  1. So as I posted in the car lot /loft find thread I once again have my hands on a Nintendo 64. Luckily I have three official controllers but two have fairly loose sticks. So, my question is: how good are the replacement sticks you can pick up on eBay and is there a recommended replacement stick and failing that what is the deal on third party controllers - are there any good ones?
  2. You know what I’ve just been trying to get up to speed on your treasure trove thread. Any good n64 bits still left?
  3. So a trip into my parents loft and I found this, my brothers n64. He doesn’t want it. Result! I sold my absolutely mint boxed console a few years back with all the games you’d want all boxed and mint so this is a bit of a downgrade but still. A few questionable games so I need to source wave race, pilot wings and 1080 but heh it’s still a great find. He has some nasty third party ram expansion but luckily still had the old jumper and cover so it’s back to usual.
  4. The one console I regret selling more than any is the n64. I was in pal land despite having a us SNES but I had an amazing collection of boxed games. This weekend I was sorting some bits out in my parents log and found my brothers old n64 up there. I just now need to “rescue” it from the dust. Sadly he does seem to have chucked the game boxes though.
  5. Not a chance. I can happily afford it but I’m a busy middle aged bloke with commitments. Just stay a few years behind generations and you can have a field day as long as you don’t mind that there is shinier smoother out there. I’m still ploughing through my PS4 backlog and bought a wii u last year with most of the best games for it so I have plenty to keep me busy. If you can make your peace with the shinies all is ok. Then a few years from now I’ll probably bite! That said as I posted in the another thread factoring in inflation I was spending more in real terms on mega drive games i
  6. This £70 is bobbins. I got a thorough bollocking for spending £39 on desert strike around 1992/3 which in today’s money according to the BoE inflation calculator is around £82. Just a counter point.
  7. I remember being sat in a 5th year maths lesson doodling cars and racing circuits and chatting cars with a friend and planning how amazing a PlayStation f1 game would be just enforce the console was released. We decided it should even have Murray Walker commentating. I absolutely loved that game and drove Interlagos goodness knows how many times.
  8. Heads up people - a wii u system update is out - check those DNS settings!
  9. DCS is a proper rabbit's hole. It is immensely technical as you're not just learning to fly and navigate with maybe if you go serious in FS a flight management computer. Now you have weapons systems, radars with half a dozen different modes each, warning systems, tactical communications, steer points. It is a massive learning curve but as good a flying experience as you'll get if it is you bag. I came into it when it was just an A10 and I had previously played around with falcon 4.0 which was still pretty serious but DCS is a massive time sink that I didn't have time for. Check
  10. Absolutely. Pick it up and play. No more 10 hour tutorials.
  11. I absolutely love world. It’s a fun pick up and play play former where guy can run in different directions. What’s not too love? I always struggled to really enjoy the galaxy games. I know, sorry. I appreciated them and recognise they’re great but just didn’t love them. I think I need to give them another go.
  12. I Good question. I can hack waiting a few minutes for it to load, have a 4K tv and saved £100. I also wanted to play RDR2 in 4K and not 900p as well.
  13. I had a real downer about this a while back and even posted to that effect here. I then struggled to find a driving game I enjoyed more and other than gt sport which is obviously a different kettle of fish I had to get back into this so re bought a one x and am back loving it. I also bought FH3 before it got de listed as well and am glad I did and think I enjoy it even more.
  14. I bought a WiiU having skipped it and not owning a switch so for me it’s been a feast of MK8, Super Mario 3D world, BOTW, Pikmin 3 and Bayonetta 2. Talk about a great set of games to keep me busy. I also completed and absolutely loved The Last Of Us remastered which I thought was stellar.
  15. Just wrapped up TLOU remastered. I know I know but given that this is the second game I have completed this year this is a big thing here. Add this to UC4 which I wrapped earlier this year I guess I have found my game type as I usually play driving games. The game I completed before these two was Modern warfare on the 360! Anyway, what a game. There were so many simply amazing parts and while the set pieces were just incredible for me the parts where you just wondered around ruined houses getting a picture of the lives that were lived there got me the most. I guess I should take on
