    Modern Retro Handheld Game Players

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I fully agree that a DS Lite is the best way to play them, but he likes the idea of 'retro' styled hardware and would like a specific GBA player. I know, it's silly, but if there was a cheap enough knock off I was going to humour him and consider it. That GBA macro is a seriously cool bit of kit though, I have to say!

    Apollo... 3?! Assuming you mean Apollo 11 ;-) I got this as it was cheap and I like a bit of spacey stuff. I'd say it's worth it at that price. The graphics are somewhat low-poly, which hurts it a bit, and it has flat textures in a lot of places. What it does well is a sense of scale (you stand beside the rocket and look up for example) and giving you a real feeling of how it must have been like - which for this type of software you have to consider it job done. Quite something to be standing in the little capsule and looking at all the controls, then craning your neck to look out the window and see the Earth. What it does really well is to use the actual audio from the mission, and play it at the appropriate points. There is interactivity, you get to try to docking and landing. You also get to walk around on the moon - again low poly graphics hurt it a bit, but it really does give you a sense of what it was like to be there, in a way that you just couldn't get in any other form.

    Are there any half-decent neo-retro consoles that play original GBA cartridges? My kid has got into retro stuff and wants to play some of my old games. He only really dips in and out of them, so the quality doesn't have to be amazing, but a backlight is a must, obviously. I'm thinking of some sort of equivalent of the GB Boy for GBA.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Far Harbor was pretty good though. Seemed like they had learnt from some of their mistakes in the main game.

    How long did you leave it on the charger for? It needs to be a surprisingly long time if you have let the battery totally discharge.

    According to EG, the cable is legit https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2018-marseille-mcable-gaming-edition-review But I have to concur it is nowhere near worth that money

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Sounds like there is nothing much here for solo players. That RPS video where they describe a detective quest as starting in a terminal in a funfair, sending you to a terminal in a post office, then finally to a terminal in the perpetrators home where you read his confession is just the most depressing reduction of the questing system to its barest bones. Their radiant quests have always been like that, but now that seems to be all there is.

    Digitiser:The Show: Episode 2 out now!

    Well, to be fair, anyone playing Rocket League for the first time is going to be similar. He did well to even hit the ball!

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    This just sounds so much like the kind of tacked-on multiplayer mode that you would find deep in the menus of Fallout 4, and which you would play once and forget about forever.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    What's really amazing to me is how, for Journey mode, in terms of gameplay speed is literally the only variable they have to play with. The fact that each theme seems so fresh just shows what amazing alchemy is going on with the audiovisuals.

    It has all the indie stuff that people go ga-ga about on the Switch, but slagged off the Vita for. C'est la vie! Though even the indies are drying up now. There's still an absolute lifetimes worth of great games on it though.

    Yeah, no worries. I did a search and realised there are system settings menus to calibrate VR tracking stuff, maybe I need to go through them properly. I'll give that a go.

    The Moves are great in Rush of Blood, you've got your usual janky game arms but they are somehow YOUR arms. On that subject, why do the Moves keep showing that impossible to pass calibration screen when I turn them on? It tells you to remove all other light sources and put the orb into the circle, but you have to get ridiculously close for it to match, and it doesn't seem to register anyway. I just have to press O to back out, and it seems to work anyway. What's the 'proper' way of doing it?

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Gee, thanks, lol. I don't use the phone app, so whether it's moot to you or not is neither here nor there. Listen. the fact you guys aren't jazzed about YT on Switch doesn't bother me. And I could even understand the argument that they shouldn't have wasted time on it (not that I agreed, but I could understand it). I just find it amusing that the begrudgery continues even AFTER it is here!
