Chrono Trigger OVA - Rare
Posted by MasJ @ Sat, 30 Oct 2010 | Message Boards

Here's something really special for Chrono Trigger fans everywhere. It's a pretty rare video that was created by Production I.G for the Japanese V-Jump Festival that took place on the 31st of July 1996.

The OVA shows a bunch of characters from the game (Chrono & Lucca) and you'll see them doing many things that actually do happen in the game.

You can download video at our movies and documentaries section.





Zelda Retrospective and Sonic Movie
Posted by MasJ @ Sat, 30 Oct 2010 | Message Boards

The weekend is here and it's time for some more interesting stuff that's worth watching! I've just added The Legend of Zelda - Full Retrospective and Sonic the Hedgehog (The Movie) to our movies and documentaries section.

Full Retrospective takes a look at Zelda from the beginning to where it is today. It's quite an interesting take on how The Legend of Zelda series evolved to what it is now.

Sonic the Hedgehog - The Movie is a must watch for Sonic fans anywhere. It was released on the same day as the Sega Dreamcast in the US. Featuring a storyline with Sonic, Tails and a bunch of other characters from the series, it's a pretty decent watch.

Find these and tons of other great video game movies at our Video Game Movies section.





Bye Bye Shady Ads
Posted by MasJ @ Sat, 30 Oct 2010 | Message Boards

Our users have for a long while complained about random shady ads that might show up on the site now and then. Shady products, ads with music, or annoying flashing banners. From now on, no more uglies! We've always kept all our downloads clean and well, we'd rather have the site clean as well!

The reason these ads would sometimes show up earlier was that we work with multiple ad agencies and most of them didn't provide us with any kind of interface to filter the bad stuff. We had to manually find the offending ad, and then email our advertisers to ask them to take it off rotation for us. (then one or two days later it would finally be taken down..) Slow, and lame.

Of-course, we'd rather have the site free of ads or pop-unders but that wouldn't work to help us pay the bills these massive downloads generate.

But now I have good news! We recently started working with a new company and these guys are amazing! Their ads are fast loading and of a much higher quality (have you noticed ?). On top of that, they have a great filtering system which allows us to block bad ads quickly and effectively.

So here's to a better, cleaner and safer experience at emuparadise. We hope you enjoy your stay here! If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to comment on this post or send us an email!

Chasing Ghosts and The King of Kong (Documentaries)
Posted by MasJ @ Fri, 22 Oct 2010 | Message Boards

On the suggestion of one of our users (Ryuuzaki.. - thanks for the links!) I've added these two excellent documentaries to our movies and documentaries section. Chasing Ghosts is a documentary about the golden age of video games, yes, the times that days were spent at the arcade trying to beat those pesky high scores!

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters is also along the same lines. The documentary follows Steve Wiebe as he tries to take the world high score for the arcade game Donkey Kong from reigning champion Billy Mitchell.

Check 'em both out at our brand new (and very awesome) Video Game Movies & Documentaries section.
