Re: The Street Fighter thread

I just didn't enjoy the game. I had a blast with some of the guys on here one evening, best time I had with it, but generally, I found SFV very disappointing. My SF4 style doesn't fit at all, and I've never enjoyed it enough to want to start from scratch. That's the honest truth. Same. My least fav...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Virtua Fighter 2 is OK How very dare you sir! VF2 is great, and a game I jump into pretty regularly. To be fair if you're coming to it fresh in 2019 it might be a bit different without the benefit of nostalgia goggles ;) I think Virtual On is well cool! Takes a bit of learning though, and is better...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It's hot, damn hot, and I've taken the week off. I've been playing with the PS Classic and I'm having a great time with it recapturing my mid-teens. I've been mostly playing: Tomb Raider . What a fantastic game this is. I went back to the updated version(s) intermittently over the years and they se...

Re: Retro gaming

For the first time in a long time I did a stock-take of my Saturn and Dreamcast collections the other day. Because they’re not all out on a shelf somewhere and the fact that both collections are relatively big at this point, I do lose track of what I have at times. So for anyone interested in either...

Finally chipped mine down to 50 and included everything new since my 2013 list, along with a bit of general spring cleaning of dropping and including some older stuff. All alphabetical, no ranking! Although if you asked me for a favourite it would still be Panzer Dragoon Saga... Click to reveal! Ala...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Looking back at mine there are a few suspect choices, and I also blatantly cheated by including Sonic Jam and The Orange Box as single listings! I've written up a list of what I want add in since 2013 and have trimmed the overall list to 57, but can't get rid of those final 7! Will keep deliberating...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Divs 2 is still my go to game, I just love it. Me too! Division 2 is so very well done. It looks beautiful and the level of detail in the world is incredible (playing on One X). The gameplay and systems are easy to pick up and hard to master. There's also so much content and so many things to see a...

Re: All things Telltale

The GoT one has you play multiple characters in order to make it feel more like an episode of the show, cutting between plot threads. That aspect works, but some of the characters stories are better than others, it felt a bit too variable. Fantastic cold open for the first episode though. Did GoT h...

A port of 3D World would be ace.
Would love a 3D World port. I really enjoyed 3D Land on 3DS and never got to play World, and there must be literally millions more like me.

Surprised they’ve not done it already!

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Switched myself to Gamepass Ultimate last night. I've just done this too, and for those with a bunch of prepaid months on Gold and Game Pass this is a REALLY good deal. For every month of Gold you have, you get a one month of Ultimate, and for every month of Game Pass, you also get a month of Ultim...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I thought the MS conference was fantastic, but was left feeling confused as to what the next Xbox is. My take-away from the bit about Scarlett is that despite all the hullabaloo around streaming, they're still building a super-powerful hardware-based traditional console. They didn't say anything di...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Really mixed feelings on the Xbox briefing. It feels harsh to be too critical as it was jam packed with games of all shapes and sizes, many of which looked fantastic. Plus if you’re a Game Pass subscriber like me the number of times “launching on Game Pass” popped up next to a cool looking game, you...

Re: What classic games or series are still to be looked at by C&R that you hope get covered in the future?

Welcome to forum Luke! For me it would have to be the Panzer Dragoon series. I'd break it down as a single show for the first game and Zwei on Saturn, a separate all of it's own for Saga, and then I think Orta deserves it's a solo show as well. I'll let the team off Panzer Dragoon R-Zone on the Tige...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I spent about 5 hours by myself on trains over the weekend, and a lot of that time I was playing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Very much enjoying it so far! It starts off as 'baby's first turn-based strategy RPG' and was a bit slow to get going for someone pretty well-versed in the genre. That sai...
