Good luck figuring out how to get "2nd Player" to actually work on some of those ACA NeoGeo games

It's not just turn on second player and "cram quarters" and press start?

 

Size-wise it's 99% emulator, and there doesn't seem to be an incentive to overall optimize file size, let alone a requirement like back in 360.

Even for an emulator that's ridiculously oversized for a game that's under 1MB. I Never realize how good Capcom treated us with their rereleases and collections until now...

 

Also I knew Double Dragon would age, but on the NES it aged super terribly.

So no one told you deals were gonna be this way
Discounts a joke, not broke
Just trying to save money

 

It's like the sales are stuck in second gear
Same damn prices we saw last week, last month
And even last year but

 

We'll keep checking deals
(Gotta feed the backlog)
We'll keep checking deals
(Watching Wario64 tweets)
We'll keep checking deals
('Cause sometimes a price error's a steal)

 

WE WERE ON A PRICE BREAK!

This is obviously a different situation, we know that Sony paid for these as exclusives due to their popularity and ability to be system sellers. These small remasters aren't getting exclusivity deals.

Which overall makes it worse to me. These are their heavy hitters. Bring them to all platforms that can run them, please.

I liked it for a few seasons when it was still airing but got sick of it. I can’t stand it now. I remember and still occasionally see comparisons between it or Seinfeld or which you preferred. Seinfeld was great then and still holds up.

I could have paid $10 for the Friends thing but honestly I would never watch it so I just saved the money to buy games I will never have time to play. In my brain, this makes much more sense.

Is Japan just the last country to get the memo that, that shit don't fly? Even Ubisoft who's been grasping at straws to try and jump on every trend they can to make profit dropped it. Meanwhile Square Enix seems to have not fully given up on it and occasionally on Twitter I see Japanese media personalities shill their own NFT's.

From what I've gathered, there hasn't been as much pushback about NFTs in Japan for whatever reason. I don't know what the deal is.

Unless it's a newer MA code, take that code to foxredeem.com and choose iTunes for a free 4K upgrade.  Assuming you care about 4K and have iTunes connected to MA.

I like Seinfeld, but I also enjoy The Office, Parks and Rec, That 70’s Show, Community, and Scrubs… might have missed others but those pop to the top of my head. TV shows are relevant to the Xbox thread because of the Xbox One launch. I bought the Friends deal because my wife owns all the DVDs but it’s nice to have it digitally too for such a cheap price.

I Love Arrested Development, 30 Rock and many other comedies, but...well, the medium peaked with this scene.

I totally agree. Arrested Development had the potential but was never the same after being canceled and restarted.

I have not checked yet, but according to someone on Reddit, it is now streaming on Amazon Prime.

IMO, Seinfeld wasn't the best sitcom on TV when it was airing.  Took a couple seasons for it to really hit its stride, but by the time it did, so had The Simpsons.  Sure, The Simpsons is a shadow of its former self, but depending on when you consider its decline began, Seinfeld had either already ended or had experienced its own dip in the last couple seasons after Larry David left.  While the average has been pulled down over the last 20 some years, I'll still take peak Simpsons over peak Seinfeld.

Unfortunately this is probably way too late to matter. No new characters and online has been dead on Xbox for a while. With no crossplay this will only really be useful for playing with friends. I've heard KoF is fucked online but I think it's a matchmaking issue

MvC2 is the one arcade cabinet I've always wanted to own. These 1UP things just kinda suck though. Maybe I'll get it if it goes cheap enough eventually.

Why can’t they just relese all those games on console 😕. Would cost them nothing and they’d make a bunch of money

Forza Horizon 5 Weekly Challange - Chapter 1, Soul, Electrified - Drive the 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

 

Is anyone having issues with Chapter 1 not completing? I tried with both the Turbo S and the "Welcome Pack" and it won't complete.

Just found out tonight that there is a retail version of Retroarch available for Xbox. Watched this video once to get a general idea of what to do and a second time to actually follow along. I got it up and running with minimal effort. I still have a lot to do to figure it all out, but I did get SNES, N64, Mame, and even some Wii Shop titles tested and working.

Finished up Boyfriend Dungeon.  The soundtrack was surprisingly good.  Pretty easy 1K GS, depending on how good you are at the retro racing game.

 

Sucks that it’s leaving GP right before the free DLC expansion is going to be available.
