    RetroArch + Frontend help.

    Would this work well in a cab? I have a cabinet with PC running an old version of MAME which is fine but I really fancy something newer and shiner as I am selecting games via a mini bluetooth keyboard. Would only be for arcade as I have a RetroPie for the rest.

    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    Right, it's time for an intervention with myself. I got into 40K rather late in life about 10 years ago and then bought absolutely loads of stuff over the next 7 or so years, opening building and painting some of it, but most of it stayed in the boxes until later. It's now clear that later will likely not be any time soon due to work and kids and the fact that the whole lot hasn't been touched for 4 years since the kids were born. So, it all has to go. I have started a Google sheet with it listed here :- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rYiRIAC2e-cNd6-doZSklMMP8wbKeURyN2utc6p1nLU/edit?usp=sharing This is not all of it by the way, and no, I don't own a shop, and yes, I realise I have/had a problem ;-) Would there be any interest here at all? I'm not sure of prices yet but think around 35% or so off current retail at GW plus P&P. The only issue may be that I am in the Isle of Man and postage may be pricy. Might not be an issue though as I'm hoping to sell lots in one go and will probably offer bigger discounts depending on quantity bought. If there is any interest then let me know and we can talk. I can always create a thread in Trading, with prices, if required. Cheers

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    It's here. Wish I'd started the 1.7GB software download this morning before I went out though.

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    I'm joining the club as well. £400 from Amazon for the Rift and Touch Controllers, I've been planning on getting one for a while but at that price I couldn't resist. I borrowed the first development version for a couple of weeks from a mate a few years ago and thought it was ace (especially The Chair) so I'm really looking forward to trying the latest version. I'm guessing it all 'just works' now as it was a right faff last time getting each demo/game to work? I've been playing games across 3x1440 screens but I can't wait to try pCars in VR, already got a wheel. How will I see my telemetry screen though with the goggles on. I've just bought the VR version of Superhot as well to go alongside the standard version. Should be here tomorrow. COME ON!

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    It looks a bit like when they let Philips have a dabble with the characters for new games on the CDi
  6. Indeed, the 'baddies' in this are pretty bad but a lot of the 'goodies' aren't particularly good either. Just seems like loads of people have all totally lost the plot.

    ARMS - Ninty's Fight Club

    I thought this was looking pretty good but I think it's starting to look like it might be PROPERLY GOOD
  8. I've got every Nintendo machine since the NES (except the Virtual Boy and the WiiU), and have bought all of them since the original GameBoy around the release date. For some reason I never picked up a WiiU (I honestly don't know why but I just didn't bother), and in fact I've just realised I've never played one at all, so I can't wait to get stuck into this. I'm really hoping they release more of the AAA WiiU stuff at some point in either download/remastered/ultimate version form.

    Snake Pass - (PS4/Xbox/Switch/PC)

    Up to level 6 now and really liking it overall, it's definitely got the one more go thing going on. I have no problem with the controls, it's starts tricky and then gets easier, as it should, but the fucking camera is pissing me off and I haven't had any camera issues in anything for years. You sometimes just can't get to see what you want, even after changing it, with walls and bushes totally in the way. And perhaps it's just me but as the levels get bigger, coupled with the shitty camera, this really needed a level map.
  10. The Spectrum 'scene' seems a bit weird anyway, why is there so much arguing, falling out, and legal issues about an old computer. Like loads of people here I grew up with the Spectrum, loved it then and still love it now, but I really don't understand why so much of these problems exist around it. And this bunch have the same sort of stuff going on. At the very least they are incompetent and massively out of their depth, and that seems to the the case of almost everyone involved (at any point) with it. They don't seem particularly bright and clearly have zero experience of managing a half a million quid project. Very interested to see what happens next, and obviously hope that all who paid up get something for their cash.

    Nintendo Switch

    That's Gameseek on Marketplace mate, not Amazon itself.

    Nintendo Switch

    Cheers, I'll quickly do it later, one in each hand. Just want to do the marbles.

    Nintendo Switch

    Quick question but why can I only pick from about 5 games in 12 Switch? Please tell me I don't need to unlock the rest?

    Why do Walkers still exist?

    I reckon there's a chance, I should've checked this morning for you.

    Why do Walkers still exist?

    It's a Poundland mate, but they use the Dealz branding as everything is £1.20 which is the same brand they use in Ireland. Not stalking, honest, just happened to notice that you're in the same neck of the woods as me
