  1. Just found out about this recently, pretty cool. It replaces the optical drive but you can run games from an SD card/SSD. And it works on the Saturn and Dreamcast, so you can swap around if you wished (or buy 2). Sounds like a pain if you need to update it or whatever.

    My 8Bitdo CoreFX Wireless controller also arrived on Saturday, only tried it for a little while but so far so good. No disconnects, no lag that I could notice, was comfy for the period I used it for. Also dedicated button to open the menu is nice instead of having to press the button combo.

    I have to admit, it's been fascinating watching case after case of sexual harassment in the industry being exposed over the past few weeks. You know, in the kind of way that a continuous chain of cars crashing would no doubt draw your attention.

    Just yesterday, I noticed that on my Twitter page, I refer to myself as an "Avid, British Gamer who does a bit of drawing now and again"

    It's accurate, I really like playing games. But there was a twinge of embarrassment I felt with it which made me consider changing the word "Gamer", despite doing nothing of the sort that we've seen come to light recently.

    I wonder if anyone else is starting to feel the same way now that a lot of "Gamers" are being exposed as the kind of scumbag who would do this?

    I've always hated the term, too many negative connotations which just get more added to it every year.

    I'm guessing you're referring to some allegations being made within the Smash community. But those also made some woman come forward in the Fire Emblem (Youtube) community.


  3. If it means that it ends day one downloads, features removed to be sold as DLC and crunch (unlikely) then so be it. Aiming for 4K must be very difficult to do and I think as games get more complicated then it's a lot more work.

    At least with Nintendo games, you can buy 99% off games without having to worry about the game dropping to £18 a week after launch (those where some good times the tail end of the PS3/Xbox 360 for consumers, probably not the publishers though).

    Are you sure this counts for the prizes as well? I forgot how many had last time, but I'm pretty sure it didn't add up for the 100 I needed for bronze earlier.. I should have have achieved that in no time, especially as I used up all the bait I had in storage. Didn't get to bronze last time, but I still had a bunch of points.

    Also, not sure if I want to do this ever again, so I think I do want to do this in one day.. Do you get all 3 prizes in one go?

    And does he buy them after 18:00? I forgot. He doesn't give me the option right now in any case.

    The prizes are randomised I think. You can get all 3 trophies as long as you get the points.

    He told he I had 200 points and I didn't have that many last time.

    I'm not sure after 6, Flick didn't if I recall correctly. To sell fish it's under the something else option, I've already sold him random fish I caught today.

    One step closer to an Adventure of Link sequel by Wayforward! :D 

    They made an Adventure Time game heavily, uh, 'inspired" by Zelda II and it was terrible.

    Wayforward are only "good" developers in my opinion, they would need quite a bit of guidance from Nintendo if they made a Nintendo IP game.

    Limited Run Games had a stream recently where they showed off their planned releases...

    I'm glad to see that Bug Fables is getting a physical release... right after I now own it digitally, oh well, that was always going to happen. :p

    Castlevania Anniversary Collection, I knew that was coming (probably) so I'm glad I waited on that.

    The original Shantae for GBC is getting a physical re-release on the GBC and on the Switch, plus the DSiWare title, Shantae: Risky's Revenge. :D

    Aside from that? I might pick up Grandia HD Collection and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2.

     

    They are also doing a physical release of Ys Origin which I didn't even though was coming to the system. There's a lot in that list that I'm interested in, but due to what was discussed in the Streets of Rage 4 thread, I'm not sure I want to support them. But they are making very hard to not to.

    It's so tempting to just throw away all the Mega Drive game boxes and keep the carts in one big box.

    That sentence hurts my soul.

    Update on this, the cancellation has gone through and I'm relieved as although it is an amazing console for what it is, it is a lot of money for something which I probably wouldn't use that much, I already have a Mega SG and a Super NT, both amazing machines which I will use more when I've had a proper chance to reorganise things.

    There's so many other ways to play NES games, it's not really work £500+. Just mod a NES Classic or something. You'd be better off waiting for the cheaper model.

    As an aside, Retro Gaming Cables are taking pre-orders for Nintendo RAD2x cables, might be worth getting one of those if you have a NES already.

    I stand corrected! Had no idea that it had sold out.

    To be fair, it didn't sell out straight away, it took a couple of weeks. But I guess there's a market out there.

    I think you just need some soldering skills really, which isn't too difficult but carries some risk.

    It does look awesome but yeah, $500 is not something many people will pay.

    I wish they would give an update on what’s going on with the Pocket - that one I’m very interested in picking up.

    I mean, it sold out. You could almost argue they mis-sold it if you wanted to spin it that way. I agree it's suspicious they added all these enhancements to a product that was already sold out.

    Analogue's lack of communication is really bad and is getting quite annoying, I think the Pocket is likely delayed as well but they just haven't said anything. I know they never gave a solid release window in the first place but it's still bad communication.

    I think I said this before, but I would love to put an IPS screen into a Gameboy but all they to require cutting up the shell which I can't bring myself to do, unless I buy another console/pre-mod'd one.

    @Dcubed (ore anyone) have you bought from that retrosix store before? I might grab a new speaker for my GBC from them. if they are trust worthy.


  10. I know he sometimes takes a break from forums for a while sometimes, no one seen him post of Resetera or anything? He not been online on his Switch for a while and I don't have his PSN to know if he been on there.

    I was going to drop him a PM, which I'll do now.
