  1. I really want to order one of these but the importing (to the UK) horror stories are putting me off. What's the "real" total you expect to pay ordering one for UK delivery? Did anyone get one without paying import duty/tax??
  2. If you know someone affected by dementia, this'll have extra impact.
  3. I collect EDGE and RetroGamer nowadays but I have SuperPlay and various others as well. Agree with @Protocol Penguin about using backing boards and bags if you want to keep them "properly". I find the "new 2000AD" (size H) bags are a better fit for some of the bigger magazines - for example, EDGE is currently quite a bit smaller physically than RetroGamer but it's been a lot bigger in the past and I've had to switch bag sizes on and off to accommodate them. I do struggle to find the bigger Size H bags, have used an ebay seller in the past (JR Comics?).
  4. Anyone got a knight cover to sell (extra bonus if it's signed, lol)? I have the other three but couldn't find the knight cover out in the wild.
  5. Still collecting, all the way from Issue 1. Have pretty much everything, including extra all different covers, postcards, anniversary sets etc. Still missing a few - after a couple of the Destiny ones (#284) and a #309 (B-Bomb cover) so if anyone has them and wants to offer them, give me a PM
  6. I've got stuck with an annoying bug that's put me off playing it (PC version) - I've tried to transport back to my home base via the space port transporter thing and the game crashes out during the warp animation effect....every time. Is there an easy way to fix it? Googling shows it to be an issue but there doesn't seem to be an obvious fix. Really gutted because I was enjoying it but I can't be fussed farming away to get the warp cores to "manually" hyperspace home - I really was in it for the exploration and the procedurally-generated views and scenery rather than being into the actual proper game stuff (the grinding etc). Hoping they iron it all out in the next patch and I'll return to it then.
  7. Found a limited edition pack of Burt's crisps in my local LIDL....Chicken Tikka! I'm a big fan of Burt's crisps anyway (highly recommend the Devon Beef!) and the Tikka ones did not disappoint. Another excellent flavour and good overall quality as well. They often seem to come up cheap in my local LIDL but the "posher" supermarkets rarely stock them? More fool them I say!

    Jamiroquai

    I'm a big Jamiroquai fan (epecially for the earlier, proper funk, Stuart Zender bass stuff) and my heart sank when I heard Automaton for the first time. But, after a few listens, it has grown on me and I like the video as well. I just hope that they can revisit some of the funkier stuff and not disappear into Daft Punk territory too much - not that I don't like that but that's not the direction I'd want Jamiroquai to go, personally. Oh well, let's see what they come up with...

    No I'm still waiting for mine. My local post has history of damaging/losing it so I was going to put it down to that. Incidentally, if that does happen, you don't get a subscriber edition as a replacement (just an ordinary "retail" one).
  10. MD1 PSU works fine with a USA SNES and the SFC - I have both. I knocked up a little adaptor cable/plug to work with theMD1 PSU and the USA SNES (which has a "fatter" plug going into the console). On a possibly related note, I have noticed that my SFC with UFO8 (USB) cart is a bit dodgy (I get video glitching) but the SD2SNES is fine. My USA SNES doesn't seem to have any issues with anything so it could just be a UFO/SFC compatibility issue rather than a MD1 power one?

    Nate: Any special plans for the 300 edition? Please don't release 300 covers, my house can't take it...:)
  12. Been a while since I've been to this thread so apologies if I'm covering old ground but like all of you fellow crisp lovers, I've always had an ongoing search for the perfect salt and vinegar "stick" crisp to rival the original Chipsticks I remember as a kid (1980s). Back in the day, this title was comfortably owned by the Chipsticks brand (of course!) but in the modern era of lowered fat content and the like, I find branded Chipsticks too crunchy and lacking in taste and most importantly, without the satisfying "stuck-in-your-teeth" texture of the originals. I can now report that through an happy accident, I think I've discovered a worthy successor in the most unlikely of places...Sainsburys! The have their own-brand Salt and Vinegar Crunchy Sticks (blue packet, ~£1) and I've found these are really, really close to my (childhood memory) ideal. Good texture; slightly crunchy but with the classic melt-in-the-mouth (and subsequent) stick-to-the-teeth characteristics, good flavour (not too salty, not too strong vinegar) and as a "share" size bag, a good amount to dump in a bowl to be picked at through a decent gaming session or TV-based sporting event. I recommend eating two sticks at a time but obviously, the choice is yours based on your own stick-eating technique. Even beaver-style nibbling of the sticks from one end down to the fingers is encouraged if mess and noise isn't a distraction for those nearby. Well done, Sainsburys!
