Re: Wings of Honneamise (Shinjuku)

This is an amazing film. I remember purchasing the Manga Video release many years ago and absolutely loved it. That was the dub though as a sub wasn't available at the time (at least commercially as far as I know, and cassettes, especially imports were way out of reach price-wise for my teenage pock...

Re: Zemmix: Consolized MSX

Only really took the time to discover the MSX library very recently, I wasn't ever that bothered with it before. Some of the games look fantastic! What's the best system to go for? An MSX2+ or a Turbo R? Any recommended brands? Sony? Panasonic? etc. Also regarding software prices, is it as sky high ...

Re: Sayonara: Shibuya Kaikan

That place looks fantastic. What a shame. :(

p.s: I think that this game centre was mentioned in Brian Ashcraft's book, that's where I think I first read about it. Disappointed that when I was in Tokyo I never got to visit the place, or Ebisen for that matter.

Ah that is a bag of crap! Was the game centre attendant not even dressed up in some sort of really amateur-looking King Fossil mascot costume? :( Or, when you were next in line, and you approached the counter an alarm went off and all the monitors in HEY! would flash with: WARNING!

Re: Taito Classic Posters Fair

Nice work Mr. Shoes! What was the fair like? Anything to see and do, or was it just a 'queue up for posters and that's it' kind of fair?

Re: Taito Classic Posters Fair

It's loosely linked with the Darius games. In Darius Burst for example, one of the bosses turns in to the main character (the metal dragon) from Syvalion during the boss battle. Also there are some bits littered throughout the game that look like they came from other Darius titles, the 'nucleus' ite...

Re: So what do you play or collect...?

Coincidentally I just modded my Sega Mark III as the stock RGB output is ridiculously dim. Adding an amp makes it much better. :) There is a guide on Mmmonkey's website and also NFG Games detailing the mod, this is the same as the N64 RGB amp and the same mod I attempted. I fucked it up though by sc...

Re: So what do you play or collect...?

I don't do cabs now either. I did have an Astro city which I parted with earlier this year. I don't miss the hassle of rotating the monitor, messing with looms, wires, plugs, coin mechs and all the faults that go with ownership. I know it's part of the hobby and it's true, playing on a cab is near-o...

Re: Taito Classic Posters Fair

Yep. 3 days EMS, fastest yet I think! Talking of Darius posters price gouging, here's another auction on YAJ. Seller wants a minimum of ¥18,000 for the set now. I wonder if it's STV as the same seller sold the same set last week... http://page16.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u53254738

I just heard (literally seconds ago) that Darius and Darius II posters were at Hey! today and they sold out literally within minutes. :(

P.s Mr. Shoes, if that PCB is what I think it is, I hate you (sorta)! :D

Re: Busted controller port on PS2

I had the same issue on my PS2 fat. It was the control port ribbon cable at fault. Replace that and you'll be fine. Grab a junk PS2 and strip it for spares. :)
