  1. https://archive.org/details/tosecYour romset nightmare can finally come to an end. Hey, why not download some magazines while you're there. Nb. I know they aren't 100% but beggars can't be choosers, eh?
  2. Yeah, Nintendo games tend to keep their value, even titles like Nintendoland, a game that they were virtually giving away a year ago has shot back up in price.
  3. Yeah, that's a StackSocial storefront. I've never bought anything physical from there but they do occasionally offer some reasonable Mac software deals.
  4. Any time. I bought Codename Steam for a fiver yesterday as well.
  5. I might actually give this a go after picking it up in ASDA for £8 a few weeks ago.
  6. Qlcrew.com gives you some in depth options when it comes to searching videos, most are tagged with games and the people on the show. They also let you relive the chat on some of the more recent streams, if that kind of thing is your bag.
  7. The new GAME in the Gateshead Metro Centre is pretty nice, well lit and spacious. There's an increasing amount of 'gamer gear' creeping onto the shelves so that must be a decent money maker. There's so much of the stuff that it's not hard to imagine that our post-nuclear economy won't be run on bottle caps, it'll be Funko Pops.
  8. "Gamer Claus". Fuck me, it almost makes me wish they'd bring back Fat Chris.
  9. Yeah, pretty much. I ordered it before there was a price in place, and when they finally added one it was £79.99. Of course, once it hit the news they actually adjusted my price UPWARDS to £129.99, rather than cancelling the order outright and then didn't inform me of the change. I got in touch with them and explained that by adjusting the price of the order upwards they were undermining their own pre-order price guarantee. After all, if they did it once there's nothing stopping them from adjusting the price of another pre-order without warning, and without notification. They adjusted the price back after that. Now I order all my games from Simply anyway.
  10. Hey, thanks Amazon. Too bad I won't get to use it until tomorrow.
  11. The Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Quick Look is up there with the best.
  12. That's a drawback of the Win8 tablet I had - 1080p would bring the refresh rate down to 30hz, whereas 720p would give 60hz. Might be for power consumption reasons - one of my laptops defaults to a 40hz refresh on battery for similar reasons, although that got switched off ASAP.
  13. Far from a joke, Jeff was legit upset about it. They used his likeness to advertise an upcoming game that he's previously been an outspoken critic of. That's a shitty thing to do, especially when he goes out of his way to distance himself from endorsing the podcast advertisers. In his words, they didn't ask but if they had he'd have probably said no.
  14. It's the same as in live action only instead of recognisable faces, game devs and publishers want recognisable voices and If voice work is your bread and butter then you can't afford to turn roles down.Nolan North has a lot of range, but as he's said himself after Uncharted he was being contacted by publishers who were specifically looking for the "Nathan Drake" voice. Specifically, I think of Prince of Persia (2008): For what it's worth he's stated that this role is the one he'd like to re-record if he was given the option.
