    The limitations of Nintendo’s hardware is probably what allows them to come up with such creative gameplay and art styles that other developers are lacking these days. Instead of spending all their development time and resources into achieving high-res textures/graphics, they can instead create simple but creative art styles and free up more staff to create unique gameplay elements that make their games so creative and fun.

    Good to hear. I wouldn’t normally sub to a service with so few games, but they seem to be adding higher quality titles to the service recently, and the fact I can access Mario kart booster levels and the splatoon 2 expansion in addition to the old retro stuff makes it appealing enough to justify the £35 asking price.

    Does anyone know if the Nintendo Switch Online emulation is any good for Snes/N64 games? I gather they offer the full speed 60hz versions, and they have fixed some N64 issues since release. Just fancy a bit of wave race and 1080 snowboarding (when they eventually release it).
  4. Quick update: I tried to solder a bit of wire across the resistors but everything is so small and piddly that it didn’t work unfortunately. I’m not sure how most people could do this without specialist equipment like a thin soldering iron, and special thin gauge wire/flux. Instead I bought an OTG adaptor and am now powering the USB via that. The initial install was a bit panicky as you have to insert the USB directly into the current limited port on the console itself, but once it was complete I immediately switched to the OTG and all is working well. Had a quick go on Tekken 3 which now runs so much better at 60hz and with the blurry bi-linear filter turned off!
  5. cheers, I thought as much as even though I’ve bought a more powerful 5v 2amp plug, the current limiter is always going to throttle the usb stick regardless. I’ll get the soldering iron out this weekend and try not to cock it up! 😅
  6. Can anyone confirm if I need to perform the port 2 resistor soldering mod even when using a 'verified' USB stick for the latest Project Eris mod? People seem to suggest that if I use a Samsung FIT 128GB USB stick then it doesn't require doing any hardware soldering to remove the current limiter on the 2nd USB port. I presume that's because that particular Samsung USB stick requires a low power within the power range of the psclassic ports? Just wanted to double check, as I managed to completely corrupt the first Samsung USB stick I bought by powering the whole device with a 5v 1amp apple wall plug. As such, I've now ordered a 5v 2amp plug which is hopefully enough to power everything.
  7. Sometimes the QA people will point out various issues, but wether or not the devs take note and fix them is another issue entirely.
  8. I appreciate the guy’s effort, but transferring all the console’s bulk out into a metre long combined PSU and cooling supply doesn’t solve much. 😂 Interesting video though.
  9. Indeed, it’s nice to see drivers push the car hard despite their historic prestige. He looked a bit frustrated with himself afterwards, understandably so.
  10. Charles Leclerc has just fucked it and put his historic Ferrari in the wall. Looks like he was pushing it a bit considering it’s just parade laps
  11. yeah, I had assumed they would update automatically as well but they didn’t for me. still, at least everything is working now. I really like the football game mode from what I’ve played so far. It’s like a Rocket League lite.
  12. Had a quick go on bowling and badminton, both seemed really quite fun. Can’t seem to get tennis working properly though. I imitate the swing motion but my character throws the ball up but won’t actually hit it to serve. I reckon my 4 year old Joycons might need replacing. Edit: Updating the joycon controller software and recalibrating them has fixed the issue for me! Tennis now works perfectly! I’d highly recommend others doing the same in case they have similar issues as me.
  13. Very strange. Googling this shows people having the issue years ago but it seems random for people. I’ve been blasting times around Imola circuit for the last few weeks and nothing has been recorded at all. As bad as I am at racing simulators, I’ve definitely set a few valid laps I’m sure 😂 Maybe I’ll delete the game and reinstall to see if that fixes things…
  14. Does anyone else have issues with lap times not being recorded in single player mode? I’m playing on PS5 and have tried hot lap mode and practice mode, but it never seems to record my best lap times, nor does it seem to rack up any mileage on my player stats page… 🤔
  15. I'm hoping they will make it easy to upgrade from one tier to another, and back down again depending on what I want to play each month. For example I intend to stay on the Essential tier all year, but then upgrade to Extra for 1 month to try out Returnal, and then the following month revert back to essential tier once I've had my fill. If they can make that a seamless transition then they will get a bit more money out of me each time a new game hits the service.
