  1. Got very lucky! It’s a hell of a beast! I know it’s been said before but it still surprised me by it’s sheer heft even after everything I’ve seen and heard. It’s almost as big as my AV Receiver and I’m not exaggerating. Might have to spray the fins though - with removable plasti-dip just in case. Being white makes the fact it’s huge stand out even more. Looks ridiculous. Mrs isn’t happy lol.

  5. Splurging PSN Credit like a boss... I really want to play this again so bought the season pass while it was on discount to go with the free game. And bought this glorified cheat code because I can't be bothered to do 4 more runs of it.

  6. The last of my Game Gear pick ups. 2 completely useless TV Tuners, which I wanted so bad back in the day, what a shame there's no analogue TV any more. Also a bunch of games, the reason I bought the bundle was because it had, and was cheaper to buy like this, Streets of Rage, Sonic Chaos, and Master of Darkness, which I've never played before. Fantasy Zone and Devilish are supposed to be pretty good, I did see a video saying Factory Panic is decent. The rest I'm less interested in. Got a decent little collection now though

  8. Late Xmas present from the OH. Immediately swapped to the other cover, loads better. Thank God for physical Media still. Got for £45 instead of the ridiculous £70 they’re charging on PS Store.

  9. Finally upgraded my trusty old Panasonic TV to a fancy LG OLED in preparation for a PS5 (if they ever come back in stock). Also had a bit of a tidy up (it's not normally that messy, that's just after the kids being able to run rampant as I try and juggle homeschooling with work).

  10. A couple more Game Gear games have turned up. Sensible Soccer. I loved the Game Gear version of this, seems to be showing me the dpad on this Game Gear isn't in great nick. I'll play it more though And the Japanese game on the screen is the GG version of one of my favourite puzzle games, Baku Baku Animal

  11. A couple more Game Gear games I picked up. The NBA Jam is American judging by the bar on the side. Shining Force Gaiden is Japanese, I don't think this particular game came west but the sequel did. Shining Force generally isn't the hardest game to get through in Japanese though

  12. Bought a few games over Christmas. Picked up a few cheap Steam games, the Lighthouse Keeper was so cheap I bought it and it wasn't even in a sale. The Suicide of Rachel Foster is supposed to be very good, and Castle of Shikigami is an old shooter I loved the sequel of Also bought Horace and Murder by Numbers on the Switch, and Jurassic Park on the Game Gear, which is supposed to be pretty good, and action platformer shoot em up, like the film

  14. I have no idea why it's taken me this long to play Hitman. Somehow I already owned GOTY legacy edition of Hitman 2016 so I've been playing it through the Hitman 2 starter pack. Bought Hitman 2 last week when it was on offer, and today the expansion pass has gone on offer so grabbed that too. Then I pre-ordered Hitman 3. I've been hammering the Microsoft Rewards which has paid for half of the game, and I got another fiver back for pre-ordering. Once 3 is installed and I've moved over my progress, I should be able to del

  18. ^ yeah i failed a mission there too, maybe a bug? it coincided with me accidentally running someone over so not sure if it was related to that, it was a mission for the police iirc. been staying out of here till i'd finished it, which i have now. feelings are a bit mixed, but more positive than most is seems, the city looks amazing, enjoyed just driving around and exploring. there's a lot of missions i really liked. the stealth is pretty fun when it works. the fps combat is alright (once i'd messed round with the settings). the rpg elements are pretty streamlined. bad points for me

  19. Truly excellent game, I thought. Level after level of great gameplay, stealth and shooting. But, holy shit, that final boss. That monstrosity nearly brought the whole house of cards down to the floor. What the fuck. For a start I had to Google what I was even supposed to do on the first stage, cos I never even saw those blimps he was powering up from. And on the second stage I went thru every scrap of ammo to no avail. Back to Google, where I discovered the bastard is invincible during his stun animation - when, naturally, I was unloading all my heaviest ordinance against him. I'm

  20. That is Alyx finito. Absolutely wrecked after all of that, I tend to spend a lot of time crouching or in a constant squat so I can get behind cover so it actually wears you out after a while. It's hard to collect my thoughts on it all as a result, but it's very distinctly Half Life. In one sense cause of how every chapter takes an idea and the devs explore it within their game design, which is obviously something it's got in common with every game in the series. Chapter 7 is the one that people tend to hype up the most, personally for me it didn't land but I never really liked the

  23. @DANGERMAN post reminded me I forgot to post this. For Christmas Naz has for me this It's a replica of the original Gameboy case, but with a nice screen, some extra buttons and a raspberry pi zero inside powering it. I only got as far as getting retro pie installed and dropped some ROMs onto it. It'll run 8 bit stuff fine and 16bit stuff seems ok bit the pi0 struggles with anything that used the SFX chip on the SNES. I was hoping GBA stuff would work, and it seems to for the most part, but you get some odd issues with audio which apparently is related to the pi0

  24. I bought the All in one pack for this way back in 2017, played it once, and assumed my free trial would be long expired but no, it’s still active, for however long. I played it for two hours today, basically to the end of the introduction to the game, which felt like it was more or less completely offline. Impressions so far - well the graphics show the game’s age, it was originally released in 2012 on the Wii. But the cut-scenes and close-ups are quite nice. There is no voice acting in the game but the music is nice, and already I think I’ve heard more variety than in the entirety o

  29. It's only taken about 10 yrs (or indirectly 15 yrs since I originally played it on PC when it came out) but I've just got 60/60 achievements on the 360 version of Elder Scrolls Oblivion (5th Anniversary Edition) 1250 gamer points (as it includes the Shivering Isle dlc). And this is the first time I've ever maxed out any achievements /trophies as I don't usually even bother with the alerts or checking them - but it was only since I wondered the date of when I got the first ones on this that caused me to look (and it didn't show either, I assume since I got them on a different consol

  30. Last of the Game Gear stuff for a while. I've never played it but I've heard Mappy talked about a bit over the years so I thought I'd give that a go. Got it a little cheaper than the going rate. Also picked up Viewtiful Joe on the DS which is a game I used to own, and really liked but sold when I was a poor boy

  31. 👍 Got my company to rank number 1, probably took around 4 hours (ish) all told... definitely wasn't as difficult as I'd made it up to be in my head. It's taken my personal cash pot up to around 17 million but as Andy said that's still not really a lot of money in this game... I can still carry on with management whenever I fancy it though as shareholder meetings pay out over 2 million a pop for success. Oh... and for getting rank 1 I can now fire an Orbital Laser Beam at enemies, apart from I can't as it costs 200mp and my stats aren't that high yet.😄 Managed

  32. They need to sort out the aggro system in the next installments though, trying to use Aerith was a right pain in the arse as everyone just homes in on whatever character you're using at the time.

  34. One for the retro gaming fans. I have teamed up with Jerry Ellis of Golem Books (creator of The Book of the Game of the Film) to write a new book: ARCADE IMPERFECT With an exclusive Oli Frey cover, the book looks at over 300 classic arcade games and investigates how well (or badly) they were converted to home computers. Starting with single screen games, moving on to scrolling and finishing with 3D, each entry includes trivia about the arcade machine and its maker, or glimpses into the story of how the game reached the home. With review ratings and opinions from classic m

  37. Inspired by reader DANGERMAN getting a Game Gear TV Tuner that he always wanted as a kid but is now completely useless, is there a gaming peripheral, game, or console that you missed out on back in the day that you always wanted? It could be a now out of print game, a rare controller, or even a variant console

  38. Last year about this time I went on holiday to Tenerife, I didn’t know they had filmed an episode there, can’t remember if I posted this here, but I took some pictures of this amazing building, then the weekend it was on Who! It’s a very cool building, there version of the Sydney opera house. Not very often i visit somewhere I see on tv!

  39. Been having a good go on this with my PS now sub. What an unusual game. So much so I really didn't know how best to play it. I remember having a go of the vita one years ago and failing hard with that. But I've stuck with it until reaching the big city, done all side quests available, and I'm pretty good at it now, I think, or at least I have a method of playing it under my fingers. See where it goes.

  42. I've now watched the last Season of Clone Wars. I think this was the best Star Wars content I've seen in a long while. Probably since the last four episodes of Season 5. There's something about the Anakin-Ahsoka setup that just works and is completely missing from most movies. The fact that Anakin is actually an interesting character here and not just a badly written weirdo also adds a lot to the overall plot of the prequel storyline. I'm also glad Ahsoka got her time to shine here after being more of regular side character in earlier seasons. I really like her as character, partly because her

  43. Well the end of the road is drawing near. It's been an interesting run. Main quest line was completed. Thieves Guild was completed fully with the stones collected. Bards Guild was completed. Dark Brotherhood was completed and for the first time ever Cicero was killed. Civil War quest line completed for the first time ever. Not a satisfying outcome, I wonder what taking Skyrim's independence would be like. Maybe next time. A really odd playstyle to take if I'm being honest, for me anyway. I only saw one Dragon Priest in the

  44. It's looking like I'll be home alone for Christmas. My mum has been ill and I'd rather not risk her health just to get quietly drunk before saying something so terrible about Call the Midwife I get sent out of the room Back when I was a kid I got a Mega Drive with a bunch of games. Mega Games 1 and 2, so Columns, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe etc, plus some licensed games like Tail Spin. We'd played all the good games secretly on the run up to Christmas so I spent boxing day with the below game. I hated it at first but learnt to play it and it's actually great, or was, my brother an
