Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Bloody stopped working - switches on but then goes off when the usb is in. Works fine when the usb isn't in. Will have to shift everything over to a different USB and hope that works, or get a powered USB hub although I really don't want to spend any money :/ the whole point was to do it with minimu...

Coronavirus

What the actual censored is happening? Is anyone stuck at home self isolated? I'm working from home - we're taking it in turns, although I can see a point soon where the government starts forcing people to stay at home and off the streets unless it's an emergency. And the kids will be off school so ...

Cane and Rinse recently did a good podcast on the Amiga, worth a listen.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Finally modded my PS mini. Put on a couple of PS games but to be honest i think the Playstation library has dated quite badly and there's nothing there i really want to play (I'm not an RPG fan at all). It was a bit of a pain shuttling bewteen the PS and the laptop, but nothing too difficult. The ma...

Best DS in 2019?

Now that I've ticked off the Vita and the PS3, my voyage into older systems picked up at a good price continues.... Which DS should I be looking at second hand? I did have an original DS way back when it was released, I'd prefer something newer and less bulky. I haven't kept up to date with the DS t...

Re: Subscription help

Would be nice if the company notified me when a recurring subscription payment is going out. I know it's not mega bucks but an email or text would be nice.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Anyone going to buy the SNES controller? Think I will. I have the nes 8bitdo but it's a bit hit and miss, and the R button is broke since I dropped it. Gonna try and fix it, and it still works ok for the nes online.

Nice to see the SNES stuff on at last. Any coincidence that in the Retro Gamer calendar September is SNES?!

Re: 2019/2020 Football season chat

Friendly? It's a game between the winner of the European cup and the winner of the uefa cup. Hardly a friendly.
