  1. Don't know where in Northern Ireland had one, but there used to be one in Dr Quirkey's on O' Connell St in Dublin.
  2. I've never seen it either. I've just never felt like going out of my way to watch it and it's never been placed in front of me. It starts to feel like maybe subconscious avoidance at some stage though when you haven't seen some mega blockbuster and years have passed since it came out.
  3. It's generally just a bit of dirt/grease built up under the button on the metal connector that the rubber touches when you push it. Can usually be solved in a couple of minutes by opening the pad and cleaning the metal under the buttons using a cotton bud and isopropyl. I bought 4 "broken" sfc pads last week, 2 of which had unresponsive start buttons and a quick clean of the metal under the buttons (I can't think of the correct term) had them all good as new (in terms of responsiveness).
  4. Still not seeing how that precludes them from being punk, or why you chose to namedrop SAW and not any other musician/producer, but fair enough..
  5. Why do you think that early 2000s amateur newgrounds(and other sites) browser games aren't punk at all and are instead like "SAW" ?
  6. Oh, right Never heard of them. Just looked it up on wikipedia and now I have even less idea what the similarity to edgy newgrounds garbage made by untrained amateurs is than when I thought you meant the low budget edgy horror movie.
  7. The movie? Not sure I get the comparison but I haven't watched it.
  8. All those utterly shit edgelord browser games on sites like newgrounds in the early 2000s.
  9. Nex Machina is one of the most perfectly crafted gameplay experiences ever and my game of the generation. As much as I like them (the following will sound quite negative but actually I'm a fan of Japanese shmups...), I'd take Nex Machina over the entire (often interchangeable if you aren't a hardcore fan of scoring systems) post 1993ish Japanese shmup library, particularly the Cave stuff which may as well be reskins of DoDonPachi with increasingly iffy artstyles as far as the non-hardcore are concerned, because the gameplay is just more exciting and it's easier for a "normal" playe
  10. I recommend Rise: Race the Future on Steam and Switch and I know there's at least one other person on the forum who's played and enjoyed it!!!
  11. Considering the userbase of this thing is pretty much entirely fairly dedicated retrogamers, the available cases are surprisingly uninspired/bland. I know the contents are more important than the case, but hopefully we'll see some more interesting case options in future. I'd love to be able to get an 80s home computer style case (with working keyboard) or just something with a bit more charm or relevance to retro computing/gaming hardware designs than the charmless little plastic/aluminium boxes we currently have to choose from.
  12. I much prefer the original games' pixel art to the graphics of this. To be honest, this type of artstyle in updates of pixel games does kind of give off the sort of "we cheaped out/don't have pixel artists anymore" vibe that the psp era 2.5D games like the psp GnG, Megaman X, Castlevania etc did, but that might just be a matter of preference. That said, this artstyle is definitely preferable to that 2.5D stuff.
  13. This is one reason why I can't quite relate to the xbox gamepass hype on gaming forums. Most of us seem to have pretty shocking backlogs of unplayed games that we actually decided we were interested enough in to pay for. There are more games out there that I'm actually interested in than I have time to play. Games can generally be picked up dirt cheap if you wait even a few months so a monthly subscription to temporarily access a selection of games from Microsoft that might have a few you want to play but not others you want to play doesn't quite strike me as the deal of the centur
  14. Seems I spoke too soon. Humble Phil will be humbly learning from this thanks to all the great xbox fans. Thanks for helping him learn that doubling the price actually ISN'T what the fans want, it's an easy mistake to make.
