  1. Ah right. I was worried they were trying to do a Disney and put in their wee magic film vault.
  2. Hey does anyone know why the movie Peppermint is no longer available on the platform? Very confused as it's their own production, so it seems odd to take it off. I sat to watch it with the missus last Saturday night and "sorry this item is not available currently" or some-such. Gits. I was in the mood for something sub-The Long Kiss Goodnight.
  3. I'm quite up for this tbh, and usually find at least some merit to many of Blumhouse's output. We watched You Should Have Left the other night, which, while seemingly a fairly standard haunted house thing actually had some great Lovecraftian imagery towards the end of the film. Sure it wasn't the greatest thing you've ever seen but we still got a kick out of it. For the budgets, I think they still offer good bang for buck and I'll always give them a go.
  4. It's finally gotten a release date! Wow, I feel like I waited ages for this. Sadly the longer this went on the less attractive it began to look, and getting bored of waiting I bought Team Sonic Racing instead which, despite some of you disliking here, I've absolutely loved to bits. I became a bit unimpressed with the lean towards what looked like more kart-racing styled weightless physics on Hotshot, when I wanted it to be a little more Daytona like, but that's just me. I might still pick it up later on though if I'm feeling flush. Is it getting a physical release?
  5. This is a pretty good platform, but my god content discovery could be easier. Even when you do a search. There's a ton of fantastic old kung-fu movies on there (Shaolin Drunkard! 8 Diagram Pole Fighter!), but you wouldn't know unless you follow the "you might like..." paths. You could be forgiven for the first week simply thinking they've only got a couple of dozen films on the whole thing.
  6. Are you all mad? This looks amazing. Absolute day one for me. It's exactly the kind of game I cream over. It must be a throwback to my heyday as I really respond to these kinds of platform adventures. Absolutely thrilled to see this, can't wait to play it.
  7. Well, I could watch them untouched on All4, or just buy the DVD's, but seeing as I pay Netflix a premium for my service I would rather use that. But if they're going to be thundering in, editing shows (that they had nothing to do with creatively in the first place) willy-nilly for Twitter-winning reasons, and seeing as I'm an adult who is also not a racist, I'll be cancelling my sub.
  8. Very disappointed with Netflix's decision to remove great comedies like League of Gentlemen and edit others like Peep Show. Not sure what they think it will achieve doing this, other than force me to cancel my sub. Sad about that.
  9. Ah I see. Fair enough. TBH I do agree with you and I also prefer the old AA battery approach. It doesn't have many supporters but it always made more long term sense to me. I've had a couple of wireless Logitech F710's for absolutely ages that use regular AA's and they have never let me down.
  10. I know what you're saying but it's something I've seen all over the place. Lots of YT videos, forum discussions etc. basically saying you will burn out the battery in your DS4 if you use a newer fast charging phone adaptor. /shrugs All I can say is I don't use one and have an old phone charger for the job, and both mine have been fine. Granted they are only six months old but still. Unless possibly @rafaqat is getting stung by fake PS4 controllers perhaps. They are very well done these days I hear.
  11. That sounds to me like you're using a fast charging phone adaptor and plugging it into the wall. Would that be right? These will kill PS4 controller batteries. I was lucky and heard about this before I got a PS4, so I use a much older phone charger for my controllers.
  12. Some fantastic Spanish language movies on Netflix imho. Watched both The Invisible Guardian and An Eye for an Eye recently. Both absolutely brilliant, though the latter was the better movie overall imo. Saw Luis Tosar in Sleep Tight too. He's a very good actor indeed. We watch in the original language with subs, so I can't attest to the quality of the dub.
  13. I don't think for that budget you'll get PS2 on anything. Maybe have a look at ETA Prime on YouTube. He has good tutorials for those ex-work PC's that you can pick up very cheaply indeed if you are savvy enough. I'm sure he had PS2 running on one, and he pays next to nothing for them. I would have a go myself but I could never be arsed enough with eBay or what-have-you to get one at the right price, and I don't really want anything bigger than an Android box in the living room.
  14. Quick update just to cover some of my earlier points from my post up the page. Have been using this for a week now so have a better idea of it. Bleedin' hell, epic post again. Sorry folks. Hopefully it gives you a better idea anyway.
  15. Oh I dunno. I built a very budget desktop just before lockdown that runs PS2 great. Been playing PES2 and Rez this morning in fact! Your processor is better than mine I think - I have an i3-8100, with an Nvidia GT 1050Ti. Runs PS2 great. Suppose like you say it depends on the games too, but you'll get a very good experience for not a lot of money generally.
  16. Personally I don't think there's any way around it. If you want the "best" emulation platform, it's a PC. Even on a small budget you'll be able to put a system together that runs pretty much everything. If you're willing to compromise some systems in order to have a living room experience, the Nvidia Shield I hear is the next best thing. They are quite expensive though, and even worse at the moment as there aren't any available anywhere. It's all a compromise one way or another. Decide on what compromises you are happy with and adjust your budget accordingly.
  17. Ah I see. Hopefully EmuELEC will take off a bit more now and start to support more boxes/chipsets. It's only one guy at the moment but it does look like he has some help, if the wiki is anything to go by.
  18. @Barnard - meant to ask you - which box is it you are using out of interest? Did you give EmuELEC a go?
  19. That all looks fantastic! Wish mine did this but I couldn't install a damn thing on the default OS. Tried a load of apk's but nothing worked. Not Mupen FZ, not MD.EMU, not Drastic or ePSXe. I couldn't even get the latest Kodi to install. That said, I'm extremely happy with my EmuELEC/CoreELEC double act right now. Got them proper bang on! I'm much happier running Linux anyway over Android. Really recommended for £37, but only if you are willing to ignore the Android part of it and use the SD card for these Linux based OS's instead.
  20. Lol! Well I figure if I don't just crack on and do it, we won't know. And I must know! Had some fun with it today. Quite nicely it recognises my already scraped games and images, which saves a ton of work. I'm not so fussed about video snaps as they take a lot of space up, but might give it a go at another time. N64 has really surprised me. Not that it's perfect, but it is most definitely better than the Pi 3B+ I've been using. The only real no-go game so far has been Killer Instinct Gold which is pretty slow. But I got Bangaioh working and Snowboard Kids! Sin and Punishment works!
  21. Sorry, don't mean to eat up the thread. Only posting in case anyone finds it useful. I'll stop soon. Huge post, in spoilers to save space ffs! So, next plan is to start aaaall over again, and copy all my stuff over "properly" - images included, and try to make a good showing of it. Apologies for the epic post, but hope it helps someone. I really like it tbh and am definitely going to be using it over the Pi 3B+ for the foreseeable, providing it doesn't screw up!
  22. Well, rather neatly the box has arrived today instead of Wednesday. Cool, because I have a bit of free time to spare. Straight away - the default OS installed seems next to useless to me. I tried to sideload a few apps using the AppInstaller on the main page as I don't wish to sign into the Play Store, and none of them worked, even after a reboot. Correction - Retroarch started but I couldn't get my controller to work. So, onwards to the main attractions. EmuELEC seems absolutely brilliant - so far. I haven't actually put any roms on yet! However, it boots neatly withou
  23. Just bought a T95 Max Plus after watching ETA Prime set his up on YouTube. Made sure I read some of the comments before diving in, as you can be sure people will uncover some issues that he might not have touched on. And sure enough it seems they have. Some WiFi problems being reported and the box needing to be reset on first boot with the SD card. One or two other small things to keep an eye on. I have Ethernet available though if I need it. It's a bit of a gamble but for £37 on Amazon I'm up for a project. I like the idea of EmuElec very much and would prefer to run that than the
  24. On reflection I think what was happening was essentially a tough opening to the game which has sent me scurrying away. Since playing a few hours on story mode I've unlocked a ton of items and outfits etc which will clearly aid me. Instead, I focused on my (lack of) abilities as being the main factor. I'm still a bit upset that these battles are quite so prevalent, but I think once I'm happy and au fait with the systems I'm gonna up the challenge level. Top game though, no matter what skill or (indeed platform) you play it on. I absolutely love the story. It's one of the
  25. Alright, quit rubbing it in.
