Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yeah, I think that's fair to say. One day people will be saying something similar about us. Poor grandpa nes, it comes to us all. There's probably a handful of other games that still hold up, but yeah, the nes has had it's day, the games are definitely feeling creaky now. Loads of the 16 bit era sti...

Re: Shmups

Man, I can picture you with your collar open, chain-smoking, diagrams all over the office, picture of larsa with a dart through her forehead. I admire your approach, training, chipping away, aiming to milk every last drop of score out of the game. If you manage to put it all together and have a dece...

Mauled by bears or balled by mayors.

Those two have over 120 years of pent up sexual frustration between...

Re: Videogame News

I don't really do handheld gaming any more, but third party grips were always an essential for me, they were always cheap enough so you could experiment and find the perfect one. Might not have been the exact one, but this design for the gameboy sp was perfect, for example. https://i.imgur.com/ZlUJT...

Re: Videogame News

My hands go numb when I'm playing on an arcade stick sometimes, I don't get it playing on mouse and keyboard or a pad, I'm a hypochondriac so i always stand bolt upright and scream "I'm having a strooooke!" I think it's the way I sit with the side of my elbows against the arms of my chair, cutting o...

Re: Videogame News

I only use mine docked with the pro controller so if mines got any of the common issues, I wouldn't know about it.
I did have to buy a usb to ethernet convertor since the wifi on the thing was terrible!

Re: What's Out This Week?

Well, I gave killsquad a couple of hours and it's terrible. It's just a really bad twin stick shooter. There needs to be 10 times as many enemies, the rise in difficulty for the harder contracts just makes the enemies more bullet spongy. It's really boring. The foundations are there to make a fun ga...

Re: Videogame News

Ha! Yeah I didn't think of that. We've moved on a bit, you'd probably be shovelling 20 AA batteries into a switch or something, would you?

Re: Videogame News

Yeah, things with normal batteries were great, you just bought a couple sets of decent rechargeable batteries and you were off. They could make it so that when you plugged your device in to charge, it just charged those rechargeable batteries. I see what you're saying about the sp and stuff, it'd bu...

Re: Shmups

Aaaah, that's the mouse control shmup I was trying to remember! It's free if anyone wants to try it. We were talking about modern shmups that did something different with their controls. I haven't tried it so I can't comment on it's quality but the steam reviews are pretty positive. Legacy of the El...

Re: Shmups

No bother, man!
I can feel my chest tightening, something tells me you didn't try the demos first to make sure everything worked on your haunted laptop. I'm not gonna come back to a room full of feathers and angry flapping, am I?

Re: Shmups

It was a tarted up version for the ps4 and vita, you can read about the differences here . GUNDEMONIUMS is based on the side-scrolling shoot-em-up “GUNDEMONIUM” (2003) released by PlatineDispositif and its remake version “GUNDEMONIUM Re:Collection” (2007). GUNDEMONIUMS is a rebuilt version with a lo...

Re: Shmups

I've only played gundemonium recollection to be honest, I didn't quite get on with the others, but I'll no doubt try again in the future. Hitogata Happa is said to be very unique and hard as nails. There's demos there to try anyway. No, they're not creepy, I don't think, they stay on the right side ...

Thank you! I feel like I don't deserve such patience and understanding, but I'm so grateful! My poor dog is looking at me wondering why we haven't gone to the woods yet. Drink down the sink, fucking poison. Woah, what the hell? Looks like Platine Dispositif has fallen out with their publisher. Might...
