Tate Mode Engaged!

I recently went to NYC for our November Team1upem 80s/90s hiphop night, and while I was there Jaybaam and I hit the dump and we found this Dell Monitor that had multiple video inputs, one of which being S-video and I thought perfect for Tate mode shmups. I hooked it up to my Saturn and it works beautifully. I cant wait to hook it up to some other systems like the dreamcast and playstation to see how it runs.
