How's the lag? I find that low/no-lag projectors are super rare.


I have an Xbox one and I was really worried about lag on this projector. I read a few reviews that seemed okay so I went ahead and crossed my fingers and hoped it would be okay. TOTALLY was. No lag whatsoever. Even when running audio out to external speakers I saw no lag or sync issues. Honestly - everyone who has come over and played games on this thing has been seriously impressed. Very good gaming projector.

Is Brazil the place where you technically cannot buy used items from abroad but everyone does anyway? There was a country somewhere that had that rule, and the Japanese being the ultimate sticklers held me to it -- made me write "new" on the customs form for shit that was 30 years old and out of box.

Another package from the same guy as before. Everything except Ninja Gaiden, PB4 and the TV show are from him. DK64 and the GB game were tossed in as total freebies apparently, I can't complain.

Nope, I have a bunch of JP region games and have been into PCE since 2014. So I am relatively new but I have explored the library a fair bit even mahjong titles. Had to pounce on this chance to get some US stuff too for a great price.

I don't like Vasteel (already had it before) and this was an all or nothing type deal so I sold that and Dungeon Explorer II (don't need the US version) and I have next to nothing in the rest of it. :D

Nice. That was a typo though -- I meant "older systems" (in general). You post a lot of lots... admittedly w/ some killer shit in them.

Oh yeah I get it now. Nope and in fact I already had most of those dc and ps1 games posted earlier. A guy has been selling off chunks of his collection to me at killer prices and it's an all of nothing type deal.

Prices on old stuff are pretty damn nuts now.

On the DC and PS1 lots I kept some games, upgraded on condition for many I already had. With what I sold off (mostly my own copies that I already owned since the ones coming in are minty), I made some money and added these to my collection that I didn't have: Record of Lodoss War, Grandia II, Grandia, Xenogears, Parasite Eve 1/2. With the Saturn lot I sold the fighters, SOTN and D&D which I already had. Have $200 in the rest now. The turbo lot was the best yet. I don't like Vasteel and already had DEII. So I sold off those two and I don't really need the US Bonk's Revenge since it is on the 3 and 1 as well. Once I get that sold I'm looking at about $70 in everything else which is pretty much insane even in like 2010 let alone now.

Edit: I should add this was with me selling off the extras to friends and people that deal with me regularly for what I would consider very nice prices (eBay -30% for the most part) so if I really wanted to I probably could have done slightly better but overall I'm very pleased with it.

Very nice, very nice. I quite like Record of Lodoss War on the DC, despite it being a bit ugly. :)

All the Dreamcast and Turbo stuff was from that guy again, the rest was other random eBay buys and trades.

had my roommate take some pictures of how things currently are set up in a few spots. missing some recent pick-ups, the crt in that room isn't hooked up and sitting on the floor because i moved most the consoles into the living room to play more often, i haven't cleaned in a while, yadda yadda yadda.

Image

full gallery of game room shelves (lots to look at! big pictures!)

bonus gallery of living room shelves - again, not organized in a little while. one of the shelf cubbies are currently reserved for some anime pick-ups from the beginning of the year from a sale me and roommate grabbed and have been slowly going through lol

want to emphasize here that nothing has been like, spontaneously placed to perk the photos up - this is just as thing sit

I have space, but I have TOO MUCH SHIT so it's not nearly as clean as Kitten's set-up. Plus I'm just a slob. I'm eBaying some stuff I don't really need to clear up space. :shock:

Nice. You might like knowing the fan translation of the Saturn one is almost done.


I keep my stuff shelved and organized, but I wish I had enough space and shelves to line it up all fancy with figurines on display in between.

They're just kind of scattered around.

I beat the first 4 but it was many years ago so this will be a nice excuse to play it again. Thanks for mentioning it as I don't usually follow that stuff, I just wait to hear about it once games are actually ready to play.

ty for the compliments on my shelves, y'all. i put a hell of a lot of effort into organizing those and making them filled bit-by-bit with stuff i love, rather than when you usually see a big collection and it's just a filled checklist of every game on this or that system with whatever cheap merch can fill space (funko pops, sealed amiibos, etc.).

whoa, you've got a lain doll! i've got a lain statuette up in the living room -

there's also a huge big o with dorothy and roger as well as a renamon & ruki fig. i'm only a fledgling ABe fan, but i'm a big fan of chiaki konaka, he's probably my favorite writer (lain/big o/digimon tamers/texhnolyze/devilman lady/etc.). did you know he actually designed the rarer lain doll, himself? guy is (or at least was) a really big doll collector. used to have a website, though it's long since become lost in a corner of the internet archive. lain doll right here.

I played them all as well and remember very little. Pretty fun all in all. I actually played 5 but as expected, it was a bit of a turd.

Since they're being chucked out of shops now, I picked up a 2DS.

What games do you recommend? Seems there's a couple of good games, but not nearly as many outstanding titles as on regular DS.

my recs -

Spoiler: show
kirby: planet robobot is my favorite kirby game since super star. kumazaki took lessons from what was slow or a little boring in return to dream land and triple deluxe and makes what is almost inarguably one of the greatest kirby games ever made. very solid pacing, an incredibly fun & fast ride armor, and all sorts of powers to keep the toybox tremendously delightful. i also recommend triple deluxe, but it's not quite as good and still chokes on some of the flaws the other kumazaki games struggle with (overlong stages, unnecessarily stretched out boss fights, the game's unique gimmick slowing the game down rather than speeding it up).

i don't much care for zelda, as a series - in fact, one might say that i resent it - but a link between worlds is beyond just my favorite zelda game and one of my favorite games, period. it's the first and maybe last zelda to really take lessons from what made the first game good, and features a surprisingly non-linear but lovingly crafted and not-too-barren/open environment. you can do many dungeons and pick up most key items in any order. despite disliking a link to the past and this taking place in the same world, i really loved this game. try to buy a used copy with a clear file so you can start on hero mode, immediately - quadruple damage sounds like such a boring, sweeping change, but it works bizarrely well and actually makes the game a somewhat hardcore experience. great feeling combat in this one, too.

and super mario 3d land is probably the greatest mario game since super mario 3. excellent growth of design from galaxy and a really stellar marriage of the schools of 2d and 3d mario design being put together in one place. relatively low difficulty and waits til the 2nd half of the game (after 'beating' it once) to unlock the really good stages, but a pretty sheer delight just to move around in. made me really love mario again.

those are my top 3 recommendations. i feel like i hadn't loved nintendo design anywhere near this much and was even starting to hate them until this system. it's a shame you grabbed a 2ds, because these are arguably the three best games in 3d, too. really gorgeous. i find the 3d a lot more than a gimmick in each of these and a really genuine part of these games' aesthetic.

some lesser recommendations -

boxboy (and its sequels) on the eshop - HAL finally got to do something that isn't kirby again. solid series of puzzle platform games with a simplified but cute aesthetic. reminiscent of game boy design sensibilities.

NSMB 2 - this is a pretty minor recommendation as i think the game is only decent and tend to find the NSMB series to be extremely dire and lacking, but this is the only one i'd consider really playable. has none of the asinine backtracking or totally awful stages of the first game and veers away from the design present in the two wii/wii-u games that is more meandering and has too many awful secrets (unlike the wii games, this has ZERO secrets so lazy they're just "walk into the wall and find out it's invisible"). kind of nice if you love SMB3 enough you'd want to play a shittier new one.

animal crossing: new leaf - if you like animal crossing, this is the best one. highly charming world and lots to do with the usual schizophrenic design of either insisting you need to be constantly doing things and collecting stuff or only playing the game sparingly and keeping your limited inventory from massively overflowing. i both truly love and also truly despise this game.

the pokemon games are also pretty good if you've not played pokemon in a long time. widely agreed to be some of the best generations since inception.

SMT4 - ain't too bad, if you don't mind some discordant design and obvious lack of balancing they patch up with cheap DLC. takes flipping forever to level up demon partners for fusion or get enough money for a lot of stuff without that shit (and you destroy the game if you use it -too much-, never do the free level-ups on your main character, just use it to remove grinding tedium for being able to fuse your partners, imho).

i actually like the 3ds library more than the ds. once you remove the immortally delightful shu takumi games from the DS lineup (several the best of which were originally GBA games), i feel like there's not a lot else i really love other than knights in the nightmare and maybe elite beat agents/ouendan. it feels like the castlevania games are one of the biggest reasons people go to bat for that system, but how many times do you really want to play symphony of the night but worse? i guess i do still have a soft spot for PoR's goofy atmosphere. my problem with the original DS is that much of its design feels like... deliberately compromised for handheld or 'lite' versions of better games, but the 3DS felt taken very, very seriously. the nintendo games i recommended all have home console production values and care put into them. nothing will dethrone the original game boy as having the best handheld library of all-time, for me, though.

Every Fire Emblem and Etrian Odyssey game on the thing. I don't think I played through anything else on mine except any Mario exclusives as well.
