Re: Mega SG

Guys - thanks so much ! Really appreciative for the detailed replies. Has given me a lot to think about. Hopefully get to a retro store over the next few weeks (brilliant how these are starting to pop up now!) and will think about where to go from there. One thing that's for sure is that if I go for...

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Yep I thought Shadows of the Empire wasn't bad - have to remember it was a launch title as well for the N64 so probably the go-to game if you wanted something beyond Mario 64.

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Hmm.. probably Rise of the Robots on the MD, after all of the screenshots and talk of the graphics, and then when you actually played the game for the first time! I really don't think DNF is that bad, and for the one to two quid or less you can get it for nowadays, it has its moments. Bit frustratin...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

New Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow night, apparently it's a fairly long one. Hopefully they announce some new stuff for next year. Just been playing through Hollow Knight - absolutely fantastic game, really moody style, and bloody difficult (brought back some old 16-bit era controller-throwi...

Re: Mega SG

JamesC and Shiffy - thanks so much for the detailed responses, that's really useful to know! It seems I now have a really difficult choice to make! :D I have a fair collection of carts so ideally wanted some way to use them. That being said, the forthcoming Mini MD does look appealing (if for nothin...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

After beating Revenge I went straight to ebay and look up 3, the price it goes for is crazy so not sure I will end up getting that one. Shadow dancer is on the watch list though so will hopefully pick that up soon. Ranger X looks interesting so I'll add that to the list too Believe Shinobi 3 is on ...

Gone Girl. One to avoid.
Actually thought the film was better than the book ! :)

Re: SNES Mini Announced

So.. after spending an hour trying to clear the first level on Ghouls'n'Ghosts, realise I'm not as good at computer games as I used to be! :D

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Would have picked up Doom but re-discovered my GBA copy the other week so have played it through again :) (Still amazed how that little console could play games like that, and looks brilliant on the SP version!) Just been playing through Hollow Knight - absolutely fantastic game, really moody style,...

Re: Mega SG

Sorry to dig up an old thread, does anyone have one of these and would like to share their thoughts?

The $189 is a bit of a misnomer - they add $50 for shipping (for the EU at least), which is ridiculous and knocks the price up to a whopping £200 with the current rubbish £/$ exchange rate.

Ah OK thanks - am thinking of getting on the Switch (but possibly waiting until they have patched some of the performance problems).

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Nope haven't had a problem with it - had to look up what it was. What was interesting to me is that it's apparently been a thing forever and that I've not ever heard of it - that's despite absolutely hammering some of them with multiplayer games and the rest of it. So either I and my circle of frien...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently playing Bloodstained - Ritual of the Night. Whilst I'm not 100% sold on the art style, the gameplay is solid, and it matches up quite well with Castlevania - Symphony of the Night. Overall I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves Metroidvania's. Do you mind me asking which machine you ...
