Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Grimvalor on Android with Bluetooth controller. Dark Souls clearly referenced with multiple 'You died' screens, and many other similarities. Dank environments and music notes. Not sure the depth of the lore equates but the git gud approach, failing and learning does. Regular enemies seem less challe...

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

I'm also an older gamer, sailing merrily into my mid-fifties. Welcome. I wonder what % of people our age still play games. IRL none of my mates play. Do you think there's still a stigma about gaming for people of our generation? At least I can enthuse about games with my son and step daughters boyf...

Re: Console Special No.4: Microsoft Xbox

Yes. Yes, yes, yes. Play Ninja Gaiden (Black). There is nothing quite like it on the market today. That's the plan. Picking up the xbox on Wednesday and Ninja Gaiden it will be. I remember struggling with that first boss in the Dojo room. The city with the building with the coloured lights. Such at...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Evoland for a bit, and now Evoland 2, which apparently is more awesome. I got an Ipega Bluetooth controller and searched for games that are compatible with the controller. In most top ten lists Evoland came pretty high. It's a game for old school gamers and while you upgrade your character in rpg st...

Re: Console Special No.4: Microsoft Xbox

There are loads of good games! Which is why the 'early euthanasia' of the console as pointed out on the podcast was tragic. Such potential. Still I'm sure the gems will hold up still despite moving 2 generations forward. Kinda cynical really the way the companies exploit gamers for £$£$£ knowing us...

Re: Console Special No.4: Microsoft Xbox

Great listen as usual. So much so that I have sourced (from another forum, a bike forum!) a free OG xbox console to re-live some happy times with that big black box. I'm wondering how it will hold up compared to the PS4 graphics I've become used to. Gameplay I think should still be epic, and for me,...

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Thanks for letting me in. Thanks for the many hours of elaborate discourse delivered with enthusiasm, humour and detail (warranting the Patreon subscription. A bargain at the price) An older gamer approaching 60. I stated with Pong in the 70's and still marvel, as I did then that i could influence w...
