Played all the single player games on that retro mini TV thing and..................
First and last pages have the best games on them, it has a load of clones on it. Think like a bootleg Famicom multi cart. A lot of the "Good" games would be better if they had a bit more polish
Also

Edit, played the other 80odd games
A few original games a load of what is basically reskinned early NES games

I'll have to get the Game and Watch knock off one I've got out, my fav on it was a Mario bros knock off themed entirely around Bald men.

Started Ride to hell retribution.
Its like almost every other game from that time,
The sex scenes are funny as they seemingly forgot to remove peoples clothes. It also loads the graphics as you play

Been playing a bit of Kula World on PS1 via my Vita after another pseudo-trade in (sold my original PS1 copy for the region of £90 on ebay, then downloaded the PSN version for £3.99). Always a very enjoyable puzzle game with some excellent 90's chill/ambient music and pleasing minimalism. The game does get fiendish later on though (I've never managed to get more than three quarters of the way through before getting stuck).
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

About to give Gun a crack if it'll run, been years since I last played it and somewhat criminal that it hasn't been remarstered or given a sequel as it's extremely well made.

Turns out it's a bust, it uses Safedisc which Windows 10 is not compitable with, I'll just have to replace it with a 360 copy or get it on Steam at somepoint.

Download a No CD crack for it. I used to do this with games I'd bought all the time so I didn't have to insert the disc to play.

I'll have a look in a bit but it doesn't always solve the problem with Win 10, the crack just generally tells the anti piracy measure the disc is there as opposed coding it out.

Utterly addicted to Witcher 3 now, this game must have been quite the undertaking to put together, it just keeps going.

'Journey' and 'A Short Hike' on the PC, two laidback chillout games.

Was also playing the first 'Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain' game again, managed to make it work on Windows 10 :D
