Re: games/consoles rescued from the bin, rubbish/garbage tip

Out of curiosity were you raking through bins?

I once found a couple of N64 games in the street. As close as I have been

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

I really want to get a Wii U it's the only current console that has titles appealing to me.

My only worries are that as soon as I buy one there will be a price drop (knowing my luck) plus the fact the NX is on the horizon.

Re: Dino Dini making a new Kick Off Game for PS4

Is it likely to be a physical release or a digital only affair?

Never a massive fan. Did have Super Kick Off on Game Gear though and used to love the fact that if you chose a different language you got teams from that area!

Re: Most unreliable retro console

NES and Game Gear as mentioned. Sometimes been able to eke some extra life out of the NES by taking it apart and cleaning it. Had a dodgy 32x or two and each time the cable inside had come loose; so a simple enough fix. Must have been lucky with the old Dreamcast as never had problems with them alwa...

Re: The system/console you feel most sentimental about

For me there are two. The Master System as my first console and the amazing platform games Alex Kidd, Sonic (always preferred it to the Mega Drive version) and ditto for Castle of Illusion.

Re: Pro Evo or FIFA?

Have the new Pro Evo and really enjoy it, haven't really got a preference for either to be honest, have had good times playing both.

At least they are better than my first footy game, world soccer on the Master System!
