Not better. Simply playable. And then not all games -- only the ones who were designed to be played with a stick on a large screen. The rest of the games would remain essentially unaffected by this change. "handheld gaming largely sucks", and your making this declaration based on arcade ports? :? N...

The logic (or the lack of it) in this thread baffles me. However, since it's mostly due to Recap's tepid responses, atleast it does not surprise: Any "original software" for a handheld you can think of could be much better on a TV system. That's a fact which leaves no room at all to be questioned. H...

Hmm, didn't I actually offer to help you make a site for your stuff some time ago on the Assembler boards..?

Anyway, I was bored, so I made up a .zip file of all your Super Fami game pictures from here. I also converted all the png files to gif format. You can find the file here.

Been there done that. Or more to the point, in the midst of doing it. I'm also clearing a lot of junk out, although I'm keeping a fair bit as well. If you really want to get rid of it, just start marking up stuff for sale with prices on them. If you're going to go with offers, you'll only sell the a...

There's also a Sakura Hotel , where a friend and I stayed for three nights at, and a Sakura Hostel too, which might be worth a look. We really didn't have an opportunity the book the place in advance, so we had to go to the Hotel, which I guess is the most expensive of the three, although still very...

Don't knock the PSP if you haven't tried it. The PSP is about the best thing Sony has come up with after the original PS. . . . . Right, so that's not saying a lot :P but it's a good console. The line-up may be severely lacking, but that doesn't mean there aren't any worthwile titles to pick up. Any...

"Mimick"? Do you mean "perfectly replicate"? That's not possible to ever happen.


This is why I believe there's always going to be bitmap 2D games, even ten years from now.
