  1. Thanks for all the helpful replies, looks like Doom it is.
  2. Doom or Wolfenestein 2 on he current sale? I personally don't play fps games any more as they tend now to give me motion sickness. My boys do play them a fair bit especially fortnight and splattoon so wondering which of these two older school shooters to pick up for them in the sale. Already got Crysis which they seemed to think was pretty good.

    Playing the konami arcade classics pack on switch. Great fun but can't believe how hard the games were, the c lack of rapid autofire and the primary and secondary weapons being on separate buttons was crippling me till I worked out here were remapping and autofire options in the menu. Much more playable now.

    Nintendo have confirmed the £31 fee is to replace my pro controller not repair it. This will come with a 1 year warranty. Seems a poor deal as the first one broke within 2 years.....wouldn't I be better off putting the money towards a 3rd party controller that doesn't come with Nintendo's 'seal of quality' which this generation translates to a 'seal of inferiority' Interested in views / experiences of other pro controller owners.

    Nintendo Switch

    My 4 joy cons and pro controller are with nintendo for repair due to stick drift, sent in two separate packages all joy cons together and the pro separately. They are repairing the joy cons without mentioning any charge but for the pro controller their email states "Our engineers have inspected your Switch Pro-controller and found damage due to Circle Pad calibration fault. Under our warranty policy we do not cover the cost of the repair for damaged items. A payment of £31.00 is required for us to complete the repair." Now I bought the switch arroind 2 and a half years ago and the pro controller around 6 months after that so it probably is out of warranty (and I wouldn't be able to locate the receipt anyway) but do think them asking for £31 to repair a calibration fault is a bit rich especially when I compare this to my GameCube, wii, wii u, controllers that are all still working absolutely fine. I know if I factor in the joy cons its only about 6quid per repaired item but really grates that I'm paying for them manufacturing shit peripherals this generation and a far cry from the old days when you never touched 3rd party peripherals with a barge pole because they weren't a patch on Nintendo's own products.

    Thanks for the advice, will perhaps stick with playing through the recently acquired konami arcade classics and also revisiting dragonblaze for now.

    Jamestown or Raiden directors cut on my switch? Both on sale but even so Raiden is still about half the cost of Jamestown, graphics on Raiden look a bit too too hi res, blurry and dare I say it boring? I love shoot em ups but am not actually very good at them but do get the occasional itch that I try to scratch, last played Raiden properly on my jaguar decades back.
  9. Amazing news.....literally been waiting decades for this to be available at home. In Mame on my PCs and Wii screen size was never entirely right and on the phone the awful touchscreen kills the gameplay.
  10. How can we try to get Hamster to release Taoplans 'Outzone' as part of its arcade archives?
  11. Scramble and Salamander are amazing within that collection. Best 4 quid I've spent in some time. Have picked up metal slug x in the half price sale am wondering if it's also worth picking up atomic robokid ?
  12. Anyone in the UK fitting the Bennvenn screens to lynx consoles for users?

    Thanks for the great recommendation, got mine ordered Friday on a lightening deal for £18 arrived Saturday and seems a great controller. Can now send my pro and two sets of joycons to nintendo for repair.
  14. Just added myself and the Mrs details on the spreadsheet, she's playing daily for a couple of hours, I might get a look in once or twice a week. I can't recall which of you lovely forumites were on our friends lists back in the days of the DS game but she'd welcome any adds.
  15. Huntdown looks great.
