Re: Our next podcast recording (13.9.19) - 387: DJ Hero and DJ Hero II

Im late (again) but hopefully skimmed in with this feedback. Rhythm action games and particularly the plastic peripheral based ones live or die based on their music. It sounds obvious but that this is why it has taken me a decade to even try DJ Hero. During the glory days when every Game shop was fi...

Re: What's Out This Week?

So the first reviews for AI: The Somnium Files are starting to come out and it looks pretty decent so far. Simon, are you planning on getting this one next week? I know you're a big fan of Uchikoshi's previous work too and it'd be nice to have someone to compare notes with. :) Ive added it to my wi...

Have... Have I lived long enough to become a parody of myself? Damn, you guys are being ruthless lately. Guess I deserve it! :lol: Yeah, I have all three GameCube versions of RE4. Now leave me alone! :P Haha I couldn’t resist. Although I must admit my first thought was you were after either Twin Sn...

I don't suppose you'd have any duplicate of non-shovelware titles in that pile? There are still two or three GameCube games I'm looking for and that second hand market isn't messing around!
I’ve got a spare copy of a game called Resident Evil 4. Have you heard of it?

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

That’s a great top 10!

What would be your ideal sample set? At a push I reckon I could get a top 20 together.

Re: Retro gaming

I suppose it turned into a bit of a sticker album. I get this bug too! I still have ebay searches set up for books/games etc to complete a set even if I have no interest in the series any more. I need to stop doing that! Before you bundle them away forever any shovelware you'd be interested in sell...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I'm conscious in editing this down to a top 10 I have excluded a lot of older games in favour of those I have fresh memories of but here goes: 1 Metal Gear Solid 2 Soma 3 Tex Murphy and the Pandora Directive 4. Secret of Monkey Island 5. Witcher 3 6 Shadow of Memories 7 Knights of the Old Republic 8...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

That list is phenomenal!

Soma, Link to the Past, Dead Space, Demons Souls, Deus Ex, FF tactics, REmake!

I might have to rank my list now!

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

I’d like to request a piece of music from one of my favourite games Tex Murphy and the Pandora Directive. Admittedly the graphics, gameplay and acting are incredibly dated but I still love it. For those who have never heard of it’s a 90s FMV adventure game featuring Tex Murphy a P.I channeling his i...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I was starting to wonder why I didn’t feature anywhere! Then I realised that’s because my list didn’t rank my list at all!

I might have to do it for fear of expulsion if I don’t!

Re: Our Patreon

I use a third party podcast app called rather unimaginatively “The Podcast App” on iOS. For some reason it doesn’t have the 300 limit Apple imposes so has the entire back catalogue and when I have had issues with the patreon feed on the Apple app it works seamlessly. I’ve paid to remove the ads but ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (8.9.19) - 386: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Apologies this is long and meandering but adds some context to my opinions. My journey with Black Flag starts and ends as all good adventures do....with a queue. It was the night of November 28th 2013, a bitterly cold evening when I decided foolishly to join the back of the queue at the PlayStation ...

Playing DJ Hero 2 following in ColinAlonso’s footsteps. Whenever I start a new mix Colin’s score is my target. Colin, you’ve turned into my DJ Hero 2 nemesis unwittingly haha! Oh shit!

Re: Our next podcast recording (1.9.19) - 385: Prey (2017)

I know I’m probably too late but will jot something brief down anyway. Prey draws from some of my favourite videogames and although never quite becomes the sum of its parts is still a very very good game nonetheless. Bioshock, Deus ex, Dishonored and of course system shock. The atmosphere, setting a...
