  1. I thought the screen might be a bit small before I bought it but it works perfectly for 'console' games. Didn't even bother plugging it into the TV for the first couple of months. The Switch tax is annoying but it's such a great way to play smaller pick up and play (mostly indie) games versus a PC (and I say this as someone who has a PC under the TV that boots into Steam so it's not like there are many hurdles). I've loved playing Axiom Verge, OSM and Into the Breach in the last few months, all available cheaper on the PC. Split joycons without the grips are incredibly comfortable as well, an excellent evolution of the Wiimote/Nunchuck.
  2. It's amazing, but do consider playing the first one, well, first (assuming you haven't already). It's only a bit less brilliant but would be harder to play after the second one with the improvements they've made.

    My mistake, it wasn't Bishi Bashi 3 sorry, it's called 'The Bishi Bashi'.

    The buttons are the same size as the official machine I think, they are about A3 size in total. Not ideal i'll admit, they are currently in a box in the loft! The yellow button is only used in Bishi Bashi 3 I think, it was the 'release' of it that made me want to make them in the first place. It works perfectly well for all the other games too (or at least the ones that work in Mame anyway). They weren't all that expensive in the end - I got the buttons off Aliexpress, I think they were under £4 each at the time and an ipac 2 were nearly all the costs. It's pretty unique to bring out when you've got people round at least!

    I was hoping to build an arcade machine this year but other projects got in the way (I did build some arcade Bishi Bashi controls though, a project started a few years back!). Arcadecontrols.co.uk have pre-cut kits if the woodwork is the main sticking point. Trawling through BYOAC there are a few great machines using large screens vertically to create a square (1080 x 1080) monitor that is perfect for horizontal and vertical games. Second hand plasma screens can be had pretty cheaply so i'm going to make something like that in the spring hopefully. Bonus picture of 2 of the Bishi Bashi controllers (I made 3);
  6. The side nudge was on the x button, not the triggers, that would definitely reduce your enjoyment of the game!
  7. Excite Truck (Wii) is one of the best arcade racers ever made.

    This may be a per game thing as I was able to add a US purchased version of the Zelda DLC for use with a UK cart. I use the same multi account system as well, is it a digital copy of the game as maybe that’s it?

    They need to bring out the horse racing tent for Alli and put him out in f his misery.

    What worries me the most is Southgate's complete inability to (positively) impact the game, either tactically or with substitutions. He clearly has a single idea of how the team should operate (hence an unfit Alli) and isn't willing to change that. His non injury related substitutions have been at best ineffective and at worst damaging. Why the hell would you bring on Vardy if you are not going to make any effort to play to his strengths? If Alli and Sterling start the next game i'm going to try and facepalm so hard i'll forget the match is on and do something else. EDIT : I didn't think Sterling had a bad game yesterday, but he's been given enough chances to do a lot better so think Rashford is worth a go with the way the team are setup.

    Reverse rose tinted glasses!

    The loading times were pretty horrendous compared to cartridge based consoles though where it could be measured in seconds rather than minutes. We're far more used to waiting again now.

    Can't see anything on the website, I know the opening times but just wondering if anyone has any experience of whether it is busier earlier or later.

    What are the busiest times on a Saturday? We’re heading up in a couple of weekends and it’s a 3 hour drive so just trying to plan the day.

    Help me pick Ten PlayStation games

    I’ve got a real soft spot for Pong, great variety and some decent multiplayer.

    What kind of lunatic has an angle grinder hanging over their mousemat!? Or is it on instruction of your partner in case they catch you knocking one out?
