Re: Best version of Battle Chess or even chess game in general?

Re: What are you currently playing?

Oh, and before that I spent a bunch of time playing Sekiro, which again I loved loads. Managed to beat all the bosses/see all the endings. Awesome combat, great difficulty curve and some of the most fun bosses in a game I've played. Not quite as difficult as its made out to be either! Is the big sn...

Had 3DS Wario Ware Gold in Argos for £5 reduced from £30. Also got Metro PS4 as it was £10, I heard it needs to be played on easy to enjoy it as it’s very hard.

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

Shinobi, you are going for a complete C16 plus 4 collection, or are you trying to complete a subset? Looks like it will be a U.K set after people on Facebook have brought to my attention lots of German games, or game I never thought existed outside of Magazine adverts. Several Anco games like Atlan...

Re: Critiques of the RPG genre

I'm looking for some genre critics of the '90s. There have been game designers strongly opposed to both FPS and RPG genre - advocates of exclusive markets, redefining principles, etc - and their interviews/devblogs are all lost. I'm looking to see if anyone has any references; physical or archived....

Around 40 rarer Commodore 16 plus 4 games as I try for a complete set. Including Anco Demolition which I thought never actually got a release. Think the Anco games will be impossible to source

Re: Tiger Road - US versions?

Merman the US PC Engine Tiger Road was different to the jap version as it was made far easier and did away with randomly spawning enemies. Every 1 credit replay on Twitch is the US version, allegedly the jap version it’s impossible to pass level 4 as enemies spawn over you as ultimate jump. PC engin...
