Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Not had a lot of career overlap with the people at Fireproof. But I know one or two people there. (Of the studios in Guildford its probably Hello Games where I know the most)

You will never get any two people to agree on a ranking of the final fantasy games. Ever.

If I had to rank it, I never would’ve posted it cause I wouldn't be able to.

Re: Comic Book Chatter

I have a Usagi Yojimbo toy on my desk at work, he’s appeared in recent versions of the ninja turtles cartoon, so he got a toy in their line.

It was on the original western releases too, but they didn’t have the licence to keep it around for the dark arisen re-release.

Re: Comic Book Chatter

Started reading ‘Die’ today, there’s 7 issues out now (with the first five collected in trade, called ‘Fantasy Heartbreakers’). The set up is six teens got pulled into a D&D game, but only five got out, and couldn’t say why. Then 30 years later they find themselves back in there... and it’s not fun ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

It’s what make sure it super frustrating that there’s a bunch of Pal Megadrive games that are region locked.’ Have Thuderforce 4, and it’s amazing still, but it only runs (even on my Analogue Sg) in pal mode. (The pal release of Streets of Rage 2 is kinda odd, it won’t run if the console is set to U...

Re: Games Completed 2019

AC Unity is just... dull. I didn’t like the main character, and the engine being new also means that a lot of the fancier traversal stuff you’re used to from the previous games is gone. Getting around in the game felt like hard work. It just felt like it was... there. Nothing about it is memorable, ...

Re: Games Completed 2019

And because no one asked for it, my opinion of the AC games I’ve played from best to worst...

Odyssey, Brotherhood, Origins, Syndicate, 2, 4, 3, Revelations, Rogue, 1, Chronicles: China, Rebellion, Unity.

Re: Games Completed 2019

I can recommend trying AC Odyssey if you weren’t a fan of 4, Black flag, unity etc...

(Origins is the point where they massively changed the formula, but Odyssey is the better game I think, it plays more like the Witcher games, or even Skyrim, now compared to where it was before)

Probably going to watch a bit of it this weekend.

While we’re on the subject, there’s a pretty interesting whistlestop tour of Jim Henson’s career on youtube here: https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLp ... EQgoV9CpYm

With Tokyo Mirage Sessions it’s extremely welcome cause trying to find the WiiU version of that for anything approaching a sensible price now is basically impossible.

Re: The Witcher TV series

It was a long time ago when I read the shorts, so it's possible I missed that. Could also be the English translation loses it, or changes the emphasis or otherwise makes it less obvious. I’m not far into Lady of the Lake now and the framing device is kinda weird... I liked the experimental framing i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

A working Star Wars cab from 83? Those things are getting rarer and rarer as the parts to fix the vector displays when they die are thin in the ground. (And also a lot were changed into Empire Strikes Back ones with a conversion kit too)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Playing the Outcast remake at the moment. It’s ok, but I suspect people new to it won’t think it particularly revolutionary like we did back in 99. It loses some of its charm without the voxels, but there’s still a lot there to like. I’ve consumed a lot more media since I first played it though so I...

River City Girls looks like it’ll be fun for those who are sad that the Scott Pilgrim game was delisted.
