Re: All things Yakuza (Ryū ga Gotoku)

IJINCHO WILL BE 3-4 TIMES BIGGER THAN KAMUROCHO & GAME LENGTH WILL DOUBLE?! Damn. I spent about 75 hours on 5 and 0 each. More does not necessarily mean better. Detailed locations have always been a big part of Yakuza. It will be interesting to see how they handle it. So, I am currently 44 hour...

Re: Anyone a fan of emulation here?

Agreed with many here on the benefits of emulation, particularly in regards to preservation and accessing titles not available in certain regions. For example, I would never have played the delightful Mother 3 if not for the fan translation patch done by the dedicated bunch over at starmen.net and G...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Ghost trick was easily one of my favourite games for the DS. A interesting premise, compelling story, fun characters and intricate puzzles all add up to one good time. Often in the game, the main character is in pretty dangerous and tricky situations and when things are at their bleakest, this littl...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Galaxy 2 is truly wonderful, just brimming with creativity and fun. Along with the original, absolutely worth getting a Wii for. Still plugging away at Yakuza 0, just going around the district is a real delight. So far, I had to put up with a diva of a director for a shoot, help a hardcore punk band...

Re: June 2019

Just got around to listening to this one. The section where everyone is recommending their favourite LPs and general Youtube stuff reminds me of one of the best Let's Plays I ever came across. Since Ryan mentioned Diabeetus and Slowbeef, their playthrough of the entirety of Sonic 06 is just an absol...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just started Yakuza 0 on PS4 and it has made a great first impression on me. Story seems to be legit compelling and the combat has the potential to be deep and rewarding. Also there is a goofy campiness to the whole thing that is quintessentially SEGA to me and has really made it very endearing, Kar...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Gravity Rush 2 has been pissing me off lately, I am at a part where I have to use my gravity shifting powers to stop missiles from hitting a tower and let me tell you that this game is at its absolute nadir whenever you have to shift gravity under a time limit. I always panic and overshoot my target...

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I think the switch over to the more 'realistic' graphical style with FFX is when I lost interest in the series as a whole. The outlandish costume design and hairstyles make sense visually when the characters themselves are very stylised, but they look ludicrous on relatively real looking human figu...

Considering how big gaming reveals get leaked so often these days, that is truly impressive. Must have very tight security in Nintendo HQ!

Yeah, never played any of the Panzer Dragoon games so I cannot wait to pick it up later this year! Glad Sega is going back to some of their Saturn stuff, it was always a neglected machine when compared to their other consoles.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

Anyone else think that the FF7 character designs lose every single ounce of charm and instead actually look really silly when they’re rendered in the quasi realistic style of the remake? Yep, 100% agreed. I played and finished FF7 for the first time last year and I thought its chunky visual style g...

Re: Our Patreon

That "SJW" reviewer is ridiculous, the podcast only gets political when the games themselves cover political topics and if you are going to do a proper analysis of what makes a game work or not, it would be glaringly incomplete without mentioning the political subject. Imagine the Bioshock...

Re: What classic games or series are still to be looked at by C&R that you hope get covered in the future?

With Panzer Dragoon being rereleased later this year on digital platforms, it might be more likely that the team covers it than would have been the case prior. I never played the originals so I am really hyped for it myself personally. Donkey Kong was one I had always wanted to hear getting covered ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I so wanted to like Night in the Woods - the music, art and writing are all incredible. I just wish it had more in the way of actual, you know, gameplay. Some platforming, some point and click styles puzzles... anything to get my teeth into. I know there are those that disagree, but I'm firmly of t...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

One I just thought of that would make a really fascinating episode is Night in the Woods.

Not to mention, the political themes it deals with are s...

Man, they were everywhere, weren't they? I remember one year GameCritics.com gave their game of the year to Dead Island. :lol: Those guys over there really love their zombies. In fairness, it probably was the best of the zombie games*, and reasonably good fun with a good, if buggy, co-op element. E...
