  1. Ordered mine from Digi-Key just now as they seemed about £10 cheaper than Mouser (£118 with the VAT and shipping). What extras are recommended? I'm just going to use HDMI for now, so won't actually get the MiSTer board. Does the DE10 need a fan and heatsink on its own? Was thinking a USB hub for all the controllers. The SDRAM seems essential too and a good old UK plug adapter (doesn't need to be stepdown does it?). Pretty sure it comes with an SD card already. Am I missing anything?
  2. I'm in exactly the same boat and 'need' to buy one. Having had a good look around, I can't find anything in the UK. Looking at this thread mouser.co.uk and digikey.co.uk (both US based) seem to be the best ones to go with. Just trying to work out if there will be any fallout from Brexit or not. Has anyone ordered from either of those this year?
  3. How are you meant to make progress in the career? The bottleneck for me seems to be not getting enough 'science' points to then spend on stuff. Oh, and never seeming to have enough fuel to make it into space and actually orbit (let alone re-enter and land). I have so few parts to play with when building a rocket (plus there's a weight/size limit), feels like I'm missing something?

    Played it on the Mega Drive. Thought it was quite good, but old school in design (which I guess is the point). I did give up after a few hours in though as it felt quite grindy and I wasn't in the mood for that.
  5. The NES is a weird one for me. It was my first console, and I absolutely love it, but it doesn't seem to have as many stand out, amazing games as the SNES or N64 did. There are plenty of great games like Zelda, Micro Machines, Elite, Batman and Final Fantasy. And then there's Mario 3, which is just brilliant. A real step up from the other games, where Nintendo oozed everything out of that little old 8-bit. And the game was just a few hundred kbs in size. How is that even possible?
  6. Just got an email from them asking me to subscribe to Edge for another 3 years. Might not be too wise if the magazine itself doesn't exist?
  7. 1 - Mario 64 2 - Perfect Dark 3 - Goldeneye 4 - Majora's Mask 5 - Ocarina of Time
  8. Random order, but Zelda is the clear winner: Link's Awakening Mario Land 1 Dr Franken (not a great game really, but it looked bloody nice) Metroid 2 Battletoads
  9. I like them, mainly for the nostalgic feel, but also because it'll help when I get round to creating my masterpiece game (one day). My GCSE art will just about enable me to create some 8-bit blocks I reckon. Even 16-bit is too advance for my liking. If the world is fed up of this style at that point, then I'm screwed.

    I learnt that Mars had two moons called Phobos and Deimos playing Doom. Who says games can't be educational? I also learnt that BFG didn't always stand for Big Friendly Giant.
  11. There's a Boris Karloff look about him which is quite cool. The rest of it is awful. We're actually at that point where games have better visuals than some films.
  12. Been having a look at the directors and writers of Dexter to try and see why it's turned so crap. It doesn't really make any sense. The current head writer has been involved since the early days (he won an award for his work on season 2 which was great). It's such a bizarre fall from grace. Thank God it all ends next week. This show has clearly become my Dark Passenger. Motherfucker.
  13. They've just announced that the Berlin campaign has been pushed back to January so they can make it as long as the main game. They're also looking for ways to improve the save system. I'm keeping an eye on the SNES reboot one and the team doing the Unlimited one where it's pretty open world. It's a great little game, but does lack depth as pointed out and the balancing is a bit all over the place.
  14. Had a glimmer of hope at the start when Dexter was all angry, thinking the series might now change gear as he goes properly off-rails ultimately leading to his destruction. But then things just got silly and everyone was happy. Given how the episode ended, I'm hoping they now begin the final story arc and do something good with it. Misplaced hope probably.
