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?

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.

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.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've completed the world tour of Sonic All-Stars Transformed on hard, but there's still two events locked behind a 200 star gate, which would mean completing all events on expert. I don't think I have the patience for that, the skill-based events are fine, but the races have even dirtier AI than MK8...

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

I'm a bit puzzled as to why we're getting the Core Grafx model - it was the TurboGrafx (no 16 suffix) that was released in PAL form - I had one, and an RGB modded PCE. Happy days. Sucks that Rondo has been announced for the JPN model but not the UK one, Fighting Street would be a nice addition simpl...

Re: Mega Drive Mini

Seems that the version of Tetris isn't the almost-lost original from the MD years, but a new one coded from scratch. Darius port also looks excellent.

I tried to play the Lemmings mobile game, wondering how bad it could possibly be. It's bad.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Kunio Kun Collection Haven't seen this one, what's on it? Waiting to see what's on the Contra collection, as again, I already own Contra on X360/PS4, Super on X360, and III on SNES Mini, so the other four will have to be decent to make it a worthwhile purchase. I'd guess at the MD game taking up a ...

Re: Too many worthwhile games?

To be honest, my backlog is ridiculous. The pile of stuff I've not / barely touched includes Super Mario Deluxe, Yoku's Island Express, Hollow Knight and Dead Cells, Redout and Dirt Rally FFS! I've an absolute pile if indie stuff to play, at last count there were almost 40 on PS4 and a good dozen mo...
