Re: On The Back Burner

Ikaruga needs to be knocked off it's pedestal. People wonder why the genre is so niche. I genuinely believe this is one of the main reasons. Love it or hate it, I think everyone can agree that Ikaruga is not representative of the genre at all. What would you recommend? I enjoy what I’ve played of t...

Re: All things Mega Man

Dash jump into the top left corner is a good place to start with most of those bosses!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

F1 ROC on the SNES is great, I really enjoy it and used to struggle towards the back end of the season when I was young, so going in with an older head is seeing me climb the standings. I was several decades late to SNES and had never heard of this before, but have just watched some YouTube and it ...

Re: GeForce Now

Same problem here. Installed it on my Mac so I could access all the Steam and Epic PC games I’ve amassed, but it only recognised bits of my Steam account. By the time I’d messed around working that out my free account daily time period was about done and I’ve not been back since. More than enough to...

Re: On The Back Burner

Good thread and I now have a start to my regular list of the 10-15 games I plan to play next. Some of which were probably on my last one... Wargroove Never played much turn-based strategy, but as much as I enjoyed this one on Switch for what must be most of the campaign, the concept wore thin before...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Bioshock on PS4 from this month’s PS+ offering. It was good, motion-sickness aside, but didn’t blow me away and I’m on the fence about whether or not to give the sequels in the collection a go. Last year’s Demon’s Tilt on Xbox is firmly in my top 15 games of all time, and I’ve now got its P...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I knew a fair few people were disappointed in the PS Classic but if you could get it hacked, then I might be more inclined to check it out! One thing I am curious about though, is if a hacked PS Classic can take dual shock controllers or are you stuck with the old school controllers? Especially in ...

Re: 422: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon/Ritual of the Night

Curse of the Moon is my second favourite old-school Castlevania after Super Castlevania IV! Ive played through it three times, and love the atmosphere, the aesthetic, the gameplay and the clever character switching mechanic. I think atmosphere is the one thing holding Ritual of the Night back for me...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished Bulletstorm on PS4 in time for the next batch of PS+ games (though Bioshock seems to be causing me motion sickness). Mostly fun mindless violence that just about didn’t outstay its welcome. Also finished Koral on Switch. Sometimes stunning marine puzzler that also just about didn’t outstay ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Got to the end of The Ninja Saviors on Switch I haven't found a way to consistently beat the Stage 5 boss (martial arts master with the long white hair) with Kunoichi, so I've been banging my head against the wall trying to get it down in time attack before going back to the main game. he's just so...

I play it on Switch now and again. Which is probably why I’m still rubbish at it. Definitely worth a couple of quid!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finished SNES Yoshi’s Island on Switch. It’s still a visual masterpiece, and as I only realised on the penultimate level, an audio one too. And it’s a fantastic platformer. The fact it’s taken me months to get through is testament to it not grabbing me like Super Mario World did though, and I certai...

If anyone was interested in 2D SoulsVania game Blasphemous, it's currently 40% off (so around a tenner) on Switch eShop. I've been waiting for a price drop so here we go.
I’ve been doing the same but the demo has put me on the fence! I’ll definitely give it another go though.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Kentucky Route Zero has been calling out to me this week, saying “I’m your game of the year” and I really don’t know why because I don’t like point and click! Loads of other stuff on the go so at its launch price I think I can wait for a sale though. Bit niche, but Arcade Archives Tecmo Bowl is out ...

Re: Fantasy Zone (SEGA AGES)

Cool thread! I got a Mega Drive Mini for Christmas and play Super Fantasy Zone more than anything else on there. I don’t know much about this version though. Is it worth owning on Switch on top of what I’ve got? Other than if being on Switch?
