    Gaming things you regret selling...

    Worst part is, that was one of two AES’s I sold.

    I have photos of a lot of the stuff I regret selling, from selling it. ... often to the forum...

    Stops being a list, becomes more of a directory.

    I think you’re wrong. I think it was stolen too.

    Post Your Gaming Setups

    Something for everyone else here, I’ve since moved into my own home and made a big point of photographing all my “stuff” for insurance purposes. When dealing with the the insurance company after the robbery they sent someone out based on the random list of stuff I was claiming. When they saw the devastation they realised I was a “collector” and did pay out. This would have been made much easier with previous photographic proof.

    Post Your Gaming Setups

    This happened to me in 2016. My wife and I had moved Home from Cork to Belfast. We had moved back in with my parents whilst looking for a house. We were burgled and they lifted all my stuff (and I agree with you, it’s all just stuff). They ripped open boxes of all my old stuff, leaving games like castlevania symphony of the night and taking a duff old 360. Amusingly, I had original xboxes in 2 xboxone boxes. They got to the door with these and had a peak and must have thought “that the fuck is this guy on?” And dumped it all before leaving. The only thing that really annoyed me was the fact they lifted my watch, which was a gift from my dad and was a bit of an heirloom. Nothing showed up locally sadly. It really upset my mum, as you can imagine. We did rack our brains though because we were obviously targeted. They only took my electronics and left my mums jewellery etc.

    Nintendo cracks down on retro games downloads http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-45169817

    In my time I’ve downloaded hundreds, if not thousands, of ROMS. I reckon I’ve played less than 20 for more than 20 minutes. Completed maybe less than 10. I paid £50 or whatever for the SNES mini and completed Super Metroid, something I’d never have done had it just been another file, in another folder, on my emulator. Its not as big a loss as were making out here. Often the financial aspect is what invests you into a game.
  10. But of a weird one this, but I was chatting to a guy in work today about how, back in the nineties I was able to procure (and I can't remember how) a copied CD full of disk versions of many popular pc games at the time. I'm almost positive it was called "voodoo" something or other, and to install the game you had to select each individual zip file - each represented a disk) and extract them to a c: folder and/or onto blank 1.44mb disks. The actual front end had some work put into it. It was fairly user friendly and, in my memory at least, was reminiscent of those trainers you'd see at the start of an amiga copied game... I'm just wondering if anyone else had these, where they came from, who made them and are any of these relics still around these days?

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    Hear me out here: i reckon the best thing they could do is make a miniseries around the three Q books. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Q_Continuum i read them years ago and thought it would be amazing to see them made. THIS COULD BE IT. its also a way of not strictly needing all the original cast back too.

    It’ll be nothing without Q.

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    I totally misread the news article thinking he was somehow reprising his role in Discovery. If it’s post TNG, he’ll be in it as much as he was in DS9. Simply due to the old guy’s age.
  15. I have a lovely Mario branded GBASP here. It works perfectly if the game is inserted almost fully into the cartridge slot. Maybe 1-2mm not fully inserted. Its doing my head in in a little bit and I’m wondering what I can do to fix it?
  16. I installed Quake 2 on an old laptop recently and it still has live servers going. Got chatting to a guy who was in a server on his own farting around. He was suprised i joined him. Very odd indeed! anyway, whose up for some original Prey multiplayer so I can finally get the last achievement? Lol
  17. I’m sorting a lot of stuff out lately, and I’m thinking about flogging a good deal of my accumulated crap. Anyway, sometimes you can’t seem to price an item from eBay. So, I have an original boxed and unopened Xbox 360 arcade, which would be running the original dashboard firmware. I cant seem to see any consoles running that firmware, I’m not even sure if that’s something people would be interested in collecting? Does anyone have an idea if it’s worth more than your normal run of the mill 360s?
  18. Few, if any of those are unopened though. Would that matter?
  19. Not quite the same thing, but I often hold on to 'powerful item/weapon X' until the very end, then finish the game having never used it.

    jammaplus/forum - hijacked?

    Shame. I bought my cab from a chap on there! Whilst I didn’t use it as I use this place, I did check it frequently.

    Just got this on the PSN sale. It was excellent! I knew nothing about it before I picked it up too.
  23. Jesus, I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but in doing some research for the 32x thread I stumbled upon this: http://www.cinemassacre.com/AVGN/Nes_Nerd_videos.html Now, some of the videos are quite abrasive and aimed maybe more at an american sense of humour, but some really stand up, The Mega CD / 32x videos are quite funny and the Intellivision / Collecovision videos are really really funny, particularly the former: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/32245.html I really think you should watch a few of them. The whole 'the bubbles are coming need to find the... FUCK!' bit really had me in kinks.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2

    So, is this game worth £20 for offline single player only? I’ve no real interest in the online bit but was interested in the story missions...
