  1. I have the IPS screen ready to go, I’m waiting for this other thing before I use it though.
  2. A combination of being crazy busy with work and delays in getting anything shipped to me means I’ve been a bit behind on this. A few small things I’ve been working on: I now have all the parts to make a fully upgraded Game Gear. I have also had a machine delivered but I haven’t been able to get it running with the easy fixes. Need to get my hands on a few more to see if I can actually make this work. They seem to sell for decent money once done so I might make a few and see if I can make money with them. Upgraded my stock GBA SP from the grey buttons above to… One with black buttons. Not much of a change but I think it looks much nicer. Only weird thing is that the kit doesn’t come with a volume slider which means you have one old mismatched button. This is actually not the final form of the GBA I’m going for, I have something quite special on the way which I’m looking forward to creating the ultimate GBA with.
  3. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Yeah it doesn’t sound anything like it, just business as usual for a game developer. Either there is something more to this or they’re just trying to sensationalize the fact that Mike Mumbauer and some of the team have left which again, is totally normal. I have Mike as a connection on LinkedIn and have been wondering for a while where he’s going, didn’t expect to see such an odd story related to his leaving Sony. I’d say this is more a case of doing something that can be ramped up quickly and probably was probably intended as a PS5 special edition rather than a full on remake. It makes sense for a new internal team to work on something like that and get used to tech and production pipelines than go straight in on a bigger project.
  4. Formula 1: 2021 Season

    Yeah they really do. The general rules have always been that you need one part of a tyre at least on one of the track limit white lines but I don’t get why in recent years we’ve slipped more and more into this custom rules per corner dependent on how people feel that weekend. It’s always seemed pretty simple to me that that should remain the rule and they have set punishments within it - leave the track during a qualifying lap and the time is deleted, leave it during the race and if you gain an advantage there is a set time penalty. Surprised by happy Hamilton managed to get the win. Max really should have had this one in the bag but he still seems to have a lot to learn about coping under pressure and making things work for him.
  5. Formula 1: 2021 Season

    With the extremely limited development for 2021 those that have been most hit by the regulation changes didn’t really have much room to get their car back to previous performance. Definitely don’t mind another Mercedes year, much preferable to having Max win it. I would imagine with the huge rule changes for next year every car will be a complete change in design philosophy. If I was Hamilton I’d put my faith in Mercedes getting it right over any of the other teams. The problem is that with these huge changes you usually get one team figure something out that no one else does and running away with it. We could end up with a super close season this year followed by dominance by one team next year. Still, will be interesting to see the new cars at least.
  6. What Have You Bought?

    I don’t think it does unfortunately.
  7. What Have You Bought?

    My mouse has been playing up a lot recently so decided to treat myself to an upgrade: Huge improvement! Wish I’d have gotten something like this a lot sooner.
  8. What Have You Bought?

    Won a couple of auctions for retro stuff I’m going to mod.
  9. The GameStop....swizzle?

    With this latest bump I’ve sold off the remainder of my holding. Seems no one is really sure what’s causing this one but I guess it’s people closing short positions from the previous bump combined with the reddit crew who for some reason are still buying. Didn’t expect to get another big win out of this one so pleasantly surprised it’s had another bounce.
  10. Formula 1: 2021 Season

    This page seems to have some interesting info on the fantasy scoring. Basically I think you have to choose Hamilton to stand a chance of winning, and then your other drivers need to average better than their regular competitors for where you will specifically finish. Maybe if you average out the mid-field guys you could stand a chance of winning but I think more likely to yield a good result is having Hamilton in there.

    Next car for 2021:
  12. Mario Golf Super Rush (25th June 2021)

    Looks really nice. That speed golf mode looks like it will be a ton of fun for multiplayer. Definitely going to pick this one up.
  13. Formula 1: 2021 Season

    A bit of old news but we have the first car for 2021: Nothing particularly unexpected but continues to look great IMO.
  14. You realize we’re on a public forum in a thread to discuss this exact topic, right? It’s fine if you don’t want to share, just seemed an interesting topic to cover given your strong views on it. We’ve now played through the first couple of levels and I’m definitely still not feeling it. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is with this one, it just doesn’t seem to have the magic of the other Mario games. My wife and I also don’t seem to be a very good team, I fear this might lead us to a huge argument if not worse at some point.
  15. Forgot to pick this up earlier but my copy should be delivered today. I found the Wii U version a bit lacking and not all that memorable, but it came out at a point where I wasn’t really playing games so wanted to give it another chance. Intending to only do this in co-op with my wife so hopefully it shines like that and we can enjoy playing through in a more relaxed style. @drahkon, I can’t quite fathom your thoughts on it. You think it’s so bad that it warrants being one of the worst platformers of all time, yet played it through to 100% completion twice? Now it sounds like you can’t be bothered to pay full price for the new content but will pick it up reduced to play it later? Why do it to yourself? Just ignore it and pretend it doesn’t exist. I do think it’s the weakest of the 3D Mario games but to call something of this quality one of the worst ever seems a little over the top. What did you find so lacking in it?
