I started steam when valve released Half Life 2.

you could pre order the game, download it, install it and it would activate at midnight on day of release to play.

most of my games are half life/ valve related.

stalker bundles, doom bundles.


you still playing Forza Horizon 5?

so i'm just about finished clearing out all my old consoles and games.

i've made £850 i've got a box left to get rid of, of xbox, wii stuff

 

the reason for the clear out is make more space and i dont play them anymore.

even if i wanted to play them i couldnt cos most of the old consoles stored in the loft for 20 yrs

were dead when i tested them.

nes,snes,saturn,ps3,xb360 all dead

 

so the moral of the story-

keeping electronics for years for nostagia seems like a false economy and the chances of consoles failing increases with age.

Anyone playing Elden Ring? Really awesome RPG although it is super tough you die often.

I was massively into computers and gaming as a kid...quite the contrast to the other side of me which was hugely sporty and into football 24/7 too.

 

Amstrad CPC as a kid in primary school, then moved onto the Gameboy, SNES (the best console ever in my opinion), Mega Drive and later on...the PS3 (although I only really played COD on that with work colleagues).

 

Looking to get back into maybe some retro gaming on the laptop...any suggestions? Are the older games free to download now? If anyone knows of any sites to go to, give me a shout.

SNES best console ever? 100% agree!

You can download emulators and ROMs for your console of choice. technically it is not legal to download ROMs if you dont have the original game in cartridge format but really these games are really hard to find now.

 

I can give you a link to a site with SNES emulators.

 

https://www.emulator-zone.com/snes/

 

You are going to have to find ROM sites which are sometimes shut down by Nintendo...

Anyway played Half Life Alyx on VR?

 

I've got to the bit with Jeff but am just too frightened and sickened to continue playing....... 

 

I love the Half Life series though and Portal....those are the two games which got me back into gaming.... I always upgraded my laptop just to be able to play the new games in the series. I dabble with other games but nothing captures and excites me the way the Portal and Half Life worlds do.... They've got to be GOAT games.

i've been watching the prices of used psvr headsets on cex for the past year or so.

unboxed they were £90 then up to £135.

i checked yesterday and they were £65. i've never seen them that low

so i traded in a load of old games and got one.

haven't tried it out yet, i'm downloading a few psvr compatible games at the mo.
