    Yeah. I missed the Toys R Us experience. It was mostly Walmart. I did go to KB Toys once in a blue moon. Toy stores have such great atmosphere.

    Mail order is really killing things.

    It was an experience... Oddly my TRU had a certain smell to it that I can never describe (but still remember to this day).

    To be honest, people overall have killed all of it. Call it greed, cheap, whatever, but people have killed a lot of things that were fun.

    Edit: Sorry for that last line. Was in a mood and yeah, sorry. So anyways, are they finished with the entire Sega Mini game list? I haven't paid attention in a while.

    The malls keep dying around St. Louis. Chesterfield and the Gallaria are still going. Crestwood is now just an empty field.

    Aladdin on SNES and Genesis are both great games that deserve to be played. Some of what makes the Genesis version so fun is the joy of its animation, sure, but I think that's a legit quality.

    It was never really about console wars crap for me. I guess you could say I’m biased towards better games - it just happened I felt the better games were more often on Nintendo. Never had a problem acknowledging that Streets of Rage on Genesis was far superior to Final Fight on SNES. Until I played it I thought that Genesis had the better Aladdin game based on looks alone. Strip the animation away and I just don’t think it’s fun. Same to this day, something like Cuphead has impressive animation but it’s not something I’d call fun.

    Of those 4 million Genesis Aladdin sales, I wonder how many actually beat it. 40,000?

    I never owned Genesis Aladdin but I do recall beating it. I remember Jafar being particularly frustrating to beat but I can’t say why.

    I remember people arguing in favor of the Genesis version because Aladdin uses a sword.

    "Oh yeah, just like in the movie! ...for all of three seconds, at the end."

    While Genesis' visuals were more faithful to the film, the more parkour-styled gameplay seemed truer to the character to me.

    Incidentally, I've not had the pleasure of playing either...

    Allow me to make that TMNT fan game even more relevant to this thread: it runs on the OpenBOR engine, which apparently runs on the NES/SNES Classic. Now the caveat here is that I've never personally tried it and I have no idea what the performance is like, but I do occasionally see people asking for help on getting OpenBOR running.

    Regardless, I'll download this for later use.

    I'm intrigued, but not enough to buy one since I have no emotional attachment to the Commodore. The Mini was good enough for me to pick up since I remembered it as a competitor to the Apple ][. I played that a while and now it is back in the box for now.

    We're one step closer to an Apple ][ mini!!! Yeah right.

    I do actually want one of those (Apple ][), but only if in addition to the games it lets you program in BASIC.

    There is a new version of the Super Retrocade. It is supposed to perform better. It would have been nice if they had an option to flash the firmware on the older one.

    Funny. I bought the ver 1 a while ago since I saw Bad Dudes was on it. Didn't care for the really blurred graphics so now I know. Didn't know how modifiable this thing was though. Now I gotta check it out.

    We have a local bigbox discount store in town (Hudsons) that apparently has some of the asteroids arcade1up machines. Some friends of mine are keeping an eye on them to see how much they're discounted. I think they operate on a weekly schedule, so every week they don't sell, they discount them more. They hopefully will reach about 60$, and my group might be swiping the lot if they get to that point. I'd be turning mine into something more useful though.

    So I picked up a C64 Mini a few weeks ago as a birthday gift for my wife. We finally hooked it up a few days ago.

    Holy crap, that controller really is dogshit.

    And while the FAQ says that many other USB control pads are supported, both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers do not work. I might have to pick up a USB adapter for PS1 or PS2 controllers to properly enjoy this thing.

    Oh well, we still had some fun with Jumpman for a bit. Until I kept accidentally hitting the small triangular button to the upper left of the joystick, which resets the game.

    I didn't see anyone else share it, but Digital Foundry looked at the Polymega multi-machine console shown off at E3.



    Multi-machine emulator hardware that doesn't suck (and isn't just a PC?). Time will tell. It looks slick, certainly.

    I need to check on the state of the sideloading/hacking community for it. I never owned an original Playstation, so there's a certain novelty appeal (I could live without those controllers though).

    I forgot about this thread, so I'll post here as well.

    I'm trying to decide between an MK Trilogy Arcade1Up cabinet and the new Marvel cabinet coming out next month with Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men: Children of the Atom, and The Punisher on it. I'm having a hell of a time deciding and set up a poll to help.



    There are reasons for wanting and not wanting both. For MK, I love the crap out of MK, grew up on MK and would play 2 and 3 like hell. Though with the Marvel Cabinet, while I'd not have the nostalgia factor and likely not play the fighting games as much (I'd still play them as I do love fighting games in general), I do like the idea of having a palate cleanser of a beat-em-up with The Punisher so that it's not just all fighting games all the time. The Marvel cabinet also has a more standardized button layout that would make it easier to eventually mod in the future with more games.

    Aw darn, I can't vote since I don't have Twitter. I was going to say go with the MK cabinet even though you said you are thinking of modding it later on. Mainly because I believe that there would be more MK fans than Marvel ones so if you decide to dump it you'll more likely to find a buyer of the MK cabinet. Plus you have more of a connection with the games and will less likely get annoyed with it.

    Besides, I'm sure that there will or is a button board you can swap with the controllers to make it more universal.

    So I was able to get a Playstation Classic for 5 bucks. That was worth it.

    Now to decide if I want to try adding some other games to it to make it slightly less crappy. I don't really have a great way to play my old discs any longer and the classic would be the easiest way to do it.

    From my occasional poking in on that side of the Discord I'm in, it's still not nearly as elegant as the NES/SNES Classic stuff. I think part of that can be blamed on Sony's UI.

    I just thought of another point for MK and against the Marvel cab. If at some point down the road Arcade1up came out with a MvC cabinet, I'd kick myself to the Moon and back for getting the Marvel cab. I wouldn't ever have to worry about that with MK.

    I suppose it might be different for a big MK fan, but I would personally only consider that cabinet as having two games, since Mortal Kombat was made essentially obsolete by Mortal Kombat 2 and 3, IMDO.

    I also think the layout if the buttons, while good for mk, would end up being annoying as how do you own one and not get the urge to add more games?
