Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Picked up a few more releases this week, really liking just how much retro content I can get for the Switch right now! Darius Collection, Kunio Kun Collection (was gonna pass on this but the improvements made to the performance of some games was too good to pass up), Konami Arcade & Castlevania Coll...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Im down for buying DMC again (4th/5th time?). I love these Switch ports, will be getting the Resident Evil ones at the end of the month.

In the mean time, I've been playing Katana Zero, which is a fantastic side scrolling action indie game. Surprisingly great story as well. Definitely worth getting.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

102 hours later, Yakuza 4 complete (100% completion). Loved it. Some silly plot issues here and there but its yet another strong Yakuza game. Now to take a break until June where two more Yakuza games are released. Can't wait!

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Yeah, the port is insane in terms of detail. I loved what M2 has been doing with these ports, ended up getting all the 3DS games as well while I wait for Shinobi and GLOC!

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Virtua Racing is ace. I've been dipping into it this week, unlike the arcade original its 60FPS, looks amazing on the handheld screen. I've kinda gone on a mini spending spree (again) with Switch this week, getting Virtua Racing, Cuphead, Katana Zero, Konami Arcade Collection (the Japanese one, with...

Re: Collecting ideas

I actually collect Capcom games. Basically going for all console releases, and I'm a fair way to that goal. But the one big issue, especially these days - cost. I got lucky and grabbed the Mega Man games before they shot up in price - Mega Man X3 for the Snes (PAL), Mega Man the Wily Wars (any regio...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I personally found CV4 one of the easier/less hard ones. Its fairly designed in my experience so while its not a push over, it doesn't have any points where the game really blocks your progress hard. Only points I think where it really ramps up is the final couple of stages but I think the game chec...

Re: PS4 Exclusive Recommendations?

Mini games in Yakuza could be a full game in themselves, I' must have spent 10s of hours in the arcade, Karaoke and Mahjong alone. That's probably part of the reason I put on average of 100 hours into each new game on release (and playing 4's remaster on the PS4 at the moment, I can see me very well...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I'm playing Rondo of Blood. Absolutely fantastic, though I'm somewhat concerned about how badly my reflexes are actually dwindling, given that I'm told this is an easy Castlevania clear.... I wouldn't say Rondo is super easy difficulty wise, its not the hardest CV game in the series compared to say...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Cuphead - an ideal way to smash up or throw your switch. Probably the Darksouls of the run n gun world. Beautiful though. Nah. Cuphead doesn't hold a candle to Contra Hard Corps (especially the PAL version) in terms of difficulty. Cuphead is actually pretty darn forgiving by comparison! Though I ca...

Re: Konami Anniversary Collections

In for Contra and Castlevania for sure, especially if we get some of the more obscure ports of Castlevania releases.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Almost done S ranking the missions in Devil May Cry 5. Loving it. Also been playing several ports of Street Fighter 2 - Gameboy, and Mega Drive, Switch and Snes ports of Championship/Turbo editions. Never realised how hilariously low the frame rate on the GB version was (its legit awful). But it doe...

Re: PS4 Exclusive Recommendations?

Kiwami is a remake of the first game. So a fine place to start. Technically from a modern standpoint 0 is the best place to start as they added/retooled a couple of bits in Kiwami to tie into 0, so parts of the plot make more sense but you'll hardly be lost playing them in either order. Plus almost ...

Re: PS4 Exclusive Recommendations?

The Yakuza games. Not really exclusive, there are pc versions and a couple of Wii u games(?) but you can't get them on Xbox yet. Infamous games are worth a punt and likely dirt cheap now. The knack games, the order and killzone can be picked up cheaply and all worth time. Technically there are only...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Oh yeah, there's some hilarious Euro Jank and Japanese shelf filler games available on Vita, that said I still vastly prefer it to the 3DS library outside of Capcom's and Nintendo's output. Just last week I finished up playing Catherine Full Body on the Vita. Story began annoying me because a) Vince...
