Re: SEGA AGES Virtua Racing

Bay Bridge - 3:15.03 Can't get beyond 2nd! The lead car is just right there in front of me the whole final lap, and then the last few turns he just seems that bit quicker than me. I've tried so many times at this point that I'm starting to go a little bit loopy :shock: Same here! 10 hours I've play...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I was genuinely thrilled by five minutes near the end, but the rest was just alright. I’m not sure I’d recommend it to anyone unless it was free with PS+ or similar (or a birthday present like my copy.). Speaking of PS+, CoD WW2 has been a proper thrill ride! A...

Mana Spark was given away free at Christmas so hopefully a lot of people can get these too!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Final Fantasy (SNES) - Ooofff, just got out of the rapids and decided to follow Sabin and I've just paused as I'm half way through the Ghost Train. Very good. Just waiting on my PC Engine to come back from servicing and I'm going to be all over that. I need to go back to that. I’ve started it on th...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PS4 says I’m at 37% completion, which I guess is 7-8 hours so far, and I’m still not sure how much I like it. Certainly more than I did for the first couple of hours, when, if I hadn’t been given it for my birthday last week, I’m not sure I’d have carried on. Now I’ve...

Re: Comfort Gaming

I’m struggling to not play Animal Crossing at the moment, but for proper comfort gaming I head back to my Spectrum+2 for Feud, Renegade and Shaolin’s Road, or maybe Destruction Derby 2 on PS1.

Re: Your Favourite Game! (per console)

Lists are my favourite! Mine is based mostly on what I owned but also what I played just as much of at the time - brother’s / best mate’s / son’s / etc. Roughly in the order owned. And exclusives where it works or where they even existed... Interstate 1160 - Hockey / Football (genuinely what it was ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After spending a lot of time recently on Road Rash 2 on Mega Drive Mini, I decided to spend an afternoon on some PlayStation (Classic) variants. Ropey FMV and licensed music don’t stop the original being a stinker on PS1; the controls are stodgy and whilst it moves at pace, the graphics haven’t aged...

Stuff... Steeeeeeeeeve!! How's G-LOC? I want to get it but haven't heard anyone's opinions yet. Seems to have got OK reviews. Stuff! G-LOC came out on the wrong day unfortunately, and is struggling to get much of a look in. I’ve been playing most nights last thing before bed, which isn’t ideal beca...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Streets of Rage 4’s story mode on normal difficulty with a mix of solo and online co-op, then went back to do some sightseeing on easy to find the four retro levels, and just take in some of the fantastic artwork and attention to detail. Now I’m back on normal, going stage by stage to get t...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (16.5.20) - 419: Detroit: Become Human

I hated this game! The first chapter, with its future-CSI vibes, was fantastic, but then I started collecting packages and cleaning houses and taking old men to the toilet. I lasted until chapter 8, which is a record for me and David Cage games, but I don’t want any of those things from my gaming.

Thoroughly recommend Lonely Mountains: Downhill on Switch if it looks vaguely interesting to you at all (and you don’t have access to Game Pass).

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Really enjoying Streets of Rage 4 on Switch. Completely faithful to the series from what I can tell but also completely modern feeling and looking, and a fantastic beat ‘em up in its own right. I got to the end of stage 4 in normal mode solo (after tearing my hair out with the stage 2 boss almost al...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I remembered I’d started and, it turns out, nearly finished Game Boy Kid Dracula over Christmas. Not sure how I forgot about it, but just a level later the rather simple final boss was dust. It’s good, but there’s no way I’d have forgotten I was playing the NES variant on the Castlevania Collection!...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

The Computer Game Show guys were discussing that on this week’s show. Be nice to think karma is real when it comes to scum like this. I just read the May PS+ lineup. I’ve had incredible value out of that service over the years, but I reckon this will be the first month I’ve never at least downloaded...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Doom 2 on Switch. Can safely say £1.29 well spent, but having played 3, 1, 64 then this on the bounce, I think I’m done with Doom for a while. A lot more time spent on Road Rash 2 and Super Fantasy Zone on Megadrive Classic, as well as Fantasy Zone 2 on 3DS - still think that’s the pinnacle...
