  1. Old https://m.imdb.com/title/tt10954652/ A family on a tropical holiday discovers that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly reducing their entire lives into a single day. Very strange. A mostly stella cast who really don't know whether they're meant to camp it up or not, this is a great concept with some built-in gravitas that needed a much more sophisticated hand on the tiller. Not the shit-show some would have you believe, though. 2.5/5
  2. If people want us to take this to PM just say, but will leave it here for now in case it's useful for others So, these are the dimensions. Maths and stuff definitely not my strong point, so apologies for terminology: Tapered end diameter: 9.43mm Thick end diameter: 12.46mm Length: 14mm That length doesn't include the e clip, which I'm not taking off as they're a bastard nightmare of design and should be flung into the sun Edit: Shaft* diameter: 6mm Shaft length (to plastic bushing): 25.5mm *daaaaamn right
  3. Sort of, but resolution is the tip of the iceberg in PC gaming. For example, you could slap a 'Steam Deck profile' on Cyberpunk 2077 and with bells and whistles disabled, it'll still have a challenge hitting 30fps. I'd imagine. Whereas with Doom Eternal, you'd have to go out of your way to STOP it hitting 60fps, even without Vulkan. Ditto Death Stranding. Anything that has a console version, even targeting PS5/XSX, will scale well to it. So yeah, it'll be broadly comparable to previous gen but with the 'stuff unlocked' features of current gen, so well-optimised games will fly and you won't get the hard-locked or wildly variable frame rates we saw in the last era.
  4. We should all do a group order at some point. Leave it a few weeks and hopefully I'll be solvent enough to put an order together for a group of us
  5. Short answer = yes. Longer answer = yes, with caveats. It won't necessarily work out of the box, but it's a PC so you'll be able to get it working one way or another. You might be able to just add the exe to your steam library (piece o' piss job) and it just works. I'll have a test of that later.
  6. I use https://www.sendico.com/ In brief, once all the items you've won at auction have arrived at their warehouse, you group them into a 'parcel'. It estimates the cost based on the weight, and you can select a delivery option. You then fill-in the delivery info, wherein you put the value of each item. There's a hand-wave 'you must do this according to your country's import laws' but basically you can put whatever you want it, and Sendico won't adjust or challenge it. It works out that FedEx's option is pretty much the greatest. Going off memory, if your parcel is anywhere from about 3kg to something ridiculous like 40 (!) it's the same flat rate of around £80. They're fast, they don't give a monkey's about cracking it open to verify the contents and it breezes across the planet very, VERY quickly. Quickest I had was 3, and no more than 5. If you've chucked in a few weighty items like consoles and large peripherals, that works out at about £10 shipping for each item. So even if stuff cost the same there as here, that's a decent deal. As it is, stuff over there is far, far cheaper. At the moment, I've observed that: Saturn gear is stupidly cheap. Like, 'people really don't want it' cheap. Maybe 4-5 times cheaper than over here. I got an excellent condition White Saturn with pads and memory card for £25. My Vitrual ON boxed twin Sticks with sealed game was about the same price. PlayStation 1 & 2 stuff costs bobbins. PS1 peripherals in particular go for absolute buttons. Dreamcast items are reasonable, but perhaps more valued. Apart from the console itself, which are so numerous you can get them for essentially nothing. A boggo unit with extras will be under £30 easy. I saw an R7 go for around £180, and a Hello Kitty unit boxed with all peripherals and cards, plus an additional (green) controller plus VMs plus games go for about £230. Here's some stuff: Dreamcast, two pads, 4 VMs and two rumble paks, £11 ending tomorrow, no bids so far. Too much stuff to list, but basically two Saturns inc. a white, two Dreamcasts, all sorts of pads and stuff, currently under a pound, 5 bids, ending tomorrow. Needs TLC but jeeeeez. Fancy a PS3 SF4 branded Hori Stick? £13 at the moment guv, no bids so far. Or this PS3 HRAP, which is also £13 with no bids. Or maybe you want a Saturn Twin Stick, an official Dreamcast Joystick plus a load of lightguns and stuff? Currently under a quid, pal. There's a single bidder you'd be competing with, mind!
  7. @Darwock @Klatrymadon The bolts do seem to be an odd configuration, yep. May be worth removing them and dropping them in a rust remover, aye. They'll rust-up again fast so, ideally, you'd want to tumble them in a jewelry cleaner with stones/sand to remove all particulates, then nickel plate them. That might be going a tad far though The deal on the Arcana HRAP was pretty darn good for sure. Even by Japanese Yahoo Auction standards. They class anything that isn't pristine as 'junk'. This is missing the cable storage lid and has some light dings, but not something you'd give much of a frig about unless you were a perfectionist. All my stuff bar the Switch stick was dirt cheap. The way I go about it is: put about £200 aside, win 5-8 rareish items cheap via a third party agency, pay £80 for FedEx 3-4 day delivery, Mark down all items so they come under the £15 import duty, and you'll end up with several hundred quid's worth of clobber in the Western Market. Keep what you like, sell the rest for a moderate profit.
  8. I've just put some of these up for sale, but here's my current lot (in an ever-shifting pile...) Left-right top row: Hori mini PlayStation (clear) Saturn Virtua Stick MD Stick Left-right midrow Namco PlayStation stick,Amiga-modded Saturn twin stick Saturn fighting stick SS with modded buttons Left-right bottom row: Hori RAP Switch (for gaming PC) Hori RAP PS3 - Arcana Hearts 3 edition The PS3 stick works on PS4 with the Brook adapter I bought. Working on PS4 means it works on PS5 so its a three-gen PS stick now, essentially. Cost roughly £26 shipped
  9. Ah sorry, as I wasn't quoted or tagged I missed this. Wow, thanks! Will have a go at this shortly and get back to you!
  10. There's a PC version, but it's not on any store due to licensing. Easy enough to acquire, though.
  11. Cheers. My 256GB says Q2 2022 as well. As for the DF video, it's a really good one. It raises a lot of good points (as @Wipersummarised). However, based on how well the AYA runs (which I nearly pulled the trigger on a while back and this is more powerful than) I'm not overly worried about it being a 720/60/medium settings success.
  12. This. Where are people seeing estimated delivery dates?
  13. I just popped in to post the DF link. Not watched it yet:
  14. That was what I experienced. I just had to keep going.
  15. Yes, identical to the receipts you get for a regular game purchase.
