Re: hitbox controllers

It's like using a keyboard, if you're doing you're own thing - fine whatever. Competition stakes and designer intent - then joystick is the way go. Historical/cultural context - it's pretty much a travesty. Do tournements need regulation - yep - it's the same contraversy as something like turbo fire...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next

It's a really interesting prospect - but zero enthusiasm for the original or this myself... But... If this is your bag I can certainly appreciate how this is appearing to tick the boxes, and show promising signs of curating a community and longevity... If nothing else if it's great to tangentially h...

Re: Choosing between KoF98 on MVS or KoF98UM on PGM2

...keep both. But in terms of customers, or only having room for one, you can't go wrong with original. Only really niche competitive types will prefer um imho. There's probably more general neo / original fans, than super keen 98um players. Plus mvs - if you've a multi slot and have some other neo ...

Re: Megadrive Mini

Nice that M2 are involved, but for the same money you can pick up an original console and a Mega Everdrive X3... :batlove: Only for dickheads like us with a scaler or a crt handy. Also you need to sort out your cables. And do the (admittedly little, but still some) leg work of sorting out roms. And...

Re: Power Instinct Matrimelee - history and gameplay

It seems like Noise Factory has the rights, as they made the Taito Type X version, and the revision to it. Maybe Atlus owns home publishing rights and won’t allow them to port it to consoles? I think it's more messy than that. Particularly since noise factory and evoga are no more. I'd have *assume...

Re: Power Instinct Matrimelee - history and gameplay

I think post matrimelee Atlus just wrote it off the series since never emerged as a arcade favourite, and everyone involved in it basically disappeared right after v. The ps2 versions clearly point to some kind of uncertain rights situation already developing. I suspect likelihood is there never was...

Want to like it more than I do, same with rotd. A very strange offering - like it was a passion project and only ever signed off on because atlus wanted a beat em 'up, dev team were enthusiastically on board, but no one really knew why they were doing it. Never really worked out what's going on with...

Re: Polycade - Founded by Tyler Bushnell, son of Nolan

I am not pushing nor promoting as the intent.... Nps, didn't mean you personally - meant 'you' as in Bushnell/his company. Same with the license particulars etc. The intent is noble, the price I think could be more reasonable in commercial terms than it may appear to a home consumer (depending on l...

Re: Candy cabs for beat em ups?

Afaik was just custom or one-off-dedicated cabs even in Japan for most of the PM brawlers, more in the woody/US style than candy. There are the halfway house of the sega 'versus city' cabs but most arcades would just chain together 2 candy cabs each with 1p panels for fighters ...so no reason you co...

eh ... you'd have to get into the nitty gritty of the licensing terms are and the spread of games, but this isn't necessarily a complete non starter conceptually; too many black market solutions out there for sure. It'd be interesting to see if you could make a legitimate go of things. BUT ... the p...

Re: PC Gone Mad!

Consoles / pcs... It's literally getting to be much the same thing under the hood. You want a keyboard and mouse, and anything else the pc might do for you; cool go for it. Because it's there that there is value. And you've got to be totally comfortable with choosing at which point you'll buy in, an...

Nothing wrong with that, particularly if that was Dos Dedos Mis Amigos. loaded<->pwei<->designers republic<->wipeout == that's some key 90's cultural building blocks all interlinked right there...
