    Yesterday I was playing the Xbox live version of Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion. Very cool, I never actually played it on the mega drive.

    5 minutes ago I was playing Alex Kidd in miracle world on a crappy little handheld machine I bought in cash convertors for a fiver.

    Later I plan to play Mario 3 on my 3DS XL.

    I fuckin live retro

    Same here but playing it all on my Nvidia Shield on emulators with the great controls, the retro games have never felt so good.

    I love how that comment is just as valid in 2014 as it was in 1994

    Hey,

    Do you use a BNC to Scart adapter for that? What do you do about the sound? Do you find the built in speaker adequate?

    Yeah, BNC to Scart from RetroGamingCables. I find the built in speaker fine for the majority of 8/16-bit era.

    I must say, having a Japanese Super Famicom and SD2SNES is fantastic!

    got my N64 out, love the Smash Bros. and Pod Racing... not retro enough for you?

    ok, then how about the wife and I playing bust-a-move on PS1... more retro??

    ok, ok, then how about Ducktales??? well, my wife plays that game more than I do, but I cheated because it's the remastered version for Xbox360.

    so, for true retro... bombs and bugs for PC, loved this game and still do

    HA! I totally forgot about Timesplitters 2... everyone was playing Halo at the time this came out, but I had the most fun playing TS2 on PS2, all nighters with a few friends and I've never had as much fun on a multiplayer fps. The controls were trickier, but more fun in the end... be sure to play as the monkey when in multiplayer, so small and fast!

    Never really played many games on consoles after tomb raider on a ps one. All games after that I played were on a pc. So never got used to the consoles controls. But played timespliters on the PS one and loved it. Yeah the arcade mode is really fun.

    Does it class as retro as it is around the time that this thread started.

    Annoying that you can't play timesplitters 2 on the 360.
