BUST-A-MOVE ok gameplay but loads of mad fucking noises and weird music

I was trying to enrage my wife the other day by going "oom wap oom oom wap" to remind her that she's a fucking freak for having finished Bust a Move 2 the freak. She has no interest in games at all but has bate Bust a Move 2.

I adore the sound design in that game.

The big loud noise it makes in Bust-a-Move 2 every time you fire one of those bubble things, I don't remember what anything in the game is called, is that called Busting a Move, anyway, that, that noise made my dad want to murder me as a child. "That noise!" he'd cry. Otherwise heartily recommended

Consider yourself in the modern parlance an influencer, Madhair. I've bought one of these and am setting about loading up the modding settings this evening. I agree that the base unit is actually quite lovely and the controllers are fabulous.

I saw on Twitter he's got it running, it's great and has the cover art and everything. Mighty tempting.

Stand by for my definitive review of Mary-Kate and Ashley: Magical Mystery Mall. Want to spend a bit more time with this masterpiece.

Going beyond games that are actually good, what about "Overboard" that's something I think of as very PS1 era thing you played on a demo disc and kind of had fun with but it was so far down the list of priorities you never bought it.


Also Ape Escape, that was genuinely good. I know you don't need any more suggestions though.

God I'd love to buy that thing you've made up straight out of the box though. I'd pay good money for it.

You can't play Ape Escape on a Playstation Classic, it needs the dual analog sticks.

I bet they were planning to do a follow device with dual shocks, possibly based on the PSone, until they saw how much this device has been slated, and how quickly they dropped in price.

You can hook up a Dualshock 3 or 4 and it will work.

Incidentally I got the memstick and hacked mine successfully. Spent last night on Future Cop and Ghost in the Shell, both amazing.

Doesn't connecting separate controllers negate one of the selling point of the device; the controllers it comes with are great?

I should have known as soon as I posted that, as the USB ports would allow it. Probably with a bit of trickery you could wire up an Alexa and play with voice.

What version are you running? The newest version seems to demand using a browser for adding files whereas the videos for the older ones look like you can just drag and drop, which seems easier.

The one that needs the browser. It's inelegant but automatically sorts out boxart and info for me, so it's a win.

(I'm gonna publish a fairly exhaustive guide to getting this running over on Retronauts tonight, so maybe keep an eye on that)

Mary-Kate and Ashley Magical Mystery Mall is bull shit. I put loads of effort into my music video and the producer came back with ‘needs more practice’, well, he can shove his fucking music video up his fucking arse. And apparently the photos I took at the fashion show weren’t good enough either. In fact the only part of the game I did well at is the bit where you have to serve pizza. Minimum wage drudgery. I can only assume whoever recommended this was making a joke of some kind. Very surprising and disappointing outcome.

Had a quick go on One. I’d never heard of it so didn’t know what to expect. I like how you press start and immediately you’re having rockets shot at you. If it had been made now you’d spend the first four hours learning how to pick up sacks or something. Anyway half the time you can’t see what’s going on. Great game.

Great article, very useful for passing the time as I ended up clothes shopping on a Tuesday evening.

Tell me this, are there any issues with games that have a rake of .bin files (like X-Men: Children of the Atom)? Did you encounter any?

I've had no probs. You mean like (Track01) etc? Just select the lot.

"I made a mistake".  One was great, think I very nearly finished it back in the day, but not quite...

Have filled mine with OPSM demos and Music 2000 to try and recreate a metal tune that my brother's band's guitarist once recorded that I only have on tape.

Feels like I'm not doing it right. Must put a ISS Pro 2 on it for balance.

Fluid was wicked at the time, it was a music creation tool but with a bit of a game built in to it, where you searched for musical notes under the ocean, whilst playing as a dolphin. Probably looks slightly less impressive these days.
