Pirates/Hacks/Unlicensed/Bootleg Games. What do you have/like? What did you play when you were younger? Do you emulate them or play on physical hardware? Any obscure game you like to share?

Good Deal?

Was this a good deal /vr/, or what do you think? Stopped over to my local Goodwill. For 40 bucks I got: Super Nintendo (Looks like original wall plug, but not original AV cables) One Official Controller Mega Man X (Cart is clean as fuck) Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World (Clean as fuck too) Mortal Kombat II (also, clean as balls)

A few months ago I went down to my local bowling alley to play some arcade games (they still sport a few cabs in my town) when I saw that the Neo Geo they had was given an "Out of Order" sticker. I figured they would fix it soon but I was in today and the unit is disconnected but not moved, and I'm considering buying it. Its a four-slot in decent condition, a bit grimy but otherwise alright, and according to the marquis houses Metal Slug 1, Samurai Showdown 2, Bust a Move Again and has a fourth tile with the SNK logo. So I'm asking you guys for advice -- what should I test before buying so that I don't break the bank in repairs, how much should I ask for it, how much should I expect to pay and is there anything I should know before I take the plunge? This isn't a picture of the machine but the conditions of both models are similar.

What is the best Super Famicom Goemon game?
11 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Guys, I've decided to start playing old ps1 era rpg's and get back into retro gaming in general. Problem is my LED tv has no composite or component inputs. It has a couple component looking inputs but when I enter a composite cable the cables just slide right out. Should I just pick up a fat old tv for my retro gaming needs ? Is this the preferred way to play old games ? Are there any good rbg boxes or anything I can use to convert my old games? Thanks for any help with this.

A lot of people play games to go on adventures, or to feel like a kid again. Which game is the best for that? I don't mean "what game is good for that." I mean, what game is BEST for that? I'm not going to ruin this thread by starting with my opinion. I shall post it anonymously in a few minutes.

Draw an old game you can't remeber the title of, people guess what it is.

So there was this game where you were like an android or something. You bought some guns in between stages and fought monsters with the guns you bought, by aiming them. This is kinda what I remember the game looking like. I think It was a genesis game.

Are there any note worthy flash carts for the Gameboy/gameboy colour? I know about ever drive but are there any alternatives? perhaps ones that do an equal job but a little cheaper?

Only a little over 24 hours left until Shaq-Fu's successor's fundraiser (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/shaq-fu-a-legend-reborn) comes to a close! Will they make it and what are the odds this game doesn't blow just as hard as the original (My best guess is "slim-to-none")? Anyway, what is it exactly that made Shaq-Fu such a shitty game in the first place? Have any of you actually played Mortal Kombat on the genesis or snes lately? That game sucks too, honestly. Eternal Champions shits on it.

I deliver pizzas. There's this really shitty hotel I always deliver pizza too, and there's this awesome golden axe cabinet in it. Anyways, today I asked the dude working the front desk about it. He told me that he wasn't sure if it was for sale but gave me the owners phone number and email address. He also told me, though, that he works for another company that buys/sells/trades arcade cabinets, pinball games, pool and dart supplies, general amusement shit like that. Place happens to be on my way to school actually. He told me they're doing a bit of spring cleaning and a lot of stuff is getting tossed, or sold at dirt cheap, and gave me the owners contact info and told me to call them up tomorrow and I can come take a look around before school. Honestly, am I gonna find anything worth my time? I could score here, I could also just get dicked around and potentially ripped off on broken shit. It'd be the shit to find some old beat em up or fighting game, or even just a classic arcade game, for dirt cheap. However, I'm not really sure why they wouldn't completely overcharge on that shit. Also, could be a potentially great dumpster diving spot... Any tips or ideas on what to look for? Or is this a waste of time?

Are there any non-Lucas Arts retro adventure games that are of that quality? I've played Gabriel Knight and Broken Sword and I know Sierra and others must have made some worth playing.

Where can I order N64 AC adapter, RCA cables and a controller for cheap? Stone Age Gamers had them for an alright price but the delivery doubled it for no good reason.

Buying old consoles

18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /vr/, are any of the of the retron/retroduo/hyperkin systems any good to play old games on or am I better off buying the actual console? I wanna buy a genesis to play phantasy star/sonic games with an actual genesis controller and connect it to an HDMI tv but I'm not sure how it would look or if I'm better off buying something to emulate it and buy a genesis controller, pic related, makes me wanna get an actual genesis

Hello /vr/. I was wondering if there is a definite novel based on the Legacy of Kain saga. If not, it screams for quality literature. It would be fairly possible to write a book, perhaps two by looking up the written texts in manuals and copying the conversations in the game (perhaps I'm even missing some other relevant data). It would definitely require some eloquent style (capable of mimicking the awesome storytelling of the games) and great writing skills, especially as there is a lot of action; yet there are plenty characters to make it a balanced, story driven novel. Any thoughts, should we perhaps make this happen?

Hey /vr/, I don't know how late I am with this, or if making something of a request here is inappropriate, but Gecko Yamori seems to have taken down all of his remixes on Youtube, and all the mirrors for direct download of them are long dead. I was wondering if anyone might have his various Genesis covers of SNES music (Super Metroid, Blast Hornet and Toxic Seahorse's stage from MMX3, et cetera), or any of his remixes in general, as it used to be hosted for high quality download a long-ass time ago. I've tried everywhere, and it all seems to be gone. You're my only hope, /vr/.

Is it possible to burn a PC-Engine CD-ROM2 and play it on the actual hardware?
