Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Be aware that that Hori Joycon has no wireless capability. It only works connected to the Switch. A regular plus-shaped d-pad is still appealing, I think, but worth noting. Also, weird that Hori didn't produce a matching right Joycon. Given you'll only be using them in handheld mode, I can imagine s...

Re: Videogame Deals

Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero are next week's free games on the Epic Games Store :shock: I didn't really get on with the former but the latter is excellent too and just about doesn't outstay its welcome at around 15 hours. Both games are now available on the Epic store. Free for the next...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Well I've just downloaded it too after all this chat! I've only played a little Picross before, years ago, and can't remember a jot about how to play it! Pixel Puzzle Collection has a pretty decent tutorial and then ramps up the difficulty in a steady fashion. Needless to say, feel free to ask for ...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

You can always solve it without guessing! Can’t wait to find out if that’s true too! It should be, but I could've sworn I'd run out of known cells to fill/clear. Turns out my fuzzy, late-night brain missed one (admittedly easy-to-miss) box that I could clear. Needless to say, having solved it with ...

Re: iOS and Android gaming

Konami quietly released a Picross game called Pixel Puzzle Collection on iOS, spanning their 50 years of gaming. Several of the team, including myself, have been playing Pixel Puzzle Collection. I've been putting quite a bit of time into it over the past month or two; you're right about the value -...

A lovely blast from the past, and the last year of SFIV on the EVO main card. Thanks for prompting me to rewatch that, Stanshall! :-D

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I'm surprised to see Silent Assassin in there over Blood Money but that's partly my own nostalgia talking. Fear not, I like Blood Money pretty-much exactly as much as Silent Assassin. I know for many fans, Blood Money was where IO fulfilled the promise that the Hitman series had held up to that poi...

Re: The Street Fighter thread

Capcom have apparently remembered that SFV exists... surprised this dropped now rather than at EVO on Sunday, maybe they’re sulking cause they’re not the final game anymore. AFAIK, it was leaked via a Steam store page update earlier this week, so Capcom decided to officially announce today rather t...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Excellent list, Sinclair Gregstrum! A couple on there that sparked some pangs of regret as they only very narrowly missed my list. Speaking of which, I had another crack at my own list tonight and I have it down to 50. Some heartbreaking decisions, and a lot of changes since my last list in 2016. As...

SMM2 arrived today. Played through the first 20 levels of Story Mode, and followed everyone who's got a level listed in the first post. dezm0nd has already had to remind me to read the damned instructions before playing each level, because I'm an eejit. Also already come up against several levels th...

Best shmups on Vita / 3DS?
I really enjoyed Sine Mora on my Vita. It's been on a load of other platforms too though (not 3DS, as it happens), so you may have played it elsewhere.

I've ordered this today. I honestly expect to be awful at making levels, but am willing to give it a go. :mrgreen: Thanks so much Suits for creating this thread, and everyone else in here for contributing; it's great to have a ready-made list of CaR community levels to try (and fail miserably at). :...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Looking back at mine there are a few suspect choices, and I also blatantly cheated by including Sonic Jam and The Orange Box as single listings! It's your list. I think compilations are fine, personally. The Orange Box was the first time I played both Half-Life 2 and Episode 1, so it's kinda weird ...
