    Nintendo Switch

    How can you have forgotten? You wouldn’t shut up about that fact back in the day!

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Zelda 2 is alright, just an easy target for tedious snorts. The first two games just weren't that accessible. Reading the manual and REALLY wanting to play the entire series helps.

    Dead Space

    Dead Space is easily one of my all time favourite games. Now I've got to dig out my Xbox 360!

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    I like this game a lot, but every time the Koopas do their dance to the music I die a little inside!
  6. About to head to Ridley for the millionth time. God this game is going to join a few other SNES titles as a yearly play though game.

    Ah yeah, I do notice input lag. I wish I didn't!

    If there's input lag and people notice it, it's a problem. Just because some people don't pick up on it doesn't make it go away! I'm hoping I don't perceive it during play. I'm collecting my copy at lunchtime and I'm hopeful.

    As an aside, I got the overlay for my OSSC remote, along with a much better NTSC SNES RGB cable which gives me a super clean 3x and 5x image with my Super Famicom.

    My assistant @SeanR has answered the where. As as for ease of use. It’s easy, it sits between a hdmi port on your TV and an RGB console source. The remote is essential really for enabling line doubling modes. Its best for 240p consoles, to up to be N64. 5x line mode is pretty awesome if your TV supports it. It’s fine on 480p sources too, but line doubling isn’t quite as nice. PS2 looks crap if you try to deinterlace 480i. In fact deinterlacing anything looks crap.

    Gamecube and PS2, basically anything 480i/p isn't that great on the OSSC. Not because of the picture, but no display I have will produce the pillarboxed 4:3 view that I can get with the SNES and N64. Still, an excuse to use the cable I paid £50 for which is now worth crazy money! I also found a Saurian RGB cable in my cache of retro goodness. Loving Super Mario 64!

    On TV N64 looks a bit crap, but 5x mode is still nice.

    It arrived today and thankfully 5x mode works find on my TV. Coincidentally, I blew my US power supply hooking everything up, unrelated to the OSSC of course! So I grabbed my Super Famicom and all is good. I think my RGB cable isn't great, because the picture was over bright, but I can fix that.
