Re: All about the handhelds

On DS I have 5 games; Pic Pic (think I bought that off you Darran), The world ends with you, Pokemon Silver & Gold and Ketsui. I might get a few others sooner or later; the 2DS got me right back into Nintendo handhelds; but only just! Dare I say, the most fun I've had on a recent handheld is on the ...

Re: My PS3 is dying

I'd be in the camp to replace it, I like my PS4, but I also like my PS3. Not about to leave the games I've got on the system behind, and I still play PS3 now, more than my PS4 =/

Re: Where does "Retro" end?

Well, this starts to encroach on technology too; so GBC, NGP and GBA are old, in their visual styles and hardware power. Dreamcast is a little more tricky, but it's unfair to say it's retro, but then it is old. The DC can connect to the internet, and still plays a supported medium (CDs ) - a bit of...

Re: Where does "Retro" end?

For me, N64/PS1 era are retro. everything after is not. Again, what about the likes of Gameboy Color, Neo geo pocket, Dreamcast, and GBA. Well, this starts to encroach on technology too; so GBC, NGP and GBA are old, in their visual styles and hardware power. Dreamcast is a little more tricky, but i...

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

Still adding to my PS3 collection (after halving it this year!); but nothing crazy, just a new copy of Lego Harry Potter years 1-4, in that collectors edition format. Been after this one, in good condition for ages, and offered £40 to a seller for it on ebay who accepted :) I think £40 is my limit o...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

When listing an item on ebay as an auction, and seemingly everyone asks if you will sell the item for a buy it now price far below the average. ... I'm selling an N64 bundle, nothing special but most of the good stuff, all games are boxed, complete in good condition. I totalled it up, I think it's w...

Re: Nintendo releasing a new NES !

Slapped mine on the shelf, nice thing, more a of a novelty tho. In fairness I've had other things taking my attention, but still only really gave it 30 minutes. The short controller cable was a major blow, my living room tv is big, and I don't want to be 1m away from it. Also I forgot how poor the N...

Re: Owning games for consoles you don't own and ltd box sets

no games for systems I don't own except PS1, but I play them on PS2/3 so, kinda doesn't count.

As for limited editions, they take up too much room, so I only keep lt editions that are around standard dvd/blu ray size. Exceptions are tanko no tatsujin, and Fallout 3.

Also got the second pad from Game. I predict they are going to be scarce soon.
Game cancelled my controller order, a little pissed off to say the least.

Re: Battery Cover for XBox 360 controller

Think i do, but all my stuff is in boxes.

Lots of controllers died over the years, but I always kept the battery covers xD
