  1. I've done a few recaps, mostly PC Engine Duos and a Game Gear, all of them necessary due to the use of surface mount electrolytic caps which were bad quality during that period of time (they tended to leak after a few years), aside from specific cases like these consoles and others already mentioned it's pretty safe to assume you don't need to recap unless you have obvious problems, most consoles use though hole caps that are safer, if you want to be sure you could inspect the caps in your consoles and see if you can spot bad ones: http://www.robotroom.com/Faulty-Capacitors-1.html
  2. I might play at least the sequel someday, right now I'm a little burned out, besides I'm trying to stick with my backlog (I'm getting used to Xenogears camera by now and beginning to enjoy it). Danganronpa seems nice too, thanks @Gloves, might give it a try as well someday, looks like it would be a good idea to get a Vita to play the series.
  3. Yes I got the real ending, after the 3rd playthrough I wasn't having it so googled tips on how to approach the game and finally settled to use a flowchart, turns out I was lucky to hit the prerequisite ending in the 3rd playthrough so I just had to do the real ending, I only missed one of the bad endings. I knew it was a visual novel so no surprises there, perhaps a little wordy at times, but the ending had too many twists for my taste and personally felt like a BS ending, some folks might like it but not me. I'll check out Virtue's Last Reward if I get in the mood for some point and clic
  4. That sounds much nicer, thanks for the heads up, might actually play the sequel one of these days!
  5. I finished my first game a few days ago, it was 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors, it was very enjoyable at first but after 3 playthroughs (covering every path available until that point) it just got so tedious, every playthough you can fast forward previously read text but you have to do the puzzles again, the puzzles were good the first time you solve them and I really like the point and click gameplay, but forcing you to solve them every playthough? The story starts nice enough and keeps things somewhat interesting, but it all falls apart near the ending, the game is so text heavy that it gave me
  6. I got 4 cabs in total, a Sega New Astro City, Capcom Impress, Capcom Status 18, and a Jaleco Pony Mark III, unfortunately 2 of them need work (Impress and Pony) other than that I'm pretty happy gaming mostly in the New Astro City, I got Super Street Fighter II Turbo hooked by default.
  7. For me 2020 was a little bit weak music-wise, had high hopes on some of the releases by bands I like but most ended up being letdowns, so most albums I enjoyed were from bands I hadn't listened before: Gum Country - Somewhere Fuzzy guitars & krautrock-like percussions held together by catchy pop melodies. Peel Dream Magazine - Agitprop Alterna Drone shoegaze with a pop kind of feel, reminds me of classic My Bloody Valentine. Strum & Thrum: The American Jangle Underground 1983-1987 Released 2020, it has some really good tunes from pretty much unknown bands.
  8. I see, not familiar myself with the G07, anyways it looks good, and you didn't have to mess with convergence
  9. Nice, did you do any pot adjustments at all? I bet you can easily get the image centered and stretched correctly.
  10. A few years ago I purchased online a 10 game SNES lot already priced well below market value, what was special about it was that the lot consisted in late SNES releases, I don't remember exactly what 10 titles it included but in 10 pictures it showed 10 different carts and it was stuff like Captain Commando, International Superstar Soccer Deluxe, Super Turrican 2, Castlevania Dracula X (this is the kind of stuff you'd get if you got into SNES late like in '96, at least here in Mexico). Anyways the seller is unexperienced so I walk him though the process of the online sale and all that, an
  11. Mine would be Street Fighter II, played it intensively for months when we got our SNES on Christmas, adjustable difficulty made me beat the game many times until I got to max difficulty, then the challenge was to beat it without losing a single round which took a while, beat it a few times on the arcade as well, then a few more times for a NA SNES Contest a few years ago, so yeah, nothing else comes close.
  12. My daughter is 6 years old (turning 7 next month) and just couldn't find something she really enjoyed playing co-op but she has low frustration tolerance, what worked best for us was Zelda games with me controlling the action and she giving suggestions on what to do, we've beaten Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild, it was until Ocarina of Time when she could pick up the controller and do some exploration/combat on her own, unfortunately it's not in the consoles you're looking for but if you're open to it give it a try. Some other sug
  13. I don't have pictures, but a lot of arcade stuff I've found has been incredible dirty, most of that stuff has been neglected for 20+ years so it makes sense, I've literally asked sellers if they've dug out their stuff, that's how dirty it gets sometimes, usually they're selling for dirty cheap so I don't mind too much. Next time I'll take some pictures when I'm about to clean something.
  14. Final list: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - Unbeaten Completed: 1/07 My rating: 5/10 The World Ends With You - Unbeaten (picking it up afer a year, lots of progress already made) Final Fantasy VIII - Unbeaten (will try to pick it up after almost 10 years) Bravely Default - Unbeaten. Xenogears - Unbeaten. Phantasy Star 4 - Unbeaten Mega Man 5 - Unbeaten Breath of the Wild 2 - Unbeaten (if it comes out next year) That's it, I'll try to stick to my choices and report any progress, have fun everyone!
