Re: Games Completed 2018

Perhaps, but even though I like the plot and cast of characters, I'd say it's hardly earth shattering stuff. You can see the modest twists coming from more than a couple of miles, too. Certainly not a game I was playing for the story!

Re: Games Completed 2018

19-08 Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) Turns out that winning a war isn't the easiest thing to do. Especially not when the enemy has hulkingly monstrous machinery and weird weaponised blue energy at their disposal. Looking forward to dive in deep on tonight's podcast recording. KSubzero, did you ever play ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Been playing Darius Gaiden on the Saturn a bit seriously in the past days. Serious in that I'm actually sticking to one route and practicing it, as opposed to trying to see as many stages as possible, as I have been when playing the version on PS2 Taito Legends 2 in the past. And I'm starting to boo...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Quick question: How many of you have both a Switch and a WiiU hooked up / ready to use? *Shows hand*. Aside from all reasons mentioned (including a handful of VC games) I have a thing for that odd machine and the unique game experiences it offers. Games like Nintendoland and Game & Wario are still ...

Re: Retro gaming

Great post. I played through the first Wario Land last year on the 3DS, bit by bit. Found it enjoyable, but not as memorable as I wanted it to be, despite loving the oddball main character. In terms of weight and physics, the Wario Land games have always reminded me more of the earlier pre-Sonic Meg...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

If I may offer one bit of advice, there is a fairly climactic boss fight and sense of narrative closure at around the halfway point. It can be very difficult to continue playing immediately afterward, and a lot of people just bag it in at that point. So what I did was to take a calculated one month...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

^^^^ It's out of this world. I was always deliberating if I should get the Saturn version or not. It was getting pricey and I played the game on Taito Legends 2, but the Saturn version runs in native resolution, whereas on PS2 it's upscaled to the less than ideal 480i. Getting it as a gift has solve...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It does have that awesome Zuntata soundtrack, but I'm not sure I get the reference you're making... but maybe that's because the lyrics in Vissionerz are quite unintelligable to my ears?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A good friend came over from Japan and stayed two nights and we've been playing 2P Darius Gaiden (which he brought as a gift) and Layer Section for Saturn, ARMS, Smash 4 and Game & Wario multiplayer (together with the kids) and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Good times, good times.

Re: Make me choose between two games! (Forum Edition)

^^^^ I would say the Mega Man Collection (especially Mega Man 2, 3 and maybe 7 and 8), but if you're not a die hard old school platform fan, Shovel Knight might cater more to your sensibilities.
