  1. I had the same issue since it launched, but then noticed the extra games were showing as "Available 17/02/21" despite it, well, being long past that. After rebooting to no avail, I figured perhaps something was awry with the date and time so went into settings and turned off the "Automatically set time" (or whatever it is) setting and then turned it back on to encourage a resync or something. It made sense at the time. Starting the game back up then showed the packs finally! Or there was a problem with the eShop and it coincidentally fixed at the same point, I dunno. It all seemed a bi
  2. Yep and he didn't even hold it against me when I completely forgot one of the most expensive boxes (and we weren't able to check them all at the time due to aforementioned distancing) and had to courier it down a few days later! Thankfully it showed up! My own incompetence aside, it was definitely much less hassle than selling it all separately. Everyone will be different in terms of how much they're prepared to accept for the bulk option (or "lose" as you may think of it compared to selling separately - not that you're losing anything really if you're not using it and it's languis
  3. This is exactly where I feel like I'm getting to, hence the action. Outstanding advice about the sorting by price on ebay (and CEX) also.
  4. Yeah, I use the hacked firmware for GG games on the Mega SG (or rather, I have done so twice and marvelled at zooming the minuscule resolution up to 4K and it looking utterly ludicrous) but I already had the Everdrive and it lets me play the now-underwhelming, but still-impressive-to-teenage-me MD version of Virtua Racing. Likewise with the SD2SNES and the various chip games. But definitely good advice for anyone else considering picking one up.
  5. While I grew up with a Master System (after a Spectrum, natch), it sadly was part of the original 1993 purge (along with my Megadrive and SNES). I've regretted it since, even though I fully accept I'd now just be gratefully shovelling them in your direction after they'd languished in a box for 3 decades. Anyway, no Master System, apologies.
  6. I've got one (a Rhea. Or a Phoebe. Whichever one it is that fits the 21 pin Saturn) and one for the Dreamcast (DCEmu) that I - shamefully - have failed to fit to either machine. Enthusiasm tempered by eventual indifference seems to be the way it goes, hence the need for rationalisation.
  7. Sadly, that's (perhaps bizarrely) the one system I got rid of a few years back as I had a friend who was oddly enthusiastic about the Lynx. I'm 99% certain I didn't have any rarities or anything interesting anyway - a Lynx 2 with Roadblasters, Blue Lightning, APB, Chip's Challenge, Electrocop and maybe 1 or 2 others was as far as it went. Apologies.
  8. Sound advice, I think from all - and appreciated. I don't think I have the time or inclination to check the value of everything (and I'm fairly certain that the majority of, for example, the 360 stuff will go for buttons), but I'll certainly have a look at the older things and the more obvious rarities. I think if someone had come up to me a few days ago and said something like "£1500 (or whatever) and I'll take it all", I'd have been letting off fireworks in celebration as I handed them the keys to the garage - but I'm sure I can spend a day or so at least seeing what's there. It'
  9. (Coughs theatrically as I boot closest approximate topic thread up the arse and push it stumbling into the daylight). So, what with the dawn of a new (and almost certainly underwhelming) generation of consoles - which I'll probably eventually end up buying despite myself just to coo appropriately at the latest thing for a few days before putting the pad down and going back and playing the same 5 or 6 games I always play anyway (generally 4X and roguelikes as I just want something I can *finish* at that point in time, even if I then come back for like 300 hours anyway. Getting old i
  10. Having ordered an Odroid Go Advance around 6 weeks ago after a significant period beforehand of pondering; pointless pontification; and research (where I briefly considered the RG350 but was charmed by the ramshackle, build-it-yourself nature of the Odroid) I obviously then more or less totally forgot all about it and moved on to whatever the next thing to endlessly research and consider was (a MISTer probably, which I've yet to pull the trigger on - but it provides lots of distraction during the long, working from home days as my productivity scrapes along the floor. But anyway).
