Re: Shmups

I've been going ballistic on Ketsui recently and it's absolutely god tier. Ooh, nice! I seem to recall you not being a massive fan of either Ketsui or Battle Garegga in your gigantic post from a few months ago. I take it you've been steadily climbing the ladder towards the really, really hardcore s...

Re: Shmups

Looks neat! Thanks for the links. I have bought plenty of shmups in the past few weeks though, so I think I'll stick to those for the time being. I prefer to focus on a minimal amount of different games at a time instead of dipping in and out of dozens of different titles and being hit by choice par...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Yeah, it didn't look all that great, did it? Then again, Nintendo sometimes have really bizarre trailers and marketing strategies that aren't representative of the final products.

...I'm scared. It hurts to see my darlings being mistreated. :(

Re: Shmups

Yeah I saw the AAC+ update, but it didn't come out on PS4, which is where I played it and the game didn't leave such an impression that I would feel compelled to revisit it anyway. I think it has a very cute presentation but it doesn't really compete with the likes of Nex Machina for my money. It's ...

Something to note: Stellaris runs fine on laptops with integrated graphics cards, if you were curious about it but think you don't have the hardware to run it. Obvs you need to meet the other minimum specs, which are fairly low I think.
Nein.

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

All I care about in terms of upcoming first party Nintendo stuff is the next Fire Emblem.

If it's bad, it'll reinforce all the negative stereotypes of the series.

If it's good, nobody will pay any attention to it as usual.

Lose/Lose. :(

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

Btw Simon, I just looked it up and Jurassic Park had a production budget of $63 million, whereas Indiana Jones 4's was $185 million. Even adjusted for inflation that's a huge difference and I believe it had a direct impact on each film's directorial style.

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

Just compare what Spielberg was able to achieve with a few rubber dinosaur heads and minimal CGI in 1993 with the special effects extravaganza that Indiana Jones 4 was supposed to be... I get all your points but Jurassic Park had a huge budget, cutting edge technology and it was his love of practic...

Re: The more I go back to last gen, the worse it seems (PS3 and 360)

It all depends on what you play and what you prioritize in games. For me, technology should serve creative expression (be it in terms of gameplay or narrative). For a lot of players and developers, it's the other way around. I take your point about performance issues. Playing Halo CE again a few mon...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Isn't that on PC only? :o You've changed, man. This hurts for some reason. :( I made a GoG account and bought two(!) games. My heart will always belong to dedicated hardware, but I figured it was a bit silly of me to miss out on the handful of exclusives that interest me and which I could run on my...

Re: Shmups

Well, I started with playing a lot of Resogun, Nex Machina and Assault Android Cactus back in 2016/2017. Last year I dove headfirst into Ikaruga, and now Ghost Blade. Those are the only ones I've ever put any significant amount of time into. It's not that many, really. Plus a few hours of DU2, Crimz...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing a bit of Opus Magnum ! It's so nice to finally be able to check out another Zachtronics game after the excellent Infinifactory last year. Slick and intuitive, can't wait to sink some proper time into it over the course of the coming months. but but but, it's on ps4 now, choppers be...

In other news, it turns out my laptop only ever tanks the frame rate during the post-boss medal shower, which I think is exceedingly polite.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

You monster. In fairness, Prey didn't click with a lot of people who actually enjoy that type of game so it was a long shot for you. Don't get me wrong! It's still the next "big serious game" on my slate. I just wasn't really in the mood for it the other day with all the sensory overload I've gotte...

Re: Shmups

I've been a staunch console and handheld-only player my whole life. Never had much of an interest in PC gaming, which I've always considered too obtuse, tech-centric and unintuitive for my tastes. Crysis came and went and only elicited a scoff and an eye roll from me while the entire gaming world wa...

I haven't touched the game. The goalposts remain un-shifted. Just wondering if you're still in the race.

Speaking of beating your scores, have you decided whether or not to fight back yet? Like a wise man once said:
