Re: What feature from game A would you like to see in game B?

I'd like to see saved data carry over between different games in a series ala the old SSI D&D games or the Suikoden games.

Played an hour of Hellblade and really found it fascinating. It seems a bit simple from a gameplay point of view so far but its ideas are good and I'll carry on with it.
I think I'm about 3 hours in, let me know what you think of it!

Would it be possible to add Outcast/Outcast Second Contact to the list?

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (16.2.19) - Issue 357: Final Fantasy VIII

I played this when it came out and it is one of my biggest gaming disappointments ever. I have a lot of things to say about FF8, and none of them are good. The characters are bland and devoid of ...well...character. The junction system is tedious and repetitive and makes the game a chore to play. Th...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I picked up Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice while I was at home for the holidays, based on word of mouth I had heard. That and supporting physical releases. Didn't know much about it before I bought it. Was not expecting a horror game! I'm quite enjoying it so far! I'm glad I skipped the episode from la...

Re: Red Dead Redemption II

On twitter and other places, I've talked "around" there being scene in Red Dead Redemption 2 that reduced me to tears. I think this is also the scene that David and Sean were talking around during TCGS. Anyone else find this as moving as I did? I thought it really humanised Arthur in a way that the...

Re: Red Dead Redemption II

I don't think you miss anything because of order, but there are missions you can miss because of choices you make.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally got my copy of Night Trap for the Switch, at my parents. It's......really bad. THIS is what the ESRB was created for? It really is terrible. I think they’re bringing Double Switch out again as well, that’s marginally better (and was actually filmed in the same decade that it originally rele...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I managed to get a hold of it today. No spoilers, but the single player is quite meaty. I'm quite pleased with it so far! Edit - just stumbled on one stage I didn't know was going to be in it. It's simultaneously amazing, clever and exasperating all at the sam...

Re: Red Dead Redemption II

I have one major complaint about the game - and it's the same complaint I had about GTA V. I absolutely hate the evaluation system they have for missions now. It used to be pass/fail and that would be that. Now it's a series of subjective things you have to do to get a "gold" in the mission - that t...

Re: Psyvariar Delta (Grazing danmaku)

I picked up the Switch version in HK last week. It is ..... punishing. But I am pretty terrible at schmups overall.

Any tips?

Re: Remasters — the good, the bad, and the fugly

I'm okay with them when they do something along the lines of the first Persona game re-released on PSP. They re-did the graphics. fixed the mistakes they made with characters (they changed the ethnicity of one of the characters to make it more "American" originally), re-translated the entire game an...

Re: Psyvariar Delta (Grazing danmaku)

Very interested but I'm going to wait for the Western physical release. (Amazon says Nov. 30th...but Play Asia says Oct. 23rd?!)

I'm wondering if the updates will be included with it.

I hope it will be as easy to add games to as the (S)NES, but I fear it won’t be.
How easy is it to add games to the Snes?

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm trying to finish the first Shenmue before I go to Tokyo for Halloween, so I can do the Shenmue tour while I'm there.

However I am also addicted to Persona Q which is a mix between a Megaten game and Etrian Odyssey.
