    My 1000 model PS Vita developed stick drift. When I opened it up to replace the right stick, I discovered that it had been "repaired" before and there were a ton of things messed up. Honestly, it was lucky that the thing could operate at all. It also looked like soda had been spilled inside because it was covered in a dark, sticky, syrupy... something. Instead of trying to invest time and money into all the things that needed to be replaced, I decided to get myself an upgrade.

    Two days to arrive from Japan to Virginia and I couldn't be happier!

    I suck at this, my character build is barely getting things done, I do stupid choices then I get punished for this and have to reload. The game is peak indie jank and I love it.

    The eShop is having an indie games sale, so I got these two on digital for about $15 total.

    Suffer no sane person to live.

    I'm rather sceptic about having any Eldars on my crew, though.
    I mean, if I have to have an option of suffering any xenos nearby, I'd rather have a Tau Fire Warrior with a railgun as a guest sniper. If only for that sweet overkill they do because I don't care about touching xenos with anything other than chainswords, let alone for getting any close with them.

    Vide game related, at least... I bought this tote full of third party controllers from Facebook Marketplace. We counted 50 controllers, a couple of multi-taps, and two Switch steering wheels for $20! A local reseller who only deals in OEM game components just wanted to get rid of these and I was lucky enough to be the first person to see the listing.

    My daughter has already claimed the pink Wii-mote and the blue Rock Candy Switch controller, but the rest are all mine. Testing, cleaning, and possibly some repairs are going to keep my busy for some time!

    My favorite is probably this SNES turbo controller, but there are quite a few cool pieces in the bin!

    Random odds and ends from McKays today, which has also re-sparked an interest in buying a PS2 and the corresponding TFA game

    It's been a Sega heavy couple of weeks. I have a Game Gear flash cart on the way from Ali Express as well.

    A couple of things that came in over the last week from AliExpress...

    Gameboy/Gameboy Color flash cart clone. It works really well and it's going to be nice to not carry around the individual cartridges any longer!

    Sega Game Gear replacement screen lens. It's not the best fit and the power light display is off center. I'm really only concerned with being able to see the screen clearly since the old lens was very scratched, so these things don't bother me. For now.
