    Good to know, now I just need my psio to show up! My order has been sitting with a status of 'processing' for over a month, but according to the 'news' section on the website things are happening.

    Mine sat on processing for a week or two then changed to Pre-Order 2. I ordered on 15/01/19

    If you ordered before me maybe shoot them a message.

    Fly around some retro 3D game worlds inside your web browser:

    (Didn't work for me in Chrome, but worked fine in Firefox).

    I reckon it's a script-blocking plugin I've got somewhere. Thought I turned them all off, but maybe not.

    I've been bitten by the Saturn bug lately....
    Wanted to play my games in 60Hz but didn't want to ruin the console by installing a switch so decided to pick up a Japanese console off eBay

    Came in pretty yellowed but a quick session of retrobriting restored it to its former glory!

    Finally found myself the japanese 3DO FZ-1 that could switch between 240p and 480i.

    Whilst there's a mod to do this, I've been wanting a clean 'factory' style of this for a while.

    On another note, my US 3DO FZ-1 will be up for sale soon (not that it matters the region since they are region free).

    I didn't know this was coming out, but it looks like Turok is getting a re-release on Switch.

    More tedious game Restos!

    Did these for a friend after they were found in a house cleanup, but my god Stain removing shit while not destroying labels proved to take quite a while:

    The back needed about 20 minutes of scrubbing alone:
    2.JPG

    Why does everything I clean have to have spiders:
    3.JPG

    Did I say the labels were a pain in the ass:
    4.JPG

    Inside is totally corrosion free
    but this brought up a sore point, I was going to put a new battery in... My soldering iron is broken, but since I used my last new CR2032 on a motherboard the other day, it didn't matter in the slightest.
    NEXT TIME GADGET!!!:
    5.JPG

    Second was worse, and much harder.

    Did I mention how hard it was to get a cart looking good without ruining the label yet? If I didn't, it's harder when the label is already ruined:
    6.JPG

    GOD DAMN CARTRIDGE LABELS, I got careless for 3 5ths of a second and got a horrible result on the back label:
    7.JPG

    Praise the lord, no spiders for once:
    8.JPG

    At the risk of repeating myself, Labe... nevermind:
    9.JPG

    Slight corrosion on this, but probably still works:
    10.JPG

    And the kicker of it all, neither of us have a SNES to test the games ahaha.

    I'm constantly amazed at how big the original Gameboy scene still is. This guy makes custom aluminium housing and case replacements. Very tempting...
