If you add "complete in box" as a requirement, I know that at least of two of the 25 first orders will stay within Germany and have a good chance at being first in this batch from that.Who will be the first to recieve a Pyra? please post if you get yours!
I disagree. I think that Pandora looks better when it's not neglected as if it's waste but instead given the proper care that it deserves.Matty, whatever you do, DO NOT get your Pandora re-painted. The patina of years and years of use and abuse is just beautiful.
And it allows save states, hacking, back-ups of save files and roms, online for some games that normally do not have it, etc. Emulation is often the best way to play games. If it was not for the Pyra then I would have bought a Pandora as well. But as an instance of the Osborne effect I did not buy the Pandora because the Pyra would soon come out. Turns out it was not that soon, but I'm still happy that I waited because that's still the cheapest way to get the best version (always wanting the best version of some product is another effect but I do not remember the name of that).Pandora/Pyra are for me Ideal Every Day Carry Handheld, because due to the Emulation I don’t have to carry extra Cartridges and got my whole Retro Games whit me
Not even NES games? They tend to have a lot of repetition making the player do an easy part of the stage again for dying at a part that's much later into the game. And if you lose all lives you'll have to repeat an even bigger part of the game. Modern games luckily tend to not have this issue but NES games often do and therefore become much more fun once save states are used to retro-actively fix this issue.I don't think all emulators on the Pandora support save states. I know some people complain about that for some emulators, but I can't remember which ones. All I know is that I've never got the hang of using save states. I mostly emulate games as god intended.
That seems to normally be the argument of why these things are beautiful. But I'll probably never share that opinion. The random damage from use is ugly to me and the story they tell is just "I have been used a lot. The end." which IMO is not a compelling story.The thing about patina is the appreciation of the story and the relationship between man and a tool doing the work necesary to fix things in the universe. If you play guitar, you will know that you can buy or pay someone to make a guitar look like it has been beaten up and played for ages but there is nothing quite like the patina of an aged guitar that has the the cracks and chips and paint peeling off from your playing.
If it looks used, then it's safe to say that the owner neglected maintaining it and thus did not care a lot about it.If something's been used a lot, you could probably safely say the owner loved using it. I'm sure you could see that slightly more favourably, even if you don't quite find it compelling.
What puzzle games?On other systems I mostly play puzzle games
Mainly columns on MD/G, tetris on Gameboy (although mainly supplemented by Heboris more recently), and MrDriller2 on GameBoy Advance.If it looks used, then it's safe to say that the owner neglected maintaining it and thus did not care a lot about it.
Anyway, you could buy those old cases from ED. Supposedly they scratch easier which means you'll get the look you want quicker.

my obsession is peak-era products.wanting the best version of some product is another effect but I do not remember the name of that
you don't use save states in puzzle games? c'mon!Yes, save states would probably help my progress in Mega Man I, which is pretty much the only NES game I've spent a lot of time playing. On other systems I mostly play puzzle games and arcade games, and even then I don't tend to use continues.
