Re: Apex Legends

This is getting some great write ups and really positive first impressions, certainly from what I've seen. I've watch a bit on Twitch today it's definitely got me interested! Think this will be the battle royale game to finally get me to take the plunge! Only downside will be that this will likely k...

Re: Videogame News

So this is potentially huge news - Xbox Live being integrated into Switch! https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-02-04-microsoft-plans-xbox-live-for-nintendo-switch-mobile Not only a big thing in and of itself, but this is a big insight into the kinds of collaborative conversations going on betwee...

Re: Videogame Deals

Well now I feel bad... I'd share the love but it was specifically a one-time use code, so now that I've cashed it in I can't hand it round. I did just try just in case it was glitched (which is not impossible with good old janky PSN!) but just got a "This discount code has already been redeemed" mes...

Re: Anthem

Welcome to the lonely hearts club. These kind of games hit or miss for people. It felt like i was the only one into sea of thieves and despite it being a Rare game, people said it didnt feel like one. Sea of Thieves launched pretty bare bones, but within like 4-6 months, it was a substantially bett...

Of course Super Aleste was known (in typical fashion) as (lol) SPACE MEGAFORCE in the US.

Re: Videogame News

The Aleste game on MD was widely known as ‘MUSHA’ - any help? So the box art to MUSHA rings the quietest of bells, most likely from seeing it back in the day in one of the local independent game stores that used to get in import Mega Drive stuff. Looking at screenshots though i wouldn’t be able to ...

Re: Videogame News

Yeah see I never got round to the Cave episode! Shmups aren’t really my thing, mainly because I’m a bit rubbish at most of them with the odd rare exception. Combine that with the fact that I was a Sega kid who never owned a SNES (as were most of my mates), and can see why my knowledge of niche SNES ...

Re: Videogame News

In news that is a month old : the announcement of Esp.Ra.De as the next M2 Shot Triggers game was disclosed last year, however... 1. 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 Bo...

Re: Anthem

For me it’s not about writing off BioWare after ME:A, it’s that there seems to have been a distinct downward trajectory, starting with DAII, ME3, DA:I and continuing through as most of the studio’s key creative talent has upped sticks. The BioWare that’s making Anthem is an EA studio, and bears no ...

Re: Videogame Deals

No sadly not. Since letting my PS+ lapse for the first time in 5 years I have received various 25% off PS+ emails though. Yeah mine is lapsed at the moment (has been for 6-9 months I think) as I simply don't play online on PS4 (all my online buddies are Xbox based). Maybe I made it onto some list o...

Re: Anthem

I'm going to buck the trend a bit by saying I'm looking forward to Anthem and will probably pick it up at release to play with my regular co-op buddy if reviews are decent. It looks beautiful and there's been a lot of positive feedback around the actual gameplay loop and how it feels to play. I've a...

Re: Videogame Deals

So I've had a one-time unique code through on email for the Playstation store that got me 40% off all games (excluding pre-orders). So I could buy Resident Evil 2 for under £27 for example - not bad! I've not done that because I didn't want to spend that on any one game given I probably won't get to...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I'm listening to the recent 20th anniversary rearrangement of the wonderful Panzer Dragoon Saga soundtrack while at work and I'd forgotten the lovely little section in the track Village Of Zoah that is incredibly reminiscent of the Back To The Future score. That sounds like a complete mismatch and e...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Having never played Shenmue, I feel like Shenmue is rendered obsolete by the existence of the Yakuza series. Same off-kilter goofery, none of the jank. I’ve played both and although they have their similarities I think they are quite different in tone, narrative and to an extent even gameplay. I wo...

Re: Gaming Goals for 2019

Sinclair - Have a look at my backlog guide posted a couple days back. If you're not enjoying a game, there's no shame in bouncing on it. Like, no hyperbole, I consider Breath of the Wild to be one of the absolute worst games I've ever played. It's "a classic", but it's something I personally find a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

In anticipation of Shenmue 3 (still can't believe it's actually happening :D), I've finally got round to kicking off a Shenmue 1 play-through. Playing the recent HD version on PS4 and it's the first time I've played the game since my original Dreamcast play-through at release. That game only had the...

Re: Gaming Goals for 2019

I've been in a slump with gaming for a good while with only a dozen or so completions last year. A dozen or so completions ain't bad for a slump mate! I did 15 last year and was pretty pleased with myself! Seriously though, if you're not enjoying it then why not take a break and wait for something ...

Jan – Streets of Rage 2 - Sega Mega Drive Classics (Switch) Jan - Detroit: Become Human - (PS4 Pro) My interest in this game really started long before the game itself had even been announced.
