Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So the good news, the original NES Fire Emblem is getting an official English release on the eShop. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/10/the_original_fire_emblem_is_coming_to_the_west_for_the_first_time_ever_on_switch Bad news, it's another limited time only deal just like the Mario Collection,...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Dead Rising 2 Definitely an upgrade to the original. Saving's still a chore but got a bit more acustomed to remembering myself even if I had the odd moment of losing in-game hours. Managed a satisfying Ending S for this one in one go. Plenty more to come back to someday. Might give it a break before...

Phantasy Star online is the only game that used it for online, some games did LAN via it (Mario Kart).
So yeah, its pretty pointless
I know there's 1 other game that used it for online but its an obscure Japan only title.

Re: Charity Shops

Ehh, got Mirror's Edge and Uncharted 3 for PS3 for £1.29 altogether the other day from a charity shop.

Games are certainly lessening but you check regularly, you might score something.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero

Found out this was a prologue to DR2 so had a short but sweet run of it to even 100% the whole thing in 2 days. Pretty impressive Capcom managed to fit a mini Dead Rising in under a GB.

Now back to regular DR2.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Dead Rising Only a half truth, just made it to Ending B, which I did by waiting on the last 2 hour idoly for the indoors achievement then getting to the helipad. I'll one day come back to it for the true ending but right now, a fellow achievement Hunter wants me to help with the co op missions of 2 ...

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

Final Fantasy XI- funny enough I realized unintentionally I almost have all the numbered FF games in my collection, not counting direct sequels, spin offs or in VII's case, movies. Just missing 11 (Which I assume is just a useless disc to hold up and say "Hey I have FF11!"), 9 and 14. A pound so it'...

Re: The New gen thread PS5/XBOXsX (feat PONG)

Yeah, the PS4 versions for some games was a bit of a head scratcher. For all the flack Microsoft we're getting for making XBONE versions of Series X games, Sony just go ahead and do the same thing. Least you own the PS5 version too if you get the PS4 one but since Spiderman was the only game I was i...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

That was an improvement on the first Partner Showcase. More meaty and less "Oh you don't like shin megami tensei? Tough!" Vibe to it.

Should give Disgaea a go sometime.

Re: Which Retro Game would you like to see remade?

Skies of Arcadia- or at the very least a HD Remaster, mostly to revisit for myself but also be able to recommend to friends without adding "oh btw, it's a pricey game for both systems several gens back". Sonic Adventure 1+2- I think these would benefit for a Crash Remaster treatment. As fond of the ...

Re: The New gen thread PS5/XBOXsX (feat PONG)

I remember when the N64 was coming out, Nintendo Official Magazine produced a free mini magazine/brochure about the system and its features and games. Maybe Microsoft could benefit copying that? :lol:
