I'll use this dbl post to say I actually saw one of these in a bar when I was in Gdansk in Poland a few weeks ago. I thought it was a playstation mini (it didn't say funstation ont the top) until I popped the top open and saw the famicom cart port

I've got an ebay alert set up for Polystation or Funstation in video games, hope one pops up and for cheap

Retroarch is working on a auto-translation for games:

https://kotaku.com/emulator-can-now-use-machine-learning-to-translate-game-1837593565

It isn't very good at translating now but this is gonna be really cool as it gets better. One of those ideas where as soon as someone does it it seems crazy that nobody thought about it before hah

This just appeared:


Always been interesting in what the ZX Spectrum was like, but don't really know anything about it. I watched the entirety of her 100 best Megadrive/Genesis youtube that was a similar length and found the whole thing compelling.

Depends what you think the obvious ones are! Most of my Saturn recommendations would be the first-party arcade translations which I assume are obvious.

Guardian Heroes is possibly a lesser-known one to check out.

No! But watching this video I really like it, so I'll add. But yeah Daria RPGs is still really good, a shame she hasn't had much time to post lately.

Another couple really good ones are RPGBirdy and Hungry Goriya

I wish Super Derek would sort of stop the Weekly JRPG updates and just stick to the reviews which are where he's strongest. Then again I can just not watch them! The latest one he did on Star Ocean 2 had me buying the PSP version stat... I'm a sucker.

Did you ever play Overblood? I don't know if I'd say it's good but it's kind of endearing, and it seems like they made an effort with the story even though the graphics are pretty bad. I have a vivid memory of a puzzle crushing me to death because I didn't bother thinking about what might happen if I just yanked out the anti grav unit without turning it off first or something. At the time it got me super pissed off at first, which gradually became me laughing about it because it was actually pretty obvious. If you had me play the game blind and told me it was a modern parody of PSX survival horror I think I'd be fooled for a bit.
