Re: Videogame News

You have to feel for the poor staff at CEX at the moment: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-06-17-cex-staff-complain-of-flimsy-till-protection-as-stores-re-open This isn't the first story detailing management's really shoddy preparation for re-opening stores, and it seems like they're putting ...

Re: Retro gaming

Oh wow, yeah expensive game that. Nothing quite like getting an expensive game you desire Is there 😎. I’d love to play it but unless my Japanese gets better I won’t be playing it anytime soon. Looking forward to hearing what you think about it and how it performs 👍🏽. Yeah it's easily the most I hav...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I have to say I started off quite liking it, but every time I see it now I'm really going off it already. Stood up or laid down - it's just not a nice-looking thing to me either way. It's just a bit self-conscious and vulgar, and the fact it is literally one of, if not the largest, consoles ever mad...

Re: Retro gaming

Continuing the Saturn love - it's a big day for this collector! After years of narrowly missing out on ebay auctions and watching prices sky rocket, I finally managed to win a copy of Deep Fear over the weekend! It arrived today, and holy shit am I excited! Don't ask me how much I paid. Let's just s...

Re: Retro gaming

Been wanting to play this on my Saturn for a while now, but obviously I needed the controller and the bundle was of clear interest to me. Needs a good clean and freshen up but it's all in good condition overall. I managed to get it for a reasonable price too, so I'm happy and buzzing to see what it...

Re: Retro gaming

It's not a series I've had any experience with at all so kind of interested to give it go, but as Flabyo said, I'm not expecting it too have aged particularly well. It certainly always looked a lot of fun back in the day, but the Saturn version of the first game was always regarded as a shoddy port ...

Re: Retro gaming

Make sure you check out Wipeout 3 SE Well I picked it up Bailey! Got that double pack with Destruction Derby 2 in mint condition for £22. The game on its own is still a lot more than that, so while I'm not bothered about DD2 wasn't going to pay a premium for just Wipeout! Now if my Polymega would j...

I’m not mocking the game gear micro, I’m mocking the way the internet decided this was going to be huge news and it... isn’t.

At least not yet anyway.
Yeah, it's not huge news in any way, shape or form is it :lol:

Re: Videogame News

I mean yeah they look nice, but they could have actually made them playable. A 1.5 inch screen or whatever it is, is just a bit silly really. And the 4 games per console. It's classic Sega alright, but it's a shame they're just not a bit better. Every time Sega announce something I keep wondering i...

Anyone know of good places to buy PS Vita games? Other than eBay
CEX's online store has a lot of second hand Vita games in stock - https://uk.webuy.com/search?categoryIds=988

Am the only person who likes this? :roll: People seem to be being really critical (not necessarily here but across the internet at large), but to me it's good old bonkers Sega! This is very Japanese, and...

Re: Videogame News

Ah I see what you mean. I guess it's just because Xbox One games will work and be enhanced on Series X but PS4 games probably won't get the same for PS5? Like Microsoft whole thing is that the lines between the generations are really blurred, which personally I can't really get behind. I think its ...

Oh wow, I'd not heard of that before. Guess I got lucky with my copy.
Yeah we moan about modern consoles and game always hitting us with updates and patches, but at least game-breaking bugs are largely a thing of the past!

Re: Retro gaming

Yeah I saw your JogCon posts Suits - it's a beautiful thing! I was very tempted to pick one up, and may still do it if I really fall in love with RR4. One of the games I'm most excited about. I’d be more than happy to drop in a box and post it to you if you wanted to try it - like I said, it really...

Re: Retro gaming

Sony Europe had a policy where you couldn’t publish on the platform in Europe if you didn’t provide minimum French and German alongside the English IIRC. Something like that anyway. Very few Japanese developers had the resources to do anything other than (a usually quite weak) English translation, ...

Re: Retro gaming

If you're going back to PS1 games, Gregstrum, please give Silent Bomber a look. It was one of the greatest action games on the console. Woefully overlooked when it's come to re-releases or remasters. Not even available on PSN other than in Japan. It's really a fantastic game, almost like an early P...

Re: Retro gaming

2097 is a fantastic game. Make sure you check out Wipeout 3 SE at some point too. Best game in the series in my opinion, they never quite got the physics right in future entries. Ok, interesting! I'd not heard of the special edition actually. Have just done some reading and it sounds like something...

Nice, I just finished RR4 (NTSC-J like the one you have there) with the NAMCO JogCon controller and had a blast with it over a few nights. Great little adventure you’re on there dude 👍🏽.

Re: Retro gaming

Original PlayStation advise wanted! After tracking the project for years, and following much deliberation, I’ve pre-ordered a Polymega. Quick bit of context - for those unfamiliar, Polymega is basically a high-end, region-free, modular retro console that plays the original physical games of a varie...

Re: Comfort Gaming

I like to chuck on one of those retro games collections e.g Sega Genesis Collection. Same - the Mega Drive collection on Switch is great for some quick and easy fun. Sonic 2 and Streets of Rage 2 in particular. I'm finding Shenmue 3 wonderfully relaxing at the moment, with it's leisurely pace and r...
