Is there any benefit to running GameCube games on the original hardware instead of a Wii? Because you can buy a Wii and an HDMI adapter for half the cost of just that GameCube HDMI adapter.

The image quality is cleaner on the Gamecube. The difference probably isn't worth the price though.

You'd get more value out of a scaler like the OSSC or the RetroTINK-2X, where you can hook up more than one system.

From the article:

Oh great Shenmue is on Steam now!” SO HAPPY FOR YOU! Sure, we practically bankrupted ourselves to throw $50 Million dollars behind Yu Suzuki so he could INVENT SANDBOX GAMING but hey, glad you’ve got an extra $20 two decades later to plunk down to see if it was worth the hype.

Apparently, there's a list of SMS + FM games that includes a bunch of PAL releases which were never released in Japan. So the expanded FM audio has been hidden in those games until recently. :oshocked:

I know it's crappier but I prefer the PSG sound we got in our games over the FM music.

I agree with a few of them.

The History of Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat is as big a part of my childhood as anything. My brother and I would gather around the SEGA Genesis for hours at a time, mashing buttons trying to pull off the dreaded 'Fatality' finishing moves.

Shiggy probably has his own building with a music room and a rooftop garden now...

And if not. They've stooged him over big time.

I was just on my way over here to post this, :olol:

2019 is looking pretty good for the Mega Drive; Shinobi, Xeno Crisis, Mighty Final Fight, Tanzer and Crypt of Dracula all looking good. "thumbsup

...I almost forgot Sega Sonic Bros!
