Cute, but the thing looks even smaller than the Gameboy Micro.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I'm for the most part a docked Switch player but having the option to go handheld and do Animal Crossing daily chores, especially as I got it digitally, has made a whole lot of difference. I can just slot the Switch out, quickly do daily chores like money trees, whatever the Nook kids are selling, f...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

A trio of free games when you own 1 of 5 games for 1 day only (Even if you don't own any of em, Mana Spark is 89p which isnt bad for 4 games.)

Re: Thinking about getting an snes, or perhaps an nes?

Its interesting, its become harder to recommend pure retro gaming like this than back in 2007 when I took a more serious stab at it, and that was thanks to the ease of the Virtual Console. :lol: For me, it was a bootleg emulator disc on eBay. I was living on £60 a week Jobseeker's Allowance at the ...

Re: Thinking about getting an snes, or perhaps an nes?

Probably a lot of things to consider if you're going full on original models. For starters, back in those days most of our games ran slower thanks to 50Hz. If you've been familiarising yourself with NES/SNES on stuff like the Switch which use the 60Hz versions, you might be shocked to find how slow...

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

[*] Oh - it's not the SNES Aladdin on there then? The reason I avoided it was because I thought it wasn't the Megadrive one. :lol: To be honest I was irritated they're charging so much for a couple of roms on a disc in the first place, when it was first announced I assumed they'd be HD remasters, bu...

Re: Aladdin and Lion King being Remastered for Consoles

Even though I have Aladdin on the Mega Drive, And Lion King on the SNES I really want this! But I don't think it's gonna go cheaper than the $50 it's on sale for now sadly...which is two expensive in my mind. On the now defunct twice now ol' Aussie XBOX Forum I put together some pictures of this ga...

Re: What are you currently playing?

FINALLY got me an up to date phone, so I've been playing tons of Pokemon Go and various free to play retro SEGA games like Sopnic 1+2, Crazy Taxi, etc.

Speaking of which, could anyone recommend me a good Bluetooth controller that works well with these SEGA Forever games?
