Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Finally unwrapped my Switch after buying it in Black Friday Sale with Mario Odyssey last November (Yes, November 2017), because my fiance got me Mario Kart and Skyrim for Christmas. I didn't expect any Switch games, and kinda hoped she wouldn't buy Mario Kart as I bought it for Wii U on it's release...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I got Shinobi X for the Saturn again, first time since my childhood. Now, I have an issue. Hopefully someone with the game can clarify. When I had the game as a child, the game would often freeze at the title screen after I pressed start. I assumed this was maybe down to my copy being dodgy or maybe...

Here's the New/Sealed Saturn find from a local Charity Shop http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r191/samhain81/af131b0f-9a2d-4802-9f1f-3019b8fcc76b.jpg~original http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r191/samhain81/b53fea6c-e139-410e-8458-19510132f462.jpg~original http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r191/...

Well I struck gold pretty much Picked up a brand new & sealed Sega Saturn Console MK2 While the box is a little dented on one side, all the innards are still wrapped and sealed in their bags; controller, cables, manuals all sealed etc... Even the demo disc that came with the Saturn is still shrink w...

Re: Streets of Rage 4 officially announced!!!

Definitely excited to play a new SOR , but I'm not liking the new art direction. Doesn't fit the atmosphere of a SOR game. Could be great, could be a hot mess of a sequel. Will keep an eye out.

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Probably something that I never had as a child, and dont currently collect for, so probably Turbo Grafx/PC Engine or something would be ideal.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Just cracked open my 8 year old copy of Resonance of Fate for the first time, after having heard of the HD Remaster that's on it's way.

Wait, is it HD Remaster? HHD ? HD*2?

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

All magazines do this don't they? As do Sky and other companies. It's a standard promotional tactic I'm afraid to get new people in - yes some will unsubscribe when they get their gift, but a fair few won't of course. Oh and just so I'm clear - you're cancelling your subscription because you haven'...

Baku Baku Animal - A great spin on the 'connect 3 or more of the same' puzzler. Lovely animal animations to keep the game fresh and entertaining on each play.

RE: Free Subscription Incentives

This may just bug me, but as a longtime subscriber of the magazine for about 8 years now, who subscribed when there was no subsidized offer or promotion, I just can't accept the latest promotional offer. Over the years pricing offers like £1 for 3 months subscription, or £3 for 3 months subscription...

Re: would anyone be up for a secret santa?

I don't venture these forums much at the moment due to my current studies, but I always make the appearance for Secret Santa, so count me in, if it comes to.

Re: SNES Mini Announced

I'm just trolling all of the scummy scalpers, by using some disposable ebay accounts and buying them all up just to never pay them. Giving them some false joy of a purchase only to end up with hassle of relisting items etc, will put a lovely smile on my face. :D For people who pay over the odds for ...
