Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

I just realised they missed Shin Contra. Can anyone think of any particular reason for them to leave it out?

I thought the ruined subways were really atmospheric.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Give me New Vegas or Fallout 3 over that any day of the week. It looks nice and all, but it is not an RPG at all compared to the previous games. Plus them removing the skill system, and the changes to the conversation system was just criminal. Even fallout 3 is a pretty lightweight RPG, rhough I th...

Re: Quake II Fully Ray Traced

I'd be surprised if there weren't home brew/mod remasters of Q2 out there already (on Quake 3 or Doom 3 engines for example). Interesting to see it, and fun looking at Quake 2 again after all these years. It was one of the first games I got after moving from consoles so I have a lot of affection for...

Re: Backwards Compatability

Glad to see the original FarCry and the semi-sequel Instincts Evolution/Predator, though I haven't played them since the OGXbox days and they've probably aged pretty badly.
Some interesting things elsewhere on the list. Shame not to see Project Gotham.

Everytime I feel like getting either Resi 4 or 2Re
Make I end up firing up Deadspace and just playing that instead.

Re: Quake II Fully Ray Traced

To qualify that a bit further you could contrast it with the sort of graphical makeover that the likes of Resi 2 and the forthcoming Link's Awakening. They look like thoroughly modern games, albeit without ray tracing, rather than a very old one with some flashy effects tacked on. That would make f...

Re: Quake II Fully Ray Traced

I'm inclined to side with those that think it still looks very much like an old game tarted up. Still, in terms of illustrating what the possibilities for ray tracing are, it does the job; and that's something that Nvidia haven't been able to do with more modern games on current hardware without ta...

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.
Wow really? That's totally at odds with my opinion lol!

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've hammered Farm Sim 19 pretty fierce since getting it at Christmas. It's hard to say as I've had loads of abandoned save files but I must have topped 400 hours.

Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

It would be interesting to see Super Probotector and Contra 3 "side by side".

Re: What are you currently playing?

My G/f has been playing AC Odyssey while I occasionally watch. I think she's clocked nearly 200 hours so has definitely had her money's worth.
I was playing the original AC recently. Funny to see them "side by side".
