I caved and bought Crash Bandicoot last night on PSN since it's down to £19.99

Started playing through the first game at 10pm and before I knew it it was midnight! I've missed playing a straight out and out platformer!
Is that the remastered versions or a new game?

hell of a price this (£29.99!)


You can now modify them as well to play other PS1 Games ;)
Now about £25 if you get it from Argos' ebay store. with the discount code from this blog post.


Talking of that discount code, I've just bought a GameGear and an Original Gameboy. My collection of the consoles of my life is getting closer to completion.

My gamegear was dreadful - SIX double A batteries.

But that wasn't the worst thing.

the WORST thing was if you plugged in a power adapter when you were playing on batteries it would trigger a power cycle and reset the game!

Worse than that was the Atari lynx

LOOK AT THE SIZE OF IT!



As if he casually stores that in a jacket pocket!

Never had the atari lynx but was constantly annoyed that the 'games' in California Games were different to the PC version

Don’t know why they are bothering

GAME is dead in the water and is no different than Cex stores these days

Next year will be the PS5 (or whatever they call it).

I think there isn't much further they can push the PS4 (or PS4Pro) so the PS5 has to be the next big thing.

In other news, I collected an Atari 400 this morning and have managed to get it working and hooked up to a TV!

With Sony not being there, it was all about Keanu in Cyberpunk 2077!

Xbox one x and 4k tv in the living room and an Xbox one upstairs. Both on big tv's. Love gaming. New FIFA every year and Love Elite dangerous although it is an acquired taste. At the moment as well I have been re-playing Star Wars, Knights of the old republic 1 and 2. Great games.
