Nope, I meant ps3 which also has a more affordable standard edition.

I just played through Shadow Over Mystara (credit feeding) and was pretty impressed overall with the port. This is one of those games that hasn't ever worked well on MAME for me, so I am happy to see it running relatively smoothly on the 360. I don't have the Saturn port to compare it to that, but it seems the default visual filters and settings help it look good in HD.

This game is HARD to even consider 1cc'ing unless you exploit a bug or two. Is there anyone here who considers themselves a bit of an expert?

I hope to play Tower of Doom tomorrow.

Oh, and fast - there is a button remap option (at least in the 360 port), so I think it's likely there would be one on the Wii U.

Dave, seems like a lot of games give you a tough time in MAME...

not really. Basically stuff from late 90s and newer is a crapshoot on my rig, which is fine. Everything earlier usually runs great.

The D&D games, in most MAME sets, are poorly emulated. Not enough to stop people from enjoying it, but enough to irk those who played the original.

Good to know about the remapping DSH, guess I will be buying it tonight.

As for getting good at it, watch this guys videos:

Tower of Doom might be a letdown for you Dave, since you have less attack options and the game is overall shorter. It's still a lot of fun, though, and personally I prefer the way it handles the inventory (no need to juggle multiple rings).

Any word on PC version or am I going to have to head on over to my WiiU and buy it?
I'm still not sure whether I'm a kid or a squid now.
