  1. Picked up a Rg351V from here to supplement my Rg351P. After a good fiddle I much prefer the form factor and screen. I think I’ll just keep the V as the 4:3 screen fits my usage better. 

    it’s also prompted me to cancel my analogue pocket order. Given I don’t use real carts I don’t think pocket is really give me much other than unwanted complications.

    Since getting my Oled switch, I’ve been buying a fair few arcade style games, Capcom Arcade, Street Fighter Collection, various shmups… so I picked up the 8bitdo Arcade stick.

    Being wireless, it means I can use it with my Switch and PC without much hassle.


    I’m not keen on the hardware it comes with, the stick is very loose and the buttons are a bit spongy, but I have an old Madcatz Soul Calibur PS3 stick with sanwa parts so I’m gonna swap them over and that should help the situation. 

    Other than that it’s a nice package, it’s solid and weighty, has the option of Bluetooth / 2.4ghz / usb. I quite like the NES aesthetic too. 

    Now I need a converter for Dreamcast / Saturn!


    I have the brook convertor for DC/Saturn - works great with a stick. I’ve not tried with my 8bitdo stick though. I can give it a go later.

    So I'm looking to order an arcade stick for when my MiSTer finally gets built (for Neo Geo and Arcade cores mainly) and so far the front runner appears to be the 8Bitdo one here...




    Is there any reason I should avoid this or is there a better choice?


    I have one of these which I've modded with Sanwa Sticks and buttons. It's good out the box anyway but very easy to mod/tweak. You can see it here:



  4. I have both these setups. They are both great but serve slightly different purpose for me. RGBPI is yer fill yer boots jack of all trades, Mister just feels like a more refined just works experience. Certainly for computers Mister is far better IMO.

    Did anyone here pre-order one of these and now wish that they'd got a Steam Deck?


    I did the opposite - pre-ordered the Steam Deck, as it didn't need up-front payment - but now I'm wishing I'd got a Playdate. No slight on the Steam Deck: it looks great, I just can't see any situation where I'd get much use out of it.


    My Steam Deck order is Q2, so it's probably coming up soon. If you fancy doing a part-exchange for an early Playdate pre-order, DM me.


    I might be up for that. Which deck did you pre-order?

    I'm only starting it, but it seems dark as fuck just barely under the surface. Bloody hell.

    kotaro not one for the kids then? 9 and 12 year old are keen to watch it. 

  7. It looks like I might be in the first batch, so long since i ordered I couldn’t remember. If nothing else this will be an interesting curiosity.


    did they charge cards when pre-order was placed or when shipping? I can’t recall or find anything on this.

    I just forked out for the poor mans version, so i must not be worthy lol


    Spinner worth it?


    Not really, lotta money tbh! The spinner feels nice but its a bit janky in arkanoid IMO


    In other news it looks like someone has hacked this:



    Hopefully at some point a public mod will make it out

    does anyone know where to get the artwork for the marque?


    I got a pack of 50 cards with mine, came with the edition i bought. Not seen any printable ones though

  10. Cool, I have quite a few bitmap books, they are lovely but they do seem to very between too picture heavy, too word heavy and that lovely sweet spot. This seems more in the middle.


    Whilst I'm here the geek line series of books are awesome:









    Not cheap but a huge amount to read and lots of amazing photos of old things. I have the PSX, gamecube, SNES and PC-Engine ones - wasn't a fan of the N64 edition but then I'm not a fan of N64.

    The latest from Bitmap Books: Go Straight - The Ultimate Guide To Horizontally Scrolling Beat ‘Em Ups by Dave Cook.




    Good book? Been musing over whether to pick it up
