Blade Runner II ?
People who've already seen Blade Runner 2049 are saying it's really good. I can hardly wait to see it for myself! :w00t:

In the meantime, here's another short to wet our appetite.

This guy probably does a better overview of Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 than I can do.

Mario Kart Arcade GP - Nathaniel Bandy

I'm now at the Pac-Man Cup (Master Difficulty) and the game is starting to get challenging. I love it! :wub:

So are those of you who got the SNES Classic Edition satisfied? What game did you start playing first? How do the controllers feel?

Wii Shop Channel (WiiWare, VC) to close Jan 31 2019 (partial shutdown sooner)
It's a testament to the huge user base of the Wii that Nintendo is keeping the service up until 2019. I've already purchased all the games I wanted from the Wii Shop Channel so I've got no complaints. It's been a very worthwhile service. :yeah:

Back around the time TimeSplitters: Future Perfect was released on the GameCube, I recall hearing that it was pretty good in multiplayer. Never got a chance to experience it myself but all my friends who were fans of GoldenEye and Perfect Dark spoke very highly of it.

I was considering buying a used copy of FP and then noticed that it's still rather expensive for such an old game. I wonder if that's because of popularity or because not that many copies were produced?

So do you have the big arcade cabinet in your garage then?
No, I'm playing it on a Homebrewed Wii via Nintendont. That gives me access to both Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 & 2 as well as F-Zero AX since they all run on Triforce arcade hardware. In case you didn't know, the Triforce arcade board is very similar to the GameCube spec wise so the Wii can easily emulate it.

The only Mario Kart games I don't own now are Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart Arcade GP DX and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. That's because I don't own either a 3DS, 2DS or Switch and because Mario Kart Arcade GP DX doesn't run on Triforce hardware.

The Cult of Mario Kart
I'm currently slowly working my way through Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 and I'll post up a proper review when I'm further along. My initial impression is that MKAGP1 plays great although it does take a little getting used to since the items are so different from other MK titles. Also, the track design feels more Ridge Racer than it does traditional Mario Kart but I guess that's to be expected since Namco had a hand in development. The thing that caught my attention immediately, though, is that you get a brief protective shield if you pull off a mini turbo around a corner. Too bad there isn't some way to activate that on the straights because that's were my opponents usually pepper me with items. ^_^

Since TimeSplitters has been mentioned, are the GameCube versions still playable today? Which is better TimeSplitters 2 or TimeSplitters: Future Perfect?

Itís really not Nintendoís fault. Limited components are part of the blame, but itís also hard to get shipping space out of China right now.
LOL, and if you believe that I've got some swamp land down in Florida to sell ya. :lol:

It's beyond obvious that Nintendo's marketing strategy since the original Wii is to limit supply to spur demand. However, that strategy seems to have backfired as proven by the PR nightmare that limited availability of the NES and SNES Classic caused.

What games are you playing?
Right now I'm playing Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 & 2 on my Wii! :w00t: This is made possible because Nintendont emulates Triforce hardware quite effectively. As a huge Mario Kart fan, I've wanted to play these two rare games for a very long time and I'm extremely happy that I finally can.

Sadly, Nintendont won't allow me play the third game in the spin-off sub-series 'Mario Kart Arcade GP DX' but that's no problem because my local Dave & Buster's still has it. I like playing it there too because my friends and I can go head-to-head linked although admittedly it is pricey. >_<

The Nintendo Switch Topic
Surprise, more unethical business practices going on at GameStop. <_<

Some GameStops Refuse To Sell Switches Without Bundles, But GameStop Says That Shouldn't Happen

One GameStop employee, speaking anonymously to avoid career repercussions, told Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier that the company is pushing stores to attach games and warranties to all Nintendo Switch sales. "It's not necessarily a quota per se, but it is heavily addressed and ranked between stores in districts," said that employee.

On the plus side, my local Walmart had 9 Switch consoles in their case when I was there this weekend.

Anyone who's ever raced against me in Mario Kart 8 will know immediately why I like this car. :lol:

Hey Cabanon, that CRT on the left is a Toshiba, right? What size is it?

N64 fps
Weren't early FPS titles like Doom often referred to as corridor shooters? That seems to be the difference in my mind in that games like GoldenEye and Turok moved the action to more expansive outdoor environments.

Personal note: back during the N64 era, I didn't really care too much for first-person-shooters preferring third-person-shooters like Armored Core instead. Years later I did love playing the original Halo, though, because me and my friends would network several Xbox consoles together for some amazing LAN parties. I guess Halo changed my perspective enough that nowadays all I seem to play on my PlayStation 4 are Call of Duty games. :P

Nintendo 64 Forever: Happy Birthday thread
Wow, 21 and legal. Happy birthday Wildfiremicro! :gift:

Whatcha got planned to celebrate, cocaine and strippers or maybe just a night of intense N64 gaming? :lol:

Project M
To be completely fair to Nintendo, they've never threatened to shut down CTGP Revolution despite the fact that it does essentially the same thing that Project M does. It's the PM tournament scene and potential sponsorship and prize money that Nintendo seems to have a problem with.

Not closing any stores as of yet, just reorganizing.
From the CNBC article:

"The retailer has $4.9 billion in debt, $400 million of which has interest payments due in 2018 and $1.7 billion of which is due in 2019." :o

Is this reorganizing or just delaying the inevitable?

Personal observation, there's always a bunch of people in the toy section of my local Walmart - just sayin'. :rollseyes:

Watcha Listenin' To?
Nice stereo separation with headphones.

Project M
On so many levels the story of Project M is fascinating. Even people outside of the Smash community are impressed with the resourcefulness of the development team and how they were able to turn Super Smash Bros. Brawl in to a tournament worthy game. But ironically, it's not the tournament scene that's keeping the legend of Project M alive. It's really just small pockets of fervent devotees playing at places like the Balcony who are turning PM in to more than just a game, and something akin to a parable of idealistic good versus corporate evil.

Smash at the Balcony

The Balcony is so grassroots that it sorta reminds me of how the muscle car movement of the mid to late 1960's got started.

ok so my sister was getting rid of her rear projection tv last weekend and I picked it up to see if it was any good. it's good when you sit right in front of it but as soon as you go in angle its very bad. taking a picture of proof score on GH/RB is a bloody nightmare. anyway, here's the setup. left Tv is not hooked and will probably keep it just in case. Im looking to replace that fat TV with something more modern like I have upstair but it's quite painful findind one at good price. anywa, here's the pictures. sorry, my phone camera suck, it's over 4 years old.
That looks like a proper man cave. :yeah: That sexy red Wii caught my eye straight away. :lol:
