Re: Your favourite Ben Daglish music

Sad to hear this news today. RIP Ben. I don’t think anyone could argue with the brilliantly atmospheric Last Ninja leading the vote here. I’ll make a quick mention of Dark Fusion, which is a personal favourite of mine, but the game itself wasn’t a great success. Of the listed titles I’d go for Krako...

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Thanks Crusty Starfish, it's only been 4 or so months since I peeled off another year! Amazing to see that the much more quiet RG forum of today still has that community spirit. It's hard to believe I first signed on here 10 years ago, it was the first time I dipped my toe into any kind of internet ...

Re: Atari VCS

I must admit I've been absolutely fascinated by the Atari VCS and did put in a preorder. This is mainly because I liked the idea of an innocuous and sleek little machine with an open ecosystem, with some nice Atari games as well. It would absolutely be a great fit for gaming on the little telly in m...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Markopoloman being permanently banned after years of service as a moderator. Disgusting behaviour on Future's behalf. I'm sorry you feel this way, but the rules are in place for a reason, regardless of how much great work mark did in the past he was seen as breaking the rules. If we made concession...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Metroid Prime 4 met with an air punch from me. I'm sure it's a long way off, but at least it is coming. Now, in the meantime, perhaps an HD remaster of MP1-3 would tide us over? Have to say, Super Mario Odyssey looked really interesting too. That'll be a day one purchase for me - even though I'm not...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

I've completed Nier: Automata . Well, at least I think I have - it has multiple endings but this one felt particularly "final". Following Zelda: BOTW and Persona 5, both of which ate up vast amounts of my life, I couldn't imagine enjoying Nier: Automata even more, but y'know what? It's a close run t...

Re: Retro Gamer 168

I've barely read the magazine yet, but as soon as I saw that there was an article on Sly Spy I had to check whether or not Geoff Folin's C64's incredible soundtrack got a mention - and it did! I used to just press pause, then sit back and listen.

Re: persona 5

@Shinobi You do the two in parallel, basically, mixing up day-to-day activities with exploring either the main target's "palace" or seeking out treasure/minor targets in Mementos. Developing social links can help you to improve your personal stats (knowledge, kindness, guts, charm and proficiency), ...

Re: persona 5

@Sel Feena - I agree 100% that the dungeons are really good this time around - a vast improvement on earlier iterations. I enjoyed working out the various puzzles - none are especially difficult but they just make the experience a bit more coherent I think. Mementos is, as a procedurally generated d...

Re: Darksiders 3 announced

I really liked Darksiders 2 but for reasons I can't recall, I got distracted from it after about 20 hours and never went back to finish it.

I liked the art style, and the smooth combat. Seem to remember there were lots of barren open areas though, which were a bit dull.

Re: persona 5

Oh yes ... I lost an hour's progress a couple of times while playing the game - once it was on the very last enemy between me and the save room. Why didn't I just avoid the damned thing?!! Problem is that combat seems a bit too straightforward sometimes - then all of a sudden, if you miss an ambush ...

Aaaand, after a mere 100 hours of play ... I've finished it.

Finally, I get my life back!

Re: Bayonetta now on PC

You are all of course absolutely right that a 1080ti is overkill for Bayonetta - but I want to be able to play The Witcher 3 in 4K as well! I have been wavering over whether or not to go with an entirely new system for months - in particular, waiting for Ryzen to show itself to see whether or not it...

Re: Bayonetta now on PC

That was it? After the days of hype building I thought it was going to be Bayonetta 3 on Switch rather than a belated PC port of the years-old original. Still, it's a good game so pleased for non-360/PS3/Wii U owning PC gamers. Well, my fingers are still crossed for that - plus of course an NS port...
