I’m not mocking the game gear micro, I’m mocking the way the internet decided this was going to be huge news and it... isn’t.

At least not yet anyway.
Yeah, it's not huge news in any way, shape or form is it :lol:

Re: Videogame News

I mean yeah they look nice, but they could have actually made them playable. A 1.5 inch screen or whatever it is, is just a bit silly really. And the 4 games per console. It's classic Sega alright, but it's a shame they're just not a bit better. Every time Sega announce something I keep wondering i...

Anyone know of good places to buy PS Vita games? Other than eBay
CEX's online store has a lot of second hand Vita games in stock - https://uk.webuy.com/search?categoryIds=988

Re: Videogame News

Ah I see what you mean. I guess it's just because Xbox One games will work and be enhanced on Series X but PS4 games probably won't get the same for PS5? Like Microsoft whole thing is that the lines between the generations are really blurred, which personally I can't really get behind. I think its ...

Oh wow, I'd not heard of that before. Guess I got lucky with my copy.
Yeah we moan about modern consoles and game always hitting us with updates and patches, but at least game-breaking bugs are largely a thing of the past!

Re: Retro gaming

Yeah I saw your JogCon posts Suits - it's a beautiful thing! I was very tempted to pick one up, and may still do it if I really fall in love with RR4. One of the games I'm most excited about. I’d be more than happy to drop in a box and post it to you if you wanted to try it - like I said, it really...

Re: Retro gaming

Sony Europe had a policy where you couldn’t publish on the platform in Europe if you didn’t provide minimum French and German alongside the English IIRC. Something like that anyway. Very few Japanese developers had the resources to do anything other than (a usually quite weak) English translation, ...

Re: Retro gaming

If you're going back to PS1 games, Gregstrum, please give Silent Bomber a look. It was one of the greatest action games on the console. Woefully overlooked when it's come to re-releases or remasters. Not even available on PSN other than in Japan. It's really a fantastic game, almost like an early P...

Re: Retro gaming

2097 is a fantastic game. Make sure you check out Wipeout 3 SE at some point too. Best game in the series in my opinion, they never quite got the physics right in future entries. Ok, interesting! I'd not heard of the special edition actually. Have just done some reading and it sounds like something...

Nice, I just finished RR4 (NTSC-J like the one you have there) with the NAMCO JogCon controller and had a blast with it over a few nights. Great little adventure you’re on there dude 👍🏽.

Re: Retro gaming

Original PlayStation advise wanted! After tracking the project for years, and following much deliberation, I’ve pre-ordered a Polymega. Quick bit of context - for those unfamiliar, Polymega is basically a high-end, region-free, modular retro console that plays the original physical games of a varie...

Re: Comfort Gaming

I like to chuck on one of those retro games collections e.g Sega Genesis Collection. Same - the Mega Drive collection on Switch is great for some quick and easy fun. Sonic 2 and Streets of Rage 2 in particular. I'm finding Shenmue 3 wonderfully relaxing at the moment, with it's leisurely pace and r...

NBA 2K20 is now £2.49 on Switch!!

Just grabbed it, although I now need to find 34gb on my SD card >_<
Thought this must be an error, it's still up that price! Just grabbed it!

Supposed to be a very good port as well: http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/nin ... h/nba_2k20

Bargain!

Re: Retro gaming

I was thinking about my earliest arcade game memories and remembered how much I used to love Pole Position. They had a stand up cabinet in a pub in Aberdovey we used to go to when we were on holiday when I was tiny. I remember standing on a chair to steer and my dad doing the pedal for me. Anyway, ...

Re: The Shenmue trilogy

I've finally started playing Shenmue 3. Considering I'd been waiting for 18 years for this game and backed it on Kickstarter, I'm not quite sure why I couldn't bring myself to jump in straight away when my copy arrived. There was a kind of joyful relief when I finally held it in my hands that seemed...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

The Switch port tax has always been a bit ridiculous, but £45 for Burnout Paradise Remastered is a new low! I was looking forward to this but - pardon my language - fuck that! £17.99 when it launched on PC last year apparently, which seems far more reasonable for a spruce-up of a 12 year old game. E...
