When Google held their own press conference at E3 this year, they talked a big game, promising experiences equal to, if not better, than anything you could find on a home console. Personally, it was easy to buy into the hype, even if I was skeptical. Media is getting more and more disconnected from the material world every year. It's inevitable that games will some day join the likes of music and movies in some digital streaming landscape. But after their E3 grandstanding Google went all but silent. I'd plunked down money to pre-order their "Founder's Edition" and still knew nothing more than what I'd heard in June. Only a few weeks ago did news break of more games being added to their lineup and shipping confirmations started going out to initial customers. After playing with Stadia for a while, I'd say some skepticism is still warranted.

The RF Generation community of collectors and players has committed themselves to demolishing the entire licensed NES library in the year 2019. Is that even possible you say, with your help it totally is!! Check out the RFGen 2019 NES Challenge thread to see how to join in at anytime throughout the year. There is plenty of opportunity to participate regardless of your skill level, favorite style of game or the amount of time you have to invest. Come over and play with us here:

http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=18893.0

Here we are everyone. The final month of 2019. It's fairly obvious at this point that we will not reach the goal of beating the entire licensed NES library in 2019, but we gave it a valiant effort and have put a monstrous dent into it. However, I and a few others still plan to keep taking down NES games this month to see how close we can get. Please join us if you want to mess around in the weeds of what's left of the Nintendo Entertainment System library.

I've written previously about the Trails in the Sky games, which is a series that has become near and dear to me over the last couple of years. After finishing the main trilogy that was localized and released in North America, the logical next step was to dive into the Trails of Cold Steel games, which are set in the same world and time period. I started the first Trails of Cold Steel title during the summer of 2018, and it took me roughly a year to finish it with many ups and downs along the way.

The Journeyman Project: Turbo!


The Journeyman Project was developed by Presto Studios and released for Mac in 1993. The following year an enhanced version was released called The Journeyman Project: Turbo which was compatible with Mac and Windows. This Turbo release is the one being highlighted today. The original release was developed and published by Presto Studios, with the Turbo release being published by Sanctuary Woods. This version would also see a Japanese release published by Bandai. A few years later in 1997 a full blown remake of the game was released called The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime.

Posted under gaming, review


I recently played all the way through a game that was really outside of my comfort zone. My regular listeners and readers will know that I tend to see gaming as a relaxing, leisurely activity. I am not a fan of difficult games. Life has enough difficulties and although I don't mind a challenge here or there, I'm usually not looking to get my ass kicked. I recently signed myself up for a swift ass kicking, but I did not realize it when I first started River City Girls. I thought I was starting a run of the mill beat 'em up in the vein of Turtles in Time, and although I quickly realized this isn't that kind of game, I stuck with it through the end and I'm glad I did.

Posted under Games, Collecting

Hi, So im going to try and use this as a basis of my "Collecting"

The name "Fakecollector" is that i dont really collect anymore unless im after a certain personal goal, Currently i want a xbox 360 shelf, and that goal is whatever the outcome on what i get in 2020 But im not collecting physical media like i used to if its not in reach from local stores anymore due to many things, Be it expense, Space, or the fact that i dont want to maintain a full on collection, Anyway, Let me tell you all a story.

So back in 2006 till 2015 I was big into collecting, But only the stuff i wanted and that i played mainly spanning Sega Systems but overall i was on the hunt for arcade games or arcade like experiences and JRPG's across numerous systems, I loved my disc based systems and only really invested a small amount into specific cart systems like the Neo Geo AES, PC Engine, Sega Megadrive, and Portable Cart based systems.

I had a big enough collection at one stage, Over 500 Games total with things i wanted and played, But then i questioned myself, What i wanted and what i want to do to take it to a new personal level.

Like with many people i like having the boxes of games on my shelf, The feeling of having a library to choose from, I was tired of the console setup, and using things "Like the old days" with the CRT monitors or ways to make them feel authentic.

To me i just want to play games, And if the "original" controller is in my hands in some form then emulation is the way for me to go, I Enjoy tinkering with emulation, More ways for me to play the games how I want them to play, The PC is my platform of choice but its easy to get every game you want and then just play, So i want to take it a step further and experiment.

We have Controllers that are 1.1 replicas of originals, Wireless, Modernised, and adapters for originals anyway, I want to make specific PC Builds, Low wattage, for certain consoles, I Like building nice hardware setups with quirks and RGB Lights just to sit and look pretty and do one job for me, Things need to be made hard to make this "Emulation x Collecting thing work" Anyone can grab an old computer together and have many emulators working, but again i want to make it more personal in the things i like.

Then we come to the games themself, My idea is to make my own library of my own collections / complations
of games, And its the most fun part, I can do this via DVD but its likely i want to do this with SD Cards and label them with my own artwork, Having the cases there with my own manuals and art is just gonna be a very personal way of me doing what i want to do, Someone comes to visit, Looks at the game shelf, wants to play something and its already on a computer somewhere.

Now i know its not an authentic experience, or the purist way to play, Far from it, but thats not gonna matter if i just want to enjoy the games and feel i have a collection i put time into.

Thanks for reading, And hopefully we will see how i get on with this in the future.

Smiley

Posted under Collecting, classic gaming

Hello game collectors.  Spoon here with a few tips for those of you who have begun the monumental quest for the rarest of the rare.  Yea I know, its a wild goose chase, but the fun is in the search right.  Besides, its better than being at home listening to the wife complain!  For me, walking into a retail video game store is like pulling teeth. Plus finding something that is actually rare is next to impossible at these places.  Most game stores wont even buy back anything more than a few years old anyways.  However, there are other places to commence your never-ending search.  If youre like me, youre not paying retail for anything!  Heres a list of a few places to keep in mind.

#1 Pawn Shops:  I get great pleasure scouring pawn shops.  Most of the time games are priced the same no matter their value.  Good for us, bad for them.  If they only knew what I would of paid for that NES Top Loader!  I even occasionally pull my nerd card out and call the pawn shops to see if they got any new video games in!  Laugh all you want, but you gotta be proactive at this.  No matter how big a nerd you are there is always someone out there that trumps you.

#2 Flea Markets:   Always beware the overly priced game stands at flea markets.  The better bet is finding someone who has acquired a stack of games and just needs a few dollars.  Also keep a look out for the little guys.  I have a regular that I visit every week.  I may only get a couple games per week from him, but guaranteed I got them for rock bottom prices.

#3 Antique Shops:  I hate hate hate antique shops, but I have scored some really good finds.  Always keep your eyes open or your game collecting ass of a friend will snipe a Vader 2600 right out from under you!  Also, be sure to ask the shop owners if they can contact you when they get something in. Ive got several shops that email me when they get video games in.

#4 Crackheads!:  For me this kind of ties in with antique shops since theyre in the same neighborhood.  Crackheads can be your best friends.  Im sorry but I could care less about theyre drug habit if Im getting a PS3 for $20.00. Besides, they can use the cash for food.   Its not my fault they would rather get high!  My best dealings with crackheads will be discussed in #7.

#5 Home town game shops: These can be the best or worst thing thats ever happened to you.  If you get in good with the owner, you can usually score some pretty good deals. Always be sure you know the value of what your buying!  For me I keep my iPhone at the ready.  There is a decent app called "VGT Price Guide" that shows the current eBay prices for a ton of different games.

#6 Ebay:  Im not gonna give away my secrets here.  Just keep in mind there are a lot of people out there that dont know what theyre stuff is worth.  If youre a quick draw you never know what youll score at 3:00AM.

#7 Online classifieds: There are a few of these on the internet.  (Craigslist, Kijiji, etc.) There is a major one I use with great success.   Search through the for sale ads often then be proactive.  Bring the goods to you, post a want ad.  Also be prepared to meet up with the #4s.  Late night runs are a bit risky but yield the best rewards.  When in doubt bring a gat!  Also dont forget the online forums.  You will pay more most of the time, but every once and a while you can pick up a great deal (especially if you buy in bulk).

.. ..

Well there you go gamers.  There are just a few tips for your pleasure!

Good Gaming!

Posted under Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima


I'm not interested in reviewing Death Stranding for various reasons, but I would like to share some thoughts about it.

Some creative works are impossible to separate from their creators, being indelibly linked by distinctive fingerprints.  Steven Spielberg, the Beatles, Neal Gaiman, Shigeru Myamoto.  Hideo Kojima will always be known as the respected creator of the Metal Gear series, but he has many less popular works that clearly bear his unique mark.

If you are interested in Death Stranding, the best way to judge if it is for you is not likely to be found in typical review numbers.  Rather, I'd start with the question, "Do you like Hideo Kojima's other work?"  And not simply Metal Gear, but the tone and exploration of his work more broadly.  What are your reactions to Snatcher, Zone of the Enders, Boktai, and even P.T.?
That would be the best way to know if his new, ambitious project is something worth your time.
