Re: Photo's of your retro collection.

Stopped doing the collecting thing and have sold off loads since the last bunch of photos I added to the thread. BUT...here is my UK Yakuza collection. This is easily one of my favourite series' of all-time so I made a point of buying the steelbook versions of 4 and the two Kiwamis. Only one I don'...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Nice :D I finally finished the PS3 version last month (I think) and it was one of the best in the series for me although the 100% is the hardest of all Yakuza's thus far in my opinion. I got to about 95% then stopped as I was putting a silly number of hours in. The top difficulty of Winter Combat f...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Do you fight female Yakuza in Yakuza 5 seeing there’s a woman on the cover. I remember a side mission on Yakuza 1 you fight a woman. Most scrolling fighters you always had a bizarre cadre of Super Soldiers for end level guarding purposes. Yakuza was just guys in suits even the bosses where guys in ...

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48103025831_d990d18aea_k.jpg Yakuza 5 for the PS4 arrived today. So that's the weekend and most of next month taken care of. Also getting Judgment next week to replay so that'll be two Yakuzas to 100% this Summer. I've managed both before, so unless I've lost all...

Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

Konami has patched all three collections so Japanese versions of games can be chosen in the "extras" menu. Which is great news for several games across all three collections as the Japanese versions are often seen as the "definitive" versions (Castlevania III, Contra Hard Corps, Haunted Castle ad ma...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've completed the world tour of Sonic All-Stars Transformed on hard, but there's still two events locked behind a 200 star gate, which would mean completing all events on expert. I don't think I have the patience for that, the skill-based events are fine, but the races have even dirtier AI than MK...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Only game showed in the Switch Direct that disappointed me was that butt ugly new Contra game. No idea why it looks so damn bad, Capcom managed to bring Mega Man back with a nice graphical style yet Contra looks so bad, reminds me of those bad PSOne Contra games back in the day. That said, since the...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Been hammering away at my Switch backlog some more, been playing Gunlord X over the weekend - its basically Turrican 4 in all but name. And its darn good. Enormous levels, excellent soundtrack and the difficulty is on point. I'm really enjoying myself. Well worth getting if your a fan of Turrican. A...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Team Sonic Racing. The team mechanic doesn't ruin the game like I initially expected it to. Its really fun, I still prefer Sumo's last Sega racer to this, but this is darn good in its own right and its not as if I can be picky over arcade racers these days...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

In the mean time, I've been playing Katana Zero, which is a fantastic side scrolling action indie game. Surprisingly great story as well. Definitely worth getting. This is 25% off at the moment, I may have to get it, anybody else recommend? Its also getting a free update this month to add more cont...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Resident Evil 0, 1 and 4 for the Switch, along with Dragons Dogma for the Switch. Didn't originally intend to get every Capcom Switch game, it just sorta happened. Don't regret it though, a number of them really do play rather nicely in handheld mode, portable RE4 is a blast.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Had a Capcom day yesterday, playing through Final Fight 2 and Mighty Final Fight. I still can't understand what happened to FF2. Its just bland. Not bad, it does nothing wrong, it just feels dated. Not even comparing it to SoR2 (which is way better), look at Capcom's other '93 brawlers - Cadillacs a...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Kunio Kun Collection Haven't seen this one, what's on it? Waiting to see what's on the Contra collection, as again, I already own Contra on X360/PS4, Super on X360, and III on SNES Mini, so the other four will have to be decent to make it a worthwhile purchase. I'd guess at the MD game taking up a ...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Picked up a few more releases this week, really liking just how much retro content I can get for the Switch right now! Darius Collection, Kunio Kun Collection (was gonna pass on this but the improvements made to the performance of some games was too good to pass up), Konami Arcade & Castlevania Coll...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Im down for buying DMC again (4th/5th time?). I love these Switch ports, will be getting the Resident Evil ones at the end of the month.

In the mean time, I've been playing Katana Zero, which is a fantastic side scrolling action indie game. Surprisingly great story as well. Definitely worth getting.
