Picked up a fully Bc ps3 at a thrift shop for $50. It’s on on few 4.81. Is there any reason to leave it on that fw for jailbreaking or just upgrade?

Gotta love it when you get a few extras you weren't expecting. It's the opposite of the car market where you pay tens of thousands of dollars for a product and they try to con you with $12 floor mats and a $90 block heater as a "winter package" for $2K.

the official uk nintendo store likes giving away extras when you buy certain games from them. Miitopia it was a brick of mii postcit notes lol. Luigi's mansion 3 was a little ghost dog glow in the dark keyring.

One import one one regular, been eagerly waiting for my physical of unpacking from limited run, love the extra slipcase for it. Also super cheap puyopuyo tetris 2 turned up today.


Also wanted to use the amiibo functionality in splatoon 3 but for moment i don't fancy spending over £100 getting all the splatoon amiibo figures so this is the next best thing. Some really well made cards for 17 of the amiibo it's not all of them but pretty much nearly all released ones, at some point i'll get originals in future as i like picking them up.


The print quality is really nice, i know some of these knockoffs have some dubious quality printwork but not these,

Couple more switch games, not normally a lego game type of person but i like minecraft and this is in a very similar kind of deal. Can mess about making mini worlds to keep me amused. Really enjoying it so far.

Also supraland finally turned up from limited run today, took exactly one year from ordering to it turning up as it was october when they did the preorders.

You're going to need an off-site warehouse for your Switch collection at this rate :messenger_grinning_smiling:

Small box turned up from Japan today, taiko donderful festival special box from amazon japan. A nice selection of taiko themed goods not often taiko gets bundles like this.




some sat-box budget game compilations as i like these game some i already own digitally like the newer keshigomu otoshi board game & the matsuri minigames but they are nice to have in physical form so they are not locked to the eshop they are like £13 each so not exactly wallet busting.


Physical of dungeon munchies and a double pack of escape room type games bonus points been they are in english.


blair witch as japan got physical release &, plus ilvello and atomicrops

OK Pickups! There could be more, I think I've forgotten some stuff but this will do for now haha

As always, if you're on Instagram give us a follow @retrogamerx1987 as I post a lot of my pickups on there!

Recap of the last month!

Complete in Box Grape N64 console (My favourite colour)
Sealed Dreamcast Controller
Brand New old stock Sega Saturn controller
Panzer Dragoon Saga for Sega Saturn - on my wish list for a very long time
Splatoon 3 Switch - Great colours. I had a $100 voucher at a local retailer so I used it and picked up this console for the collection!
MacBook Air M2 - My old macbook was from 2015, served me well but it was time for an upgrade. Very happy with the M2. Perfect for my needs.
Mario Party 3 - I already had this game, but this was a box upgrade so sold my copy to buy this one.
Sleeping Charmander Plush - EB games had a sale so I snapped this up. It's a nice touch to the games room.

Few more pickups

Discovered there's a collectors version of superliminal so now i own 2 copies one standard one collectors, it's something i couldn't pass up on as i'm not kidding when i say it's one of my fave puzzle games ever i love the levels they are so cozy to play around in. It was a shock it evgen getting a physical release let alone something a bit more fancy, some nice bit's n bobs in the box plus it has an amazing lenticular cover too.

Superliminal was a great game, ran through it a few times back-to-back.
I love the enviroments & how surreal everything is. Also love it's packed with secrets too, only found a couple of the chess pieces but i want to find them all. So happy that it's no longer locked to been a digital title.

As for today switch game number 260 arrived earlier than i was expecting, still stoked this finally got a physical release.
 
Had a Sega-tastic day today!

My brother finally got the Saturn modded. It has the FRAM mod done so saves don't all dissapoear when the battery dies. It also has a Terraonion MODE installed with an SSD like the Dreamcast has done. I've had this Model 2 Saturn since back in the 90's, it's super clean inside and out so it was a great platform to modify.




Since there is no HDMI mod for the Saturn, it's using a RetroTink with a scart adaptor which honestly looks as clean as the HDMI modded N64, PS1 and Dreamcast, at least to the naked eye I see no real difference. The RetroTINK and scart combo is no cheaper than the HDMI mods though and doesn't improve the audio output like the HDMI mods do.

Pardon the spaghetti mess behind the TV, I'll be moving all my stuff into the recently vacated basement soon so right now it everything just hangs loose back there.


Also here is the Action Replay 4MB expansion cart, it's a pinkish grey cart with a shitty label, might get an official Sega memory expansion cart and swap the shells.


Got a couple Retro-Bit wireless Saturn pads to play it with. Super nice controllers that come in a very nice box. Pair-up was effortless and they feel exactly like the real Saturn pads.






Finally, the Genesis Mini 2 arrived today as well just as we finished setting up the Saturn. Timing couldn't have been better!

My brother's brother just had a birthday.

Got some games for the Switch. I just played Final Fantasy I-VI again this year, so this is perfect. I've wanted to play Trials of Mana and Wario Ware games are always great fun.


Got this Kotobukiya Siren model kit. I've wanted this for a long time. Somehow, I missed it when it released despite having a house full of Gundam kits. I'll have to do an extra special job on it. It's such a cool mecha design.


Finally, I got this Red Rocket attendant Protectron which at first appears to be a simple repaint of the standard statue. The bowtie, buttons, chest stripe and lightning bolts are molded in. I love the Fallout robot and vehicle designs and this little guy looks awesome with the others.

A nice box arrived today from japan some fun things inside this one. Firstly my Megadrive 2 mini & Megadora tower mini 2, first time i have even seen the retail box as it looks like nobody picked up the accessory set hell even amazon don't show a pic of the box nice that it's way smaller than the first one.


The extremely fun tsuri spirits saocon set


Limited edition of RPG time, has a few nice bits inside, a replica of Kenta's notebook sadly blank lines for all of it apart from inside first page, a pencil board and a soundtrack cd.



Finally picked up all the nettas


More joycon thumbgrips found some really nice ones on amazon japan plus an official switch stylus yeah i had no idea there was even such a thing till i saw a pic on amazon, will make certain games easier especially ones where i have to draw.


Final thing was the abarenbou tengu famitsu DX pack, held off picking this up for a while as it's kind of pricy.

Comes with a few extras like a couple of hand towels, some A4 clear files plus a wall scroll. The hand towels are basically like the scroll art but in red & blue with the main focus been tengu head or zombie head

I wanted the DX pack especially for these they come in a lovely smelling wooden box, the art is beautiful.

Wanted the collectors edition of a short hike for a while but i didn't have the cash at the time and it sold out stupidly fast no way i was gonna pay the prices on ebay from people scalping the hell out of it. Seems the stock SRG held back for replacements and damaged copies in the post got released for sale so i managed to grab one of the last handful they had left so pleased to have this one as it's got some nice things in it.



A visitors guidebook to all the features of the island, even comes with a pocket full of stickers in the back to fill in the circles as you find birds ect...





2 proper quality maps to the island they both have proper covers glued to them like real maps have.




The actual game plus a soundtrack


Plus some other nice bits in the final layer of the box an enamel pin a full set of SRG's usual trading cards and some really pretty postcards

I love it when collector's edition stuff like this has actual thought put into it. So many are just a steel case and a poorly painted piece of crap. I always love when the collector's edition stuff tells a story in itself. Good example off the top of my head was Halo Reach, which came with Dr. Halsey's journal which was full of cool little details.

On a side note, I assembled and painted the Siren model kit I posted earlier.

Fantastic job on the kit, painting/lining makes them look totally different. Even the cheapest plamo looks really good if you take the time to panel line the thing & then some flat topcoat.

Thanks! I actually have over 200 MG Gunpla kits in my house and several PG kits. I probably put more time into that hobby than into gaming. At first, I just slapped them together and lined them because I enjoyed the mechanics of the various kits more than the finished product but over time my collection grew and I started to question a collection without any effort involved beyond basic assembly, so I got an airbrush and started painting them. I've actually gone back and refinished several old kits since then. I try to do better/try new things with each kit now.
