  1. Playstation Plus Free Games

    @Julius That would be much appreciated. A round will take about 30 minutes with 2 people. Change your difficulty to beginner and it’ll be a lot more enjoyable for you. Add me if we aren’t already friends on PSN.
  2. Playstation Plus Free Games

    Did anyone download and play PGA Tour 2K21? I nearly have the platinum trophy but one of the two remaining trophies I need to get is creating a private room and completing a round? HELP!

    Decided to order a new case for my Game Boy Advance that a guy at work gave me last year as the plastic around the speaker and L&R triggers had yellowed as well as the case colour fading. Only cost £8 and it looks so much better with it mainly for display purposes in the games room. I also recently bought a Game Boy Pocket that a mates sister was selling that is in really good condition. I have no real intention of collecting handhelds but I remember getting this for Christmas in 1996 as a surprise present off my parents. My mum would usually check with my brother before buying anything gaming related that I hadn't asked for but got this without asking my brother and with everything that's happened with my mum over the last 10 months (diagnosed with dementia and moved into a care home), it means so much to have this in my possession.
  4. Right, so with the Switch 4K model days / weeks from being announced, I thought it be fun to see if any of us can correctly predict the name that they go with. I hope I'm wrong as I hate them sticking New in front of consoles and games titles New Nintendo Switch

    Amazon have price matched here if you prefer to use them instead of ShopTo.
  6. TMNT: Shredder's Revenge

    That looks incredible. Dotemu? without me googling. They were involved in developing Streets of Rage 4 weren't they?
  7. Dinosaur Planet N64 Build has leaked!!

    Just played it on my N64 via everdrive. 20 years I waited to play it. Was so hyped for this game back in the day with the previews in N64 magazine. Looks and sounds fantastic for an N64 game. Wouldn't expect anything less from Rare. Unfortunately it crashed on me just as I was starting with Sabre. Didn't save beforehand either.... I see Resident Evil 0 and Twelve Tales being mentioned but what about the N64 version of Eternal Darkness?
  8. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Forgot about Yooka Laylee, was going to pick that up on the PS4 at some point. Regarding online games, I tend to be playing in short spurts at the moment so not ideal for me.
  9. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Took advantage of the 3 months for £1 offer. Recommend me some Xbox One exclusives to play. Currently playing through Gears 5. Thinking Halo 5 after that.
  10. What Do You Want From Nintendo In 2021?

    Tempted but lack of voice chat is a big factor. I'm not using the PS4 party chat to communicate on another console's game in 2021.
  11. What Do You Want From Nintendo In 2021?

    For me, in 2021, I need Nintendo to give me a reason to buy the Switch. At the moment there's only 2 games I want to play on it. Super Mario Odyssey & Luigi's Mansion 3 Unfortunately they aren't enough for me to justify buying one. Now if one of those titles was Mario Kart 9, that'd be different but that's clearly being saved for the successor to the Switch. I think Nintendo have become incredibly lazy due to the success of the Switch and relied way too much on Wii U Ports to fill up the release schedule. I get that not many people played those games but still, what about your hardcore fan base who stuck with you during the Wii U years It's been weird sitting out on the Switch so far, as going back to the NES and Gameboy, I've always bought Nintendo's consoles and handhelds at launch or just after.
  12. General Retro Discussion

    Was going to create a separate thread to ask this but I think here is fine. What are your 3 best retro gaming bargains pick ups over the years, whether it be from a games store, car boots or eBay. Mine would be 1. Space Harrier for the 32X, boxed with instructions and inserts. £3 at a car boot. This is the only time I've ever seen a 32X game at a car boot. 2. Sega Saturn with 2 controllers and Sega Rally (unboxed). £1.50 at a car boot. Again, the only time I've seen a saturn at a car boot. Still works great. 3. Gameboy Player with disc, £2 at a car boot. I've had a crazy amount of luck over the years with car boots but its become a lot harder to find bargains with everyone these days having access to CEX & eBay on their phones. Notable mentions. 50p for an original Gameboy 50p for CIB Ghouls N Ghosts for the megadrive £2 for a Nintendo Wavebird with receiver
  13. I don't own a switch and played Mario Kart 8 to death on the Wii U. Maybe people are just bored of playing Mario Kart 8 after 6 years.
  14. N-E Café Podcast

    How have you managed to hold off buying this for so long? I doubt you've managed to avoid spoilers until now. I think I got it a week after launch due to spoilers popping up all over youtube and not wanting them to ruin the experience for me.

    A guy at work was telling me how he had been helping his parents clear out their loft and had come across some games and a gameboy. I asked what he did with them as I collect old games and consoles. His response, put them all in the skip.... Luckily he got them out of the skip for me and said if he comes across anything else, I can have them too. Not the best of games but there are a few gems in there. The gameboy advance was in a right state. I took it apart, cleaned everything and ordered a new lens as the original was scratched to death Quite happy with it now
