Well it does depend on if Gennos has a PSP/Vita or can emulate them. If he does, get that version like Christ I am completely fucking asleep but yeah do what OrochiGill said and get the PSP version.

Besides, Rydia's in all versions so who cares

But I'd say get the GBA version of FF5 and 6 at least since they're both good stuff.

Hehe, I thought so as well.
I just wanna stress something out...
You don't really need to buy a PSP if you want to game on the go. If you can find yourself a phone gamepad and have a decent (preferably rooted) Android phone then you're set really. I only got this because i can't stand touch controls and couldn't find a gamepad.
This video here shows me playing Tekken 6 through the PPSSPP emulator on a pretty shitty Samsung J2 Prime. The video is capped at 30fps but the game ran pretty smoothly. I was using a ps3 controller that i paired with the rooted phone.

Get one of the 8bitdo controllers. In my experience the build quality is top notch.

Edit: Here's the NES Pro that I typically use. The newer models have motion controls and rumble built in apparently.




Also I'm very very very irresponsible with money




I saw it on ebay go for the price that you usually see for just the headset untested . Only thing I added was the SNES adapter I got from a local second hand shop for a tenner. The stand's missing a piece to keep the headset steady but otherwise I'm pretty happy with the purchase.

Dec. 31st
(Was when I bought it, just didn't get around to posting)

I've never had a proper chance to play the original Spyro trilogy, since when I was younger I never had a stable PS1. I either had a rental system, or the PS1 I had never stayed with me long enough. However, I distinctly remember playing Ripto's Rage and a demo disc of one of the other two.

It sucks I missed out on the original run of these pretty slick games, but with this HD remake trilogy I finally get to play them through. I have beaten 1 and 2, I just got Year of the Dragon, then to %100+ each one, if I can.

Ooooh, neat idea. I might have to try that out some time.

Also, I know I'm super late on this but i finally got a PS4

A fair warning: the first model PS4s tend to overheat faster and sound like a jet engine after a while. Mine died within about six months, even with regular cleaning. Just giving you a heads up.

Jan. 10th
(Date of purchase)

As a child I had watched Animalympics on occasion and really enjoyed it. I never had it on VHS, but rather a tape it had been recorded onto, as parents and grandparents did just that sometime ago (yes, I'm an old timer XP).

I never thought I'd see the day this being on region 1 DVD, but here it is. I'm glad it has been restored, including the infamous "suicide attempt" scene, which I'd never seen before. I read about the scene and the article made it look like it was pretty terrible as it was removed from TV publication and reruns. The Tom and Jerry suicide scene was much darker than the one in this film, though.

The music is a bit silly and cringy, but not as bad as I thought it was gonna be after not seeing it for almost 2 decades. A lot of the jokes and caricatures based off then-popular celebrities and athletes are indeed dated, but I do get a decent portion of them. Adult jokes smattering here and there. The screentime is easy to sit through being around 76 minutes. An all-around joy.

Was certainly nice going down memory lane once more.

Yep ^..^ since it was made for TV the animation can be spotty here and thers, but the audio is pretty good for something so small. It's a nice, albeit obscure, piece of history that I thought would never see the light of day again. It also seems that only four voice actors were in this, though I could be wrong.

It's that one image host that requires permission or whatever before you can see the image, so you'd have to inspect element to find the image link to then request permission (ticking a captcha box) so you can see it.

tl;dr he has Smash Ultimate.

Thats really cool, now you can play the Time Crisis games on the PS2. Hopefully you still have an CRT TV around, because i heard those Guncons don't work on HD TVs.

I have a CRT but its crap, I have composite
cables and im looking for an old Sony Trinitron HD CRT
to game on, so far no luck.

They work with a hack but its too tedious for me to try.
