  1. I think Selleck would have been good but very different. I'm sure in some alternate universe, Raiders is still regarded a classic with Selleck as the lead. You can see glimpses of how Selleck may have played him in High Road to China and Quigley Down Under - and of course there's that Magnum tribute episode.
  2. This looks lovely but it kind of niggles me that it doesn't include the original Zelda Game and Watch. I can see why not, with the original being a dual screen, but it still niggles. And another vote here for a Game and Watch complete collection in one of these units (and another for the clamshells).
  3. I've resigned myself to finding very few cherries in the car boot pie nowadays. I occasionally get lucky and find something the hoovers have missed - got a complete copy of the GBA game Lady Sia from an odds and ends box for just a few quid - but generally I just buy valueless stuff that I might like to play on a whim. Mainly PS2 stuff. I picked up a couple of racing games and a James Bond game recently - all pretty fun stuff. I actually get more pleasure hunting for old books now. I like reading old Star Trek novels which can be had for 50p or less - and if I'm really lucky I'll get a Fi
  4. I have a tip for ironing boxes. Use greaseproof paper between the box and the iron. It offers a bit of protection from scorching and you don't get any fibres stuck to the box like you can if you use a cloth.
  5. Thanks @MikeBeaver, I might take you up on that once I've had jab no. 2.
  6. Oh yeah, you're dead close then. No worries if there's not room but the offer stands. We might get a heat wave and be able to work outside or something.
  7. @MikeBeaverif that cabinet with Mid Suffolk is anything to go by, I may be in your neck of the woods (I'm in Norfolk near Gt Yarmouth). If so, I'd be happy to lend a hand sorting through stuff one weekend.
  8. I'd love to see what you have available in terms of cib NES games, or just any with manuals.
  9. I always thought Schwimmer should've played Peter Tork in a film about the Monkees. Dominic West would've been a good Mickey Dolenz. They're both too old now though.
  10. This is getting on my tits now. It's obviously a case of unreliable memory, possibly more than one game merging together in the memory. It's Buck Rogers. Case closed.
  11. I think the two most obvious ones are Planet of the Apes (I don't think it's clear if it's destroyed or just buried but it's not in a good way) and on the poster for Escape from New York.
  12. Space Malfoy was definitely the best character in the show. Now it's probably that cat.
  13. Will do. The reserve is £150, I'll be a bit disappointed if it doesn't make that but we'll see what happens.
  14. Honestly, I know it sounds silly but the NT Mini is just a nicer design and feels a bit more premium. I also have the MegaSG and the SuperNT is on order, so I'll have my main 8-16bit games collections future proofed with the Analogue machines. But in terms of pure functionality the AVS is still a great device.
  15. I've never seen that caveat before, I think the manual just says it's PAL compatible. I've never had a game not work on it. I thought I had a problem with Firehawk, which is an unlicensed game, but then I manually changed the region setting to PAL and it worked fine.
  16. I'd already spent a fair amount on games over lockdown, not in huge chunks, just a steady stream of £40 - £100 amounts on games I'd been wanting in my collection. I had a moment of madness on the Analogue store on Friday though, and splashed out on a Super NT and an NT Mini Noir. I felt a bit sick afterwards, it's probably the most I've ever spent in one go on something that wasn't a car. If anyone wants to ease my burden, my Retro USB AVS is now up on Ebay. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customi
  17. Great choice. What about actresses? You could go for Sally Field, then you could watch The Poseiden Adventure either way.
  18. This was a conversation I had with a couple of mates. If you were locked in quarantine and only had films for entertainment, and if those films all had to star the same actor, who would you pick? For male actors I found it really easy. I went with Clint Eastwood in the end. I found it far more difficult to pick a female actor, especially as they had to be the star. I went with Jodie Foster which I think was a pretty good shout. Who would you choose for both male and female?
  19. Funnily enough, I've been playing the Domark F1 game on the Megadrive recently. It's really impressive and super fast. It even has 3D polygons for bridges, stations etc. It looks pretty good mixed with the car sprites. It's certainly not a simulation but it's a fun game. I also quite like Formula 1 06 on the PS2. I picked it up for about a quid at a car boot. It's a pretty decent simulation but if you turn on the various driver assists and go for short races it becomes a really fun arcade style racer.
  20. I’ve been playing a bit of Omega Boost on the PlayStation. I’m enjoying the fast paced, slightly hectic gameplay. The controls are simple and the action feels quite rhythmic. It’s really satisfying when you’re in the swing of things but when you lose your mojo it hurts! All good fun and it looks and sounds fantastic (I even enjoyed the FMV)!
  21. I don't think it's supposed to be games no one's heard of though, just games that aren't 'AA+' releases or first part titles but which are still worth playing. What 'AA+' actually means is still up for debate though I suppose.
  22. To be honest, I stuck to platformers because that was an example the OP used. I'd heard of most of these games before playing them but they're still less obvious examples I think. I'd never heard of Metal Storm before it was recently rereleased. Some examples of other games I'd never heard of before playing fairly recently (within the last couple of years) are Granada, Final Zone and Arcus Odyssey. All of which I love but none got a PAL release.
