Can somebody please tell me the draw to this emulator for anybody who doesn't naively speak Japanese?

 

I actually tested about 200-300 games for this system at one point and it was going to be included in my Xtras sets, but in the end I totally decided against it. I couldn't figure out any benefit from it whatsoever. I will fully admit that for the time it came out it would have been an awesome system to own, but with the perfect ability to replicate these arcade games on CoinOPS and sometimes FBA-L, why would somebody go to the trouble for this. Granted, there are some interesting Japanese games that weren't available here, but they're either heavily burdened with "adult" content and/or completely unplayable by an engilsh-only speaking audience.

I don't speak Japaneese, but i think many action games are excelent, and it is not really important to speak Japanese :P

I think to all the PSX games you remove your pack because they are Japanese and i add to my pack because for action it is not really important to read text :P

I really like playing Castlevania. That game was ported to the PSX, but they changed the graphics and it runs at a slightly lower resolution.

 

There are some cool games on here RX, but I know what you're saying. This system was mainly know for its arcade-perfect ports and if you can emulate the arcade well already with CoinOps and FBL, then it becomes redundant in some respects. This said, there are a number of unique games to the system, as noted above, which make it still desirable.

 

Good to see your back around. Hope you are doing well! :P
