Sorry. :lol:

Ad had a thread on here documenting him putting it all together a while back, if you're interested.

I hope this makes up for my smart-arsery.

I'll forgive you just this once :lol:

I've toyed with the idea of modding one of those Arcade1Up cabinets before, but £300 is a pretty high bar for entry, even before you take any of the extra kit into account...

This was a complete copy of Fastest 1, and then loose Japanese carts of J league pro striker, Pebble Beach golf links, super Monaco GP, F1 Grand Prix and Fastest 1

Anyone else have any weird wants for particular regions of particular machines etc.


Pictures please, I love the artwork on Japanese games. I never saw any when I was younger as the only imports I'd seen were ntsc snes games, but the Japanese art always looks so exotic :datass:

Shortly after this, another line appeared :x Not sure if it's the screen or the board driving the screen messing it up, but it looks to be permanent. I'll probably just put up with it until it becomes either totally broken or unplayable and figure out what to do next.

Found my copy of Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness today, was that actually a good game? I don't really remember it

YES

Sorry. I don’t know how well it’ll hold up today, because most of the things I loved about it have been done since - obvious things like scrapping the tedious long grass and the gym structure and no more caves filled with Zubats. At the time, it was mint.

I vaguely remember enjoying it but I don’t think I ever finished it. I’ll have to find my old memory card and see if a save file is on there.

I think my dream game is a cross between League of Legends and Gale of Darkness

It's gooseberry fool mate, I'll do you a real favour and take it off your hands for free. :slol:

But yeah, if you ever fancy selling it, let me know. It's one of about ten Cube games I'm still in the market for and it is worth good money.

Agreed, I’m not one for these micro consoles. Also a couple of those games are a bit, well... gooseberry fool.

I like the mini NES, mini snes, mini megadrive , mini pc engine but not so big on the ones where they want to put screens on them, I just want to play lots of games on my TV at a decent price without it either taking up loads and loads of room, or with it having dodgy controllers (like the neo geo one) I dont like the capcom one because its blooming huge to say theres like 20 games, sure pandora sticks might be big but usually they have hundreds of games on them.

Jeez yeah I see what you mean, going for around £100 on eBay at a quick glance.

What are the 10 cube games you are still after?
