  1. Amiga Appreciation Thread

    Oh I agree, there's no need for one. I never had one as a kid though so I kind of want to right a "wrong".
  2. Amiga Appreciation Thread

    Thanks, I'll have a gander. I quite fancy a CRT for them too but I was looking for a 1084 years ago with no luck and I can't imagine they're any more numerous now.
  3. Amiga Appreciation Thread

    Is anyone using a none standard, newer PSU with their Miggy and if so which one? I'm sending my 500 and 1200 off for repairs/recaps today and it's probably a good idea to replace the dodgy old PSU at the same time.
  4. Amiga Appreciation Thread

    Is it C64s they have a possibility of breaking?
  5. Xbox Game Pass (Subscription Service)

    I optimistically signed up for this yesterday forgetting that I've got a shiiiiiiiiite net connection. Currently 60% into a 100gb Halo 5 download after 18 hours. I doubt I'll renew. Nice idea though, if you're living with a modern network infrastructure.
  6. PlayStation VR

    The throwing is a bit weird. It's more accurate if you sort of push things towards where you want them to go.
  7. That's a day one purchase for me, assuming I can afford it, which I most certainly won't be able to. It's pretty telling that they've kept the price to themselves for now.
  8. After my Rift broke I've been holding out for some sort of announcement like that before buying a new one. I'm a little bit excited!
  9. That's a Pickford game isn't it? I remember it being the only Gizmondo game I was interested in playing.
  10. Amiga Appreciation Thread

    This is kinda cool. The prototype A1200 CD add on to turn it into a CD32. I never knew this was a thing, or at least supposed to be a thing if history was a bit different, and I would have loved one.
  11. Atari 2600 Appreciation Thread

    I still have a fondness for these things even though I was a bit too young to really get it when I had one. I had the woodgrain model as my first console, given to me as a hand me down in 1990 when I would have been 4. I can only remember having Pitfall, Superman, Combat and that really janky version of Pacman but I'm sure there were more. It probably ended up in the bin when the Amiga 500 joined the household, unfortunately. I tried playing Superman again recently...well maybe 5 years ago but that's relatively recently, and it could almost be a surrealist art masterpiece. I understood none of it so I'm not sure how I enjoyed it as a 4 year old. The bright, chirpy sound chip is still drilled into me as what video games sound like even after all this time and I still enjoy a bit of 2600 inspired chip music.
  12. Call of Duty WWII

    I don't mind that sort of thing really since the stuff was barely used back then but it existed. I didn't mind all the prototype stuff in BF1 either though. Are there gun camos in this? I haven't seen any hot pink MP40s yet but I'd draw the line at that. The animated tags/banners/whatevers are tacky though. The ones of the guns firing give me a geocities vibe.
  13. Call of Duty WWII

    I ran through the campaign in one sitting while waiting for the patch to install (finished with 20% to go, thanks Sheffield internet) and it was....alright? It's certainly not very memorable and still has that old CoD issue of not really making you feel you've achieved anything but walk from a to b and watched something happen on the way. There seemed to be something a bit off with the sound a lot of the time where it kinda felt half finished. There's one particular big, noisy set piece with a train that would have sounded insane if the Battlefield guys had done it but it was pretty unsatisfying here. Still, I bought it because of a hankering for the multiplayer so it's no big deal. But that's down so...great.
  14. The state of game retail in the UK

    It came out of pretty much nowhere too. I'd been buying from the Sheffield store for over a decade and as far as I know it was the last good game shop in South Yorkshire. The staff were sound and knew their stuff, prices were reasonable (by high street standards) and a they had a proper retro collection. Won't be seeing their like again. : (

    Fair point.
