Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

While shopping for something to play for my DS, I came across Kirby Super Star Ultra. Never played the SNES original and I do like the pink marshmallow quite a bit so thought why not pick it up? Went and blazed through Spring Breeze and Great Gourmet Race alongside some of the minigames such as the ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I have not played a snowboard (or indeed any sports) game in ages so thought I would give Steep a try. Interestingly, it is much more than snowboarding with skiing, wingsuits, sleds, parachutes and even jetpacks to use in various events. The controls are responsive and tight and the sense of speed r...

Re: Console Special No. 8 (recording 3.7.20): Xbox 360

I have always had trouble getting into Microsoft’s line of consoles. The original Xbox was a black brick with an ugly lime green circle on top which looked extremely unappealing compared to the futuristic PS2, the cute dinky Gamecube and the elegant Dreamcast. Its controller was also too large and u...

Re: Games Completed 2020

I never tried out Arkham Origins, just dismissed it because it wasn't a Rocksteady Batman title. That might have been unfair of me, this new title does sound intriguing enough. Ironically, not too into the series that Rocksteady is focusing on next so will probably give it a mix. Thanks for the head...

Re: Your Favourite Game! (per console)

This is a tad bit easier than the top 50 topic a year or so ago for me to compile. RPGs and platformers tend to be the dominant genre for console faves, which does not surprise me. Here is my list: Mega Drive - Sonic 3 and Knuckles SNES - Chrono Trigger Game Boy - Pokemon Red PS1 - FFVII N64 - Banjo...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

This is going to be an unusual request as it is about a game I have never played and have no intention of ever playing but it is such an interesting title that I think a Cane and Rinse on it would be well worth a listen. That title is YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. This title is fascinating for numerous re...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#10 - Trials of Mana (2020) Oh my god, this game... I LOVED it. This is exactly what a remake should be - something that respects and reverse the source material enough to leave many of the original ideas in tact, but recreated with modern technology in mind. As someone who enjoyed the demo, this i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Since I greatly enjoyed the first two Arkham games and it is going to be covered this year by Cane and Rinse, I figured now is as good a time as any to jump into Arkham Knight. I am enjoying it so far. Combat is not as fluid as Spiderman but it is still fun to beat the stuffing out of goons. However...

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

Banjo Tooie has a reputation as being a darker game than its bright and cheery predecessor. It starts with your arch nemesis killing one of your friends, your house and homeland being destroyed, and the world is going to be drained of its life in order to get the villain’s body back. And this is all...

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"? Maybe something from the Spectrum era l...

Re: Sound of Play: 246

This is an interesting year with the end of one console generation and the beginning of another (though the dreamcast was 2 years old by then). A lot of stuff I have no clue on but this is the small sample of games that I could identify in this episode: Marvel vs Capcom 2 Jet Set Radio Kirby 64 Perf...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It's really not the nostalgia goggles speaking; the original FF7 is simply better than the Remake. While I enjoyed the demo of the remake a fair bit I have to say that the original FFVII really does deserve a lot of the praise it gets. I only played it for the first time two years ago so that is no...

Re: 447: Yakuza Kiwami

I had a really good time with Kiwami and I definitely want to stick around for the rest of the Yakuza series but it does feel ever so slightly disappointing compared to the godly Yakuza 0. Substories, for example, were a bit more samey with Kiryu constantly uncovering and failing for various scams. ...

Even though the world has slowed down, time can still go by quickly that it might seem like only yesterday since you last posted so don't feel too bad about going offline for a bit, Alex. Great to hear that your friend is improving!

No problem Suits. If they keep this level of restrictions up for a little while longer then the damage should be substantially reduced.
