  1. Not sure I agree it's the best, but it is sublime. I too have been waiting for a re-issue of this along with Waka Jawaka.
  2. Just pre-ordered the founders pack VS. as already mentioned, I'd buy the carts anyway so this is a great deal.
  3. My Piko Collection 2 came without a manual, Amazon returns to the rescue and replacement coming today.
  4. Wow, never heard of this label however growing up in Runcorn this is fascinating and I love what I’ve heard on Bandcamp. Just found a copy of the white vinyl at Piccadilly Records, so ordered it.
  5. Second Mega Cat collection announced for August, happy with that as the first collection has some great games. Wish they'd hurry up and open pre-orders for the Codemasters colletion.
  6. Another vote for Slay The Spire here, bought it on Switch on release and recently spent £8.99 for the android version, which I thought was ‘expensive’ for a mobile game. Have just checked and up to 60hrs on my phone and not touched two of the characters yet. Great value definitely, but also not averse to buying a game I’m really interested in on release at full price.
  7. Still enjoying my Evercade, when I first saw a mate had one I thought it looked like a massive waste of time, however after a bit a research and seeing the cute little carts and lovely little manuals I ordered the mega pack and now have all currently released carts. Playing; Magical Drop 2 - Data East Collection Only really played Puyo Pop Tetris on Switch for any experience with this sort of game, but this absolutely delightful, endless mode is good and the story mode is surprisingly fun. Really good little ‘zone’ game and very addictive. Controls great on the Evercade too. Brave Battle Saga - Piko Interactive Collection This is apparently a game only recently given an English translation and a physical release, bundled together with a load of other RPGs on this cart. Only a short way in but already very charming and features an active battle system that I can see getting interesting once my party fills out. Apparently over 40hrs long too.
  8. Those are some of my favourite bits in his back catalogue. The way the brass section doubles the guitar solo toward the end of this piece, string bends and all, is beautiful.
  9. Really happy with mine, as mentioned a few times in this thread it's really easy to get an existing device with a full set of ROMS but then I find I never play anything! Enjoying the curated selections from the pack I bought including the first 10 cartridges and the Oliver Twins one as a freebie. Just bit the bullet and ordered Xenocrisis/Tanglewood and both Atari Lynx cartridges. Am I fully up to date then with releases? I've found a decent youtube channel, Crow Collective where he reviews each cartridge.
  10. My Evercade including the first 10 cartridges and free Oliver Twins cart arrived today. I love it, particularly the Mega Cat and Piko collections!
  11. I have one of these in the Kitchen, is a really good budget option. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Technica-AT-LP60XUSB-Automatic-Belt-Drive-Turntable/dp/B07NX6VTKF/ref=sr_1_41?dchild=1&keywords=turntable&qid=1611163157&sr=8-41 Also have a Project Debut in the living room, Project Primary is around £180 on Amazon, also a good option. The Project will be a better product, but I've been really pleased with the AT, particularly the auto-return function. Also be aware that the Project will probably need some sort of Phono stage depending on what you want to play it through, the AT has this included.
  12. Enjoying the games in general on my PS5 but as mentioned here already the console is a bit of an under baked mess isn’t it? Problems I’ve encountered so far include numerous crashes, controller disconnecting and a disc getting stuck and making a horrible grinding noise when I tried to eject, only remedied by putting the console horizontal and using safe mode. Very worrying for such an expensive device. for balance I’ve not had one issue with my Series X.
  13. Finally got hold of a PS5 yesterday, pretty much solely to play this as the Souls series are my absolute favourite games. This is not disappointing at the moment, what a fantastic looking game, I want Bluepoint to remaster every game in the series now! This is also significantly easier than the games that followed, which makes it an excellent starting point for anyone new to the series. Having a great time.
  14. Great race, but wouldn't be surprised if Hamilton was int the blower 15 laps from the end 'hold on lads, he's about to give the game away here.' Great to see a win for Perez, and Russell was a class act all the way through the race, glad he didn't drop his head after the puncture and forced his way back into the points.
  15. Thought it was easy... am I just playing bots?
  16. Just fired this up on my series X for the first time in about 2 years. Solos mode, Victory Royale first game. There’s a handful of pissed of 12 year olds somewhere tonight!
  17. Was initially annoyed by the lack of built in stand, then noticed this fella sitting on the shelf...
  18. I just received a second email from EE confirming my order and that I should expect it 'by 15th December'. Happy with that, will just have to console myself with my Series X until then I suppose!
  19. I managed to bag two today via Currys and EE, didn't hold out hope for either but had the confirmation from EE. Then I received the 'on it's way by 15th December' email from Currys so have been on the live chat with them and cancelled that one to get the money refunded and will stick with the EE one. Hopefully someone else who wants one can now bag the Currys one.
  20. Just states delayed, no actual confirmation of a delivery date, despite receiving an earlier confirmation. Just a glitch in the system and you're essentially pre ordering one from the next allocation, but paying straight away. Have started a refund request.
  21. I also did this, but it's clear that it's just a glitch and you'll receive an email stating your order is delayed. The problem is they also instantly take payment.
  22. Wife works part time and in all day today apart from a 15 minute window where she had to pick the kids up from school. Guess exactly which window of time Amazon attempted delivery? Luckily they followed my delivery instructions to leave it in the play house in the garden, squeaky bum the whole I waited for my wife to get home and confirm it was still there!
  23. Really enjoying Session Horns and Session Strings within Komplete, can get really good results when playing around with the keyswitches. Messed around at the weekend too create this cover of Jump as my EVH tribute. Listen to Jump by Gary Mulcahy on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/gYJX
