  1. Boots are slowing down as the seasons change. Still, today's finds were mostly newer gen trade fodder or stuff I'll repair for my own use 2x wireless 360 pads, £1 New in box Nintendo 3DS XL charging dock 20p (appears to be quite rare weirdly?) Stack of common PS3, 360 and Xbox one titles for £5. PS3 camera 50p Gameboy advance + 6 generic carts (very rough shape, gonna mod it with an ips screen and new shell, couldn't justify doing it my own one), sonic generations and SF IV on 3ds, £15 for all 3 Found a 8bitdo sn30 pro+ new in box in a local crime converter for £20 yesterday
  2. Been a lean few weeks for retro stuff. Some nice pickups today though, dealers had rinsed a store hours earlier as the boot opens at 5am but I found an official Nintendo Gamecube RGB scart cable and Frankie Dettori Racing on Xbox, £2 the pair (Game weirdly is worth some money, it's a very late Xbox release). Had a fat ps3 for £10 also but it looks like the lasers dead, may fix that up though.
  3. Is the Pico worth bothering with? I modded my US DC by swapping in a UK power board and removing some 12v rail components from the board as I used a GDEMU in place of the optical drive. Swapped in a battery holder and resetable fuse otherwise
  4. I've hit my limit in terms of space, everything is crammed into my box room that I've been WFH from the last 18 months. I've sold off a fair bit and swapped over to flash carts and ODE's where possible. Shaking off the collector mentality is difficult though. I'm reluctant to get rid of some of the rarer stuff even though I have other ways of playing the games (but as always, never the time)
  5. A couple of years ago, a seller at a local car boot in Cardiff had a lockup to the side of the yard where the car boot was. He specialised in music kit mostly and the one time I was able to go inside the lockup, there was literally Atari ST's everywhere. He must have had 50+ of them. Always wondered if there was a falcon buried in there but I never got the chance to look inside again.
  6. Having nearly reached the end, it's average but a decent watch. It pillages a lot of plot points from better films but does enough of its own thing. It's several magnitudes better than Army of the Dead if compared to another high budget streaming film of late
  7. Watching it now. Pleasantly surprised at it not being terrible.
  8. Patiently waiting for more boots to reopen here in Wales, any longer and I'll have to resort to crossing the border. There's one left running in Cardiff but that's closing in 12 months due to the land being sold, the other large one has yet to reopen under a new management. Today's find was a Xbox 360 S 4gb with skate 3 in the drive for £10 and a very meagre selection of 360 and PS2 games thrown in, nothing of note today.
  9. This morning finds: 50p each on PS2 Burnout revenge X2 Sonic mega collection R Type Final Wired Xbox 360 star wars controller £3 Xbox one kinect sensor £1 MacBook air 2009 + psu £25 (rough shape, screens dying, worth more as scrap honestly) And another Facebook find, 360 bundle, 37 games + a slim console and 2 pads (NO FIFAS!!!) £30
  10. I did try asking if it still available but someone is collecting it all today. It's a lovely looking bit of kit but largely useless
  11. Hit a few second hand shops on my day off. R Type Final and Strikers 1945 1 & 2 on PS2 for £6, wiimote motion plus controller for £2
  12. Local facebook ad popped up, what is that PC with the dual floppies? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/122600919947241/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_top_picks&referral_story_type=top_picks&tracking={"qid"%3A"6971409867655712538"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"481136253406245010"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A481136253406245010%2C\"target_type\"%3A6%2C\"primary_position\"%3A0%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A3844402184150056960%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A501%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3A21%2C\"grouping_info\"%3Anull}"}
  13. Looks like Splott Market is shutting down within the next year, sites been sold off. Fingers crossed the other Cardiff one returns as rumoured or that's basically my two main boots gone in the space of 2 years
  14. I've picked up a lot of weird and wonderful stuff over the years but I've been booting for probably 25 years on and off so I've some mileage on me haha. Boxed Virtual Boy £5 Boxed Black Sega Sports Dreamcast £5 Snatcher / Guardian Heroes / Castlevania Symphony of the night (stupidly sold all of them as a poor student, paid less than a fiver each aaaaarghh) 2 Xecuter LCD front panelled Xboxes for a fiver. Boxed Mega CD 2 for £10 Last 2 years brought me a CD32, Amiga 1200 and a huge joblot of Amiga 4000's, 2000's, a 1000, a PPC powered amiga plus more but that was blind luck and the house clearance seller not knowing what he had.
