Re: Metal Gear Survive Charges $10 For New Save Slots

This game wasn't really on my radar but there's no way I'm buying it now. I'm with Jim Sterling on this; the AAA games industry is now fundamentally dishonest. The $60 advertised price for a game is now basically what you pay for a shell; you then pick and choose the bits you want (characters, skins...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Anyway, I'm currently playing Doom (Switch), Skyrim and Deadly Premonition (both PC). I've just worked out how to sideload the Google Play Store on my Fire tablet and downloaded Super Mario Run so I might give that a workout, too.

My son has discovered Fortnite. Pretty much the same as PubG but the fave game of those crazy youngsters at the moment.
Yeah, I like it. It's less demanding to run than PUBG, friendlier and... well... free. Plus I prefer the cartoony, colourful look.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Quick question about Skyrim. I want to play it, somehow I never have before. I can get it on Switch for around 40 quid OR I can play it on my PC. I already have it on PC in fact, bought it in a Steam sale months ago, however of course my computer is up in the study plugged into a small monitor, isn'...

Re: wii U

I have one. It's by no means perfect but worth it if you can get one cheap. Off-TV play can be a godsend if you live with a family, and there are definitely some very good games, many of which are exclusives. It does also have a few ports of stuff like Assassin's Creed, CoD and the Arkham games, tho...

Re: What's your favourite Nintendo arcade game?

Arcade Donkey Kong first saw in Blackpool & some kid told me not to bother as it was a waste of money and he died within seconds. They had in Porthcawl and there was always crowds playing it and I became addicted! could never get past screen 4 when you rescue Pauline, use to play the Atari 2600 ver...

Re: Too many worthwhile games?

I've gone from having a Wii U, which got one good game every 2 or 3 months, to Switch, which is getting 2 or 3 a WEEK. It's embarrassing how fast my pile of shame is growing.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

WHERE ARE FOLDERS?!!?!? I've stopped buying any more NeoGeo games until I can plonk them all in a nice neat folder rather than having dozens of them all cluttering my desktop.

Re: Electron Game: Left to right racer?

The Electron was my first computer, too. Loved it.

Anyway, US Drag Racing by Tynesoft? If you Google it you'll see an image, embarrassingly I'm on my phone and can't work out how to attach one to my post!

Re: Controversial magazine Reviews/Scores

One notable controversy was when GameSpot fired an employee due to giving "Kane & Lynch" a mediocre score. Apparently this didn't bode well with the publisher and they put pressure on GS to fire him. But it infact was a very boring game and is now a forgotten franchise and it did rise a few eyebrow...

Re: Controversial magazine Reviews/Scores

On the subject of controversial reviews, I do remember very vividly the 65% given to Sonic 2 in GamesMaster. Too easy and too similar to the original were the main complaints, so to be fair they did justify the mark and it wasn't just a case of trying to get attention. Yeah I recall people saying t...

Re: Controversial magazine Reviews/Scores

How did Rise of the Robots fair? I remember it being hyped in previews but being censored. That's an interesting one because, on the Amiga at least, there was a clear discrepency between the mags who were courted by the publisher and given advance review copies and lots of access and those that wer...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Really good news about Doom. I don't own a PS4 or XBO and my main gaming PC is getting a bit long in the tooth so this means I'll finally be able to play it! Bethesda really do seem to be the first third-party to go 'all in' on Switch. Ubisoft apparently have a decent hit on their hands with Mario &...
