Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Aw thanks mate. It's actually a good time to hear that - been a strange time. Yeah a lot going on really but I'm here and healthy and pressing on! I trust all's well your way? I hope not too full on for you, I know you've got the family responsibilities keeping you busy. Glad to hear you're healthy...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

Really enjoyed reading your review. Hopefully it’s not another 10 years till the next one as I believe, my friend , that you have a gift. Oh, mate, that is too kind, but I appreciate it! I've missed an outlet beyond work and leisure over the last few years and I figure it'll get me playing differen...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

Cheers, Michiel. I never played it but I'll bow to your knowledge on that one! Good little game potentially but needs some tweaking.

And looking forward to the next VW! That's right in the pocket for me, fond memories.

I've not done much writing in earnest for about ten years but, err, here's a review I did for Mental Health Gaming, with more to come:

Re: Shameless Self Promotion

It's a great show, incredibly comforting and gently funny, always full of moments where I feel like I've learned something new about my own youth which is a lovely feeling.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Ghibli is life man! One of the movies that I haven't seen yet is Porco Rosso! Ghibli really are masters of their craft. My favorite has to be either Howl's Moving Castle or Kiki's Delivery Service. Grave of the Fireflies is also great (albeit a total gut punch). I absolutely love all of them but yo...

Re: Super Mario Maker series - Cane and Rinse 426

Good work on this one. I definitely agree that the first game felt more interesting and subversive from what I played of it (not enough, in hindsight). I wish they'd included more of the goofier unpredictable elements, or released the more interesting SMM2 updates much sooner. Quality hosting job, MK!

Re: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Cheers mate. It's made me realise how much of my lockdown time I've spent gaming. I don't know what else to do with myself! :twisted: Anyway, fingers crossed for next week. Have a great night!

Re: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Morning gents, I've had a quick go on this today and my elbow is feeling pretty sore again, I've got RSI. It's killed the fun of gaming a bit recently so I'm sorry but I'm going to have to bail this evening. I one hundred percent blame this on playing Futari for several days straight recently. I wil...

Re: Shmups

That was frickin' great, man. I never really messed with God Mode, so the scoring system is very much like 1.5 Maniac? Cheers, mate. I'd say it's well worth a try, easily my favourite mode in the game and I think the most spectacular (even if I'm a bit biased!). It does work similarly to 1.5 Maniac...

Re: Shmups

Extreme respect to anyone who can play bullet hell even remotely competently, I was watching the footage and it looks insane. Thanks, man. Very kind. You do get into a kind of flow with it after a while where you're not distracted by all the noise. When you have a route down, there are usually only...

This is a great show, I learned a lot! I thought Dan was on particularly good form on this one. Great work all round, though.

Re: Shmups

I'm trying to make the switch back to stick after a good few years away, and quickly realising that I've got a very loose, very "neutral" grip that is entirely designed around Fighting Games. Great for complex inputs and large, smooth gestures, utterly useless for the kind of directness and precisi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Thanks for the response, it was interesting to read. It's good to hear from a real gamer what he (or she) liked so much about it. I do think the cooperative experience (possibly with someone familiar with it) would have helped a lot. I wanted to like the game, I tried but just couldn't. I might go ...

In fact, it deliberately frustrates you at various points in ord...

Re: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

That sounds like fun! Best times I had with the game were in the C&R lobby and I've dipped back in recently to try out my stick. I'm supposed to be out this Tuesday but I'd be up for the one after.
