New thread, same retro gaming chat.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Nice one, Drummy!

It costs £59.99 but will probably be the only memory device you'd need. Read PushSquare's report for more details.

That's really cool, but pricey. I use a PS2 Slim for PS1/PS2 though and apparently it doesn't work with that.

I bought a few Sega Saturn games over the weekend - the first I've bought in several years now. I'll update here with a snap when they arrive :D

A few more GC games are winging their way to me thanks to the legend that is Milner on here, getting ever closer to the magic number that I can stop at. I think Mario Party 7, Superstar Baseball, Killer Seven and maybe Fire Emblem will finish it off. Then possibly PAL copies of Paper Mario and Crystal Chronicles. :wub:

It sounds like you've really developed your Cube - and, IIRC, N64 - collections these past few years, Cora. It's a great thing to build them up over time, gradually adding bits here and there! :-) .

I wonder how usable that is when you have a lot of saves, I don’t remember memory cards exactly being quick to scroll through.

Hey, Johnny, check out the link, dude - if you have the required kit than you can manage the card from your PC. The memory card has wi-fi built in :slol: .

I think Cora is the resident N64 king around here. Him or Jawa.

I’ve been looking into this tonight but cannot seem to see any UK Sellers, stockists or people who sell the machine modded.

I found a cool videogame modder from Norwich who sells and makes cool N64’s [amongst other consoles] but they seem to be RGB Mods so far :cry:

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RAWTALENTART

I’d love an N64 w/ HDMI the clarity looks amazing.

UltraHDMI is a very nice piece of kit, but it's prohibitively expensive and hard to find over here.

For not much more than the cost of getting one bought and installed you'd be able to get an RGB Modded N64 with Deblur feature, a RAD2X cable and possibly even an everdrive.

But if you can afford it and you can source one then I'd go for it.

As another aside, now we’ve moved into a slightly bigger flat I’ll be getting a bookshelf on payday especially for the N64 and ‘Cube collections. Also, a sticker set for the ‘64 carts. Expect *many* pictures.

Did you get my message about that, btw?

Retrogamer have again sent me 2 copies of this month's magazine (which have a gorgeous Final Fight front cover :wub: ) - I've checked my details online and I am definitely only paying the one subscription so strawberry float knows why I keep getting double :?

Saturn games turned up. Spent more than I'd like to admit on some of these :shifty: I think I'm approaching the end of my Saturn collecting now though.

Fine with the condition of everything except Bug Too!, the cover is strawberry floated but you couldn't really tell from the photo. Why do some eBay users upload 1 photo, describe it as 'GOOD' and call it a day? It's not hard to write a line or two about the condition. The same guy sold Torico as 'good' and its fine.

The N64 version of Dinosaur Planet has leaked online, interestingly, the build has Fox in the leading role.
