I've been playing the latest Tomb Raider and Just Cause 3.

I just heard they are coming out with a sequel to Red Dead Redemption. That was one of my favorite games on the 360.

Day of the Tentacle for PSVita, I loved old LucasArts games as a kid, and wish they would put up The Dig, Full Throttle, and more of the Sam and Max stuff..

So I fell into it... I stopped by GameStop on the way home from work and picked up Dark Souls 3. I think I will make a char and do some reading before I jump in head first this weekend.

DotT is in my wishlist on GOG. I've fond memories of that game. Just waiting for the inevitable point it's discounted (/Yorkshireman).

Absolutely fantastic game, narrated by the late great Rik Mayal :)

I installed RetroPie on my Raspberry Pi 3. Already put in dozens of PS1, NES and Genesis roms. Seems to work great with PS3 controllers too. I probably need to pick up some cheap bluetooth controllers dedicated only for this purpose. Great platform to play old games. :)

Did you install it over the vanilla Raspbian distro?

I've had the Pi3 for a couple weeks, I'm really impressed what $35 gets you. My list of "one day" projects has doubled.

Make yourself a USB arcade stick for AdvanceMame. I've also got a old ZIP Stick (better Competition Pro 5000 knock off from back in the day) that I've converted to USB to use with an Amiga emulator :)  Still on the look out for a Suncom Tac 2 in decent condition. That was my joystick of choice... Getting them is a real PITA though.

I've only just got my Pi2 running Retropie... They need to stop updating it so fast ;)

Nope, I didn't install it on top of any existing Raspbian. I used the distribution they have here: https://retropie.org.uk/download/ To be honest I haven't even checked which Raspbian it runs on. :P

Yeah, I should! I think I have some old USB joystick at my parents place. I need to see if it still works and is it any good. :) Wireless joystick would be awesome since I'm using the RaspPi with my TV. :P

I installed it over the top of Raspbian since I have other stuff to do with that Pi... but I noticed MicroCenter has Pi3 in-store for $30 so I might pick up two more and use one for RetroPie and one for Kodi. It might be cool to put 4 in a clear acrylic case with a PSU.

And luckily I found my 2TB HDD from 2011 stuffed with ROMs and BINs from a coworker who was a crazed MAME fanatic.

Full Throttle is getting remastered next! Until then, you can get The Dig on Steam/GOG and Sam and Max also on GOG.

Best. Joystick. Ever.

I had one back in 85/86, and it only dies because it fell off a chair and broke the shaft internally.  Kicked the shit out of all the Quickfire and Hotshot joysticks we went through that only lasted weeks...

Day Of The Tentacle has been remastered on PC if you haven't seen that.  Full Throttle was cool but there wasn't any way to NOT finish the game if that makes any sense - you just had to keep trying all the combinations.
