Analogue Pocket.

I am 100% all over this. Something that can play all my Game Boy, Neo Geo, Atari Lynx, Game Gear, etc... game via FGPA.

Yes. Yes, please.

I’m kinda the exact opposite on the pocket. With the Mega Sg it’s the ability to play my original carts on my HD tv that sells it. I don’t really need that with my handhelds.

Glad it exists, but I don’t need it.

Or you could hack an old Vita.

EDIT: Ah sorry, didn't realise it actually played the carts! (I was also taking about the Analogue Pocket).

Yeah, I understand the system doesn’t suit all needs. I love the Mega SG but doesn’t really suit my requirements.

To be honest, I kind of don’t need my Super NT for the same reasons.

But a single handheld device that can play all my carts, on a backlit screen, in hardware from Analogue, with the performance reputation of Anaolgue - I’m well up for one of those.

A Kamiya-led Okami sequel just got sort of announced!? Ikumi Nakamura (the cool lady from that Tango Gameworks game at last E3, also worked on Okami) has been posting stuff on Twitter hanging out with Kamiya, where they suggest it's happening, or they're trying to make it happen at least. I have a feeling this is just them messing about and it's nothing official, but even this is way closer to an actual confirmation than I'd ever expected to see.

They should just release the second third of the game, nobody would even notice!

This is the most interested I’ve ever been in a Blizzard event.

Sadly, all for the wrong reasons.

I must admit, I'm not sure there's a single Blizzard game that appeals to me. I'm not sure I could think of a worse way to spend two hours, and I watched a whole Nintendo Direct for a game I have no intention of playing :lol:

I don’t remember if it even *has* a credit roll. Finishing the main storyline is just one of the quest lines in the game.

God knows, I've never finished a Bethesda game despite putting probably over 100 hours in to Oblivion, Skyrim and Fallout 3 and 4 each!

Have many people on here actually seen the credits roll on it? I must have stated it at least 6 times across 4 different systems. 35 hours on the PS4 was my most substantial effort.
I was approaching 400 hours on my 360 save and still had the vampire dlc to go. Happily married with several homes across Skyrim.

Skyrim is easily one if the best games I’ve ever played.

I found it immersive, compelling, rewarding and fun.

I’ve played it through many number of times, lots of different builds and enjoyed it each time. Xbox 360, Xbox One and Switch.

No weapon or armour mage was probably the most fun build.

I used to love going out without anything and only using what I’d come across and see where it would take me.


Que Clippa calling me a carrot, or trying to mug me off in some other for never reading War & Peace properly or 1CC’n Bubble Bobble - come at me softcock.

No, the only other ES game I played was Oblivion on the 360 - which equally blew my mind at the time but I do admit I enjoyed Skyrim more.

In fact, Oblivion was the game that forced me to get a HD TV for my 360 so that I could actually see the spell I had equipped in the bottom right.

It also really opened my eyes in terms of what console games had got too with the release of the Xbox 360.

I’d previously been locked in a multi year PS2 and the latest Pro Evo cycle for about 5/6 years.

But yeah, Skyrim - I really love.

Skyrim had a third-person option but it positioned the avatar slightly to the left and closer to the camera than is normal. Again, it just didn't feel or look right.
If you press L3 in, then tilt R3 forward and back in 3rd person mode, you can adjust the draw distance in the camera quite a lot.

It really makes a huge difference.

FWIW, I find 3rd person mode almost essential for Mage builds.

Brilliant, thank you. I own it on Switch and I just know I'll make another run at it. That's great to know.
It was a real game changer for me and would often tailor it on the fly to suit what was going on.

Especially for certain character builds (Thief, Mage, etc...).
