    Tried Super Metroid. I can survive the levels that are just Samus riding in a lift.

      Did two more Zelda dungeons and got the Master Sword plus beat the wizard to get into the dark world this evening.

      Mrs Thistle has overtaken me on Yoshi's Island. I'm stuck in a castle halfway through world 5. I fucking hate the castle levels. I eventually got through the skiing level.

        As part of my voluntary work, on Saturday I will be function testing 24 Amstrad CPCs and 21 ZX Spectrums. How the hell I'm gonna be able to do all that in four hours, fuck knows.

          OMG the games are awesome!

          OMG what little SNES skills I had have atrophied!!

          A lot of Yoshi's have died!
          I got one of them over Christmas myself. Is it just me or is StarFox a bit more difficult than it used to be?

            Mrs Thistle completed Yoshi's Island ages ago and is now going back through the levels to get 100 points on all of them to open up extra levels. Having seen the one extra level she has opened so far, I'm not going to bother. But as I'm very, very slowly progressing through world 6 towards the ultimate showdown with the evil critter who stole baby Luigi and caused Yoshi to embark on his quest, the whole point may be moot. I may never get there.

              Add me to the SNES Mini club - they had one in stock at GAME at RRP, I had a gift card left over from Christmas and a bit on my reward card so it was almost half price!

              I'm gonna be watching Hakchi tutorials on YouTube, get me some more games on this thing.

                I managed to successfully complete the hack - over 200 games to choose from now!

                  Even with the hacked Mini, I've just spent another £60 on SNES cartridges. I'm fucked, aren't I?

                    Replayed Portal 2 recently. Still completely magnificent in just about every way. Everything about it should be taught in game design classes from now until the fiery end of eternity.

                      I bought SoulStar for the Mega CD the other day. It also includes a demo disc for... SoulStar. Surely this can't have been deliberate but things were different in 1994.

                        Picked up Okami HD for the Switch, as I never did finish it on PS2. It looks stunning.

                          It seems this thread is now retro and has become some kind of self-fulfilling prophecy.

                          I bought my first load of Super Famicom games today. I've been meaning to get into the import scene a bit more for a while now.

                          Oh, and some Atari Jaguar stuff because I am a masochist.

                            I'd pay good money to be able to play 'Wings' again, an old Amiga 500 game. WWI flying in an arcade style with a story as you progressed through the war. The original always crashed before you got to the end. I found a copy for the PC I used to have but that gave up the ghost too before I completed it.

                              Tempest 2000 rules though.

                                It does, that's why I bought it. Just the loose cartridge but £22 was the best deal I'd seen for it in a while. I already had the Saturn port but that has a few issues.

                                The masochism reference was referring more to the fact that almost every other aspect of Jag ownership is a pain. The expense, the scarcity, owning Kasumi Ninja... that kind of thing.

                                  is there a market for old Megadrive and X64 games?
                                  I've just found a load of them in the loft and I've no use for them.

                                    There's always a market for retro stuff - just bung it all on ebay and try your luck. You'll almost certainly get more money for it than if you flogged it to Cash Converters or CeX.

                                      I found this on an app for my phone last week. Very close to the original PC game in storyline and gameplay. It's already the best thing I've ever bought for under 2 quid.

                                        Finally collated my collection into a Google sheet.

                                        Don't know why the formatting is screwed up like that though - I've tried different browsers, safe mode, the Android app and I can't fix it no matter what.
