Quote from: The King of Kings on February 01, 2016, 07:12:57 PMYeah, I can only play a bit at a time too. Once I start stringing together 4-5 curse words I have to stop.

I still have my acekard flashcart for the dsi. it's got tons of games and emu's on it even though I have actually paid nintendo for a lot of those games on the virtual console.anyways... yeah im a bit of a nintendo fanboy I guess. actually the way i figure it I probly still owe them money so... gotta even things out. I'm still grabbing a new flashcart tho! working mame on a handheld is a dream cometrue

Quote from: area51drone on February 09, 2016, 03:07:18 AMCool, I don't really remember seeing that one. You should check out the movie King of Arcades, it was pretty good too. I almost got the GORF working tonight.. the screen is scrolling horizontally, and doesn't play quite right but I got some sounds and you can sort of see the gameplay which was exciting. Dusting off a game from 1981 that probably hasn't seen any action since the mid to late 80's is like a time capsule. It even had an old analog multimeter sitting in the bottom of it. I know virtually nothing about fixing vids, but I'll get it working. I really bought it to turn it into a mame machine.. I think it's got cool art and the joystick is the same as Tron. But I'll keep all the parts so I can put it back into a gorf at any time.

Quote from: Agent : Orange on February 08, 2016, 11:25:42 AMSo far I have played New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario 3D Land, which came with the system. Both of them are 10/10 and gave the Nintendo quality I expected. I understand that A Link Between Worlds is also a must-play for this system, so I think that's going to be the one I try next. I haven't had a handheld around in many years, it's nice to be able to take a break from work, pop it open for a level or two and then go back. Takes no time to wake up from sleep when the screen is opened, so it's like having a game always on the go. Also, I recently found this gem on steam and have had fun with it: https://youtu.be/rI_r-g4VnsYHaven't finished it yet but I'm hoping to have a bit more time with it soon. The stealth gameplay is great, reminds me of a cross between Metal Gear and Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven.Whoa! Thanks for the heads up. Never heard of such a thing before.
Quote from: Coffeeman on February 09, 2016, 05:53:07 AMKlei makes some great games. If you like TBS/tactical games, Invisible Inc. is another one by them I recommend. The procedurally-generated maps brought a lot of that tense, "what the hell's on the other side of that door" moments the original X-COM had.
Quote from: Agent : Orange on February 09, 2016, 06:31:34 AMI've never heard of Klei before but after the ninja game I'll be hungry for more. I loved the original XCOM from back in the day, have not yet had the chance to play the latest one though it is installed on one of the machines in this house. What's TBS stand for anyway?

Quote from: Coffeeman on February 09, 2016, 07:58:58 PMSorry, it means "turn-based strategy". Honestly, I couldn't get into the new XCOM to finish it; though that it worked well as a console game was neat. The original Microprose game can be played on modern machines now through OpenXCOM. http://openxcom.orgSort of what I thought, if you liked the original, you'd probably like Invisible Inc. Kind of retro-themed, 50's scifi (not obnoxious, though) espionage strategy where every map, every campaign you start goes differently.
Quote from: Agent : Orange on February 10, 2016, 04:02:03 AMLooking forward to the new XCOM, but I really only bought it because of how much I loved the original and Terror from the Deep. I will check out openXCOM, I've been playing it through dosbox which works well enough. I also messed with Amiga emulation for a while but the Amiga and dos versions are pretty much indistinguishable to me. I like the sound of Invisible Inc., I really loved the original Syndicate and a mashup of that with XCOM would really hit the spot. As for the 50s motif, remember Evil Genius?Anyway I wish I would have figured out TBS on my own, now I've lost all cred and have been demoted to noob
