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

Saw this on Reddit today and thought everyone should see it!

Awesome work by this guy in Majoras Mask to play various famous tunes on the 3DS.

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

Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders! I remember my old 386 PC with a whole 2mb of ram and a 40mb harddrive pumping this tune out through it's sole PC speaker back in the day... the whole PC vibrated to the music and it felt so epic at the time! My PC speaker used to vibrate massively at one speci...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

In honour of both Carrie Fisher and anticipation of going to watch Rogue One soon, I'm currently watching the original Star Wars trilogy... with a twist, I got a copy of the "Despecialized Edition" which is a fan-made project where someone has gone to great lengths to make a full HD experience simil...

Re: Graphics Cards Rant

A 1080! Nice, yes that's in my plans for next year for sure, was planning on a whole new build as my current motherboard won't support a faster RAM & SSD. Looking at an i7-6700K, 32GB ram, 1TB SSD to go with it... that should be future proof for a few years :) To be fair the cards we had were 970 FT...

Graphics Cards Rant

Went away for a few days to see the family over xmas, I come from Shropshire, home of Volume 6's upcoming first game, I believe! In fact I grew up in the very kind of small village that game represents. Anyway, I digress... When I came home, and turned my PC on... nothing happened. Just went to the ...

Re: Gaming highlights of the year

My Gaming highlights of the year... I reckon i've put in about 600-700 hours in just these 6 games in the past 12 months, let alone countless others which are much less: DOOM – Didn’t like the original and don’t normally like FPS games but tried the demo of this and it blew me away! So visceral… and...

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

Machinae Supremacy just released a new album in the past week or so. If you've never heard of them, please do check them out... Basically a swedish metal band that uses a C64 SID chip as one of their instruments. The SID chip has become less prominent in recent work I think, but with a 15 year back ...

Re: Should I buy a 3DS?

....I would agree with other people that you might be better off waiting to see what the Switch has to offer Thanks yes I think this is pretty much where I am at now, I'll wait and see what the Switch is like, I'm not convinced I'll be using it as a console at home so it will be just the portable a...

COD Infinite Warfare is free this weekend apparently.

I guess sales must have been truly dreadful to provoke that kind of deal already!

Really enjoyed his Rocket League episodes too.

Everyone should check his channel out, I fully support what he is doing there!

Re: Should I buy a 3DS?

As for the original question, I think you should wait until the Switch announcement in January to make a decision. That might end up meeting your needs better than a 3DS. Though ThirdDrawing's point about the combined size of the 3DS and DS library is a really good one. OK thanks that's interesting...

Re: Should I buy a 3DS?

Thanks all, some good points made. Michiel - In terms of graphics, if it’s my PC then yes I must have the best and want to crank up all settings to Ultra… I have a GTX 970 in my PC at home I’m already planning on upgrading that in the new year. Although having said that, I was recently playing a bit...

Re: Sound of Play: 71

I have to agree with Good Shot Janson, I personally think the first Mass Effect is far the superior game, despite the strange controls of the Mako. the biggest thing that turned me off the 2nd was the "LEVEL COMPLETE! Here's how you did..." and a bunch of scores after it. This kind of thing kept pop...

Should I buy a 3DS?

This may well be a very silly question to ask here, as I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but here goes... Through the past 20 years, I've always been a PC gamer, with a backup console as either a PS2 or Xbox360. I always shunned Nintendo for their childish graphics and gameplay, and lack of...

Re: The Bittersweet Reality of Your Gaming Preferences

Wanting huge, open world environments to explore, then finding that sometimes actually less is more - for want of a better comparison; Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie. I agree with this comment... I absolutely loved The Witcher 2, completed it and it left me wanting more. Witcher 3 finally comes out,...

The first Neverwinter Nights is free on GOG right now... have hazy memories of enjoying this back in the day, although don't think I ever got too far in it!
