  1. Assuming her brothers don’t want them I’ll get them home and create a list of what there is, the condition and then stick it up here. That way if anyone here wants any they can have them for the postage price. @Ste Pickford has first dibs on the ones mentioned if they’re there.
  2. Are old copies of 2000AD, presumably from the 80s worth anything to anyone? My father in law died recently and the missus found a stack of them the other day while clearing out stuff from the house. They’ll have belonged to her brothers but assuming they don’t want them are they worth doing anything with or should they just be tipped?
  3. Which decade did the rich not win exactly?
  4. I’ve no idea what the Dying Light games are so probably never. Horizon was alright. I quite fancy playing the new one but certainly not for £70. I’ll pick it up when it’s about £30 perhaps or on Sony’s ‘GamePass’. Elden Ring I’m quite tempted for on release so maybe then. GT7 is not my cup of tea at all. Far too realistic.
  5. Feel lucky that I got to visit Tokyo back in the early 2000s and spending several days in and around all the big Sega arcades. Row after row after row of Sega candy cabs hosting every arcade board you could think of all in fantastic condition and working perfectly. Showed what arcades could be and a far cry from the cigarette burns and broken controls of UK arcades. I’ve always wanted to go back some time but the chance has never presented itself again. It’s a shame, but I’ll never forget the time I was there.
  6. Yeah give us the ability to sell second hand digital games Ubisoft and then we’ll chat about NFTs eh? No? Thought not.
  7. I don’t think paying daft amounts for old boxes is any sillier than spending daft amounts on old cartridges personally. If you want the original feeling then the box and manual are just as much a part of that as the cartridge. Personally speaking I don’t think either are worth paying for. Neither do anything other than line the pockets of speculators. Everdrive and an SD card all the way for me.
  8. I’d love to give Returnal a go and I’ve got a PlayStation 5 sitting next to my TV ready to do so (along with a Switch and a Series X), but like fuck am I paying £70 for something I’m not 100% sure I’ll enjoy. If someone who’s as engaged with games to the level am isn’t willing to risk £70 on it then how can you expect the average game buyer who plays just COD or FIFA to give it a go? Stick it on GamePass though and soooo many more eyes and hands are gonna get a chance to give it a go. Many might bounce right off it I’m sure, but I’ve got to believe that it would result in way more people chomping at the bit for Housemarques next game. It’s got to be a positive surely?
  9. Ooh I dunno. I’d love an in-depth investigation into the world after the blip and after everyone returned. It’d be great. But then again I’ve always argued the case for a Star Wars documentary series that went into the logistics of building a Death Star so maybe that’s just me?
  10. I’ve just watched this. Seems I’m in the minority but I really enjoyed it a lot.
  11. Good on Microsoft I say. They’ve proven themselves to be very gamer friendly over the last few years. Perhaps Sony might be forced to improve their shocking customer service and back away from charging 70 quid a pop for their games. That can only be a good thing. Let’s make hay while the sunshine shines as the saying goes and enjoy the benefits that’s this brings. If in the future they turn evil then vote with your wallet. They’ve not got a monopoly on the air we breath or water we drink. It’s just video games and there are already more great ones out there than any of us will ever get the chance to play properly.
  12. My Super NT or Mega SG, I can't pick between them. One thing's for sure, if I had the bailiffs at the door and I had to sell off gaming items my PS5 / Xbox Series X / Switch would all be on their way to CEX way before I got rid of either of those. I imagine that when I finally getting around to building a MiSTer that'll be joining them too.
  13. Happy to hear that the massively over inflated ego and absolute fruit cake these days, Maajid Nawaz has been given the boot.
  14. Has that been improved since launch with a firmware update maybe? I’m sure it used to nearer 30w. Either way it equates to a couple of months GamePass at least and by the time I’ve sat down and got comfy it’s ready to go even in the power saving mode.
