    Anyone tempted by this stick? https://www.8bitdo.com/arcade-stick/

    Thanks. Just registered with them (in German!) so the order is pending. 35$ came to like 32€ (rather than 28.75€) because of "activation fees" but that's still pretty good and allowed me to use PayPal. Thanks all for the tips. Once I get the cards, I will purchase Dangun.

    Ok, American account set up, but I can’t use my PayPal nor credit card. PayPal regions are wrong (my Japanese PayPal account was how i got around the switch, I remember now) and the credit card is U.K. or Europe based. looks like tomorrow morning I’ll make a PayPal account in the USA and transfer myself money, or something. what a pain. I want to give CAVE and M2 money, but if I can’t get this done in a few hours I’ll stick to MAME

    I actually set up a Japanese account in a few mins (used to live there but weirdly, was on xbox at the time), and was all prepped to get the aforementioned games, but yes, you're right, they're cheaper on the US store (not by much) and presumably they'll be in English, which is a nice bonus! I am tempted to get Ketsui and Garegga physical, if they exist, but not sure they need to be. I wouldnt sell them, i just like having physical.

    Well, I don't have a japanese credit card, so i can't remember how I got anything on the paypal balance, but that is a whole other problem, I guess! Let me know if I can help with this, not that I feel I can really! My dilemma right now is do I go physical with any of the PS4 releases or just do the dirty digital? I am not convinced on the Aleste GG micro edition as it is a lot of money for what is essentially a gimmick key chain I will never use. For some reason, the whole low-bit graphics thing seems that it would sit better on Switch in handheld (like a GG) rather th

    OK thanks. Other option is I go physical, I suppose. I would like all those M2 games, I think! Switch does have PayPal on JPN... that's how I bought ESP ra.de!

    Where do you get JPN credit from for the PS purchases? I think I set up PayPal on my Switch... can the same be done on PS or should I use play Asia etc?

    Looks like I will have to Japanese e-shop this, then...

    Physical or digital? I keep uhming and ahing about this. I bought ESP ra.de on release digitally, but havent' really got into it. I should give it another go, really. I think the music didn't gel with me much... or something. It also pisses me off that I have to get out my wired headphones for the switch, but that's another rant for another thread. I really like the limited edition set with GG Micro, but perhaps that's literally throwing money away on something impractical and stupid. Part of my wants nice little boxes of Switch games, then I think I never sell the game
  10. Over Christmas, I cooked some "proper" roasts and so on, here in gErmany. Introduced the girlfriend to some "stable" British foods that foreigners never really see or hear about. But I can't really be arsed. It was a bit of fun, but takes a lot of time, and then you eat the damn thing so quickly. It's entropy all over. I just dislike cooking, but my girlfriend is pretty bad at it. We decided I cook and she cleans the apartment, being as I am apparently shit at that. Tonight I will fry some chicken breast and boil a potato. Can't be arsed to go to the shop for more, and that's all w

    Tempted to get Aleste on Switch though; original series were portable games and a new GG game on Switch is fun.

    I suppose so, yes! I still have my 360, which is definitely the console of choice for shmups, for me, but PS4 could be fun. I don't have a shmup on that system yet, and have had it since launch. I should really play more games on it, I suppose. I am trying to use my switch more in 2021, as last year was a joke. There are some good shooters on that system. I have a modded virtua stick high grade which I can use on the PS4. That's all I need, really.

    I would love Dangun on Switch. It really seems the ports I want go to the wrong places! Touch annoying. I have ESP.ra.de on Switch but would probably prefer physical, on PS4. I'll take it, though. I prefer physical over digital for many reasons, but I might bite THE BULLET with Dangun. Feels stupid to have just DISCOvered it, because it's nearly bloody everything I like about CAVE shooters, plus manic speed and epic beats.

    Somehow this passed me by. Jesus Christ. It's amazing.

    That’s one reason I bought Zelda physical. I hardly enjoy it at the best of times, so I should sell it really. Digital games at 50 quid is a bit of a joke to me, but physical, OK. Can always sell, or then just keep it. Digital <20 is something of a sweet spot, but I don’t buy too many at all. I really want to get back into the switch and never had the draw that I hoped it would. I played and love Tetris Effect on PS4/VR but then there’s only bloody 99 on Switch and I don’t want another online service. The Switch does have some nice shmups, and though there’s more lag
