  1. Thanks @Thor I will pick up Beat Saber & Rez with the cash I would have spent on a "cheap" gaming pc! Another few questions if anyone can help - Is there an inexpensive third party charging cable of a decent length (3m +) that can be reccomended? it would be great to watch a film without worrying the battery will go ove the regular 2 hour charge and the supplied cable is woefully short. This might sound daft, but if I buy the "virtual desktop" for £14.99 from the Oculus store, does that then mean I can link my laptop via WiFi and access/ play my steam g
  2. I just folded and picked up a quest 2 this afternoon for my birthday! Ive never owned my own VR headset before and I have to say I'm really chuffed with it from first impressions! Thankfully, it was dead easy to setup, it works well with my glasses on with the spacer fitted and the lense adjustment seems fine for me on the medium/ middle setting. I don't seem to have any issues with the standard strap either thankfully, so maybe able to save £50 on the elite strap. A few novice questions I could do with some help with Any reccomendations on "go to" apps or g
  3. @Rob_Pulsar or @Lorfarius could you post a link from eBay where you bought it? At £26 I might take a punt myself.
  4. I couldn't agree more with this, becoming a parent has massively diminshed my gaming time, and the energy I have to put into it ... if there is any form of unexpected "bottle neck" between hitting the power button and entering a game I just loose my patoemce and enthusiasm, I think thats why my switch gets more playtime than anything else these days

    I need to go back to that and get it finished once and for all!
  6. Found these collection of big box PC games earlier there is a boxed Gravis Game Pad in there too which came with a free copy of Commander Keen. I'm happy that Sam and Max and Day of the Tentacle are in there too.
  7. The first game/s I owned was also an amsoft collection that came with my CPC 6128 I got for Christmas 1987 I think. The first I played was Roland in Time, although the collection also had Roland on the Ropes, as well as crazy platformer called Tubaruba which I have fond memories of.

    I've had both and it is a good noticeable difference, double the capacity of the V1 In terms of justifying the upgrade ... I think that would depend on how battered your V1 is and if you play in handheld mode most of the time to benefit from the better battery.
  9. Cheers everyone, I was tempted to get it, espescially as Sega Rally is includes but I would probably suffer the consequences at home with yet another console! If any of you live in/ near Essex & fancy it, it might be worth getting in touch with "Parr" as it's only been listed for a day or so.
  10. On my local Facebook selling group, someone is selling a boxed Dreamcast with 1 joypad and 20 games. I can see there are a few duplicate games in the listing but I was wondering is this a bargain these days assuming it's all working?
  11. One of my faves - Day of the Tentacle had the original Maniac Mansion accessible in one of the bedrooms in the main game.
  12. These days I’m playing on my Switch more than anything (as I can play it on the commute, so more compatible with parenthood) - the switch updates tend to take no more than a few minutes. When I do get on the Xbox One at home, I’ve occasionally had updates that are frustratingly long, but it seems few and far between and overall easier to get along with compared to my experience of PC gaming. To be fair it might be that PC Gaming/ updates have come along since I got my gaming rig 8/9 years ago? So you may have a point here in comparison to current gen/ a modern comparison. U
  13. I was going to type a similar post. I had a gaming PC built around the end of the last generation and reaped all the benefits of cheap and diverse gaming mentimed on the OP. Nowadays, being a parent with so little spare time to play games , I much prefer the convenience of booting up and playing via a console in short bursts, knowing it won’t crash/ need an update or configuring to play/ work properly.
  14. Grim Fandango Remastered is currently less than £3 on the e - shop - https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Grim-Fandango-Remastered-1462552.html?awc=12777_1578594698_f1a119d770f1690b4a82c44a98717155&affil=awin&utm_source=AWIN&utm_medium=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.digidip.net%2F&utm_campaign=0k009g5lweii&utm _content=Discount+Code
