    How To Update RetroArch - LaunchBox Tutorial

    Thanks for this! It's such a pain setting everything up from scratch. This is my new go-to for updating RetroArch. Cheers!

    The History of Mario Brothers arcade documentary

    Lots of fond memories of this one. They had it at my family's favorite Chinese restaurant growing up. I love the thoughtful and creative game design of the era. Thanks for putting this together. Cheers!

    The history of Altered Beast arcade game

    Nostalgia, humor, knowledge, history "I love it!" My first go at this game was on the SEGA at a buddies house. To this day my close friends are still known to say "Rise from your grave" in their closest impersonation. The box art was indeed legit. It made it an easy choice browsing the games at the video rental store. Thanks for this. Cheers!

    The History of Final Fight arcade documentary

    Congrats on the 300 game, that's no small feat. I'm loving the format of these videos! I love the beat em up genre. Thanks for sharing this. Cheers!

    The history of Robocop arcade documentary

    Excellent video! Thank you for sharing this. I very much enjoyed it and it was great getting some history and a taste of all of the versions in a 10 minute bite sized chunk. I'm very inspired to fire up the game and revisit the movie =). P.S. Robocop definitely did some meth before going on patrol

    Best emulator for each system?

    I think if you are going to list RetroArch, you should mention what platforms you emulate with it and which core you use to do so. That would be extremely helpful and I think it would be more in line with the OP's original hopes for discussion. Cheers!

    Fighting games roms list

    If you utilize LaunchBox, you can sort your games by Genre to find what you are looking for! I'm a big fan of those genres too. Cheers!

    Hardest Beat'em'up ever?

    I guess Battletoads won. This is one of my favorite genres and I'm always looking for new recommendations. If you really want to increase the difficulty of Battletoads though, play with a small child that thinks its fun to pummel his partner...

    New Lifetime Supporter needs help :)

    @straydawg If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend you check out LaunchBox for a "Bling" front end (Especially the Big Box feature). It integrates very well with RetroArch and with MAME rom sets. I agree completely with what @FlightRisk said above. Feel free to reply or send me a message if you have questions or need help. Cheers!

    EmuMovies Front End Poll '16

    Hello everyone! First post! I have been using LaunchBox for a few years now. More specifically, I stream Big Box from my main PC to my Shield TV in my living room. I have tweaked it out to be more kid and wife friendly and it works great! I've only scratched the surface with visual customizations, but it looks great even stock. Cheers!
