Other great video game podcast suggestions?

Does anyone have any suggestions here for video game podcasts to listen to aside from the excellent output of Cane and Rinse, Sound of Play, The Sausage Factory and Play;Write (I have to write that bit, otherwise Leon will come after me ;) )? Also to shout-out The Video Wizards Podcast created by Ca...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

I'd really it if the series x could brute force emulation for any 360 disc. That would be amazing! I checked on the American Xbox One backwards compatibility page and there are 568 Xbox 360 games and 39 OG Xbox games that are currently available on the Xbox One. Out of these games, 69 (OG Xbox and ...

Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

PS5 Full disc-based backwards compatibility from PS1 to PS4 with multiple options for upscaling, scanlines, supersampling and so on. In addition, more older PS1,2 and 3 titles being released on the store for download. Use my existing PS4 peripherals on PS5. Full Remote Play with my PS Vita/Smartpho...

That's certainly a great price! I live in Japan at the moment, but you can find Xbox One X's for around that same price on Amazon Japan.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Ever since its reveal trailer earlier this year I have had my eye on Superliminal and so picked it up on Switch. It's good, very much getting Portal vibes from it in terms of puzzles and the whole narrator aspect, which also reminds me of The Stanley Parable. It's a puzzle game which is really uniq...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Had a little go on the new Battletoads yesterday as a classic Rare IP being revived for the modern age, I feel obliged to at least give it a go despite not being the biggest fan of the TMNT rip-off. It's actually pretty good and made me laugh a few times. It's definitely button mashing friendly for...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Played through Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I think they figured out how to do really fun platforming levels in the Sonic games in this one. 2 figures out how to handle the speed and roller coaster ride of it all, but 3 has some creative level design that I was much better equipped for than the previous...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Recently saw Life (released in 2017 - the one with the alien Calvin that hunts the astronauts of the ISS). Fantastic movie, very tense throughout and the astronauts do mostly sensible things to try to survive (with a few stupid things thrown in of course, because it is a horror movie after all). Has...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Finished Netflix's High Score . It was fun, well presented and looks like they put some money behind it. A bit quirky. Strange to only focus on Yoshitaka Amano when talking Final Fantasy, but makes me wish their was a regular series like this, picking one topic, game, series or person to talk about...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I managed to bag The Hayao Miyazaki Collection on Blu-Ray for only 30 quid. I got it off Wish and I expected there to be some issue, but it's in perfect condition and works fine on my PS4. It still feels like it's too good to be true, I'm expecting it to randomly burst into flames at some point. I ...

Re: What do you think about the Resident Evil timeline?

The B-movie schlock is definitely what makes these games so appealing. If you have played Resident Evil 7, would you say that game is more akin to a slasher movie? The speedruns of this game are really interesting to watch. I really want to play Resi 7, I just need to hunt down a copy. I've played ...

Hi all! This is Conor from the NVM. Sorry, I'm a lapsed forum user! Thank you all SO MUCH for the support. It was a pretty bleak time back in March, but we're super excited to reopen now.

Re: Exclusives of the generation?

Out of interest, what changes have you seen playing Xbox One games on the X compared to the original Xbox One and S models (if you have those at all)? I owned a launch Xbox One originally and the bump in resolution alone has been a huge step up. If you think the standard Xbox One (including the One...

Re: Exclusives of the generation?

Bloodborne stands out! I only ever hear great things about this game from the Internet and for some people, it is the pinnacle entry in the Soulsborne/Sekiro series of games. Why on earth From Software hasn't capitalised on this and made a Bloodborne 2, I don't know. Direct sequels have not been &q...

Re: Exclusives of the generation?

I agree with a lot of what you're saying here. My One X is also my third party games machine of choice, and as a piece of hardware it is my favourite of the three this gen. I guess I like some of those other exclusives a little more, but to each their own! Do agree that they are behind in terms of ...

Re: Exclusives of the generation?

Everyone here has given me a lot of food for thought when it comes to this generation. I focused on the PC, but I have pivoted back to consoles and definitely need to buy myself a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and Switch when time and funds become available. Such an amazing breath of games, especially for the...

I know this is a bad time to be asking people for money, but in case anyone has even a spare few quid - the National Videogame Museum needs our help! It's basically under threat of closure thanks to the current situation, and they've set up a Just Giving page to try and save it. Here's the JG page ...
