Just tried some Ikagura. Made it to the 2nd chapter :datass:

F-Zero GX is quite tricky as well

I'll have to do a bit of looking around at general value and will knock it down a bit for GR mates rates.

It sounds like you really enjoyed playing the the game, Pedz. "Massive bags of charm" :) . Hopefully you'll get back to playing some right duffers when other GRcadians pick the next games ;) .

In several years of owning that across two different formats the furthest I ever made it was the third level and even then it was only once.

Just let me know what you're looking for - if I can afford it I'll happily take it off your hands!

It's game night with my friends. So far we've played MK64 and Mario Parties 4 and 5. I have won them all. 8-)

If I can win Mario Party 2 (the holy grail of our game nights)... :datass:

A 35 turn affair on Mystery Land sees me breaking into the double digits. It was quite a ridiculous game. I had 6 stars after 10 turns thanks to 3 hidden blocks that were all stars and after that I worked hard to preserve my lead, especially when I was the target at pretty much every time one of the others visited Boo to steal a star. I also only lost the mini-games bonus star by 3 coins and the most coins bonus star by 9 coins; but I did nab the Happening award. All in all it was pretty great.

Retro games nights :wub:

We had some friends over last night too and I got to show off my collection, although frustratingly I couldn't get my Mega Drive to work. Powered on but wouldn't display a picture. Pretty sure the issue is the console itself and not the cables as I tried a couple of spares. Might just grab another one off eBay seeing as they're pretty cheap.

Battered everyone at Goldeneye though 8-)

Just been playing some original GBA. You really forget just how terrible the screen for that was. Think I've injured something trying to hold and tilt the screen to get the right angle for the light :lol:

Recently picked up a Component > HDMI converter. Mainly bought it for my PS2, although I've been playing Gamecube games through it as well (although GC games seem to hold up/look better I'd say and didn't really need any improvement). It still doesn't look amazing, but it makes things look cleaner and does away with some of the fuzziness.

I've got my NES mini as well now - just waiting for a good stretch of time to delve into the retro goodness. :datass:

SNES game Number 34 get! And it's a goodie. Megaman X - spent a small fortune getting it in the condition I wanted.

In fact, I spent so much that I'm probably going to have to flog a bunch of stuff to pay for it, and now won't get a Switch until next year.
