https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CVJDY8Wpm8 a reminder that this is all the exposition you get out of God Hand
"you've arrived in town. here's some guys to ponch"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgl_HrxlUH4 also here's your soundtrack for walking through town ponching random thugs and Actual Demons
@theoutrider God Hand more like Good Hand
@theoutrider (I have never played God Hand but I want to)
@Nine it emulates very well nowadays if your machine can handle PS2 emulation!
@theoutrider nOPE NEVERMIND £50 FUCKING QUID
@Nine what the SHIT
I got my copy in like 2011 for £4 or sommat
@theoutrider okay I mnaanged to find a copy for like, £20 on ebay, but amazon has only 3 copies for like £48, and one fucko on ebay is selling their used copy for £100 XD
@Nine ANYWAY it emulates well and you get widescreen and high res if you fancy out of it
@Nine "compatible on PS3" good luck finding a PS3 with PS2 hardware BC these days
@theoutrider right??? it was just like, the first gen of them wasn't it that had BC?
Because of the combination of BC causing issues and early, cheap build quality right?
@Nine nah, the BC was software only in the EU hardware and thus worse than in the first-run US consoles (which had the relevant PS2 hardware built in)
the issue is the same with both - lead-free solder + heat expansion/contraction/deformation of the mainboard would eventually cause the GPU's solder joints to break
(lead-free solder loses its flexibility a bit quicker than lead solder, so becomes more brittle and thus more susceptible to deformation)
@Nine this is why you could often fix a RROD/YLOD by putting the console in the oven for a while or taking the heat sink off and just letting it run hot while increasing pressure on the heatsink clamps (e.g. by adding washers between the clamp+mainboard)
@Nine effectively softening the solder again so it reforms the broken connections
@theoutrider Ah yeah I forgot about the whole "baking your console" shit, ahahah. like I'm guessing they actually figured out what the issue was, but couldn't/wouldn't crack open the case to try a less uh... "nuclear option"?, so figured they'd just pop it in the oven for a little bit and just be super careful about the temp?
@Nine yeah pretty much, it was the fix for people who weren't confident with opening their console and dicking around with clamps and heatsinks
@theoutrider so, basically, people like me.
though I'd have to basically do it liek it was a level in cooking mama.
*takes cooked ps3 out of oven* "Wau! Even better than Mama!"
