  1. This x 1000!!! If you’ve never used one, you have zero idea of how truly awful and unreliable they were/are. Everything else just pales in to insignificance in comparison.
  2. Adventure - Atari 2600 Defender - Arcade Strider - Arcade Elite - BBC B Disc Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe - PC
  3. Yeah, inside it was a bit layer upon layer of black plastic trays, but overall some thought had gone into the box itself, which was a classy touch.
  4. Mine just turned up via DPD! Nice packaging
  5. The one I got for my daughter in October, via a Curry’s code, took 7 days from going to the shop with the code till it arrived. 2 weeks seems to be a more common timescale though.
  6. I absolutely loved this, it was right up my street! I enjoyed it so much, that upon completion I bought both the previous 2 instalments and played them through back to back on Series X. Think I’d put House of Ashes top of the pile, then Little Hope, and finally Medan…. Although it’s a close call for me between the top 2. Really looking forward to the next instalment.
  7. Yeah, sorry, my bad. I meant it’s a shame it’s not available digitally, I don’t do physical games anymore…. But may make an exception for this one!
  8. I bought FEAR 2 (and all dlc) after FEAR 3 was removed from sale. Thankfully, I nabbed 3 before it was taken off the store. Sadly, the original (and best) hasn’t been available at all for ages
  9. Indeed it was on there last week, but now it’s no longer available to buy digitally on the UK or US stores
  10. Picked up Ridge Racer 6 and Raiden IV from the US Xbox store, simply turned the region to US to run them on my UK Series X. Both are lovely, but a real shame they’re not available on the UK store. Was also a bit gutted that F.E.A.R. and King Kong are not available digitally…. Oh well, can’t have everything, I suppose.
  11. I redeemed my code and paid on the 17th and the console arrived for pick up yesterday, so fingers crossed that it’s pretty imminent for yours also
  12. @JoeKYep, got a call from Currys at 15:00 today to say it had arrived. Picked it up and one very happy daughter (many thanks to @SeanRfor the code)
  13. @SeanR I’ll take one please, if that’s ok? My daughter is desperate for one for her birthday.
  14. Game/DPD have confirmed my delivery for tomorrow! Metroid Dread a-go-go!!
  15. The Dead Zone (1983): Christopher Walken, in the role he was born to play as a crippled psychic, leads a wonderful all star cast (Herbert Lom, Martin Sheen, Brooke Adams, Tom Skerritt), in a super natural tale of lost love, right wing psychopaths and a world in turmoil. In my opinion, the best Stephen King adaptation and it is helped immeasurably by the practical effects of the time. I saw an interview with Walken, in which he confirm that the scene with him lying in bed and surrounded by a raging fire, was literally just that! If you haven’t seen this, go watch it! The book is good, but the movie (with its subtle, understated acting and wonderful direction by David Cronenberg) is better.
  16. Got a console and case, but needed to refresh a billion times due to the shipping error message.
  17. I used credit card, my deposit for a 512gb just (finally) went through. It’s a total pain though, even when in it’s in the cart and then even when you get the all clear to pay…. You have to keep trying
  18. Rather surprisingly, Argos preorders aren’t that hard to cancel. They’re a bit more long winded than Amazon (obviously), but all you need to do is select the chat option on the website, give them your order number and details etc, and the order will be cancelled and your money refunded.
  19. Still available in both colours for home delivery at Smyths: https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/search/?text=Switch+oled+neon My son has had the Amazon window up all day and neither colour has been available yet.
  20. Smyths still have preorders available for neon system (home delivery) at the mo’. However, majority of retailers haven’t even started their preorders yet.
  21. Smyths have reopened preorders for home delivery on white and neon systems, at time of typing…
  22. Yes, it is indeed a T-Rex and there’s a Compsognathus at the bottom of the pic too!!! I bloody hope this means a Dino Crisis remake or ‘anything’ !!!!!!
