I should probably elaborate, year 1 psychology:

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%2 ... y_of_needs"

You don't need much tbh, you can only progress to the next level of needs once all the lower level needs are satisfied.

I got kicked off my computing degree, from there on in it was all down hill.

Uni is purely for drinking, shaging, taking drugs and making a **** of yourself. I wish in could do it all again (the same as last time :))

Maslow's a dick.

I know what you mean about kickstarter projects kern. "$80 iPhone stand, pledge $1000 and get an exclusive sticker with your name on it. Pledge $10,000 and get a dinner with the guy who just mugged you" :roll: But that's the crap that you get with free enterprise. It does also allow people to kickstart a business that they'd never otherwise be able to the old fashioned way. No loans, no proof of market, just bulk funding from the customers themselves. And it's another internet driven initiative that cuts out a huge chain of middle men. Investors, retailers, marketing. You pay the source.

All basic models are based on the "rational man". It makes life easier thinking psychotics are irrational.

Stop hating on kickstarter Kern. A fool and his money are soon parted. This way the dick with the swindle gets all the cash rather than some hedge fund anus

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013- ... -13-months"
Last spring a board game entitled The Doom That Came to Atlantic City drew a lot of attention on Kickstarter. $122,874 worth of attention, to be precise. Not too shabby for a developer only looking for $35K. Unfortunately, 13 months later, the project has been cancelled as the developer, The Forking Path, ran out of money.

"The project is over, the game is canceled," wrote the project lead Erik Chevalier in a Kickstarter update. "Every possible mistake was made, some due to my inexperience in board game publishing, others due to ego conflicts, legal issues and technical complications. No matter the cause though these could all have been avoided by someone more experienced and I apparently was not that person."
This dress powers up the shot.

Mine arrived sometime this week, picked up today. First impressions, seems well built and the controls and screen are excellent. Need to sort some emulators out next.

Great! I was preparing myself for the moment where I wonder 'why did I order this piece of tat'.

Did you have to pay import tax cools?

No import duty - it was marked at $30 value.

I picked up the package wondering what the hell I'd bought that (a) I hadn't put works shipping address on and (b) wouldn't fit in my letterbox.

One thing I just noticed - the FAQ says "A power adapter specific for your country/region will be included with the console."

Yeah... about that. I'm not in the USA.

We have a winner.

The screen is stunning, the dpad is good(not quite SNES standard but very good - I'm able to do all of Ryu/Ken's specials without issue in SF2SCE), the audio is good - stereo is nice for a change, and it's powerful enough to run 0 frameskip Mega Drive with all the accuracy options turned on. Haven't tried anything more advanced yet.
