Re: Shmups

I looked for the DDP DFK t-shirt that bearded beast was wearing on the Cave TGS stream and it's an official and very out of stock product from the old Cave Japanese online store. I got this sleek Dodonpachi number instead to wear down Arcade Club to impress the [s]ladies[/s] [s]cool[/s] uncool dads....

Re: Daemon X Machina

Not at all, I totally get it. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on the Switch is one of the best games I've ever played, a tour de force of singular design commitment. It says 'this is is Monster Hunter, take it or leave it'. Every so often, probably every three months, I'll have a couple of hours...

Re: Daemon X Machina

Checked my playtime. Twelve hours. Went out Friday night...Busy yesterday...Watched cricket today...How did...This game has quite the alluring feedback loop.

Re: Shmups

I'm gutted that of all the games they could have chosen to port, they went with...Deathsmiles 2. Not inherently total shit but the fact that they doubled down on the moe crap and also made the ugliest Cave game ever slightly smarts. That mobile game they showed was total shit as well. I will buy all...

Daemon X Machina

Having played for five or six hours now, it's fundamentally a Monster Hunter game with mechs and it's damn good fun at its best. When you're in a little online team of four against this colossal writhing mechanical eel or massive hulking robot with a great sword or caterpillar tank spraying homing m...

Re: Need for Speed: Heat and the Conversation Around Racing Games

You can do that in Forza Horizon 4, kind of. I got my own car and then tooled it up and drove off a bridge and the like. Great fun.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Daemon X Machina is about two thirds of a really good game. The core gameplay of zipping around and unloading on big robots with your bazooka and assault rifle and sword is great fun, spectacular stuff. The story and characters and voice acting (and constant, loathsome banter commentary during miss...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've put seventy hours into Fire Emblem: Three Houses and it's probably second only to Sekiro in my list of 2019 games. Just finished my Blue Lions playthrough. Story and characters are far more involving than I expected, and although there's probably too much (optional) narrative and character deve...

Re: DoDonPachi Resurrection September Tournament

I'm back in town but back to zero with this. I had a couple of runs of DOJ and chained stage one on my second go. Felt flipping great. Still locked in. Had a few runs of DFK and it's just not stuck with me at all. Good game but I possibly screwed myself playing so much DOJ immediately before it. It'...

Re: Shmups

I do really like DDPR but I wouldn't defend it to the death. This has been the longest I've gone without playing any shmup for about a year or something. It's been really...nice...to play some stuff that doesn't make me feel stressed or full of self-loathing in the pursuit of flickering hopes of cat...

Re: Association Football (aka 'Soccer' / "The Beautiful Game")

Bad luck mate, my own 'career' ended in a similar fashion but I never bothered getting the scan done or any operation so my knees are basically papier mache. Five-a-side and squash have a lot to answer for.

Re: What's Out This Week?

New DxM demo seems well better than the last one. Performance is snappy, looks better, good stuff. Lord knows how I'll fit it in so will prob save it for a couple of months. Still loving Fire Emblem and starting to open up Astral Chain which is fantastic so far. One of the genuine perks of working a...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Don't get me wrong, I'm not necessarily against ports in general. But it seems to me like the Switch is gaining an awful lot of traction despite the surprisingly low amount of exclusive system sellers in is library. It has a stronger list of system exclusives than XB1 & PS4 combined, in my opinion....

Great work, you two champs. I'm away for a few days now so won't get back to this til the weekend but interesting contrasts to my own approach here. Mark's latest podcast covers a lot of the recent ground and topics from this thread, by an astounding coincidence. For the record, he's more of a clipp...
