Re: Selling sealed Radiant Silvergun - looking for advice

Definitely offer international shipping if you can. I'd say 75% of the games and other stuff I sell gets sent abroad. People seem to pay more (even taking international shipping into consideration) for collectibles and games than they do here in the UK. Almost all of the high value games I have sold...

Re: What are you currently playing?

^^^ Sounds great. The Tales series has probably become my top JRPG series in recent years. Final Fantasy has disappeared up it's own arse as far as I'm concerned and there really isn't much else outside of the totally crazy Nippon Ichi and Gust stuff that makes me want to see the plot through to the...

Re: Save our forum!

I wanted to copy and paste my Mindfighter book review to text to a friend, to lazy to type out again. Seems strange the forum being hidden, surely people will registering fake usernames to view a locked forum. When I was active there was about 90 members David Brent, Steve Davis, Mr Burns and Krust...

Re: Save our forum!

Just viewing Retro Canteen and I can’t see the forums looks like I’ve been banned for some reason. It's just locked to anybody that isn't signed up as a member, Shin.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Tales of Beseria still 90 hours😧 I know I let the OS4 running when I did other things, but damn! Even better then my previous favourite Xillia. The only problem I had with Xillia was nobody really died but damn they murder everyone on this one. Previously defeated bosses return with Eyes or arms mi...

Re: What are you currently playing?

This afternoon I was playing the absolutely superb Streets of Rage Remake for the first time in ages. Feel kind of bad talking it up because I know it was pulled and I'm not sure how easy it is for people who haven't already got it to acquire it these days. Anyway, my USB Saturn pad broke years ago ...

Re: Save our forum!

I'll be straight up and say that when this forum adopted its new rules, I decided (and said) that I would leave and not come back as I didn't agree with it. That said, I guess I lied (as Arnie famously says to Sully in Commando!) because I check the games section on here a couple of times a week of ...

Re: Streets of Rage 2 - Runs Slow WTF?

I have switch-modified Mega Drive and it's great. Many games will change between the English and Japanese versions using the region switch though this obviously doesn't work on games like Streets of Rage 3 which were intentionally censored/altered for the West.

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

Ouch, can't believe Gamecube games are valued that high. Had I known you were after this game, i would have sold you my copy of Twin Snakes for £41, cos what are old forum frenemies for eh?! Yeah, GC games have been expensive for years. I had Twin Snakes once upon a time and paid a high price (£30+...

Re: Buying CD's

I think Amazon does something similar, too. Yeah it's quite cool because you can get at your music immediately while also eventually getting a proper CD. As I said above, it's sometimes (bizarrely!) possible to get this combo cheaper on Amazon than buying the download version on its own. Rip lots o...

Re: Buying CD's

When I buy music which isn't very often, I definitely buy CDs (not CD's though ;-) ). I rip at higher audio quality than you get from downloads too. Same. I rip them as .wma with Media Player, the only issue being that my Android phone doesn't support the file and auto-converts it to something else...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Shop to net are cheap I get most of my Vita games from them. I saw both those games your after in CEX Ultimate MvC3 was cheap and I’ve yet to see a Vita game they charge more than £20 for I'll have to have a look when I next can then. Only issue for me is that the CEX is a pain to get to in the tow...

Re: Video/Computer Game History Books

Also checking out the Playstation Anthology currently, this book looks rather gorgeous Got a link to that one? Only ever had the RG bookazine thing when it comes to Playstation "books" but I got rid since most of the articles were of no interest to me or covered games that I'd heard way too much ab...

Re: MAME - what do you use?

I was always really rubbish at downloading MAME and roms, living in concern of downloading something from a dodgy source and having to deal with viruses etc. so the version I have is pretty ancient now. Any recommendations on decent controllers to use with MAME on a PC? I did have an official USB Se...
