Lego Batman Wii - Deleting individual saves?

Hi all, I can't figure this out at all, or find any useful information about it! I have 3 saved games in Lego Batman. I want to delete 2 of them. In the Wii menu Lego Batman shows as one block to delete copy or move. Can't find any options within the game, or in the manual. Anyone know a special but...

Retro Argos catalogues.

http://retromash.com/argos/ Really cool! I used to spend way too many hours flicking through these catalogues trying to figure out what to spend my £30 birthday money on lol. I've mainly been looking at old figures today, then it dawned on me about my main hobby of video game collecting :D Some of ...

Re: Command & Conquer

Red Alert is one of my favourite games ever! But only ever find myself playing skirmish (multiplayer) mode over and over. Never really been interested in missions. I like it when you drop an atom bomb and the characters shout "YET!!" PS1 version of Red Alert has a major lack of maps (12 in total?), ...

Best console names?

What are everyone's favourite console names? Ignoring the hardware and games, just solely the console name. My favourites have got to be the Dreamcast and PlayStation. They just sound really cool to me! And are clever names really, combining 2 words which relate to gaming. Honorable mention to the G...

Re: Where to buy Nintendo 3DS genuine stylus?

I think I read somewhere that the new 3DS tracks your eyes so it knows how to angle the 3D?
And if you wear glasses it can cause issues with the tracking.

I might have dreamt this though lol :lol:

Re: Where to buy Nintendo 3DS genuine stylus?

I have the original Nintendo 3DS (I think), in Aqua Blue. The box has 2011 Nintendo written on it. So looks like my only option is to buy a copy stylus then! Unless I buy a broken 3DS off ebay and hope it still has the original. Just not worth it though, will get a pack of those chrome extendable co...

Re: Where to buy Nintendo 3DS genuine stylus?

Thanks for replying, I had spotted similar but I don't think they are actually made by Nintendo? I think they are made by "Power A" and licensed by Nintendo. So I would automatically assume they would be inferior quality to the originals. In the photos, is that what the original stylus' look like? C...

Where to buy Nintendo 3DS genuine stylus?

Hi all I've recently got my first Nintendo 3DS (2nd hand) but the stylus isn't original and doesn't fit in the slot on the 3DS. I can't find anywhere online that sells genuine stylus'? Anyone know of anywhere please? I presume the only difference between geniune and copies is going to be the Nintend...

Re: Wii classic controller - Top middle button?

Found a game (by chance, wasn't actively looking) that does utilise the analogue shoulder buttons - WHEELSPIN. Although acceleration doesnt actually stop at a speed depending on the pressure, it just keeps accelerating but slower. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Wheelspin_Cover....

Re: Wii classic controller - Top middle button?

I am absolutely loving the Wii at the moment :D I think what put me off it for years is all the usual helmets that buy the standard "lets dance" and "wii fit" and rubbish common games like that. So it's just never impressed me or caught my eye when I've seen it around. Didn't realise how many hidden...

Wii classic controller - Top middle button?

Hiya I've recently acquired my first Wii and it came with one of these classic controllers. I've already searched Google but I can only find threads from like 2007/2008. Has anyone since discovered what the top middle button does? It moves catches inside these clip bits on the back, in case you didn...

Re: Fixing a dead Master System game cartridge?

I've got an electric multimeter at work I could borrow, but looking online it seems testing a capacitor whilst on a circuit is impossible, the readings will mean nothing. For £3 I'm just going to treat her to a replacement game off ebay I think. But yes a warning to others 600 grit sandpaper isn't f...

Re: Fixing a dead Master System game cartridge?

I'm feeling impatient about this so rather than buying a pen rubber I just used the 600 grit sand paper I have here in my DIY box. Hasn't sorted it. Wish I took photos before but all the gold pins were shiney apart from 1 of them. Now they are all less gold looking, but the 1 pin doesn't stand out a...

Re: Fixing a dead Master System game cartridge?

I've never even heard of that type of rubber! Maybe I was too poor to have one lol.
Will try some extra fine sandpaper I have at home. I think it's 600 grit but will check when I get home.


Bought it from here for a DIY job...
