I remember getting a skateboard when I was 9 because I loved the first THPS, and then learned the hard way that trying to do a fucking simple ollie requires advanced knowledge of physics algorithms and muscle control, so I just rode on my stomach on it and looked like an idiot while screaming "I. GOT. CYCO VISION" on loop

Anyway, does anyone here have experience with the XRGB-Framemeister? I gave up my broken/hefty CRTs and am now contemplating putting a preorder for one before they ship from SolarisJapan next month, but the fucking hefty price (almost $320, and it doesn't account for shipping) is putting me off. I have plenty of older consoles and games I want to get through soon, and I've read this thing is the absolute best way to hook these up to a modern display. Should I just buck up and quickly save the money for it and get a preorder in while I still have a chance? I see some motherfuckers selling these things used anywhere from $400-$600, so now would be the best time to get one. I also have a cheap S-video-to-HDMI converter, along with cheap component cables for my systems, but while those don't give me the best picture I want, they're still playable, I guess. Should I just stick with my okay cables, or is the Framemeister definitely worth its price?

The most experience I've had with a Framemeister is hearing about it, looking up the price, and saying "Oh fuck no."

If I had enough money to get a Framemeister, I'd just go all out and find a PVM or something. The combined cost and shipping can't possibly be as high as the Framemeister's price.

PVMs were something I considered, but it seems most that I find online that actually have a screen bigger than 5 inches and aren't in suspicious condition are always listed as "local pick-up only", which I'm guessing is because nobody really wants to pay to ship these niche, heavy things through the mail. Granted, I've only looked through eBay, and in a perfect world I would've gotten a nice Trinitron, but I just don't have the space for any kind of CRT anymore. I'll always have 2-3 different HD-capable TVs for a long while (at least until we evolve in the future from HD TVs and have them wired straight into our eyesockets like a nightmare, or are destroyed in 2032 when the reptiles finally rebel).

I'd love a decent PVM, though. Maybe when I move I'll put a bigger effort into finding a good one, but until then, the Framemeister looks like something I'd get some good value out of, if I can stomach the price, which I'm still really on the fence about.

I believe Dopply has a Framemeister? I could be remembering totally wrong, but I think he's the only one here who may have one. It looks really damn neat and if you don't want to mess with CRTs it seems like the best solution to making your games look their best on real hardware. I have a PVM, a 14 inch one and has a built in speaker so it's above most you'll see online, but it's still really damn small, way too small. It looks great but unless you sit like a foot away you wouldn't know it. It has a speaker, though! I'm an absolute madman so I'll probably end up getting a Framemeister too at some point down the line, so I don't have to use the TV for ants.

So I bought an R4 flash cart for my DS Lite (hurr hurr illegal games derrrrrp) and it says that you need a specific SD micro card for it, like I have a micro SD HC and I apparently just need it to be micro SD to work in my cart.

I'm a little over an hour into Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir.

It's good. Like, really, really good. I'm not even that huge of a fan of combo button mashers, but I'm digging the shit out of it.

I'll say more as I play more, but anyone who owns a PS4 who likes RPGs and anime shit and sidescrolling games and Devil May Cry and the like, it's totally worth a buy, at least from what I've played so far, if only for the graphics. I enjoyed Wario Land: Shake It!'s hand-drawn art despite the game itself being just sort of meh, but fuck man (I know)

I mean, I have it on PS4, and it looks amazing. I'm sure it'd look great on Vita, but more people are gonna have a PS4, and between the two I imagine the PS4 one looks at least slightly better.

    I love MDK, I really do, but my God does it get painfully atrocious by the time I reach platform-based areas. You can tell it was Shiny's intention to make the plank near the end of mission 5 stupidly narrow as possible so that we learn that Kurt Hectic has a little little bit of friction to make you go insane everytime you want to jump onto the same plank. Not to mention the game's dark look which doesn't help you tell where you go and you end up falling into holes that were placed in dead angles. My hands are cold and cramped. I need to rest.

    Instead of worrying about whether I should save up for a PS4 or a Switch, I bought a Wii bundle/component cable off of eBay last night so I can begin the process of phasing out my old Gamecube. It cost about $95 but I used PayPal so my primary bank account remains untouched lol.

    Unfortunately the only Wii game that I was able to copy over to an SDHC card was Super Mario Galaxy. Sin and Punishment: Star Successor was a no go because apparently you can't do that with any Wii games that use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, which means no Brawl either. Womp.

    Video games have just become a really tiring thing for me. When I was a kid I could ask my parents for a new game or console I really wanted, but having to rely on my own (very limited) income is proving to just be really tiresome. I can't afford the new fancy things everyone has, and there's constantly new games coming out all the time like "FUNZO WITHOUT FUNZO YOU'RE NOTHING" and I just get needlessly stressed over something that's supposed to make me happy lmao

    That's why I stick with a small collection of older games that I'm not in a rush to play but still want to beat. The only modern system I have right now is a 3DS, and even my library for that isn't terribly big.

    I've sunk a lot of time into the Vita version of Odin Sphere and are currently halfway through Oswald's campaign, definitely a character that grew on me as time went on in playstyle, but my favourite will still be Cornelius due to his powerful skills and immense juggle potential.

    I still need to replay the older quests to get everything and raise my characters to max level, but after going through the same bosses and areas it gets very tedious at times.
