  1. Had a bit of an episode just now after buying a PS1 Classic for 25 bones. I found myself throwing a Snes mini and Nes mini in with it at the checkout. I'll be back in here to mod the arse out of it once it's delivered. Oh, and I can't do this mini console thing by half, I'll be getting the MD and PCE minis when they launch. What's that C64 one like*. Lol. *Scrap that, just bought one of them an all for £35.00. I was supposed to go on an expensive night out which got cancelled so I'm spending the money I've saved on some fun tech for the bedroom TV.
  2. I've been a PC user who's built my own machines going back 20+ years but it's only these last couple that I've really took the PC's Swiss army knife towards gaming to the next level. It's absolutely mind blowing the amount of quality games you can run, even on what would be thought of as low spec these days. Saying that, anything from the past 6-7 years has grunt that would have blown minds back in the day. Love the stuff your'e doing, only had a quick scan over mind. I'm set for running the emulators but would be great to read a few tips on the software side. I fancy a bit of redream but am I right in thinking it can't run Windows CE games? Any plans to have a bash at Supermodel? Keep it up.
  3. I think I'd been dosed by Dr Mario when I typed that.
  4. I have a similar cinema trip memory as above and was roughly the same age, though the film was Star Wars around the time of its UK release. I always (even to this day and having seen it many many many times) have a vibe with the final shot of Han, Luke and Chewbacca taking a little bow. I know they don't but for some reason I can see myself watching that happen then the cinema screen curtain going down immediately and the lights coming up and moving from our seats. I know they don't bow and although the cinema did have a curtain that would open and close I can't see it doing so straight after that final scene. It's obviously a bit of reality mixed with fantasy, perhaps I jumbled it all up with some panto or something but it's so vivid, even now. In fact even though the last time I watched that scene was only a few days ago and for probably the hundredth time I still just fired it up to check. Yeah, still no bow and deffo no closing curtains lol.
  5. No Beatles And no Chemical Brothers. I haven't seen this film. I have no intention to. Well unless I'm completely hungover one Sunday and it starts showing on a TV channel I'm watching and it would be too painful to reach over for the remote, but...it and this thread set me off down the rabbit hole of what if? Y'know the knock on effect of which music may have not come about in their absence. There are a lot of bands/artists who claim without the Beatles they just wouldn't be, or at least sound completely different. The Chemical Brothers for one, being totally enamoured with Tomorrow Never Knows etc. There are obviously many, many others who make the claim, no Beatles, no us. As stated, shit film, interesting concept.
  6. Was feeling a bit down yesterday, fuck knows why. Anyway, had a shit nights sleep and woke up way too early, for some reason I felt like a bit of Star Wars may lift the mood. Just watched both the battle of Yavin upto the medal ceremony and the battle of Endor (y'know for the space bits, but to be honest I have no problem with the Ewoks, they did have rebel help and a hijacked AT ST afterall) and fuck me do I now feel up for the day. No other films can perk me up like Star Wars can. It may be a bit sad but fuck it, whatever works. The force is strong this Monday. Bring on the day.
  7. I always loved the abandoned castle and areas of Ico. A fabulous yet lonely and melancholic vibe guiding Yorda around there. Plus the flourishes of life in amongst the stone. The greenery and odd bits of wildlife couldn't overcome the feel of ancient abandonment. Glints of sun here and there. Man I feel like firing it up now and playing for an hour, it's guaranteed to make me all wistful for the first time I played it. It has that effect.
  8. Right, I've went and bought one of those over the top but comfy looking swivel gaming chairs. I've mainly bought the thing to use with my steering wheel setup and GT and Forza but I was pushed over the edge when I remembered people mentioning using one whilst in VR. I've read several things were people have claimed having the ability to swivel etc really helps with motion sickness. Hopefully this is what helps me get right into my PSVR. My PS4 is stuffed with great VR games that are thrilling to play but can bring on the dreaded nausea. I've tried a couple of things to help get my legs, anti nausea pills, playing a little every day to try and acquaint myself with the immersion but in the end it would still get a hold. The last game I played was Wipeout VR and it was incredible, fucking awesome and the type of experience I'd hoped for for over 20 years...but it blew my head off after 10 minutes and it's scared me off playing. I'm not going to give up and like I say I can game comfortably in a good few games but certain titles send my head spinning. Yeah I could just except it and only play games that I'm fine with but that thrill of Wipeout or GT with a force feedback wheel is something I really, really want to experience, and not be buzzing one minute then spinning the next. So swivel chair is coming and I've ordered some ginger tea.
  9. I have been eating nothing but bananas, prunes and tinned soup all week, bar a meat and potato pasty on Monday which was a bad idea. This was due to feeling ill all week. I woke up very late this afternoon due to this sickness, whatever it was, and I was starving. I felt like I hadn't ate for a week...well erm, yeah. Anyway I had a few things in but fancied some real junk carbs and sugars and well.. And no it wasn't too much (got loads left tbh) and it didn't make me feel ill again. Was just what the Dr ordered.
  10. Haha, love the stream of consciousness as you play. Good stuff.
  11. I've just had this guy's impressions of the demo show up on my Youtube and fucking hell he makes it sound like the shit. I bought the original back in the day but I never really got into it but seeing this chap talk about the game so enthusiastically and seeing the insane visuals it's definitely jumped up a few places on my must play list. He may have been a little hyperbolic but it was actually great to see someone be so positive about a modern game.
  12. Does Virtua Racing have its own thread? My love for the game goes back to the dawn of my addiction to games and playing on my Switch whilst sipping Rum this afternoon has been stupendous. It was an epiphany back in my pre game bothered days and playing it here, today, on my little beautiful handheld has been such a fucking joy. It looks so simple, so unsophisticated but my god does it demand a deftness of touch and concentration. Trying to come 1st on all but the beginner track is a lesson in suss your surroundings. A lift off the accelerator here, a brake there. Stunning, and more importantly, fun stuff. I've also just finally twigged the great Power Drift over on 3DS as being a rollercoaster ride as much as a traditional racer for some more fantastic Sega arcade fun. Great afternoon.
  13. I find the DS4 great for my PS4 playing but subliminally I'm relieved my Xbox one controller seems to be the de facto for PC gaming when firing something up.
  14. Hylian you are posting on RLLMUK. We are all Dinosaurs who remember RRP. I'm a Diplodocus for example. Texan bars.
  15. I wonder how they arrived at the name Pufnstuf? I remember watching the film at some point but the series was before my time. I'm sure I've watched a documentary on the Krofft's and I think there was mention of LSD influences and probably some stuff getting puffed. As for the this film, again, it looks utter shit.
