Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Picked a few games up on sale: Blazing Chrome River City Girls Ori and the Blind Forest Blaster Master Zero 2 Blasphemous So yeah, plenty to play (and I have Dead Cells to keep me company for the rest of the time). I've cleared the first four levels in Blazing Chrome and love it. Its a mix of Contra...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Anyway, back to Switch purchases - I grabbed Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Groove Coaster and with the left over coins, Katamari Damachi for £4. Yooka Laylee is..... Its seriously one of the best platformers I've played all year. Have you played New Super Lucky's Tale yet? It came out last ...

Re: Tiger Road - US versions?

1. Only US versions of the game? Not quite sure on that one, but port wise we got: Amiga Atari ST PC Engine (Japan only I think?) Amstrad CPC ZX Spectrum Commodore 64 MS Dos Granted several of the computer ports might well have been UK/Euro centric ports, I'm not sure I'm afraid. Either way, most of...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The heck is this about Capcom not releasing games anymore? Resident Evil 7, Remake 2, Mega Man 11, Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5 are all fantastic, and I personally loved Street Fighter 5 as well (now that its got much more content). Plus they've released tons of current gen ports (many of w...

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

Ditto, Shenmue 3 arrived for me as well. I've got a save right at the end of Shenmue 2 I need to finish (again) before starting it. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes for 3.

Re: Samurais & Ninjas

For Samurai's - I've always loved the Samurai Shodown series. But my pick for best would no doubt be both Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan and Ishin from Sega (PS3 and PS4 respectively). Amazing games pack with content, combat and lots of Yakuza action and silliness (and Mahjong). Ninja wise it'd have to be Shi...

What Remains of Edith Finch (read many good things about it) and Plague Tale: Innocence (story-driven puzzle-action game). Both for PS4.
Both are excellent. Only issue I had with Plague Tale was some encounter design at the end of the game, but all in all it was a refreshingly fun game.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Spent a fair few hours today trying the Yakuza 7 demo (which was released nice and early ahead of its Jan 2020 release). I love it. Its strange, its an RPG now yet dipping into how the combat works reveals that its actually pretty deep in some aspects. Some hilarious enemy designs (the most creative...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Terry's a blast to use in Smash Bros. Its funny just how well he (and the Capcom bros) translate to Smash while still retaining their trademark fighting styles, though I put that down to Sakurai and co. just having such a great eye for detail when it comes to these things. Top notch list of tracks a...

This months pickups so far, as always, its more stuff for my Capcom collection: https://i.imgur.com/pBCyLKk.jpg Street Fighter Zero 3 for Matching Service - basically a Zero 3 re-release with online play, I will admit, despite owning many copies already this one was purchased for the awesome manual/...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Finished the first Bayonetta. Bloody great game aside from QTE's, some of which give you hardly any time to react and resulted in needless insta-death. Also managed to miss a lot of the vinyl pieces and Alfheim challenge portals so those must have been better hidden than I expected... Other than th...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Been playing around on the Resident Evil 5 and 6 demos currently out on the Eshop. 5 plays very well, looks damn nice as well. I'll certainly enjoy replaying it yet again on the go. 6 looks bloody amazing on the small screen, but with that brings some performance issues at major firefights. Nothing ...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

My first ever eBay purchase? SNES Super Probotector. Paid with a cheque in the post. Those were the days! My first purchase was Blood Omen for the Playstation. I also got super lucky and got my Mega Man games and many rarer Capcom ones for cheap before they ballooned in price. I have noticed more a...
