Re: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – Cane and Rinse 338

Would have probably given this a miss if it hadn't appeared on the list this year. I'm glad I didn't. Both the game and then the podcast, have led me down an internet rabbit hole to find out more about the game, the historical setting and of course the themes. A superb inclusion to the list and a gr...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Fist of the North Star Lost Paradise (or Hokuto Ga Gotuku if you want to find the soundtrack anywhere) is an absurd game that has kept me entertained for hours now. It has some great music but the developers appear to make you want to work for it. There are excellent driving tracks but If you want t...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (8.9.18) - 336: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4)

My most played Gamecube game. In a time when I had far more disposable income and time, this was the game I dedicated more time to than any other. Having played and enjoyed the previous games, I welcomed the changes made for 4. The controls felt to me like a progression from the last game and weren’...

Cool, looking forward to it. I'll probably play the PC version that's been sitting on my Steam list judging me.

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

As someone who has played a great deal of JRPGs and Resident Evil, this looks like a great year ahead. For me at least. I hope there's not too much grinding for the team. Can I ask what's going on with the Resident Evil 4? I might have missed something. Will it be a revisiting episode, a different t...

Re: 301: Resident Evil (1996) *recording 07.01.2018

There are many significant differences between the two games than a visual overhaul The awesome FMV intro for one. I only have one other thing to say: This game may have affected me more than I care to admit. I can't play the piano but I taught myself the opening of Moonlight Sonata. Just in case.

Re: 302: Bleed and Bleed 2

The inclusion on a Cane and Rinse list will usually make me check out a game I might have previously overlooked. The post above however, convinced me to buy it and move it to the top of my Steam list. After a few hours and multiple deaths, I've seen the ending on Normal. Much of what Simonsloth says...

Re: Our next podcast recording (26.8.17): Destiny

A bit of context: I bought a PS4 second hand with a copy of the original disc earlier this year. Advice from the forum as well as a few friends who'd played Destiny from the start convinced me to go all in and purchase all the DLC at a very reasonable price in May. I'm not going to repeat what I’ve ...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

The theme for the Italian stage is the game's most bombastic theme by far and it does it's job lending what would be a regular fight into a epic duel between titans. Although, I don't have the love for Tekken that you seem to (I like it well enough, played 1-4), I added this to a playlist immediate...

So the other day, in between the downpours, we had a lovely bit of sunshine and I was walking around, whistling this tune but couldn't remember what it was from. When I finally remembered what it was from, my already good mood was elevated into pure bliss. A celebratory piece that felt like it was u...

Re: Destiny / The Taken King

Thanks for the advice, both the positive and cautionary words have been taken on board. Going for it; the collection is all the DLC included and was £21 on PS+. Sounds like there's enough fun to be had, even in solo play. I don't think I'll go too far down the rabbit hole. We'll see.

Re: Destiny / The Taken King

I know this is recurring question on this thread but is the Destiny Collection still worth getting into? It's on sale on the Playstation Store at the moment. Very quickly: Only have the original disc. No expansions. I enjoyed what I played. Only played through the basic campaign missions once, liked...

Re: Flashback

Flashback is a special game to me. I would have been around 15/16 the first time The is true for me too. When I saw it was being covered by Cane and Rinse, I was delighted. It evokes so many memories for me from that time. The wonderful rotoscope animation, the shameless Running Man and Total Recal...

Re: Sound of Play: 90

Great episode! Some really fond memories for me, particularly Thunderforce III. I remember 'converting' my Mega Drive with a compass so I could play my first Japanese import.
Really enjoying these longer specials. Appreciate the extra effort.

Re: Capcom Versus series

SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium - Neo Geo Pocket Color. Must second this. All true. Marvel Super Heroes and X-Men were great on the Saturn and that joypad was pretty good for fighters. I heard the PlayStation versions weren't great so I stayed away. Marvel vs Capcom on the Dreamcast loo...

There was no 'selfie' in the 90s though! ;) Ah, very true! I'd somehow forgotten it's a relatively new term. However, as we've all had to hear multiple times, they've been around since the 1800s and this "generation was not the first to use images for selfie-expression". :twisted: I really did love...

Re: Life Is Strange

Thanks for that, Chopper. I think it was the dialogue that offended me most. I'm still not sure how deliberately awful "Go fuck yourselfie" was. It came across as something a writer thought was hilarious and clever, not something a human outside of 90s fiction would ever say. Did anyone choose the a...

Re: Life Is Strange

Having picked this up after episode 5 was released, I was able to play Life is Strange in a few sittings within a short space of time and I feel that was to the game's benefit. Although I enjoyed the first episode overall, some of the dialogue was a tad too cringy for me. Too much teen drama. Everyo...

Hi everyone, I'm Marco. I've been playing games for over thirty years. My parents were kind and caring enough to support my interests and I spent hours with friends who loved games as much as me.
