Re: Coronavirus

I hit post, but hadn't finished :roll: Looks like some places (Belgium, Greece, Spain) cases are rising and lockdown measures are coming back in. We're certainly a long way from what I consider dark days in April and May when the daily death figure was floating around the 1000 mark for a few weeks. ...

If pre orders have gone well, either their expectations were low or there are a lot of villages paying generous salaries to their idiots

Re: Game Gear Micro Coming

I would have loved a Classic Game Gear - slimmed down a bit, modern screen, good battery, inbuilt library of GG and Master System games.

I guess I'll just stick to.my modded PSPs and Vitas!

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 ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

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...
