Does GTA5 count as retro? Either way I'm playing that again. much better than 4, it's daft and a bit easier, which suits me just down to the ground

Wipeout Omega collection.
I like not blinking for minutes.

Why is it that one every Playstation the Wipeout games look lush and in most cases the look like they belong on a newer gen machine?

More Alpha 3 Max. Dared to play as Rainbow Mika again and, yep, the 360s (and 720s for supers!!!) are hell on the PSP d-pad. Take so much damage while trying to pull the moves off that it's not worth it. Performing the moves while jumping is the only reliable way to get them to work but it's obviously far from ideal! Saying that, the PS2 version of Alpha 3 isn't much better (again, poor d-pad).

Hoping to get the time to check out the new Soulcalibur VI DLC tonight with Setsuka and the new creation parts.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Pretty much any 720 moves can be combed into using any attack as a link starter

Just started yakuza 2 as my 'main' game. Excellent remaster.
Mk11- finished story mode and now just faffing around the towers until the dlc story comes down in price.
Mario odyssey- 560 moons and it's just starting to get challenging.

Last Night Mama Rose Played Columns on the Mega Drive XB1 Collection and got 50GS for getting over 5000 points on easy! :D
Also Played Fortnite Battle Royale as usual. :oops:

Last night I played the start of GTA5 on the PS3. 8)

This Morning Little Wanino Played Ecco The Dolphin on the Mega Drive Collection on the XBOX 360 and got 10GS! :D
Also played a bit of Skylanders Trap Team but we think the game bugged out near the end of the level so we had to stop it sadly. :cry:

Recently dusted off my PSP Go to get some use out of it finally by hooking it up to my PS3 and adding a bunch of PSP and PS1 downloads I accumulated over the years. Still a pretty nifty device despite being download only, but there's a ton of super cheap downloads you can buy off PSN.

Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles (Had this waiting on my install list for ages.)
Various Disney games like A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Hercules, etc. (Most of them are about £1-£2 and those are not sales, they're always that price.)
Suikoden, Arc the Lad, Final Fantasy 5, 6, 7 and 8
Sonic Rivals (£3.69)
Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3
Street Fighter Alpha 1+2
Spyro
Crash Bandicoot

And so on. I know I could probably mod the thing but modding never really floated my boat, especially not at this cheap for the official stuff and getting a lot off my never played through list.

Might experiment and see if I can get a hold of American PSN PS1 games onto it like Mega Man Legends, Xenogears, etc. since they have over 200 more PS1 games over our selection.

PM me if you add me.
