Re: Google Stadia

Oh God... internet infrastructure in Australia... yeah, less of an issue with movies and music, but geez... unless you really enjoy loading screens, error codes and menus they'll be a lot to sort out first. But that's a problem for the next generation to solve! I've got my generation of gaming to g...

Re: Google Stadia

Personally, not a fan. But judging by my personal taste in anything vs the general public it will find an audience and a develop a consumer base. The push for streaming, regardless of quality, exists. My parents can't distinguish the difference between SD and HD, plus they love Sky News and Rupert M...

Re: Shmups

SaiDaiOuJou is definitely a generous package, and the inclusion of the novice/360 modes makes it a more welcoming entry to new players. And I can't remember if it's this game or Resurrection/DaiFukkatsu that has an unlockable where the ships basically pilot themselves. I may have enabled that a few ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Are the any Virtual Boy games that don't work just as well on an emulator? I watched a full stream of Wario World (?) and aside from a few little graphical tricks that might have been shocking in VR, I didn't see anything that said, "Wow, yeah, this needed VR to fundamentally work." I mea...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Galactic Force was the game I actually picked out and fancied the most from all of the games available at the London Gaming Market (about 7). This is clever, its a shmup but lets you move from the foreground, to the background and fight enemies that appear on those two different plains. The control...

Re: Retro gaming

Then, my big thing I wanted. I've wanted this for a while, stupidly, honesty mainly for the fun of it and the Wario game on the system. I got myself a JPN Virtual Boy. https://i.imgur.com/3qdeKXK.jpg?1 The stand is good, has all the bits, the mesh face mask is in good condition and all is well. The...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Great: Hereditary Yaaas man! Really good, really tense all the way through. You seen The Witch ? Some similar themes, but it's even betterer. The Suspiria redo is worth a watch too. 2 spellbinding hours utterly squandered by a crappy ending, but it's so much it's own thing, and it's all about the j...

The interesting thing about the exA is seeing the list of Western/non-Japanese game announced, like Akyrios (more widely known as Danmaku Unlimited 3), Super Hydorah, Shikondo and Lightning Knights. Seeing a Western inter...

Please tell me the novelty wears off. That's all I need to hear. Hmmm... nope! I can't do it, I can't lie! What I will say is: obviously, it's an expensive hobby, there's no two ways about it. The upside is that PCB's either hold their value, or go up in price (assuming they are well looked after, ...

I mean, if you want a career where you can do all the cocaine you want with little-to-no legal consequences, catch a flight down to Australia and either play Rugby League or join the banking sector!

Re: Shmups

I recently got Radirgy Noa for the Naomi... but until the current cab is finished I can't really comment on it! But it's in the collection at least, waiting to be played. It's the older version on the Naomi cartridge, not the GD-Rom version (Radio Allergy), which has an old and new version in and of...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Is Polar that bad? The graphic novels were fairly interesting, if not hugely exciting. Well, I can only speak for myself, so other peoples experiences may vary... Here's the thing: I haven't read the graphic novels for Polar, so I had no prior investment in the characters or the story. But I also d...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

My god... I am so very far behind on my Marvel movies... I think Civil War would be the last one I saw. At least it will be a fun, eventual catch up! Slight variation to my formula: Great: Hereditary - there's a quote attributed to David Fincher (which I'm too lazy to find out if it's true): there's...

Seconded! And a Japanese Switch account is even easier, to which Psyvariar Delta is also on.

Though to each there own, and even has to decide what's best for them.

Re: Games Completed 2019

Capcom have been on a bit of a good streak over the past six months, with DMC 5, Resident Evil 2 etc...

So the obvious question is: did someone higher up get visited by three ghosts one fateful night? And if so, could those three ghost perhaps visit other AAA publishers?

:? Information overload! I will definitely second Gundemoniums - plus it's cross-play and very affordable, so low risk for the curious. Received my Switch Brook Adapter by Friday afternoon, so I had not only a little bit of time to catch up with Rolling Gunner, which is really good, but also got to ...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Nothing like sitting down in the evening, getting comfortable and ready to play a game, only to be greeted with firmware updates! Love it! Mate, my DMC5 copy arrived early today only for me to have to wait 10 hours until all the firmware updates and patches and DLCs were downloaded. I get that I do...
