Re: Retro gaming

The EU cart for streets of rage 2 only locks out on a a us ntsc machine, it’ll run if you set it to Japan instead (and boot as Bare Knuckle 2 instead). Every day's a school day here on C and R. Never thought to try it, for obvious reasons, but that's a cool little trick. Got some ROM colour palette...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I had heard that the game started as a boss rush, but then the devs added in more conventional levels to make it more of a traditional Contra style run and gun. But so far there's only been a single 'level' and about 4 bosses, so I guess not? I think that’s right mate. It’s was as you describe, the...

Maybe the cane and Rinse meet up might actually happen ;)
That would be class.

I’m sure I could arrange an out of hours private thing if that would be appealing !!!
As always I am totally up for this
It’ll be me, you and Darren.



Which is fine 😄.

It’s early days but their looking at about 30-35 cabinets, drinks, snacks and aim to be open in July this summer. Then there’s the ...

Re: Videogame News

Looks like the Castlevania collection games have been announced.

Quite a package it seems.

I pray for a physical version.

Coming to PS4, Xbox and Switch.

Re: Retro gaming

I don't like using Q-Tips because they leave little fibres in the cart. No bueno. I’ve never had an issue with using Q-Tips, or ‘fibres’ being left in the cart restricting its use or functionality. Generally, anything left behind by a damp Q-Tip is taken away with a soft cloth wipe. It’s good to be...

Re: Retro gaming

Everytime I pealed a sticker off something, a quick wipe with that and it was good as new. Amazing stuff. I used to hate pushing all that goop into a blob with my thumb nail and then trying to smear the rest over the plastic, hoping it would just blend in somehow. I use this for removing stickers, ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Box Boy + Box Girl Demo is now live in the UK store.

For those that are on the fence, or aren’t familiar with the game, I encourage you to give it a go.

A very rewarding puzzle platformer 😎.

Re: Retro gaming

Gonna have to pick up one of those fibre-glass pens, looks like it could come in handy too They’re handy man. Only a few quid from Amazon and they’re twist top so you can trim off the older worn, dirty tip and extract more fibres from inside the pen. They allow you to be more liberal with more stub...

Might not be an appropriate time to post this but...... I've picked up a few games over the past few weeks, incidentally Phantasy Star 2 is actually my 1000th physical, pre 7th Generation game. So thats quite a personal milestone I suppose. Firstly though, I've still been playing Castlevania: The Ne...
