Re: Shmups

Not played that one but I have heard it's got a couple of neat twists to it. I've been extremely back on my Mushihimesama Futari bullshit. I hadn't played for ages because I broke my 360 stick but since I put together the new one, I've had little interest in anything else! I always felt my previous...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm a few hours into Fallout: New Vegas. I didn't love Fallout 3, but that's most likely because I prefer more focused adventures as opposed to open world games. New Vegas is hitting the right buttons. And, aesthetically, I find it easier on the eyes than F3. I don't have $20 to put to the DLC, but...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Some cracking games coming to PS Now this month. Hitman 2 Dead Cells Greedfall All of which I want to play! Still got Metro Exodus and Dishonored 2 from last month to get through, too. Only ever heard good things about the rebooted Hitman games! The setups people create for the assassinations is sc...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Some of that is likely cultural. Japanese companies in general do not talk about their internal issues in public. It’s why shareholder meetings for them are so weird, they’re not used to that kind of questioning. (To this day neither Square or Nintendo will talk on the record about what happened ar...

A bit obscure maybe, but Team Buddies for the PS1! Hours were had with this game with a multitap!

Re: Self-imposed rules on buying games?

Yeah I don't remember the last time I bought a game that wasn't in a sale or found a physical copy cheap somewhere. In fact the vast majority of games I buy are £10 or under, and a lot on Switch have been even lower. I try not to buy games when I have a lot I've not even started, and am being reall...

Re: Self-imposed rules on buying games?

I've only ever broken it like twice or so, but I very, very rarely buy a game that's not on sale. I'm still carving my way through older titles, so I can get away with it. If I was "caught up", I doubt that would be in place. Same here, on sale on second-hand. Unless I absolutely want to ...

Re: Retro gaming

I think we talked about this up thread, but it seems that we might be at tipping point now... lots more people seeing the issue in the last couple of weeks. If you have a PSP, check the battery.

Re: Videogame News

I have a suspicion we won’t see a gathering like e3 again, everyone is going to learn what Nintendo already did, which is that a prerecorded fully managed presentation you have complete control over is far better at connecting to the modern streaming audience than a live show in front of an audienc...

Self-imposed rules on buying games?

I recently imposed a rule on myself, where I have to at least finish the games I currently own, before I buy any new games/systems. I have too many now and it at least gets me through my backlog without spending more money :P I'll let you know how quickly I break this rule. :lol: How about everyone ...

I saw those many times in Forbidden Planet, but didn't pick them up. From what I gather, they explained what happened to Rapture before the fall.

Re: Video game tie-in media

In terms of tie-in media for Halo, I feel the core games provide a pretty cohesive storyline throughout (Halo 4 and 5 I'd have to play through again, as the story wasn't as memorable for me in those games), with books, Halo Legends and Halo: Forward Until Dawn providing supplementary material for th...

Video game music that makes you headbang! \m/

Made this thread for fun, what video game music makes you headbang while playing? I recommend the entire Metal Gear Rising Revengeance OST, but especially the boss battle music: [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iz2sfBKVwI[/youtube] This game is pure euphoria whenever I play it, the gameplay...

They are masterpieces for sure. Shame Megadeth don't play The Conjuring live anymore, but considering the actual lyrics and Mustaine being a Christian, it is probably for the best :lol:

Always great meeting more Megadeth fans!

The forum was already up and running when I joined, but I think it must have been fairly early on as CaR was only on about issue 5 or 6 maybe. I'm sure I remember there being talk of a forum before this one back in the early days, too..?

I tend to have pretty thick whiskers and beards, moustaches, muttons, the lot. I love a set of whiskers. Over the years I've had expensive and cheap beard trimmers. What do you need it to do ??
