Re: Videogame News

Very true.

In other news Cuphead is out on Mac (via Steam), and is on special this week! As a non-Xbone customer, this is a much cheaper option for me.

Re: Videogame News

Come on Konami... add pachinko machines to Survive! Don't hold back!

I was trying to think of other Konami franchises, and really, there's not a lot that they actually own. Years of third-party IP doesn't leave much in the coffers.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

According to my receipt from PSN, I bought Valkyria Chronicles II on 28th March 2016, and as of this week I started playing it on the Vita. Primary observation: John Dimaggio's voice is a very familiar voice to my ears. Rumour has it the first game is better, and if I purchase it now I may get to pl...

Re: Games Completed 2018

Finally won the World Series in Out of the Park Baseball 19 (after 5 seasons as an expansion team) so I suppose it can be looked upon as 'finished'. Unfortunately it was the season where the game decided it would do everything it could to get me fired, so it wasn't actually very enjoyable. I might ...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Watched Gareth Evan's latest - The Apostle I experienced a moment in this movie (a movie I've really been looking forward to seeing) where my initial enthusiasm gave way to a disappointing realisation that - this really isn't working for me . Part of it may just be my expectations - after seeing Gar...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Mohawk (2017) - after seeing the wasted opportunity that was The Belko Experiment, it was refreshing to see a movie like Mohawk. It's a film with a considerably lower budget and limited resources that works very well, and actually uses those limitations to its advantage. No wasting opportunities her...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

The Belko Experiment - for those unfamiliar with the movie: imagine a satire about the competitive cutthroat corporate world, where people are pitted against each other in a life and death struggle for survival, and then take the satire out of it. I like the cast, and I like James Gunn who gets scre...

Re: Games Completed 2018

Dragon Quest VIII - 3DS I did it! I got out of the casino, recovered from a slight gambling addiction, and got back to eventually saving the world, in around 62 hours game time. After finishing the game and discovering there's extra post-game content, including an alternative development relationshi...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Maniac in a nutshell: easy recommendation, though I don't think it earned it's ten episode running time. If it was a tight 4-5 episodes, or movie length, it would be something even better - not every story benefits from a longer, serialised format. But yeah, still a lot of great ideas, that I won't...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I’m two episodes into Maniac. I really like it so far. I’m savouring it and watching on a proper TV rather than watching it late at night on the phone. I just got to the end of that last night (won't spoil anything)... The set design of that show is fantastic! A lot of effort went into the details,...

Re: Videogame News

Never bought any of the games, don't care for The Walking Dead in any capacity (which I say as a horror movie fan ), but the way it was handled was super-shitty. To outright steal a quote from this Waypoint article : " Shit happens, but it didn’t have to happen this way, and it’s a failure of imagin...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Sat down to a quick spin of Spintires (sorry, still calling it by it's older beta title), and did the tutorial... then a challenge... then dabbled in the single player, where I managed to deliver a load of small logs by around 3am (in-game clock), with sparks still flying out of my truck. It's niche...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I do get that people are upset that they’ve paid for a full season and they probably won’t get it. As a consumer you’re absolutely right to ask for and get a refund (and people already are for the steam version). But I also think all those ‘if they cared about the game they’d finish it for free!’ p...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I recently acquired (courtesy of Mak Japan ) a Zero Wing PCB, so I swapped out the Progear CPS2 in my sit-down cab, and also swapped out the Dodonpachi DaiOuJou PCB for Tatsujin in the cocktail cab, and had myself a Toaplan history lesson... oh, and fun. It's always jarring going from the manic, tin...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I played a bit of Kerbal Space Program on the PS4 at the weekend, and it's probably not for me. Disregarding the UI (you use the stick to navigate menus, and not the D-pad, which must be a contravention of human rights), I found the flight controls pretty baffling. They are the pitch and yaw model,...

I was convinced you were fucking with me but I looked it up and I stand corrected because that's apparently a thing.

This really hammers the point home just how narrow my tastes actually are...
I can’t relate to this post at all!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play Real Bout Special: Dominated Mind on my Japanese PlayStation Slim, with the PlayStation 5” LCD screen attachment! ;)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I was going to say "at least the Neo Geo Mini has Cyber-Lip", but I saw it a ACA release on the Switch today, so that's null and void!

Not the best game, but I didn't really get ported either, until now.
