50p for 'Bubbler' is a great price!

3DS - Starfox 64 3D, Sonic Lost World, Yoshi's New Island

I would have got PES 2017 on the PS3 too but no-one had it. I spent the dosh I'd saved on one of the new Atari Flashbacks instead.

Wireless controllers? FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

Whats up with it?

The seller said he could not get a picture from the modulator. I was going to put an AV MOD on it.

I second that RF is censored, the power light comes on thats how it was sold as faulty. However I have just unboxed the thing wired it up to my TV and guess what it works fine. The seller clearly did not know what he was going. I will do the AV mod on it , I could not give a toss what all console purests people think.

Just a heads-up that Princess Maker 2 is now on Steam. It's a fun little game, I'd recommend it.

Not something I have just bought but upgraded. I purchased a non working PC Engine GT from ShadowMan on here a few months ago, and after spending quite a bit on it, it now has a full capacitor replacement and a brand new LCD screen to replace the old TFT screen. It looks and sounds amazing! A few pics:-

Glad to see the screen has been upgraded far beyond what it was previously, it looks fantastic :mrgreen:

My latest buys:
Strider, Final Fight Guy and Dead Rising:

I should now hopefully have all the console ports of Strider and Final Fight (though you can't really count NES Strider as a port since its a completely new game). Now its time to play through them all.
