No joke. Things like mod chips, Rheas/Phoebes, and Hacktion Replays are the future of that console.

I vaguely remember hearing something about MKR having some lost source code that had to be rewritten when it was localized. Anybody know if there was any significant differences between the US and JP versions?

When I started looking into getting games for my Saturn a friend gave me when he got his Xbox, the only game I could afford was Daytona USA. I want Guardian Heroes and the D&D Collection so bad, but I just can't afford it. I can emulate both but it's just not the same.

I can't wait for a more user-friendly, widely available optical drive replacement.

Those two aren't terribly expensive to play if you have some modern hardware.

I paid attention to the 360 XBL sales and grabbed a handful of solid Saturn games - D&D, Guardian Heroes, NiGHTs, Radiant Silvergun - for a couple of bucks each over the past few years. They're all backwards compatible on X1, too.

So you can still get these today? I only have a 360, and never had usable internet while those arcade titles were coming out. I don't see myself getting a XB1 soon.

I wonder if there's a good LP of Panzer Dragoon Saga out there I can watch...

Yes.

Fire up that 360 and start buying them on Xbox Live. Massive savings are to be had if it doesn't bother you to own digital copies.

Dungeons and Dragons - $14.99
Guardian Heroes - $4.99
NiGHTS - $9.99
Radiant Silvergun - $14.99

They all have enhanced graphics, some have different modes, and D&D is in full English.

I have been eyeing the DnD collection on Jap PS3 for a while, I may go for it. The Gaurdian heroes at $5 is hard to beat though.

Got a scart cable and tried out this convertor https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00988GM ... Mwebp_QL65

Picture looks awesome on my Samsung 4k but there is a slight lag. Just seems to really affect me a bit on shmups, every other genre is good enough. Oh well. Not bad for the price but I need something a little better in the future.

Edit. After switching the tv to gaming mode the slight lag is barely recognizable. Good convertor/upscaler on a budget.
