  1. Just wanted to say thanks to @CrashedAlex for the numerous drunk evenings entertainment with mates playing crash mode in Burnout 3.

    Yeah that was it! It was a while ago and never been a big fighters fan.

    Dreamcast is now 20 (in Japan)

    I picked one up late 2000. I was working in Game Meadowhall at the time and we had a great policy we could buy trade in products for the price traded in. Hence shenanigans giving people low ball prices for stuff we wanted! Anyway as the PS2 had been released around November we were getting loads of dreamcast trade ins and managed to pick up a barely used one for £50 (apologies to the chap trading in!) and then also got myself Sonic Adventure, Jet Set Radio, crazy taxi, rez and virtua tennis for buttons and later on MSR, PSO and Shenmue. It's probably in my top 3 machines I've owned and JSR is my 2nd favourite game of all time. I also remember after the PS2 came out Game were obviously trying to shift a load of dreamcast stock and so we were told to push it over the PS2 and even though the PS2 went on to blow it out of the water some of the initial releases for both consoles, soul calibur 2 springs to mind, looked loads better on the DC so we set up a side by side in store. Sadly it didn't work

  6. Shit I've followed this thread but I've bricked my cat. It's just standing there not moving in the kitchen. Help @dumpster I need to fix it before the wife finds out.
  7. I thought flashback had quite a reasonably long terminator - esque theme tune. Plus the end credits song is great too and fairly long!
  8. I'd love a CD32 but not paying the silly money they seem to go for!
  9. It's about bloody time

    A thought occurred to me, knowing the footballing gods idea of comedy, we're bound to get Madrid in our champions league group!

    Crap result last night but it was pretty much gone after Mo went off, but fuck it, we've had a bloody good season, played some of the most entertaining stuff I've seen in years and had this amazing champions league run. Plus we get to do it again all next season! Allez Allez Allez.

    Game Boy & GB Advance Appreciation Thread

    Currently looking for a nice retro modding project to cut my teeth on and realised I've got an old DMG01 gameboy with some screen lines missing that I'd like to fix, retro brite and pop a backlight in. I haven't soldered for years and seen that these bivert mods need a bit of soldering, so is this something I should attempt or will I end up killing it!
