  1. There's usually a plentiful supply of DSs on Facebook Marketplace. Sold one myself on there yesterday.
  2. @Spartan thanks for sharing. How are you finding the boot sales in Covid times? Any caution amongst buyers or sellers? Any new protocols? I'm itching to get out there but really want to wait for my second jab (and warmer early mornings tbh).
  3. It was at the Shaw Trust shop in Thame, Oxon. Posh area, one of the few that accepts electricals. They are one of those with a glass cabinet for the 'collectibles' but this was just on the bric a brac shelf next to it. I should add this was about 10 yrs ago and so has indeed so far turned out to be my greatest find this century. I posted to show that gaming stuff does indeed surface, even super rare stuff. Like antiques or anything else rare and of value it really is just pot luck about being in the right place at the right time.
  4. Just seen a 'press release' about this on Facebook. Opens 4 June, sounds like a South Midlands version of Arcade Club. Link here. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=745508359419395&id=577845826185650 Anyone local (or otherwise) know anything more? It's 15 mins from me
  5. New Sparks single! 'Your Fandango'. https://youtu.be/eVxnnyvpqr0
  6. My best ever charity shop pickup - £1. Luckily the price sticker peeled off without damaging the box. There appears to be a similar one in worse condition that sold on ebay recently for £580.
  7. Agreed. Definitely has that 'one more go' factor. Impressed with it as a freebie.
  8. First genuine question. One of the NPCs in the hub (?) says (paraphrasing) "don't even think about taking on a monster quest unless you are a total nut job. Stick to harvesting mushrooms". Is this misdirection, humour, or serious advice?
  9. Thanks. Yes, spent almost as much time reading as I did playing, or so it seemed. Dear Nintendo, that's why we used to like reading the paper manual on the bus on the way home from the shops!
  10. That's me. It's been an overwhelming succession of useful info, NPCs, menus, sub menus and multi function button presses. I don't even know if I should be taking on monster quests alone or online with an online 'squad'. I got as far as taking on the first 1 star monster hunt on my own but failed several times. Its clear there's something special waiting but its been a tough first few hours.
  11. @MikeBeaver was kind enough to offer to look out for Minidisc stuff for me in the upcoming Car Boot Sale season, in response to my Wanted post on this very forum. Which set me wondering what we are likely to see this season. After a year of lockdown with no outlets other than FB Marketplace, Shpock, Gumtree etc to sell, I'm hoping this might be a bumper season. I'm hoping to see: - XBox One & PS4 collections - Silly cheap 360 / PS3 games - the odd Switch title if the traders don't get them first - maybe some 3DS stuff - Unboxed Amiibo - Lots
  12. I've a huge collection of amiibo, all sealed. Starting tomorrow, some are being sold to fund a new monitor. £50 plus for something stashed in the loft is too much to turn down.
  13. My RG350M seems kaput. I've hardly used it since I got it last year, played some MAME a couple of days ago and after about 10 mins it just shut off. Thought it might have run out of charge but left it plugged overnight and nothing. Then all of a sudden it was back, played some Tetris on NES and after 5 mins it shut off again. Rinse and repeat and it won't turn on at all now. Anyone on here able to help? Gutted because it's a lovely machine, still mint and I'd really like to use it more. It's too good to just bin
  14. I did that same area last night. Fighting her a second time was a pain, but not as annoying as the realisation it was going to go to 4x. Still not massively enjoying the game but too far in now to pack it in. Coming off the back of the twin epics of DQXI and Demons Souls, I guess this perhaps isn't quite the change of pace I probably needed.
  15. Well I can't even get under 13m 30secs, nor see any way of going any faster without sliding off into the trees. It's like that on every track I play. A rare example of a game genre I'd love to be good at but no matter how many times I play, I just seem to get worse. There's something fundamentally wrong with my driving, obviously. Hey ho, can't win them all. I still appreciate the game for what it does and I'm genuinely in awe of the times you guys have set. Just put me down as DNF
  16. Scouring Facebook marketplace is still yielding a few gems. Picked up Bloodborne and the hardback collectors edition guide for £15. The box was standard but the disc was the GOTY version. The books a bit worn at the edges but is nice to own.
  17. Same here. I love the idea of competition in principle but whenever I play the game it feels like I'm trying to control Bambi on ice in the dark. And that's on tarmac in good daylight.
  18. I put a bit of time in on 1943 last night, managed to break through the 140,000 minimum requirement for the global leaderboard. The top player scores are insane. Generally the frame rate is fine. Had a couple of moments of judder but not at consistent points so wonder if something else going on behind the scenes was causing it. Anyway very tempted by the whole package. Supporting this might just make others take note and put something similar out.
  19. Yeah, they weren't there before I went to bed. A day of procrastination now on what to buy, before I inevitably say 'sod it' and get the lot.
  20. It's already out. 1943 and Ghosts n Goblins appear to be free but there doesn't seem to be a way of buying anything else yet.
  21. FL was the only boss I couldn't do. I only beat him on an umpteenth attempt when he got stuck on the corner of the steps, so I could just use magic from up by the fog until he fell.
  22. Delivered today. Quality is as good as ever but these are so few and far between now I've kind of lost interest.
  23. Well I certainly wasn't expecting to hear a cover version of a 50 year old Mud song in this. What a great moment! The main game seems to have gone straight into the first DLC right after the full credits. Might as well plough on then!
  24. I agree with @jonamok's map criticisms. It needs a zoom feature and a larger player icon. As a sofa player I'm sometimes finding it hard to see where I am for orientation purposes. I get the point about the signs and for the most part they have served me well, but a pulsing yellow dot or something would be an improvement for me. Like @Floshenbarnical I too knew little about the game. The plot is a bit too far on the bonkers side of life for me but I'm enjoying the ride. There's too many collectibles to read and listen to though. I'm all for a bit of back story but it breaks the act
