Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Oh almost worth picking up at that price. Is hacking it to play backups (no really) fairly idiot proof or do I have to jump through hoops aplenty on websites more virus laden than that germ farm monkey from Outbreak to unlock it's potential?

Re: Master System must haves?

I've been snapping up cheap carts where I can find them. 2 games that are WAY more fun than they have any right to be are Teddy Boy & The Ninja. 2 perfect examples of why I love retro gaming, cheap as hell, no fancy gimmicks, just pure arcade fun.

Re: Toe Jam & Earl: Back in the Groove

Nope, my laptop is about 15 years old & is only ever used for word docs for work & swaping files between my portable harddrive & android devices.

Re: Master System must haves?

To compliment the games I got with it, I picked up a few more in that shop in Manchester that's closing down, managed to get Speedball 1 & 2 & have change of a fiver! Man there's a LOT of flickery platform games on this thing! Most of the best games I've got seem to be valiant attempts to replicate ...

Re: Master System must haves?

These are all great suggestions, cheers. The wife's picked it up for me today & sent a pic, it looks like whoever owned it before was a HUGE platformer fan, there's Cool Spot, Sonic 2, Castle of Illusion & about half a dozen other platformers. Should keep me going for a bit while I look for some of ...

Wanted: Atari 2600 Soccer games

Hello, a bit of a long shot, but any of you folk have any of the cr@p Atari 2600 Soccer games in your collections taking up space? Ideally ones that work, but have scuffed up ripped/torn labels, I'm looking to relabel them with homemade labels. I've not got much in the way of swaps ( a copy of Starm...

Re: Is the Wii U still worth getting in 2019?

It's the most modern console I own. There are some things it does exceptionally well, but it never seemed to get the love or support it deserved. As soon as the Switch was announced, it seemed to be dead in the water. As well as the first party games, it works great for the lego games, when I'm play...

Re: Today

People who abbreviate "etcetera" as "ect" instead of "etc".

I didn't realise this was a thing until recently, but a quick search on Twitter reveals there are THOUSANDS of people doing it.

I know there's a lot more in the world to be angry about, but this has pushed me over the edge.
