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.

Yeah, got the theme, thanks 😁

Cheers for the offer but it's a boxed copy I'm after. I buy stuff to play but still have a collector's mentality I'll never quite be able to shake off 😂
No probs, was just a thought. God luck with the hunt.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the Golden Country

100%-ed, thats New Game+, every side quest and everything maxed out.

Now onto regular Xenoblade 2's New Game+ to do the same!
I have this on my backlog pile. Out of interest, how big is the game roughly? Perhaps as a percentage of XC2.

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

Nah, I can't when I know there's physical copies out there :lol: :oops: It's going for about £50 at the mo, I'll hopefully be able to get it for around that in another couple of months when I've got it spare. Would you be interested in my loose cart of the game for £25? I might upgrade to a boxed c...

As for games I still want to pick up for it, I want to try and get hold of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology at some point before physical copies go too expensive
If you can live with a digital copy keep checking the eshop, when it goes on sale it's only £8.

Re: GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

Thanks for the replies.

I'd rather have a proper GBA to be honest, as I'd like to make use of the Gamecubes connectivity.

A chinese seller of ebay includes a replacement shell as well as the IPS V2 screen, so I might take a punt on that.

The SP already has a backlight (one of the main selling points for the console when it was released).
Not all the SPs are backlit though, there was a revision that added a backlit screen but they're relatively rare and expensive, the majority are front lit making the screen look washed out.

GBA/GBA SP backlit screen mod

Anybody tried the GBA or GBA SP backlit screen mod? I'm thinking of upgrading a GBA SP of mine. The modded GBA looks nicer but I have spare SP parts so it makes sense, plus I think the SP mod is slightly more straight forward. I gather there's a choice between the standard backlit screen or an IPS s...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Started the DLC side story for Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Also playing through Zelda: the Minish Cap with a mate on the Wii U. With the screen smoothing on the game actually looks quite decent on the TV screen.

People's inability to accurayely describe things they're selling, would save us both a lot of hassle if they could.
More of this. Somebodys sells something as "like new" but it turns out to be covered in scuffs and scratches. I complain and they say "it's like new, not new". :roll:
