  1. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    It's done! after six long months I can finally rest! Picked up an Xbox Series X from Argos online just a moment ago.
  2. Marvel's Phase 4

    I want a deadpool cameo.
  3. Not gonna bother pre-ordering. I'll pick it up when i'm in town one day.
  4. My Console Modding Experiment

    Are you kidding? I had trouble opening up a PS1 controller last night. Was trying to fix an analogue stick that is permenantly stuck down. Couldn't do it, some wires were souldered from the controller board to the rumble mechanism so i couldn't pull the board all the way out, all i had was a screwdriver.
  5. General Retro Discussion

    Hermes left my PSOne in my compost bin for over a week! I've only just found the damn thing. This is taped up pretty well so there doesn't seem to be much damage. Hermes can suck a dick. Never got a slip through my door or anything! Fucking thing was just sitting in there. Had to get the seller to give me the tracking number since they said it was delivered last Thursday. I put it in the tracker along with my postcode and the guy just flung it in my compost bin and took a picture. If it wasn't for that picture it would still be laying in there right now.
  6. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

    Already platinumed this on the PS4, might be nice to have it in a portable form though. I could do it all again on the toilet.
  7. Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

    I've been looking for a way to read the old Archie Sonic comics. Also the old UK Sonic comics. I haven't really found a place to read them online. Looks like eBay and Amazon is the only way now.
  8. General Retro Discussion

    My childhood was just dropped through the door this morning. Booted it up on the PS3 but the copy protection stops me from going past the title screen. I'll wait untill the PS One gets here and try it again.
  9. General Retro Discussion

    It was a PSOne Here is the link to the eBay listing. I had the grey block as a kid but I really wanted the PSOne when it first came out.
  10. General Retro Discussion

    So I bought a PS1 off of eBay last night. Mostly because I wanted to play Ape Escape again. There are alot of cheep PS1 joblots on there too so i might pick one or two of them up and start collecting for the PS1 again. Still looking for a decently priced Gameboy Player for the Gamecube with no luck.
  11. New Pokémon Snap

    Got this in yesterday, still haven't touched it. I remember getting the N64 pokemon snap for my either 11th or 10th birthday. Played the crap out of it. I'm not sure if i can relate to this game with all the new pokemon. The last pokemon game I seriously played to the end was gold. I've only dabbled in Platinum and Ruby. I'll fire it up after dinner and see how it is.
  12. Yakuza 6 (PS4)

    At what point did you stop playing?
  13. What Have You Bought?

    A Raspberry Pi 4 8Gb board. Been wanting to try and make a little emmulation machine. From what i've seen online it looks pretty easy.
  14. Switch eShop Thread

    Picked up Yoku's Island Express for about £2.50 in the sale. Nice little metroidvania / pinball adventure game. Pretty short though story wise. Almost finished the story after a day or so. Still have alot of collectables and stuff to get though.
  15. I stopped reading One Piece around volume 70. Still waiting for that fouth manga box set to be released.
  16. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Thinking about dropping my attempts at getting a PS5 and switching to trying to get a Series X. Microsoft seem to be doing a better job at preserving older games and has a pretty extensive backwards compatible list that i can see. Mostly for the Forza Horizon games but wierdly also for Skate 3 which I haven't played in over a decade now. I had an Xbox One at a time but ended up selling it, kinda miss playing the master chief collection to be honnest the thing is I don't really want to pay for two seperate online services when i'm already paying for PS Plus however Game Pass does look tempting to me.
  17. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Rolled my ankle while i was running yesterday and now its pretty badly brused. Gonna lay off for a while untill i can run without limping like an idiot. Will probably try again around Monday or so.
  18. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    I haven't touched this game since January, mostly because i'm waiting to get my hands on a PS5 which isn't happening anytime soon. By the looks of things they atleast are trying to fix it, i'll try playing it later in the year.
  19. The Android Thread

    Might think about upgrading my Sony Xperia XZ later this year. I dropped the iPhone since i hated doing everything through Apple. Couldn't even transfer my photos to the PC without doing it all through iTunes. With an xperia I can just connect it to the PC and it transfers without the hassle. The Xperia 5 II looks nice at £799 but the Xperia 1 II is over £1000 and i'm just not prepaired to pay that ammount of money for a phone.
  20. What Have You Bought?

    Had it preordered from Amazon since it was announced. Never noticed the price drop, was a nice surprise
  21. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Funny enough I also have Planter Fascitis from running too much. Feet still flair up when i run and they slap down instead of rolling through the sole of the foot when i run. People are saying I look like i've lost weight which is nice (as i sit here downing a bottle of wine to ruin everything) I've been running with the dog everyday around 2pm for an hour and that seems to be taking the weight off, the thing is i like to stuff my face with garbage around 8pm. Really need to stop doing that.
  22. What Have You Bought?

    I also bought this. Going straight onto the Jackie Chan shelf.
  23. Hades (PC, Switch)

    I've been hearing good things about this but I haven't went and bought it yet. Should be cheap since it's been out for a while now I guess. I might pick it up in a sale or soemthing.
  24. Got my vaccination appointment letter in the mail yesterday. Wasn't really expecting it for a while to be honnest. Will probably send me another appointment a few weeks after the first shot. EDIT: 12/3/21 first vaccination was done. Dunno when i'll be getting the next one though.
