Got an X-Arcade dual stick so hammering MAME a lot this week. Also got the Dreamcast adaptor with it but the serial extension lead is knackered so I'm waiting for them to send me a replacement before I can give Soul Calibur the X-Arcade treatment! :D
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

Got a brand new DC (agetec)arcade stick, and a few supplies from Gremlin solutions,namely a seimitsu LS-32-01 stick,1 LB-39 clear bubble ball top(and a violet one for free) and six sanwa black OBSF buttons.

Cut out the old joystick basin walls,drilled some new holes to mount the new stick ,sanded it ,widened the button holes that are in the metal face plate,so the new obsf's would fit,then fitted the new stick and buttons,wired it back up.

And the difference is like night and day,you should do the same with that X-arcade.

Also the Pier Solar Posterity pack,a couple of days before rupert .

I LOVE Turtles in Time! It's well worth paying out for if you can find it. The megadrive version, The Hyperstone Heist, is pretty awesome too.

I got Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast for £2 on eBay and also a boxed NES Advantage joystick for £4.99. I haven't tested it yet but it feels nice and sturdy!

Sonic Adventures is a really good 3DSonic game, one of the few. Well, I like it anyway!

Nice one, I'm quite looking forward to playing it when it arrives. Will be my first ever Dreamcast experience so I want it to be good :wink:

Namco Battle Museum Collection for PSP. Just to play Bosconian and Dragon Buster, two of my fave games ever. Unfortunately I have to say that, while almost all the games are good and funny, the controls are sometimes (often) unresponsive (besides being tipically unconfortable, but that's PSP...) and in games like Pacman or Rally-X this really is a no-no. I enjoyed the rearrangements of Galaga and Pac-Man. I still have to try the other two (Dig Dug and Rally-X).

The 3D sonic games were certainly diminising returns. Each one has been unspeakably worse than the last.

Adventure was a very reasonable game with a few hideous camera bugs. In the time since they forgot to fix the camera and introduced more faults than I could ever dream possible.

That's a decent haul mate! I bought my PS3 months ago and have only just realised it plays PS1 games so I'm playing catch up! Got Alien Trilogy for £2.99 in a game shop today and just got the Street Fighter Collection 2 on eBay for a fiver.

I downloaded Warhawk on the PS3!

Once I told a friend of mine that I bought a PS3, he pretty much forced me in to buying this.

I've played a couple minutes online...and its pretty good. I'm really rubbish at it though! :(
