Re: What are you currently playing?

Finally unwrapped my copy of Crash Bandicoot N Sane trilogy. Gritted my teeth and managed to 100% the original which I didn't ever manage in the PS1 days. It's far tougher than I remember, mostly because of the difficulty in placing your jumps on any level where Crash is moving forwards. That and th...

Re: Streets of Rage 2

Was playing the 3DS port again the other day. I've been playing this game since the Mega Drive original and only just realised that you can pick up grenades and throw them! I always ran the hell away so never tried before LOL Max is awesome but over the years, Blaze has become my go-to. I love her H...

Re: Favorite GBA game

Double Dragon Advance. Absolutely masterful update of the coin-op version, better than every single home port of the three 'proper' games, and one of the best belt-scrollers ever. Always wanted to play that but whenever I was on the lookout for a copy, there were more fakes than legit carts, the la...

Re: Favorite GBA game

Be cheap-ish on Ebay wouldn't it? Last I checked, most GBA games don't go for much on there. GBA games can be expensive actually. They long ago became the targets of collectors and crazy Nintendo diehards. The DS and 3DS are next up and are already climbing in price for some games. Boxed/Complete Z...

Re: Streets of Rage 2

One of the greats. The last version I bought was the 3D version on the 3DS which is amazing. Admittedly, I haven't played "pure" Streets of Rage II for ages now. I tend to just play the momentous SoR Remake on PC with a Xbox 360 pad. All three games mixed together with remixed music and the ability ...

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

Urban Reign a Namco 3D scrolling fighter in the same vein as Spikeout. Been after this game for absolutely ages only to be disappointed. It is a weird game. I went in thinking that it would be a scrolling fighter but it really isn't. You need to master the counters and dodges otherwise you quickly ...

Re: Hardships of modern gaming and Dead Or Alive 5

Glad to hear it. Yeah, I totally forgot that Ultimate upgrades itself to Last Round. I don't think it adds any new content to your game, just allows for compatibility between older/newer versions. As for the DLC, you have to pay for all of the costumes but the Compatibility Catalogues are necessary ...

Re: Hardships of modern gaming and Dead Or Alive 5

This COULD be an issue with this specific game and Team Ninja/Tecmo because the Dead or Alive 5 series and its DLC has always been a mess. It looks like it is trying to ask you to download stuff to help the game be compatible with the Last Round follow-up, possibly because the different revisions ar...

Re: 'random niceness' thread

Got a small stack of 5x PS2 games that I want to get rid of, preferably all in one go for convenience. V-Rally 3 The Operative: No One Lives Forever Project Minerva Professional XG3: Extreme-G Racing Timesplitters All are original releases and complete with instructions. If there are no takers then...

Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

Where is Violent Storm? I keep waiting and waiting for a day when I can play it properly outside of MAME. Also odd that they didn't even bother with Simon's Quest to "complete" the NES trilogy. It's a positive thing overall though. Still, would have been nice to see everything whacked together for o...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I will get one when it is around £30, as long as I can hack it and put my own selection of games on Perhaps a dumb question... But if you hack it, does the poor emulation persist since it's the same hardware or is literally just bad quality roms (or whatever Sony used)? As I say, could be a thick q...

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: PS4 Exclusive Recommendations?

I need to get back into SFV. Enjoyed the gameplay and visuals but unfortunately, I don't bother with online as I don't have the time to get THAT good. Playing offline is crap for amassing FM so you're kind of committed to having to pay for stuff with cash. Wasn't impressed with having to pay for thi...

Re: Buying CD's

Added another el cheapo single to the collection today. 5 mixes for a few quid? No reason to say no.

Love this tune btw!
