Re: Shmups

Hehe, yeah, that was a bit weird. I don't think he stole her shtick, but I suppose it could be argued that the jobs she would have been offered started going to him. There was a crossover between the beginning of his career making whacky docs and the end of hers. There's definitely room for both, es...

Re: Shmups

There are so many old games I haven't played, I need to fire up mame and play some of the old classics. Yeah, not being accepted for who you are is awful, we're social animals, and if you aren't being accepted socially, I don't think people realise how much harm they're doing There's that clip I was...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Limmy! I've got "Surprisingly Down to Earth, and Very Funny" ready to listen to in my Audible library. Fucking class Limmy. The sketch shows are brilliant. Excited to check it out. Yeah, he's fab. I went with the audio version too, he writes like he's chatting to you, so it makes sense. Some books ...

Re: Shmups

Square gate for me, I tried an octagonal one but it felt weird. Seimitsu buttons, some prefer sanwa but I tried some once and I didn't like them, they're very hair trigger, I was setting off bombs by just resting my finger on the button ready and that was enough for me to rip the damn things out. is...

Re: Shmups

Yeah, if you get a stick, shove an LS-32 in there, that'd be my recommendation, I've tried a few different ones and always found myself going back to that. I've got one in all of my sticks now, they're fab.

Re: Shmups

I can relate to the worry - I have had anxiety issues myself and have experienced that pointless need for acceptance, moving past that is a real eye-opener. There was one guy I used to feel really sorry for, he was like the forum whipping boy and I used to stick up for him, every day he'd log in an...

He seems like such a sweet, vulnerable guy. Dare I say...savant-like?
Haha. I wonder how much of that is down to the accent and the questioning eyebrows but I know what you mean. He's just so huggable!

Re: Shmups

Mate don't worry about this I need a keyring version of you for everyday living :D I used to post on a forum where if you said you didn't like a game, the people that did like it would take it as a personal insult and gang up on you. This place is much nicer, but I'm still a bit cautious of upsetti...

Here's that run with plasmo and jaimers undermining it, if you prefer :D - https://www.twitch.tv/videos/426896367?t=2h57m18s Disappointing lack of hulk hogan-esque victory posing at the end there.

Re: Shmups

Does it? I don't remember that, maybe it's been updated since I played, or it's been changed slightly for the switch. You got to choose random perks in between levels but there wasn't any of this upgrade shop nonsense . At least I don't think there was. Oh, he chose campaign rather than arcade, mayb...

Re: Shmups

Sky Force Reloaded I didn't say nowt at the time because we're all different and I thought maybe those games would be a good in, but aye, the sky force games are hot garbage in my opinion. Awful controls, you have to grind levels to proceed, it's more about levelling up than refining your skills. D...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I've watched some reviews to try and talk myself into it and I don't like the sound of this team mechanic. I just want to drive my car fast and drift around, I don't want to be babysitting the shitty AI and giving them power ups and stuff.
Has anyone here played it yet?

Re: What's Out This Week?

Hmmm, found it for £25.06 here with the discount code GAMINGTIME - https://www.voidu.com/en/team-sonic-racing That's a bit better. Just checked and I put 47 hours into transformed. Hmmmmmmmm. If it was £19.99 I'd snap it up, that fivers making all the difference. Think I might sleep on it, maybe wri...

Re: What's Out This Week?

The highest recorded price for both on steam is £19.99, that would be without the launch discount if they had one.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Team Sonic Racing What the what? They're asking 35 quid for this! Just looked back through my emails, the first one cost me £2.49, admittedly in a sale, transformed was £13.50 at launch at greenmangaming. 35 quid? and it's got denuvo slapped on the top. Even the cdkeys discount is pitiful at 28 qui...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I suppose if they did make ports for pc they wouldn't be able to sell us the same damn games every generation. They'd have to make the ports a bit shitty so they could release a better one further down the line https://i.imgur.com/T3bYn52.gif Just get all the shotriggers on pc already or I'll scweam...

Gran Blue Fantasy?
When we heard something like that, me and my friend used to say "you've got that on DVD, haven't you?"

I think we're gonna be alright, she's chillaxing on my bed now like nothing ever happened. Yeah, that'd be a good thread. I find ARPGs really comforting, they're dead repetitive and relaxing.
