Re: What are you currently playing?

Picked up Vektor Wars for 0.97 and found a surprisingly decent TRON-themed arena shooter. Really good fun, especially at the price, highly recommended. Also Ghouls n Ghosts on MD Mini.... at least I'm trying to play it.... I was never great at it, 4th level was my best back in the day, but goddamn,...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I was hoping Moon Cresta would go down lower than £3... Still... can't get a pint for that round here.

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

Battlefield 3 on the Xbox360 - I rarely pre-ordered back then and I was so into BC2 - I was sure this would be awesome, but honestly, I was gutted. I just didn't find it fun. I tried to keep going with it but was always left frustrated. Probably not a terrible game really, and my expectations were p...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Shame about the Switch version of Bloodstained not running the best, I was really looking forwared to that, I may still get it later down the line when it's been patched. Anyway, got my copy of Super Mario Maker 2 plus goodies today. Had a small panic when i recieved the standard copy of the game w...

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

Really interested in this - During the 80s, I used to look on this with dreamy eyes in C&VG - I wanted a PC engine and Selina Scott.

I still want a PC Engine.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I thought it was an excellent Direct - sure, could have had other stuff in it - that will always be the case. The only downer for me was the lack of a Christmas big hitter - I was hoping for Animal Crossing, so my daughter and I could have some fun with that over the festive period. September looks...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

$40 is the slimmed down base price. That just gets you the headset and gun. $80 gets you the full set. An extra $40 for a few sheets more cardboard! :shock: That's a lot of money to throw at a kid on a disposable toy. Is it really?? Wow - I hadn't seen that. I wonder what the sales are like for Labo?

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I like the concept, but personally I think it's way overpriced. They could be offering the cardboard at a much lower price point with a download. The target market doesn't care about cartridges, and the destructive nature of the cardboard means it can't be a long term object that holds the value th...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Google cardboard = £1 Switch equivalent = $40 :shock: In fairness, you do get games, via a game cartridge. I keep seeing people posting "its XXX for just cardboard" - which it isn't. Of course, whether its value to you personally, is another matter - especially given a target market of @10 year olds.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I flicked my Xbox360 on last night for the first time in..... ummmmm... 6 months. Decided to play Bad Company 2, my favourite game of all time. Games of 2 aside. Seems BC2 is finally dead. Quite sad really, as I had such a great time on that game. I live in hope that we will see a HD remaster at som...

Re: What are you currently playing?

BFV - I love the series - this is good, however they shouldn't have released it until it was finished.

As my mate put it, by the time its actually finished, I'll have lost interest.

Fair point.
