It does but at 2x or 3x it's normal speed.Tried a couple of ways to sort out the problem but it appears not to work ideally on Xbox emulators

Definitely worth playing though

Can you get any of the Capcom Classics Collection volume for playing onto your xBox ?
Right now, I am figuring you might enjoy playing the original Strider, present in vol. II., but it hardly fits in the "mindless blasting" category.
I'll add KotoR to that short list, if you had forget how good it is.

I agree with Virtua Cop being a nice game, and shooting from the PC with mouse clicks a treat. Though MAME drivers for this one do require some pretty seriously pumping CPU & GPU chips. If you're not completely happy owning a wii and a xbox, may be you could do with a PS1, real or emulated.

looking for xbox homebrew & emulator stuff visit "xboxisozone" (google it, to avoid problems I will not link to it direct they got some iso too )
They also have a site for Dremacast and one for Gamecube(new)

Some of you have strange ideas of what blowing the crap out of stuff means...

"Blowing the crap out of stuff" = "Blowing Stuff Up" (with guns, bombs etc.)

Rampage? Carmeggeddon? Dungeon Fighter? Killer Instinct?!?

No!

As for Worms, Lemmings, not action oriented enough

Blast Corps is a great suggestion, I love that game back in the day, especially with the games drought on the N64 at the time.

Some other good suggestions too, will take a look

Oh and as for GTA, never been a fan, just find them a tad boring, too open ended.

Keep em coming

If you ask'd me, Blast Corps is colorful but rather blocky and the framerate jittery, same with other N64 games, and won't look very nice on a big display. Starfox 64 may be salvaged from the lot, but barely.

And I can't imagine the SNES suddenly turning into an arcadish console.
What kind of games could fit in from it, can someone explain ?

What about Ghost Recon, and similar infiltration titles ?
And for the obvious : Metal Slug series

1) I never mentioned the size of my display, just talk about decent games where you shoot stuff up.

2) SNES has tonnes of arcade style games.

3) Ghost Recon is far too tactical, you cannot "run around blowing stuff up".

4) Metal Slug, yes.

Mercenaries 2: World In Flames

Quote:
In some respects, Mercenaries 2: World In Flames isn't perfect and it isn't entirely pretty, but when it comes to blowing up stuff alone or with a friend, it gets the job done. If you need to relieve stress, spend some time in this fictitious Venezuela


I never played the game, so don't know if its any good

Loaded for the PSX. I like this one more than Re-Loaded and surely you can blow the shit out of stuff in it

Also on the PlayStation theme may I recommend Silent Bomber. Basically a top-down blast-everything-that-moves kind of game but instead of shooting things you have to lay bombs and then manually detonate them. A bit different and great fun, a very under-rated little game.

Yes!

Loaded is a great blaster! Well done sir I used to have the demo on my Sega Saturn and used to love playing it.

Just checked Silent Bomber on youtube as well.
