Re: Royal Mail's 2020 video game stamps

Seems like not having anything related to Rare is a pretty big oversight. Perhaps it's hard to get the rights to do so, with those IPs being tied up with Nintendo and Microsoft. Or maybe they felt those relationships made those games less "British"? Oh yes, I just realised the choices... ...

Royal Mail's 2020 video game stamps

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/51012498 'Royal Mail stamps celebrate Tomb Raider and other classic video games' Did anyone hear about this? It's a rather odd choice of 12 iconic 80's and 90's video games. 4 for Tomb Raider, Elite (1984), Dizzy (1987), Populous (1989), Lemmings (1991), Micro Machine...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Degrees of Separation (2019) A beautiful but flawed experience. Let me begin with the positive. Degrees of Separation looks great, absolutely beautiful in fact. In addition to the beautiful artistic style is an equally beautiful soundtrack. That's the good. Now for the game itself. I thoroughly enjo...

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

A beautiful piece from one the most beautiful looking games of 2019, 'Degrees of Separation'. The track is called 'Reflected Lights'. Enjoy

Oh cool, just grabbed if. Think it was an error yesterday so don't know whether today is the same or they just decided to let everyone have it anyway. Great. Not sure what's going on with it or why it's going free. Maybe it was a mistake, a lot of people complained about missing out so they made it...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Clouds & Sheep 2 (XB1). So I played this one to completion on PS4 and quite enjoyed it so I decided to do it again. The game is really a lot of fun to play with a very nice learning curve but sadly becomes very unfair in later stages as the sheep get sick or die far too quickly and easily with n...

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games

I think the idea is more of a personal list. So if Wolfenstein 3D got you into gaming, PC gaming, FPSs, fostered a deep love of blasting Nazis in the face or anything else you feel is important in your gaming life, throw it on your list. Thats exactly it, though people are welcome to post random an...

Rocket Leeeeeeeague! Could I just add a +1 to this one. Rocket League would be a great one to hear some deep discussion about. I avoided the game completely in it's early years due to my hatred of the lootbox thing but when I actually played it myself (giving it a chance on Game Pass) it instantly ...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Just finished about 40 hours with Project Cars 2 (XB1 version currently on GwG). Overall I was very impressed with it. I didn't think it would be up there with the likes of Forza and Gran Turismo but for me it really was a high quality racing game with a lot of depth. The game is hugely customizable...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

There have been are a number of 10/10 reviews from Gamespot and others but generally it seems to be getting an 8/10 or a 4/5. I haven't had time to read the reviews in full but it sounds like FF7: R has the quality but not the quantity us fans expected. I'm curious what is there and what is missing....

Really? So it's already printed and ready for sales in the UK then.

Has the Japanese version been released already or is it a worldwide release this time? I didn't think about this.

Never heard about this place before, it looks great. It would be very sad if it had to close. I would like to donate my own large collection to a museum like this one day. Could they not auction off items or ask game designers and big names to sign products and give support or something. Signed copi...

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

Here in Poland lockdown started over a week ago. Mad panic buying started in my town on the first day but people calmed down the day after. Quite strange it was. Toilet rolls, hand wash, pasta and tinned foods were soon gone. The same as most places during this time. Now the shop shelves look normal...

What a great console special! Easily my favourite so far. It's great to hear so many interesting recollections and learn many things I didn't know about the Dreamcast. I'm about halfway through the podcast now, having a 20 minute listen each time I walk to town. Some actually prefer the red/orange s...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

Regardless of how this part shakes out, seeing how they handle the next one is the moment of truth. Because doing a standalone Midgar is the “”easy”” part. It’s the biggest and most iconic location in the game, you spend the most time there, it has plenty of action setpieces and is relatively self-...

Re: Videogame Deals

I'm playing a quite fun and relaxing game I picked in today's Europe PS4 sale - 'Gem Smashers'.

I wasn't expecting much for 79p/4zl but it's good. It's a kind of bouncy animal ball, colour changing puzzle game... quite unique and hard to explain. Good fun though and easy to pick up and play.

Re: Your first four PS2 games

Outside of Pc gaming, I wonder if the ps2 has the largest library of any console? Certainly one of the most diverse. I’m fairly certain that during looking at library numbers in the past it had easily the largest console game number. Considerably over 1000 titles, I’m pretty sure games were still b...
