Doesn't Lair need a Sixaxis pad to work?
Later Dualshock 3 pads still retain the Sixaxis gubbins inside :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I'm sure they patched a standard controller control scheme into it a bit down the line... you may not require sixaxis anymore.

Have recently discovered that a load of my stuff went missing during my house move, so I'm replacing stuff as it comes up cheap(ish) on eBay. So this week I've bought a refurbed SNES unit only from a bloke in Croatia (what could possibly go wrong...), a new PSU for my NES/SNES, Double Dragon 3 & Burai fighter for the NES and Sword of Sodan and Dynamite Duke for the MD. At least that's something to get going with.

That Green thing is Megaman I honestly didn''t know who it was supposed to be, looked more like a telly bug.. The only characters I recognise on Captain N was King Hippo and Kid Icarus..

Which Nintendo characters where the squared jawed Freddy Hardest lookalike and the female lead? I also remember a brain like female creature that spoke in a black womans voice.. Is guessing the later is prehaps Mother Brain as she looks brainlike..

The girl was a new character created for the show. The guy with the bond hair and square jaw is Simon Belmont.

I actually used to love it as a kid, just to see the cameos of characters from other games.

It's a running joke have to agree with the commenter who says it's some kind of torture 8)

Shop of horror wasn't that a Venus fly trap that says "Feed me Seymour"?

Eggplant Wizard is indeed from the Kid Icarus series. The original 6 Mega Man 1 bosses, and the Mega Man 2 bosses (I believe) all turned up in the series along with Dr Wily (who was Mother Brains lacky in a few episodes).

I was finding the Doom reboot repetitive and boring so I traded it back to Cex against the price of DeadLight Director's Cut (Xbox), Deus Ex HR, Red Faction Guerrilla and Aliens Vs Predator (all PS3).
I got RF, AvP and Deus Ex for just a little over a £5er. It's insane how cheap games can be had, even from a high street shop. Even back in the N64 days, when I use to buy and part-exchange at a local indie on a regular basis, games where never this cheap.
