...All in all, a good laugh and it doesn't play half bad. Plus it has some decent music as well. A nice little piece for the collection.

I kinda want this game now! The movie is a great good-bad movie, and I love weird, bonkers games.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

In the absence of a PC at home now, and no real interest in getting one, I did some research and picked up a 4K Amazon Fire Stick to run some emulation, and it's very very good. I've basically just been playing shmups in FB Alpha via Retroarch. How did I never give Progear enough time before? What ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I took the dive and picked up an original Splatterhouse PCB! Being born 1980 means the first time I saw this game in the arcade I would have been 7-8 years old, and boy, did it leave a long-lasting impression. I think I was both too intimidated to play it at that age, plus it was one of the more exp...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Devil Engine is another to look out for, very fast paced and chaotic horizontal shmup which gives me some Thunder Force vibes. Switch launch trailer below: KvhJ9QnGEmw Coming to Switch and PC on the 21st Feb. Hmmm... attention caught! There are influences, but it seems to be doing it's own thing wi...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Did not watch the Nintendo Direct - never do because I'm old and I want to go to bed, and it's the internet, I'll just wait.

Good to see Link's Awakening getting some modern love! It looks very... let's say "Nintendo"? That is, very bright and colourful, and appealing.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I think I have an Ace Combat game on my shelf, for the PS2... I think it's the 5th game... it's been a while since I've played it... can't remember the story... From memory it's a perfectly fine game, clearly not one that stirs a fiery passion in me. I used to collect magazines about planes when I w...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I've been watching a whole lot of stupid lately, and I'm cut it down to one post: The Good - XXX: Return of Xander Cage : This is how you do dumb right. For all of it's 1 hour and 47 minute run time it never slows down and it's never boring. Sure, it's incredibly stupid, but I was never bored. If yo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Over the last couple of weeks, besides Yakuza 4 (I swear I'm going to get make to the main storyline... just after some karaoke/darts/bowling/drinking/brawling/eating/batting), I have also been playing Muv Luv on the Vita. Due to the nature of visual novels, reading game reviews can be a bit tricky,...

Re: Retro gaming

Well, if you ever get that inheritance from that one night you stayed in a spooky haunted house, you could spend it on the real thing The upside: it's the real thing, in pretty great condition, and it's a seller I've been using for years. The downside: £1,045.60 is a lot of money... you'd have to sp...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Still haven’t progressed much with Yakuza 4, story-wise, due to darts, gambling, batting cages, table tennis, drinking, fighting, more darts, more drinking, bowling, locker keys, fighting... great being back in Kamurocho!

Re: Retro gaming

Slightly related, I also took the risk of buying an SMS controller on eBay (had some bad luck in the past with controller purchases) and that turned up in the post yesterday, as well. I needed it to play Wonder Boy in Monster Land as it's one of the few Master System games that doesn't work with MD...

Re: Retro gaming

Over the years of buying a lot of vintage games, I've got my small circle of reliable sellers that I can confidently go back to again and again. My DS copy of Professor Layton and Pandora's Box, which I got through eBay many years ago, is certainly counterfeit, so no one is immune to it. It sucks, a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been enjoying my time with Dragon Quest Builders but i feel I'd enjoy it more in multiplayer whenever the sequel arrives this year. Gonna put a stop on it before i lose myself to it and send it back to where it came from. It's a very good game though. Minecraft never quite got it's hooks into ...

Also, that's a long list of releases - until you realize about half of them are absolutely pointless to the central story.
Wait... there's a story?1?

Re: Spoilers topic

I was worried about reading this thread, lest there be spoilers within! There are plenty of episodes of Cane and Rinse I haven't listened too precisely because I don't want certain titles ruined for me. But then I can go back to those episodes afterwards anyway, and see if I connect with other peopl...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Bohemian Rhapsody does not appeal to me at all, and not just because of the whole Byran Singer connection... ugh. There are a few decent Queen documentaries floating around out there, and I think the one I saw a while ago was Queen: Days of Our Lives... but I could be wrong... One movie I did watch ...

Re: Videogame News

Yeah, rarities and oddities going for obscene prices very much limits the audience, and unfortunately is the norm. I guess that's why I'm quite excited about what M2 are doing, shining a bit of light on some forgotten and genuinely great games... assuming you get on with that genre! If you were to g...

There is also the possibility of Shot Trigger titles on the Switch, which is a great fit for those sort of titles 2. The possibility of The Great Ragtime Show (aka Boo...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

The Lego Batman Movie - This was the best movie starring Batman since The Dark Knight , which is kind of depressing when you think about it. I also had a blast with this movie! Dare I say that Will Arnett is fast becoming my favourite actor to portray Bruce Wayne/Batman. But then, I do have a soft ...
