Sorry I am late with my yearly personal post.

You know the drill this last 7 years or so what's the good and bad of 2015 for you.

For me

The Good

After wishing all these years and almost giving up hope I was reduced to tears of joy at the Shenmue 3 announcement. A dream come true.

Changed jobs to one closer to home with better hours.

Enjoyed The Order 1886, Halo 5. Uncharted Collection.

Got shockboxes and inserts for all my MVS carts.

Got my faulty CMVS fixed for free off guy who done my shockboxes

Happy marriage and good health.

Expanding my tastes and really discovering the goodness of Scotch whiskey.

Purchased lovely ltd edition silver Dreamcast..


weather here up north floods ect

Pretty poor year for modern gaming I thought, in fact each year since 2012 has just got leaner.

Expanding my tastes and really discovering the goodness of Scotch whiskey. Maybe too much at times.

Old habits die hard but do die, sadly new ones come along which could be as destructive as the last.

Grandmother died but 101 was impressive age to reach and she had a fruitful life.

The world is going to shit, Isis hate mob ect bastards.
The good:
- Found and bought some great games.
- Started practicing Aikido.
- Got some new pets (a Leopard Gecko and a Crested Gecko).
- Found a nice control panel surround for my New Astro City cab.
- Lego Land Denmark (full scale X-Wing made of Lego).

The bad:
- One of my Leopard Geckos died.
- Humanity or rather inhumanity.
- Announcement of people getting fired at work.
My arcade stuff

"ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!"

- Yakuza 5
- Buying games from forum fellow Green Beret
- Tasting good wines
- Enjoying for the first time Japanese food
- Repair of the apartment

- Again problems with the right eye
- Divorce of a family member
- Terrorism
- More pressure at work
The Good

-Shenmue 3!
-Moved to a new house, where I can probably fit an arcade machine in eventually
-2D retro gaming - it's all I play and there's so much to play
-Made some new friends.
-NEW 3DS XL. I only had a small screen old 3DS before so enjoying the difference.
-Neo Geo - enjoying mine a lot right now.
-This year I discovered Pad Thai.

The Bad

-I missed Ste a lot. Where does he go??
-Not that I play modern games much but too many sequels (Halo 5? COD 10, Forza 6, MGS 5 and so on).
-HD TV. I finally got one and realised that if you watch SD-TV on it (all the decent channels cost more to get in HD), it's much worse quality than an SD TV. A step backwards.
-Neo Geo game prices continue to rise. Where will they stop?
-NG DevTeam: After a period where their games seemed to get better and better, peaking with Fast Striker maybe? they now seem to be going backwards in quality or releasing unwanted Metal Slug clones and random perfectly ok schmups that no one takes much notice of (Razion, Neo YXY). Although personally I feel sore I missed out on Razion Smile
Mini-Reviews of films I have just watched :
Mini-Reviews of ZX Spectrum games :
Thanks for maintaining the tradition - reminds us of the human side behind the avatars! Thumbs Up

The Good:
++ 1 month Backpacking trip to Myanmar in July '15
+ Financial and job stability
+ Family and friends
+ Started learning Mandarin Chinese
+ Some movie highlights (new ones and classics)
+ Discovering some PC gaming classics
+ Re-Discovering Vietnamese iced coffee

The Bad:
-- One hell of a busy job
- Way too little time for Arcade and Neo Geo gaming
- Neo Geo games once more getting ridiculously expensive - WTF?
- Various global incidents and developments
- Slightly unimpressed by The Force Awakens - or is it just me?

Otherwise I can only say that I'm looking forward to this year - I hope that we can count on the annual SO WATCHA WATCHA WHAT YOU WANT thread? Wink
