  1. Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    Coulson is DB Cooper.
  2. Is "Game" finished?

    I was one of the people complaining on Twitter when I didn't get any steelbook case at all, and they were fobbing people off with "eh.. it was limited.. and we don't have any more so.. deal with it..?" and they were still advertising it. I @'d watchdog and WHICH in a follow-up tweet and received a DM from Game a couple of days later, and they posted out a steelbook which they totally didn't have, nope.
  3. Doctor Who

    She's Mork.
  4. The Greatest Games Systems Of All Time

    1. Super Nintendo 2. Dreamcast 3. PS2 4. XBox 360 5. Amiga 6. PSP 7. PS3 8. WiiU 9. C64 10. Tomytronic 3D series I would have loved to have included the NEO GEO, it would probably have taken the number 6 spot, but I only played the games in the arcade and on MAME, so I don't think it really counts. The Tomytronic 3D games - despite being standalone - should count, so I'm including them all as my number 10 system. I got my ex-brother in law one for his birthday a couple of years ago from ebay, and it was still badass.
  5. I'd have like to have seen Michael Fassbender as Crowley and David Tennant as Aziraphale. It would have been interesting, although a bit 'BBC christmas adaptation' to have tried a version with Noel Fielding and Julian Barrat. Would maybe have been a bit obvious though. Edited to add: Jack Whitehall can fuck off.
  6. SNES Mini

    Check your spam filter, that's where mine was, as the fucked up sending the email out for some people and instead of the usual html page, it was send out as the code lisiting for the html page. Damn it, should have read to the end of the page.
  7. The worst crimes in music

    That's some Flight of the Conchords level stuff. Absolutely nothing wrong with it.
  8. 1. Super Mario World (SNES) 2. Rez (DC/PS2/360) 3. Resident Evil 4 (GC) 4. Half Life 2 (PC/Orange Box) 5. Portal 2 (PS3) 6. Zelda : A Link to the Past (SNES) 7. Bioshock (360) 8. Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2/PS3) 9. Wii Sports Resort (Wii) 10. Grand Theft Auto V (PS3/PS4) 11. Ico (PS2/PS3) 12. Parappa the Rapper (Playstation) 13. Jet Set Radio (DC/PS3) 14. Daytona USA (Arcade/DC/PS3) 15. Crackdown (360) 16. Tony Hawk's Underground 2: Remix (PSP) 17. Bust-A-Move 2 (Playstation) 18. Rabbids Go Home! (Wii) 19. Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) 20. Wipeout HD/Fury (PS3 3D) Others in my shortlist : Winning Eleven 7: International (PS2) House of the Dead 2 (Arcade/DC) Zombies Ate My Neighbours (SNES) Flatout: UC (360) Bomb Jack (Arcade/C64) Tetris (Gameboy) Catherine (PS3) Tomena Sanner (Wii) Burnout Revenge (360) Katamari Damacy (PS2) Sonic 2 (MD) Everybody's Golf (PSP) Lumines (PSP) The Secret of Monkey Island 2 (Amiga) MaternalBound (SNES) - this is a romhack of Earthbound which restores changes from the JP Mother 2, and adds a run button. It would have been in my top 20, but I don't think romhacks should count. Regardless, it makes one of the best games of all time even better. Saints Row 3 (PS3)
  9. Super Nintendo Appreciation Thread

    There's a bit at the end of this SFC hidden gems video where the guy demonstrates how he opened up a SNES Jr and easily popped out a part that allowed him to just insert JP carts without an adapter - maybe this would be useful? I don't know if the SFC Jr was fabricated the same way.
  10. Wii U

    You can update to the latest Wii U update and still do the hack - although for a persistent hack you'll need to buy a DS game from the eShop on your Wii U (which was always the case - the initial hack is done by loading Hombrew Launcher via the Wii U browser). Luckily, for a lot of people (including me) Brain Training shows as free and can be used in to do the hack. Just google for Wii U 5.5.2 hack guide and you should find a tutorial.
  11. Cheers! I'll have a look.
  12. Super Nintendo Appreciation Thread

    If anybody's looking for a wee SNES bundle, I've put this up in the Retro Swap thread - I don't have a price yet, I'm still trying to figure out what to ask so if you're into it, make me an offer?
  13. mother! - Darren Aronofsky

    Ok, I'm going to spoiler this, as even though it might sound daft - and I haven't read or heard or seen anything of the film until I just watched the trailer, so this is absolute speculation, and me just thinking aloud - and I repeat that it's just a mad idea.. .. it sounds like something Aronovsky would do, right? I'm not mental.
  14. Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but I need a little pricing help. I'm looking to sell off my small SNES collection (I haven't even had it connected up since I moved a year ago, so I figured I'd let it go). I'm looking to sell as a bundle, as I'm so busy at the moment that I'd honestly take ages to get around to getting back to people and posting individual bits out. 1x unboxed UK SNES, decent condition and fully working. Very slightly yellowed, but not unsightly (it does have slight scoring around the cart slot where a previous owner has marked it out for widening the slot to take US carts, but it's not noticeable when sat under the telly). 1x unboxed UK SNES (not pictured, it's still in the loft), atrocious condition (it's filthy, bits broken off it and it rattles if you shake it. I was palmed off with this by an ebay seller a couple of years ago who tried to scam me. In the end I was sent the one above, and told to keep the minging one). Unbelievably, it actually works fine, so it would be a neat restoration project, or useful for spares. 1x original AV cable 1x third party RGB SCART (fantastic picture quality) 1x third party PSU 2x original pads in good condition. Nothing broken, fully working. There may be another original pad in not great condition, but still working. I'm not sure. I'll have to get the box with the filthy SNES down from the loft and check it. 1x Pro Universal Adapter for playing US or JP carts in a UK SNES 1x SCART to HDMI upscaler (this works great with RGB SCART, and does 720p, 1080i and 1080p with a few different screen ratios. I'm pretty sure I have the box for this, but I'll have to check). Unboxed games : Addams Family (UK) Bubsy the Bobcat (UK) Tiny Toons Buster Busts Loose (UK) Super Punch Out (UK) Puggsley's Scavenger Hunt (UK) Nangoku Shonen Papuwa-kun (JP) - this is a fantastic JP-only platformer Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Warriors (JP) - the JP version of Turtles Tournament Fighters, has a few JP-only changes to sprites etc. Both JP games are fully playable with no knowledge of Japanese Boxed games : Krusty's Super Fun House (UK) Street Fighter II (UK) Alien3 (UK) Super Star Wars (US) All are complete with manuals, and interior tray. Some boxes are in better condition than others, but are fine. The question is, what's a fair price to ask for this as a bundle, I really have no idea of pricing of SNES stuff at the moment. I don't want to ask for something unreasonable and not be able to sell it, but at the same time I don't want to feel like I'm losing out. The cash will be going toward my daughter's school trip next summer. If anyone here fancies it, I'm happy to give first shout to someone on here and courier it to them (or if you want to come pick it up that would be also be awesome). Cheers!
