The joys of digital.

 

I've recently been given an Xbox 360 (launch model that still works)! Thought it would be great for the kids to bash through some of the old Arcade stuff i've bought over the years. Seems half of the games have been taken off sale due to licensing issues. Specifically looking at you, Afterburner Climax.

 

If it's in your purchase history, you should be able to redownload even if they are no longer available to buy. I think there's only a very small selection of games where this isn't the case. I could be wrong, though.

 

I watched that Dave Perry video and it was a proper mess. I remember hearing a while ago that he was planning a return, and it's turned out pretty much how I thought it would.

It would help if the purchase history worked, it just comes up as blank. The only way i've managed to find any list of purchased content was to go through my achievements list and write them down.

I have so many questions.

 

What the fuck did I just watch? Does he realise we’re not in 1996 any more? Did he actually refer to himself as ‘The Games Animal’?Why is he trying to talk like he’s a cool kid? Did he think the bikini song was actually good? Was it a joke? How many people actually remember him? Did anyone who remembers him ever actually like him? Does Dominic Diamond have a gaming channel?

 

I just checked his views.

 

I quit.

I always thought he was a cock when he was on Gamesmaster... guess I was right all along.

Same as Nag, I remember him vividly as being a massive dick at the time. The whole Mario 64 “stitch up” thing - even if it was, most people would just let it go. 

Unsure whether the Games Animal is a character or that really is just him, but that whole video is just stuck in the nineties.

Well, that was quite something. A pretty mediocre show topped off by some lasses in swimwear jiggling about.

 

Also loads of other issues that drove me insane. Drink some water Perry, you sound like shite. And put a throw over the leather chair to stop it making background noise. You should know this stuff, you've been on TV for fucks sake.

There's also some room echo coming through, you can see why people use dampeners.

I rooted out my 3DS because I had an urge to finally start up Majora's Mask 3D and there are games on that I had no idea I owned. 

 

I have Attack of the Friday Monsters and both Zelda Oracle games among others (I remember buying one, not both).

Regarding Dave Perry, Elena has just asked me “Please never get like that guy.” 😂

 

@DifferentClass I love it when that happens. I actually bought the Majora’s Mask 3DS but never played the game (on 3DS I mean, played it through on N64 a few times), so I should probably get on that.

I first played Majora's Mask on the Wii VC and I was playing a lot of Zeldas before Skyward Sword came out so I think I rushed it which stopped me enjoying it as much as maybe I could.  So the plan is just to chill out and try to get all the masks and not rush it.  I have a Ocarina of Time save just before the Water Temple by the looks of it so I may try and finish that off too.

 

I'll get round to Friday Monsters as well.  It's quite a short one from what I remember hearing.
