Re: Streets of Rage 2

Re: PS4 Exclusive Recommendations?

The Yakuza games. Not really exclusive, there are pc versions and a couple of Wii u games(?) but you can't get them on Xbox yet. Infamous games are worth a punt and likely dirt cheap now. The knack games, the order and killzone can be picked up cheaply and all worth time. Yakuza 0 is absolutely awe...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Just another Mega Drive Monday... Road Rash ESWAT Pit-Fighter Columns E-SWAT was always one of those rose-tinted games for me that didn't match the memory - loved the box art and loading sequence, then the game never seemed to follow up! Some of the bosses in it are just unfair.. :D I wonder if the...

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

A copy of Desert Strike for the MD - without the instruction manual and box is in a bit of bad shape, but just a couple of quid so will be happy as long as the cart works!

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Is it the case that the PS1 Classic hasn't sold as well as Sony had hoped? If so, is it just because the appetite for that retro doesn't match that of the Nintendo classic stuff? Or that the reviews of it not being as well done as it could have been (the display settings etc.) turning people off th...

Re: Wargroove

That's great to hear! Positively loved Advance Wars on the GB advance so hopefully will enjoy this one too.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Very nice selection there !

I would love to play Toejam and Early, but am worried that it won't have aged very well.

Was Judge Dredd worth getting? I didn't hear of the game coming out so assume it must have been towards the end of the console's period on sale.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Is that one worth getting? I saw it was on sale (something like £0.89?!), but guess it has to be worth the investment of time also.

Re: Retro consoles on a 4ktv

It's definitely a consideration! I had thought of getting a CRT, but ideally you need a spare cupboard or something to wheel it into, and then you look up the description of a big-screen Sony Triniton on eBay: A very reasonable £25, but the description reads: "Bring a van and two strong men"!

Re: Is the Wii U still worth getting in 2019?

I'd add Zombie U to that list. It's available on other platforms, but the use of the Wii controller is excellent (as a map, looking in your bag, a camera etc.)

A really underrated survival horror game, and one not set in the US for once.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

FINALLY finished Dead Cells. Although, it was after the patch, which everyone is commenting has made the game somewhat easier at base level.

Ah well .. after 14 attempts I finally beat the King's Hand (NO-ONE beats me 15 times in a row) :D

Re: Retro consoles on a 4ktv

Incidentally there is an article in this months Retro Gamer mag!

A couple of worthwhile suggestions there - although none of the wortwhile ones seem particularly cheap, and once you've added to the price of the Megadrive then you're getting towards the Analogue machine territory..

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Astral Chain was probably the highlight for me. Also liked the look of the new Castlevania and ofc the new Fire Emblem (although by the looks of things it's going to be some kind of Fire Emblem: Saved by the Bell edition, with all of them in high school? :) ) Also did laugh when the video transferre...
