Re: Coronavirus

Not worried about the actual virus itself, the vulnerable should take precautions of course, and the rest of us should get on with our lives as much as possible. I'm much more concerned with the long term effects this may have politically, culturally and economically. The supermarket shortages are a...

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

My 2DS is behaving strangely when I try to charge it. When I plug in the charger the orange light comes on and everything seems normal at first. But if I remove the charger cable while the system is off, the orange light will remain on. :? I originally noticed that the orange light wasn't switching ...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Finished the DLC story of Fire Emblem Three Houses, it was ok but not as good as the main game.

Re: Doctor Who Community Buzzing With Rumours

I haven't watched the recent seasons of the show, but I watched quite a bit of the older Dr. Who stuff back in the day and have fond memories of it. I watched the first episode of the modern stuff and while it wasn't terrible it didn't feel the same and I didn't bother watching anymore. Having heard...

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

Donloaded Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse for the 3DS in the eshop sale.

Never played a SMT game before, but this was cheap enough to give a go, not I'll get around to playing it any time soon, haha.

Skies of Arcadia Legends for the Gamecube, missing it's instructions but the price was fair, glad to have this back in my collection, it will...

Re: Is the forum in decline?

I think there's also a sense of being "talked out" about retro. No disrespect to newer members but people that have been around for ages probably struggle to reply to the same questions or muster up the enthusiasm to take part in topics they've seen a billion times before. We needn't only talk abou...

Re: GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

I know some people aren't happy with how DS games are displayed on the 3DS's screen but it isn't a big enough issue for me to lose any sleep over to be honest. They look fine to me. Yeah I don't think it looks that bad either. That said the XL models are good as they can show games in the original ...

Re: GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

I bought a DSL to play my GBA carts on, it does the job and brilliantly of course, but the cart sticking out the bottom does my OCD in Lol. The added bonus is getting DS games for it too I suppose, but I do miss the sleek GBA, SP and micro. I loved my Micro but my old eyes didn't ! I did like my ol...

Re: GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

The screen and purple casing arrived today. I installed the screen, didn't bother with the screen brightness adjustment mod for now. The screen looks great, GBA games just look so much nicer. :D Only downside is the screen is slightly slanted by a few degrees, so the edges aren't running perfectly p...

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

Zelda Triforce Heroes for the 3DS. Hugely underrated game I thought. The reviews I remember complained that it's 'impossible' to play solo but I went through it myself and had a blast with it...yeah, some parts are obviously geared more towards having other players to help.but it's still manageable...

Re: 2019/2020 Football season chat

Well the run had to end sometime, I thought it would be a game we didn't see coming. Just want to get over the line now, been waiting a long time for this.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Thanks, that's good to know, yeah I'm sure I'll enjoy it, I loved XC2 and put 100s of hours into it, still haven't done everything either.
