtest one before deciding.. Cheers!

I went over to Scarborough today to check out the arcades. First time I have been back in about 10 years, so obviously didn't expect much. Amongst all the 2p machines and fruit machines I came across one pretty cool game. It came out in 2015, so I am sure many of you have seen it before, Namco Dark Escape 4D. I thought it was pretty good effort considering the arcades were pretty much dead even back then. I found some info on it on a website.

Anyway, in-between some personal nostalgia, amazing weather, fish and chips, this was a great end to the day.

I went to the Lost Arcade in Bristol on Friday, very decent selection of cabinets and consoles all set to free play.

Had a great day in NQ64 on Saturday, it's based in the Custard Factory in Digbeth - Birmingham.
Nice little walk through video here

Plenty of arcade machines:

Guitar Hero 2p
NBA Jam 4p (oddly the surprise hit of the day!)
X-Men 4p
Simpsons 4p
TNMT 4p
Star Wars arcade
Dance Dance
Double Dragon
Track and Field
SF2
Tekken
ACDC Star Wars and cant remember the other pinball 
a Gamecube with 4 pads (Mario Kart)
SNES with an everdrive cartridge so pretty much every game on that (we played this lots, especially Sensi soccer of all things!)
Mega Drive with tons of stuff
N64 with 4p goldeneye on
4 x Outrun 2 sit down cabs

Tons of stuff, that is by no means an exhaustive list, its really good
Music was awesome, bar really good (great cocktails), but most of all really packed and friendly, lots of winner stays on action and friendly banter with strangers all totally into it too.
Price was £6 for 15 credits and the consoles were all free.

Much better than Kong's which has been up in town for a couple of years, they really need more machines but it's still also a great place very airy and a great bar selection / burgers so still worth a visit there too.
