    Hmm, I started using the MAX with my NES because I am so used to grips now. When I was a kid though I loved the NES pad and actually preferred it to the SNES pad. Maybe it is because I grew up with...

    Yeah, like I mentioned - I like mine too. But not having select and start are really awkward. I was playing Wonder Boy in Monster World last night and it was just so weird having the items mapped...

    Ugh, this was kind of a snooze fest. I still think AVGN is funny but in the same way modern Simpsons is funny. It has its moment but its pretty clear his glory days are behind him. I think part of...

    Hey guys, mind if I barge in here?

    I just got my SMS hooked back up. I haven't paid much attention since I bought it a couple years ago. I only ever got one gamepad for it as the store I got...

    I haven't played the SNES version in at least 15 years so I can't really remember how it holds up but I think the Genesis port is a really good version of the game despite the shoddy visuals and...

    Well, I read from the Book of Nintendo as a kid and it had me convinced that the Genesis was absolute rubbish that didn't have any good games on it. Now my SNES sits on a shelf unhooked and...

    Yeah I'm not bothering with the demo or anything. I preordered the basic edition from Amazon so I'd have it on release day. Going in with no expectations (well, expecting it to be bad honestly) but...

    I had a lot of fun with Attack of the Mutant Penguins. I know a lot of people online give it crap but it is colorful and a bit crazy and I found the controls to be about as decent as a Jaguar game's...

    Really? I always thought the Jag controller was pretty bulky (and I've got big hands too). I have not used the pro controller though, only the standard one. How do you think the pro compares to...

    The Jaguar is actually fairly pricey on the used market due to its relative scarcity and the demand from Jaguar enthusiasts. If you can actually get a CD unit that works there are some decent games...

    If my stuff perma-breaks in my lifetime and replacements cannot be had, I will switch to emulation as necessary. Pong consoles from the early 70s and early 2600s still work great if taken care of,...
