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...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Personally I’m looking forward to all of the conferences and I don’t quite understand the big downer on the show this year to be honest. Lots of ambitious publishers and talented developers will still be showing their wares as usual. Add to that the fact late gen is often when we get some of the bes...

Also Team Sonic Racing is hovering just over £26 on a few game seller websites.
Yeah it’s £29.99 on Amazon and less a lot of places, which seems a bit of a bargain to me...

Re: If you could only pick one console...

Vita is not a bad shout. My head says Xbox One X - massive library across multiple generations including nearly 2,000 games on Xbox One itself and nearly 600 backwards compatible titles. My heart says my beloved multi-region Saturn though. It's the console I'd miss the most if it wasn't around and t...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I've had Game Pass since September and never paid full price. I’m currently working through a deal where I got 12 months for £43.99, so that’s £3.66 a month. As you say, there are deals from Microsoft themselves or the likes of Amazon popping up all over the place all the time, so really you should...

Not helping! :lol: To be super unhelpful, the X is a brilliant machine and if you've got the funds burning whole in your pocket then it's definitely worth the price of entry if optimal performance is something you care about (on console obviously, before PC folk jump in!). There are hundreds of gam...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Well, I've done mine, it took a couple of hours but only because I had a couple of hiccups where the guide wasn't quite right. Worked it out in the end though! Nice, handheld Megadrive and SNES again, woohoo! It's fairly straightforward, if you can follow guides it's not too much hassle, although i...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I’m not sure if I missed something but Fallout 76 aside I think Bethesda have been relatively consistent. Although aggregate scores aren’t stellar some of the Rage 2 reviews have been individually favourable like the IGN review. I wouldnt write them off just yet. Fallout 4 was also garbage, unless ...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Underwhelmed to be honest. Have no love for Medievil - not saying it's bad but have simply never played a Medievil game. Was the same with the Crash and Spyro do-overs. FF7 looks weird. I don't have much more to say on it than that! Riverbond was really the only thing that peaked my interest. Love t...
