  1. Essentially a professional grade CRT. More used for design and video editing so the quality is just the next step up from standard CRT's
  2. This is probably the best advice, start small and portable and see if it is something you stick with. You have to consider if you do come to sell afterwards it's a little bit of a niche market really with only really a small portion of gamers that would take any CRT off your hands.
  3. A good OSSC you are looking at the same price of a good CRT but obviously is beneficial if you are limited on space etc. I have a little 15" Daewoo TV for my Scart connection consoles and to be honest I prefer it to using a convertor, convertor's are decent but there is a charm to having a set up much akin to what I might have had when I was younger and I do think they just look and perform slightly better on an original CRT (as they were designed for).
  4. Mine is on it's way, I imagine this question has been asked but I have not found an answer to it yet. As far as game settings, are there any recommended locations to go to find optimum settings for each game? Or possibly settings to find a balance between performance and battery useage?
  5. Thank you I figured it out before reading your post but yes it was the same issue, it seem's to have trouble with the extra protection with the bank accounts but it looks like it has gone through and payment sent now Quite excited
  6. So I tried to order mine last night after getting the e-mail. I tried to put it through and it just got stuck on working after I tried to pay. I then lost it, it did not show in my purchase history and going back on the steam deck page it asks me if I want to pre-order again. Go to steam support to try and query it, go onto purchases and it say's it's payment pending, did anyone else have that? I have still queried it with Steam despite it being there as I don't see why it would not just go through straight away?
  7. I'm always up for playing a few but like some have said I think largely the fifa group has moved away in other directions. There is so much choice to play these days why continue with what is essentially the same game year in / year out. I have a group that plays regularly from another forum where I typically get my fix a couple of times a week (ps4 at the moment) but it's not something I feel the need to play every week and the idea of committing to a league or something similar these day's feels like it would be tough to do.
  8. So I picked this up on the switch, thought it would be a great game to play in front of my daughter, maybe even encourage her to have a go (she's only 3 mind). The performance is not good if I am honest, plenty of frame rate stutters. That said it's quite a pleasant title, something a bit different to what I usually play and it looks pretty lovely so I am quite enjoying it. Glad I picked it up and hopefully at some point will get the little un to have a go which I am looking forward to
  9. This thread has I don't believe Rowling is personally creating the Hogwarts Legacy game either.... It's funny reading posts that state it's wrong for one franchise / owner etc but it's ok with another because he's not directly responsible or because he only every now and again makes a comment.... It seem's like double standards to me. Like I understand people not wanting to acknowledge or simply just ignoring the issues because they want to enjoy something that person has a hand in producing or creating but the oh but he's ok for doing the same thing but she's not is wrong surely? It can't be one rule for her and one for him can it? Just to further point out the issues with Musk - https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2022/04/elon-musk-twitter-terrible-things-hes-said-and-done So he may not be the same in that he might not be so vocal on his dislike for people with different coloured skin or people's gender but there are quite a few issues on that list that should make you sit up and think hang on he's on the same level if not worse (we only need to consider there is another law suit going against Tesla in the US over racism despite them having already been pulled up on it previously).
  10. I am quite a fan of the PS3 and that's in part due to the JRPG's that were released on it (though many have since come to other consoles or pc) but this was where they all started so at the time it was a brilliant console to me - Tales of Xillia 1 & 2 (these turned up quite late on from memory so got somewhat overlooked as people moved onto the new consoles) Tales of Graces F (I did love this game) Folklore Eternal Sonata (I think this was on the 360 as well?) Resonance of fate The guided fate paradox Trails of cold steel games It is also an era that brought us many of the game series that are still loved today, uncharted, last of us etc. So whilst the console may not hold up well when you consider a lot of the games have remasters and the such on newer hardware it has quite a place in Sony's history.
  11. So i have quite the backlog at the moment and having been mostly picking up switch games in recent months. I have 3 on my radar - diofeld chronicles (quite enjoyed the demo) star ocean (ps5) tactics ogre (this is the must buy for me)
  12. Thanks both, I'm typically against emulation if I can help it (I do enjoy playing with the original set up so knowing a patched cd-r copy is a viable option is good, I have spotted someone online selling them along with a cartridge that allows it to run (rather than modding the current Saturn, is it a Pseudo card?) but I wasn't sure if it was legit or not (they are on etsy so imagine there is a route back if needed).
  13. I am a bit dumbfounded by the Shining force 3 set up, it's a game I always wanted to play being a big fan of the originals and recently picked up SF3 on the saturn (my first Saturn and game too!). Am I right in thinking that there are 3 parts? That the latter 2 never left Japan? So I imagine the only way to play them are English translations either via emulation or back up copies through the Saturn using some sort of Pseudo card or something? Could someone recommend the latter option as it would be nice to play through parts 2 and 3 on the Saturn as well if that is possible? I have a mega drive copy of SF1 turning up in the next couple of day's so plan to play through that first but it would be nice to have all 3 parts of SF 3 ready to go when I do get to it.
