Re: Fighting Fantasy

Picked up a Fighting Fantasy book yesterday for the first time in about 22 years.

Crypt of The Sorcerer. Cost me £2 in a 2nd hand bookshop. Looking forward to running through it later.

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

Sonic Team Racing (Switch). Gone on my hols, so I needed something new to keep me occupied whilst chilling. Any good? I have the previous version on the Vita which is ok, but not a world beater. I really enjoyed whatever version was on the Wii a few years back, still play it now even. It's pretty g...

Re: Amstrad, Spectrum or C64. What is the worst and best hardware for gaming?

In theory, the Speccy was the worst hardware for making, and playing, games on. In reality, talented coders transcended the machines limitations, and produced games as good as, if not occasionally better, than those on rival systems.

Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

I think this is a problem in so many work environments now. Just so much automation, TOO much IT run aspects of modern industry. Bugs and gremlins everywhere. We can't get through a week at work now without something on the IT side buggering top and putting us back. And if it isn't our work, it's a...

Well, once my pad is charged, I'll be playing The Last Of Us Remastered.

Re: Quake II Fully Ray Traced

This is the first time ever I'd say Quake _looks_ agreeable. It was everything wrong with PC gaming. Raytracing does all kinds of good things to it. Really? At the time, it was the showcase for just how powerful PC hardware was. Even more so when the OpenGL patch was released. I mean, that's like s...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

John Wick 3: a rarity, being a 2nd sequel that is as good, if not better, than the original entry.

Good Omens: first ep was good. I have high hopes for this.

Re: Streets of Rage 2

Streets Of Rage 2 is one of those rare games where everything that makes a particular genre coalesces into a "perfect" entry.

SOR2 has it all. Excellent graphics, outstanding music, crisp controls, and (imho) perfectly tuned gameplay.
