He's gone Xbox crazy! Just bought this lot for £30. Very happy with that deal.

But why? Your 360 could have played most of the XB games anyway? 

Just wanted a huge box in your house? 

Keyword is "most." It won't play DOAX1, so I needed an OG Xbox. Plus, I'm somewhat of a collector, and a good deal is a good deal, so nice to have an extra couple of old consoles I've missed out on. Will be able to pick up any OG Xbox games that won't work on the 360 now too.

OG Xbox is the shizzle. Good buy.

Cheers! Looking forward to playing it. It's amazing how well some games still look on the OG Xbox. Tecmo at the time really got the most out of it, hence DOA3 and DOAX1 still looking superb today.

I still think the remake of Conker looked ok, but then the fact its censored MORE than the N64 version makes it inferior.

See if you can find the Panzaar Dragoon and Jet Set games on there. SEGA's support of the console was probably one of the best things about it!

Took your suggestion, Flynnie. Few new additions.

Awww i miss the ELSPA ratings, they used to have an office in my small town which is in the middle of no where!

How do you find the time to play these old Xbox games?? Or are you just collecting?

lol I don't have the chance to play almost every game I buy. It is really just for collection's sake, and the hope that one day I might get around to them. Can't resist buying things if they're cheap. It's usually the RPGs that I don't have time for, but can't pass them up. I should be mostly done for now with picking up new games unless there's something else I'm desperate to add to the collection.

Good job Flynn, the lan adapter is something I definitely consider too, although I hear any adapter works cause they're standard and I hear there are cheaper, faster alternatives than the expensive Hori one.

All of that is true, although not in Australia. Looking at the LAN adapters in retails stores they are more expensive,although 'faster', but for that to come true Australia would need faster internet in the first place!

I am getting 4-5mbps even with the LAN adapter. I had it tested (from Japan) before it got here and it got speeds of 12mbps. 

None the less I didn't mind paying for it, if you have one from the Wii or WiiU they also work!

I watched this a while back, that's why I was mentioning that there exists cheaper alternatives that do a better job.

Also thanks for the video Rudy, you know how pathetic my internet speeds are already though ;/ , even at the moment i'm getting 4mbps, i'll probably get 10mbps when they fix it. Strangely though even at 4mbps I am not having that much problem playing my Switch online...

Switch games that play online like MK8 do not require very fast connections. I guess ere aren't really any right niw on Switch that do. You'd probably run into more issues with more demanding games, or if you're doing something else with that limited bandwidth, like i your phone or laptop or all at the same time are downloading system or app updates. So long as your Switch is the only system pulling on that bandwidth though you should be fine for the most part.

Needed a new gaming headset cause my old Turtlebeach Z11 headset is dying, so I ordered this one. I had no complaints about Turtlebeach before so I went once again with one of theirs. The XBox One themed Recon 50X was cheaper than other identical models sporting other colours, so I went with that one. Also the others they had in stock on Amazon France didn't have Amazon Premium shipping, and since I am on my 30 day free trial, I wanted to benefit from that too, so my choice was made, especially since I'd like to have it fast so as to already have it for upcoming Minecraft Switch streams with Mush on his Twitch channel. I like about it that the mic is detachable, so that you can also use it like regular headphones with a variety of devices without it looking like a gaming headset.

And then I also ordered the following. The screen I usually play on is only 720p, which didn't matter much so long as my only HD console was the Wii U and games on it practically never ran at native 1080p so I wasn't losing any detail. However now that I have a Switch and some games on it are 1080p in docked mode, I wanted in on those details without having to break the bank for another TV that would display more detail. I have a LCD computer monitor that is 1080p however, but a couple years old and it only has VGA input, so since the Switch dock only has an HDMI out, I ordered this adapter. Also my usual screen doesn't support full RGB range, but my monitor does, so I'll get a better range of colours as well when I play, just by ordering a simple, quite inexpensive adapter. User reviews tell me that it works for PS4, so I don't see why it shouldn't work for Switch.

Yea, I am hoping Smash will be fine when it comes out, same with FIFA and obviously F-Zero online Smilie

Did your VGA adapter work? I reckon there's a massive difference between playing Zelda in 720 and 1080! Looks great either way though.


Random purchase, it was only $18 AUS, so not that much! Always heard good things about it back in the day

Yep it did for what I wanted it for. It's advertised as compatible with up to 1080p but when i tried it in 720p i got crackling sound for some strange reason. Then i tried the adapter with my Wii U in 1080p i got a weird glitchy image. but with the Switch dock, in 1080p it works flawlessly, which is what I wanted it for in the first place so that's all good.
