Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Getting a bit more up to date, I’ve just got the AutoBleem hack running on PlayStation Classic. It’s really simple and runs off a USB stick so no risk. Having a great time with Destruction Derby 2 - one of my all time favourite games - as well as Legacy of Kain, Parappa the Rapper and Nightmare Cre...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just started Yakuza Kiwami today and god, it feels good to be back in Kamurocho. The familiarity meant that I could get into the game straight away and I'm already at chapter 4! I think I am finally at a spot where I can truly roam around and get stuck into dating, arcade games, substories and all t...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Jan 31-Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair This game was close to having an accurate title. The impossible lair is one of the greatest challenges that I have come across in years. Even with all 48 bees I died time and time again. But unlike Furi which I tried last year, I could see myself improving...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Checked out a couple of PS4 demos lately. First one I tried was the Medievil remake. Never played the PS1 original but it was pretty alright. Nice Danny Elfmanesque soundtrack though. Also literally beat the demo boss with only one health left, which was pretty badass. Also tried out Fist of the Nor...

Re: 433: Rayman

I am a massive fan of both Origins and Legends but I had never got the chance to play Rayman’s original outing back in the day. When I came across a cheap PS1 copy, I snatched it up and popped it into my PS3. What catches your eye straight away is how gorgeous the game still looks to this day. The c...

Re: 417: Marvel's Spider-Man

While much has been said of the sublime movement of Spiderman in this game I would suggest that its other main strength is its top notch combat system, refining and building on from the solid system established by the Arkham games. Being all stealthy or going all out, webbing up bad guys was a true ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I also finished Spyro the Dragon on PS4. The final boss level stinks - piece of cake when you eventually catch him, but prolonged multi-stage high speed chases across narrow platforms, combined with dodgy PS1-era controls and shocking checkpointing, pretty much ruined what had been a really pleasan...

Jan 11th - Sonic CD Well this was completely average based on my experience but I know there's a decent game in there, somewhere. I felt the same way about it as well. The only way you know about the time travel mechanic is by reading the instruction manual otherwise you are given no explanation at...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I remember playing Rocket Knight Adventures ages ago at a mate's place and was blazing through it until I came across the robotic fish boss. That thing absolutely destroyed me and it was pretty damn annoying having to start over again! Would love to see this remade with a slightly more fairer diffi...

Re: All 92+ Commercially Released Consoles, Ranked

Interesting watch, really very little to disagree with, especially the no. 1 pick. Number of consoles sold, number of games and number of great games, the PS2 really had to be up there. Here would be my top 10 list: 1. Playstation 4 2. Playstation 2 3. SNES 4. N64 5. Wii 6. Gamecube 7. Playstation 8...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#3 Rocket Knight Adventures: This game is great, but a frustrating play. Without the Retron 5's cheat features (infinite lives in particular), this game is legit just not playable. I do not miss the arbitrary difficulty of these older games. That being said, if you have infinite lives and lean on t...

Re: 409: Yakuza 0

I had always heard good things about this series but good god I was not prepared for the sheer experience this turned out to be. The substories are truly something else. The situations I got myself into ranged from helping a wimpy rock band appear tough in a Q and A session with fans to helping a ma...

Re: 407: Super Mario RPG (: Legend of the Seven Stars)

I was always jealous of US SNES owners who got this and was a game I always wanted to check out. I had played the latter Mario RPG games and greatly enjoyed them but I wanted to go back to where it all began. Luckily, I did such a thing when Super Mario RPG was released on the Wii Virtual Console. I...

Jay, thanks for the involved and thoughtful reply. It is good to hear from the horse's mouth what was the reason for the approach this year. I am in no fear that you will be covering newer titles just for the clicks or anything like that, it was just a pattern I noticed when going through the list t...

My nephew was playing rust today chatting to his mates sounding like he was in the SAS or something "I've damaged him for 30, he's coming out the base, you get on the other side!" and my sister walks in "alright little man, we'll take you home and you can have one of your nice unicorn bubble baths ...

Re: The Cane and Rinse podcast Volume 9 (2020)

So I actually listened to the podcast revealing the lineup for Vol.9 but I am not the lording over type so felt now I can give my thoughts on this lineup. Btw, revealing the lineup by podcast is an excellent idea. Was like a kid on Christmas morning awaiting each title being announced. Definitely do...

Thanks for watching, mate! I genuinely didnt expect to like Sonic 1 as much as I did and that's probably why I felt like I enjoyed them more than 2 and 3. No problem at all, it is good to see someone go through this series as it really has a long and eventful history that one will appreciate in ful...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I might try it, if I manage to find a copy in my country and if the online component isn't too obligatory in the first place. And yeah, the Dragon Quest games are pretty chill experiences, I recommend them especially if one needs to take a break from either western RPGs or other JRPG IPs. If I reme...

Re: Your Games of the Decade

My list is very uneven. Some years I barely played anything and others there is too much to choose from. While I could do this year by year I do not think I would be very honest as there are certain games that are so freaking masterful that I cannot exclude them just to make room for one game in 201...
