Re: Videogame News

I mean, when I was that age, if you asked a bunch of 16 year olds in my area who has tried alcohol you’d have 80% of people saying they had and 20% people lying.

Re: Videogame News

There aren't many games I can think of with cigarettes featured (only really Metal Gear Solid (which also shows negative effects) and Vanquish) but I guess if you want video games to be taken as seriously as TV, you unfortunately end up adhering to similar standards. From the 90s onward, cigarettes ...

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I think playing it in the regular way, horses are more of a pain than they’re worth. But if you make a conscious decision to not fast travel, some of the systems in the game really start to come out more. Cooking for example becomes a bit trivial once you find a really good fruit, and then a shrine ...

If you reverse and speed up the music in the trailer it’s the Goron mines from Twilight Princess!

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

We didn’t even know about Mario Maker 2 until February, and that’s out at the end of this month. I could see it going either way - Nintendo likes to keep info close to its chest (likely to make you focus on things to buy right now), but could see the release date quietly slipping.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Once information is out there, it’s out there so if you’re a news company I can understand you either report on it or are just late. But framing things like this - What a disaster for Bandai Namco. Chances are high we’ll see all three of these games during Microsoft’s press conference on Sunday afte...

NoJ put this video up which confirms building while in docked mode. (They’re a series of videos of various games with Arino from GameCenter CX and his comedy partner.)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Box Boy & Box Girl - I’ve literally just started this and flew through the first few worlds as I’m familiar with the gameplay having spent a wonderful time with the 3DS version. My wife has threated to join in with me on the Co-Op adventure but I’m hesitant with this as I’ve heard there is a fundam...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Been watching through the latest live action series of The Tick and it’s pretty good. I only have vague memories of the cartoon show back in the day, but I like the tone this one sets. Mostly. Sometimes it doesn’t quite know what it wants to be and has a tonal shift to the serious, which I think it ...

Box Boy + Box Girl Demo is now live in the UK store. For those that are on the fence, or aren’t familiar with the game, I encourage you to give it a go. A very rewarding puzzle platformer 😎. It’s such a chill game, I love it! Make sure you play both sets of levels. The initial menu makes it sound l...

Re: Retro gaming

You can get emulators on almost anything nowadays and even the most zealous anti pc gamers all bought raspberry pi's and followed the foolproof retropie setup when they were fashionable. Most people just buy their console and games for it. Raspberry Pi’s are popular on the internet, but to the aver...

Re: Retro gaming

A lot of folk don’t want to sit at a PC to play games. They have an Xbox. If they can play a bunch of neat old games cheaply and easily, even if it’s just to give a quick nostalgia fix, this service let’s them do that. I think you’re way overthinking who this appeals to.

Re: Comic Book Chatter

Blimey. Managed to finish all 6 volumes of Akira and that was a journey and a half. Stunning stuff. The first 3 volumes follow a lot of the themes and setting of the movie but with a lot of differences in the story beats. The latter 3 volumes though - it works almost as a sequel to the film. What ha...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Capcom games put their Switch games on sale every other month, so it’s a good bet to just hang tight and wait.
