  1. Yeah definitely, anything "new" on Dreamcast is always a good thing!
  2. Some intrepid coders have been converting Sega Atomiswave arcade games to the Dreamcast, and the results are really impressive!
  3. I think it was YongYea did some tests, 45GB game copied over to internal storage in about 8-12 minutes so not too bad, and unless you are really hammering old games and want the quick resume feature, you can just leave them on the drive and run them over USB.
  4. I think I would go the S route, it certainly seems like a bargain, but like you said, once you add another SSD you might as well have bought the X. I hope that third parties start coming out with cheaper options, in theory Sandisk or whoever can come out with a compatible option, but from what I have seen, the external USB transfer option isn't that bad considering you can run backwards compatible games straight from a USB drive.
  5. Add your first impressions or a mini review here, if you want to go uber in depth, feel free to create a new post.

  7. Could be, probably going to end up with on of those "Nintendo seal of quality" situations where they require everyone to pay a royalty to make something that fits.
  8. Absolutely shocking, they must be planning on releasing their own at considerably more than what PlateStation were offering them.
  9. I have a box somewhere of random ones and all the eternal sonata faceplates.
  10. https://www.platestation5.com/ Obviously might be worth holding off until people get these in their hands to see the quality, but pretty impressed by the price considering it's two door sized sheets of plastic. China won't be too far behind the curve on this, so expect a million face plates on Wish soon.
  11. No worries, will work it out, I installed MedGUI and had a play with the advanced graphics option and there's a lot of options to go through, so hoped you had a .cfg file or something with your settings. Will have another play with it on the weekend and share my settings once I work through the options. Cheers
  12. What settings are you using for Mednafen? had a quick play with it last night and I got "pixels so sharp it cuts your eyeballs" or "so smeared it looks like an abstract painting"
  13. I... don't like it... maybe it's because I am so used to the XMB on the PS3, but this is too visually "loud" for me. I can understand picture in picture for something like a game guide as you are playing, but why when I am in a game would I want to watch someone else play a different game? I do like the hints system though for unlocking trophies, I think that is quite clever, not that I worry about getting platinum for anything these days.
  14. Yeah my RTX 2070 Super can happily hit 70C+ in some games, and that's in a big case with multiple fans. Very impressed by how well it handled having the top covered, while obviously not something you would do in the real world, it's still not choking on the heat.
  15. I haven't tried emulating the Saturn for years, as I have two chipped Saturn and a physical copy of the game, anything I don't own I just burn to a CD and play on the real hardware. Definitely going to try Mednafen though, since I got my new TV that doesn't have SCART, I have been using cheap SCART/S-Video to HDMI upscalers and the picture isn't that great.
  16. Yeah send them my way fella, cheers!
  17. Some very good suggestions already, definitely try Panzer Dragoon Saga, it is simply amazing. Baku Baku Animal, I have always had problems with matching games due to being colourblind, but I can play Baku animal for hours. Shining Force 3 is a great RPG as mentioned above, I really should get around to finishing that one day. Radiant Silvergun is a must try if you haven't tried the HD re-release, just obviously you will have to find a hookey copy from somewhere unless you are feeling very flush with cash. Burning Rangers is great but gets a bit samey quite quickly, but it's
  18. Yeah, I joked about the next gen just being an ATX desktop, but in reality they are probably going to have to water cool the next gen to keep it in the current form factor. Although MS have taken the first steps away from the VCR form factor, so maybe they will keep advancing and letting form follow function, depending on customer reaction to actually trying to fit such an odd shape into an average entertainment centre.
  19. Ah cool (pun?), the quote I put was from a French journalist, who has taken down his video. Seems weird for a journalist to damage their reputation by putting out such an inflammatory (pun!) statement.
  20. Interesting! His original quote was this: Was he just being dramatic or was he pressured to take it down I wonder?
  21. This gives me a better context of the size of the console, it's roughly the size of a Japanese businessman's torso, which from experience won't fit in my display cabinet... I'm getting the feeling we will be seeing furniture "certified to fit the PS5/XBOX Series X" from Ikea in the next few weeks.
  22. Yeah it's still a very open ended question at this point if it's a problem with the hardware or just a one off or a bad batch of consoles. It has been noted elsewhere that there is very little (any?) "recorded on Series X" footage, most of it has been "recorded on PC, representative of Series X hardware" so I am curious if this is in any way related. There have been other Series X hands-on reports that have not mentioned excess heat, but this might be to a different batch of hardware and it not being an issue or just the journalists weren't stressing the machine or even looking for heat proble
  23. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/journalist-says-xbox-series-x-can-get-hot-like-a-fireplace/ Not sure if this is a backwards compatibility thing, an early/test hardware thing or a one-off hardware problem thing, but interesting to note that two journalists have reported the same high temperatures. Would be interesting to keep an eye on this as the launch PS3's (and 360's) had similar problems on launch, but not quite "I burned myself" bad. At least they are launching at the right time of the year, and the shape will allow it to make a convenient foot stool to keep your tootsi
  24. I can see Sony doing some aggressive purchases as well to counter this, there's some rumblings of Sony buying Konami, but they would need to buy some other big publishers to counter the reach of Zenimax. I could definitely see MS dangling the game pass carrot under Sony's nose when they start getting hungry for those big big franchises. I think this is going to be one of those console generations where the consumer is going to lose out massively on both sides of the console camp.
  25. PS5 Phat, but probably closer to xmas Only one or two launch titles that interest me, but not at £70, and as I have had PS+ for years I have a huge backlog of PS4 games in my digital library that I have never played as I was too cheap to buy a PS4. Cyberpunk 2077 will tide me over from PS5 launch until xmas, and by then there should be second hand copies of the launch games and some new titles on the horizon. PS5 will essentially be "the ultimate PS4" for a while for me. Kind of worried about MS buying Zenimax though for the long term implications of things like Fallout/Skyrim/Wolfen
