    Does this Sinden lightgun work with consoles then? I had a quick look at the site but couldn't see how it interfaces with various consoles or even which ones it works with (if any). Also, can you just buy one anywhere or is only available via messing about with crowdfunding?

    I was under the impression it's PC only going by their IndieGoGo page and the Linus video, I was hoping the same though:

    Does anyone know if that Homepass router stuff still works?


    I'd like to get the puzzle pieces I never got. 


    I imagine it's probably easier to get the remaining pieces with custom firmware now, that's what I eventually ended up doing.

  3. Speaking of the merchandise, I imported the US edition that had the plasma lamp almost 10 years ago and only within the past year made use of the lamp with my new desk...only to find yesterday the plasma/gas suddenly disappeared so only the blue LED's work. There's already a blue only LED switch so they work the same way now! Totally gutted though as I remember paying a shitload for the FedEx tax and the hassle to get it imported as they didn't ship to the UK.

    A bit let down by (much more spoilery):

    The ending. At the end of ep 1, Natasha says she's the only one that makes it out alive? Does this mean a second series?



    I pondered that too, it felt a bit open-ended for the finale.

  5. I'm willing to give it another viewing for the benefit of the doubt, it didn't keep me invested and I couldn't help but have it as background noise whilst I did other stuff and looking every now and again at what was going on. I think even with multiple viewings I would still put this at the bottom of my MCU list.

    This is mental. How did you play any game that required the Z button? Stretch a finger across round the back? 


    You took the most ergonomic, comfortable and precise way of playing 3D games in that era and made it torturous. 

    Doesn't seem that convoluted surely?



    (not my hands btw) - the fingers on the right hand can still reach the Z-trigger, I guess the standard method of the left hand in the middle never felt comfortable to me.


    Either that or this was an alternative...



  7. Sorry, another vote here for the N64 pad. I bring this up because I dusted off my N64 the other day to try out my new Everdrive and I completely don't miss it at all. I've never, ever held it the proper way either yet never found it uncomfortable with my left thumb stretched across the analogue stick, to me it was my natural way of playing it.


    I recently bought the wireless Brawler 64 pad and it's a HUGE difference! Not to mention it feels so much lighter. It felt like a long time coming for a decent wireless controller for it.

  8. I just finished the last 3 episodes this afternoon and felt a bit slightly underwhelmed by this as well. I can't help but feel there was a Covid separation going on by how they were filming things. I felt like he filmed certain US sections whilst he did "What we did in the Shadows" and the other "US" parts within the UK. I wasn't quite sure what they were going for it yet I'm still compelled to see another series if it surfaces.

  9. I'm certain I recall seeing someone make a post a few years ago of a link that had good quality videos of previous Gamesmaster episodes available to download. I've tried doing searches on here but I can only see the archive.org ones and I don't remember it being those. I thought I had them downloaded but none of my archived drives seem to have them anywhere. Does the link still exist?

  10. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I felt it was a reboot done in the right way and made me think back to how I used to react to GamesMaster challenges on TV back in the day. A good length of time to boot also!


    How does it work for the licensing of showing games though? I remember Dara O'Brien's Go 8-Bit had that issue didn't it?

    Any ideas on who the katana-wielding character at the very end of the trailer might be?

    I thought it might be Jeanne? Seemed to fit right with the blonde style hair and the fact that she was the other Umbra Witch that changed her style in the same way Bayonetta did.

    Really funny episode again. I think this has been the most consistent Partridge show he's ever done.


    Wasn't there a theory that this guy is MIchaels (from IAP) brother? And when Alan asks his where he got the tooth badge he says 'from Michael'. 



    Didn't he say it was from his "mate Michael"? I had to play it back as it was one of those double take moments...
