Re: Games Completed 2020

I couldn't enjoy Sonic 4 because those physics felt so off, I didn't even play the 2nd part. Anyway Jan 1 - Wonder Boy in Monster World (Sega Mega Drive Mini) Jan 5 – FTL: Faster Than Light (PC) (Easy) Jan 21 – God of War (PS4) Feb 6 – Into The Breach (Switch) (Normal) Feb 10 – Wargroove: Double Tro...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Jan 1 - Wonder Boy in Monster World (Sega Mega Drive Mini) A bit of catching up to do here Jan 5 – FTL: Faster Than Light (PC) (Easy) Was meant to play something else but I was too tempted to play this again. Finished two playthroughs, its still great. Jan 21 – God of War (PS4) I had only played th...

Re: 409: Yakuza 0

Ew that's ... unfortunate. I think the first time that guy appears on screen is in a Majima cutscene. I just burst out laughing, I love how ridiculous the games can be sometimes. As for the game engine, if I recall correctly 3 and 4 (on the PS3) used the same engine but then they built a new one for...

Re: 409: Yakuza 0

While many started the series with Yakuza 0, it was my 4th entry in the series. The previous game, Yakuza 5, was my personal high point in the series. I was worried that the reduction in locations to 2, both returning from the 5th game, and the reduction in playable characters would mean a lesser ex...

Re: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

Been a bit too busy, haven't been on here or playing much Pac-Man. My score seems to be a proper wall for me though, got a couple of runs of almost the same score (100 off once). Congrats on the new score.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve been playing God of War. It is excellent 🤩 I got it for Christmas. Didn't grab me until I got to the lake but it is fantastic. It's hub and spoke design rather than open world but I love exploring all the nooks and crannies which I wouldn't quite do in an open-worlder. Really got a good feel f...

Re: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

Fuck, that did not last long.

I planned a nice relaxing Sunday morning. Instead I spent it shouting at my laptop. The upside is that I broke 2 million.

I knew it was a bit special by the last 40 seconds of the run. Don't ask me to do it again though. :)

Re: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

I spent 2 .5 hours on Wednesday trying to beat Ksub's score and couldn't even match my own.

Then I get this on my second run today. :D

Re: Retro gaming

Ridge racer type 4- Super slick racer, still looks beautiful. GTA 2- Often forgotten about in light of it's sequels, well worth playing. Point blank- I'm guessing not but If you have a crt, get a lightgun and play this! While I'd play RR4 over Gran Turismo 2, do pick up a copy of GT2 for cheap if y...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Jan 1 - Wonder Boy in Monster World (Sega Mega Drive Mini) An engaging 2D action RPG. It has good variation in enemies and decent dungeons to explore with some hidden items and rooms. Combat is limited to two weapons and some magic spells which I didn't use often, usually on bosses. There are two ty...

Who is this mystery Colin, and what does he want?
Well, I'd like to have a go at Ksub's score, but I won't get around to it until the weekend.

Re: The Great Big CaR Forum Quiz 2019!

It may have calmed down but didn't help with the anagrams. Went ok until the horses, only did 5 anagrams and threw in wild guesses for the DLC. Didn't even guess some questions. Great quiz though. Round 1: In The Beginning 1. Which legendary 8-bit composer, who's credits include Jack The Nipper and ...

Re: 2019 in Gaming and your Game of the Year

As usual I didn't jump on many new releases this year and Wargroove is the only 2019 release I finished, With that in mind here's my 5 favourite games that I played for the first time this year. Red Dead Redemption 2, Donkey Kong '94 and Tetris Effect all just missed out on the list. 5. Yakuza Kiwam...

Re: The Great Big CaR Forum Quiz 2019!

I'm looking at it too, but I only have four anagrams so far so I'll hold off posting for a bit.

I also only have four horses, but I won't get any more of those. :(

Re: December 2019 podcast

Damn! I think that's my reaction every year though.

9 games I've finished, at least 7 more I want to play and plenty more that sound like good listens.

I had an outside hope that one game would be included. Its the very last one. :)

Re: Your Games of the Decade
