Smash a PSTV? Hopefully he hasn't taken a look at the resale market lately because the value of it has exploded recently at $70-100 just for a used one.

Damn!  I still haven't opened my clearance one yet.  Was going to whitelist it, but haven't found a good set of instructions (haven't had time to look in awhile), but I'd be tempted to sell it at the prices on ebay.

I gave my stepfather one of the clearance PSTV bundles with the Dualshock 3 in it, and he gave up on using it after he found out that he had to create a PSN account to download the games. Ain't that a kick in the head? I'll get it back from him someday.

Oh, and Swordbreaker: Text Quest (no ads) is currently free on Google Play down from $2:

https://play.google....r2.game.android

You will have to change the language to English on the title screen after the opening cutscene. It's Shield TV compatible if sideloaded and works with a mouse plugged in.

It's weird. The PSTV is a better system than its reputation would suggest, yet I have little interest in actually USING either of mine. I got the first on eBay and the second from Waldemort back when they were quite affordable, and installed Henkaku on both. I gotta admit, though, I bought the second one for the included game controller first and foremost.

 

Er, anyway. After you've got Henkaku on the PSTV, running a white list is as simple as installing and clicking an app. I think you have to do that every time you turn it on, although the hackers may have fixed that with a script. Now that everyone's talking about it, I'm genuinely interested to try mine again! I'll have to dig through my big box 'o crap under my entertainment center to get it...

 

Also, Jose, you really, really should have known better than to turn off your system in the middle of a firmware update. That's a big no-no for electronics, and almost always ensures grief. The USB cables you described are indeed tough to find in brick and mortar, which is why I ordered several online... I think I used either Amazon or Monoprice.

You're right. You're right. And a lesson was learned here. A somewhat expensive lesson, but a lesson nonetheless. But I needed to leave my place in a hurry that day, and I never leave devices running when I'm not at home. So, to put this saga to bed, I'll be calling Razer customer support when I get off tomorrow afternoon. And if they can't honor the warranty, I'll ask the third party seller for an exchange. The good thing with all that's happened is that I still have the Shield TV. I played some sideloaded Feral Fury and Soul Knight on it this morning. Good times. And the Shield TV is a hundred times better than the Forge TV, but it'll make a good Android TV backup if I can get one that works.

Damn didn't know pstv had gone up, had thought about getting one for tv gaming but guess I'll stick with the regular Vita at that price

And, as an update on my dead Razer Forge TV debacle, I called Razer customer support and was told that they can't repair it because it was an "end of life" product that has since been discontinued. The guy that I talked to didn't even know what a Razer Forge TV was at first. So, back to the seller it goes. Not happy about that, but going through the headache of tracking down the right cable was just going to be too much for me to deal with. I'm sure that I'm going to hell now, but that was probably going to happen anyway with all the questionable decisions that I've made in my lifetime, and I'm too old to care!!!

Have a good weekend! :beer:

I never leave devices on and/or running when I'm not home either. I have this weird fear that something will catch fire if I do.

I always leave at least 2 computers going when I go to work. Sometimes I'll leave a few gaming systems on to either rack up hours to unlock things or download an update, too. My house basically uses more electricity than Thor did in the bridge scene in Thor: Ragnarok.

The Android port of Ultimate Chicken Horse has been unexpectedly delisted from the Google Play store. It was Shield device exclusive.

I would have bought it before then if I had friends.

Ooh, ooh! I know this! The Merge Cube is this squishy foam cube with patterns all over it. You hold it up to your phone and graphics are projected onto it. Well, they're projected onto your phone's screen, anyway.

It's augmented reality, but it doesn't work so great because you have to hold your phone and the cube all at the same time. It's better if you have a VR visor, but even then it's not great. If it tells you anything, they were selling them for a buck at Wal-Mart and people still weren't buying them

ArugulaZ, I can always count on you for the lowdown. I thought that the Merge Cube was some sort of contraceptive. And I was hoping it was one for ladies.

Ultimate Chicken Horse is back up on Google Play:

https://play.google...._content=detail

According to one of the developers on the Shield TV subReddit, it coincidentally "mistakenly" disappeared on the same day that the game launched on the Switch. Coincidence? I think not.

And it's still $11.99 on the Play store. So no deal.

In other news, I was finally able to reset my Razer Forge TV back to its factory settings by flashing it with a system image from the Razer developer website.  Then, I found out that it won't recognize external USB storage without a custom image, so I'm back to square one unless I only want to play Google Play Android TV games on it.  Ugh. 

 

I'm gonna do it.  Just not tonight.  :oldman:

Thanks!

Walletandgromice, I recommend that you quit your job or school, cut all ties to your relatives and friends, and fake your death with an elaborate scheme that involves doctored paperwork and a stunt double. That way, you'll have plenty of time to play these.

If that's not an option, you're not trying hard enough.

If you try harder and that still isn't an option, the following games provide a good value for the money:

Death Worm
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic
Pocket Rogues: Ultimate Edition
Reigns
Reigns: Her Majesty
Shootout on Cash Island
Unreal Estate

And don't forget you can get a refund within two hours of buying any app on Google Play if you don't like it! Just don't abuse it. ;)

Konami has put out a collection of picross puzzles for iOS and Android.  It's free, has no IAPs, and has a ton of puzzles (it looks like about 500) themed around Konami's franchises.  Although the listing says it contains ads, I haven't seen any in about an hour of playing it.

I've got a few Android devices to play television games on, but my only tablet is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I also have a JXD 7800 and a Shield Portable. No Android phone at this point. Apps and games don't work across all devices, so not being nosy! Just curious how you got it to work.

Also, Shadow Blade is free down from $1.99:

That's odd. The play store says the app is compatible with my kids' Galaxy Tab As as well. That should be lesser or even in specs/OS to your Tab 2, I think.
