Re: Favourite Resident Evil?

Original / REmake by a mile. Second loses too much atmosphere for me, and I find the Nemesis in 3 downright aggravating.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Replaying Symphony of the Night, which is still one of the greatest examples of this type of game ever conceived. There are definite issues with balance and difficulty, but the rest of it is done so well, that's it's difficult to complain. Also dipped my toes into Yakuza Kiwami 2. It's.... yeah, Yak...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I think Yakuza 0 is my favourite of the ones I've played so far (0/Kiwami/5/6). I've got Kiwami 2 on the way for my birthday in a few weeks, time to get sucked in all over again. Currently playing the amazing Ninja Spirit, which stealth-released on the Switch shop last night. Surely one of the best ...

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Kung-Fu Master

My word, that Spectrum version is seriously impressive, is that running on a standard 128k? Wasn't aware of the existence of KFM2 either, I'd love to play that. Can't understand the attitude of folk that would rather hoard something like that than release it into a community of enthusiasts that gets...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've never tried it myself (honest), but apparently you can also sit outside the arena, throw dung pies over one of the walls, and poison him before you step foot in there. :lol: I didn't have to resort to that. Made it up the stairs and dropped on his head while attacking 4 or 5 times did it. Got ...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

I used to love these. Warlock of FTM, House of Hell ,Deathtrap Dungeon and the Sorcery series were easily the best books I did buy a more recent FF book about 10 years ago. I must have re-started it about 4 times but each time kept losing interest. Not sure if its because of my tastes changing or t...

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

Picked up Shikhondo: Soul Eater for sale on Switch. Can't really complain for £3.77. Still trying to decide between Kiwami 2 or Judgement for my next full price pickup, though the inclusion of Fighting Vipers and Moto Raid in Jedgement has probably swung it that way.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Dark Souls on the PS4...Why oh why did I do this to myself? It's a bloody great game, but I'm censored at it. Yet even though I'm on my 10th attempt at the same boss I still want to go back for more. I don't seem to be able to make any progress with this current boss, The Capra Demon though. Every ...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Decided to tackle some of my backlog before any more pickups, so started Salt & Sanctuary. Went OK initially, first two areas and bosses went down without too much effort, then I hit Whispering Woods. Yuck. Platforming with bottomless pits mixed with enemies that can snipe and knock-back even from o...

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Kung-Fu Master

That screenshot looks very much like the C64 version though....?
Ah sorry, you mentioned the C64 later on. Great conversion, I thought it played just as well as the NES one. The Speccy version on the other hand.... Oh dear.

Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

They're a mixed bag for me, simply because it's only really the NES games on either that I haven't much experience with. The SNES/MD versions, have been hammered over the years, and I've no interest in GB games whatsoever. Still feel that Konami could have made more of the 50th Anniversary Collectio...

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

Can Everybody's Golf still be played with a standard pad? If so it's a must-buy for me.
