Re: Games Completed 2019

This looks interesting. I will add it to the CaR list. Also on iOS (£2.99).

Re: Shmups

Happily, Guwange is available as a cheap download on the Xbox marketplace - even in Europe and the US - and plays on both 360 and Xbox One.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yes, it's the same as the mobile/PC/PS4/Xbox One version that's widely available.

It has some good things about it but also some issues. Buyer beware, especially at the premium price point.

The internet - the world in fact - would be a better place if more people had your humility Alex, sincerely.

Re: Shmups

No, that’s not correct. Dimensions is based on the coin-ops. The PC Engine CD version is markedly different.

Re: Shmups

It’s fairly straightforward to buy stuff from Japan (or wherever) on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

There are numerous guides (written and video) for all services if you have a quick search online.

Re: Games Completed 2019

Yeah, no - that’s the bulk of the game then.

I’m surprised if you feel short-changed in that case, I’ve completed it on both Wii U and Switch and been surprised by the amount of content on each occasion, especially for a ‘mid-price’ title!

How many credit rolls have you seen? Because if it’s one you are nowhere near finished.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Appreciate the apology Magical. It’d be cool if you just had a read back and think how your stance might come across in future. I do want to stress that it’s not about rejecting or shutting down different opinions, but we do cultivate a culture of mutual respect here, with an emphasis on our own opi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

“Nintendo is finally making a game for adults!” is a tired argument that comes up time after time whenever they release a game that isn’t colourful and shiny. It happened in the GameCube era with things like Eternal Darkness. In the Wii era with Mad World. In the WIiU era with Bayonetta. In the Swi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Also also, I agree about the trend of ‘softening’ game design to include (or at least not intimidate) the broader audience, but it is certainly not only Nintendo which is ‘guilty’ of that, it’s an industry wide ‘malaise’, at least in AAA.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I agree, there is something in the idea that Nintendo’s output has become more ‘safe’ and focus-tested, although for my money things have improved considerably in this respect since the Wii era. I do miss the curios and darker atmospheric experiments of the past for sure. However that doesn’t make i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I agree with everything Eric says, the ‘nuclear whitebread’ was an absurd thing to say, and quite insulting to the millions of people who don’t subscribe to that demographic but who continue to embrace Nintendo’s output. People who think that others give Nintendo games an ‘easy ride’ because they’re...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Nintendo have often made games "for adults". From Animal crossing to, Xenoblade Chronicles to Zelda. May I introduce you to Metroid Prime, F-Zero GX, Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Breath of the Wild... Bit of a silly thing to say. I'm assuming you meant "mature themes" as I've enjoyed Nintendos libra...
