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

Seems to be getting lucky with the local retro pick ups. :lol:

Discovering a comicbook shop that has a retro game selection at fair prices helped. Guess I'll be having regular retro pick ups again. :)

For now, I finally own a zapper! £10. Thunderbirds Collection comic, 20p.

Re: Mega Drive Mini

Thought I'd bump this in anticipation of it's release this week. By all accounts reviews are excellent. But, have to admit in having a little cold feet about buying in the last couple of weeks. With the excellent Sega collection on 360, with emulators on my modded original xbox with older games...r...

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

Was feeling down today, so used a gifted £20 to spoil myself. Atari Flashback Classics Vol 1 (XBONE)- £8 Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series (XBone)- £10 (Since Telltale's Games are in a funny place of limbo right now) Continued with my day, and ooo, are those Mega Drive games I see?

Re: Favourite Resident Evil?

Shamefully, the only RE game I've ever beaten and completed was Darkside Chronicles on Wii since I love lightgun games. Never got on with the tank controls of the original trilogy, but RE4 has been on my shameful "To Play" list forever since they do away with those controls and it loved so greatly....

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

There was an extra reveal on the Japanese Direct, Dragon Quest 1, 2 and 3 are coming to Switch on the 21st. Japanese eShop only, but what's interesting is they will include an English language option. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/09/japanese_releases_of_dragon_quest_i_ii_and_iii_on_switch_...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I'm not sure I need a third copy of Xenoblade, but a chance to replay it in HD is tempting. It's not like cheap copies of the earlier versions are easy to find either. Looks to more than just a HD polish, as that area in the final shot of the trailer is not in the Wii or 3DS versions, rather its a ...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

It was a pretty solid Direct. Super stoked for Xenoblade Chronicles, which actually looks to be a remake of sorts as the final shot in the trailer was an area that was cut from the final release (But still existed on the Wii disc's data) so thats a good reason for me to triple dip. XD

Re: PS3 - retro??

Finally got GTA 5 working. It's brilliant! I know, I'm six years late. Jesus the disc is noisy though. Tempted just to download it for £6 as it's on sale. That would be silent, right? Yup, downloads are often silent. Discs tend to be noisy sometimes (Though most current gen systems tend to be more ...

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

Apparently debit and credit cards will no longer be available to use on the Euro eshops for 3DS and Wii U after tonight. On the console anyway. If you wanna buy games for either in the future, you have to buy games or add to your balance via the website. Top up cards/codes should be fine as well.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

After beating Revenge I went straight to ebay and look up 3, the price it goes for is crazy so not sure I will end up getting that one. Shadow dancer is on the watch list though so will hopefully pick that up soon. Ranger X looks interesting so I'll add that to the list too Believe Shinobi 3 is on ...

Trailer. Includes your typical features (Screen options, rewind, etc.), Gameboy, SNES and MD versions (No Capcom's Aladdin) and a trade show version of Aladdin, and other extras.

This feels like something they could very easily screw up.
Apparently its by the same guys that did The Disney Afternoon collection, so it probably will be just fine.
