Re: Tempest 4000 Announced

I feel a bit let down by this game. The gameplay lacks the risk vs reward element that made Space Giraffe so good, the difficulty level spikes hard on certain stages and graphically it’s a bit of a mess leading to plenty of ‘what killed me’ moments. It also seems to have toned down Jeff’s usual humo...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Also very much enjoying a new horizontally scrolling shoot 'em up called Earth Atlantis that has some really unique visuals. Got sent this for review today. The visuals are something else. The game got a bit dull long before I finished the main Quest mode. Kind of liked it overall. No bloody idea w...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Donkey Kong is a very nice surprise. I'll buy that.

Carcassonne was the only thing that really excited me on the Direct. I love that game.

Mario Party looks decent.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I was waiting on E3 to see if I should keep or sell my Switch. Now I just want to throw it in the bin. That was a terrible presentation. Worst one I've seen during E3.

Re: From The Forum issue 183 - Tetris: Best puzzler ever?

Tetris is good but gets a bit too intense later on and is super repetitive. Chime (Xbox 360) takes the concept and makes it a whole lot more interesting.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Im not sure how that works, but wont they just patch firmware and games to check for it being connected to the USB port? I know the Tegra exploit can't be stopped, but won't they stop something as simple as a USB connected device? I'm no expert but the claim is that you can boot into the custom fir...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Well Nintendo look a bit screwed. Team Xecuter's Switch dongle comes out in a couple of weeks and will run everything and can't be blocked by firmware updates. Eek!

Ranarama on the Speccy. Not as good as Quazatron but still pretty good to be fair.

Re: MAME - what do you use?

Old thread but I downloaded MAME again recently looking to get the latest version. One thing though, the interface now is really clunky. It looks like it is designed for cabinets. I prefer the classic old look where you got a lot more detail on the front end. On new MAME's frontend you can see 12 ti...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Riddled Corpses EX.

I've mostly played it on the PS4 (to get screenies for review) but it's cross-buy and the Vita version is very capable. No cross-save though. Decent but derivative rogue-like twin-stick shooter. I've put in like 12 hours and am still enjoying it.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Far Cry 5. Great game. Great ending. I finished this last week. Did you resist or comply? Whichever one you did you need to look up the opposite ending as they're radically different!! I loved every minute. I'm just mopping up the last few trophies for the platinum. Just in time for the dlc to star...

For 2017 it was Nier: Automata for full retail and Jydge for budget.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I can't stop playing Chime Sharp. Chime was my favourite 360 game and the sequel is currently in the PSN sale. I'm currently number 1 on a few leaderboards which is a bit mad.
