  1. I thought the statue was one of the few they didn’t get. Empire State Building & White House deffo, but I don’t remember seeing Liberty in bits.
  2. Just booked this for the family Ramblin Man this year just didn’t do it for me, and this way all four of us can go for not much money. Other friends going as well so should be good fun.

    Possibly, my Dad was an engineer by trade, he built a whole surround for the ZX81, including a hand built extension board so that the 16k ram pack and a joystick (an Atari controller) could be used at the same time. Probably the simplest thing but at the time my mind was blown, as were my friends who had to use the keyboard on theirs. I’ll have to ask him if he took any pictures of it, it was magnificent.

    Also 47 in August, played games since my Dad put a Zx80 kit together. I’ll still be playing when I’m on my way to the great Arcade in the sky.
  5. A Hot Wheels Mario Kart, yep I’ll be all over that, especially if it has cross play (me on Switch, son on PS4)
  6. Anyone got one of these? https://www.aldi.co.uk/pokemon-umbreon-switch-controller/p/713115467854102 Just wondering if they were worth getting over the Pro Controller or Joycons. Don’t have any stick drift, more for multiplayer stuff like Smash, MK8, etc. Edit: Found it on Amazon, for £6 more, reviews seem ok, and it has the ‘Nintendo Seal of Approval’, but so did Rise of the Robots.
  7. This was ok, wafer thin plot covered by some brilliant visuals. Kept us all entertained for a couple of hours so job done.
  8. Ok, I’ll admit it, you got me with that one. Well played sir, well played!
  9. More for the Play At Home scheme.. https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/play-at-home/ Also, Horizion Zero Dawn will be added in April. https://blog.playstation.com/2021/03/17/play-at-home-2021-update-10-free-games-to-download-this-spring/
  10. Ooooh, I like a bit of Mario Golf, this could be great fun.
  11. Had the Wii U version of this but gone in again for convenience and Bowsers Fury, which my son is really looking forward too. I know eBay value will have dropped because of the Switch version but should get something for it if Cex sell at £18 (but only £4 cash ) Ok, how is this possible, or am I falling for a joke here?
  12. I like it, I can hear the Bowie vibe they went for, especially on the title track, and Shame Shame Shame fits in much better when you listen to the album as a whole. Yes there’s the revert to type Dad-Rock stuff, but I’m a Dad and I like Rock so target audience. It’s quiet a nice way to spend 30 mins or so.
  13. Thanks to a reward voucher from work, I bit the bullet on this
