Re: Games Completed 2019

It’s kind of unthinkable now that a console release would be a year later in Europe compared to the US isn’t it?

Re: Games Completed 2019

Super Mario 3 came out in Europe a week *after* Super Mario World launched in the US.

The dark days of late EU releases at their most stark.

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

From a preservation point of view, I’m not even sure you could get the earlier ones even if you wanted to.

Lot of spin off games as well for Angry Birds.

Re: Anyone a fan of emulation here?

If you really want to read something odd from the time, this was rescued and put back into print again recently: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/22/invasion-of-the-space-invaders-martin-amis-review Yes. *That* Martin Amis.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve never really left it, been playing it a few hours a week since launch really. If you haven’t played it since Horizons launched it’ll be barely recognisable to you, so many things have been added and changed. The most recent was an overhaul of how the exploration systems work to make it a little...

Re: Anyone a fan of emulation here?

I have a book called ‘Game After’ which is all about game preservation, and it takes the angle that emulation alone isn’t enough. A large part of the cultural artefact that is an old video game is the platform you play it on, and for things like arcade games, the places the machines lived. Playing P...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I only really post in this thread when I’m doing something new. Most of the past month I’ve just been slowly working my way through a bunch of gamepass games, the story modes in Soul Calibur 6, and playing a bunch of Elite Dangerous and Overwatch. I have gone back to playing Neverwinter this week, t...

With Streets of Rage 4 and River City Girls it looks like being a fun time for fans of the belt scroller.

Re: Comic Book Chatter

The recent Bond stuff has an interesting backstory, the short form of which is that they’re intended to be ‘Bond from the books, not Bond from the movies’, which is why it’s grimmer. Warren Ellis did the first two arcs, then others took over. There’s a fun one shot by Kieron Gillen that’s pretty goo...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Seems it’s mostly updates for me this week. Stellaris on console gets the Utopia add on today as it slowly inches it’s way towards parity with the pc build. Nightwolf joins Mk11 for kombat pass players. And best of all, Role Queue finally comes to Overwatch ranked games (in beta form anyway). No mor...

Re: Retro gaming

So the PC Engine Mini that’s coming out early next year looks like it might be essential, if they don’t stuff the emulation.

The games list is *epic*.

Re: iOS and Android gaming

There’s hundreds of those now. The only one I can remember the name of off the top of my head is Piffle, but it probably wasn’t that.

Re: The Street Fighter thread

There’s a trailer out now for Nightwolf in Mk11 as well, he’s pretty much a completely new build, doesn’t look much like how he played in earlier games.

He seems to be able to use spirit animal powers and so I found myself humming the theme to Bravestarr as i watched it.

Re: The Street Fighter thread

I still enjoying watching SFV played at a high level, but I don’t really play it much myself anymore, probably won’t be getting these characters as I just won’t play them. I’m mostly on Mortal Kombat 11 now, although I did enjoy the Granblue Fantasy Versus beta, so might get that when it comes out. ...

Re: The Street Fighter thread

Thread resurrection!

Capcom have apparently remembered that SFV exists... surprised this dropped now rather than at EVO on Sunday, maybe they’re sulking cause they’re not the final game anymore.

Anyway... more characters...
