RGB Pick Up Thread Of Swag!


#2143

That is so fucking awesome. I wish I could afford one of those, huge congrats on it Peagles!


#2144

My latest gaming pick ups.


#2145

Defender of the Crown got a Jaguar port? That’s awesome. I used to play that on my Apple IIgs all the time, great game.

Meanwhile, I picked up this little beauty as I’m starting to play more and more indies on the Switch:

First impressions are that I love it. Been using it in Smash, which feels fine once you get used to it, along with The Way Remastered (which I’m going to make a thread about once I finish it). I did, however, put some Hole Punch Reinforcers on the PCB to prevent accidental diagonals on the d-pad, and have had 0 problems so far!


#2146

Nothing earth shattering, but how could I resist, these were all $2.99 except Smanic. I had Zack and Wiki at launch and played almost to the end, got frustrated and sold it. Feeling frisky now and fear this game will go up in price so I jumped. Arkham Knight didn’t excite me at all, so I figured I would give Origins a shot. I heard it was good. Brutal Legend is a Shaffer joint so I’m sure I’ll enjoy that. And Crysis is Crysis. Been mildly entertained so far but I prefer the tropical setting of the first. Gives me a reason to take a break from Diablo 3 though. Oh and Ghost Squad because this genre is a dying breed.


#2147

Zack and Wiki is amazing. I bought it at launch after reading a review that compared it to the Gobliiins games from the early 90s.

I picked this bad boy up today, not really retro, but I’m VERY excited. First thing I did was flip the cover so Claire, the best RE protagonist, was front and centre. The PSX original is my original copy from 20 years ago (!!!)


#2148

DoTC on the Jaguar is a modern homebrew, made with approval from Cinemaware Retro. It’s a port of the Atari ST version, with upgraded music from the CD soundtrack, since the Jaguar has way better sound capabilities when compared to the ST.


#2149

Just ordered Zack and Wiki.


#2150

Got a new copy of Dragon Quest Rocket Slime for only $35. Really looking forward to finally playing this, also looks nice on my game shelf next to DQ Builders and DQ XI.


#2151

Rocket Slime is great. Myself and my kids played the hell out of that.

@blastprocessed Ghost Squad on Wii is superb. There’s so much awesome in there.


#2152

Zack and Wiki is brilliant - there’s still been nothing quite like it since it released. I was never good enough to beat the final level though, but I remember many of the puzzles being excellent. There was this one where you mix together chemicals in beakers in a lab which I remember the most.

I recently picked up Rage Racer.

Really looking forward to playing some classic Ridge Racer again. I hope it’s as good as Rave Racer, which is probably my favourite of the classic games. It’s a shame the home port of Rave Racer (PC + PowerVR) was cancelled.


#2153

Love Rage Racer, the European styling at the time was a revelation and so too were the vertical inclines and wild undulations the tracks have. I think it was somewhat inspired by Rave Racer so not sure how this will stack up against that, from what little I played I remember that being a lot more crazier, this might be too tame for you!

Big shame Rave Racer was cancelled, I remember the Edge preview at the time and I was dreaming of the day I could afford a PC that could play it.


#2154

A couple retro pickups of the last few weeks.


#2155

Picked these up today, issues 2 and 3 of the new MST3K comics from Dark Horse!


#2156

Had a quick go on it last night! Rave Racer is definitely crazier haha, though I wonder if a lot of that was down to the hardware, like the real-time audio mixing (the audio became warped if you fell from a jump).

The styling is really impressive for a game of its era - even the in-game visuals are quite impressive really. I’m just a bit rubbish at the moment, I need to dig out a proper controller as I was playing it with my Namco arcade stick for a laugh. Got a NeGcon on the way though!


#2157

Got both earlier. :slight_smile:


#2158

Shenmue 2, only on Xbox. Yeah, right. Only in the states more like it :stuck_out_tongue:


#2159

I loved that game. Great pull.

Rage Racer is my favorite in the series. I had the Japanese release so I have no clue if there were any changes to the way the cars handles when it got localized.


#2160

Nice to see more Rage Racer love! It seems to be forgotten by most, and definitely overshadowed by R4.

I picked up the Japanese version too for 60hz goodness (check out that clean cover art with the discrete PS logo), as my only other PlayStation is a European model.


#2161

Nice hack on the that d-pad. I just got one of these for Xmas and I love it. I’m basically playing all of my Switch games with it. I will have to look into this hack - seems like you’ve used two in each direction? Does the clicky sound of the buttons and d-pad bother you? Any solution for that? I am assuming an OEM rubber piece from SNES controllers isn’t exactly the same shape…?

Also seeing the pics of Rage Racer … I have a copy of this and somehow lost the disc. I NEVER loose stuff and can’t for the life of me figure out where it went. Grrrr


#2162

I used two as the 3 hole punch reinforcers had a pretty large inner circle and one wasn’t enough to cover enough of the pad. The clicky d-pad is pretty loud, but I’m starting to get used to it, haven’t looked at swapping any parts from an original SNES controller so I don’t know if they’d fit, sorry.
