I never seem to have money in the budget when stuff does go up. Most recently the Innsmouth Mansion CIB was in stock, but then sold out by the time I could afford it. One of these days, maybe...

An interesting run-down by the folks over at Digital Foundry. Sounds like quite a lot of care went into the various emulation methods on offer - worth a read/watch if you’re curious.

I saw an article about this a few weeks ago. Looks good, but I will bet anything that it fails big-time. I would be surprised if they even issue another cart. This type of thing is just too obscure to survive.


Yeah, I don't imagine it's going to take the gaming world by storm and fly off shelves or anything - it's admittedly a niche product aiming at a niche market. I've got high hopes that at least what's been announced for later this year will see the light of day, but only time will tell, I suppose.

I'm heartened that they're doing the diligence to license the games from the rights holders, and the cost per cart feels reasonable to me, so those are points in its favor.

Hey all,

I just found out about this little guy a few days ago, and something about it feels very exciting to me. Maybe it's the idea of collecting (numbered!) cartridges, maybe it's the mix of popular and obscure games on offer, maybe it's my portable gaming fascination... but it's probably a mix of all of those.

I know there's a good mix of vintage/retro gaming collectors here - what do other folks think about it? Personally, I'm pretty close to just going all-in and preordering everything on offer.

Honestly, I'm more than a little conflicted about the whole Facebook ownership of Oculus too. But the ability to play Beat Saber 360-degree levels without any wires getting in the way was too enticing to pass up. ;) Coming from a PSVR setup, where I basically had one fixed spot in the middle of my living room where I could play, the freedom to play anywhere in the house is so freeing!

Right now I'm deep into Tokyo Chronos, a visual novel game built for VR. It doesn't seem at first like a genre that would benefit from the extra immersion, but there are a few moments that pack an extra punch from feeling like you're right there in the midst of the group.

Also just started dabbling in sideloading content - so I'm curious to try out Lambda1VR too!

Hi all!

Curious to hear if anyone else here at PVB has taken the dive into the Oculus Quest yet. As a stand-alone, portable VR headset, I'm struck by the conceptual similarities between the Quest and the VB. Playing with two Touch controllers is even similar to using the VB controller - albeit with two analog sticks instead of D-pads.

Not *exactly* VB related, but I was gifted with an Oculus Quest, which I’ve promptly sideloaded a VB emulator onto. :D Nothing beats playing on the original hardware, of course, but uh... this comes pretty close!

It's somehow cool to see a person your size in one of these games.


This was the most striking part of Arkham VR for me - there are a number of times where you're just standing right next to life-size models of other characters. In terms of immersion, this is by far the best one I've played so far.

Haven't honestly had much time to dive into the PSVR, but what I've played, I've absolutely loved. Feels very much like the future is here. :)
