Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

Finished Killing Floor: Incursion. Short and sweet but the controls are a constant struggle. Arizona Sunshine remains the best zombie shooter on there but you need the Aim controller to get the best out of it.

Started Blood and Truth. It's really good so far.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The 'better than Tetris ever was' puzzler Chime Sharp is now out on the Switch.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

One Cut of the Dead - a sort of zombie horror/comedy thing that's remarkable for being sort of rubbish (but interesting) for the first third, then a bit dull (but better quality) for the second and then being astonishingly good for the last third. Slaughterhouse Rulez - if you're hoping that Pegg/Fr...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Bird Box - excellent. A bit like A Quiet Place. Maybe not as good as that but still great.
Tales From the Crypt (1972) - surprisingly good for a really old portmanteau.


TV

Nightflyers - one episode only. Decent looking sci-fi horror thing from George RR Martin.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've been having a great time in Spintires:Mudrunners. In my 35 years of gaming I’ve never played a game that is so unpleasant to play. It’s a horrible game environment, it actively hurts your right trigger finger as you desperately try to get any speed going, it couldn’t be more brown, it explains...

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

So, how do we all feel about Tetris Effect? I like it but the hype around this one is silly. Push Square described it as a spiritual experience which is daft because it's just Tetris, literally just good old Tetris, with some good visualisers. I still rate Rez Infinite as the best PSVR game. BTW if ...

Re: Saboteur on Nintendo Switch

Would be really good if someone did something similar with Quazatron, just adding maybe 5-10% more speed and smoothing out the scrolling (the only downside to the game). Maybe putting a couple more varied enemies, with a few extra weapons to cannibalise , and maybe an ending (rather than just loopi...

Re: Saboteur on Nintendo Switch

Makes me wonder if a new version of Strike Force Cobra could work? They Speccy game was pretty good, but it suffered hideous slowdown at times. Blimey! That's a bit obscure. I had that on a compilation but never really got anywhere with it. Thankfully the compilation had Quazatron on it so that kep...

Re: Saboteur on Nintendo Switch

Is it that or a remake? Because as great a game as it is, £6.30 seems like a lot of money for a digital version of a 35 year old Spectrum game. :? Im guessing the original was a few pence more. I never really rated Saboteur. It looked good and I always tended to get on with games from Durrell but t...

Re: Where did you get yours?

Speccy 48+ - Dixon’s in Tooting. Went in to get a C16 because my mate hate one but the guy there, nay the hero, talked mum into getting a Spectrum. Amiga 1200 - a shop in Morden called Agamic or something. Bought it and then he said it’d arrive in a week. Argh! Came with four games, one of which was...

Re: Backwards Compatability

I wasn't hugely bothered about b/c but a few weeks back I got to spend some time with an Xbox One and so I signed into Xbox Live for the first time in years and it's quite nice having access to 100+ of my old games. I can see the appeal. PS5 needs to sort this out really. If the Xbox One had launche...

Re: From the forum: 188

Tenchu. The story, the music and atmosphere were unparalleled at the time and stealth gameplay has never been as rewarding since. It was the first game where verticality mattered in so far as you could grapple up a wall, stalk an enemy guard from above, roll down behind him and slit his throat befor...

THE PREDATOR - hmm, lazy and slightly clinical, a load of assumption jumping, and things that weren't explained at all! sure the humour between the loons and traegar and family is funny, and there is a lot of laughs even from the predator ..... homages to the terminator and jurassic park get notice...
