Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

My take on this whole randomly generated content thing is that it suits some games better than others. Dead Cells, for instance, is the kind of thing I can see some people loving while other folks find the randomised aspect of it frustrating. Something like Downwell, on the other hand, seems to us i...

Re: Can i get some feedback?

It could be worse. He could be an IGN reviewer. :wink: To add a bit of levity to this thread,it might be worth mentioning that last time I was in my local GAME branch, I overheard somebody at the counter say 'Yeah, I've heard Filip Miucin and those 30 guys who write his pre-draft articles all liked...

Re: Can i get some feedback?

There was a link to buy the shirt (and while I was there I had a look at the user's other designs), it's been modded out as there's a rule that users with less than 50 posts aren't allowed to trade. I've seen the image before, I'm confident this isn't the artist for a number of reasons. I've no qua...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Quickly popping in to share this week's video, which I've had to post a day earlier than planned due to stuff and reasons, etc. In this one, I take a look at the Sega Game Gear version of BUBBLE BOBBLE - and even get into the way it differs from the Master System port it got beforehand. https://img0...

Re: Can i get some feedback?

He's using Paint to edit a design. Since this isn't pixel art done old skool, it's fairly evident he's not created this himself. You're a good one for assuming ill intent of people, aren't you? I'm personally inclined to give the benefit of the doubt until I'm provided with reasonable evidence to d...

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

Folks who have hacked the NES Mini have found they can add HUNDREDS of games to it. Which begs the question: if the scope was there for Nintendo to provide more, why didn't they? Sure, the RRP would have likely gone up, but it would have been worth it to some folks. But why should they add more? Ma...

Re: What are you currently playing?

My latest diversion during ccoffee breaks has been Fast RMX on the Nintendo Switch. Some of the reviews I saw for this were a bit mealy mouthed. It's not a perfectly designed game by any stretch, but its a REALLY good little racer. The phase shifting mechanic makes it stand out from F Zero and Wipeo...

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

Nintendo have every right to do this now they are releasing the games gain. Romsites devalue the product. I think the flipside to this is that a lot of folks are becoming resentful of being asked to pay for the privilege of playing old games they already paid for when they originally released. Plus...

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

As far as CD based systems go the Playstation has a higher death rate Replacing lazers wont ever really be a thing, the market isnt that big and most people have a "Its broken, bin/sell it" attitude to it I have read of some using PC CD-rom drives and replacing the drive with that I spotted Zedlabs...

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

"Video games as an art form" In that case FIfa/COD are the picture of that tennis player scratching her arse. Thanks for that. I've lost half my cheese sandwich now! Lots of good points raised in response to my last post. Sadly, I think there's a great deal of truth in them. I doubt Nintendo, or an...

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

Oh its real, could of gotten a clone for less, but waiting to hear back on if they are decent Im also keeping my eye on other loaders for it. Oh, NICE one! Gotta say, solutions to optical drives like that do interest me. I hear almost unanimous bad reports about the Chinese GDemu units, though. The...

HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

I figure this is probably as good a time as any to start banging the drum about my Youtube channel. It's been in the pipeline for a while as it was originally due to launch in April of this year. But good old Youtube and their stupid January policy update meant I had to alter my plans substantially....
