  1. 4 player outrun! Amazing! I need to go
  2. Any one know what the Edinburgh one is like?
  3. Does anyone know if it's possible to copy retro arch ROMs from usb to ps1 classic so that I don't have to have a usb key in controller port 2? Or is the only solution to have an otg cable? Thanks
  4. Even 11 year old me thought it looked shite from the start, or maybe it's when I saw it on TV and realised it looked awful!
  5. The 1080 interview with the main developer is brilliant. 1080 is just one of the best games ever made. It's a shame that nothing since has come close. Amped (and amped 2) is good, but I find the whole camera men shouting at you really annoying it never seems to just flow like 1080. There's never that feeling of just about holding on. Does anyone know if his other game carve got a non VR release? Or can anyone recommend a snowboarding game that does come close to 1080.
  6. @Dudleyin one of you vids you mention your other show "what to play" it might be because I use Firefox on android but I can't find this show, can post a link to it. I've tried googling too, but still couldn't find it! Anyway just I watched the c&VG episode, great stuff (the one with goldenaxe on the cover, I remember my older brother wouldnt let me read his copy of that issue many years ago!)
  7. This is a coincidence. Was downloading a spyro rom as my 3 year old daughter likes dragons and dinosaurs and I thought she might like playing about with spyro. I sort of ended up down a strange rabbit hole of reading about mark cerney and the playstation..anyway back to spyro. I watched a video of 3 and cringed at the skateboard bit, thinking this is early 2000 post tony hawk probably. So my best bet is spyro 2 then?
  8. No audio lag on my pc either. Never been an issue in any of the ps1 emus I've tried over the years. Though maybe I just don't notice
  9. Genuine question, I've got a pc under my telly that I use for emulation. It plays everything up to PS2 GameCube etcm it's got a Nvidia 1050ti so no 4k but that isn't end of world for me. Is there any advantage to having a series X ? I don't really play new games anymore.
  10. BR one and two were brilliant. I thought 3 was a travesty full of EA nonsense. I left it back to the shop and never played burnout again.
  11. So did the N64 or ps1 have a pro Evo game? (Or proper ancestor of pro Evo?). Edit: this seems to explain it https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro_Evolution_Soccer
  12. I'd read it if someone explains what iss on the N64 has to do with pro Evo. I bought iss on the N64 with N64 mag proclaiming it was best football game ever and better than any playstation football game. It seemed ok. Then four years later playing pro Evo on PS2. Im sure I've read they are the same series but pro Evo plays nothing like iss!?
  13. Great! Can you recall what replacement stick you bought? Was it as good as an official stick?
  14. Hamleys of Belfast , ha ha ha! Christ just googled a and f corner , it was there since 1938 on Shaftesbury square!? It may have closed down some time in 80s or early 90s or renamed or something. https://m.facebook.com/oldbelfastphotographs/photos/a.1729512510611138/1805819566313765/?type=3 Edco rings a bell , not sure I visited it. Maybe my dad took me there. This is all making homesick and nostalgic.
  15. Has anyone attempted replacing or repairing N64 analogue sticks? https://video-game-guy.com/the-best-n64-joystick-replacement-parts Any advice or warnings? I'm thinking third party sticks would be just as crap as third party pads from back in the day.
  16. The model shop! Loved that place! And leisure world, fond memories going with my dad. And a and f corner for spectrum games, I remember seeing switch blade on an st in there and wanting something better than our spectrum. Leisure world always seemed to be having smoke damage sales due to various bombings I think. 147 was probably more dangerous due to police station in a way: badly aimed mortar attack could be an issue thing is I grew up in fairly central Belfast in the 80s and 90s, the weirdness of the troubles is only apparent to me in hindsight (and because I don't live there anymore). Centre of Belfast could be well dodgey at times. Back then it was no man's land in the evenings. I really miss Belfast and want to move back, unfortunately my wife thinks n ireland is too bonkers, sees the recent rioting and thinks no thanks. I prefer life there.
  17. Yes I remember appollo. It's was a bit fancier as far as I can remember! (I was ten / eleven) Edit now I think about it I remember playing operation wolf or at least looking at it in an arcade beside Smithfield
  18. 147 members club in Belfast, a smokey dodgey shit hole. Treasure trove on castle Street in Belfast, even worse. Though I saw street fighter 2 for first time in there and my mind was blown 😂
  19. Sounds good. I ll not put in trading yet.
  20. Darwock decided not to proceed, so if anyone else is interested let me know
