Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Almost certainly an age thing but this isn't an issue for me at all, I rarely come across any judgmental attitudes to games these days and in general it's just too inconsequential and silly for me to care if people think that way. My typical encounter with that kind of tripe usually goes like this: ...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I'm surprised to see Silent Assassin in there over Blood Money but that's partly my own nostalgia talking. Fear not, I like Blood Money pretty-much exactly as much as Silent Assassin. I know for many fans, Blood Money was where IO fulfilled the promise that the Hitman series had held up to that poi...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Enjoying reading through all of the lists in here (Shout out Dynasty Warriors 3) I might have to give it a go but I always end up with too many choices and find it really difficult to narrow down; it's always a bit painful putting these lists together and having to exclude things you love. Excellent...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Does anyone on here watch Dark? I just finished the s2 series and I thought it was brilliant, although I'm not too sure of the very last scene. I know it's got a bit of a cult following and good reviews but I still think it is a bit overlooked, the only people I know who watch it are the friend that...

Re: Videogame News

Yeah I'd say the parents I know are pretty on it with their kids playing games, the same as they are with them watching youtube or just being on the internet in general. There has been so much in the media over the past few years about the dangers of letting your kids play games or go online unsuper...

Re: Videogame News

Anyway, the age ratings on the box are there for a reason, so I would be curious if those "experts" are sounding the same alarms when it comes to mature rated films featuring similar imagery. My guess is that they aren't. They did kind of address that in the study, they think that parents are less ...

If ‘all’ you think they’ll be doing is indulging in mindless violence, you should be aware: they could be picking up more bad habits than you bargained for.
haha that's brilliant.

Happily watch Lil Timmy blow half the town's face off but they better not be huffing those damn cancer sticks!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I’ve been dabbling with Night Trap since the day it came out last year on Switch, gradually getting a bit further through the story each time. A couple of weeks ago I got to what turned out to be a mid-way checkpoint (after all of 14 minutes!), so I’ve been getting a bit more serious, even taking n...

Re: Explain your user name and avatar

I don't think I've ever had a good username and I don't really have a go-to Username either. About a year ago I signed up for a different forum while I was reading I Claudius, I went with Caligula's Horse because I'd just read a bit about the Horse and I thought it was funny (apparently a metal band...

Re: Paradroid - Cane and Rinse 372

I'm someone who didn't know much about this game at all before listening. I found this episode (particularly the developer diary) fascinating, it might be one of my favourites now. I really appreciate these episodes that look back to games from before my time or that I played when I was a kid and wa...

I just started the first game last night!
Awesome, I kind of wish I had done it first but plan to give it a go at some point anyway.

Re: Games Completed 2019

I really want to play Kiwami 2 after really enjoying Zero and the remake of the first game, but for some reason it never seems to come on a sale! Kiwami and Zero are always in the sale, but I'm holding out! Kiwami 2 has only been out about 10 months I'd guess. I think the sale prices for Yakuzas st...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Is there seriously a bad movie podcast called One Good Thing? Mine is called Three Nice Things. I'm gonna go sit in the dark now. haha that's brilliant! I didn't realise you meant you actually made the podcast though, I'll have to check that out. In One Good Thing the concept is they watch bad movi...

Since I do that bad movie podcast
Which one is it?

I was listening to One Good Thing for awhile and that was quite fun. I do love a good bad film, I'd recommend Ghost Shark if you haven't seen it.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I think what would really suck for me is if I play it and end up enjoying everything except for the story and the characters.

Actually what would really suck is if I play the first part and end up enjoying everything, only for the full thing to never be released haha.

Re: E3 2019 - Conference times and general chat

I feel the same as Stanshall. I think it's worth pointing out that even if people were only asking for tarted up visuals and audio all those years ago (I was) it seems like a lot of fans are really excited for this remake and we're probably the minority on this one. Oh dear lord, there is going to b...

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? It doesn't quite work for me either but I'm also not sure that they could have done it any differently. I really...
