Re: Game that defines the console?

Love this topic! This is me shooting from the hip with honest answers - no procrastination. If a console isn't there it's because nothing came to mind instantly.... C64 - California Games NES - Super Mario Bros. 3 Master System - Alex The Kidd In Miracle World Game Boy - Tetris Game Gear – Sonic Th...

Re: Game that defines the console?

Nintendo 64: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (easily)
For me it's Mario 64, no question.

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This may be the only game I've ever played where I can put in a two hour session of doing nothing at all of note, and go to bed satisfied. Last night all I did was cook loads of meals, catch myself a new horse, climb a mountain and discovered its possible to sail the little rafts about if you have ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Knowing Nintendo, that probably means they'll start to expand to Game Boy titles as well as NES :lol:

Re: Downloads vs Streaming

Almost every podcast I listen to has advertising now. I tend to skip them or switch off mentally during them, but I guess they work because advertisers continue to book them. We’re only going to take advertising if we can find a solution that both Jay and I are comfortable with. It wouldn’t be a ma...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I think the fact that I have little to no interest in at least 3 major upcoming first party titles (Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem) yet there is still plenty of stuff to be excited about (Doom Eternal, Mario Maker 2, Dragon Quest XI, Witcher III, Luigi's Mansion, Link's Awakening, plus many i...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yeah - I was on the fence about Necrodancer, but for $3.99 (down from $20) it's well worth a punt!

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Needless to say, but the prospect of a BotW sequel is really intriguing.

I said as much on the podcast thread, but to me BotW was a great experience but felt at times a bit like a proof of concept in need of tightening up.

No doubt Nintendo have a lot of ideas to implement.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Anyone else think that the FF7 character designs lose every single ounce of charm and instead actually look really silly when they’re rendered in the quasi realistic style of the remake? Yep, 100% agreed. I played and finished FF7 for the first time last year and I thought its chunky visual style g...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Not mindblowing (was hoping for some possible info re: Xbox Live connectivity) but pretty good overall.

Panzer Dragoon looked a bit janky though, I thought, and the sizzle reel at the end left me almost entirely cold.

Great news about Witcher 3, hope it's a good port.

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Fair enough, each to their own. For me it's the same reason I could never get on with any of the Telltale games. For me they were like playing an old point and click game with all the puzzles (ie the actual meat of the game) taken out.

Re: All Things Jurassic Park

Speaking of Jurassic Park who here isn''t still waiting for a good Jurassic Park Game? I have a lot of fondness for the SNES Jurassic Park game. It's one drawback was that it didn't have a save feature, meaning you had to complete the entire thing in one sitting (or leave your SNES on overnight, wh...

Re: All Things Jurassic Park

Speaking of Malcolm, on my last rewatch over Christmas... Not to negate your whole post, but I did my rewatch of the series last Christmas too! There WAS magic in the air! We watched it with my wife's 13 year old niece - she was a bit scared but loved it. 'Sam Niell reluctantly looks after kids' do...

Virtua Racing presumably coming to the EU store soon I'd guess, too. But yeah, I know what you mean, a modern driving game with '...

Re: All Things Jurassic Park

Speaking of Malcolm, on my last rewatch over Christmas I really picked up on the dynamic between Malcolm and Grant, something i'd never really noticed before. I'd always assumed that when Malcolm tries the flare trick with the T Rex he's just showing off, but it's actually really well set up on a ch...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I'm crossing my fingers for some proper third party support for Switch, even if its just some more ports of older titles. I was hoping that last years E3 was when we'd get lots of announcements from third party publishers, but they didn't really materialise in any great volume. I can't fault Nintend...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

One I just thought of that would make a really fascinating episode is Night in the Woods. I absolutely loved this when i played it last year and thought its characters were ironically the most human that I have ever encountered in a videogame. Not to mention, the political themes it deals with are ...
