    Persona lite. Not into idol culture but it's a pretty good RPG with a fun OST. The cast is fun. The gameplay is Persona minus social links. I'm a sucker for anything that gives me Persona vibes anyway. Why I have Cybersleuth games on PS4 despite not playing anything Digimon before or since. But they are solid SMT mixed with Persona like games. Now I look to find where the Persona 5 Joker costume is in TMS.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Xbox One collection is growing at an alarming rate. I'm out of control with this new console-itis. XB1 stuff can be had so cheap right now, especially for new copies. Best Buy messed up and gave me Sea of Thieves Anniversary for $25. Fallout 4 $8? Evil Within 2 $13? Sure, why not? I pretty much skipped out on most of this gen, so it's all new stuff to me.

    Came upon a nice collection of LD's locally. The first batch of them got delivered the other day.

    The ones that are part of a boxset and collectors type editions, those were priced at R150 ($10) each.
    The three single disc versions at the bottom of the pic were marked at R75 ($5) each.





    Some of those special editions have really cool extra stuff. A variety of lobby cards, pamphlets, booklets, books (screenplays, storyboards, making-of, etc) related to those movies, the movie soundtracks on CD's, and other items such as foldout maps and even a bullet in a leather pouch. lol

    Also, included with some of the other LD's I'm waiting on, are some pretty average stuff but I got those because I checked up and saw that they fetch a nice amount. So maybe I'll throw those on eBay and see if I can recoup some of my money. The Haunting (1999) is one of those. The USA version. AFAIK, it was one of the final discs produced in the US and also has a Dolby Surround EX soundtrack. Apparently, that seems to appeal to the LD collectors out there.

    Do you watch those on a CRT, or a flat panel display?
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    You'd be surprised at how good VHS looks via S-Video connection on a flat panel HDTV. I have a large movie collection on several formats, and there are a number of movies I have on VHS which never made the jump to dvd, let alone blu or uhd. So it's nice to have a functioning S-Vhs deck. I'd imagine the image would look much worse with a standard VHS player though.

    I realize that has nothing to do with Mike's laserdiscs, but I would think that a LD player hooked up to a flat panel via s-video would have similar (likely better) results.

    I hooked it up to an older Sony WEGA. It's a 2006 model rear projection LCD. (KF-E42A10)

    In terms of a player, currently the only dual-side one that I own is a Sony MDP-V7. It has AC-3 RF-out. And I use that with an older Sony AV Receiver which has a demodulator built in.

    So all Sony's here. I guess I'm not a pioneer.

    I had a Fisher 4 head Hi-Fi VCR that put out amazing sound (I had a Sony Pro-Logic reciever at the time) and picture quality, even with composite video on a CRT. I didn't think that DVD (with S-Video) was a massive step up in quality, because of the tiled video output with MPEG. I regret the day that I threw it in the trash, when it started eating tapes and locking up. I have a 6-head VCR that isn't even close to the quality of that old Fisher set.

    Some recent snags. Quite a bit, actually.

    Raiden Fighters Aces!

    That's a win in itself.

    Had a little left from my last Ebay gift card, so picked up Pac Man 2 The New Adventures for the Genesis. I know Pac-Man is a quirky little bastard in that game. Got it in yesterday.
