Re: Auction Ended! CD32 Brian The Lion Disc Only Value

The Lotus games were quite desirable back then so people maybe knew them better. I loved them esp Lotus 3.

Re: Building Retro Game Console - Advice Needed

A good option is to take a non working handheld apart and see how the controller functions are integrated into the handheld console.

Re: Will Nintendo ever regain top spot?

Nintendo can survive as they keep their own corner of the market with Mario, Zelda et al and not sell their most important licences to Sony or Microsoft. I can't see them doomed like Sega (who weren't really doomed per se, they just decided to quit the console market and continue to develop video ga...

Re: retro console discoveries

The only real time I've wanted other console was through curiosity, never really that I missed 1 that I didn't own.

The only one I did kind of regret was buying a PS1 (like the majority) instead of a Sega Saturn. Not that I didn't enjoy the PS1 I just wished I got the Saturn instead.

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

I bought PS2 high school musical for the princely sum of 5p. I'm not into these games and only bought it to test singstar microphones are working. It was nice to hand over 2 2p coins and 1 1p. Just a little heads up - Colchester cash converters are knocking out ps2 and xbox original games for prices...

Re: Maplins ZX Spectrum !

It is a nice idea and I do see the point of it as fully working Spectrums are not exactly cheap these days - esp on ebay...

My main gripe is that you play the same games on a half decent pc or a softmodded Xbox...

BHS has done some cool stuff over the years (I've bought a few things from there in the past) but it just hasn't evolved in the last few years which is a shame...

Re: What game/s do you think got unfairly reviewed?

Another game was the teletext review reviewing Mega drive mortal kombat - they gave it 64%... And what happened? It became one of the best and well known fighting games. Obviously a reviewer who didn't have a clue about fighting games (and was an absolute muppet)... Another one was a sega magazine w...

Re: Charity Shops

Today I got a brand new sealed copy of Destiny for the 360 for pop and a red DS Lite with charger and what looked like a game inserted but turned out to be an R4 with a 4gb micro sd! £5. Amazes how often people seem to report finding sealed copies of fairly recent games in charity shops! I wonder h...
