  1. Sorry a bit off topic but how safe is Facebook market place in comparison to ebay for example?
  2. Thanks hadn't thought to check Facebook, will have a mooch around later.
  3. My fire emblem 3DS XL powers up but hasnt been reading carts or the micro sd cards for a while and just sits on blank home screen, disgustingly been ding nothing but gathering dust for a couple of years. Nintendo no longer seem to offer repairs on the machine so I think it's time to pick up a 'new' 3DS XL so that I might get some use from all my old carts. Are there any new ones out in the wild anywhere or is it a case of picking the best condition used one I can find?
  4. Lol.....the height of the TV had been a very sore point in our house for the past 6 years, the joiner got blamed by the wife for constructing a 'ridiculously high tv unit that's almost a bloody sideboard' instead of the low to floor media unit she was expecting - I never admitted he'd closely followed my specifications. Apparently having the TV that high is tiring, something I never understood as its simply bringing it up to what would be wall mount height. Once builders have gone will have a go with playing on a screen lower than my seating position to see if it helps.
  5. Am currently being forced by building work and furniture cramming much closer to the TV currently but it's something that's been occurring for a number of years. I did just have a go on Quake with the fov maxed to 125 played through the first level quite enjoyably as well as most of the second level.....stuck looking for a door key now and felt things coming on so quit while I was ahead. Am hoping to try maxing fov on games that allow it and retreating to more normal viewing distances will help.
  6. I used to enjoy Forsaken back in the day on my N64 so am really puzzled why modern first person games give me problems....Am gonna take a chance on the Quake remaster on my switch and see if upping the FOV to max means I can enoy it without it turning me green.
  7. Does the switch version allow adjustment of FOV and whats the widest you can select it to go? -Edit- Just seen a youtube video that confirms FOV is an adjustable setting on switch so time to take the plunge.
  8. Used to get coach sick as a child, cars never really been a problem.
  9. Couldn't find a thread that focussed on this specific issue (some looking at frame rates more generally) but all the Quake love is making me feel left out because I find nausea a not too distant playmate in modern gaming. I played fps games extensively on my N64 and GameCube without ever encountering significant motion sickness in spite regular mammoth play sessions. I do recall the odd occasion of queeziness after a very long session on Jaguar Doom or AVP but on modern consoles and PC games I avoid games that use the first person perspective as find nausea arising fairly swiftly in them. Is this something for me to chalk up simply alongside other aspects of aging or is it to do with the higher frame rates used now (though have read some commentary suggesting low frame rates are to blame) or the fact the games are much more fast moving with lots of rapid turns and changes of the viewpoint? Would like to be able to address it as do miss this genre of game. I don't think frame rate is the explanation as if that were so would have associated it with historical console multiplayer sessions when frame rates dropped but wasn't my experience and probably started encountering it more initially on PC and then on modern consoles.
  10. Shame on you all....no-one has yet mentioned Flat Heroes.
  11. I purchased it for the switch, menu screen listed both japanese and international versions of the game. Not checked it yet but presumed the Japanese one would be intact with all is inherent political uncorrectness.
  12. This warrants a ban for being clueless about side-scrolling beatemups. Vendetta beats contemporaries like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe into a messy pulp its so much more fun (especially in 4 player) than any of those games (and I love all those games by the way)
  13. Cant believe no one has mentioned Konami's Vendetta arcade game yet which had stereotypical homosexual characters expunged from the western releases.

    Both such amazing games I'd probably agree that guwange edging progear just because its a bit more creative I thought. Unfortunately I never did find the necessary cogs to get properly into bullet hell games and would still prefer something in the more tradional rtype / nemesis style but those seem to have fallen out of fashion nowadays.

    Any word or updates as to when the taoplan shooters (and specifically Outzone) might be wending their way to Switch? Seems like over a year ago this was mentioned and would have expected to have heard more by now if it was going to happen.
  16. Does this look any good to those in the know? Dont think I'll ever be in the market for a PVM but feel I need to bag a decent CRT to put aside for when the man cave finally gets erected (pipedream for now but divorce / kids flying the nest is always a distant hope) https://ebay.us/7CNCbW
  17. The storage issues are beginning to negate the advantage of digital downloads (price, no cart swapping) on my switch which has a 256gig microSD card in it. I now look at download size when looking at games that were a maybe for me and if it's too big I am inclined to skip having to go through curating my catalogue of 'live' games.
  18. You've posted the only thing that could stink this thread up any more. Remember trying to buy some atari lynx stuff from these rip of merchants back in the day.... real trailblazing pioneers of the collector's item as opposed to dead console marketing mantra. Curiosity and Google got the better of me and I've just been to http://www.telegames.co.uk/ Fortunately only scrolled through a few pages before I came to my senses and escaped before they had a chance to turn me into a jaguar cuckoo / wife.
  19. Authentic Jaguar build quality right there.... its what Nathan and fellow Jag fans pay a premium for.
  20. Aces of the Luftwaffe collection is heavily discounted is it worth a go? I very much enjoyed AngerForce: Reloaded if that's anything to go by.
  21. Here's a comparison of the screen drawing side by side of the ST and STE version which throws up a bit of a surprise.
  22. Gunlord x is completely forgettable.
  23. Here you go Chris https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=40368
  24. Sorry for getting everyone's hopes up for an update....I only just discovered this and felt it had to be shared even if it's not yet completed.
